WORTH THE HYPE: MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

MAC is a popular brand, but not one that I’ve ever been super in-love with, I generally find their products are a little over hyped and often just popular because of the name attached to it… MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, however, is extremely worth the hype and quite possibly the best concealer I’ve ever tried. Overtime I’ve found many concealers that I love, but there has always been one performance ridden quality that has disappointed me. With NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer it was the shade range, with Bobbi Brown’s Concealer it was just a little too creamy and as for It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye it creased so easily. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer however, ticks all the boxes. Firstly, it gives the best coverage I’ve ever found in a concealer, all you need is the tiniest pin sized amount to cover dark circles, discoloration and pimples. The formula is perfect; not too creamy and not too dry which means unlike most concealers it can be used for the whole face and on any imperfection. The staying power is great and lasts on me for over eight hours without showing any signs of creasing or fading, but you do need to blend quickly as the product sets to a matte finish in under a minute. The shade range is great, but not perfect (very typical MAC) but there is a shade that matches my super fair skin, so I’m happy. There is only one thing that I dislike HATE about this product and that is the packaging. The “pump” container, although hygienic dispenses far too much product (you really do only need a tiny amount to cover) I feel that a squeeze tube container would have been more appropriate. Overall I LOVE this concealer, it gives the most amazing coverage, can be used all over the face and is (so far) the best I’ve tried.
