MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

 I have major makeup melt.  Getting my makeup through hours let alone th day can be a challenge. I've gotten good at foundation and foundations have gotten better . Bring on one that's longwear & waterproof , it might as well have my name on it.

MAC 's Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof makeup is a new addition to the line. This is a light to  medium buildable coverage foundation. It feels thick coming out of the tube but blends on easily , just needing a little more work than a thin liquid might and feels super light on skin .   You will need concealer if you have spots, acne etc. Skin shows through but minor things are covered.  Then again I like a lot of coverage. You may not. 

The finish is semi matte/satin,  not dewy but not dry or flat. It helped keep oil at bay in my busy T Zone for most of the day. I did a  powder touch up at 5 hours in on my nose/forehead.  The coverage lasted all day. In the evening it still looked good. There was little breakdown  even where the oily areas were. That's so rare for me. 

There are no oil or heavy hydrators , but again it leaves skin feeling good ,not tight or dry.  A CC or TM like MAC's Lightful C is a great base underneath.

 As to waterproof , well I can't say. I wish the pool was open and I could have jumped in but that's a few weeks off yet. 

My only wish for this ? It came in a bigger tube . Shown are shades NC15 & NC20.
