    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime 24-Hour Extend Eye Base:

    I REALLY wanted to love this product. Been looking for a replacement from my Urban Decay since I don't like using wands (even though I love the product), and I thought for certain that MAC would be the next best option. I do have oily skin, but my shadow creased in under 12 hours and faded dramatically. Ive used it more than once in hopes that perhaps it would be different for me. Each time, same result. Finding a great primer is extremely important to me as I am training to be a flight attendant and my makeup looking fresh is crucial. The search for the perfect primer continues for me.

          I normally have trouble with creasing. Living in the Houston area it's expected, this has been been great. Appreciate Ulta willing to return, if I am not pleased. It makes me more willing to shop around and try different brands. Thank you Ulta!

              This primer is amazing! I've used it for everyday look, and party. I had eyeshadow on for 12 hours and it looked flawless. I danced, drinker, sweated, and yet my eyeshadow was flawless.

                  How does compare with the MAC Paint Pots for long wear and vibrancy of the shadows?

                    MAC Prep + Prime 24-Hour Extend Eye Base is colourless and lightweight, infused with the rich antioxidant vitamin E and is ideal for all skin tones and types, extending wear of your eye shadow for up to 24 hours.

It provides a medium coverage and can help to even out skintone on lids.

                • Q:

                  Is this primer tinted at all? I prefer a nude eye primer as a base for my shadows to even out some dark spots on my lids.

                    A:

                    MAC Prep + Prime 24 Hour Extend Eye Base isn't tinted, but it helps Eye Shadows apply and stay colour true. Apply all over the eyelid, and be sure to wait one minute for it to dry before the application of eye makeup. We think you'll be ecstatic with the results!
