MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is probably one of the best longlasting concealers that I've ever used. It's perfect for both under eye area and the face.

Last week we’ve already agreed on the best longlasting foundation you can use for a special occasion. What else do we need to pair it with? Right, concealer! MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is the perfect pair for MAC Pro Longwear Foundation and this week we’ll find out if it’s just as good as my beloved foundation!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer: Product Description

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.

As usual, all MAC products come in a black matte carton box. There’s 9ml/0.30 fl.oz of product in it.

Here’s the packaging itself: it looks pretty cool, this little vial.

There is a pumping system. And there’s the first (and only one) problem of this concealer. The pump is so incredibly tight that it’s almost impossible to squeeze out the needed amount of product. I tried really hard and still every time I get way too much product. I’ve thought of a solution: I squeeze one small pump into a small lenses container and keep it there until I’ve used it up. It kind of solves the problem but of course it’s not the ideal solution!

My MAC Pro Longwear Concealer shade is NW15:

NW15 is probably the lightest shade of the range. It’s perfect to be used in case of dark under eye circles but it also does an amazing job with highlighting the face.

This picture is taken with the flash so the shade appears lighter than it really is. But this concealer is pretty white and due to this color you can achieve a real photoshop effect without photoshop!

By the way I haven’t photoshopped any of the following pictures. I mean, we all want to look photoshopped but in real life so it makes no sense to make the photos prettier than they are in real life. I don’t want you guys to be inspired by the amazing photos then be completely disappointed once you’ve applied a product on your own face. So, no Photoshop!

Here I already applied MAC Pro Longwear Foundation NC15:

And here I added MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15 under my eyes (on the whole area under and around the eyes, under the eye brows and on the eyelids), and on the center of my face. Look what a huge difference it makes!

Here I brushed up my eyebrows, added some white eye pencil, white and peach cream eye shadow, a blush and a lipstick but no mascara so that you can see better how beautiful the eyes look on their own!

And here’s the full makeup!

In my MAC Pro Longwear Foundation review I explained that after I was done with this makeup I went outside and it started raining a lot. I had no umbrella and went on my bike so when I came hame my face was ‘washed’ by the rain. My clothes were dripping wet! And yet, the foundation and concealer were still there!

My Opinion:

I am in love with both the MAC Pro Longwear products that I’ve tried! The concealer is really amazing. It covers my dark circles like they’ve never been there. It highlights the face in a very natural way. It is waterproof (yep I’ve checked this one out haha) and stays so well and so long on your face! I’ve also used this concealer for my wedding day and it was amazing the job that it did! It photographs beautifully and adds this ‘no photoshop photoshopped’ effect. I love it!
