MAC Select Moisturecover Dual Concealer

A limited-edition dual-sided Select Moisture Concealer featuring two tones to help conceal blemishes and correct dark circles under the eyes. Line softening, moisturized finish makes it ideal for undereyes.

Cost: Rs. 1400/8 mL

I bought this for a bunch of reasons:  I have dark circles, and I have deep-set eyes - trust me, it's a bad combination.  I needed a coral-based concealer for the dark circles and a more yellow one for lightening.  I had planned on buying two separate products from another brand, when this collection launched, and the concealer seemed made for me :P :P  The cost was another reason.  Buying two separate products would have cost me more.

To use:  Mix sufficient quantities of both correctors to get a close match for your skin, apply to the areas that need it (in my case, undereyes), dab with a sponge to take off any excess, and set with powder.  (Check this article/video for better detail.)

I try to mix it to get a colour similar to my foundation shade
makes it easier for me to figure out how much to use of each corrector.
My take on this so far (have used it only twice now - and I haven't really used very many concealers so far):
  • It's perfect for people who have not been able to find a suitable shade of concealer - like me, I need two separate shades to get a proper effect.  I mix and use for concealing, then use a bit more of the yellow to make the area look a bit brighter.
  • I liked the packaging - definitely easier having to search for one product rather than two :P
  • I mix it on the back of my hand, and I end up wasting a lot of product that sticks on to my hand.
  • It's a limited edition product, so if you love it, and you run out of whatever you have stocked up - uh-ohhh!!!
  • I would use this for now, but I don't know if I would repurchase.  Oh well, it's limited edition anyway, so I might not get it to repurchase either :D
Update:  With a little practice, I found that I can use the coral corrector first - dab dab little of it on the undereye area - pat with little finger - then dab dab little of the yellow corrector and pat with little finger - to get a good coverage.  This way, I waste no product either.  Takes a bit of trial and error but is easy to do :)

  26. Nice review..Think it will work for me too..I have dark circles (read wearing glases for almost 20 years) :-((( and my complexion is fair but a bit pale kinds..Do you think it will work, Mrs. Rads..?

    ReplyDelete
  27. nice review! i realy wanted to see it all mixed and all.. so thankoos.. but soo much product will get wasted na! btw is it easily blendable?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Neha - It blends easily enough Neha..apart from the product getting wasted with mixing its quite okay :)

    Prachi - I would recommend this only for people who cannot find their match in regular concealers - only because it involves some amount of mixing to get the desired colour, at least for me.
