Since Estee Lauder is "mostly" my HG brand, I tried EStee Lauder's Smoothing Creme Concealer. It's ok for my opinion. I don't need to put a lot because it's very pigmented and easy to blend. But unfortunately, it's not that good in coverage and also, it's not as long lasting as MAC's. For the MAC Select Cover-Up, it can last the whole day long without retouching my concealer. But for the Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer, whenever I get home, I can see the spots that I'm trying to conceal on my face. :(
Now, let's talk about the appearances and the prices.
Well, for the appearance, I would give Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer 5 stars, whereas the MAC Select-Cover Up in 4 stars. Why?! The tube of the Estee Lauder's is more sanitized. I use it everyday lately because I'm out of MAC's and it's not all over the mouth of the tube, whereas for the MAC's, I need to clean it from time to time because of the messy packaging.
Also, the tube of the Estee Lauder is very elegant looking and not to mention it contains more than the MAC Select Cover Up.
MAC Select Cover-Up - 10 ml - HKD 145
Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer - 15 ml - HKD 160
If you've noticed the prices, I think MAC Select Cover-Up is even cheaper than Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer.
I think I would go back to my Select Cover-Up in NC30 after finishing this concealer! Estee Lauder didn't get my heart this time around!
