I'm usually an NC20-25 and Im on my second bottle! I gave the first one to my sister to try because I thought there was a tad bit left.. Turns out there was like 1/4 leftover and a little goes a long way with this concealer! I love how it gives off so much coverage even tho I don't really need that much! Better than the foundation and the only thing I hate about is was the pump.. I know it should be a pro but it came out all in one size! No matter how light or heavy you try.. Comes out more than you need.
this concealer is awesome. It's really longwear and never filling in my lines. My foundation shade is NC25, and I use NW20 (for winter) and match perfectly. The only problem is packaging (it wastes so much product) I highly recommend!
great concealer! I was really hesitant to try this concealer out at first as I've never had good luck with any other concealers but I'm so glad I bought this! great coverage, great staying power especially for the under eye area. I have the worst dark circles in the world and lines that can be seen probably from a few blocks away and this concealer conceals it perfectly! I can finally say, I'm in love! was previously using Mac select moisturecover concealer but this is so much better!
Excellent longevity, great colour range, is smooth and blendable and is a product I would highly recommend, especially under the eyes as it works so well to cover my dark circles. Unfortunately the pump dispenses way too much product and that knocks the rating down for me as it wastes so much product. Overall though, a really good concealer.
I do want to start off by saying I don't believe the woman from MAC matched my skin tone properly with this concealer. I feel it's a little too dark but the quality of this product is awesome. It actually does cover up imperfections and I'm sure if it was a little lighter it would be great for my dark circles. It lasts all day. Doesn't smudge and once it's dry you don't have to worry about it getting on your clothes or anything!
O M G can you say HOLY GRAIL i absolutely LOVE this concealer I've tried so many others from drug store to high end & I've gotta say this is my favorite. it covers up my dark circles perfectly & it doesn't crease which is a huge deal breaker for me. I'm NC25 but the girl at the counter matched me with NW20 i was surprised to see how great the color cancelled out my blue/purple circles with a flawless finish & i didn't have to cake it on! you know I'll be purchasing this bad boy again (: xoxo continued >>
I am on my second bottle of this product. Let me tell u, it is the best concealer ever. I have tried tons and I always stick to the pro long wear.
I have nc 25 skintone and I was matched with nw 20. Nw 20 is perfect color match for under my eyes. I also use the pro longwear on blemishes. When i do i use the concealer in nw 25.
The lasting power is great. Even when you're sweating ( I use this when I go to the gym as well). It's a bit hard to blend, but I don't mind.
I would definetely recommend this concealer. HG!!
I am fair with yellow undertones, I usually fall in between NC15-20. I am usually dry with acne prone skin. Most MAC foundations wreak havoc on my skin but I found Face + Body foundation (C1- C2) with the Pro Longwear Concealer is perfect for me.
The sales associate picked out NW20 for me. At first I was concerned because I usually prefer my concealers lighter and I have never been matched in the NW range. She explained that the NW(warmer) shades can have a brightening effect under the eye and this turned out to be true for me!
I think this concealer is medium-full coverage, it is very buildable.It offers the coverage of Studio Sculpt Concealer but is so much more lightweight. I use this to combat the redness in the center of my face, dark circles, and the occasional spot on my face.
The lasting power is amazing! Doesn't need to be set with powder, lasts all day. My makeup is usually on 8-10 hours a day and this concealer doesn't budge.
The pump is frustrating. It dispense too much product. When I purchased this concealer I knew about the pump troubles so I asked for a sample cup. I pump my concealer into the cup and that way I'm able to save what I don't use.
I am so surprised by how much I like this concealer. I use this everyday and haven't really felt the need to pick up any of my undereye correctors. It looks natural and really smoothes out my skin. Even though my skin is on the dry side (I exfoliate, moisturize and prime my skin regularly) there haven't been any problems with flaking.
Love this concealer but it has taken some getting used to!!
I have just recently smashed my bottle of it so will have to repurchase- had about half left so very upset! Beware of the glass packaging and the pump makes life difficult to get out the right amount of product.
I used to love Laura Mercier secret concealer but found in the hotter weather it does not stay put, so I was looking for something with more staying power!
I have had to really work with this concealer to see best results. I'm about an NC30 so have got this is NC20 for under the eye area. I don't have many fine lines or dark circles here but I am obsessed with achieving the contoured look.
I've found that dispensing the pump into a little tub makes application a lot easier. I also found that using a primer really helped as it dries onto the skin quite quickly, i use YSL secret primer and it gives a great glow/silky finish. I then use a damp beauty blender as the consistency of the concealer is thick (tried various brushes but went cakey). The coverage is medium to full, looks airbrushed and luminous, I do not find the need to set with a powder. It lasts all day, even after a power nap the under eye area still looks fresh and bright. It does not cause my eye makeup to run, I have tried the Mac select moisturecover and was not impressed.
Just wish this came in a different type of bottle :-)
This is the concealer I use to cover up blemishes or skin color issues. When I went in I was first matched to nw25, I was trying out Prolongwear foundation in nw20 at the time but like usual the MAC artists don't listen to me when I tell them I am paler than I look, I always get matched too dark at MAC. Anyways I bought it and went outside and sure enough it looked like an oompa loompa was trying to conceal my spots. I went back in and exchanged it for nw15 which is a smidge light but blends out okay. I have heard a lot about the pump being a pain so I asked for a plastic pot they give samples in to decant it which works perfectly. I have a lot left and I have been using it for about a year. The coverage is good, I have never used it for under my eyes since the consistency tends to be on the dry side. I apply this to my spots and dab it lightly with my beauty blender until it blends in. Last a long time and covers my spots pretty well. Good all around concealer. I might look into different ones when I run out just for fun though.
