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.

This is a great product. I have very dry lips but love matte lipstick which is not a good combination. This primer acts as a balm and keeps my lips hydrates while keeping the color of the lipstick stay in place for a long time.

I LOVE this lip primer!!! I usually can't wear matte lipsticks because my lips get so dry, but THIS product is amazing! It keeps my lips soft and moist and my matte lipsticks go on and stay on beautifully. Absolutely Love this primer and will definitely buy again. One tip that I got from another buyer was to put on lip liner first to line lips then apply this product and that has worked for me as well. Very happy with this product.

This is just a very over priced waxy chapstick. I was told by the sales clerk that this product is extremely moisturizing with an added sunscreen, so that I wouldn't have to wear lipstick over it. It is neither! I love Mac cosemtics, but I wouldn't waste my money on this.Lessoned learned, don't believe the sales people.

I highly recommend MAC Prep & Prime lip
Primer to any consumer interested in purchasing. I've been using this product for nearly a decade and don't intend to stop in the near future. This lip primer holds lipstick in place for a generous amount of time. I am pleased with the quality of this item.

It keeps my lips hydrated and my lipstick in touch. Works very well

Bought it on sale & love it. Wore under a matte lipstick & it looked great the entire night & it was super hydrating underneath the lipstick. Lipstick & liner also never moved. I did my eye makeup, applied this then did face makeup then did my lip combo & worked perfectly.

It was okay. Didn't make lip wear last as long as I thought it would

My lipstick stayed put even under my mask.

I wasn't very impressed with this product. I had seen it in the past and read all the rave reviews. I took a chance on buying it when it was on sale. I'm glad I didn't pay full price because it is nothing more than a glorified lip balm. It's very hard to apply lip liner after the primer. I tried waiting a minute or two, but the lip liner still comes on faded and undefined. To note, I used a Mac lip liner not an inexpensive drug store brand. When I applied a Mac lipstick over it, the application was smooth but did not last any longer on my lips than without the primer. I will say that this primer probably works best with matte lipsticks as those tend to be drier and do not glide on lips smoothly. I tend to use Mac cremesheen or satin lipsticks. This product would be suited best for matte or long wearing lipsticks.

Purchased this a while ago (one for me, one for my mom). My mom likes it as a nice moisturizing base before she puts on lipstick. She got more use out of this product than I did since she regularly applies lipstick (5-10 times a day). I on the other hand don't really use it since you can get the same results with any chapstick as long as the chapstick isn't too oily, and I don't frequently wear lipstick (1-3 applications per day).

this thing absolutely sucks. I can't believe it has good reviews
It made my lipsticks more crusty looking and I was using Mac lipsticks too.

I bought this product hoping it would be a great balm that didn't wipe off easy bc of wearing mask all day. it hits the mark for that, I dont generally wear lipstick, I decided to try it under my new lip kit and didn't notice a difference in transfer. I appreciate the hydration and would purchase again if on sale.
NKT from TX
I tried this on a whim and I love it! I wear matte lipstick almost every day and have always struggled with feathering. While this product doesn't help my lipstick last longer, I have noticed that my lips feel less dry when I have on lipstick AND it fades more evenly (no more feathering!). I previously tried the ELF primer but I like this better because it's colorless and it feels more like a lip balm. I would recommend this!

Use product as a base but not conditioning

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!
Vic from ND
This is definitely a must have! My lipstick stays on sooo much longer, as well as go on smoother because it's very hydrating!
Lyd from USA
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.
Cherie from Wi
Keeps my lips moist and the color on.
Rachel from USA
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.
Grammee from IN
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!
