Mac Pro Longwear Concealer

I wanted to try out a high end concealer as I have some pretty bad acne scarring on my cheeks. Although I found some drugstore concealers that do a decent job, I wanted to try out something a little more expensive and high grade to see if I would notice any difference in my skin. This was my first purchase from MAC, and I was color matched to NW20!

The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer comes in a little glass tube and has a pump dispenser. The product itself has a very thick consistency, so a little goes a very long way. One pump is way too much for me, so I always go for half a pump and use a flat concealer brush from Real Techniques to apply it (if you are interested in purchasing Real Techniques brushes, check out my blog post here to get an awesome discount at checkout on and a flat $4 international shipping rate!). The concealer does a pretty good job at covering up my acne scarring and dark circles under my eyes. The sales associate suggested that I try the cream version of this concealer, but I am accustomed to liquid concealer so that is what I ended up purchasing. I think I will try the cream concealer next, maybe it will work even better on me!

I think that when it comes to makeup products that go directly on your skin (like foundation, concealers, etc.) it might be better to go high end as you know that the products contain quality ingredients that are less likely to cause your skin any allergic reaction or breakout. I am just venturing into the high end market and look forward to discovering great products. Nonetheless, I think I will always be a "drugstore girl" at heart, I love me some good makeup deals haha! ;)

Do you notice a difference in your skin when you use brands such as MAC compared to drugstore makeup products? What high end foundation would you recommend? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. This concealer sounds great. I have scars from Acne too I think I will check this out.

  2. This concealer so so amazing! <3 It's like it moisturizes while covering! Loveeee!
    That's so true about the better ingredients in higher end products! When I use my Dior Nude Skin Foundation my skin looks really healthy even when I take it off at the end of the day~ :) Awesome review!!

  3. this sounds like a great buy, i have scarring from acne and its always the thing i dont skip on in my routine, may have to try this :D

  4. I love this concealer! However, I don't notice any different in some products. Actually, I've tried some drugstore products that exceed my expectations compared to higher end brands. I followed you via GFC :)

  5. For the most part, I'm a drugstore person but after not being satisfied with most drugstore concealers, I broke down and tried this and I'm so glad I did. This is definitely a new Holy Grail product (especially for undereye). I'm also in NW20.

  6. Thanks for sharing this review this works really grt i love it
