Oh, I do so LOVE this product!
This was introduced to me by a MAC artist when I was in-store looking for a matte red lipstick.
I'm not usually someone who does much with her lips. A bit of gloss here, some cremesheen there, nothing fancy. Having said that, looking for siren red lipstick for a "new look" for me was an eye opener.
I tried Ruby Woo without the primer, because I thought the primer to be a little superfluous and also thinking lip liner would be sufficient... Well, I thought wrong. The lipstick stayed somewhat, but my lips got so dry because it's a super matte lipstick. putting lip balm underneath eased the drying, but nixed the staying power of the lipstick... not good
So off I went and ordered the primer online. It is the epitome of "Stay Put"! =) Wore the lipstick with everything and it stayed throughout dinner AND dessert. WOW!
here's how I did it: Lip balm when applying my foundation, just to it has enough time to sink in (I do my lips last). Lip primer, letting it "dry" properly, lip liner, lipstick.. done..
I first purchased this primer over two years ago and after losing it, bought it again two months ago. When I first purchased it I noticed that my lips were getting chapped to the point that if I didn't wear lipstick my lips looked terrible, but I didn't think it was due to the primer. Fast forward to two months ago when I tried it again, I'm having the same issues with my lips and now I can't help but think that it is in fact this primer that's causing all of the problems.

Honestly this lip primer does it for me, not only does it smooth out the texture of my lips it keeps my lip liner from feathering and allows me to wear my matte lipsticks. I love that it also lets my lipstick and glosses look true to color !

Love how this Lip Primer feels on.

This is my third or fourth time buying this primer. I've tried other comparable primers, but I was never impressed with their lip priming abilities the way I was with MAC's primer. I usually swipe this on before I begin the rest of my face routine, then by the end of foundation, concealer, etc., the primer has set to a perfect tackiness and my lip products (especially liners) go on with such ease and they stay on! I've gone to dinner and drinks with this under my lipstick and the lipstick stays put throughout (unless, obviously you wipe firmly enough). I will continue buying this lip primer without looking back!

This is definitely a must have! My lipstick stays on sooo much longer, as well as go on smoother because it's very hydrating!

This did nothing for my lips. This is literally a high-priced vaseline/waxy chapstick. I originally bought this so I wouldn't have to keep reapplying lipstick all night. This product was very useless.

I bought this lip primer to use with matte lipstick. But I love it so much I use it daily as a chapstick.

I love MAC and have used MAC almost exclusively for at least 30 years, isn't that crazy? Anyway, I wear darks and brights for lipstick and had tried this Prep and Prime for lips about 5yrs ago. I found it deeply disappointing. It does not promote long wear like I expected. So I have used another brand of lip primer for a long time and now cannot find it so, tried the MAC one again...still extremely ineffectual for me. Very disappointed. I will be returning it.

Keeps my lips moist and the color on.

This primer is so smooth and gentle on my lips (they're sensitive and dry... I am married to lip hydrators....) and it feels amazing! It grabs my lip color and holds it in place. I recommend letting it set for a few minutes prior to applying lip color.

I apply the primer before my lipstick and it helps to keep my lips smooth and my lipstick last longer.service

I always keep this on hand. I use this daily to keep my gloss or lipstick from feathering. I tend to have very dry lips & since using this it's all I need! I think it's a staple item for makeup lovers!
Hk from Wayne
I never believed in lip primers until I got this as a gift. This is my 3rd or 4th time repurchasing it. I would recommend this to friends/family.

Applying this first before any lipstick, lipgloss, lipliner makes it easier. Less bleeding (especially those red & berry color). Color stays longer too.
Most important keeps my lips soft & hydrated

Always loved Mac Lip products! This is great primer and moisturizer. It prevents my lipstick or lip crayon from creasing. Holds it together extremely well!

This as a base for lipstick 💄 is an absolute necessity!

I am 66 and need something to help my lipstick stay in place. Bought this on a recommendation from a friend and have never looked back. I don't know if there's something better or less expensive and I don't care. All I can say is that I won't look for anything else because this does what I want it to do. That is to keep my lipstick in place and looking very nice.

My lipstick/ liner never runs. This is an essential part of my daily routine
Have been using this for 15 years!!!!

I have REALLY dry lips, to the point where they basically "shed" as I call it. I hate this because lipstick does not look smooth, it's always creased in my lips and looks messy. I was hoping this product would help with evening out the crevices on my lips, but honestly it doesn't, and I wouldn't buy it again. Basically a simple chapstick, and not as thick as I had imagined it would be. Not worth the money. Get burts bees chapstick instead lol

This is the only lip primer I really like. Does make my mature lips look smoother. Had to grab an extra while it was on sale. I keep 2 around at all times. One for my makeup stash and one for my handbag. Works for all lip products.

I like it.
Mimi from Southern Florida
Wonderful product! Makes lip products last longer, doesn't bleed & doesn't dry out lips. No fragrance. Only downside is that the product can break during warm weather or if stick is swiveled out too far.

It feels nice on my lips but idk if it's really necessary

Makes a huge difference when I prime with this primer. Specialty with matte colors.

My aunt once had it gifted to her but she didn't know what it was 🤣 and have it to me! I wear lipstick EVERYDAY! It lasted me a very long time. I just re ordered but it came in broken in the mail. I love MAC!

I have dry, chapped lips all throughout the year so I usually don't wear lipstick unless I'm having a good lip day. I read all the great reviews and decided to give it a shot during the sale. Texture is super smooth and buttery and smells like vanilla. Right away I noticed my lips no longer looked dry. Next, I put on my new Lipstick Queen lipstick from the sale. After lunch my bf saw me and asked if I was wearing lipstick. I totally forgot I had put some on and was excited that it was still there. I usually always have to reapply after a meal. I ran to a mirror and yup, still there! I've had tons of glasses of water to drink, did a workout at home, and had dinner. Lipstick is still there. I've never used another lip primer before but I'm sold on this one. Definitely give it a shot!
