The name kind of through me off when I first seen it at MAC. But the lady there told me that although it is nourishing, it is good for oily skin. She applied it with the color NC50 on my skin and I was like yasssss! She also put the new pro longwear pressed powder on top with the color Dark plus and I was sold! I had to stop playing and get them both! But I also feel like they could've added the extra 15 oz considering that it retails for 32 dollars. This foundation is very buildable. It is really good for oily skin like myself. And it stays on until you need to take it off! It's worth it
Most Helpful Critical Review I'm on the fence
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.

I have been a loyal customer of Mac products for many years. The coverage this product provides is outstanding. I have acne scars and under eye discoloration and it blends beautifully without feeling over made. It holds up fabulously for me in water exercise, which is so important to me for my self esteem. Additionally, a little product goes a long way. Excellent value because it works so well. I apply by doting with my finger tips, then blend with a sponge. Unfortunately, because I'm in my mid 50's, I have to be extra careful when applying near my eyes, as if I apply too much it adheres to the creases. I combat that by using a good quality eye cream and diligence in application. I feel the benefits of the foundation far exceeds that issue for me.
Absolutely love the coverage of this foundation

1 of the best full coverage foundations I've ever purchased
Claire from Ireland
This foundation was recommended to me as a fully overage alternative to the water weight foundation,and I am so disappointed. I have dryer skin and I like a lighter feeling foundation with a dewy finish, this feels horrible and tight on the skin and sets in visible clumps. I loved the mineralize foundation and used it for years - please bring this back!!
Best Foundation Ever!!
DB from Nashville Tennessee
I made several trips to the store to end up with the right shade... each time the artists were so patient with me and WOW...I tried this from seeing it featured on YouTube Dominique Sasche....this is THE BEST foundation I've ever used!!!! I love MAC anyway but this is the first time for foundation and it's just perfect!!!
I would not buy this online again

Color chart not accurate
The worst foundation I ever spent money on!
Sharon from New York
Don't spend your money! The worst foundation I have ever purchased.
Bring back the old formula!
Kate from PA
Bring back the old formula! Why fix something that isn't broken? This looked awful on my skin. Your old formula was the only foundation that I liked. I can't find a good replacement.
Bring back the old formula
Andrea from NY
Please please please bring back the old formula. Neither this nor studio fix even compare.
Worker B from Austin Tx
I bought this product because it said long wear & non- transferable... it rubs off on everything. Super disappointed:/
Horrible..PLEASE PLEASE bring back the original Pro Longwear
Brianna from Nashville, TN
I really tried to like this and every other foundation at MAC to replace the original Pro Longwear. I've only used MAC foundations and concealers for about 15 years and sadly I think the run has come to an end with all the changes and discontinued products. Literally all my HG concealers and foundation has been taken away. While I can handle a replacement concealer.. I really need some consistency with a tried and true foundation. What I loved about the original is that you could use less product and end up with a very low coverage natural look that lasted or you could build coverage for a full glam look that still didn't look cakey and lasted forever. I was constantly complimented on my makeup and always asked what I used by strangers. Since the product was discontinued I have tried studio fix, water weight, watchmaster, tinted moisturizer, and the new pro longwear. The closest I got to what I needed is probably studio fix which still fell horribly flat. I am now in the process of trying out other high end foundation brands and sadly can no longer be a MAC advocate. I will probably now be buying 2 new foundations from competitor brands to achieve what I was able to get with a single foundation in the original pro longwear formula (natural everyday look and full glam). Please please bring this back and never discontinue again!!!!
Just not for me

Used paired with a MAC primer and set with Tarte Shape Tape powder and Urban Decay setting spray
Color swatches don't match!
Julie from KY
The image of what the color looks like close up looks absolutely nothing like the color for this shade. NW20 is supposed to be golden and rosy toned for light to medium skin tones. It is even paler than my tube of N18! The close up on this site looks closer to NC25, which is what I was going for but lighter. I can't use this at all.
Mary from Chicago
I was a huge fan of the old ProlongWear and didn't realize that I was purchasing a completely different product until I put the foundation on my face. It looked like a face mask. Blends VERY poorly. Not moisturizing at all. It does stay on well, like epoxy! After ten years, I will be switching brands. SO disappointing.
My favorite foundation!
Kara from Dallas, TX
I've used this foundation for years and it's still my favorite! I apply it with the Tarte foundation brush and it goes on perfectly! Lasts all day and stays on even during a workout!
Seems to be good coverage but it's lighter that the "sample"
Chris from Michigan
Will try another shade

