Product Review: MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer

Hello everyone! Today I'll be reviewing another concealer: my MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer. This is my only MAC concealer so I can't compare it with the other MAC concealers.

Product Description:
Liquid camouflage for the skin. Texture-free, virtually invisible. Comes in a tube. Blends in. Brightens and lightens dark areas, erases spots, evens-out skin tones. Makes skin flaw-free. Use pre-foundation, or on its own. Don't reveal it, conceal it!

This concealer offers a light to medium coverage, which is good enough for me because I don't have extremely dark undereyes. I find that it does the job of covering the discoloration. I cannot say how well this will work for people with very dark undereyes.

So here's my eye without concealer:



And here using my MAC Select Cover-Up in NW20:

 

As you can see, it did the job of brightening my undereye. I find that it blends easily. This does not cake as easily as cream concealers but I find that it still cakes after sometime.

So here's the rundown of the pros and cons:

PROS
  • Tube packaging makes it very hygienic; no dipping
  • Blends easily; no tugging
  • Does the job of concealing
  • A little goes a really long way!

CONS
  • This doesn't cake as easily as cream concealers, but it still does, even with eye cream and setting powder because I have REALLY oily skin.

Will I buy this again? I'm not sure, since there are a lot of concealers I want to try, but so far, among my non-mineral concealers, I really like this!

Where to buy and how much? In MAC stores for P900.

Crystal, great review! Kaso i won't really shell out 900 bucks for an undereye concealer :)

hey, have you tried the bodyshop's crayon concealer? try mo! it's nice, too. i find that it lasts long on my oily lids and undereye area. i havent really observed if it cakes on me, though.

Crystal said...

ah yes i know someone who has that. i asked her if it cakes e sabi niya sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't hahaha. but yeah it does a good job of covering her scars.

I tried this and used it for under the eyes. Found it a bit drying though so I switched to select moisture cover :)

Crystal said...

nikki, haha BI ba ko? sorry :P

sush, buti na lang i have oily lids kaya i don't find it drying.

i love this concealer too! It doesn't cake compared to the Studio Finish one. I'm using NC20.. BTW, yung NW25 pinkish yung undertone nya?

Crystal said...

khymm, yung NW25 is more of a peach/salmon undertone. i don't find it pinkish naman.
