I wanted so badly to love this, but I don't. First of all, I'm not a big foundation person. I like letting my skin breathe and only using concealer on an as needed basis. This concealer is runny and yet soooo very hard to blend. It dried before I could even apply it properly and ended up looking very streaky and uneven. Yuck! I'm returning this tomorrow. The search continues for a natural looking concealer...
This may be a great concealer and the only one you may need if you are a "normal person". Unfortunately, I'm not as I have inherited dark circles and "puffs" (let's not call them bags) under my eyes. I use a pot concealor first, then apply foundation, THEN apply a liquid concealor such as MAC Select Cover Up. Ths would not work well for me all by itself. :-( Even after ALL OF THAT, I still have the circles and puffs, just not quite as noticeable. Double :-( :-(
I wish this worked for me. It was so hard to blend and so dry! And I have oily skin. I looked like a freak. I have given up on concealor.
Ugh. The coverage was too sheer for my undereye area (or anywhere else), it creased a lot, and it dried to a powder that just made my eyes look old. I took it back to the store the next day.
This sinks into the skin in a very natural way but it doesn't even partially cover the darkness on my undereye area and I don't even have bad circles! I did give this a decent rating though because it works well as an eyeshadow base or as a quick fix if I put on too much blush or bronzer.
Beautiful beautiful stuff. This concealer blends so easily, yet actually manages to cover my horrible dark circles. It looks natural and doesn't cake or smudge or look obvious, and lasts through the day. Rave from me!
This concealer has been a miracle for me. I have hereditary dark circles and I have never been able to cover them w/out looking cakey under my eyes. W/ the Select Cover-up, I used only a tiny bit of product, blended w/ my finger, and my circles were nearly gone! The packaging is very convenient, the product relatively inexpensive, and the consistancy very creamy,not to mention the great color match. This stuff rocks!
This concealor is great! I tried it on at the MAC counter and was impressed with how it sank in quickly, blended easily, but left the pigments there for good cover. I have normal to oily skin with a few acne scars. This covered them well and the color looked natural on me (NC30). I paid £11 for it, a bit more expensive than if I had purchased this in the US! Here are the ingredients:
Water, propylene glycol, mineral oil, tea-stearate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, propylene glycol stearate, magnesium aluminum silicate, cetyl esters, lecithin, butyrospermum parkii fruit (shea butter), xanthan gum, butylene glycol, dimethicone, polysorbate 85, lanolin alcohol, stearic acid, cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides....
For you folks out there with dry skin, stay away from this product. My skin under my eyes was dry and cakey even after my usual under-eye moisturizer. I just wasted my thirteen dollars....I think I will put it on my swap list
I tried MAC's old pot concealer and didn't like it a bit...it was too hard to spread out evenly. With this concealer, I don't have that problem at all. And for some reason this concealer seems to be a better color match than the old pot form.
