        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

        I haven't bought the bottle of this yet. I intend to, though. Instead, an Ulta employee color matched me and gave me a nice sized sample. I didn't think I'd like it, but it's excellent coverage and doesn't seem to settle into a scar line that I have or my fine lines. My only dislike is that it doesn't melt right in to the skin. You need to use the right primer and work it out with your beauty blender, then let it set, because it's sticky until it dries down. Other than that, I really like this foundation.

            Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

            I purchased this product after having my makeup done at the MAC counter for graduation photos for college. I'm usually an avid lover and user of Face and Body by MAC but I was in the market for a new foundation with more coverage that wouldn't break me out. The MUA applied this foundation and I instantly fell in love! My face looked absolutely flawless and I had the right amount of coverage that I wanted. To make this foundation work for me I use the natural radiance primer by MAC in radiant yellow and then I highlight my cheekbones, nose, forehead, and chin with MAC strobe cream and I find that the combination of these two gives me a radiant, skin-like finish but my foundation still lasts all day without rubbing off or creasing.

                    A:

                    Absolutely, Holly! The lightest shades in MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation are NC15 (fair neutral beige with a yellow undertone) and NW15 (fair neutral beige with a pink undertone). Both of these colour options will suit a pale complexion beautifully.

                    Sounds like you may need to go a touch lighter with your colour, Gerta. We recommend trying NC20 (half a shade lighter) as an alternative. Let us know what you think!

                    Great question, Nic! In MAC, warm tones have a pink undertone, and cool tones are more yellow. NW stands for neutral warm, which is a beige with rosy/pink undertone, and NC stands for neutral cool, which is a beige with yellow/golden undertone.
