Best among the Rest : Concealers available in India

If you open my older post you will realize how carefree I was, never use to wear foundation, concealer and use to post FOTD’s with just tinted moisturizer. While it was and still appreciated by closed pals, it was Dr.Neeraj who made me realize the importance of base makeup , It really does, even if you have flawless face a little layer of concealer can make your face more polished. Although, I am still carefree when am not posing for FOTD and this is witnessed with blogger friends who have met me in person. I am actually not conscious on how my face is looking, seriously!


That is the reason I hardly switch my base makeup, I do have a wish list which includes concealers from NARS and YSL , but I am very happy with the above four – MAC Select Cover up NC 42 , MUFE 5 Camouflage Cream palette no 3 , Derma Colour Camouflage Crème in D 5 and MUFE HD Concealer # 340.


On daily basis and in my looks I use MAC Select Cover up NC 42 ( I am NC 40 in MAC )  and I am on my second tube, earlier I was using NW 35 but this year I was matched with NC 42.

You can read my review for MAC SELECT COVER UP Concealer in NW 35 HERE

It is light weight and super creamy and covers my dark circles without much effort , blends well and work efficiently throughout the day on my oily skin , I do set it with powder at times , even if not , it still makes me look decent at the end of day . For little heavy coverage around my chin I use Derma Colour, it is BOMB of concealers and I will review it soon and if possible will include some other shades as well.

So , I shared mine , the best among the rest – MAC Select Cover up , it was and still my secret weapon for even skin tone .

Do share your favorite concealer and please include your foundation shade also .

    Hi Rashmi – I am not too much of a concealer/foundation person as well. Between a 3-year old son, husband, full time job, a blog, home, I hardly get any time to squeeze in even a whisker – so it’s just an eyeliner and lipstick most of the time. But yes, over the weekends or during special occasions, I do take time to prime + apply foundation and concealer. I am using the L’oreal 16H foundation currently and the Colorbar stick concealer.

    Hi Rashmi,
    I appreciate your reviews and sharing your thoughts on these products. I’ve been using MAC Select cover up in NW30 and foundation in NC30 since 3+years and I’m pretty happy with the combination. Now I would like to try other brands such as NARS or MUFE HD. My skin turns oily after some time due this hot/humid condition where I live 🙁 . What primer do you recommend?

    • rashmi says:

      thank you so much dear for kind words and appreciating the effort 😀 😀 and of course sharing your shade
      primer – MUFE one is really great or if you can get your hands on hourglass …
      i havent tried hourglass but they have some great reviews

    I dont know if I have found my HG concealer yet…I tried a number of options for my dark circles…each made them look ashy…I guess everyone was working on the concept of 2 shades lighter and not really colour correcting. Finally I settled for MAC Studio finish NW35. Recently I bought NC 42 Prolongwear concealer coz with experimention i realized that NW35 being ornage tinted cancels the dark circle and NC42 kind of sets it. SO together they work fairly well, but alone, they are ok..ok. But still searching for a HG concealer.

    My foundation shade is MAC Studio fix NC35; Pro long wear NC30; Bobbi Brown 4; Estee Lauder 2W2 Rattan.

    I am currently using mac select cover up in nc42. I think it is ok for concealing dark circles. But I find it quite drying and it sets fast so I have to work really fast to blend it out. My next concealer purchase will be nars radiant creamy concealer

    Ahhh finally someone who was nw35…im lik3 you Rashmi i match evenly to both nw35 n nc42!!!i just cudnt understand why till i read about neutral undertones:-),anyway i use nars creamy concealer in the shade biscuit(since under eye concealer is supposed to b a bit lighter than skintone) or if u like same shade as skin go for caramel—i was matched at a counter.hope this helps.

    • rashmi says:

      Thank you so much San for sharing 😀 i wish I would have read your comment earlier … justttt placed my order at SEPHORA , else I would have added these two ..
      you can still see them in my “LOVES” ahhaha was so confused you know
      but am noting down these for next time 😀 glad you shared

    • rashmi says:

      for dry skin a light weight concealer like select cover up would be great dear
      you should try both and then see how they stay throughout day 😀
      Derma Color is greattt but it is little too heavy for under eyes …

    Rash!!! Honey! Congrats, saw this post being blessed by Christine of Temptalia!!! Yayyyyyyy!!!! May be let your readers know…Im happy for you dear!

    haha you MUST try NARS Radiant Creamy concealer. Actually, I also love the MAC/Mickey Contractor concealer you sent me. It is really, really good. As for select cover up, long time ago I was matched with NW35 and I found it to be the wrong colour match (too ruddy) for my under eyes. I wish I had gone with NC 42, too. Also, Clarin’s new concealer is rather nice.
