Amazing Product

This is Heaven sent! I have Facial hair on my chin and neck area that leaves hair bumps and discoloration. Select Cover-Up totally conceals the areas and it boosts my confidence as well!

Great product!
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking, covering dark spots
I absolutely love this product. A friend from college introduced me to Mac products and told me that they have the best concealer; so I tried it 3 years ago and I've been in love with it every since. As a woman of color; I have uneven toned skin and it's mostly around my eyes and mouth, but this concealer covers those problem areas and makes my face look flawless and evenly toned. I def. recommend for Black women and other women of color. :)

select cover up
Tags +Natural looking, under eyes
Wow! I didn't think anything could even come close to being as go-to as my all time favorite pro longwear concealer, but i must say this one gives it a run for it's money. it's like pro longwear without the pump, without the dryness and quick drying...ness, and this concealer just MELTS away into your skin...seriously though, i barely even blended this stuff and it was gone in my undereye area, completely invisible to the eye yet my circles were faded significantly. love love love love it!!!!

Just what I needed
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing
This concealer/corrector is the only thing that actually works to brighten my under eye and conceal dark circles. It stays put all day and blends in so well with my MAC face and body foundation. You only need a teeny bit for lots of coverage. My recommendation, don't use any primer underneath this product, this makes it too "cakey". It works best on it's own. Love this stuff!

Best Concealer
Tags +Long wearing, under eyes, covering imperfections
This is the best concealer I have ever used. A little goes a long way. It lasts a long time throughout the day and provides wonderful coverage for under eyes and blemishes. I'll be using this one for a long time.

A must-have for my makeup bag!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, evening skin hiding flaws brightening under eyes
This product might as well be called Miracle in a Tube, it is THAT good! A tiny bit under my eyes and to even out any problem areas (blemish, redness, whatever) and a little blot powder to set and I am out the door most days. Instead of the pancake-batter-thick nightmares that you have to pile on, a tiny amount of this product goes a long way, and camouflages anything. My skin just looks bright and healthy, not super made up (though this product also works fantastically with foundation, too!). Would last through a hurricaine, doesn't crease, gentle on the skin....I cannot say enough about this product!

I have undereye circles and was looking for something lightweight that would cover them but that wouldn't look cakey. This gives the best skin-like finish and a little goes a long way! :)

Amazing under eye concealer
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking
I use NW40 as an under eye concealer and as a highlight color. My foundation color is NC50, NW45 & NW47 depending on the season. This liquid concealer is my favorite because it works so well and looks so natural

Awesome coverage however...
Tags +Full Coverage
This gives awesome coverage however if you're on the oily side like me, it does tend to make skin more oily. Stippling finishing powder after foundation application helps a lot though. I sometimes mix this together with my studio fix fluid foundation and apply with a foundation brush and it creates the perfect foundation for me! Great product!

Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, hiding scars
My daughter's been trying to get me to try Mac for years, so I finally broke down and gave it a try, beginning with the Select Cover Up. Initially, I didn't like the price and the size of the tube, but now...I'm in love!
See, I've suffered from adult acne resulting in a lot of scars all over my face. Being African American makes it even harder to find a concealer or foundation that provides full coverage. But, this concealer does it ALL! And, I only have to use a few little dollops to hide my imperfections.
Select Cover Up looks so natural on my skin and hides everything so well, I could wear it as a foundation. I also love how light it is and how easy it is to apply and feather into my face.
I'm in love with Select Cover Up and will never use anything else ever again.

nice coverage and great consistency
Tags +Full Coverage
I really like this concealer. This is definitely close to being my number one. (I am curious about mac's prolong wear concealer since I have heard great things about it. Curious to know how it differs from select cover-up.) As for this concealer, I like the consistency (creamy, smooth and very blend-able.) It is not runny or thin but quite substantial. You definitely do not need to layer another concealer on top of this. It actually covers imperfections...it hides dark circles amazingly. A little goes a long way.

Pretty great!
Tags +Full Coverage, Natural looking
Goes on smoothly and blends easily. Good coverage, and you only need a little bit. My only suggestion would be to add sunscreen, preferably a mineral-based one. And let me say MAC's shipping is the fastest anywhere! Free shipping usually means slow shipping, but not with MAC. Very impressive!

Good concealer
Tags +Full Coverage, Natural looking, under eyes
I have really bad under eye circles. I've searched for a concealer to cover them and this one seems to do well. I have yet to try the other concealers but this does a nice job. It kind of sets in my fine lines so I do a little concealer on the circle area, not right under my eye. It works best with a makeup sponge

Absolutly Love this product!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing
This is the first concealer that I ever purchased from MAC several years ago and I can honestly say that I can't see myself using any other concealer other than this one. I currently have two concealers that I use, NW20 which I place on my lid as well as a highlight to contour my eye brows. My "Hide-N-Seek" conceler which I use for my dark circles under the eye is NW30 My foundation color NC45. This liquid concealer is my ABSOLUTE favorite because it works so well and looks so natural on my skin

DARK CIRCLES BEST FRIEND
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, under eyes, dark circles, natural finish
This concealer is best for my under eye circles. This is the only MAC concealer that I am able to use under my eyes and get the amount of coverage that I need. This is medium coverage, but that is as good as it gets when we are talking about the under eye circles. This concealer creases the least out of all of my concealers, and is very natural. LOVE this product overall.

Better than the rest

Once I found the right shade for me (NW15) I was very happy with this concealer for the under eye area. A little goes a long way, it melts into the skin without looking cakey or settling into lines.

Brightening, not drying and covers like a dream. The tube lasts forever because you need just a tiny bit per application.

Go-to Product
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, best value
I love this product, and have used it for years. I use it almost every day to cover the dark circles under my eyes, acne scarring, etc. It works wonderfully. I don't feel caked in make up, but I know I am getting full coverage and I don't have to worry about it rubbing off through the school or work day. You don't need very much to cover all of your problem areas, and it lasts for ages. I have bought replacements over and over.

In love with the coverage, love the hydration
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
I love the full coverage this product gives. It also works well on my dry, KP skin. I have a lot of redness in my skin to cover, so I'm pleased with how well this covers. This product wears well for 8hrs without dry out or caking.
I wish that they made this in NC15.
