Lovely product, bad packaging
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking, dark circles, blemishes, redness
As much as I would LOVE to give this 5 stars, the packaging keeps me from doing so. I bought one of these at the MAC store in June, and had at least 50% of the product left, until, unfortunately, the bottle fell from my bathroom sink and shattered into tiny pieces on the floor. I obviously bought another one because I LOVE the product, however, I purchased another somewhat reluctantly knowing that the new bottle could meet the same fate. Also, as others have said, the pump on the glass tube dispenses far too much of the product and you don't have too much control on how much comes out. If I need a little bit more, I always feel horrible when it pumps out a full pump worth and I don't need to use but one or two dabs. That all being said, I'd love to see this product in a sturdy plastic container with an open spout that would make it so you could return the unused product back to the bottle.
All of the negatives aside, I do love the concealer! It covers up blemishes, dark circles underneath of the eyes, and a little goes such a long way that I sometimes wear it as foundation. It is a little bit hard to remove but if you have a good cleanser it isn't too much of a problem. If the packaging were different, this would easily be a five star product in my opinion. Would recommend for the product, but would advise some caution on where you place the container to avoid shattering.

Best Concealer!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, crease-resistant
I absolutely love this concealer. I have fine lines under my eyes and horrid dark circles and spots under my eyes and in the inner corners of my eyes. I have always had trouble finding a concealer that had a high enough coverage to hide conceal the darkness, but it also being lightweight so that it would not crease. This concealer has the highest pigmentation, and it not only covers everything I can think of, but it's potent. You only need the smallest amount. Using a small amount also helps with the lack of creasing, because it doesn't get cakey and pile up and settle. The only reason I rated this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the packaging. The bottle is made of really delicate glass, and if the work space isn't carpeted, when you drop this, it will crack and break. This happened to me and I was so disappointed because I had just purchased it. As well as the actual bottle, the pump dispenses way too much product. I had read other reviews ragging on the pump, and I thought, "Well why not just pump out less product?" I tried doing so, and all no product comes out when you pump lightly, and a huge amount of product comes out when you put the slightest bit more pressure. So MAC, please fix the packaging of the concealer.

Great concealer
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, concealing undereye circles
I love this concealer, however, I wish there was a way to pump out less product, because it is so opaque, you only need the tiniest amount. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is because of how much product I waste. This concealer won't budge, and really covers up those circles under your eyes. It even works great as an eyeshadow primer! Lovelovelove this

Hello, I am a man who has suffered from a severe case of chicken pox, I have scars all over my arms and I have been very embarrassed to wear short sleeved shirts for years. One day I decided to go to the mall and I came across a mac store, I was terrified to go in the store to ask for help, yet I wondered in and an associate asked if she could help. I showed her my scars and she took me to the side of the store and applied the NW50 prolongwear concealer over them, like magic they were immediately camouflaged, I was actually shocked because it looked too real. I was so excited that I hugged her in the store. I bought the concealer and I went home to look in the mirror as to how it covered my flaws, I am so happy with this product because I feel alive again. My only complaint is that when it dries, it dries at a darker tone than when it was originally applied. I may go a shade lighter with the product to see if dries closer to my natural skin tone. Nonetheless, I am a satisfied male customer.. Thanks MAC This product is the bomb

Please change the packaging!!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing
I would give this product a 5 but the packaging is soooo disappointing! I have stopped buying it simply because it is made of glass and I have broken the last two bottles. Being such thin glass it is easy to knock on a stone benchtop, or if dropped on the floor, there goes your concealer! Very frustrating. Also, if you manage not to break it, the pump usually squeezes out too much product, or if you get to the end, you can't pump all of it out!
The product itself is creamy and gives great coverage, lasts so well, I just wish it was in a plastic bottle please, then I would be buying again!

