Acc to MAC: MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer is 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.
One end of the tube is the coral corrector, which has peachy undertones and is mainly to conceal the blue/ green veins under the eyes. On the other end is the yellow corrector, which is to combat any redness on the face and to brighten up the under eye area.
The concealer comes with two doe foot applicators.
What I like about MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer (Double Ended)
- I love the formula. It’s like THE concealer for under eyes. It’s so moisturizing and light for delicate under eye area. The concealer glides on your under eyes without any effort. You’ll never face any tugging with this concealer.
- I like the dual concept of corrector and concealer in one compact tube. My under eye circles are never the same so I can adjust the colours of the concealer according to how my good or bad my dark circles on a particular day.
- It looks amazingly natural. Yesterday especially, I applied only select moisture cover under my eyes and set my under eye area with powder . There was absolutely nothing else on my face and it looked just like the part of my skin. To check , I asked my hubby to figure out if I was wearing anything on my face , he couldn’t. 😛 Then I asked him to see my under eyes specifically and he took almost 10-15 seconds after good staring to figure out that there was something under my eyes. 😀 But he was so highly impressed as to how natural the concealer looks.
- I can also use the yellow corrector for highlighting my features such as bridge of my nose, cheekbones etc.
- I have not faced any slipping of concealer in this weather atleast but considering the smoothness of the concealer, this would definitely need a good setting powder during summer time.
- The concealer has medium to buildable coverage. It can become completely opaque depending on how you use it.
- A full value for money since you are getting two shades of concealer in one tube
What I don’t like about this concealer:
- If not set with powder, it tends to crease. Especially for people who have oily skin, they need to take care that they powder their under eye area as to avoid concealer settling in your fine lines.
- It is ot amazingly long wearing. After around 5 hours , I could see the the concealer had sort of lost its intensity and freshness.
- I feel that it’s an excellent concealer for winter-autumn-spring time but might not be that great for summers. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer would fare better during summers.
Here is how I use MAC Select moisture Cover Concealer:
Moisturised bare eye. I did this little tutorial first thing in morning because my under eye circles are the worst that time.
With the dual concealer you have to sort of get used to how much coral and how much yellow would work best for you. After using the concealer 2-3 times you get an idea yourself. Although Mr Mickey Contactor suggested that you mix the two shades at the back of your hand, bring the resulting shade closer to your skin tone shade and them apply with a brush. I personally like to apply directly on my under eye are and then blend accordingly.
My under eye area needs more brightening than correcting. So I put two dots of coral corrector and three dots of the yellow corrector.
Blend both with finger
Blend that also and that’s it. I set it with powder and I am good to go. 🙂
Here is how the final under eye area looks. Once I powder it, it would mattify and set.
Overall I am loving the buttery smooth texture of the concealer. And I really really hope that this becomes a part of their permanent line. It’s one gem to have in your stash. Loving concealer like never before. 🙂
