Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

It looks great in the morning but by afternoon I'm a grease ball. Even with really good setting spray, nope, doesn't cut it.
I've got oily skin. It would probably be great for someone without the oil issue.

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

        I love this foundation, it goes on smooth and easily hides the imperfections. I've been using it for over a month and I haven't had any issues with extra breakouts although I have sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin. It doesn't feel heavy and although I don't look picture perfect at the end of a 12 hour workday, it holds up better than any other foundation I've tried.

        I tried this product in store and had an associate put it on me. I liked the way it looked and felt on my skin at the time. After using it at home, I definitely don't care for it. I have combo skin and was told this would be a great product for me. It gets cakey, rubs off very easily, and creases very easily in eye area.

          Best Uses

          • Full Coverage

          Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

          I have used BareMinerals for years and wanted to try something new. I need a little more coverage most of the time as my skin has some redness, unevenness and occasional blemishes. I also tend to have dry skin, especially in Winter. I was surprised when I was colormatched a much lighter color than I normally buy but it worked for me.

          The good things about this foundation is the coverage! I didn't have to use concealer at all - it covered up stuff that BM or anything else I've tried couldn't. It also lasts a loooong time with only minimal fading.

          The bad things are that, if you have dry skin, it REALLY stands out. It clings to the dryness. To be fair, the Ulta rep warned me of this when she was promoting it (but it was Summer and I was more concerned about it lasting through my wedding and photos!). It also has a bit of a heavy feel, feels like you're painting your face when you put it on....but it's not bad enough to feel gross all day. I'm interested to try the regular MAC foundation to see if I have a different experience.

          Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation:

          I dont know where to start. I have VERY dry skin. I mean so dry that i have to wear my night cream and oils on top of it so that my face doesnt sting from dryness. This foundation feels very oily even to me and it will cause me to get bad breakouts if i dont use it in about a week then after a few days it goes away. On me i felt that it looked beautiful and flawless when first applied but settled more than any foundation ive tried before. Because of this i mix a drop with revlon foundation for dry skin and i feel that it kind of helps. When it comes to its longevity well let me just say that i went on vacation and was wearing a FULL face of makeup when i went in the pool and my sister was amazed at how flawless my makeup looked (which should tell you how much oils it must have to repel the water!) I overall really liked it but i think its too heavy for every day wear.

          Liked it in store because it matched so easy and I was told the coverage was buildable... how ever I have combination skin and as soon as I took off my foundation it turned my whole face dry and my skin flaked! I gave it another chance and noticed the same thing plus it didn't last not even for two hours. Very disappointed only pro is it feels like nothing's on which would be the case very soon since it rubs off so easy.

              A:

              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!

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              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.
