Ok so I always felt that Mac would be heavy and Cakey looking but boy was I wrong. I have combo leaning more towards oily skin and this lasted all day with no transfer while feeling weightless. It actually took me trying a new foundation for the day then looking in mirror in horror while in car and driving to mall to buy a foundation so I didn’t look like a hot mess. I headed straight to Mac counter and tried bought this. For the first time ever my fiancé actually complimented me on my makeup which is huge!!! Color matching was a little hard as all MUAs were busy but best thing is the price. It so well priced for what is is and how well it works! Perfect match to pro longwear concealer!!! Would def recommend!

As a person who's always on a hunt for newness and looking for full coverage products within other brands. I must say nothing compares to pro longwear. Been using it for many years and there is not enough words to explain how much I love this foundation. It says what it does, full coverage, definitely long lasting as it stays put for a full day (12+ work hours) which Is amazing for someone who has oily skin. (I only have to blot or touch-up once a day but that's usually only during hot summer days) and has a beautiful matte finish. Will forever have this in my makeup bag and recommend for others to try.

The coverage is amazing. It doesn't move around as much as my studio fix foundation. I love that it comes with a pump. I don't know if it's worth the price but it works. I've used it on myself as well as clients. I much prefer using it with a beauty sponge vs a foundation buffing brush so the product doesn't move around too much. I probably will repurchase if need but right now i have so many other foundations that I use along with this. It also mixes well with some of my other foundations so that's a plus.

I have mixed emotions about this, No it's not that it's bad coverage... It's just not the coverage for me. It's just very thick. And I personally have good skin so it's easy for me to put very light coverage on and it just make me look a little more put together. Don't need a super thick coverage. If you have more to cover I think this is a good coverage. But then again I also feel like when I wore it , it would clog my skin because of how thick it was and I would break out after wearing it. It's all based on what you're looking for

Review for: N18 more...
This is one of my favorite Mac foundations. I tend to go for foundations that are going to hold up all day and night- this one does just that! I have an oily t-zone area and this foundation stays put perfectly even in these areas all day long. NC18 is the perfect shade for my pale skin. I love that they make this shade! NC 15 is too light and NC20 looks yellow on me. NC18 is perfection! Highly recommend this foundation!

I’ve used this foundation since I was 18, I’m currently 25 & still use this till this day. I’ve tried other foundations here and there but was never really satisfied with their coverage however MAC foundation has 100% coverage and doesn’t interfere with my oily skin, this foundation normally lasts me half a year before I have to buy a new once since you don’t have to use to much of it when you apply it.

I've tried some foundation from other brands an this is by far the best foundation i've had .i just love how Mac has a super wide range of colors to fulfill every necessity. I have sensitive skin so if i spend several hours with makeup on (like 8 hours for a example) it tends to break me out an this foundation dose not.it feels very light on skin and blends beautifully and also helps if you have oily skin love this foundation alot i would really recommend this to anyone !!!!

I usually use the concealer of this and love it so i tried this one and it worked really good, but for some reason it didnt set on my face as good as tje concealer and i dont really know why, but luckily it was only a sample or it would have probably been going back or gotten sold. The color did suit my skintone which i have trouble finding the right shade in foundations.

This was my very first high end foundation, It had so much coverage like it wasn’t necessary to put on conclear since it had that much coverage but the cons were that i would’ve liked it if it had a pump instead of the type of foundations where you pour it out on your hand b/c a huge con was it was easily to have it spilt everywhere & I wasnt very pleased w/that. either than that i actually enjoyed the product sm🙂
