MAC • Select Cover Up Concealer • Review

I already talked about MAC‘s very famous Pro Longwear Concealer here and now it’s the Select Cover Up Concealer‘s turn.

Here’s how it’s described on the official website:

“A liquid camouflage-like formula that brightens dark areas, erases spots and evens skin tone. Use anywhere on face or body as liquid camouflage for the skin. Delivers medium coverage and a matte finish that is texture-free and virtually invisible“.

The Select Cover Up concealer has almost a watery consistency and a light to medium coverage. Even though I would love to have in my kit a product with an high coverage and a skin-like effect, I woudn’t really consider this product a “liquid camouflage-like formula”.

It doesn’t dry out quickly, but tends to get a bit tacky, so my recommendation is to place it on the skin, blend it and set it quickly. I like to use it after my foundation, because it isn’t consistent enough to stay exactly in place under the foundation. BUT, if used in a proper way, it does look lovely on the skin.

 

For what i experienced with it, this concealer doesn’t work at all as an undereye brightener or corrector.

It works best on little blemishes, so, if you need to cover or brighten tiny areas, it does a very good job.

I got it in the lightest shade with a warm undertone, NC20. It may not be an NC15, but it’s a tiny bit lighter than the Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20, because it contains brightening pigments.

Here’s the Pro Longwear in NC15 and NC20:

Packaging

Each tube contains 10 ml of product. Considering that you need a small amount each time and that an average foundation contains 30 ml of product, i think it’s a good deal. I also love the fact that comes in a tube, because it’s sanitary.

Price and Availability

The Select Cover Up concealer is available worldwide in MAC stores and corners and online for $19.00/19.20€. It’s a permanent product.

As the Pro Longwear, it’s part of the Back2Mac program.

“By returning six [6] M·A·C primary packaging containers to a M·A·C counter or M·A·C Cosmetics online, you’ll receive a free M·A·C lipstick of your choice as our thanks to you.”
