MAC Pro Longwear Concealer Review

I got my first MAC foundation in November and ever since it`s all I`ve been talking about. I know, you`re tired of hearing about it, that`s why I thought it was time to try something else. Everyone loves MAC products, but I still find the price for the lipsticks and eye shadows ridiculous, sorry. The base products, on the other hand, are a completely different thing and I think investing in a good foundation or concealer will do wonders for you. A few weeks ago I went to MAC for a makeup session, it was the day of the Bloggers XMAs Party, I don`t remember if I told you. I always find the staff in MAC Westfield Stratford City so nice, the girls are very helpful and chatty, without being too pushy. Anyways, if you pay for a service you also get a voucher you can redeem in store for products.  A lot of beauty bloggers seem to love this concealer, so I thought I would give it a try. 

I`ll spoil the review right now and tell you that I love it, it`s the best concealer I ever tried. If Rimmel Wake Me Up and Collection Lasting Perfection decide to have a baby, this is the result you get. Got you a bit confused?I`ll explain in a second. Those 2 are my favourite concealers, but one is good only for blemishes (Collection) and one is good only for dark circles (Rimmel). This, on the other hand, ticks all the boxes.

The concealer has a very creamy consistency, that it`s easy to blend, whether you use a brush or your fingers. Doesn`t matter what method you prefer, the result is still the same: a flawless matte finish that does not look cakey at all. It has quite a high coverage, so it will hide any spots or blemishes, but at the same time will brighten up your under-eye area without drying it. It does not crease or flake and several hours later it still looks like you just applied it. Most of the times I like to set it with a powder, but there were days when I skipped this part and it still looks great.

There is a minor thing that I dislike though and that`s the pump. Normally it makes things easier, but in this case, I think it dispenses too much product. Like I said, it`s a high coverage product and you only need a tiny amount, so I feel like I`m wasting a lot of it. I don`t have many spots to hide, so maybe that`s just me, but for 17.50£ I wish the pump would be easier to control.

Other than that, though, it`s a great product, totally worth the hype. Even with the pump waste, I reckon it will last me for 4-5 months and when it`s gone I`ll definitely repurchase it. If any of you tried this product let me know if you like it and if you have the same problems with the pump. If not, I always love reading your recommendations, so tell me about your Holy Grail concealer.

  1. I'm so glad to hear positive things about it! I've wanted to try this product for ages and ages but was always on the fence about it.

    Thanks so much for such a lovely, very honest review :)

    1. I still use the Collection one when i have bad breakouts, but this has a really good coverage as well and it`s not drying, so definitely worth the investment!

  3. This sounds like a great concealer but I agree, I think I would struggle with the pump too! I love Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer and NYX HD concealer!

    1. I found the Soap and Glory one a bit too drying for me, but the NYX one is definitely on my wishlist.

  4. This is my favourite concealer ever and it has been for over a year now. With content use I still have like a third of a bottle left so that's pretty impressive too x

    1. Couldn`t believe when you told me, those girls are so nice to me. Go during the weekdays, that`s when I go and maybe because it`s not that busy, they`re friendlier.

    1. I was matched to their palest shade I think, but works for me. You should definitely check in store, see how it looks.

  7. Believe it or not, I have only used MAC lipsticks but never anything else. I find it a touch unnerving to walk into MAC stores, some of the SA are really snotty so I avoid going in there. :-/

    1. So many people tell me this, as a person that works in retail I find it so annoying when people tell me they got bad customer service. You should always be treated with respect in a store! Guess I`m really lucky, might be the only person that got good Mac customer service.

  8. I love pro long wear foundation (recently reunited with it after a long time :) )so I am sure this concealer is also really good, it will be the next thing I will need to check. However I agree that after paying that much, I'd expect it to have a pump too.x

    1. The pump is there, but it`s stiff and releases a lot of product. A lot of people say they changed the pump, maybe I`ll do that.

    1. Try it when you go into a MAC store and see how it looks after a day. It`s a bit expensive, so I think you should be really sure before buying it. I loved it, but my skin is not that dry.
