REVISITED | MAC Pro LongWear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation Review3:13 AM
My latest MAC foundation is the Pro Longwear Nourishing Foundation courtesy of my friend (thanks, Mira-belles!). The shade is NC30 (for reference, I am NC35) and I didn't know whether it would match me completely.
This baby had favorably good reviews and I must say that this foundation photographs really well. The NC30 shade was a surprise match to my skintone after it sets. I was careful not to apply too much as it would for sure cake on me (this girl has oily skin!). It never sticks to my face like a paint, my face can breathe (I am feeling it!).
It is quite a challenge to blend this if you let it stay for sometime without buffing it right away so ladies, don't tell me that I didn't warn you. The key is to get a tiny amount and blend right away. Then move on to another area and do the same thing. The coverage is medium to full but for undereye, you would need your trusted concealer-friend to do the job.
It is said to be waterproof and expected to stay quite longer but the Manila heat proved to be too much. After 4 hours, the nose was shining like Rudolph's again.

MAC is definitely a staple in my kit. They deliver most of the time. For its price, I don't suggest you skimp. Beauty after all does not come cheap. You gotta break your wallet sometimes:)
