Panic Proof Makeup…


There’s not many foundations that actually really live up to their claims of being long wearing, sweat proof and all that jazz! However there are a few hero products that really do last all day and aren’t making a swift exit from your face by 11am! The first of these being Estee Lauder Double Wear which I have reviewed previously and the second being Mac’s Pro-Longewear Foundation. So naturally when I had an interview on Monday (massive panic mode) I was going to reach for one of these beauty’s!

I chose to use my Mac Pro-Longwear foundation which I wear in the shade NC35. I probably am more towards shade NC30 at the moment but I can still get away with NC35 when blended in. The shades in the Pro-long wear are most definitely not as yellow toned as the Studio Fix Fluid and it also has a pump unlike the Studio Fix Fluid.

To apply this I use either a Mac 187 stippling brush for a lighter airbrushed finish or a beauty blender. If you are wanting to build up or layer this foundation I would definitely recommend using a beauty blender rather than a brush as dry’s pretty quickly and can set into lines and pores too much is applied.

I have read reviews in the past where by people have said that this foundation ages them- I can certainly relate to this and would agree that if you use too much product or its not applied with care this may happen. I have also noticed that this foundation can be quite sticky if you use too much.

Having said this it is a beautiful flawless foundation if applied correctly and really does last all day. I have tried and tested this all day long and dancing all night at a Beyoncé concert and I find that if I am slightly shiny by the end of the day its more dewy than oily.

Pro-Long VS Double Wear

Double Wear
Medium/Full Coverage
Brilliant shade range (More neutral shades than MAC)
Non Acnegenic
Slightly longer wearing than PL Wear

Medium Coverage
No flashback in photos (DW doesn’t photograph well)

Over all I would say Double Wear takes the crown for long wearing foundation but if your looking for an alternative with a lighter coverage that’s photo friendly Pro-Longwear is another great option for us oily girls!
