Mac Pro Longwear Concealer NC35: Review , Swatch

January 10, 2015

Hey munchkins,

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  laugh ). Now let me tell you why  *boast*

Price : 1,900 INR / US$20.00

Quantity : 9 ml / 0.30 US fl oz

What M.A.C claims?

“A lightweight fluid concealer that provides medium to full coverage with a comfortable, natural matte finish. Colour-true formula lasts up to 15 hours. Helps conceal and correct the look of under-eye circles, and discolorations. Comes in a clear glass vial with a matte black pump..”

 

How to Use :

  • Pump out a tiny amount on the back of your hand.
  • Take a concealer brush or with the help of your finger, dot it under your eyes and on your blemishes wherever its needed.
  • Pat it lightly till its nicely blended.
  • Set the areas where you applied the concealer with powder.

 

Available shades :

There are 16 shades available in this concealer with 8 cool and 8 warm tones. You can check it out here.

Packaging

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.

 

My Experience

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.

Rating

4.5/5 (0.5 less only for the bad packaging)

 

Overall Verdict

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.

 

Have you tried MAC Pro Longwear Concealer? Which one is your favorite ? Which product from their line is your favorite ?Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers*kiss*

  • Reply Laarni January 11, 2015 at 2:54 am

    Good choice, Purva!!!! This is my HG concealer as well! I am about to buy a new bottle this year! I picked up the NW30. Next time you try this shade, too, as it has pink tones that can definitely take away your under eye circles! I love the finish! It’s just so great, well, except for the pump. Pfft.

    BTW, can you take a picture of that small sample container? Thanks!!!

    • Reply Purva January 22, 2015 at 5:43 am

      Hey laarni.. I tried the warm shade too but it was too pink for my face..That is where i need more concealing because i have acne scars.. Moreover i have yellow undertones and this one suits better ofcourse along with a powder that matches my skin..
      I have a sample container which i got from clinique ..thats the one which i use.. It is the usual tiny round pot. I dont have a pic ..i will click it smile

  • Reply Rini January 11, 2015 at 4:14 pm

    Nice review… n u r lucky that u got mac. Can you suggest some easily available concealer??

    • Reply Purva January 22, 2015 at 6:22 am

      Hey rini.. I like loreal super blendable and faces pan concealer as well.. If you have dry skin i recommend going for faces as it is on the creamier side..but make sure you set it well and creamy concealers have a tendency to settle into fine line.. If you have oily skin.. I would rather suggest loreal.. It also has a decent coverage .. but the shades available are limited sad

    Hey Purva, wow this thing REALLY REALLY covers! I haven’t tried this one yet, but I’ve heard great things about it! I’ve been trying the Matchmaster concealer and liking it a lot tho! That one is for some quick concealing, but the coverage is not nearly as opaque!

    • Reply Purva January 22, 2015 at 6:35 am

      Oh yes sunny..I have heard quite a lot about matchmaster range.. I have not tried it yet though because i prefer matte ones more for my face as it turns oily very quickly.. But i might check it out next and hopefully it should work with a good setting powder smile
