REVIEW: MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC42

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC42
I've struggled with dark circles all of my life and unfortunately I haven't been able to do much with them since they're hereditary so I have been on the search these past few years for my HG concealer.
A few weeks ago I went to my nearby MAC store in Nordstrom and got matched as a NC42.
This concealer retails for $19 and contains about 0.30 US fl oz. It comes in a clear glass container with a black pump. MAC describes the finish as medium to full coverage natural matte finish that can last up to 15 hours.

I am very impressed with this concealer and it definitely lives up to its hype. I love that it covers up dark circles so well and the finish that it leaves looks so natural! I find that I do not need to use as much product to cover my dark circles compared to other concealers that I have used in the past. The consistency of it is thin and light and it has a slight scent to it that is sort of hard to explain- it smells like flowers but it does not last throughout the day and the scent doesn't bother me. Another pro is that it lives up to its claim that it is longwearing, it definitely lasts throughout the day when set and does not budge. I have a few fine lines on my under eyes and it does not settle in them.
A few cons are that it comes in a glass container- I personally like the packaging but there are many people who don't like it because it breaks easily if dropped. A BIG con is the pump, I like the fact that it has a pump so it doesn't leave a mess but the pump dispenses wayyy too much product- much more than I really need so feel like I'm wasting product. I really wish that MAC would fix the pump but I know that this concealer is going to last me a long time so I'm not too worried about the pump. A small con could be the price to some but I believe it is well worth it.
 With concealer applied and bare under eyes.
Would I repurchase?
YES!
I am very pleased with my first MAC purchase and I am very excited to try some more MAC.
