MAC Pro Longwear powderDuring a makeup emergency (long story!) I bought the new MAC Prolongwear Pressed Powder ($26) in Light Plus on a trip several weeks ago. I integrated it into my daily routine immediately, without photographing the product or keeping the box as I usually do.  In the meantime, I’ve been impressed with this light-coverage, velvet-matte powder. I thought it was worth discussing even if my pictures aren’t complete. This comes in eleven (11) shades from Light to Dark Deepest. MAC’s Prolongwear Pressed Powder is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Dillards and other MAC sources.

Unlike Blot or other translucent powders, MAC Prolongwear Powder offers light coverage –I apply mine with this large Chanel powder brush but anything large and fluffy will do. The real need that this powder fulfills is that my skin stays matte all the live-long day. As you can legitimately infer from it’s name, this powder delivers marathon long-distance matte wear, even in the brutal heat that we are experiencing now in Northern California.

Here’s a heavy finger-swatch on my summer-tanned arm (the match on my sunscreen-protected face is a match):

I found that powder is nicely milled for a powder in this price range. Using this powder to mattify and add a velvet finish to the skin (or to add over a foundation or other base) is a perfect way to add a velvety cool-looking surface to the skin. Very well done.

  1. I love that this adds a little coverage to skin, as I love wearing a light base and sometimes you just want a little extra boost!

  2. have you maybe tried careblend powder? just for comparison. for me it’s the best mac powder so far. it has amazing soft velvety texture and natural matte/satin finish

  3. Love your reviews <3

  4. I love this and have one myself
