Very Moisturizing for a Concealer
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
This concealer is very blendable and creamy. It actually blends in and doesn't just sit on top of your skin. I noticed that it works better if you use a primer or powder first.

Great for Dry Skin
Tags +Natural looking
This concealer does not settle into the fine lines and the dry patches under my eye. The NC42 concealer is the prefect highlighter for my NC45 skin. Love it

Priming and concealing

If you are looking for a light way concealer, that is what you need, is really thin, and it NEVER creased on me, and it is a good eyeprimer too.

Great for Dry Skin
Tags +Natural looking, dry skin, under the eyes, dry blemishes
This concealer works really well with dry skin. It feels lightweight, so it can be used under the eyes as well without looking cakey or dry. I would say the coverage is light but build-able to medium. It doesn't cling to dry patches and will kind of fill in any dryness so that the skin looks hydrated. However, it does not last long even when set with a powder because it is very liquidy. After about 2 hours even without touching your face, it seems to disappear slightly. It lasts longer under the eyes than on blemishes.
Still, it's worth the price and good to have in your collection for those really dry days when you need something light and quick that won't cling to dryness or for those times when you have really dry blemishes and everything else cakes up on them...this wil fill in the dryness and provide nice coverage.

Great correcting color & coverage
Tags +Natural looking, mature skin
I really like the color and texture of Select Moisturecover and wonder why it isn't talked about more on YT. I use it in NC45 for the inside corner of my eye and where my eye glasses leave those telltale marks. It goes on opaque and works even better with the addition of a peach corrector (even though it seems to have salmon in it ) for discolored areas and under the eyes. Some concealers or correctors have talc in them or are too waxy and they make fine lines stand out. I don't have that problem with this formulation though it can look cakey if too much setting powder is used. This blends nicely into surrounding foundation with a damp makeup sponge.

A Perfect Concealer
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking, anyone and everyone with dark circles
This is a sensational concealer for under eyes that need a little extra help. The doe-foot applicator glides on with ease and deposits just enough coverage without added pulling under the eyes. I adore the shade NC 20 as it matches my coloring and undertone and doesn't create a raccoon effect. It blends well and gives me that added boost of confidence.

It migrates.
Tags +Natural looking, youthful dry skin with no fine lines.
I wanted to love this product. It goes on nice and moisturizing, but it moves. It was highly recommended to me by a MUA, but this was more of a miss than a hit. Setting it with powder, no matter how little, seemed to make it cake. To not set it, then go out, it just melts, and not in a good way. It travels. And if you dare touch anywhere near your under eyes, it comes right off. I'm going to give the Pro Longwear a go and see if I can get a better outcome. If you have no fine lines and like near sheer coverage, this might work for you, as long as you don't need to powder. I would suggest this for those in the 20-30 year age range. It's great for dry skin as well.

Average product
Tags +Natural looking
Im not impressed by this product. It of course doesn't work for my oily skin. Even though my clients do not prefer this product, the reason is simple. People usually have their pro make-up done for special occasions, they prefer something long wear so that their money can be well worth and they don't have to do touch up after every 5 minutes.
This is not a great product to cover under eye issues, it creases a lot and due to its dewy finish it can't be wear alone.
I don't bash products off until all the possible options fail. Anyways all in all MAC haven't let me down on this one, even though this product needs major alteration.
This product is perfect for shaping lips. Every time I use bold lip colors, I use it around the mouth to clean up. Since majority of women have dry skin around their mouth area, this product glides on like butter especially under lower lips. it is good for sharpening contour lines because of its light weight and it doesn't look cakey.
if you want to give it a try, sure you will find a way to use but if your sole purpose is to buy a good under eye concealer then Pro long wear is a best option.

Will Re-Purchase this concealer!
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking
I have been looking for a good high end concealer for quite some time now. I went to a MAC store the other day and this is what one of the girls recommended for me. It is such a great fit for my skin. I love that it is small and compact (easy to travel with) and it just works very well and looks so natural under my eyes. Will definitely be re-purchasing this product! Only reason it's a 4 our 5 stars is because I rarely ever give anything 5 stars, there's always room for improvement. :)

LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

Really good coverage and very blendable. I would recomend this for people who may have drier skin because it moisturizes the eye area pretty well.

Not impressed with this concealer. I find that it doesn't do much to hide my dark circles and instead settles into and accentuates the fine lines under my eyes. Will be returning.

Nothing Special, but Good On-the-Go Concealer!
Tags +dark spots light/medium coverage, normal/dry skin on-the-go
I was recommended to give this concealer a try by a Mac sales associate. I love that this concealer has a doe-foot applicator. It is best for someone who does not need or is not looking for a full coverage concealer as it does not provide that like the Pro LongWear Mac concealer does. It works best on pigmentation spots, but I would not recommend this for under eye circles as it is more of a light to medium cover. I also find in creases when you apply it under your eyes. This concealer does not provide moisture as said in the product description. There is moisture obviously when you apply it, but after that it dries up. Another con is that this concealer does not have long wear. Overall, I would only recommend this concealer if you are someone who doesn't have much time to apply makeup, is late to work one day or has a busy schedule as the applicator is excellent if you are on-the-go. Otherwise, I would consider it just an average concealer. I am not wowed enough to repurchase this product again.

Favorite Concealer
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
I own Select Moisturecover concealer in NC50 and NW45. I also own Studio Finish (a heavy duty concealer w/ SPF and other good stuff) and Pro Longwear (great for mixing with other products) in the same shades but Select Moisturecover is my absolute all around favorite. It is excellent for the eye area and very hydrating and light (compared to other MAC concealers) with good coverage. It does exactly what it says it does, no creasing and the doe foot applicator suits the consistency of the product. Highly recommend.

Excellent Concealer
Tags +Natural looking, everyone who needs a little help.
I use and love NC 20 in this formulation; it is easy to use, stays where I need and looks natural and not artificial. The creamy texture is very forgiving to the tender under eye area.

YOU WILL LOVE IT!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, undereye circle full coverage break-outs, softening "creases" highlighting
I've used the product for 3 years and have no need to try another!
I'm 53, w/mixed Mediterranean bloodlines (mainly Greek), so dark circles are just part of our heritage. I have to have something that covers is one go -- and this is IT!
It provides the most excellent coverage w/o being "masky." Wonderful consistency: neither too thin or too thick. Long-wearing; lasts all day! Color I chose (NC20) is perfect for my fair-to-medium w/yellow undertones skintone. Applicator is really, really usefull for getting in corners, or spot dabs. DOES NOT CREASE OR SETTLE IN FINE LINES! Very moisturizing. Enjoy!

select moisturecover-NC20
I'm very fair skinned and NC20 turned very orangey under my eyes. I also noticed there was barely any coverage. I opted for the select moisutecover because I have very dry skin. This product was not drying but ultimately did not act as a concealer.
