Hello everyone !Today we talk about Mac pro longwear foundation review.This is the first time I test a foundation of this brand and it must be said that it is an exceptional promotion of 20% reduction that pushed me there.
And yes it is necessary to know that this kind of offers in Mac is almost non-existent compared to those, recurrent, of Sephora.
The prolonged nourishing waterproof is priced at 35,50 € per 25ml so I paid 28,40 € fortunately;)
Mac Pro Longwear Foundation Review.
Then there is already a small problem! Most foundations on the market have a capacity of 30ml. If this foundation contained the 30mL of reference, it would then cost 42,60 € … a little less affordable all of a sudden! We feel a bit ripped off after this kind of discovery!
It’s a bit like some Sephora products, I’m referring to the high-coverage concealer that contains less than half the product of Urban Decay Naked Circles and also retractable eyebrow pencil that lasts 2 weeks compared to 5 months for a pencil Benefit! Small price is therefore not necessarily synonymous with good deal! A wise man!
In short, after this unfortunate episode, we can now resume this review more with more lightness 🙂
Mac Pro Long foundation foundation: Reviews and ratings
With this foundation, Mac promises us waterproof resistant to any test and this with an unprecedented hold of 24h! Is it also good to specify that the outfit is medium to strong with a natural satin finish?
It was on these last promises that I decided to buy it and on the advice of a very pleasant counselor;)
After swearing only by the naturalness and lightness with the BB cream ginseng Erborian , I was at heart to find a product covering and satin.The consultant has selected the shade NC20 which is perfect for my current complexion.
Small Reminder: NC for beige, gold and NW tones for pink tones as a rule.
The packaging of the waterproof prolongwear is rather singular. At first glance, it reminds me of a tube of paint! I must say that it is convenient, especially when you reach the end of the bottle and so you can easily recover the remaining product by folding it in 4!
It is up to you to dose your product. No pump bottle to “manage” for you! So be careful not to get too much out of the tube because you will not be able to put back the material.
The texture of this foundation holds rather well, it is neither liquid nor too thick. On the other hand, I advise you to apply it rather quickly because matter freezes very quickly! The longer you wait, the harder it will be to work it and the result will not look pretty pretty.
I prefer to apply the prolongwear with my brush Zoeva n ° 102 rather than with a Beauty blender .
I find the result actually satin, as promised. The average coverage has managed to cover my redness but not my imperfections. It even shows my freckles, but that does not bother me, far from it, it gives a more natural side!
However, contrary to what the brand says, one cannot achieve total coverage with the prolongwear because this foundation is not adjustable. I had the misfortune once did not want to test a second layer and disaster! Exit the natural and hello the effect “surfed”!Having mixed skin, I did not encounter any worries of shine and I must even confess that I do not even powder! This tells you the reliability of the product!
So definitely I think it is a product suitable for mixed, oily skin if you powder it but I do not think it is the perfect foundation for the dry skin despite its name “nourishing”. And for good reason, the prolongwear marks my area of dryness at the level of the wings of the nose.
Waterproof side, I cannot pronounce because personally, I do not take my shower with foundation, the same for the pool!
The Prolongwear waterproof is truly indisputable! After a whole day, the foundation is still there! It did not migrate, it did not oxidize and did not disappear either! However, for the holding of 24h, I cannot tell you because I have never worn a foundation so long! It does not feel worn which is really nice.
Small flat on the level of my glasses. As usual, a foundation pile just concentrates on this small area of the nose in the day so I always have to check along the way and wipe off excess product.
Overall, the foundation is a good product, but it is not my favorite, sometimes I like it, sometimes it disappoints me …
It is not as covering as advertised and you see my imperfections … Finally I see that the result is so uncertain from one day to the next that I think I am closer to the option: I do not recommend not!The blow of the club to this inconstancy is of course the price! So yes 35 € it is not expensive but you have 5ml less than a classic foundation …

In short, it had everything but I am not in love with the Prolongwear waterproof nourishing. I will not redeem it and for you who read me, I leave you free choice to crack or not because it is true that he still has quite a few strings to his bow!
