Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Skin:

I switched to this from bare minerals primer because theirs wasn't doing anything for me. This primer works pretty well paired with Mac foundation however I don't like how it feels heavy and eventually my face still ends up getting oily afte a few hours

    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Skin:

    I read up on a lot of different primers and tried a ton too. This is my favorite so far. Fairly long lasting. Everyone complains because there is "glitter " in it. There is not. It's more "illuminating" if I was trying to find the right word. And it does not show up on my skin after applying. I will buy this again.

              Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Skin:

              I got a sample in a Birchbox box and am so happy that I did. Most primers leaving me look blah so I wasn't expecting much from this either. Whoa....this stuff makes my powder foundation look flawless (well, except for few dry flakies but not a deal breaker). My skin looked smooth, finished and natural - not powdery, blotchy, or greasy. I get greasy from most silicone-based primers and my skin is normal to dry. Now with my BB cream, it doesn't play so well resulting in the dreaded blotchiness and skin that looks older than I am. I am so tempted to splurge!

                  Good product! It does have little tiny flecks of glitter in it, but I don't notice them once I apply foundation on top. The glitter is tiny, you have to really look for the glitter. I have pretty normal skin, and this primer just makes my skin feel very smooth. It doesn't ball up once I add foundation on top. It's pretty long lasting as well. A little bit of product goes a very long way as well!
