I was so excited about this product but like all MAC foundations, this one broke me out as well. It looked nice on but it was a tad drying. I even slathered on moisturizer beforehand too. This foundation gave me cystic acne around my chin. It was so bad that after a week of getting rid of one, another would pop up. I stopped using this foundation and used Revlon Colorstay and my cystic acne disappeared. I haven't had a breakout since. It's too bad it didn't work out! It really is long-wearing too.

I wear this in NW20 and like it because it is long lasting, but it's not my HG foundation for daily wear like my beloved Stila. This is great to put on when I don't have time to touch up at all during the day and need to be able to look polished without having to worry about my foundation fading. Even though I always wear sunscreen, I like that this foundation does have some sunscreen in it. If you are looking for a long-lasting foundation, try this or a longwear foundation from Makeup Forever.

I usually wear studio fix fluid but wanted to change things up a bit so I bought this. PROS - it stays on for a long time as promised, does not rub off on clothes (that was a huge issue with studio fix), I actually found a shade to match my skin - NC42, Comes with a pump unlike the studio fix which is nice, doesn't make me break out!CONS - As others have mentioned, it dries sooo quickly, making it difficult to apply all over my face. Maybe I just need more practice but sometimes I feel like it leaves me looking blotchy because it doesn't get applied evenly. I also find it difficult to apply it with a foundation brush.. just easier to use your fingers. My skin gets very dry in the winter and I find that it makes me dry patches look terrible.. never had the issue with studio fix. If I get the hang of applying it quickly, I'll probably get another bottle once I run out!

PROS:- Lasts ALL DAY- Looks natural- hygenic pumpCONS:- THICK consistency, feels heavy- emphasizes dry patchesOverall, it gets 5 lippies because it really does stay on all day, without having to run to the washroom to powder up.

Overall this is a great foundation. Nc4o for reference. It stays put, I do not get oily and covers pretty good.

This foundation was a huge disappointment to my dry skin. It felt like it was sucking all the moisture out of my face. The texture is so weird and difficult to blend. If you want this to look nice on you should use your fingers because a brush will make it look streaky since it dries out so quick. I can't see how this stuff would be good for everyday wear also. If it claims to stay onto your face for 15 hrs, there's gotta be some really bad adhering ingredients in there and i'm sure it is prone to cause many breakouts. If you're looking for good coverage, you won't find it in this foundation either.

I'm an NC25 in MAC and have oily with dry patched skin. I've always had black/white heads and mild acne here and there with no luck with getting rid of the heads due to my huge pores. It was between the ProLongwear and MUFE HD for me but ProLongwear won due to the extra long wear on my skin. MUFE was a better colourmatch though since it was more yellow based. This NC25 runs more orange than SFF! PLW is between matte and dewy so it's great for my combo skin. The longwear formula also prevents my face from becoming a greaseball in an hour. Not kidding. SFF literally ran off my face in an hour, leaving it gleaming with grease. MAC Mineralize liquid also did the same thing. It has happened with every other cheap/expensive foundation I've tried--SFF was just the worst. With PLW my skin can now remain normal looking FOR HOURS, with a blot half way through the day. I have not broken out any more than usual without makeup. When it's winter I have to mix in foundation with moisturizer due to the dry patches on my face. I don't need to do any of that when it's warmer and my skin isn't drying up like crazy.Coverage is definitely not full but that is enough for me since I like looking a bit more natural. It does cover my blackheads and works really well with the oily/dry skin so no complaints here! I've finally found something close to HG for my skin since nothing liked staying on my skin without running off in oil, or being so matte it makes the dry patches worse (even when mixed with moisturizer). It would have been perfect if it was more yellow instead of orange based.It takes a bit of work to get this foundation off. Even with me touching my face all day long, it's still there and needs to be washed off!

I recently just purchased the MAC Pro-Longwear SPF 10 Foundation to see if it really did what everyone said (last ALL DAY) and wow were they right! I have the color in NW30 and I must say, it is alot more watery then my other MAC foundations but it really is great so far. This foundation, along with all my other MAC foundations have not made me break out which I love. I applied it around 9 o clock in the morning and it is now 8 in the evening and all of it is STILL ON! Ive been touching my face all day, taken a nap and it still remained on my face! I LOVE it! I cannot believe how well it stays put! I will def be purchasing this in the future when I run out! :D

Pros:-this is a nice foundation-does last well-does not need to be set with powder because it dries fast and to a matte / semi-matte finish, although I do set mine with Mac Mineralize Skinfinish powder (light medium)-haven't noticed it to oxidise on me. Cons:-Tough to remove, kinda of like Estee Lauder's Double WearShade:-I use NC25 and it does seem slight darker but still fine, especially with summer on the doorstep-Other foundation shades I use are Sand and Tawny in double wear although the nc 25 would be somewhere in between-Bourjois healthy mix in 52-Sassy minerals in olive medium, or golden medium for the summer-There are so many others I use, but I just cannot remember them all of the top of my head! :)

UPDATE: For some reason this foundation is a bit to sticky for me, I don't understand why :( I just hate the application of this foundation. I do moisterize before and everything.. But for some reason it ends up looking cakey and doesn't wanna move around when I want to blend..Over all I LOVE this foundation. I feel like I finally found a foundation that lasts and matches me real well ! It truly lasts all day, I put it on around 9 AM, it lasts me till about 10 PM, however I do touch up in between. I have oily skin isn't so bad compared to others. About 3-4 hours outside, you might need to touch up THAT'S IF you really want to stay MATTE all day. Coverage is medium, but with their studio fix concealer, full is achievable since thats how I do it. I do have acne, a lot !I mix NC 42 + NC 45, their color for this line is a bit lighter than their others but truly I love this foundation. But if Estee lauder double wear had a color that matched my skintone, I'D PURCHASE in a heart beat LOL.
