My take on liquid/cream Concealer

This was my first time using liquid/cream concealer. We were recently on a search for the perfect concealer for my sister and found this baby in the process. Its called MAC'S Select Cover-up Concealer.

The other ones were full coverage and pretty good too but they creased like mad :S and its just too hectic to keep retouching concealer especially when on the go and so this one seemed pretty nice.

It is a very nice creamy consistency and spreads easily too. It seems a little creamy on application but then dries to a matte finish which is perfect as non matte concealers will enhance your wrinkles and dark circles! So always try and select a matte concealer or set it with loose powder for a matte finish.

The best thing about the consistency of this concealer is that because its liquid, you can build it up without it creasing even a tiny bit! This also will stay put the whole day because it does not crease and sets like foundation on your skin as soon as you apply it.

I noticed that the colors in this concealer range come out a shade or two darker than what MAC colors usually are so always test prior to buying and try a shade or two lighter than what the MA suggests.

If you are looking particularly for a matte, natural, non creasing concealer, I guess this would be it! Its 11 quid for a tube and you need just a tiny bit so do give it a go gurlies :)

I bought this just recently and I really like it, it provides enough coverage and doesn't crease as you said. I apply mine with a concealer brush and set it with Mac MSF in Natural which is just amazing!

I love this concealer! I apply mine with the 217 brush and it blends it like a dream.
