Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the MAC Prep + Prime Skin face primer.
As you can see I only have a sample of it but when I asked you 90% of you said you didn’t care and you wanted the review so here I am.
I have to say, this product snuck up on me, I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I do, it was a sample MAC send with a recent purchase and I started using it to take pictures and not waste my beloved Clarins Sos Primer Blurs Imperfections.
In fact, for the past almost two years nothing has been nearly as good as that one. It’s actually the perfect primer, in my opinion, and nothing compares so I was kind of surprised that I liked this one.
You can get it here for 33$.
Having the sample, I can’t say much of my packaging but I like the original one.
It’s pretty, I appreciate the pump as it disperses the right amount of product and it’s super hygienic.
EFFECT & TEXTURE
This primer feels like a cream, it doesn’t feel like a silicone product.
It makes my skin super smooth and even. The best way to describe it is velvety, it makes your skin matt but not flat or dry, doesn’t grab to dry patches and it fills in pores and fine lines.
The best way to apply it is by dabbing it on with your fingers.
It definitely makes my foundation last all day and it doesn’t break it apart. It doesn’t claim to be mattifying so I still have to blot my face but that means that it will work for different skin types.
- Effect: 8/10
- Longevity: 10/10
- Application: 9/10
- Formula: 8/10
- Packaging: 9/10
I love this primer. After using it my skin looks smooth, velvety and even. I think the only thing is missing from the Clarins one, is that one is tinted which makes it perfect to wear on its own. The lasting power is fantastic, my face makeup stays in place all day long and I don’t have to worry about it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
