The best concealer I have ever used so far but sadly, it did not work for me.
MAC Select Cover-up Concealer
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!
MAC Select Cover-up Concealer comes in a cute plastic tube with a black screwcap making it travel-friendly. Also its transparent so that we can make out the product left.
The consistency is just fine, not too runny, not too thick - just perfect. I don't have major dark circles and I hardly cover them. So, I mostly use this concealer to cover my acne marks and I must say it does its job perfectly. It covers up the acne and acne marks completely and gives a flawless finish.
No matter how I apply it ~ dabbing lightly with my fingers, with a concealer/blending brush, wet sponge, it gives a perfect finish. The only thing you need to take care of is, you have to work with it real fast as it dries up quickly. Also, it needs to be set with a powder and because I rarely wear foundations, I generally set it with a powder with yellow undertone.
UPDATE ~ Now the most heart-breaking thing is, it gave me really ugly Cystic Acne. Yes, you heard me right. It was really hard for me accept this fact but eventually I had to. Imagine, all this time I was wondering, why was my skin breaking out and was trying to hide the acne and acne marks with the product responsible. Actually, this was not the only reason, that is why I could not figure it out in the first place.
All in all, I think this is a perfect concealer to cover blemishes, acne, acne marks etc. It gives awesome coverage and looks flawless. But sadly, it did work for me but may work for you.
