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.

My HolyGrial Foundation

  • Good Pigmentation
  • Long-Lasting

Cons

  • Oxidizes

Best Uses

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.

Broke me out

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Easy To Apply
  • Matte Finish

Cons

  • Causes Breakouts
  • Heavy
  • Pricey / Poor Value

Best Uses

  • Full Coverage

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.

This foundation is EVERYTHING!!!

By amariesco

from Indiana

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!

    I got this several times from Dillard's. I wear it in the summertime at the beach/lake or when I'm sweating a lot. It stays on! It's about medium coverage. Good stuff.

    love this stuff

    Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

    this foundation is amazing! make sure to use a sponge when applying. a brush can look too heavy but a sponge will still be full coverage while not looking cakey.

    Horrible

    By Bambi77

    from Spring tx

    Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

    I hate this make up. I wore it to a wedding because it said water proof and sweat proof .. long wear. I touched my face and make up slid off. I took off make up, primed face and tried again. But as I sat at the wedding at the beach. Make up caked up and slid off in places. My face looked horrible. Worst make up ever. Wondering if I can return it.

    Must Have

    Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

    I was unsure about this product so I asked the MAC experts online. According to my bridesmaids that I did a makeup on, it is industrial strength where it stayed on all day all night!!!
