Kat Von D Lock It Concealer vs MAC Pro Longwear Concealer



I am always on the hunt for my holy grail concealer. I don’t think I have found a concealer yet that I love through and through. These are two concealers that I thought were really similar so I wanted to do a comparison blog post so you guys can see the similarities and differences between them!

First up I want to mention the amount of product that you get with both of these products. With the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer you get 17ml of product. Whereas in the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer you get 9ml. So with the Kat Von D you get near enough double the amount of product that you do than the MAC!

Then onto how the product is dispensed. The Kat Von D Concealer is a squeezy tube and the product comes out of a small spout. I like this because it helps you to control the amount of product that you are getting. With the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, it has a pump, I personally always have issues with this because one full pump is far too much product and it ends up been wasted and it is next too impossible to just do half a pump!


Now onto the consistency of both of these products. Both the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer and the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer are quite lightweight and thin consistency’s. If you were to pump or squeeze this onto the back of your hand and hold it up the product would just run off the back. This is good because it helps it to blend out really easily but it can make it difficult to build it up to very full coverage.

Most important part in my opinion, the coverage that these concealers give. The Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Concealer is very full coverage. If I apply this very lightly to the hyperpigmentation on my cheeks and then lightly blend it using my finger it will completely cover it without any issues. The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is very similar in coverage but a tiny amount lighter. It can very easily be built up though to be completely full coverage.



Now for the packaging. From the pictures you may be able to see that the Kat Von D Concealer is in a plastic squeezy tube. This is ideal for travelling and having in your makeup bag. The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is in a glass bottle. I have been buying this product for years and I have accidently smashes two bottles and had one crushed when I was travelling.

Finally, for the price. The MAC Pro Longwear concealer over here in the UK you can pick up for around £18 from the MAC store and from places such as House of Fraser. The Kat Von D Concealer isn’t available here to buy in the UK so I had to purchase through Sephora and have it shipped over. I think for the product alone with VAT added it worked out around £25. Then with shipping and handling fees that added another £10 onto the price so all together it was £35, which is pretty pricey for a concealer!

Now this is the part where I usually break down and let you guys know which one of the products I would rather buy. With these two products I don’t have a clear cut winner. I love the Kat Von D because you get so much product and it covers really well but to order it to the UK it is just too much money. And on the other hand the MAC is a really great product but as nice as the glass packaging is it just isn’t practical!

Let me know in the comments below if you have tried one or both of these products and let me know how you found it! I will also link below to both of the products and where you can find them…

  2. Ah does the Kat Von D one not sell in Debenhams? They have such huge stands in there now! Shame if not as it sounds amazing and I'd love to get my hands on it!

    1. It does but they don't seem to sell this original concealer and I prefer it so much more than the new crème one!

  3. Both of these sounds like really good products. I am currently using my Maybelline anti-aging eraser eye concealer but I do feel that I need a heavier coverage concealer. MAC is a brand that I have neglected for a while so it would be great to try out some more of their products soon.

    Have a lovely day ♥

    1. I have and I have to say that I didn't love it as much as I do this original concealer. I may have to give it another go though!
