Get it right with the MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette

This MAC palette has both concealers and correctors and are limited edition. But don't despair if you want them, the palettes are still available online at maccosmetics.co.za when I checked this morning.

The palettes come in two shades, Light and Dark.

 

The palette in Dark has six shades.  Four concealers: NC45, NW45, NC50, NW55 and two colour correctors: Ochre and Pure Orange.

 The pallet in Light also has six shades. Four concealers: NC15, W10, NC20 and two colour correctors: Pale Yellow and Pale Pink.I have dark skin, but I found the orange colour corrector a bit harsh for my under eye circles, the ochre created a much better effect.

The colours maybe intimidating, but never fear, playing around with the colours will allow you to customize what you need the product to do for you.

 The texture of these correctors and concealers are very creamy, very blend able, full coverage and won’t settle into fine lines if applied correctly. To apply, gently pull the eye taut and using a swiping motion, apply with your ring finger. This will prevent the concealer from settling into fine lines. This is the method I use  when applying cream concealer. A client of mine, who had come in for a bridal make up trial said it had a drying effect on her skin and this may be the case with certain skin types. It you have super dry skin and lots of fine lines; you can skip this product or simply apply the product with a damp sponge or concealer brush to sheer it out.

The packaging is sleek with a clear plastic cover showing the colours inside. These are super-pigmented. I did find the black plastic palette case a bit cheap and flimsy, for R450, I expected a bit more.

 Overall, make up artists will benefit most from these to use in a starter kit or travel kit.

This will work great in a  starter pack because you'll need to use a tiny amount of product to see the effect so it will probably last you a while. The darker and lighter shades could also work as highlight and contour creams. 

Having said that, the shade selection could have been wider.

Internationally, 4 palettes were launched, which included a Medium and a Deep palette. So for those ladies with medium skin tones, I'd advise to skip this.

There are definitely cheaper alternatives. The NYX range is super affordable and has a wide selection of colours to choose from.
