Being a makeup addict I’ve realized that when I’m obsessed with a particular product I like to use every ounce of it and not leave any to waste; call it a pet peeve of mine. So any of you guys who share this can see how the packaging of Mac Prolong wear concealer is a makeup lover’s worst nightmare! I mean it always let’s out too much product an it’s not like you could screw the cap since they had that thing glued by NASA. Oh and storing it laying down only makes the product stuck on the side of the packaging. It’s just frustrating when a product you love VERY much frustrates you by the lousy packaging. So to save my sanity I found a way that’s made life easier and minimizes waste.
Step 1 –
Find a small empty jar. This could be something that use to hold gel eye liner, a cream eye shadow etc. I personally used a Maybelline colour tattoo jar. It happened to be a shade I wasn’t too fond of so I emptied it so I could use to store the concealer. (Not throwing hate on the Maybelline colour tattoos, I love those things like they were my kids!) As long as you have a small jar or container that you’ll be able to close air tight, you don’t want the concealer to dry out and mine never has dried out.
Step 2 –
Pump however many pumps of the concealer you’d like in the jar. I personally never emptied all my mac pro long wear into the jar, I always put on average 5 pumps of the concealer, use it up which takes me about 3 weeks and then pump some more.
That’s it really, obviously when you close it make sure you properly close it. But I find it so easy to control exactly how much concealer I want to use without wasting anything. I’ve had my mac pro long wear over a year and I haven’t experienced any problems with it! It’s been so easy to use it and I’ve never had to deal with the frustrating pump.
Do you guys use Mac pro long wear concealer? Does the pump frustrate you? Feel free to vent in the comments below! See you guys in the next post.
