MAC pro conceal and correct palette makeup review & swatches

MAC pro conceal and correct palette product review

I use the MAC studio finish concealers for areas that need more full coverage like spots, darkness around the eyes and tattoo coverage. Its good to apply a small amount either with a synthetic brush or fingers, then set with powder.
I've just purchased it in a Pro palette of 4 shades -NC15, W10, NC20, NW20 & 2 colour Correctors in Pale Yellow & Pale Pink. These are a slightly different formula to the studio finish concealers, slightly creamer. Also a friend pointed out on instagram that this formula doesn't have the SPF 35 which is better for photographic purposes, as the SPF is what tends to make the product flash back lighter. It costs £35.
The swatches were done on my skin tone, I'm light, about NC15/NC20 in MAC. The palettes come in light, med, med deep & dark.

The makeup I used on myself and a mini review of a few of my favorite Bourjois products-

 

Face-

MAC- Prep and Prime skin- As you can tell if you have read my previous posts I always use a primer before applying foundation as it gets your makeup to last on your skin, and helps with a smooth application of  foundation.

HEALTHY MIX SERUM FOUNDATION- 16 hour radiance booster- A while ago they had sent me Healthy mix serum which I love for a natural finish foundation. Even though it is a sheer foundation it still covers redness, it has a natural satin finish that mimics the look of radiant skin, not too shiny not too matt.

MAC- Studio finish concealer- I have spot prone skin so need to go back with concealer in target areas, this MAC concealer is a  full coverage.

HEALTHY BALANCE UNIFYING POWDER- This powder is ultra fine so sets the foundation without looking powdery and dry.

 

Eyes-

SMOKY EYES TRIO EYESHADOW- I used the three eye shadows from the 13 brun wood pallet, I've got to say I am picky with eyeshadows but these were easy to blend and did have a good colour pay off. I was a fan of this colour combination  this palette comes with a olive green, warm red and black, these colours suit a lot of people but especially green eyes as the red in the brown will make green eyes look brighter.

LITTLE ROUND POT INTENSE EYESHADOW- I went back into the outer crease of my eye with the #10 black mineral based eyeshadow as you only need a small amount to create drama.

VOLUME CLUBBING BLACK JACK MASCARA- This mascara is great if you like volume, you can really build up your lashes to create drama.

QUEEN ATTITUDE KHÔL KAJAL- I used this all around my eye and in my waterline, it does last well in the waterline.

 

Lips-

MAC- Oak lip pencil, To the future pro longwear lipstick & clear lipglass.
