I use this for my undereyes. I'm NC30, I use this in NW15. It looks natural and not too highlighted. I think the studio moisturecover runs darker than their other concealers. My undereye circles are not really blue or purple but more of a darker, hyperpigmented reddish-brown colour. However they are not too deep because my eyes are monolid therefore not deep set.

The usual issues I run into are caking and having my mascara transfer onto the area of the undereye I have concealer on and have my eye makeup mix with the concealer (very gross!) At first I tried the select cover up because it is way better packaging and value, and they were both MAC liquid concealers so I thought there was probably not much difference. But that was very cakey, sticky, and not long lasting at all so I tried this instead.

This lasts all day for me. I use the MAC timecheck mineralize lotion under it to make sure it doesn't settle into fine lines, then put this on with my finger, and set it with Clinique translucent powder. It doesn't have a cakey appearance because it's so slippery. Even though it is slippery the lasting power is FAR superior to Select Cover Up.

I don't mind paying a lot for something as long as it's good value. However, there's only 5ml in this, and because of the tube design, I won't be able to use every last drop. I would consider this product expensive and the select cover up cheap even though they're both $23 where I live because of the quantity and packaging design.

I've used up a couple of these a few years back and this is a nice concealer for covering up dark circles IF you don't have super dark ones. For my undereyes this doesn't provide enough coverage but I like the light texture, it blends out nicely and is comfortable to wear. It creases a bit but not too badly. Good color range as well.

This product works great for my under eye circles, although it is a bit sheer it gives it a more natural look. I sometimes apply 2 layers under my eyes for night time events. My tone was NC30 but I definitely recommend you match it up to your skin tone by asking for assistance since matching skin tone is everything. I'm not sure about how long it wears but it definitely is easy to blend. I found that if I wanted higher coverage, using a dabbing motion with a BRUSH would help. Or, a fluffy brush. I use a small flat brush and use it like a fluffy brush and the results still turn out great.

I love this concealer because this is the only concealer which doesn't settle into my fine lines under my eyes. It provides a sheer/medium coverage therefore it is not suitable for the people who have really dark under eyes. Also I bought it for INR 1700 which is equivalent to $34. I found it expensive because the amount is a bit less. But I would still repurchase it cause it is hydrating and makes my eye area look younger! Love this product:)

I have this MAC moisturecover on NW35 and I am really pleased. It has this very comfortable and easy use tube with a little brush, it conceales perfect and it gives a very natural finish, it's very long lasting and powder really stays if you have this concealer on. It's also very easy to blend. In my opinion it smells like coconut, or whatever it is but it smells really good! I personally dont care if my products are MAC or from the Makeup Store, so if you're trying to save money I wouldn't buy this concealer, but it is deffinetely worth-buying.

The Mac Select Moisturecover concealer is one that is not heard a lot about. In my review of the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer I stated that these two are very similar in formulation and consistency. I would say the Mac offering provides a little less coverage. The moisture in this means its great for dry skins like mine. But to be honest, as is my case with lots of concealers, it just isn't that amazing. Yes its good don't get me wrong, but its something easily "dupable" in a cheaper alternative (Maybelline Fit Me and Instant Age Rewind Eraser). And once again for the price $34 Australian dollars for only 5mls, I would rather pay the extra $3 dollars and get the Clarins Instant Concealer which has triple the product and is a far superior formulation (see review). The upside of this concealer as opposed to the Clarins and Maybelline offerings is the shade range. Mac are known for the incredible shade range, and therefore very pale and also deep skin tones will find a match.

I bought this in NW15, specifically for my under eye area, where in my experience, concealers tend to crease and make my eyes look worse than using nothing. The color is a good match, but that's about the only positive thing I have to say. I used this under my right eye yesterday, and used my $2.99 LA Girl HD concealer under my left. A check later in the day revealed that the right under eye area looked all creased, whereas the left eye looked smooth and fresh. I'd rather spend $2.99 to look good than $19 to look bad.

This is my No1 product and is used everyday! I use this just on my eye lids and under eyes only to give me a refreshed look. I'm normally a NC20/25 in Mac but have the NW15 as it is going near my eyes this gives it the non tiered look. If you want to use this to cover blemishes then I think this is too watery and not thick enough. It doesn't go into any lines as my mum uses this as well.
