      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

      I have never believed this product to be moisturizing at all. It's kind of like a pore filler for your lips, and like double sided tape for your lipstick. It's meant to reduce feathering, so I don't bring it all the way to the lip line, and instead use a lip liner for long lasting wear (kinda like a chicken soup for the lipstick lol). Will always use on clients for weddings, prom, special events.

      I really like this product. It helps my matte lipsticks stay put and keep them from drying out. I highly recommend it.

        This really works. I'm 65 and certain lipsticks bleed. When I use this they don't, plain and simple.

        changed color of lipstick

        By trailnut

        from EL, MI

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

        Bought it to extend the life of fave semi-sheer lipsticks that don't last past an hour or two. But it's useless to me because it dramatically changes their color. I even tried it with a MAC lipstick, Chili, and it turned magenta. This orange-red lipstick went purple-pink.

          Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

          My ulta gal recommended it to keep matte long-wearing lippies from drying out my lips and to prevent feathering. It does both swimmingly. I can't NOT wear it under every lipstick every day!

            When I tried this on at Ulta, I could not believe the feel of it! It felt like cool silk on the lips. I had been trying on drying lipstick and my lips had had it. The MAC professional told me to wait a minute while she got something that would help. I had never seen this product before nor heard of it. Once it was applied to my lips, a cooling and smooth sensation made all that stinging and drying disappear. I immediately told her to get me one & put it in my basket. I didn't even know how much it cost, it was just that good that I had to have it. The only negative that I have about it is that there is not a whole lot of product, so I only apply a thin layer. It doesn't take a lot, which is good.

              I have a good quality lipstick that is dry and does not go on smoothly. At the the suggestion of the Ulta sales associate I purchased this lip prep. It goes on smoothly over my chapped lips and does not change the color of the lipstick.

                    I was not incredibly overwhelmed by this product in the first few wears - it did help moisturize lips with products that were drying but still noticed some bleeding around the edges where had not noticed without. Was willing to try further since it was a new product but on only the fourth wear, opened the container to use it and the stick flew up and out of the container straight into the drain. Not worth the price to try more.
