Review: MAC Studio Finish Concealer and MAC Lipstick in Russian Red

Hi everyone!

Last time (can't remember exactly the date), MAC Eastwood invited me to be their guest make-up artist. As a token, MAC gave me 2,000php worth of make-up products. They let me choose what I want and ended up getting the MAC studio finish concealer and MAC lipstick in Russian red (so lucky they have it on stock that time!).

So let's get it started! ;p

Concealer is no doubt one of the best "secret" of a woman. (girls aminin nyo yan!). All you just need is to put it on your imperfection and voila, you're all set!  I've been looking for a good concealer since I have a bagful of eyebags. haha! Until my friend, Andrew Jardenil (one of the finalist of MEGA fashion crew 2012), introduced this awesome concealer to me. I fell in love with the product and told to myself, "you'll soon be mine". *evil laugh*

And wish was granted, this baby is all mine now!

 I chose NC30, since I think it's the safest color to use for my clients especially for my models cause they're normally fair skin.

Patted a small amount over my mole. Can you see the mole?? :) It's hardly noticeable! How lovely it is!

What I like about this product:

- very portable, it's as big as MAC eyeshadow cases. It won't take too much space in your kikay kit.
- lightweight yet will give you full coverage!
- waterproof
- blends well
- with SPF 35!
- it covers imperfections perfectly.
- didn't give me breakouts

What I don't like about this product:

- unhygienic. I find pot-typed products very unhygienic. Need to use a brush especially if you have long nails, the cream might stick inside your nails.
-  pricey. But it's worth paying  for!

Will you recommend this?

YES! :)

Let's move on to the next product.

The MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red! :)

I heard a lot of good reviews about this lipstick. When I was the guest make-up artist, this color was currently out of stock. And I tell you, a lot of customers been looking for this! So it made me curious and wonder what's with this color and these girls go gaga?

FACT: Russian red is MAC's number 1 selling lipstick in 8 countries! This was described as "the perfect red lip"- not too cool, not too warm and not too deep in fact, it's incredibly rich! It's matte, which I uber love because I'm not a fan of glossy lipsticks,.

Will you recommend this product?

  3. What shade of MAC concealer would you suggest for me? I'm an nc15-20 and I have more of a pink undertone than a yellow undertone.




  4. @iya,

    I would suggest to try NW (natural warm) shades since you have a pink undertone. Mine kasi, yellow undertone ako that's why I chose NC (natural cool) shades. :)

  5. I was looking for a good review for this product and I found it on your blog :) thanks! I am now a new follower
