I purchased the MAC select cover-up for 1000 Rs, but it’s all worth it .I have oily skin, and- fair with olive undertones. I have allot of redness problem and plenty of acne scaring on my face. This product covers it all. The MAC Select cover- up coverage is medium to full depending on the amount and techniques you are using to apply it. The Mac Select cover-up has yellow undertones that work perfectly to cover my redness and acne scaring.
It has a liquidy consistency which makes it effortless to blend. I use a Real techniques deluxe Crease brush to apply conceal under eyes and acne spots .You can opt for a lighter coverage by dampening your foundation brush with water and then apply it evenly for natural look .
One disclaimer for those girls who prefer to look matt all day this is not for you .It leaves your skin with a glowy dewy finish, but honestly I love it. I prefer looking glowy not matt. In the summer you can opt to set it with a translucent powder.
The packaging of the MAC select cover up is very travel friendly and one can have full control over the amount of product that comes out .Transparent packaging helps to see the product .I bought it in the shade NC- 40.
HOW TO USE IT –
I prime my face with the BODYOGRAPHY CLEAR FACE PRIMER. Then I use a Real techniques Buffing brush and buff out the MAC select cover-up as you do with a regular foundation. I use a Real technique Deluxe Crease Brush for applying my Conceal underneath my eyes. You will have to work fast with this product as it dries up soon. For those exceptionally hot days you might want to set it with a powder.
VERDICT :Good for oily to dry skin .