Not waterproof, literally wipes off on your hand if you touch your face, gets all over sunglasses, etc. It actually comes off easier than any foundation I have, which aren't waterproof.
BEST LONG WEAR FOUNDATION from Los Angeles, CA
I am surprised to see so many negative comments about this product that I had to put in my two cents. I absolutely love this product. For reference, I have somewhat oily skin, I have fine lines and discolorations on my face, and I always use primer. I love this formula because it covers almost all the uneven skin tone and does not settle into my fine lines. Also, it does not oxidize at all staying always true to color. And it does last. I work 12 hour shifts as a nurse, so in a course of those 12 hours I sweat, I eat, I nap on my 30 minute break. And I only need to retouch with some translucent powder or blot my face with blotting papers. I love this product. And I have tried many, as I am very very fond of foundation. Between my Smashbox, Stila and MAC- MAC is the best.
Go with Colourpop
Mollee from Chicago
it was way cakier that I intended and did not make my face look good at all. I have very clear nice skin and it made me look like I had huge pores. Might use as some sort of concealer from now on.
Jewels from Los Angeles
I like this, a little bit goes a long way. I have more drier/combo oily T-zone skin so I moisturized, primed, and added the MAC Body & Face to my routine. I put all this on before I added this foundation. My face tends to feel drier and this is a matte foundation. I wore it all day and I was pleasantly surprised,I liked it more than the Studio Fix Foundation. It was not as heavy, but again I put like a little more than a pea size and it was fine with a sponge. I did set it with LM powder and used Fix plus setting spray. I purposefully rubbed my face on the inside of my shirt after a few hours just to see if it transfers and nothing. This stuff has staying power!I put my hand to my face and nothing. I do like the way I have a slight glow,just my cheeks, which I like. If I was going to a wedding, this would be the foundation I would wear for sure. MAC is my first foundation that does not transfer. For reference, I am not a Matte person, I have NARS Radiant, Too Faced, and I did wear Lancome. I dropped Lancome and now have added MAC foundation instead and I am glad I did. Don't get me wrong Lancome is good, but my skin has a slight reaction to it, like a little stinging, just slightly. Anyway,I have ignored it for a year and now since COVID-19, I have been looking at my skin products and everything and here I am, all MAC'd OUT!! Lol
I would buy this over and over. Smaller tube, but covers up!
Amy Marie from Chino Ca
I use quite a bit as I have really red patches of skin. This blends my face to be one color. Makes my red disappear. And I'm not one to write reviews. Shake the bottle so you don't get watery stuff
BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL
Srra B from Baltimore, MD
I purchased this product because of it being waterproof. It's horrible, does not compare to the original Pro Longwear. Please Mac bring the original back for your committed customers.
Love this product
Davina from Chicago
After applying your choice of primer this foundation blends in perfectly great match to skin and feels product free.
go to foundation !
jojo from California
i have really dry skin & i use this with the MAC primer & it leaves a beautiful luminous finish < 3 the foundation looks natural & has a natural shine, people often ask me how my skin looks so good, it hides all my imperfections perfectly & it doesn't feel heavy. it stays on nicely for long hours & always stays luminous. after two years of struggling to find a perfect foundation i finally found one for my extremely dry skin !! it makes me so confident
Trese from Midwest, USA
I am pleasantly surprised. I do nit usually like liquid foundation. I like MAC liquid foundations. The Pro Long wear provides good coverage with a natural finish.
Gives long wear
Kissy from North Carolina
I work as a merchandiser and have need a product to last through sweat and hard work. This seems to last longer than other foundations. My only negative is it's kind of expensive and the colors I ordered were too light for me. I have to bronze up a little to make it work. Hopefully I'll have the opportunity to try again for the right shade.
