    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

    I absolutely LOVE this primer. I have tried many other prestigious brands like: Benefit, Becca, Urban Decay and to me nothing compares. It applies so smooth and holds everything in place. It is pricy (use a coupon if possible) however it has so much product that it lasted me an entire year!

      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

      I'm trying to find a product that keeps my makeup on for my day job, this is not it. I really don't think it's asking much for my makeup to last from 8 am to 5 pm, but apparently it is. I feel like this does nothing but add an extra step to my makeup routine.

          Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

          This is a pretty good primer. I bought it on recommendation from a MAC store associate, rather than an Ulta associate, but I really liked it. I used the entire thing, and the tint helped to even out my skin tone as well as prep the skin for foundation. It was a great combo that left my skin looking very smooth. I'd recommend this again, easily.

            This is the best makeup primer I have ever used! I have tried every high end one on the market. It's lightweight and not greasy and makeup stays put!!! I have oily skin and work in a restaurant and still. Have a flawless face at the end of every shift!!! I'm on my 2nd bottle and will never go without!

              I am beyond excited that Ulta now carries MAC - I have been using this prep and prime Natural Radiance in the yellow for over a year now and love it. I have mature, normal to dry skin and I apply it with the MAC foundation brush - it not only preps my skin but the brush as well so the foundation goes on smooth and even.

              Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

              This product is exceptional. Performs exactly as claimed. I purchased the pink. Especially love the way it stops my foundation from settling into fine lines. Love the subtle radiance effect.

              Didn't do much for me!

              Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

              I really wanted to love this MAC face primer. I have combination skin. The primer was too drying and too matte meaning it made my skin look flat underneath the MAC foundation which I absolutely love. It didn't seem to have any benefit for my skin, but maybe it's just me.

              The Gold Standard

              By Spyral

              from Tallahassee, FL, USA

              Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

              This is my go-to everyday primer and is especially great for those of us with combo skin. It transforms full coverage foundation that tends to look cakey into radiant perfection. My skin just looks great whenever I wear this, even at the end of a long day when my makeup starts to fade. I can't be without this primer.

                  Hi, Sharon!

                  While not "sparkly", MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Primers do have an Illuminating pearl effect that gives skin a healthy-looking radiance.

                  Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, this lightweight gel formula can be worn alone to enhance the look of skin and control shine and is also a fantastic primer when applied prior to makeup.

                  We hope you'll get glowing and give it a try!
