I’ve known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
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

Ah, as Shania Twain put it, “That don’t impress me much” LOL! It doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with the product, but as simple as that, it doesn’t impress me very much. I like it and not love it, if you know what I mean. After trying the MAC Prolong Wear Foundation, I had such high hopes for this one, but it failed to impress me much. Ok, I should stop with the impressing business already! So while I try to change my dirty habits, let’s take a picture break, shall we?


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.

    It is because it has SPF in it. I actually like the SPF because I wear it near my eyes and maybe blemishes…so SPF is a good thing to have in an everyday concealer. Yeah, in photographs, even though I don't have an issue with it, it may not look good. It left a yellow cast for me though.
