MAC Pro Longwear Concealer In NC15




MAC - Pro Longwear Concealer - NC15

I decided to purchase MAC Pro Longwear concealer after watching so many beauty YouTubers featuring it in within their videos online and after reading so many raving reviews about it. I was bound to cave wasn't I? I've been using/testing this product on and off for about a month or so now. I purchased it from Selfridges when I was in London shopping with my sister - that place is amazing! I was in my element.

MAC Pro Longwear concealer is rumoured to be one of 'the best' concealers! I wouldn't go that far! The concealer comes in a glass bottle that has a pump dispenser, which pumps out far too much product. This is super annoying when you only need a tiny bit to work with, there's just no control over the amount of product you'd like to use. I waste so much of this product every time I use it. Make up waste never goes down well with a girl like me *cries inside*.

MAC Pro Longwear concealer is a liquid formula that has quite a thin/runny consistency, which makes it quite easy to apply. This product is medium to full coverage with a matte finish. The coverage to me is more on the full coverage side as I find it quite heavy and a little cakey at times, but that's probably when I've applied too much. My skin is quite dry/dehydrated and I find it really hard to make this concealer work under my eyes. Some days I really like this product and then other days I don't really rate it at all. It depends on how my skin is on the day I suppose. I think it may be that I need something that's a little creamier and hydrating on my skin.

You need to be applying this concealer sparingly and quick, as it dries/stains really quickly and there's no budging it after its set. That's one of the positives about the concealer. It does last a really, really long time on your skin and I think that's why so many people rate it. I've had this concealer on since 7am and it's now 4pm and I haven't had to touch it up at all. Could it be waterproof? Another thing that I was impressed by was that there was no creasing... now that's a first! 

Overall, I have a hate/love relationship with this product. I just wish that the concealer was a little creamier and not as dry on the skin once it has set, but then it probably wouldn't last as long as it does. You can't win can you haha! I'm still on the look out for my holy grail concealer. Please give me some kind of guidance beauty bloggers... 

Have you tried this concealer before?
What is your holy grail concealer?

  1. I got this concealer quite a while back and really didn't like it! I literally agree word for word with what you've said. They matched me up as NC20 which is way too dark so it was pretty much useless to begin with. The pump is a complete design flaw, the concealer dries way to quickly on the skin and clings horrendously to any dry patches I have. Really not worth the money at all. So far I'm yet to find a concealer that compares to the Collection Lasting Perfection one! x

  2. Fab review hun, products like this are so frustrating, though you have intrigued me to try it as I haven't yet found a concealer that doesn't crease under the eyes xx

  3. I really want to try this just for the fact that it doesn't crease and is long wearing but it doesn't sound good that it's dying :\ xxx
