MAC Pro Longwear Concealer Review and Swatches

MAC concealers have never failed me (hello my favorite Select Coverup and Studio Sculpt Concealer!) and the Pro Longwear Concealer that debuted with the Pro Longwear collection a while ago is no different.

The Pro Longwear Concealer is a liquid concealer that comes in a tiny 9ml glass vial with a pump. The 15-shade color selection covers a variety of skin tones and matches just like their regular foundations. I normally use NC30 for MAC face products and am a NC30 for this one as well.

The concealer is very pigmented and provides medium to full coverage. You get quite a lot of product with one pump so I like to mix it with a tiny drop of my favorite CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer or eye cream to cover my undereye circles, redness around the nose and even out my forehead and lip area completely. See how opaque this is?

The finish is also very matte yet it manages to stay natural-looking and I never have to set it with powder. Plus it does stays true to its claim of being long-wearing and water-proof and lasts all day on me. I will definitely be keeping this one around.
