MAC Studio Finish concealer is a cream concealer which provides full coverage. MAC SAs generally suggest this for those with heavy dark circles.

Price: Rs. 1300
MAC Studio finish runs a lil darker than the rest of the concealers hence I chose NC42 which is slightly darker than my skin shade. The MAC SAs usually give NW for under eyes but since I do not have severe dark circles, I opt for NC range as it does not make my under eyes ashy even after an entire day.

It contains SPF35 which is an advantage. It comes in a cute little tub packaging which is very handy and travel friendly.

Since it is a cream concealer, I mostly use my fingers or a flat eyeshadow/concealer brush for application. However, I feel it blends better with fingers.

As you can see, NC42 has strong yellow tones which neutralizes any darkness on both the lids and the under eyes.
