MAC Pro Longwear Foundation & Concealer Review

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation and Concealer Review and Swatches

MAC bases are some of my favourites as I find they work well with my skin. I have previously owned the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer but I dropped it and smashed it! Luckily it was nearly empty otherwise I would have cried! I have been testing out the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation for the past few weeks and finally thought I would review the duo for you.

The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15 is my holy grail product. It is the fullest coverage concealer I have tried without it feeling heavy. I always go a few shades lighter as I love to use this to highlight with aswel as conceal. It is quite a runny liquid and one pump is more than enough. I find it conceals my dark under eye circles, it doesn't crease and it lasts all day. I find this applies well using your fingers, stipple brush or a beauty sponge. Alot of people compare this to the LA Girl Pro Concealer but for me it isn't even close, you can read my comparison post HERE

The MAC Pro Longwear Foundation has been on my wishlist for some time. I also own the MAC Studio Fix Foundation which is full coverage and but can be quite thick so it isn't ideal for Summer. One thing I loved right off the bat about the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation is that it comes with a pump! I have oily skin, freckles on my cheeks, slight blemishes on my chin and I get the odd breakout. I applied this foundation using my Makeup Addiction The Buffer Brush which gave me more coverage compared to using a makeup sponge. The coverage is medium, you can slightly see my freckles on my cheeks, it covered my blemishes and looked lovely. I found when I had a breakout it clung to it rather than covering it. Another thing that impressed me is how long this lasted on a hot day and didn't go patchy. It contains SPF 10. I do think this foundation I would mainly use in the summer as I do prefer a fuller coverage in Winter.

Using the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer and MAC Pro Longwear Foundation together create the perfect amount of coverage and a flawless finish. I much prefer using a flat top kabuki brush or a buffer brush as if you use a beauty blender it really sheers out the foundation. Overall I absolutely love both of these products and will 100% keep repurchasing them.

  2. I think this foundation is going to be my go-to over winter. I've been using face & body and really want to give this a go! Shame you're not 100% loving the concealer at the moment, I have been using Rimmel's 'Wake me Up' for under my eyes and it works amazingly!

  5. I just need to give in and pick up both of these products, I lean towards BB creams but for those times you need a little more coverage I think this would be perfect. Gorgeous nails by the way!

    1. If you don't want heavy coverage then this is for you. I would say it doesn't feel much heavier than a BB Cream so you will love it :) Thank you they are only stick on ones from boots! x

  11. I definitely want to try both, the concealer and foundation. I'm not sure if the concealer will be good to use under my eyes though as I have some fine lines and any heavy concealers tend to settle in them. x

  16. I use Studio Fix which can be a bit too thick over the summer so the Pro Longwear sounds a good alternative for a something a bit fore sheer!

  20. I love this duo from MAC, for me the foundation is perfect coverage and since I have dry skin I like to blend it into my skin using a damp beauty blender or else I tend to get dry patches. I love how long lasting both of these are x

  23. Heard so many good things about this concealer! Haven't tried it yet I keep forgetting! I used to love the foundation though but after a year or so of using it my skin stopped agreeing to it. Might try it again, after a break it may be better! xx

  24. I've been umming and erming over these two for ages, so loved reading your review. I think the Studio Fix would be better for me foundation wise, since I LOVE full coverage. Will definitely be purchasing the concealer though xx
