MAC Pro Longwear Foundation Review - A Force to be Reckoned with!


It is quite refreshing to find a product that does what it says on the tin, and that list would include MAC Pro Longwear Foundation -  it actually is long wear. This is my first line foundation for long 13 hour shifts, hot humid environments, special occasions with albums of photo taking, times when I want my look to last all day. I've worn this to weddings, to the mountains, and even to the beach - its that heavy duty!

This is a liquid foundation with a medium consistency. It goes on easily and it dries quickly so I recommend working fast.

I found that the best way to apply this is with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Stipple then swipe and buff in circular motions. It's less messy than fingers and buffing makes it less streaky. This way it provides an even finish.

The effect of the application is a matte yet brightening glow. This is not as matte as MAC Studio Fix Fluid, and not as dewy as MAC Face and Body Foundation. It provides medium buildable coverage that can conceal blemishes. It looks natural on the skin, like 'My Skin But MUCH Better' and yet does not feel heavy nor suffocating on the skin.

It can oxidise after hours of wear, making you look a bit more tanned. I suggest choosing a shade up - I am usually NC30 for most MAC things, but with this foundation, I prefer NC25. I do have NC30 however in case I wanted to look a bit more Victoria Secret-like.

It does not settle into lines, plus!, but of course just in case I still set this with powder - my current go-to is MAC Blot Powder

For a longwearing product, this does not cause my skin to break out at all. My skin actually adores this stuff! I am very happy with this foundation and it does everything its supposed to. It holds a firm place in my makeup heart. 

Available from your local MAC Store.
