MAC Pro Longwear Foundation

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation

Hello Emirati Makeup and Beauty readers!
Foundations are one of my most purchased items, not because I finish them quickly but because I really enjoy testing out different brands, textures and formulations! I should begin this review by letting you all know that I sway towards a semi-matte finish with a medium coverage, although I do own some dewier foundations and some which are also a lot more matte. The foundation I have decided to review today is MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 in shade NC30. When I initially tried this foundation, I felt it was slightly too drying upon application with a flat, medium-sized foundation brush. I recently thought I would give the foundation another chance, this time using a stippling brush and it works wonders!

The foundation is packaged in a bottle with a pump, which is fairly convenient as it is not too bulky in a sanitary bag. However, with all of my foundations, I dislike bottles (with or without a pump) and tubes. Instead, I squeeze/pour my foundations into small air-tight sample pots as I feel this way I won’t unnecessarily waste or over-use product. I also like to get a small amount of product onto the inside of a sample pot lid and gently dip my brush in and apply directly to my face. This is the best way to get a smooth, even and natural finish for whichever foundation you use.

Once applying a small amount of the MAC Pro Longwear foundation to your skin, it is easily blended with a sponge or brush. I like to use a stippling brush to buff the foundation into my skin all the way down to the jaw line for the most natural, flawless results with medium coverage. However, if you prefer a heavier coverage, it is a buildable foundation used with a dense, flat foundation brush and sponge to avoid streaks.

Using a foundation containing SPF is a great way of keeping your skin healthy and prevents premature ageing, so this was a bonus when purchasing the foundation. As it is a Pro Longwear product, the test strengthens over time – it is safe to say that this foundation came out in full force as it survived a 1 hour tube journey at 7:30am, 9 hours at work and a 1 hour tube journey home. Amazing! It claims to give you up to 15 hours of wear, which is a huge statement for Mac to stand by and live up to, but with this product they have nothing to worry about.

For those of you who have oilier skin, I would recommend buffing a translucent powder or Mac Fix Powder on top to keep those annoying oils at bay as I did find myself slightly dabbing my t-zone with a blotting tissue during midday.

Price and availability:
£20 for a Mac foundation may seem reasonable yet somewhat steep, but for a product which has high durability yet gives you a nice, natural finish – it is most definitely worth every penny. Mac products have been more and more readily available online, most shopping malls or via telephone order.
