MAC Pro Longwear LipColour Review

Tuesday, 3 February 2015

When choosing my make up for my wedding, I knew I wanted a professional make up artist. I'm generally a bit rubbish at doing my make up (as you can see!) and I wanted something that would last all day and look good on camera. When I went for my make up trial I asked them to tell me the lipgloss they used, so I could purchase in order to top up through the day. In the end I didn't have to top up much (and generally I didn't have time!), but I have used the lipgloss regularly since.

I own MAC lipsticks but I had never bought anything from their Pro range before. This LipColour is designed to be long lasting and has two elements to it; the long lasting colour and a clear lipgloss to go over the top. This colour is called Unchanging, which is a pinky/purpley colour. Its a colour that can be worn everyday but also gives enough colour that its noticeable and not a completely nude colour.

The colour goes on well with the little sponge applicator. You have to wait for it to fully dry before applying the gloss. I have found it is quite important to ensure that your lips are soft and flake free as the main downside to this gloss is that when as it dries it can dry out your lips quite a bit, and start to go flakey. I have a tendency to rub my lips together a lot, and the more you do this, the more the colour starts to flake off your lips. If you frequently re-apply the gloss that does combat it. The clear lipgloss is starting to discolour a bit due to the transfer of colour, so I think after a while it might start to look at bit manky. The colour does last well and there is little or no transfer and its easy ot use  without the need for lipliner.

Overall I like this colour and gloss combo and I do still use it fairly often.. At £18 it's not overly cheap but I have been considering purchasing the more red shade in the range.

Have you used any of the MAC Pro range?
