    Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

    I purchased this in an NW20 after being tested at a MAC store. I usually wear a 3.25 or 3.5 in Urban Decay Naked foundation. My go to full coverage foundation has been Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra 24H Longwear foundation, but after hearing so much hype about MAC, I wanted to check this out. The first time I applied it, I put WAY TOO MUCH on. It was greasy, heavy, cakey, and powder products wouldn't blend. Then I read that with MAC products, the smaller the container, the less you need. This is absolutely true. I put it on the next day, and just used small dots around my face and blended with a sponge. I set it and my concealer with a loose setting powder. It looks so much better and lasted all day. It did wear away a little at the end around my nose and chin, but I applied it at 5am and had it on until 9pm in 90 degree heat and terrible humidity, If you're looking for a light, fuller coverage foundation that lasts, this is great when applied properly.

    Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

    This is the only product that matches my skin tone to a T! I have very very fair skin with red undertones. NW15 is my shade. The coverage can be light, medium or even full coverage because it's buildable. When I first started using this I feel that I broke out but I have very sensitive skin and my face was probably freaking out that I switched products. I have purchased 4 bottles since I first started using it and I don't breakout from it anymore. It leaves a very pretty Dewey finish, looks best when used with a stippling brush.

      Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

      I'm the type of person who doesn't like to do the mid-day touch up on my foundation. I want to be able to put it on in the morning and never have to mess with it for the rest of the day. This foundation does just that for me. I find I get the nicest finish without it looking or feeling too heavy with a damp sponge. It never really dries down on its own, but when set with a powder and setting spray, it's pretty much invincible. I've had issues with my makeup breaking down on my nose (where I get really oily) and on my upper lip (because I tend to glisten when it's hot), but this stuff stays right where I want it to. Even though I'm a foundation junkie and have too many different ones to count, I really think this one will be a keeper.

          Ok so I love love this foundation. It blends well with a makeup sponge but I first tried with an oval brush and it did not blend well. To blend you need to pat all over your face to blend not use circular motions to apply. I figured that out and it is amazing. Sweat proof and holds up well with tears or water. Long lasting.

          Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

          This foundation won't be for everyone. It almost wasn't for me. But I am a convert, and though I don't use this everyday, I will repurchase forever. I have super oily (SUPER OILY) skin. I mean, my skin + humidity will break down anything, and separate it into my pores. This stuff is TRICKY to apply, but once you have figured it out, oh my god. You have to use a very little bit. Too much and it will look and feel heavy, AND it will slide around and off your face. You use a little bit, and work in sections. I'd say use a damp sponge or a flat top and mostly floppy sort of brush (I have a japonesque one that is perfect), and you blend in a million circles using VERY light pressure. Make sure to let it dry down for a few minutes before trying to build it up in that section, too.

          So you might be wondering, why bother with this foundation ever if it is so hard to apply well? Because it is waterproof. That's not a joke, people. I tested this on my birthday (July) in North Carolina. We went to an outdoor animal exhibit. 100 degrees, I was sweating BUCKETS, y'all. I was like well, I'm going to blot my face and wipe off all my makeup. Nope. Nope. Sweat and oil came off...makeup stayed on. Not only stayed on, but looked NICE. Not sure what witchcraft this is, but this is my holy grail foundation when I know it's hot and sweaty outside but I really really need to look put together.

          Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

          I tried so many foundations that would last on my combo/oily skin, even Estee Lauder Double Wear which I do not like at all! I was matched at the MAC store to NC35, which is the perfect shade immediatly out of the tube, but with in seconds it oxidizes before ive even applied it. I litteraly watch it go from my shade to a shade and half darker before my eyes. I use the NYX white foundation mixer to over lighten it and it will then oxidize to my shade. I took off a star because I have to add mixer to get my shade. I recently ordered NC25 in hopes that it would oxidez to my shade and wouldnt you know...it didnt oxidize one bit. So Im going to try to mix my NC25 with NC35 and hope for the best! If I cant get my shade Ill have to keep looking. But I do like this foundation once its on, it goes on smooth, blends nice and leaves a satin finish that lasts all day at work. I do have to blot a tiny bit by 1pm, but I have to with any foundation.

          Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

          This was one of the first high end foundations I tried. I loved the coverage, as I have acne scarring and current breakouts. However, this is the heaviest foundation I have ever tried. You can feel it on your skin, and it cakes easily. I also had severe breakouts after using this foundation. If you have sensitive skin, don't use it. You will break out.

          Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

          I'm so happy I decided to purchase this product. It's so gorgeous on my skin! I am fair with pink undertones and chose NW13. I thought it may be too light, but somehow it blending into my skin like magic. I underwent a surgical procedure today, and came out looking like I had just put it on. Even hours later it's still looks like perfection. I highly recommend this foundation! MAC makeup is worth the hype. It's just pure gorgeousness!