A Wonderful Product
After years of using numerous makeups, concealers and powders to conceal imperfections and even out skin tone, I finally found MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. I've always taken excellent care of my skin, but a devastating illness sent my life spiraling out of control at one point, causing an awful uneven tone to my face. I began using this product daily to combat the problem. It has worked wonders for me. A;t age 62, I get lovely compliments from younger and older people of both sexes regarding how beautiful my skin is. Most of the time, I'm honest to a fault, so I end up telling folk, it's the makeup; but sometime I don't, LOL. I'm so grateful for this product and never wish to find myself without it. To the chemist, developer, or creator…I could hug your neck. You have allowed me a necessary amount of comfort and confidence as I am without choice in facing the public everyday. Again, thank you so much and thanks MAC for an opportunity to respond. Blessings Phyl

Perfect
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking, under eyes
I've purchased this product 4 times now since it was released and will continue for many years to come. I have dark, dark circles under my eyes, oily skin and a few lines now that I'm in my 40s. I am terribly fussy with concealer and foundation because I need coverage but I'm oily. This concealer is perfect for my skin. Pot, grease/silicone conclealer settle into lines and slip and slide on my skin as the day wears on. Pro long wear does not. It dries down to an amazing skin like finish, lasts all day, doesn't fade, slip or settle into lines. It is a revolutionary product. Trust me, I've tried them all from $100 concealers to drug store. All brands. Many brands have great coverage but the forumulas don't work etc. It's like this product was made for me. :O The coverage is medium and layers well to almost full. I would love full but I doubt I will ever find anything that will be this natural looking in a full coverage. If you have blue circles like me, stick to the NC range, the yellowness will neutralize the blue.

Found the Solution SO BUY THIS!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, under eye circles, blemishes
I'm self conscious of my under eye cirlcles and after getting tired of wasting my $$ on drug store concealers I caved in and bought this. I came across it looking for my wedding makeup & honestly for $17, I donno why I was holding out??!! It lasts ALL DAY, DOES NOT CREASE!, natural lookikng and provides medium coverage that can be built up to full. I was dumbfounded when I was reading that some reviewers were returning/not buying this b/c of the stiff pump. Yes it is stiff and pumps more than what you need so I FOUND THE SOLUTION! I asked the lady at the MAC counter if I could have one of the little containers that they give samples in when I bought it. When I go to use it, I just pump the concealer directly into the little container and use it from there. The rest I don't use just gets stored there. Sometimes I don't pump from the vial for 3 days! No product wasted! So, although I do think MAC should fix the stiff pump issue, this concealer is too great to not buy just b/c of the pump! I hope this tip helps!

BEST CONCEALER EVER
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
i have to say that this is the BEST concealer ever. if there ARE any negative reviews, PLEASE IGNORE THEM. you only need the smallest bit of product and it looks like natural skin. MAC really outdid themself with this formula. the ONLY negative thing that i can say about this is that the pump gives out WAY too much product. but what i did was get an empty sample container and just pump it into there. then i just use the product from there till its empty and do it all over again. this product will last you forever!

Holy Grail Concealer
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, highlighting & concealing
Absolutely the best concealer I have ever used. I use two different colors - one for under my eyes ( does not sink into fine lines or crease) and one to help "spots" on my face or redness around my nose. It would be my hope that I never have to do without this product. Blends perfectly, great consistency, wide array of colors and multi functional - at times I use it only on my face in necessary areas and then no other foundation! Love it!

HOLY GRAIL CONCEALER
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, hyperpigmentation, under eyes, blemishes
I gave this 4/5 stars for the packaging not the product. The pump dispenses too much product and I feel like the bottle wasn't full when I got it.? I got it from a Mac Store so maybe it was returned or something. I don't really know.
Aside from that this is my go-to concealer, I love it! I also learned that it was waterproof which is also a plus!
TIP/TRICK: If you push down lightly and quickly on the pump it will give you half a pump. If you go slowly and try to control the product as it comes out you will end up with a full pump. Been there, done that and wasted a lot of product.

Amazing Product
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, undereye concealer, corrector
I love this product! Goes on so smooth and blends effortlessly. Stays on all day and doesn't crease. I have lines and wrinkles under my eyes and this looks amazing. I have fair skin and I use NC15 as a highlighter as well as a concealer so it is very light. The only con at all is the pump. Unless you push it just right it delivers too much product and I found myself wasting some. After the first week I figured out the pressure correctly and I now get the perfect amount!

