In the world of Pro Longwear, Foundation and Concealer carry the show with creamy, medium buildable coverage right through to a flawless, natural finish. Marathon makeup to go, made from micronized pigments to promote the smoothest application and colour purity.
One of the more exciting products MAC has launched recently is the Pro Longwear Concealer. If you are wearing concealer, it’s because you want to hide something. Concealer is one of those products that you don’t want to fade during the day, especially considering that reapplying in public isn’t the most elegant feat. Finally MAC has come up with a concealer that truly stays in place. Pro Longwear Concealer is transfer-resistant as well as water-resistant so you can even keep your flaws under cover while swimming. MAC promises this will last for up to fifteen hours without changing color. This is a welcome change from other long-wearing concealers on the market that tend to turn orange toward the end of the day.
The finish is very natural. It’s a bit on the matte side but the formula isn’t drying. This concealer is equally suited to the under eye area as it is to blemishes. It doesn’t contain pore-clogging ingredients so you can cover pimples without worrying about creating new ones in the process. You don’t have to shy away from the eye area with this product because it’s ophthalmologist tested.
MAC has come out with the ultimate in long-wearing foundations with their Pro Longwear Foundation. This foundation lasts a whopping fifteen hours which means it outlasts all of the other foundations in their line. It also gives you a few minutes to blend before it dries and becomes budge-proof. The coverage is medium but it’s buildable for those who need something more heavy duty. Like the Pro Longwear Concealer, it doesn’t change color and it is non-acnegenic and ophthalmologist tested. It also contains special ingredients to help control oil throughout the day. This foundation has an SPF of 10 and broad-spectrum UV protection so you don’t need to use a separate sunscreen with this product if you’re only outdoors sporadically.
Overall, the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation and Concealer are two stellar products. They really do stay in place and the fact that the color doesn’t change is a big plus. These are products that MAC devotees will be thrilled with and may even convert some non-MAC fans as well.
