I have been using this product for ever! I was super happy to get a little sample so I could take on vacation! I will keep using this product!

my new go-to
Purchased

I love primers but found out early you need the right one or they're more damage than they are beneficial. This is my new fav & a definite recommendation for anyone still looking for that perfect prime. Occasionally I also add a few drops of my favorite liquid highlighter for an all-over glistening base before applying my foundation. ❤️

Nice product

Prep + Prime is a nice light-weight addition to your make-up regime. My only problem is I don't use M.A.C. products.

I like the way this primer made my face matte as I deal with oily skin

Doesn’t clog pores
Sampled

Typically the big complaint with Mac products is that they clog pores. Not this primer! Leaves a gorgeous luminous finish on skin and prepares it perfectly for makeup. I’d definitely repurchase.

Best primer I’ve ever used
Sampled

This stuff is a must under my foundation and concealer. I have wrinkles/lines/visible pores and combination skin so makeup and can easily look streaky or heavier in some spots. But Prep and Prime Base helps everything blend beautifully without feeling heavy or oily. I recommend!

Meh
Purchased

There are Definitely better primers out there. This one is very hydrating and has a super subtle illuminating affect but it doesn’t blur pores and I don’t feel that it makes your make up last much longer than other average primers

This makes my face very oily. I don’t like using it.

Love, love, love it!

This is the perfect primer! It makes your skin feel so soft and the subtle glitter in it is amazing!
