The MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer is probably one of the brand’s most famous products.
I got it some months ago, because I was looking for a very high coverage concealer that I could use sheered out on a wet sponge or full on with a camouflage effect on areas “in need”, leaving the rest of the face fresher and with a lightweight base.
It’s described as a “fluid concealer that provides medium to full matte coverage for up to 15 hours” with a “liquid camouflage-like formula that brightens dark areas, erases spots and evens skin tone”.
I’m in between NC15 and NC20 and I usually mix them. When I’m at my “palest” or when I want a very bright and fresh undereye area I go for NC15, when I’m tan I go for my NC20.
NC 15 Tends to be a tiny bit more neutral, almost cooler, but it looks very good on me.
- NC 20 It’s definitely warmer and love it too.
What I love about this product is that it’s very versatile, longlasting/waterproof, full coverage and a little bit goes a long way. It’s part of the Back to Mac program too!
If you apply it light handed, it can even provide a medium natural coverage.
It’s even recommended as an eyeshadow base too and sometimes, instead of using a foundation, I mix it with a moisturizer and I apply it all over the face with a wet Miracle Complexion Sponge to even out my skin and looks very natural.
Since it’s longwearing, it may tend to dry the skin, especially on the dry skins (use a good moisturizing cream or some kind of oil and a primer), but on me works fine and doesn’t crease (i immediately set it with powder) or smudge. I think that, if well applied, it can perform as a camouflage concealer and still result natural on the skin.
I’m really not into the glass bottle, because it’s very fragile and a bit “dangerous” to put it in the bag and the pump releases way too much product for what I and most people need.
