MAC Pro Longwear Concealer | Review

MAC Pro Longwear (1).jpg

Hi Darlings,

In today’s post I’m reviewing the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, and this is going to be a DOUBLE REVIEW: both my sista Julia (normal/dry skin) and I (oily/combination skin) use it so you can see from two prospective how this product works.

Let me tell you, she recently become obsessed with make up and I take full credit for it, but when we were younger I remember she only wore a few things and concealer was one of them, so I really trust her recommendations.

I don’t have really heavy dark circles but I have fine lines, so I mainly need a long lasting product (it’s called Longwear), so I combined Julia’s suggestions plus the fact that MAC was on sale for 20% off that day and you know, I basically HAD TO BUY IT!

You can get it on maccosmetics.com or in store for 23$

PACKAGING

It comes in a cardboard box. The actual bottle is made of glass and it has a pump. It contains 9ml of product that will easily last you forever: Julia used it almost everyday for two years and just now she had to buy a new bottle.

We not the biggest fan of the glass bottle: it looks nice and fancy but I’m personally incredibly clumpsy so I’m always scared to break it.

I appreciate the pump as it’s really sanitary but it gets quite dirty and disperses too much product, you won’t need a full pump to cover your undereyes, I always use half of what I disperse, therefore I would prefer a doe foot applicator that will make me waste less product.

EFFECT & LASTING POWER

I use the shade NC20 which is a perfect match for me.

As you can see the concealer is nice a liquidy when you first apply it. It’s really easy to blend, I use a brush but your finger tip will work too, and once it sets it becomes a really nice satin finish that will last all day long.

I usually use a powder on top, Julia doesn’t: so weather to set it or not depends on your preference, I’ve also tried without powder and the lasting power didn’t change.

She also uses it as an eye primer and it makes her eyeshadow last longer. I have estremely oily eyelids so it’s enough for me.

Even at the end of the day your concealer will still be in place and you’ll have to take it off with make up remover.

*I don’t like it on pimples because it tends to show up and doesn’t last as long*

COVERAGE

As you can see I’m blessed with pretty light dark circles today but I have fine lines where my concealer tent to crease a lot.

This concealer other than the amazing lasting power it has medium to full coverage, Julia has really dark undereye and it covers them prefectly without looking heavy or cakey. It blends seamesly with your skin.

 

RATINGS:

  • Colour: 10/10
  • Longevity: 10/10
  • Application: 9/10
  • Texture: 10/10
  • Pigmentation: 9/10
  • Packaging: 7/10

GRADE: A

We are absolutely obsessed with this concealer, it covers dark circles amazingly, it’s easy to apply and to blend, it lasts a long time and in the long run it’s worth the investiment because you use such a small amount it will last you forever. It never looks dry or cakey even at the endo of the day. The packaging is not the most travel friendly but it’s nice and fancy so it’s not a big problem. Just need to be carful.

Ciao Darlings,

Nel post di oggi vi parlo del MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, e questa sarà la mia prima DOPPIA REVIEW: sia io (pelle mista) che la mia sista Julia (pelle normale/secca) lo usiamo perciò vedrete da due prospettive diverse come funziona questo prodotto.

Lasciate che vi dica, l’amore di Julia per il make up è una cosa recente… E me ne prendo tutto il merito, ma quando eravamo più piccole vi assicuro che lei usava solo pochi prodotti e il correttore era una di quelle, perciò mi fido dei suoi consigli perchè è più esperta di me in materia.

Io non ho le occhiaie molto scure ma ho parecchie linee di espressione, perciò mi serve un prodotto che duri a lungo (il correttore si chiama Longwear) e se uniamo il fatto che lei lo elogia da anni con MAC in saldo al 20% in meno potete immaginare che dovevo averlo.

Lo potete prendere su maccosmetics.it o in negozio per 19,50$

PACKAGING

Quando lo acquistate arriva in una scatola di cartoncino. La boccetta è fatta di vetro e ha una pompetta. Contiene 9ml di prodotto che probabilmente vi durerà per sempre: Julia lo usa quasi tutti i giorni da due anni e solo ora ha dovuto comprarne uno nuovo.

Entrambe non amiamo la bottiglietta di vetro: ha un bell’aspetto elegante ma personalmente sono un po’ imbranata e ho sempre paura di romperla.

Apprezzo la pompetta perchè è la confezione più igenica ma si sporca facilmente e dispensa troppo prodotto, ne basta meno della metà di quello che esce per coprire l’intero contorno occhi. Avrei preferito un applicatore tipo quello da lucidalabbra perchè sprecherei meno prodotto.

EFFETTO & DURATA

Io uso il colore NC20 che è un match perfetto per me.

Come potete vedere il correttore è abbastanza liquido appena applicato. E’ facile da sfumare, io uso un pennello ma potete tranquillamente usare le dita, e una volta asciutto ha un effetto satinato e dura tutto il giorno.

