It’s been a M.A.C week on my blog this week.
M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer in NC25 is a concealer everybody and their Mom, Aunty’s and even dogs own. And I have only jumped on this bandwagon. Lets just say I am happy that I finally own this little stuff in a bottle.
What M.A.C Has To Say:
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.
16 shades available – 8 NWshades and 8 NC shades
Cool: NW15, NW20, NW25, NW30, NW35, NW40, NW45, NW50

Texture & Finish:
This concealer has a creamy liquid texture and a matte finish. The Mac Pro Longwear Concealer is, in my opinion, has the best of both worlds – provides just the right amount of moisture for under the eyes. I have not yet tried it on those pesky blemishes but I can imagine that it would be firm enough. Even though it is a creamy liquid it dries pretty fast and its sets to a matte finish.
The Mac Pro Longwear Concealer has a great medium to high coverage. I love how it hides my dark and tired under eye circles. When I first applied it I was in shock. I showed my husband and he immediately noticed a difference. Unfortunately I can’t tell you, if it covers redness, veins, blemishes, scars. As I have not had to use it on things like that. But I am sure if you Google you will be able to find reviews. Let me just warn you that you have to be extra gentle with the pump. As it will give you enough product to conceal your whole face. And with this concealer you only need the tiniest amount. It is very light weight
For testing out the product I applied this product with a Real Techniques Deluxe Crease brush, Beauty Blender and my ring finger. I found that it worked well with those tools (and yes our fingers are some of the best beauty tools) I would have to say my favourite way of applying it was with my RT Deluxe Crease Brush.
When I first tested out this concealer I tested it out for a full 12 hours. I applied it at 10AM til 10PM. I did not set my under eyes with any powder. This stuff held its place for the full 12 hours. I love the fact that it did not settle in my fine lines. And keep in my mind I did not even set my under eyes after I applied the product. That is just awesome to me.
Comes in a glass bottle with a pump. I must say that the glass bottle does scare me a little. If you had to drop it I would be shattered like that bottle LOL. The pump is not of great quality, you have to pump out the product very gently. For some reason it just pumps out way to much product.
I actually really like the smell. Not that is has a really powerful smell. But something about it just makes me want to keep sniffing it. Dont judge
$20. 00 for 9ML/ 0.30FL OZ

If you have never used concealer before or your on the market for a new concealer. Give this stuff a try I swear you will not be disappointed. Only issues I really have with it, is that the pump just pumps out way to much product. I feel like I end up wasting some of the product.b Also that it comes in a glass bottom. $20.00 might seem a little excessive for a concealer, but it is really worth it. It holds up really well and conceals what you need it to conceal and not budge. It does not contain SPF 15 so that should do good with flash photography.
I use an entire pump for the purpose of the photo’s.
