This weekend I finally picked up some MAC concealer â€“ Select Moisturecover in NW 25.
Select Moisturecover is the latest addition to my concealer arsenal. Iâ€™m a concealer junkie, and currently Iâ€™m rotating Make Up Foreverâ€™s Lift Concealer in Dark Beige 2 with Biothermâ€™s Forget It Concealer in 30.
I decided to try using a pink-toned concealer because at the MAC seminar I attended a few weeks ago, the instructor told us that most people (even those with yellow undertones) should wear a pink-based concealer underneath their eyes. Also, in this monthâ€™s Allure thereâ€™s a brief feature on Bobbi Brown, and she suggests wearing a pink-based concealer underneath a yellow-based concealer.
I really like the color of Select Moisturecover concealer on my skin. I was afraid that the pink tones would make it look obvious, but the pink tones really seem to cancel out the dark circles. It has a good consistency â€“ not too thick, not too thin â€“ and I like the doe foot applicator. Plus, when I blend it in with the 252 Large Shader Brush it looks great!
However, the looking great part doesnâ€™t seem to last long. Unlike Biotherm or Make Up Foreverâ€™s concealers, which donâ€™t budge and can last throughout a sweaty dance class, within a few hours I Select Moisturecover starts to slip off my face. Ugh! My concealer quest continues.
The fact that I can make it work when I layer one of my other concealers over it saves this concealer from a lower rating. I plan on keeping it because I like the color so much.
If your skin isnâ€™t as oily as mine you might really like this concealer. And if youâ€™ve got dark circles then you might want to try a pink-toned concealer, I think it really works wonders.
