Here are the claims (from Nordstrom):
"MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation is a tenacious waterproof formula that can be used as a foundation or concealer, wearing for an unprecedented 24 hours. Neither rain nor tears can budge this oil-free, watertight product that actually repels moisture from the surface of the face. It blends seamlessly on your skin with medium to full weightless coverage and a natural satin finish."
Wow! Flawless coverage, waterproof, 24-hour wear? Sign me up.
Price: Retails for $32 for 0.85 oz.
Packaging: Comes in a nice squeeze tube with screw on cap.
Application: As with most heavier coverage foundations, I prefer to apply this with a damp Beauty Blender. I find that it gives the best, most even finish.
Finish: This foundation sets to a demi-matte finish.
Color: I picked up the shade NC25, which is my regular shade. I had read that this line from MAC tends to run a bit light, and I have to agree. I think NC30 would probably have been a more accurate color match, but I can make NC25 work, too.

Final thoughts: If you are purchasing this foundation for a truly full coverage, flawless finish and you have a lot of discoloration to cover, as I do, I would pass on this. I think for someone with fairly good skin to begin with, this would be a nice everyday foundation since it feels nice and evens out the skin nicely. However, it does not cover as well as it claims.
