“MAC STUDIO WATERWEIGHT CONCEALER is an ultra-fluid formula with medium-full buildable coverage and a natural finish. While it hydrates and gently diffuses the appearance of imperfections, it also helps reduce the appearance of under eye circles, dark spots and discolouration.”
It looks fresh for a solid six hours on my combination skin and covers almost everything, from my dark circles to uneven pigmentation, without oxidizing, and it doesn’t pool up in my fine lines, buuut it does. Not. Cooperate. With. Dry. Skin.
Even if your skin is just the teeniest bit dry.
Wearing this, the dry parts of my combo skin, especially the areas under my eyes and around my mouth, look even drier than usual IMO, and the longer I wear Studio Waterweight, the worse those dry areas look. They become patchier, flakier and look more uneven. And layering a powder on top seems to intensify the effect.
3. Works well in concealer cocktails
I haven’t been reaching for this to wear on its own because of the dry skin issue; however, I like how it mixes with liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer, and even face moisturizers, which I’ve been doing to bump up the coverage and moisture. It does seem to be less drying when I’ve mixed it with something else, and it still adds enough coverage without feeling or looking heavy.
Ideal for normal and oily skin
Studio Waterweight is one of the lightest, MOST comfortable concealers in the MAC concealer fam, and it comes in a pretty wide 16 shade range. The color also stays true with little-to-no oxidation (always a good thing), and if you have oily or normal skin and want flexible coverage and a matte finish, it could work for you. That said, I’d proceed with caution if your skin is even a little bit dry…
