MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

22 comments
Hey Lovelies,
So recently I went to MAC and picked up their Pro Longwear Concealer.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
 MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is a long wearing medium to full coverage liquid concealer.
I bought it in the shade NC 42, which is darker than my foundation shade (NC 30). My thinking behind this was that I need a darker product to mix in with my current foundation so I can use it in the summer when I have more of a tan.
 MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is quite a multi purpose product. 
It can be used as an undereye concealer and I've got a small tip for you: If you are looking for an undereye concealer at MAC, try to chose an NW shade rather than an NC shade. The reason for this is that NW shades are more pink toned, and pink toned shades work better at disguising darkness under your eyes rather than yellow toned ones. 
Also, try not to go for a concealer that's miles lighter than your foundation. I know we all want to lighten our undereye area, Kim Kardashian style, but if you are trying to cover up your dark circles with a product that's far too light for you, you can actually end up highlighting that area rather than colour correcting it. (Many thanks to Andrew James MUA for this great tip. Andrew is a professional make up artist who often tweets really useful make up tips on Twitter, so do check him out and give him a follow!). You can always use a lighter product after you have concealed to create that Kim Kardashian look!
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer can also be used to cover up blemishes, acne scarring, hyper pigmentation, spots and lots of other nasties we all try to hide. As this product dries to a matte finish and the coverage is quite high, do make sure your skin is properly moisturised before applying it as it can look a bit cakey otherwise.

Now the packaging of MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is one of the best and worst things about this product. I love how elegant this looks in the glass bottle, and the fact that it's got a pump. The fact that the bottle is made out of glass though means that you have to be quite careful with it, and not drop it. The pump is a great idea, but it does annoy me slightly, as it always dispenses more product than you actually need. I think having a pump on MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation would be a lot more useful than having it on this concealer...
Here is one pump of MAC Pro Longwear Concealer on on my arm.

 And here you can see the product blended out. I used a Real Techniques buffing brush to do this as the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer  has quite a thick consistency and it was quite difficult to blend out using just my fingers.

Now 1 pump of MAC Pro Longwear Concealer covers quite a large area as you can see, and I am thinking of decanting this product into another pot so I don't end up wasting any of it.
This product almost feels like high coverage foundation, and it can also be mixed in with your favourite moisturiser and used as a tinted moisturiser, which is quite handy with summer being around the corner!
Retailing at £14.50 for 9ml, I know this product is more on the pricey side but it is a really versatile, good quality concealer that comes in 15 different shades and gives a really flawless finish to the skin.
Have any of you tried MAC Pro Longwear Concealer? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
If you're reading this in the UK, have a great bank holiday weekend!
Till next time,

  8. Love this concealer for the undereye area! And, just like you, the pump is quite a con, but the more often you use it, the better it's cooperating :) At least, that's my experience!
    Don't you love how long lasting the concealer is, without creasing?

  10. I thought I would love this as I get on well with the Pro Longwear foundation.....whilst I don't hate it I don't love it either. I prefer more coverage and thats why I have gone back to my Studio one from MAC. A long favourite of mine.
