Review for: MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Water Proof Foundation more...
I’ve tried all of the MAC foundations and this one is by far my favorite. It goes on medium coverage and you have to work it a bit to build it up to full, but the staying power is a big payoff and makes building it up totally worth it. I have a very oily T zone, but when I use this with the Becca ever Matte primer and Laura Mercier translucent setting powder, I have minimal touch ups throughout the day. I’ve even slept in this foundation (I know I know, a huge no-no), and it still looked great the next day. It also doesn’t grab onto the dry patches on my skin like some medium-full foundations do. This has definitely made it to be one of my go-to foundations and i will for sure be purchasing again!!

My review is for the shade nw15 and it wasn't a listed option. My fair skin doesn't always match up just right to shades offered sometimes falling between the lightest and 2nd lightest without either looking good. I matched perfectly to this foundation when I was shopping for a new brand about 6 months ago. I work in a local restaurant that is non stop most of the time and I need my foundation to do it's job. I need full coverage flawless look that will really last 10 to 12 hrs at work. This foundation was love at first wear. It gives me a full coverage beautiful, smooth look without feeling weighted or caked on. I use a foundation brush and it takes such a small amount of product to create this look too. It lasts and lasts and I had to switch to a stronger makeup remover but I was glad to do so. This is the only foundation that gives me true long wear factor and doesn't come off on a tissue or napkin either. It keeps your face looking smooth and fresh til the very end. I don't know why this doesn't get more rave reviews except that if you really didn't need it to last thru circumstances like mine, it might be too much for less. But if you find yourself wanting this kind of coverage that seems to last through most extremes then I'd switch to this one in a snap. And at 35 dollars for a bottle that lasts a long time, it's a reasonable price for it as well.

MY HOLY GRAIL! I looooove this foundation. It’s beautiful satin finish is everything. It’s full coverage, a little goes a LONG way. I was offered a sample before I even bought it and I was in love instantly and immediately bought it the next day. I thought it was going to last me two days because the tube is pretty small for the price but in this case it’s not about quantity it’s about quality and that’s why it lasts so long. It doesn’t make me break out (I was pretty scared about that given the fact that I have super sensitive skin) but if anything it’s been the greatest foundation for my skin. It is my absolute favorite foundation and I swear on it left and right. I get so many compliments on the daily basis on it and I recommend it to everyone looking for a flawless looking, high coverage foundation. *FYI it does oxidize so go for one shade lighter.

I love this foundation! I use the NW25 as my foundation, and NW20 as my highlighter under my eyes, and on my forehead/nose. I use them both for show make up and they last me through 2 shows a night through sweat. It is in the heavy side, but it’s great to create a long lasting flawless face. I wouldn’t wear this for every day use, I like something lighter but I do use it if I’m going out for the night. I set the foundation with MAC Set Powder.

This foundation is a little thick but if you blend it out enough you can make it look like it's just your natural skin. I have super oily skin and even though it's a little heavier it never made me look greasy. It covers spots really well, I never had to use a concealer with it. I've rebought this three times, but it lasts super long as a little bit goes a long way. Also, it's perfect for vacation or humid weather because it's water proof.

❤️👏🔥
Stop what your doing and go get you some of this girl.
This product was like heaven sent to my face. I have oily yet dry skin, with some lovely huge pores that just love welcoming in all the crud. I used an ulta primer (pore minimizer) but wish I would have used something different. Other then that the wear of this Mac foundation and unbelievable! It is medium to full coverage. A little goes a long way.
Happy shopping ladies.

I'm super pale with no undertones and this is the ONLY brand and product that comes in my shade, so there was a lot of pressure surrounding the purchase. It is on the higher end side for the size but a small amount of the product gets the job done. It goes on well and covers like it says. It stays on all day and still looks fresh. Comes off easy with a wipe or cleaner. Overall a wonderful product and will be buying this again.

Review for: MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Water Proof Foundation more...
I wanted to love this foundation but unfortunately it just didn't work out for me. The color options are great and the coverage is good (that's why it gets 3 stars) but it just made my pores look so awful even with a primer. It also felt heavier than what I am normally used to with a medium to full coverage foundation. If you have pores and don't want them accentuated, think about selecting a different option.

Review for: NC30 more...
I'm now a believer in all things mac! I always thought it looked cakey on people but I was drawn in by its dewy skin like finish. It is beautiful on the skin! Even the hubby says it looks good and he HATES makeup. He never says he likes any of it! 4 stars because I don't think it's waterproof like the package says. It does smudge off onto my phone. However I will purchase again because the finish is perfect.

Review for: NC30 more...
MAC is one of my all time favorite make up brands but their foundations aren’t for me. I purchased the Pro Long Wear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NC25, it was definitely a perfect match once it oxidized on me. I’m usually an NC30 but the artist at the counter recommended to go with a lighter shade since it oxidized. It did have good coverage but I would call it Medium coverage that can be built up to Full. I have oily skin and even with my favorite matte primer my face would be oily within an hour. I️ usually get oily hours later! I tried different setting powders and primers with it but I would still become an oily mess. Once i started getting oily the foundation would eventually separate and look patchy. I was disappointed 😔 My drugstore revlon color stay foundation lasts longer and gives better coverage.

I really want to try this foundation and was wondering if anyone has used it before? How well would it cover redness and give an overall even skin tone? Also do you need to wear a concealer on top of this?
