    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter:

    I apply this product under my eyes for tired dark circles. It blends beautifully and almost instantly gives me pop where I normally look tired.
    My only issue with the product is not the product itself but the applicator. Sometimes too much product comes out which I feel is wasted so I have started using the excess on my cheekbones. Love it!

                  I have been using this for years and will continue. I have often looked for a cheaper alternative but I have just resolved myself into this is it. Perfect peach tone corrector for Med/deep and deep skin tones, blends flawlessly, little goes a long way, and for some extra flush look on the high points on the cheeks add this then too with show gold, stunning!

                  Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter:

                  I love this product for cancelling out darkness and concealing underneath the eyes. It's great because it is a thin, illuminating formula that doesn't look cakey. I always find this product a bit pricey, but well worth it!

                  Love this. I use it to brighten my eyes and it has a lil bit of shimmer like in it to brighten the face. I can also use this to contour. Has a couple uses.

                  • Q:

                    Hi, I use MAC color NC25 for my foundations and have been using the color "bright forecast" for this concealer for years. It turns a little dark from oxidation after a full-days wear I'm wondering if the lightest option for this concealer is a better fit for my skin tone? Or if it will make any difference at all.

                      A:

                      Radiant Rose MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter, on its own or blended with Bright Forecast would probably work beautifully for you, Vicky!

                  • Q:

                    Hey there! I'm looking for something that will hide my dark circles but still be a concealer- will this product do the trick? Or will I need to buy a concealer with this as well.

                      A:

                      MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter is sheer and will help to brighten. If dark circles are significant you may need to pair with a concealer.

                  • Q:

                    Hi, I bought this to brighten my dark circles under my eyes. Does this work for that and do I use it under or over my concealer? Thank you!
