M·A·C Cosmetics Prep + Prime Natural Radiance

When your makeup can't stand the test of time and excess shine, prevent oil buildup by prepping skin with this silky primer that's made for oily and combination complexions. The formula relies on caffeine to calm for smoother texture, plus vitamins E and C to hydrate, protect, and control oil. Added bonus: The pearlescent light-reflecting powders in each shade—Radiant Yellow for medium to dark skin tones and Radiant Pink for light to medium complexions—complement your undertones to give your complexion a natural-looking radiance.

Not for me.

I’m never really sure what primers are supposed to do really. This one just turned me shimmery yellow. Maybe they’d be good for someone who uses concealer, but I don’t.

I have dry skin?
Sampled

I can't speak to whether this product helps keep oily skin from ruining your makeup because ... I don't have oily skin.

A bit sparkly
Sampled

I noticed that it looked like there were sparkles in it once I put it on, which I’m not a big fan of. It applied nicely, though!

Meh

I’ve gotten several products from MAC in my Birchboxes and I have yet to try one that made me think these products were worth the popularity. They don’t do much in the way of priming your skin, and mostly just felt like a bad moisturizer. I just don’t think their products are geared toward people who have more sensitive skin or acne prone skin. I’m sure this is a good primer for someone who doesn’t have a lot of skin concerns, but I need something better.
