It is such a joy when you find “THE ONE,” isn’t it? Be it a life partner or simply just a cosmetic.
M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation gave me such feeling. The ultimate one. The holy grail!
Hands down, one of the best foundations I have ever used. It gives me the exact kind of matte finish I’ve been looking for. The foundation is very creamy, and it works best with a beauty blender, in my opinion.
As the product description claims to be, it is definitely waterproof. I have a normal skin type, neither too oily nor too dry. Since I don’t really require high coverage, I apply only a few drops per usage. So, it makes up for the fact that this foundation is only 25 ml, rather than the usual 30ml.
Compared to other high-end beauty products, this foundation is actually very good, considering its price. The plastic tube is awesome – it is easy to squeeze and is not messy either.
It does not oxidize for a long time and keeps my skin fresh for a long time too. Even when I swim, my skin stays flawless. Amazing, right?
I think everyone should use this foundation once and see if it works. I would recommend this to anyone who has a similar skin type.

Not for dry skin
I have mixed feelings about this M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation. I usually have a great experience with M.A.C products, so I had a lot of expectations from this one. I have dry skin and I also have a few visible scars on my face.
With the right weather and primer, it makes my skin look smooth and flawless. It would be amazing if that were always the case. But, on any normal day, if I use the foundation without applying a moisturizer and a primer, my skin looks patchy, and it settles on my fine lines.
So, the foundation is somewhere between impressive and mediocre. It all depends on the other products I pair it with.

Value for money
Sets too quickly
I’m so glad I bought this Pro Longwear Foundation. As a student, I wear makeup on a daily basis, and I need the kind that will last me for at least 8 hours. So, this foundation is perfect for me. Although I would categorize myself as having a normal skin type, my skin leans toward the oily type, but only slightly.
It is easy to apply or blend and has decent coverage. It mostly fits the product description – it repels moisture and lasts long. Unlike most of the other M.A.C. products, the plastic tube is easy to carry around. I would repurchase this product.

Soft, matte finish
Not for dry skin
M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation is a great product. There are several reasons why I have to be picky while choosing a foundation. I have a pinkish scar on my chin, so I always look for a foundation with good coverage.
I live in a humid area. And I’m really glad that I decided to get this Pro Longwear foundation. It suits all my needs and purposes. I don’t have anything negative to say about it, but I guess it is not suitable for all skin types. It works differently on my best friend who has very dry skin, and not in a good way.
This foundation covers up my scar really well, but I have to build up the coverage quite a bit. It quickly dries off, so I also have to be quick at blending. Overall, I love this product and would recommend it to people with oily or normal skin type.
