Reviewing – The MAC Pro Conceal And Correct Palette
If there’s a brand that probably has the best of everything, then it’s Mac. With this in mind, we recently tried the MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette. Read our full review below!
Packaged in a black palette, the MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette comes with four concealers and two corrector shades in a medium to dark color wave.
Price- Rs. 3,350
Quantity- 6 gm
Expiry- 3 years from manufacturing date
Types Of Palettes
The palettes come in Dark, Light, Medium and Medium Deep ranges. For more details with respect to shades check out www.maccosmetics.com.
My pallete is in the Medium Deep range and consists of NC 40, NW 40, NC 42, NW 43, Rich Yellow and Burnt Coral shades.
How To Choose A Palette?
The shades are easy to judge. An analysis of the various tones in your skin will aid in selection too. Also the employees at the MAC store will help in finding out the right palette for you.
Who Should Use?
This palette is amazing for a person who is into color correcting, highlighting and contouring. using foundation and concealer almost everyday or for every special occasion. This is also useful for a person whose foundation and concealer shades change quite often.
It is also great for a makeup artist who is just starting out and does not want to invest in a lot of products yet have access to a variety of shades.
How To Use?
The MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette provides medium to high coverage and is totally buildable.
The four concealer shades that are provided can be used as concealer as well as cream foundation. The NC (Neutral Cool) shades can be used for yellow skin tones (Indian skin tone) and the NW (Neutral Warm) can be used for other skin tones. The shades can also be mixed together for a custom skin color.
The concealer will help cover under eye dark circles. In cases of severe dark circles, an orange corrector is provided in the shade Burnt Coral. This is a beautiful dull orange kind of shade. Orange will help cancel darkness under the eyes. Then one can go over the corrected area with a concealer to balance out the orange.
The yellow corrector can be used to create the effect of healthy glowing skin. Take the yellow corrector and mix with the lightest shade in the palette (highlighting shade) and apply to all the areas on the face where one would normally highlight such as tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow, chin and centre of the forehead and with the help of a blending or brush or sponge blend till it is seamless.
The yellow and orange correctors can also be mixed with the concealer shades to create custom shades.
The darkest skin tone color in the palette can be used for cream contouring. Apply the shade to all the areas of the face where one would normally contour such as hollows of the cheekbones, temple and forehead, sides of the nose and jawline. Then with the help of a blending brush or sponge blend blend blend!
The concealers can also be used as eye primers and will thus help eyeshadow last longer on the eyelids.
The MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette is multi-purpose and all-in-one kind of a product, as mentioned above.
It is packaged in an easy to use packaging and size.
The concealers have great texture and coverage and last for 8 hours plus.
Their creamy texture enables smooth application.
May not be suitable as a foundation for very oil skin.
Highly recommended for makeup artists and for MAC Cosmetics lovers. It is a great combo of concealer, foundation, corrector, highlighter and contouring product packaged in a single palette.
However if you are a person whose foundation and concealer shades remain the same over the years and may not use correctors, highlighters and contouring products, then you can skip this one. Instead we recommend investing in a single foundation and a single concealer.
Also we recommend buying this directly from the MAC Cosmetics Store. To locate your nearest MAC Store click here.
