MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer had been on my 'To Have' list for a very long time and I couldn't resist giving it a whirl when I received a MAC gift card (dangerous territory). 

Last year I went through a phase of being absolutely obsessed with everything MAC. I am not too sure why and put it down to having my eyes opened to a makeup brand I had heard everything about. I still love MAC products but I am no longer one of those gaga eyed girls awaiting their next collection and making sure I have everything in it. I received a gift card for my 21st birthday last year and put it to use on a few items I wanted to try bar the 'holy grail' status lipstick that I already have nine of. I had seen this everywhere and the claims hit everything I had wanted in a concealer.

So was it worth it? 

In a sense, yes! With having drier undereyes I must start by saying you need to moisturise. On days where my undereyes are drier than normal this product is just a no go unlike my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer or my bareMinerals Stroke of Light but on days where everything is cool in the undereye hood this is a wonder to use. It really brightens up the eye area without feeling to clawing and thick. I love the buildable texture and will often just pat it on with my finger OR if wanting more coverage I whip a brush out.

The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer retails for £17.50. I decided on the shade NW15 as I compared NC15 and NW15 on either eye and this seemed to make the most difference to any darkness or redness concerns I had dwelling underneath there. Not only does a little go a LONG way but I cannot see myself running out of this concealer anytime soon as I literally need not even half a pump - to answer some questions in your heads, this does work around the face and not just under the eyes from eradicating redness on and around the nose to covering those poxy pimples without looking too caky, I can say that although I do love other more, this still runs in my Top 5.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer


  1. I love this concealer and I use it regularly when I'm going foundation free, because a pump is perfect for undereye & any blemishes etc. I don't have dry under eye area though but can see why it might be a bit drying if you do x

    1. That's how I use it when my skin isn't so dry! It's such a nice colour too :) x

  2. I don't like to use mine undereye because I find it creases, but it's soooo good to use on my pimples.

    1. I love it on blemishes! Lasts all day! :)