Io di solito lo fisso con la cipria, Julia invece no: perciò dipende molto dal vostro tipo di pelle e preferenza personale, in realtà io ho provato anche senza cipria e la durata non cambia.

Julia lo usa anche come primer occhi e le fa durare l’ombretto tutto il giorno, le mie palpebre invece sono troppo oleose e il solo correttore non basta.

Comunque anche a fine giornata il correttore starà esattamente dove lo avete applicato e non sarà svanito nel nulla anzi dovrete proprio struccarlo.

*Non lo amo molto sui brufoli, in quanto tende a segnarli un po’ troppo e si scioglie facilmente*

COPRENZA

Come potete vedere per mia fortuna ho le occhiaie abbastanza chiare oggi ma ho delle linee di espressione evidenti dove il correttore tende a infilarsi parecchio.

Oltre ad una durata incredibile ha una coprenza medio-alta, Julia ha le occhiaie molto più evidenti di me e le copre perfettamente senza risultare pesante o pastoso. Si fonde perfettamente con la pelle.

 

VALUTAZIONE:

  • Colore: 10/10
  • Longevità: 10/10
  • Applicazione: 9/10
  • Texture: 10/10
  • Pigmentazione: 9/10
  • Packaging: 7/10

 

VOTO: A

Siamo assolutamente innamorate di questo correttore, copre le occhiaie in maniera eccellente, si applica e si sfuma facilmente, dura tutto il giorno e ripaga completamente la spesa nel tempo perchè ne basta pochissimo e perciò la confezione vi durerà a lungo. Non sembra mai pesante o secco anche a fine giornata. Il packaging non è dei più pratici ma non è questo grande problema. Bisogna solo fare un po’ di attenzione.

    As it happens, I’m running out of concealer now and was looking to try something new. This product looks great. But I’d agree with you in that I’d prefer it came in something less fragile. I can be clumsy.

    1. I have to be extra careful: I had a Nars foundation that fell on me and I broke the bottle 💔 so now I’m extra cautious #clumsyteam

  2. I’m going to have to try this. I have an issue with one part of my face being lighter than the other, so finding a good concealer is always tough.

    1. That’s tough! This comes in 16 different shades so you might find a match, plus people at Mac are usually super kind and will definitely help you 😉😘

  3. Wow! High ratings on this one huh? My SIL has used this for a while and she swears by it. Glad to see it stands up to multiple skin types!

    1. I keep recommending it to so many people, one of my closest friend just picked it up

  4. I struggle so much with finding good concealer. I have rosacea that flares right at the top of my cheek by the eye area and most concealers make it worse. I like that it can be used as an eye primer, as well, so I’m intrigued. I may just have to take a chance and try this one out!

    BTW, your eye color is beautiful!

    1. I have rosacea too! This works on mine 😘 thank you 💕

  5. I agree – the pump dispenses WAY too much product! So much waste every time.
    I did really like how long lasting this product was but I found it didn’t look natural under my eyes.
    It looks really good on you! Great review. 🙂

    1. Thank you! Maybe you got the wrong shade or maybe is too dry on you! I’m always scared of that pump 😂 thank you 💕

  6. Wow – I think that I need to try this for sure. I need to hide those dark circles, haha

    ChicAndModish.com

    1. Ahhaha this will hide them perfectly 💕

  7. I have heard so many people rave about this concealer and with MAC being one of my favourite brands I’m so surprised I have never tried it. Your review has made me want to buy it even more X

    1. It’s such a good product, you really need it 😊😘

  8. It’s so hard to find a good concealer! I would be more like your sister, so this is great to know!

    1. Yay! It works for almost everyone 😉😊💕

  9. I really like that this concealer comes with a pump – not a tube or doefoot! I love Mac stuff, so I’m really excited to try this based on your review!

    1. Thank you! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts 😊😘

  10. I recently got the pro long wear foundation and I love it! Now I’m convinced I need to try this as well 🙂 The foundation didn’t come with a pump so I had to get it separate, but I’m glad the concealer does have it included!

    1. I really want to check the foundation out, such a bummer that it doesn’t come with a pump. Thank you reading 😘

  11. I LOVE MAC Prolongwear concealer, my makeup artist used this to cover my dark circles for my wedding (and I have severe dark circles). I don’t know what else type of wizardry she did, but yeah. I wish she told me what shade she used on me. I have the Tarte Shape Tape concealer which I use everyday.

    Hannah the Mad Dog

    1. Yay! People at mac will probably help you to find your perfect shade, they did with me! I wish I could try shape tape but tarte is so hard to get here!!

  12. Looks like a great option! I use more of a cream currently but might look into this when I am done with that 🙂 Thanks!

    1. Yay! Let me know if you get it 😊😘

  13. Awesome review…I feel like I am always looking for new concealer!!!

    1. Yay! Thank you 💕

  14. I would love to try this concealer out! I legit have the worst under eye bags!!!

    1. This will help you so much!!
