I am back again with my monthly dose of MAC pampering from the coolest bosses. I was more than elated to pick up this concealer from MAC as I had finished my existing one and also I wanted something with heavier coverage, thanks to my ever-increasing blemishes.
Rs. 1900/- for 3.5 gm.
A color true concealer that provides medium buildable coverage with a natural satin finish. Formulated with the same Shade Intelligence Technology as our Matchmaster line, this color true formula lasts for up to eight hours. Helps conceal and correct the look of under eye circles and discolorations. Comes in a convenient portable stick.
My Experience with MAC Matchmaster Concealer:
I quite liked the twist-up stick packaging as sharpening a concealer leads to wastage, due to the consistency. Also touching the face with the wand is not hygienic, so this stick comes handy as you can apply the concealer with a brush or fingertips as per your convenience. The body is typical MAC matte black with an outer paper carton with all the information.
The Matchmaster concealer is very thick and creamy, more like a pan-stick foundation. On application, the warmth of the skin helps in blending and thus the creamy texture helps in the blending. The pigmentation is beautiful and this can be used heavy or light as per the requirement. The good thing about the texture is that, though it is creamy, it does not cake up when you try to build up the intensity.
For me, covering dark circles was not the main concern as I get them only when I am stressed, so I opted for something for all-over face concealing. I was matched to the shade 4 as it was slightly lighter than my skin tone and looking into my concerns of spot concealing. Though this works equally great under the eyes, people with sweaty or very oily skin might have to touch up with compact/loose powder after a while.
The long-lasting formula is no doubt worth praising as this stayed on me for six hours minimum. When touched up with compact, the staying power increases. If you have a tendency of touching the face quite often, you might end up touching-up with the concealer more often. Ever since I got hold of this, I have been digging it like a greedy baby. I am sure this will be finished off unlike most cosmetics in our stash.
Pros of MAC Matchmaster Concealer:
- Creamy consistency.
- Buildable coverage.

- Back to MAC policy.
Cons of MAC Matchmaster Concealer:
