I know this foundation has been out for a few months already, but it is new to me and I really wanted to share my thoughts with you guys that probably don’t know about it too.
This is the new MAC Pro Longwear waterproof foundation, and as the name suggest is supposed to be both long wear and waterproof. I have been using this foundation non stop for the last weeks and I can say for sure it is a long lasting foundation.
I’ve tried with a primer and without a primer, and I always prefer to use it without a primer on the skin, it does stick to the skin so much better, and for some reason using it with a primer makes it slide of the face easier.
It is a medium to full coverage foundation for sure, it does cover imperfections, hyperpigmentation, discolouration but it feels both light and super comfortable on the skin, it leaves a nice elastic feeling on the skin that you usually don’t have with other long wear foundations. On my skin a would say that without a primer it lasted a good 8-10 solid hours.
I love that the package is so travel friendly, it is a squeeze tube, easy and light to carry around with you and to travel, I love that a little bit of the product is enough to apply to the whole face, but above all, I absolutely love the finish that gives to the skin. It does take a few minutes to settle into the skin, but once it is there and even after you apply a bit of powder on top, it still gives a beautiful healthy sheen to the face and it looks so natural and skin like.
To me, I found the best way to apply this foundation is with a beauty sponge, it leaves a more natural look to the skin, and applies really light. If you do prefer a more coverage to the skin, simply apply with a makeup brush, and you will instantly see a huge difference on how much coverage it does give to the skin.
