Haul/Review; MAC ProLongwear Concealer

Hello Girls!!

If you follow me on twitter you would know yesterday I bought MAC's ProLongwear Concealer in NW15. While I was browsing in MAC the make up artist, called Annabel, asked if she could do my makeup so I said why not, she used loads of products including;

Oil Control Lotion,
Prep and Prime Skin  
Match Master Foundation, 
ProLongwear Concealer, 
Full Of Joy Blush, 
Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, 
Hey Sailor ProLongwear Bronzing Powder in Nude on Board, 
Crew Highlight Powder, 
Lip Pencil in Magenta 
and lastly Pink Nouveau lipstick.

When I went in I had just been soaked in the rain so I was pleased to get some makeup on my face since mine was all washed off. Plus, to be honest I was the only person in the shop so I think she was a little bored. 

Anyway when she put the concealer on I loved it! It has such good coverage I was socked, more than my foundation! So since I'm currently suffering of a nasty acne outbreak on my chin and jaw line, and going to my Uncles wedding -which was today!!!- I thought I would pick it up.

MAC describes the concealer as " A lightweight fluid concealer that provides medium to full coverage with a comfortable, natural matte finish. Colour-true formula lasts up to 15 hours. Helps conceal and correct the look of under-eye circles, and discolorations. Comes in a clear glass vial with a matte black pump."

Like MAC says the product comes in a glass container with a pump just like the ProLongwear foundation but on a much smaller scale. However the pump is so bad! I've used this concealer twice now, and both times I have had tones of product left which you cant put back into the tube. So annoying. Using it on a day-by-day basis I know I will find it a constant frustration. 

 Nevertheless, the concealer itself is amazing! The texture is fairly liquid but it has a soft, creamy feel. It sets quickly but is still very blendable. The coverage is so much better than any other concealer I have used, it is so pigmented it covers under-eye circles, redness and spots in one coat. So far this concealer hasn't oxidized on me which I was so worried about! 

And for once, this colour matches my pale skin perfectly! I don't know if it is lighter than my Studio Fix foundation, but by god it is wonderful!

I think I have found my Holy Grail concealer.
