Mac Pro Long Wear Concealer

Hello hello my favourite people!

 

I cannot believe I have not reviewed this concealer yet. I was getting my blogging affairs in order the other day and when I realized a review on this concealer had not been done, I gasped in shock. I mean sure this concealer is talked about a lot, but it deserves the respect of a good ol’ review. So I’m going to right this wrong right now!

 

Coverage: The coverage is incredible! It will cover up that spot so well you’ll forget that you had one to begin with! This is definitely an incredible concealer to use when you want to wear a light coverage base, but you also don’t want you blemishes to show.
Longevity: It lasts an incredible amount of time! Once again, with a light coverage base it is quite nifty. Generally when we wear a light coverage or even a medium coverage base, our blemishes began to peak throughout the day. This concealer helps at keeping them covered and lasts pretty well, especially over active blemishes.
Formula:The formula is on the dry side but it’s also thin in texture so it doesn’t go on cakey and it’s also easy to blend!
Packaging:The packaging is a bit iffy. The concealer comes with a pump which is odd and it’s pretty difficult to control the amount you get out, it spits out way to much product. I have fashioned a little trick around avoiding wastage. I wrote a post about it, click here to see it! Also keep in mind this is a glass bottle packaging, do not drop it. It will only end in tears!
Under the eyes or for spots?: Even though everyone talks about this concealer in regards to applying it underneath the eyes, it is seriously amazing for spot concealing. Its dry-ish formula doesn’t make it look good for underneath my eyes and I feel like it hits Holy Grail status in the spot concealing department. I mean I have many under eye concealer favorites but I am beyond fussy in the spot concealing category.
Pros: It’s full coverage, easy to work with. Lasts a long long time, I’ve had the same bottle for over 2 years and I am only a little over half way.
Cons: Slightly drying, so it’s difficult to work with under the eyes, it isn’t super cheap (though considering how long the bottle lasts it is definitely worth the money.
Price: $32 AUD
Shade range: There are 16 shades! That is pretty good for a concealer
Availability: Mac is found in myer and you can purchase off their online site as well!
Overall thoughts: I adore this concealer. It is so reliable and works so well. For the price it lasts an incredible time, it’s an amazing investment. If you feel like your skin only has blemishes here and there you don’t even need to invest in a full coverage foundation. with this concealer you could go for a light / medium coverage and this bad boy has got your back.
Rating: 9.9 / 10
Would I repurchase it?: I purchased two in the beginning, I am yet to open the second one as the first bottle is still going strong after 2 years.

 

That wraps up the post. Have you guys tried this concealer? What are your thoughts? Tell me in the comments below. I hope you all have a great day and I’ll see you in the next post!

    One of my favorite concealers. I started buying it a few years back and you're right it does last a long time! I've only ever had to buy 2 bottles!

    I love how it lasts a long time, any high end product is worth it in my eyes if it lasts that long

    I love this concealer too! I try loads of other ones-but it's one I always come back to. A bottle seems to last forever as well, which is always nice!

    I think I might need to try this as you have made it sound so good! My current concealer costs around £3 and I think it's good. It's called Collection Lasting Perfection. X

    This is one concealer that I have not tried! I'm surprised to hear it's a little drying. I'm addicted to my nars radiant creamy concealer but this is definitely on my “to try” list!

    I have tried it and it provides excellent coverage, but it's too heavy for me. Plus so hard to dispense from their packaging. But LOTS of people love it.

    I'm in love with this concealer. I'm very skeptical and picky when it comes to high end makeup, like it better be dam good if I am going to spend a lot of money on a product but this concealer is amazing and lasts forever. I've heard a lot about that concealer, it's next to impossible to get in Australia.

    It is a tiny bit drying, though keep in mind I have dry/dehydrated skin so it's more noticeable for me but it's a fantastic spot concealer.

    I find that a little goes a long way and that's why I use it for spots, underneath the eyes it's also heavy for me. Oh I find the pump frustrating too. I have a post written up which I've linked in this review which has helped me work around the pump issue.

    It gives such a great coverage, however it is not really suitable for warmer months, it is kinda heavy!

    I really want this, but I just can't stand that glass bottle. I've heard it breaks easily and it's very difficult to get the right amount of product you need 🙁 I need something for those blasted break outs though. xo

    I've been wanting to purchase this concealer for so long! I've always thought about using it to cover my under eyes, but I guess I might have to rethink this and purchase it with the intent to cover spots. Great post!

    […] Mac pro long wear concealer Is it really a surprise that this concealer made the cut? I mean I think everyone, their dog and their dog’s imaginary friend would have this concealer on their holy grail list. But here’s the shocker, I rarely use this underneath my eyes but instead I use it as a spot concealer and boy does it do a good job in that department. This is literally the kind of concealer that will allow you to get away with light or medium coverage foundation but still give you the flawless ‘full coverage’ look. The one universal issue is the packaging, firstly that it’s made out of glass which has led to some tragic endings for some people and the infuriating pump that dispenses way too much product. Luckily I’ve found a way to tackle the pump issue and you can click here to find out what it is. I’ve also reviewed it, clear here. […]
