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 was told because of Covid I could not have a sample color. I changed my color because it was not the right color. I still think that I don't have the right color but I am afraid to go again to the store because of Covid.I do like how the product feels on my face. I like how the product looks in the evening after a long day of work.
This is my saving grace!
Dry Skin Queen from Buffalo, NY
I have been searching for a foundation that wont make me look like a 75 year old sundried tomato and boy have I found it! I have very dry skin all over my face and have never been able to find a foundation that doesn't settle into the cracks and flakes. This foundation is absolutely amazing. However, you do need to make sure you are cleansing and moisturizing your face regularly if you have very dry skin. If you put this on without anything else or when your face is visibly dry, its going to look cakey and cracked like the desert. I have been using the Formula 10.0.6 Best Face Forward cleanser and Picture Perfect Day moisturizer. This has been a life saver. My foundation looks completely natural, medium coverage that you can build on, and it doesn't transfer!!
I long for the original prolongwear
Kim from United States
Add me to the list of individuals that would like the original prolongwear to return. I wear goggles at work and it was the only foundation that would last throughout the day - truly miss that formula.
I purchased this multiple times, as I do have dry/normal skin, and it did not hold up as well throughout my day. I wore this on one side and the original on the other and the original held up much better.
Good Coverage w/o looking cakey
Angel from Chester, VA
Good coverage without looking cakey. Dewy finish without looking greasy. Just needed powder over t zone

I so wanted to live thus product since one of my GF's using it (original formula), but unfortunately I don't. I like the perfect color match. I'm am part Chilean part Caucasian and it's difficult to find a neutral foundation that doesn't turn me Oompa Loompa orange, and this product is a perfect match. Also, once applied it is super tacky on my skin. It never dries down and unlike the product notes I feel it needs a light powder. Even with a setting powder my face was tacky all day and it rubbed off on my glasses and phone. I will return and try the waterweight before I stick to my tried and true Bobbi Brown.

I like it so far. It's light weight and blends good
Not long wear
Adrianne from North Carolina
I fell in love with Mac 3 years ago. Their new formulas are horrible. This foundation was buildable coverage so I would say it's full coverage. However within 3 hours it was caked up in areas and broken up. It clings to every dry patch. I don't have this issue with any of my other foundations. It's just not my idea of a good foundation. I will be returning for a refund. Keeping this product would just be a waste of money
dandksmommy from Fair Oaks, CA
Oh, I so wanted to love this foundation, but I can't. I do like it very much because the color match for my 52 yo, normal, neutral, light-Med skin tone with under eye fine lines was perfect. Application was easy for me using a sponge rather than a brush. I like Med coverage and a brush produces full coverage and this is why I like it so very much. However, I can't give it a higher rating because it is sticky with or without setting powder. Also, it did not pass my phone & reading glasses test. Even when set with powder as well as a setting spray, it still rubbed off on my phone and the bridge of my nose. As for the claims you can use it as a under eye concealer, nope for me. I have age appropriate fine lines under my eyes and without a setting powder it sank right in. With LM powder settling was minimal but still noticeable. I will go back to my Laura Gellar concealer and stick with my Bobbi Brown foundation. Kudos for the color match for us olive tone ladies.

Smooth and doesn't cake up
Used this product for awhile
❤️ from Stuart, Florida
I have used this product for awhile after consulting a beauty advisor at Ulta in Fort Lauderdale and she had suggested this foundation for someone with troubled skin. It is great coverage (so much I barely have to use any concealer) and lasts almost all day with great blend and a somewhat lighter feel. It's a perfect date night foundation although if you are looking for a foundation to wear outside or along with an spf this is probably not the best product..I tend to break out a bit more if I wear this product in the sun or sweat with it on. Other than that it is my favorite foundation and have no switched back since I found it.

overall, it does what it should. I have never looked and felt better about my oily, acne prone skin. You would never know it though once this lightweight camo has been applied
Mac Pro long wear
Roonie from Davenport, Ia
I like the Mac Pro Long Wear. Makeup stays on most of the day.
My favorite base ever!

I use it daily and have for quite sometime
Flakey, drying and hard to make work
Katie from Canterbury
I bought this on recommendation of the assistant at ballentynes as a wedding foundation. Unfortunately it's not a good look. It sits badly on the skin after just applying, looks powdery,seperates and just looks terrible even with the smallest about of product.
This is not Pro-Longwear!
SimplySweetness from USA
I noticed a lot of bad reviews came from the discontinuation of MAC Pro Longwear foundation, this is not the same foundation people, stop leaving bad reviews comparing it to the Pro Longwear, this is MAC Pro-Longwear Nourishing Foundation, completely different product. This is better for those with dry skin, whereas Mac Pro Longwear was drying and super heavy!
Cindy Bee from NYC
This foundation really lasts all day, all while leaving a smooth finish and flawless skin. The application is so creamy and perfecting. I wear NC40 in winter, 41/42 in summer.
Please bring back the old formula in the glass bottle
sirisoul from Houston TX
I'm a loyal customer since I was 15years old. So for 25years I have tried most of Mac foundations and other products. I love love the old pro longwear formula, here in Texas and in Florida where is super humid, I'm a mom now, I would take naps with my kids and wake up to my face pretty much the same way I went to sleep with. I love the studio fix powder, but man the studio fix foundation, just doesnt cut it the way the old prolong wear did.
Please please from my sister and me, bring it back, specially those tanned medium tones with olive undertones that dont oxide. This is the main reason I stick with Mac, other brands oxide or dont carry the right shade for us, but so sad prolong wear is gone
Laur737 from WAYNE, PA
Was in a wedding last winter and used this foundation and held all day and night. Since then, have been matched and use this foundation after having moisturized and primed and look and holds great. Wish it came in a bigger tube!
Please bring back prolongwear original
Eyelash from Ireland
This is so far off the original prolongwear. Please bring it back. The texture is awful.
Miss the old formula
Jo from Texas
For many years I used the older formula of Prolongwear that came in the glass pump bottle. It seemed more matte, provided a smoother overall finish. I'm not a fan of this one. I can run my finger across my skin and can tell a noticeable difference in texture. It looks more cakey on my skin than the previous version. I started off with Studio Fix Fluid foundation and then, Prolongwear was released and loved it even more because I could wear it longer before my skin looked oily. This newer formula doesn't do that for me. Hoping they bring the original version back!
Tried and true
Loyalfan57 from Green Bay, Wi
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
sc4911 from Gadsden, Alabama
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!!

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!!!
