Perfect for 8hr Work Days

By Patti

from Puerto Rico

Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

This foundation lasts through my eight-hour, oily, stress-ridden work day. I absolutely love it. The color matches me perfectly and does not oxidize. It does not clog my pores and leaves my face looking healthy and skin-like throughout the day.

I'm on the fence

By CatmCox

from chicago, il

Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

Okay first of all, I found that this foundation applies best with a brush. For some reason with a beauty blender it really thins it out and applies splotchy.
Second of all, it has really good coverage but GOD FORBID you have an itch on your face girl... if you scratch away at this or touch your face AT ALL it will come off, look super messed up and you will not be able to blend it out or apply anything more to fix it. I always get itchy on the creases of my nose and corner of my eyes and jeez..... this foundation does NOT do well in those areas.
Lastly, removing this makeup is really harsh on your skin. I have dry acne skin and honestly it's a nightmare. It does not want to come off. So you better have a good oil based remover.

I like the coverage of this foundation and its good for a summer day that you're gonna be sweating a lot, but it's water proof and I cant even touch my face with it on and honestly that annoys the **** out of me so..... idk. I set it with a powder and it just looks really cakey and dry. I wont buy it again.

Also, it oxidizes so if you do purchase, get one shade lighter.

            Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

            I love that this foundation stays all day no matter the weather. I live in California and it stays without breaking down in the T-zone and getting oily through 100 degree days. It covers my breakouts and leaves my skin soft and smooth. I think I just found my new favorite foundation.

            Best Foundation

            By Bri

            from Raleigh, NC

            Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

            I have searched high and low for a long lasting matte foundation. For me, this is my holy grail foundation! I have combination-oily skin. The creamy, soft consistency makes it easy to blend with a sponge. I can wear this for 14+ hours without it budging. I have also spent time outside with horrible heat and humidity and it still did not slide or melt off. Truly happy with this foundation!

              I'm currently using Studio fix in NC20, I'm noticing that it looks a little orange on me, I'm interested in trying this formula, especially for the summer months, but wonder what shade I should try.

                A:

                Hi Monica! When a foundation or powder turns orange on the skin it's an indication that the shade is too dark. MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NC20 will provide a comparable shade result to Studio Fix Fluid and Studio Fix Powder Foundations. Take a look at NC15, it is the next shade lighter in the same undertones. If you tend to pick up colour during the summer months you may want to stick with NC20 and move to NC15 during fall/winter.

                A:

                MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NC30 is our best guess for a comparable shade, it's a golden olive with golden undertone for light to medium skin. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus is excellent for setting and touching up with and leaves a smooth, satin finish!
