MAC Pro Longwear Concealer | Review | Is It Worth the Hype?

Hi Beauty Lovers!

Today's post is on a product that I've been using for a long time now, but never got round to doing a review, as you've guessed from the title its on MAC Cosmetics infamous Pro Longwear Concealer. If you watch any YouTube Guru you've heard this concealer mention a million and one times. Everyone and their mum has this concealer it's a cult classic, but is it really worth the hype it gets?
The Pro Longwear concealer comes in a wide variety of shades in the typical NC and NW choices, I myself have NW 15. It comes in a small glass bottle with a pump applicator, which on good days I love because its hygenic,  and 99% of the time you can control the amount of product dispensed - however on bad days I fall into the 1% of the time and pump out way too much! When I originally saw it my first reaction was 'is that it?' because it really is that small of a bottle, but after using it for around four months I am yet to make a dent in the product.

The formula is medium thickness, creamy and easily blendable. A small amount goes a hell of a long way, I typically use half a pea sized amount to conceal around my nose and under eyes. It does require setting, this isn't a concealer you can apply in a rush. You can use this as an eyeshadow base but I find you need to take some of the tackiness away with a quick sweep of a flesh toned eyeshadow or your first eye shadow will cling and not blend easily.

For me this product is worth the hype, its become a firm favourite in my morning routine. Now for the price £17, but come on it''s MAC so you know already know what I'm going to say, your going to pay more than you typical drug store concealer but for me its worth it.

Have you tried this concealer? What are you thoughts?
