Review | MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer in NC15

On my hunt for the perfect concealer I came across the Pro Long Wear Concealer from MAC. A friend of mine used it and really liked it. I was lucky enough to get it for my birthday so there I went.. Is this going to be the one?

This is the second concealer from MAC that I am trying. I already have the MAC Studio Finish Concealer in my stash and I think that concealer is pretty good. I only get a very oily finish after a while. This one, on the other hand, is definitely different!

MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer 9 ml / 0.30 US fl oz €18.00

According to MAC:
‘‘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.’’

Apart from the colour, this is NC15, it has a completely different formula. It comes in a glass bottle with a pump. Nice and hygienic, but you easily squeeze out to much. That is just a waste of product, so not very convenient. It has a scent, but is not to overpowering in any way.

This concealer has a creamy, liquid consistency. It blends very nicely into the skin, leaving a matte finish. It pretty much covers up anything!
In a lot of acne coverage videos on YouTube, girls used this as a foundation to cover up there blemishes and scarring. I agree with this. It definitely gives a good amount of coverage for all kinds of imperfections. Although as a foundation you would have to purchase it a lot throughout the year! This will not be very nice for your bank account..

As the name says it stays on your face for a long time. Of course I never wear my face make-up for 15 hours, but I think it would last all those hours. I also find my t-zone stays more matte than when I use the MAC Studio Finish Concealer. So I would definitely recommend this concealer for people with combination/oily skin.
I like to use my Zoeva Concealer Buffer to blend it in. It makes it easier and more hygienic than using my fingers.

I am pleasantly surprised by this concealer. It covers up all my imperfections and gives my skin a matte and flawless finish. If you are looking for a concealer that stays on for ages and covers up your scarring and blemishes, than this is the one to go for!

I am still on the hunt for good concealers, though. If you have found the one, please let me know. I would love to try it!
