Good Afternoon lovely readers! I thought I'd break my review dry spell with this little beauty, the Mac Pro Longwear Foundation (that and it's a good excuse for avoiding revision!). I mentioned in my lust list post (here) that my friend Laura actually shocked me on a night out by her flawless foundation (not even an exaggeration, I'm sad!) So much so that I knew I had to try a Mac foundation. She used the Studio Fix fluid but after some research and the Mac foundation test (which you can try here), I got matched with the Pro Longwear foundation.
Now as a broke student, my dream of walking into Debenhams to buy this beauty was long off, however my lovely boyfriend said he'd treat me to a bottle as a reward for finishing my dissertation (this boy is a keeper). So I practically ran to the Mac concession to pick it up. I had a bit of trouble choosing between shades NC15 and NW20 so the lovely staff suggested I take away samples of each, see how I get on and if I don't like the shade or finish I could bring it back. So that's exactly what I did and left Debenhams with a bottle, two samples and a big cheesy grin on my chops.

So the moral of the story is while I took it back due to it not getting along with my dry skin (grr), for all you oily skinned gals (and guys) this foundation will be a dream come true for you. It currently sells for £25.00 and you can pick it up directly from the Mac website here or from Debenhams concessions. Have you tried it? If so what did you think? Let me know in the comments below!
