I used to swear by MAC Longwear foundation when I was in high school - it was the only full coverage foundation that didn't make my oily skin look even oilier, and it held up like a champ through whatever weather we had/shenanigans I found myself getting into. I got my makeup done professionally for a dance at a MAC counter inside of a Macy's, and I fell in love and never looked back. Now that I'm older and living in a drier climate, I find this foundation to be a bit too drying/cakey looking for my taste, but applied with a light hand and with a moisturizer underneath, I can make it work. Still one of my favorite foundations for a flawless, photo-ready complexion. Highly recommended!

Color: NW20
I love this foundation! I have it in NW15 and in NW 20 and it makes my face flawless.

Pros:
-Very smooth and glides on very easy.
- Doesn't cake like most full coverage foundations
- Stays on all day and don't need to reapply
- Doesn't make me break out
- I use the NW 15 for my concealer because it covers so well
- Has a semi matte dewy finish and is very build-able

Cons:
- I cannot put in near my eyebrows because it seems so cake in my hairs
- I have larger pores so it's hard not to have it set into them but it does a better job then most
- I wish it wasn't so expensive

Overall this is a very good foundation and I will continue to use this for along time

Decided to try out this foundation mainly because I wanted a high end foundation. I went into a local MAC store and was color matched by artist since I wasn't sure which color to choose. The color that the makeup artist matched me with was slightly off. It's always hard for me to find a foundation that fits my skin tone perfectly. I instantly liked the feel and look of this foundation so I purchased it. I wore this for one whole day and it ended up breaking me out. I immediately returned the product.

While this foundation is the matte finish that I want, it magnifies every imperfection on my face. It also makes the dry parts of my face look even drier. I do like that the foundation lasts for a long time and barely transfers. The shade range is decent, but they're all so yellow on me, and I have golden undertones. I like to mix this foundation with more cool toned or lightweight foundations to balance the color or finish out.

Long wear foundation is great for full coverage and long lasting wear. I purchased my product from the MAC store and was professionally color matched. It's a bit pricey but worth it if you are wanting long lasting full coverage. I would recommend this product for those who have trouble areas on their face. I however found it to be thick and too much coverage for my needs

I love the packaging of this product. But it did not work well on my skin. It made me look overly oily and it did not go into my skin, it sat on top like a foundation blanket. I couldn't continue using, so I took it back! I would still love to find another MAC foundation that I liked, but it was difficult finding one that matched my skin tone.

Besides the fact that the price is not fitting for those on a budget, I will say you get what you pay for. This foundation works great and it covered my acne scars and redness very well with little product. It last me a lot longer then most foundations I've tried. The powders work well with them too and my face always looks flawless.

I don't really consider this full coverage. It's a great product though. It is very light, oil free, & covers well. I have really bad acne and I've used better products. I use it if I wanna put on some makeup and go to Walmart. I wouldn't use it if I was going full glam. I would buy again. It's good to have as a back up foundation

I’d give it a shot if you’re able to sample the shade range and find the best match for you. It should be suitable for dry to oily skin, but if you have very dry or flaky/dry patches on your face, you may want to try it first, because of the natural finish which isn’t quite matte but near enough to it may accentuate dryness.
