MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

I have always been a massive fan of MAC Select Foundation. It was one of the first high end foundations I bought when I was younger and its a staple in my makeup collection. I've always been a bit of a Select snob and not wanting to try any other of MAC's foundation offerings as I loved it so much.
Recently however MAC's newest foundation Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof caught my eye for two reasons initially. The first being that its waterproof and the second that it comes in a sqeeezy tube/bottle. I'm off to Glastonbury this week so it sounded like a handy one to bring with me.
In all honesty I didn't expect to like it so much, I swatched it on my hand and thought it would be a little too gel like for my liking but after applying it to my face I can safely say I absolutely love it.

Its very different too Select foundation, its much thicker and gel like, similar to studio sculpt but the coverage and finish is beautiful and very long-lasting. The I'm looking forward to seeing how it copes during the festival (I'll report back). I'd say the foundation is a medium to high coverage but could easilly be applied lightly with fingers or a stippling brush for a lighter finish.
I usually wear an NW15 but this is an NW20 and is a great shade for me as sometimes in the summer I like to go a teeny bit darker.

MAC Senior Artist Cher Webb describes it as;
‘M·A·C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation is a new staple product for my kit and also my makeup bag! This foundation will resist tears, sweat, rain, water and repel any liquid that touches your perfect complexion. 
This formula is perfect for those who feel they need additional extended wear from their foundation and also prefer a no fuss and no need for touch up quality! This innovative base is designed to be a foundation/concealer hybrid so be sparing with your application. I love the way you can adapt the finish and coverage to suit your complexion daily by using brushes, fingertips and adding a serum for a lighter finish! Apply this foundation with a firm brush like M·A·C  #130 or a slightly damp beauty sponge, starting with a light veil from the centre of the face and then building up if needed. Try using a smaller brush to hide any blemishes like the #193 from M·A·C.’ 
This foundation will create a seamless finish to your skin and will stay put whatever the weather!"
You can buy Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof foundation (£25.50 25ml) on the MAC website and at most UK counters now.
