We all want to know, does it really live up to all the hype? Well yes it does! I have this in the shade NC30 and I am NC30-37. I find it goes on a bit light but it oxidises a shade darker after a few minutes so keep that in mind when getting colour matched. The shade is very yellow toned which I like as I use this for concealing blemishes and post-acne marks, on my under eye area it can turn a bit ashy so I would recommend a NW shade for that purpose.
It gives medium-buildable coverage I would say and the best thing is that it lasts for majority of the day even through heat and humidity which is amazing for something so light weight. At first when you apply it the texture is a bit hard to blend but with the warmth of my fingers it blends in nicely without losing any coverage.
MAC are known to have very strong scented foundations/concealers and Pro Longwear is no different. The smell is reminiscent of Revlon Colorstay IMO but once applied the smell disappears so no deal breaker there. I have oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin and I have not broken out from this. The one let down of this concealer is definitely the packaging. The pump needs to be improved as its very hard to control, but I overlook that as when I pump out the smallest amount possible, I can cover all my blemishes and scarring on my cheeks, use a bit on my under eyes and on my lids as a primer (which it works great for!). I have dry patches at times on healing blemishes and I don't find the concealer emphasises them.
Overall, I would highly recommend this concealer to all skin types who want long lasting coverage. I have given it 4 stars due to the pump issue, otherwise it is definitely a 5 star product.
This concealer is amazing! It does a great job of covering up my dark circles and lasts all day. I have nothing negative to say about this product. Would definitely repurchase.
AMAZING!! This is my first MAC product & I love it! Excellent coverage compared to my other concealers and leaves a natural finish. Too bad that its really drying under the eyes and the pump dispenses just way too much product, I always have to wash off the excess. :( Anyway I wore it out under the extreme hot weather today( 33 degrees) and it stayed put even after 3hours of exercising!!
I wanted something a bit more liquid than the excellent Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil and since the reviews for this product were good, well, I gave it a try. Oh, what a mistake. Basically it doesn't not cover enough and the finish is not natural. The worst is the packaging. It is a small bottle with a pump and it is very difficult to get just a bit of the product. It makes a mess each time. I'll stick with Urban Decay.
I just bought this a month ago so far it's the best concealer that I have bought and I own about 20 different brands I use it for my under eye circles they aren't bad just dark but it's nothing serious but I have to try and be perfect looking! But any way so far best concealer I've bought
Amazing, brightens up the under eyes, conceals everything. The only problem I have is sometimes too much comes out of the bottle, overall great concealer!
I love this!! I use it under my eyes and the left over product I use as an eye lid primer because it is a long wearing concealer it will keep your eye makeup fresh! Only complaint is that the pump is annoying because it dispenses too much product
I love this concealer, it really looks like you're covering up with another layer of skin. HOWEVER, it makes me breakout along my jaw line. But if I'm going out or have a special occasion, I'll still use it cause it looks so natural. I'm sad my skin reacts to it because it is such a nice product.
I love this stuff, I think it is a very good concealers. It hides all my blemishes easily, stays put throughout the day (without exception!), I do have to work with it to cover my dark circles, but then again they are really dark. It is the best concealer I've ever used, and also my first high end one, and first mac product. I'm really really happy with the job that this concealer does, will definitely buy again!
I have little wrinkles under my eyes. So I've tried many concealers that always crease into my fine lines. This concealer was the ONLY concealer that never...ever creased! It doesn't give the best coverage but that's what you have corrector a for and just apply this over it and set it with a powder! Aaaamazing!!
