I love this concealer, I only use it on my undereye circles and its great! It doesn't really crease and it has a nice thin smooth texture (its not too think and doesn't go all cakey) while still managing to cover everything I want it to :)
I got this concealer in a swap and I used it once and ho-hum, whatever. Then I ran out of my liquid foundation and I decided to use this...MAGIC! I don't like the idea of using a concealer all over my face, but it's the best foundation ever and I don't need any concelaer. I tried all the MAC foundations and I just didn't get it- it was off my face in hours no matter how much I set it with powder and I even carried around the compact to freshen it up throughout the day. I wanted to GAG everytime I looked in the mirror and saw my same uneven skin with spots and discoloration. A little of this goes a very long way and now the lifetime struggle I've had with finding a makeup that lasts all day is GONE thanks to this product. I dot this all over my face, blend in, and then follow up with my Bare Minerals powder foundation. I realize that it sounds like I probably look "cakey" or overdone, but I don't use a lot and my skin is FREAKING FLAWLESS everyday with the most beautful natural color that matches my neck perfectly! I FOUND THE MAGIC SOLUTION FOR ME! I'm 30 years old. It only took 15 years- and if I've been experimenting this long...trust me if your makeup doesn't stay on...this is great stuff.
I love this concealer. It provides excellent coverage. It's like a mix between a creme and a liquid. Feels lightweight. Long lasting. I can wear nc42 or nc43. This is one face makeup from MAC that I absolutely adore.
This is my HG concealer. I am NW20. It goes under, on top of, and all around my eyes every day, as well as wherever else I need it to go. It blends well with my skin (albeit it's a little bit heavy coverage, it's ok because it matches my skin tone well). And it doesn't tend to crease or fade during the day. The only reason I'd ever need a retouch is if my eyeliner or mascara drops down to my undereye area.
My HG concealer. I have dark circles around my eyes as long as I could remember and have tried numerous brands out there. Christian Dior, Maybelline, Physicians Formula, etc. and nothing suits me. They're always the wrong shade, always ends up cakey and make my undereye looks way lighter than the rest of my face at the end of the day or they don't last long.
MAC Select Cover-Up NC42 is just perfect for me. It blends really well, doesn't end up cakey, and staying power is just superb. Will definitely repurchase again and again.
im a guy and i aslo hav needs.. this concealer is fantabulous!!
my classmates and friends complimented on my youthfuil look..
the undereye bags vanished! its creamy and its not drying to the undereyes..
i wont use it to blemishes though.. for the face id stick to mineral make up
nc30 is super light for my nc40.. but its the only shade available for me that time..
This is my current favourite concealer. I recently finished off my first tube and decided to switch back to my old Stila concealer, to use that up... let me tell you, making that switch proved to me just how good this mac product is! There's a wide variety of shades, which allows you to pinpoint your colour pretty precisely, and it's got a sort of sheer formula that allows you to build up the coverage to the degree you want it to be. Of all the concealers I've ever tried, this is the one that creases the absolute least on the skin under my eyes... there's still some slight creasing, I'd say I have to blend it out maybe twice in the course of eight hours? The thing that's nice though, is that when I do blend it out, it doesn't just rub clean away, it seems to redistribute itself nicely. One thing I don't like is that it's hard to get all the product out of the packaging. Additionally, this seems to work best as an undereye concealer... it lasts all day on my undereyes (literally from first thing in the morning until I wash it off at night), but it slides clean off the oilier areas of my face after about an hour, maybe two. Overall though, big thumbs up! It does what I need it to do.
I've tried every available concealers out there - including all the drugstore brands. This one really saved me! I'm NC30, normal skin (a bit oily in the summer). I use this every day for my dark circles. I use my fingers when I'm just going to work, but use a brush if I want a more polished look. I use a very small amount and dab it on. My colleagues and my friends always comment on how awake and young I look. But there was this one day I forgot to put it on (imagine!) and EVERYBODY asked, "You look tired! What happened?" - forgetting my MAC concealer happened!! The best thing about this is that it lasts all day (I put on my eye cream first) and NC30 is a perfect, perfect match. I love this! One little suggestion for MAC - I wish this is one of those concealers that comes with a brush applicator. I don't like getting my fingers dirty... BUT what's a little washing if you can get flawless eyes!! :)
I bought this in a NC20 and use it on select days to brighten up my eyes or touch up on various areas on my face. It works brilliantly! It never fails to get the job done when touching up. And its lasted me about a year so far(10ml), a little goes a long way with this!
Bought this in NC20 but is so yellow toned on me, ok for blemishes but undereyes draws attention to any fine lines, its good value and lasts for ages but not for me
