MAC Pro Longwear Concealer Review

I am so in love with this product that I'm actually at a loss of words. It's more than a Holy Grail... I don't think I will ever feel the need to try another concealer again. Sound dramatic? Well that's because the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer has changed my freaking life!
 
 
I was beginning to accept the notion that no matter what concealer I tried, I'd never get my hands on one that wouldn't crease! More than that, I also thought I would never find a concealer that would completely - we're talking 100% - cover my under eye circles. Well guess what ladies? THIS ONE DOES BOTH!
 
 


 
 
 
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is full coverage with a liquid consistency. As you can see it comes with a pump -- which is a blessing and a curse. Unfortunately when you use the pump waaaaay too much is dispersed and there's not much you can do about it... Well, except put it in a MAC sample pot like I do! I put about 2 pumps in the sample cup and use it directly from there!
 
 
 
 
 
You need the tiniest amount to conceal even the darkest of under eye circles.
 
 
 

The picture above shows the amount I use per eye, sometimes even less!
 
 
The best way to apply it is to use your ring finger in a patting motion and set with a VERY fine powder. My favorite is the Dermablend setting powder shown below!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Moral of the story? MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is the BEST under eye concealer out there! Period!
 
 
Here are my before and after photos... My eye makeup had been on for quite a few hours so no judgements :)
 
 
 
Thank you for reading!

  6. I'm sorta getting obsessed with Mac, such a good thing and bad thing at the same time! This is going to be my next purchase once I finish with either the Bobbi Brown corrector or the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch!

  8. I have wanted to try this concealer for so long but have always been a bit worried that it would crease due to it being full coverage! You've convinced me to try :)

    Great blog btw, I've just came across it...you have yourself a new follower! :)

    1. I think no matter what every concealer will settle slightly in prominent lines... but this is BY FAR the best I have ever tried! You should definitely give it a try!

    1. That's funny because the last few days I keep pondering that idea... using it a foundation I mean. I think I will give it a go!

  12. I also think this is a very nice concealer especially around the eyes :) But my holy grail must be make up for ever full cover extreme camouflage cream :)
