MAC Select Coverup Concealer - NC 45

MAC Select Cover-up Concealer: NC 45

My favorite concealer up to date is definitely this concealer. I was matched at the Mac store for NC 45. When the the guy tried it on me it was perfect! I loved the shade, i loved the coverage and I loved the feel. I may have been a little over excited with this being my first MAC concealer purchase, but hey ;) 
I must say though, I am never going to the MAC counter again. The store is fine its just the counter. I feel like they treated me badly because of my age (i'm 16 and I will be 17 in one month!) So, skip them. I'm going to the store from now on.

I have been able to use this product in multiple ways:
 - As a concealer under my eyes applied with a pointed blending brush,
 - mixed with my moisturizer as a tinted moisturizer
 -  mixed with my primer as a tinted primer 
 - and on blemishes. 
Favorite use? Undereyes!

~$18 for .33 FL OZ

This has become an everyday product for me for under my eyes. It also covers blemishes well but thank God i haven't had any in a while! I use the Sonia Kashuk pointed blending brush to blend it over the under eye area and it has been nothing but perfect. It also applies just fine with my fingers. It dries to a more matte finish and stays put! Ive been using this for a good 2 weeks now and even without being set with powder it doesn't crease and it stays put!

 One small drop goes a longgg way!

 *blended out slightly

 *blended out completely! Looks just like skin!

**UPDATE: One thing I might say is that this concealer might be drying for those who have dry skin around their eyes and if you are trying to cover a flaky blemish or the area of skin covered is dry, it will not hesitate to accentuate the dryness. Make sure you moisturize first!

I love, love, love this concealer, I plan to try other Mac concealers in the future, but I think my next mac purchase will be a lipstick!

Thanks for stopping by!

Collective Haul! Target, Mac, Walmart, Big Lots, Lee Beauty Supply

A few things I recently added to my collection! 


Elf Complexion Brush: Great brush for light bronzer or contouring and blush. Also great for touch ups. It came with a plastic brush protector thing that i put it in and slip it right into my bag along with my Elf Complexion perfection! ~$3

 Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush: The smaller of the 2 brushed shown. Awesome for blending eyeshadow and pointed so i can put shadow on my lower lashline and inner corner as well! ~$4.99

Sonia Kashuk Pointed Blending Brush: I must pick up another of these! Awesome for blending eyeshadow in the crease AND for applying concealer! If you love applying concealer with a blending brush rather than your standard concealer brush you'll love this. ~$3.99


Ruby Kisses Jellicious Gloss in Cotton Candy: Light milky toned pink, mostly clear on the lips but moisturizing and a great gloss! Also smells and tastes like candy! Not necessarily cotton candy though. I plan to pick up other colors. Review here!

L.A. Colors Lipliner in Rose Brown: My go to my-lips-but-better color! A matte, rosey brown and it looks so natural on me! I absolutely love it and its AUTOMATIC! woohooo! I combine it with a lipbalm to keep my lips from drying out.

 Eyes and Concealer

Mac Select Cover-up Concealer (NC 45): My favorite concealer of all time. Love it for undereyes blended with my Sonia Kashuk pointed blending brush. Wonderful color and def worth the price tag!

Ruby Kisses HD Cream Eyeliner in Dark Brown: Awesome gel eyeliner that I've been using everyday. SUPER long wearing, convinient little pot but I wont be buying black because the WNW black cream eyeliner is my all time favorite :)

Covergirl Mascara: I forget which one this is...its the orange one and strangely it came with a purple cap. So, I don't know what thats about. This is my second tube of this stuff and it works nice, but def not my favorite. Still looking for my all time favorite mascara! Any suggestions??

Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to follow! Reviews coming soon :)
