MAC Select Cover up Concealer Review

MAC Select Cover up Concealer Review



Yeah!!! Got this one a long time ago, say more than a year. Now, I don’t have the case and the product is almost 75% used. Yes, I eat up my products J.

My MAC Select Cover up concealer is in shade NW35. This is a warm sandy shade and not like those whitish shades. A bit more natural and it works fine for me. I don’t have any major dark circles to hide. I use concealer very less, just to even tone the skin around my eyes when I feel like. This concealer is liquid in consistency and  very light. It covers under eye area and any dark shadows very well and a very little quantity is required, say a drop only. Awesome pigmentation. This concealer comes in a tube packaging which I love. It is easy to take out the desired quantity from tube and it’s hygienic too.

It is perfectly travel friendly due to its classy tube and cute small cap. It blends very nicely with the skin and doesn’t leave any patches or any marks. Not hard to apply or blend. Works like a dream and absorbs nicely.

Coming to the staying power, I think no MAC product fails on this point. All MAC products have great staying power and they don’t leave you embarrassed anywhere or looking for touch –ups. That’s why MAC is what it is.

It is good for oily skin (not best J – better options available for oilies). For oily skin, apply this concealer and set it up with a compact. And you are done.
