But you’ve got being right down to an art
You think you’re a genius-you drive me up the wall
You’re a regular original, a know-it-all
Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else
First of all, is the color ok? The MAC SA suggested I try NC 35 in foundation and NW 30 in concealer for the winter. I usually wear NC 40 in foundation and NC 42 in concealer. The NC 42 concealer left a yellow-ish cast. But considering how dark my dark circles are, I need something which is a little more opaque and full in terms of coverage. That’s where I don’t like this concealer. My dark circles are peeking through, aren’t they? Besides that, I have another issue; the packaging! The little pumps should be banned, period! They waste out so much product, so not cool!
The good news, (yes, there is good news!) however is, that it will stay put for a long time. Once you put it on, it stays, even if you rub your eyes. I first put it on at 9:30 AM and my make-up remained the same till I was ready to go to bed at 10:30 PM. So, yes, it does live up to its Longwear name.
The Verdict? It is a nice concealer to have if you need something that lasts long, and that’s your sole criteria for a concealer. You should, however, be able to deal with minor quirks such as the annoying little pump which wastes a lot of product. It is also a bit sheer for my dark circles, which demand a little more coverage. No repurchase for me, but I can see it fitting the bill for many of you.
