MAC Pro Longwear Concealer vs MAC Select Moisturecover NC30

I've tried many concealers before but didn't really have a particular favourite one until I found these MAC concealers - Pro Longwear and Select Moisturecover.

I've been using MAC Select Moisturecover for the past 2 years. I use it to cover redness on my face using MAC #217 and it works like a charm! The texture is smooth, creamy and it gives a moisturised finish. It doesn't leave the cakey looks on my face like most concealers I've tried. I sometimes use it under my eyes but I think my Bobbi Brown concealer and corrector work better for under eyes. The only thing I dislike about this product is the packaging. I think of gems when I see the wand.

I picked up MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in the beginning of January this year. My SA recommended this one when I told her I need something with a good coverage for my acne dark spots. I was told not to use under my eyes because it may be too thick and cakey for that area. The concealer is creamy, thicker than Select Moisturecover and it stays put all day. I love and hate the pump! Love it because it's more hygienic than the wand. Hate it because one pump gives me more than what I need! I feel it's such a waste when one pump gives me more than I need. However, if I press the pump slowly and carefully, I'll get a tiny bit of product which is enough for one use.

Both concealers are NC30 but Pro Longwear is lighter than Select Moisturecover - even when they're in the tubes.

Pro Longwear is 9ml while Select Moisturecover is 5ml.

What's your favourite concealer? Have you tried both of these products before?


  1. Glad to hear these work so well for you. I tried both before but they broke me out terribly. Thanks for the lovely photos and swatches.

  2. I've heard that MAC concealers break a lot of people out. I was quite worried it would happen to me too but am glad they both work well for me!

  3. ive heard very good thing about MAC concealer, but if i have to choose id go with the pro long, since the pump is alot more hygienic than the wand i think~~~

  4. Never tried it, but now I will :) I use YVES SAINT LAURENT TOUCHE ECLAT, been doing so fro years. XO

  5. I love the prolonger wear concealer but I have noticed that it does break me out.
