MAC Concealer Review – Select MoistureCover



I really stumbled upon IMBB looking for a good concealer review.
Rati suggested that I get the Studio finish concealer from MAC. Read the review here – MAC Studio Finish Concealer Review . So I happily went there to get my first concealer!!!:D
The MUA there got the MAC select Moisture cover and covered my dark circles. I still wanted to try the studio finish concealer.The studio finish concealed my dark circles(DCs), but it just dint look like me!!! ( The MUA  joked saying I’m not used to seeing my face without dark circles).:P

So anyway.. the select cover looked more real on my face. And the MUA insisted that I get this since it is easier to use and I dint’t need heavy coverage. [I thought otherwise!!]
I got a NW 35

The MAC website says-

A luxuriously blendable moisturizing concealer in a tube with built-in doe-foot applicator. Goes on exactly where you want it: blends in for a natural satin-smooth ultra-moisturized finish. Layers up for added coverage. Line-softening, skin-perfecting: The Pros’ “select” for under-eyes and delicate skin. Wide shade range provides soft, natural camouflage. Use with the 194 Concealer Brush.

Comes in a typical concealer tube with a doe tip applicator.

This costs INR 1050 for a 50ml tube.

This is medium consistency and creamy, and it blends very easily. 😀

I dot this under my eye with the applicator then tap with my ring finger to blend this. Super duper easy!!! Just set this with some loose powder and you are set for quite some time!

MAC Select Moisturecover brightens up my eye area. 😀 but wont work on my blemishes alone because its considerably darker than my skin tone and I don’t use foundation. But I’m not complaining! Takes care of my DCs. That was what I got this for!

Pros of MAC Select Moisture Cover Cconealer:

  • Does not dry me out.
  • Blends amazingly well!!.
  • It provides medium coverage, but it is quite buildable.
  • Easy to use (for first timers like me)..
  • Not heavy at all.
  • Varied shade range.
  • Looks very natural.
  • The MUA was of great help! I couldn’t have done it on my own.
  • Hygienic. No dipping finger! 🙂
  • Lasts for around 3 hours nicely.. but then it slowly fades away..
    The fading away is uniform (but it creases in deep set lines).
  • Non patchy

Cons of MAC Select Moisture Cover Cconealer:

  • No spf.
  • Medium coverage. (for some)
  • Contains Parabens. (is there any concealer that doesn’t? I really want to know).
  • The MUA said that the MAC studio fix will photograph better and is perfect for brides/ movies.:-|
  • Is not as long lasting as the MAC studio finish concealer. I’m not expecting flawless finish.. but I expect this to last long!
  • Weird but.. it does crease under my eyes.. I know I’m blending it right.

When I spot this, I blend it and within minutes it creases again. I don’t use a lot of the product. I don’t know where I’m going wrong.

All in all its something that I am in love with! Till I used this, I dint know make up could get so easy. The effort I put into make some other products work, is something I realise now!

My rating :-* :-* :-* :-*. 😀

(I wish it came with spf)

                1. hawww noooo!!! 🙁 i just said such nice things to you O:-) . shall i send you my bata shoes and streetwear pink glitter eyeshadows? :P:P

    1. i wantt your wala concealer also now! :-(( i want to look pretty and dc less like you! then even i’ll put my close up eye pictures. :-((

      1. finish up your present concealer first and then buy a new one. Y:) ou know what you wrote about “you are not used to seeing yourself without dark circles”,I totally relate to that.I also had this feel when i bought my first concealer. No dark circles and blemishes kind of make you feel fake na…but honestly you get used it it. Use this concealer and may be set it iwth powder. The powder would give a slight coverage and might prevent creasing. Just keep the powder very sheer or else it might look cakey.