HG Concealer!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
Pro Longwear Concealer is my holy grail concealer! This is honestly one of THE BEST concealers that I have ever used! It's a full coverage concealer that blends out so well and set very quickly. With this concealer a little goes a LONG way! It does not look cakey or settle in fine lines. It's the perfect concealer for covering dark spots/circles or just highlighting your face. It lasts a very long time and does not need a setting powder over it. You can blend it very easily with a small blending brush or a beauty blender (or even your finger!). The only thing that I dislike is the packaging. The bottle is glass which can break very easily and the pump is quite tricky to use. You have to press VERY gently on it to get the right amount of product out, if you press to hard A LOT of product will come out and you'll end up wasting it!
Overall I love this concealer, if you haven't tried it yet you need to! This is seriously a must have!

You need not buy another concealer
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
I have this concealer in NC20, it is perfect for medium skin tones, if you like your concealer a bit lighter than your makeup. I wear Mac Pro Longwear in NC25 and the two together are perfect. I have shopped and shopped for a concealer that will stay put and will not pull my mascara and eyeliner below my eyes. This concealer does just that. I do not have to touch up the "raccoon eyes," that we all know and love to hate. This concealer is also perfect for an eye primer and keeps your shadow crease free! I will forever have this in my makeup bag.

love this conealer
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
This concealer is good for highlighting and covering blemishes. I find this to be super creamy, easily blend-able (esp with other products and gives you enough time to work with it), and gives you a flawless, seamless look. I did not find this drying and it did last all day. I also moisturize very well so it did not cake-up on me nor did it emphasize fine lines under my eyes.
This is super pigmented and a little goes a long way. For me, this did hide my dark circles. I did not have to use another concealer on top of this nor did I have to use a full coverage foundation.
I am not too fond of the packaging or the container it comes with. Some prefer pumps but with concealer, I prefer tube. That way, I can control how much product comes out. So go easy on the pump (press gently and slowly and right amount will come out).
I prefer this to select cover (which is good) and studio-finish concealer. I recommend and would buy again.

My New Fav Product!!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
I have the worst scars on my face from when I was younger. When I use any foundation, within a few hours, my scars are showing threw. I learned from a friend that works at a M.A.C. store to apply this as a foundation, with a small powder brush, over a primer. OMG! I could not believe the results.. threw a FULLnight out on the town... you couldn't see any scars.. still looked as great as when the night started!! I also did not break out from this product. A must have for anyone! Also, I do many brides make-up and this is my new favorite product for them.. FYI you can get an airbrush look when applying with the brush!! hope this helps people! muah xoxo

Extremely Drying
I have normal to oily skin and I started using this as a highlight/conceal under my eyes and as a primer on the lids for shadow. Fast forward less than one month and my under-eyes are peeled so badly it looks like I have bags no matter what makeup I have on (I'm only 19), my eyelids are peeling, and no matter what makeup I now use it cakes up horrendously in all the peeling skin this concealer has caused me. My skin around my eyes is now red and raw and tender. Too bad I don't have my box or receipt to return it.

No to the Glass Bottle!
Tags +Natural looking
I love MAC but after buying this concealer for a Christmas gift for myself I only got to enjoy it for 3 days, all because of it's glass bottle. Sure the glass bottle looks beautiful but it breaks so easily. Mine shattered into a bunch of little pieces and I wasn't able to save any of the concealer. I was so disappointed in MAC. This is makeup, it gets accidentally knocked off countertops, put into suitcases, into makeup bags, etc. Having the concealer come in a plastic bottle (like it was before) to me is so much more functional for the average everyday person then a glass bottle that breaks so unbelievably easy! I hope MAC reconsiders the glass bottle because the product itself is amazing but its glass container is NOT!

Good Coverage
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing
I love this concealer. I use it to hide my dark spots and to shade my eyebrows. The only thing that I will gripe about is that for two of my bottles, the pump doesn't always work, even when pressing down hard and rapidly pressing. It takes maybe 20-30 HARD pumps for even a little splatter to come out. This truly irritates me as I have a lot of concealer left in the bottle. I once to literally use a hammer and break the glass to scoop the rest of the concealer out of the bottle. This item is too expensive to not work correctly or for me to have to break the bottle with a hammer!
