One of the best concealers ever! I have an acne prone skin and due to that, I went through a breakout phase and left me with scars. So I went to MAC and picked this up and boy was it worth it! This is really thick! You don't need a lot to cover your imperfections and it works well with my oily skin as well just powder throughout the day and probably blot here and there but this product stays on throughout the whole day! Very good product! It's almost like the Estee Lauder Double wear maximum cover but this is more considered as an everyday product!
Oh and it may oxidize when it's really hot/humid, I live in LA so when it's hot, I usually set this with powder and sometimes when I've been out for an hour, i'll see it turn a little bit orange! (I'm an NC35-NC40) so be aware of that when buying!
I love this concealer! Has been my HG for a while now. I have oily sking but it works fine on me. Love it. I would recommend to any one.
Love love! I have purple under eye circles and this concealer covers them and stays put all day. Not a fan of pump though so I have a little jar I put the concealer in so I can get perfect amount of product
I am nw15
My favourite under eye concealer! it doesnt crease and covers so well!
I lightly powder it with rimmel stay matte pressed powder and it lasts all day!
Packaging is meh, the pump, pumps out too much so i always put some in a sample pot first.
are you like me and need to conceal dark undereyes and acne scars? well id recommend mac pro longwear concealer!
first off, i love the packaging. its in a tiny bottle with a pump. one whole pump can cover my undereye circles and acne scars!
the consistency is pretty thick but not over the top heavy. you only need one sheer layer under the eyes for it to be brightened and concealed. i do not use any sort of primer before, and it does not crease AT ALL! which is the biggest con with the previous concealers ive tried in the past. i set with maybelline dream powder and it doesnt budge all day.
for my acne scars, about 2-3 layers will FULLY conceal, which isnt so bad. again it lasts ALL day and doesnt budge.
i honestly cant FIND flaws with this concealer, i love how its perfect for BOTH undereyes and the face.
i have this in nc30, which is neutral but more on the yellow side. this costs $19.00 which may sound expensive especially looking at the tiny tube, but honestly all you need is ONE pump or less. i can definitley seeing this last a long time, and a little goes along away. HG!!
I have been looking for a concealer to disguise my under eye circles and dark spots that have appeared from acne.
I'm a NC42 with dry skin and this works wonders on some of my flaws. Especially for my dark circles, it doesn't completely make them disappear but it does make my eyes a lot more awake and natural. I do have problems with it setting into fine lines, especially when I put the concealer on my lids to neutralize the dark colour. But once I place translucent powder on it, I have no issues with the creasing.
Dispensing the product can be frustrating, knowing that you've paid quite a bit and ending up wasting it every use. I got used to the pump, knowing how much pressure to apply for it to distribute a little amount and then do it again if I need more. It's just the matter of getting the hang of it.
Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with it and it's a trial & error product. Working around the problems and finding out what will work, I am impressed!
This product literally conceals any blemish on your skin! I have hideous dark circles due to lack of sleep and this product hides them perfectly and I look like I've flawless skin after using it! It does exactly it's job. However, I find that the concealer is too heavy for my liking. It's thick, heavy and gooey. But I guess that's what gives the flawless coverage. The packaging itself is mediocre. The bottle is made of glass so it is fragile and not meant for travel. The pump is what I hate the most because it is insanely difficult to pump the correct amount of concealer I want. It jams when I press it and thus I've to press even harder which releases too much product. I've checked that it is not because of any residue and the pump was always like that since the beginning. However, I can forgo that disadvantage as the product itself is excellent in what it does. Will buy again.
This is my HG Product. I use it as a foundation more it covers effortless and amazing. I love love love this concealer. The reason I use this concealer as a foundation is because of the high coverage. I only use this at night or when going out not daytime. Its highly pigmented and covers blemishes like a charm. It covers blemishes to a skintone color no purple or pink or red skin showing thru the concealer conceals perfectly. I am Asian skin tone and MAC NC 35 is a good match.
-Conceals conceals conceals
-A Little bit goes a long way
-Small and compact
-Pump version means sanitary
-No SPF ( I like no SPF because anything with SPF upon taking a flash photo your face will have a white cast in the photo)
-Easy to spread and cover
-Perfect for blemishes
-Stays on for 12 hours+ (PRO LONG WEAR)
-Complete the look with a pressed or mineral powder.
-The packaging although it comes in a pump. It always pumps way too much and when
finished with the product there's always a lot left in the bottle but cant open or pump that last bits out.
-Dries quickly have to work fast on it
My application on using this is with a Beauty Blender Sponge or knockoffs. These sponges provide fast and even full airbrush coverage love it!. I have also used my el cheapo ELF Foundation Brush and works like a charm make sure to sweep across then pat your fingers in to pat away the streak marks brushes tend to leave. I would highly recommend this concealer and its great on acne-prone skin. Let me say that I although I do not like liquids and prefer minerals. This concealer blows everything outta the pool its high coverage and that's what I want and also its sweat and waterproof and the concealer stays on the skin for long. Easy to wipe off with a makeup remover or cleanser. Love this !
UPDATE: 2-9-13: Realized the Mac artist matched me to NC 35 been using it for a good year. I happen to get comments saying i look bronzey and have a nice glow to my skin I went back to the MAC store and tried NC 30 and gosh this was perfect match and makes my skin nice without that bronzey effect. Although i did like NC 35 i will be moving on with NC30. Have different MAC associates help you with a color match really they matched me to the wrong color and most of them i encountered said NC30 would be way too light for me they were wrong and im thanking everyone who commented on my oompa loompa look,
As a MAC devotee, I really wanted to love this, but it just doesn't work for me. I only really need concealer for my dark circles (which are pretty bad), and while the Pro Longwear does a decent job at covering them up, it creases and cracks like mad, sets in lines and can even give the appearance of wrinkles. Not fun when you're 22! That being said, I do have dry skin and the concealer does seem to make wonders for some, just not for me.
Many complain about the packaging but I wasn't much bothered by it, it takes a few times to learn how to get the right amount but you get the hang of it, and it's not as messy as say a doe foot applicator.
I love this product for my under eye circles! looks fabulous once its been set with powder :)
* light on skin
* lasts all day
* matches skin tone perfectly
* little goes a Looong way
* the packaging ALWAYS emits to much product.. like why evil pump bottle why!?
* it is pretty expensive for such a little bottle further backing up the annoying bottle squirting out too much product that doesnt get used. =[
