M.A.C Mineralize Concealer Review (Beauty Blog Post)

Mineral products are famous for their light feel. While they give you breathable skin, they DO NOT provide the best coverage

I just happen to be a full-coverage kinda gal

In the past, I always counted on M.A.C for flawless skin. M.A.C Studio Fix and Studio Sculpt foundation are both wonderful, and are both VERY THICK. Now that M.A.C came out with a mineral line, I'm interested to see if it works.

First, I tried M.A.C Mineralize Concealer. Nowadays, I wear concealer instead of foundation anyway.

M.A.C Mineralize Concealer Review

(Price: $20 for 5 ml.)

Quality and Performance

  • Texture of concealer is creamy. But it's not thick.
  • Formula is silky and smooth. 
  • Application was extremely easy.
  • Concealer just kind of glided onto skin.
  • Though concealer felt light and thin, it still provided sufficient coverage.
  • My skin saw immediate difference after use.
  • Product also lasted a long time. At least through a couple hours of running around.
  • Overall, I think M.A.C Mineralize Concealer has excellent quality and performance.     


  • I used NW25. 
  • The color is gorgeous. 
  • It really suits my medium-toned Asian skin.
  • I barely saw a difference between concealer and my own skin color.

As you can see, color looks great on my skin. Formula is also nice and smooth.



  • Formula was smooth and consistent.
  • It blended remarkably. 


  • Light weight and breathable.
  • Absolutely comfortable. Couldn't tell I was wearing anything. 


  • Honestly, I wish I got more product for $20.
  • The bottle was tiny.
  • I like the twist top.
  • I do not like the brush. It was flimsy and hard to use. 

So tiny! Why is it $20?

Packaging is cute though.

But I disliked the brush head.

Overall Likes

  • Gorgeous color. Really suited skin tone. (I have always appreciated M.A.C's range of colors.)
  • Blends well.
  • Creamy formula. 
  • Excellent quality.
  • Great coverage.
  • Long lasting.   

Overall Dislikes

  • Too small and too expensive.
  • Bad brush. It's hard to use.




Yes, but only as a go-to.  

I'd like to try others, but will use this as a backup if I run out of choices.
