I'm loving... MAC Conceal and Correct Palette

For some reason in the winter months, I have a harder time finding my perfect balance of the coverage I want from my foundation as well as my perfect highlight.  I've played around with some other brands and formulas, but I came back to my old faithful, MAC Studio Finish Concealer.

To help me customize my concealer in the winter months, I opted for the new MAC Conceal and Correct Palette... 4 shades of concealer with two correctors. The medium palette consists of NW25, NW35, NC30, NC35, Mid-yellow and Mid-Peach.   

Rumor: I had gotten word that while the palette is a collection of studio finish concealers, it's not the same exact consistency.  Verdict: Unfortunately, the rumor was true.  This palette seems a bit more creamy than stiff, which is what I enjoy about Studio Finish concealers; just the right balance of emollience and stiffness.

Overall: I made it work for me using it over my MAC Prolong Wear foundation.  The foundation creates a perfect canvas for my oily combination skin: matte and does not budge!  I've been enjoying this product ever since, especially the yellow! It brightens my under eye highlight without going too light for my skintone.

Have you tried or used this?

Hey Yummy! I tried it on a client over the weekend for the first time and I understand exactly. It was still good but I like the concealer that's thick and you have to warm up with your fingers. I bought three of these, so I have to use them.
