Review: MAC Pro-Longwear Concealer

Second only to eye shadow, concealers are some of my most frequently purchased items. I get a bit concealer crazy whenever I see a new one released in the drugstore that claims to eliminate the look of dark circles while never creasing, and each time, the product has failed me. One fateful day I decided to buy this concealer that I’d always heard of on Youtube – and I can tell you it was a match made in makeup heaven.

I highly doubt I will ever try another concealer after this!

Lets start with the color shall we? This was my first MAC product so I was unsure of what color to get. I knew I was a neutral tone so I asked the lady at the counter for guidance. I have this in NC30 and the shade is perfect for me, however, that being said I think next time I may pick up NC25, since I do prefer a lighter under eye region. (Yes, I told her that, and she still gave me this one.)

Pros: -The consistency! This concealer is the perfect texture, it’s thick enough to completely cover dark circles but smooth enough to not get stuck in your fine lines.

-Long wearing! I have slept in this concealer and in the morning, my eyes were still were holding on to a bit of the coverage from this product.

– Packaging: I love that it is in a container, not in a tube and that the product does not stick to the sides and  we cannot ignore the fact that this concealer comes with a pump! LIKE REALLY? Thank you Mac!

Cons: The price is the ONLY ONLY con I can think of with this concealer. It retails for 21 dollars but I would still buy it if it was twice this price. This is a life saver for insomniacs and the genetically under-eye unfortunate alike.

Mini Disclaimer

* This concealer did settle in my lines ONE time, but after I blended it away, it was fine for the rest of the day. So if you do accidentally apply too much, blend it once and you won’t have to worry anymore about wrinkly looking eyes.
