Hello girls, hope you all dong well.
Today I am going to review my MAC concealer. Many other concealers have been already reviewed here. I didn’t want to keep this one being left out as I do like this concealer a lot. 🙂
Price: INR 1000/-
Quantity: 10 ml
What MAC claims about this concealer?

Use pre-foundation, or on its own. Liquid camouflage for the skin. Texture-free, virtually invisible. Comes in a tube. Blends in.

My take on Mac Select Cover Up Concealer
I had got this concealer about a year back along with the complete MAC base products. Since I have an oily skin type and dark shadows, I require good amount of coverage. And hence this was what the MUA suggested me. I mainly got this for concealing my dark circles and hyper-pigmentation patches. The formula is thicker than the MAC moisture cover and thinner formula than Studio sculpt and Studio finish which are cream concealers.
If anyone is not aware of basic facts about concealers let me brush up in brief. Concealers are basically base products applied to conceal dark spots, uneven skin tone, under eye circles, moles, tattoos, birthmarks and other discolorations. But do you know not the same concealer work for hiding all of these??
Yes, different formulas work for different types of coverage. For example, the blemishes and moles are best concealed with a creamy formula and discolorations as well as under eye circles are concealed using a liquid formula.
The concealer I am reviewing is a liquid concealer which effectively covers up my under-eye circles and pigmentation around the mouth.
It has very nice tube packaging which I prefer.
Swatch of the product :
This drop is more than enough to conceal eyes, mouth area and side of nose.
This is how I apply on my under-eye circles. Hope you notice the difference in before and after pictures. :))
I chose early morning to take pictures as this is the time when I have really bad under-eye circles and puffy eyes. (sorry for the unruly brows)
Product applied as dots around the eye.
Left-Before concealing. Right-After blending the concealer.
P.S- In my tutorials I do use a color corrector along with this….will be reviewing that soon. 🙂
Pros of Mac Select Cover up Concealer
- Definitely keeps the promise of good coverage.
- Finishes with a satin smooth texture hence amazing for oily skin.
- Blending is like dream.
- Tube packaging is something I prefer than pot.
- Liquid formula works brilliantly for the delicate eye region.
- Many shades to choose your perfect skin tone match.
- Quantity is good enough to last me 6 months even if I use daily. I just require a small drop of it to conceal my whole face.
- It can be worn just on its own. You can skip foundation if you want more subtle, natural everyday make-up.
Cons of Mac Select Cover up Concealer
- Inspite of good coverage I have to use color corrector because I have very dark under-eye circles.
- Cost might be a good factor as all MAC products tend to be at higher end. But if the base is good anything over it will look good. So I don’t mind spending so much on my base product.
My rating: :-* :-* :-* :-*
-1 because I still require the color corrector with this to hide my dark circles completely. But that’s just because of my low hemoglobin. This might work differently and more effectively on others.
