How is the weekend going? Today I have my most favorite product up for review which is M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer. I can not tell you enough how many concealers I have. I hoard them whenever I get a chance. I have had acne problem since my teens which settled in between for good 4-5 years but now its showing up again. This is why I have always had concealers in my vanity ever since I got to know what makeup is. I don’t want to keep you waiting to know how I feel about this product. I am telling you right away that I LOVEEEEE it ( with ‘LOVE’ in caps ). Now let me tell you why *boast*
Price : 1,900 INR / US$20.00
Quantity : 9 ml / 0.30 US fl oz

This concealer comes in an appealing palm size transparent glass bottle with a black pump and a cap. To be honest I got this concealer because I found the packaging very cute. But all my hopes were shattered when I started using this product. The pump dispenser is the worst part about this entire thing. It is stiff and pumps out way too much product then needed because of which you end up wasting a lot of it. Also, because this vial is made of glass, you have to be very careful while handling it. The bottle is very fragile and if it fells down, it is going to break into pieces. Though I found out a solution to this. What I do is I take out a little amount of product in a small sample container ( which you can ask for at the Mac’s counter itself ) and use it from there. I pour in more when I finish the product in this small container.
This is honestly one of the best concealer I have ever used..my Holy Grail *yes* I love it so so much, leaving aside the packaging. I have it in the shade NC-35 which is not an exact but the closest match to my skin. NC35 has yellow undertones with a hint of orange to it. The concealer is liquid in texture which makes the product very easy to use and blend . It goes on smoothly and sets to a natural matte finish. You need the tiniest amount to cover any blemishes,redness and dark circles that you may have. I also use it for highlighting my face and priming my eye lids at times. The best part is that it does not settles into the fine lines (I have some around my eyes).It provides amazing coverage without making the skin feel heavy or loaded with makeup. The coverage can be built to full easily without any signs of creasing. This is my savior in those Acne days I have. I just dab a little amount on the places I need it and swirl my small round brush lightly over it. The maximum time I have worn it for is around 12 hours and I must tell you this concealer didn’t budge at allllllllll. So if you are out for a party, Do not Worry , because it ain’t going anywhere. You don’t really need to set it with powder as the finish is matte but I prefer setting it anyway. If you have dry skin, I highly recommend using a hydrating moisturizer underneath to not emphasize the flakes/dry patches on the skin. And if you are a girl with oily/combination skin,, You are going to love it *yes*
There are not many links to buy it online and the links where I could find it have listed this item at double the price so I would suggest you to get it from a MAC store itself.
4.5/5 (0.5 less only for the bad packaging)
Needless to say, I love MAC Pro Longwear concealer. It is the best concealer I have used so far. I am very much impressed with how good it is. I love the coverage and the texture of it. I would highly recommend it for combination/oily skin beauties whereas if you extremely dry skin , I would say , use a good moisturizer under it or just skip it.
