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!

  1. I have a *lot* of concealers right now, but that seems like a really good product! I'll have to keep that in mind when I run out :)