        :-* :-*

  3. yesss!!! its so nice when you say you understand! somehow it feels like something is wrong with me otherwise! :P:P i want the other concealer for pretty pictures!!:P:P :cute: :cute:
    when i wore this only, my brother said i look plastic!!! :-X :-X :-X boyss!!! grrrr!!!
    i used to set it with the maybelline compact.. then i got the lakme rose powder and its doing a better job. 😀
    the MUA actually sat and laughed when my reaction to DC-less face was wwwwwooooooooo wwwwwooooooowwww wwwooo :P:Pi was not like wow! it was like wooaaa! what did you do to my face?!!!?!?! :P:P she was like you are not used to seeing yourself without DCs. :P:P and laughed for a good 2 minutes!:P:P
    oh and also this one is not waterproof. i forgot to mention this. :(:( soi some residue stays when washed with water, but the colour vanishes!!

  4. Can any of you girls give me the link to concealers tab for MAC on website..i couldnt open any products page on website.. :silly: ?:-)

    1. haha i even mentioned it on the post, thank you minnie mee! :P:P but then i think i changed that sentence to something else..:-S!!! THANK YOU MINNNIIIEEEE MEEEEE!!!!!!!! :-* :-*:-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
      my DC’s are not leaving me alone! :((

  5. It surely worked..thanks a ton IK..My face is otherwise flawless but my dark circles (sigh sigh).. :-(( :-(( think they will not go in this lifetime..can u suggest any cheaper options for concealer..havent used any concealer before..i heard awesome reviews about colorbar concealer but could’nt find it in market. 😥

    1. Hey Anoushka..
      thats the only website i knew of.. this is the one that i use.. there is another review on IMBB.. there is a link in the review above. click the MAC Studio Finish Concealer Review.
      about the the colorbar concealer, i dont think it is being manufactured anymore.. i’m not really sure tho.. cause it dint show on their website when i last checked.. the studio finish concealer is for around 800-850 bucks and MAC offers a wide shade range which will give you something for your skintone!:)

      this is my first concealer too.. so hope all that i knew helps you!:)
      and i know what you are saying about the dark circles.. :sweat:

  6. :heh: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: I have no dark circles problem……so I don’t care :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: all those with DCs go to bed early like me….at 10.00 PM sharp :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: nothing can keep me awake after 10 p.m…..

  7. hey ikky nice review!! 🙂 🙂 my internet went cranky for the last two days!! :-(( :-(( i am also looking for a good using the body shop tea tree concealer for now.but am thinking of getting a MAC one after this gets over..but i have oily and acne prone skin!! dnt know whether the studio fix will suit me

    1. heyyy sree!! thanku thanku. :-*
      i’d say.. just go to the mac store the MUA will be more than happy to help.. use this concealer under 1 eye.. and the studio fix under the other (or whatever you want t conceal), then roam around for a while…… look around and all.. check your make up… see what you like then… and get that. 🙂 or go back the next day and get that! 🙂 you’ll even have time to see how they react to your skin. no?
      and how is the tea tree concealer? 😀 i was aout t get it like before mac came t hyd.. :P:P

  8. the TBS one is ok kinds nothing much..i guess i’ll do a review of it sometime..hmm i should go to a MUA then..but you know what the MAC MUA s around here are quite snobbish!!i went there once and they behaved quite badly..anyway let’s see coz the TBS one will last me for sometime!!

    1. oh really? i heard that the MUA s in GVK here were quite snobbish too.. but then they were really good to me.. like women usually dont like me. :P:P but she was still sweet. :P:P but then i saw her being a little distant and slightly cold towards some other girls..
      i’d like to read the review! though my heart is really fixed on studio fix this time! :P:P 😀

  9. Oh Ik dear, its against my oath to wear concealers 😛

    Does not matter whatever i put it always crease, i think i might be too wrinkly :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle:

    One solution i found is to use foundation instead of concealer, as i think concealers are sort of too thick, but seeing this one you got it really look encouraging :cute: :cute: :cute: :cute:
    .-= deb´s last blog ..Aint they looking great =-.

    1. hehe thank you!! 🙂 you know thats what the MUA told me.. she said blending this wont be a problem.. its lotion-ey so.. :P:P i will get the studio fix one soon!!:D:D
      i cant wear foundation.. i’m really scared to put so much on me.. moisturizer and sunscreen are only like OMG so much.. i hardly put the concealer on also.. :-((
      but this creases Deb!! a lot.. 🙁 try both in your mac store.. i’m sure you will like something!:):)
      against your oath to wear concealers!:P:P
