      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

      Most amazing primer EVER. I've used everything from low-cost brands (Maybelline) to the highest (Tarte, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals) you name it. This one lasts all day, doesn't leave makeup cakey, and feels totally natural all day. A bit on the pricier side, but well worth every penny.

        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.

                  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.

                      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!
