Recently I have been wanting a fuller coverage when doing my make-up. I've had a few important days and nights where I have wanted my make-up to look as good as possible so I thought I would splurge on those items that I don't usually usually splurge on!
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15
I've had my eye on various different concealers by MAC. A lot of their concealer range has received pretty good reviews so I thought I can't go too far wrong with what I choose! Part of my reasoning behind choosing their Pro Longwear concealer was it being long wearing as the name would suggest. As I have mentioned countless times I want make-up that lasts as long as possible and ideally requires minimal touching up (not asking to much am I!) as I lead a busy lifestyle and I often expect my make-up to last from 7am to 10pm (again not asking much). I'm also a girl that hates touching up make-up! So this concealer appealed to me as it is specifically long wearing.
One thing I will say I wasn't happy with was the size of the product; especially for the amount you are paying for! For 0.30 Fl OZ you will have to pay £15.50. To put the size in to real terms the product is about the size of my little finger - with the lid being just below half of that size. So in light of this I have only being using this concealer for special occasions! Whilst we're on the packaging I need to express my disdain for the lid. It's that horrible matt type material that absorbs every make-up covered fingerprint on to the lid. I can never see the sense in that type of material being used in make-up packaging!
Anyway lets discuss the actual concealer itself. The concealer is fantastic! On the website it is described as 'medium to full coverage'. I think it is full coverage for sure - if you are after a concealer that you could double up as a foundation then this would be perfect! This product is also described as having a 'matte finish' which I also agree with. However if you team it up with a foundation that has a more dewy of satin finish it does not affect the finish of the foundation which is fantastic. If anything it gives the foundation an even base to sit on. The product has also been described as lasting '15 hours'. Astoundingly I agree with this as well! When I am taking my make-up off at the end of the day this concealer is still hanging on; covering those dark circles from my early 5am starts!
Overall despite my earlier rants about the packaging and the price I honestly love this product overall. Yes it has its downsides but I think if you just isolate your thoughts to the product alone you are definitely paying for quality. I would definitely recommend this for those special events; I have a few weddings to attend this year and I will definitely be pulling this out to use!
