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 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!

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.

I love this makeup!!
vallygirl76 from Porterville, CA
I was soooo beyond excited to try this. Lovely rep txd me helping to color match. I went with a shade lighter as I haven't got full on summer color yet. But it was a PERFECT MATCH! HOWEVER, the shine was no joke on forehead & in between brows(lifetime struggle). I did wear alone at 1st(primer of course) & the positive of this is it passed the white tissue test like WOW! Didn't move, clump, slide around, separate but strangely, it did stay put! Definitely transfer proof! Just the oily T was bad, darn. I mixed with UD(not good) mixed with Este lauder (worked kind of ok) mixed w/stilla(worked out better than rest). Switched primers in between & went from blender to brush. Brush mixed w/stilla & too faced primer worked the best for me. Won't re purchase but will continue to mix'er up & see how it goes with other foundations & primers i have.. we'll shall see.

The original pro longwear has been my ride or die for as long as I can remember. After it was discontinued I purchased this hoping it would somewhat compare and it definitely did not. It's chalky and has very minimal coverage. It just adds a semi transparent clay like layer to the face, it does not cover redness or blemishes. I find that it moves around a few hours into my day causing me to look greasy and cakey. I have tried studio fix as well and it just does not do it for me, I'm going to have to resort to another brand now and I am so so so sad. There has never been anything that compared to Pro Longwear. They made a huge mistake when they discontinued it.
was not impressed

As someone who works outdoors for a living i was excited to try this hoping it would be better than what I currently use, but i feel like this is worse if at all possible. It slides right off your face with very little sweat and or water.
My summer HG!
Mar from Wisconsin
This is my summer foundation. I get oily in the summer with the extra humidity and this foundation goes on smoothly. I use Australian Gold tinted SPF 50 sunscreen underneath. The combo is superb! I see a lot of negative reviews, and perhaps their skin isn't prepped well for such a unique formula. I moisturize then lightly powder, apply Skindinavia bridal setting spray, let dry then apply the foundation. I still lightly powder after it sets because I'm just super oily. I do not have to blot my nose for at least 6 hours. I do wish the packaging were different AND a full 1 ounce
BRING BACK THE OG PRO LONGWEAR FOUNDATION PLEASE!!!!!
Betsy from Grand Prairie, Texas
I am very disappointed and very sad that they have discontinued the old formula for the pro longwear foundation. This was my all time favorite and holy grail foundation on top of any other foundation brand out there, and now I am still in search for a new one that compares to the old OG and I can't find one. This has been a very difficult journey for me since you guys discontinued the OG pro longwear. I'm hurt to know that you guys did this and didn't at least replace it with another foundation for oily skin like mines.
I beg you please, consider all these loyal customers comments that have been purchasing with MAC for years. Listen to what people want and need and please bring the old MAC pro longwear back and trust me your business will keep growing even more. Thank you and God Bless you all!

Absolutely love this foundation. This shade works for my cheek contouring, and a slight brush on my forehead and chin. It makes my skin look healthy and the texture is natural looking.
Steph from Wisconsin
I wore this on my wedding day & didn't realize it was waterproof. I went waterskiing on my wedding day and was a bit nervous about my makeup running. My skin was flawless afterwards & lasted until I took it off 10 hours later!
Light weight feel with great coverage
Nan from West hills
Wasn't sure if this was going to cover my uneven skin tones without feeling cakey but I was proved wrong! It's absolutely the best foundation I've ever tried! So lightweight and covers completely. My color selection was spot on too thanks to the color palette. Love it!
Baba L from Forest Hill Hill, MD
I've been using this foundation since it came out and I love it because it holds up well through the day and makes my skin look great! Although it says it's waterproof, I would say says it's water resistant because it doesn't come off with plain water but it washes off with a mild cleanser, you don't need a waterproof make-up remover. I think the shades go on slightly lighter than MAC's other foundations and I use various shades throughout the year.
My Holy Grail

No matter what new foundation comes out that I try I always come back to this foundation. Love the finish on my skin and the longevity of the wear.
Dg from HTX
I used the original prolongwear foundation for years and I am still struggling to find a replacement. This product did not even come close! Feels like colored clay on my face and the tube like container makes for a waste of product! Please bring back the original prolongwear. And stop recommending studio fix because it does NOT compare. I fear my MAC days are over.
Woman from St Louis
My favorite. Please MAC don't discontinue!
Flippy Chippy from San Antonio, Texas
This is my favorite foundation. I have hyperpigmentation, dryer skin and hormonal acne. The coverage is great! It doesn't make me breakout. Even if I'm sweating all day. I use pro long wear concealer with it and set it with the skin finish powder and it lasts ALL day and night. It's really waterproof too when set. My skin looks flawless with it. I've gotten a lot of compliments.
Absolutely A Mess.
IndustryKirs from Maryland
ProLongwear was my go to formula at MAC due to my oily skin and need for makeup to stay put for hours a day. This new formula is terrible and a nightmare for oily skin. Within 2 hrs it is slipping and sliding off of my skin and creasing. It looks terrible. For the amount of money spent on this foundation it makes no sense fora product to be this bad. If I could return it I would. Please bring back the original formula.
great for performance/stage makeup
mlucas22 from charlotte, nc
I do color guard and i've worn this foundation for the last two seasons! It's super long wearing on me, even if my eye makeup fades off, my skin still looks good. I have normal to dry skin with tons of freckles and some redness, and this foundation covers about 80% of that (the rest i can cover up with concealer or powder). I've worn this foundation on 16 hour days, and i've never had an issue with it!!

This Mac makeup was too light for me even though it was my color ? I had to return it. It made me look like a ghost
Lex from AZ
Very disappointed in the fact that the original pro longwear foundation is discontinued, I have been using it for years, and now I have to switch to another makeup brand because this formula does NOT COME CLOSE. Not only is it 5ml less than the original, the cost remained the same, but the quality was not there. Don't waste your money! And NO, Studio Fix is not even a close second, that foundation is cakey. It's unfortunate but would gladly come back if the OG is brought back. There is plenty of room for both of them to coexist. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OG PRO LONGWEAR MAC!
