MAC - Select Cover-up Concealer – Review

MAC - Select Cover-up Concealer – Review
Price: INR1000, US$17.00
What it claims: 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!
Pros
It comes in a clear tube with a tight tip. Tube packaging keeps it hygienic in the long run and the tight tip ensures that product is not wasted.
It gives a very natural looking medium coverage. Can be built for heavier coverage, which of course can look cakey if you go overboard with it.
Its consistency is liquid like but thick, and is great for eye area.
A little goes a loooong way. I have had this tube for like what, more than six months now? And it can easily last me for six more months. (Needless to say, the amount used varies from person to person also.)
And yes, I do think this can be used on its own, just remember to set it with powder.
Cons
Hehe…. Check this out.

So the tube like packaging is also our enemy. This happened to me when was trying to touch up in a hurry. I guess the tube must have been squashed in my bag, and then the slightest of pressure made this happen. And obviously I happened to have worn light blue jeans that day.
Other than this I have not faced any issues with this product. It can last up to a year for me, so the price seems fine to me.
My Rating: 4.5/5
Don’t ask me why I am taking away half a point from this amazing concealer. It is definitely HG concealer for me.
