MAC PRO LONGWEAR VS MAC SELECT COVER UP TUBE

MAC PRO LONGWEAR VS MAC SELECT COVER UP TUBE

Firstly, let’s brush up on some basic facts regarding concealers.concealers are used in order to cover dark circles under the eye area, blemishes , tattoos , birth marks ,imperfections and other discoloration . I would prefer having one concealer that does everything , rather then carrying around different concealers for the under eye area and another for the face.At times it’s such a mission finding the right product, you don’t want to end up spending too much . Mac products are a bit expensive , but I feel they are value for money , they tend to last longer and the ingredients used are good as well . Let us review two MAC concealers .

MAC SELECT COVER-UP CONCEALER

PACKAGING  :it comes in a glass bottle with a pump. Have to be careful not to drop it as it will break.Travel friendly as it is a small bottle .The pump on this product can not be controlled , even if you try to squirt half a pump , a lot of wastage occurred ( I usually keep a small container and put excess in their for the next time ) PACKAGING:it comes in a nice plastic Tube making it travel friendly.With the tube it’s easy to squeeze out the exact amount of product you want to use .
FOUNDATION. 

  • 16 different shades to choose from
  • medium to full coverage concealer
  • Natural , matte finish
  • creamy texture , blends perfectly
  •  Long wearing concealer , last up to  15 hours
  • Doesn’t settle in fine lines under the eye area
  • Flawless finish on skin area to hide scars , blemishes or any other imperfections
  • Can apply as a substitute for foundation and set with powder
  • the concealer shades are darker then the foundation.You have to try the concealer at store before purchasing .
  FOUNDATION

  • 13 different shades to choose from
  • Medium to full coverage
  • Satin , smooth finish
  • creamy texture
  • Not that long wearing , you have to touch up if you using to conceal whole face
  • tends to settle in lines under the eye , which I hate
  • Good coverage on the face ,for a natural finish you can just apply powder on top , instead of having to apply foundation
  • this creamy concealer when used on face does seem to get a bit oily
  • shade seems to be of the same colour as foundation shades

PRICE : Zar 220.00
for 9ml 

PRICE : Zar 220.00
for 10ml 

 

My view : I have purchased both these concealers at about the same time and I have used the pro LONGWEAR concealer much more then the select cover -up.The select cover-up is nearly close to full and I will not re -purchase this product.As for the pro LONGWEAR I am in love with this product , it does exactly what the packaging says , I do highly recommend the Pro LONGWEAR concealer rather then the select .

Below  I have made swatches on my hand so you can see the difference.On the left side is the select cover-up concealer in the shade nc42 , as you can see it has a thin and runny  consistency.On the right side I have the pro longwear concealer also in the shade nc42 .You can see it is more thick and matte looking , you can also notice the color difference although they are both the same shades .

      Divya , both works with the covering up on the face area , however the prolongwear is more full coverage Nd will last all day long , without doing any touch up .
      I do prepare the MAC studio finish pot for concealing dark spots on my face , works like a bom 🙂
