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.
