    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!

      Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

      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.

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

        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.

              Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

              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.

                Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

                I would not buy it again. I LOVE MAC lipsticks and lip liners, however I didn't think their lip primer did anything special. I will be sticking with my Smashbox Clear lipliner as a lip primer to provide a sticky base to lock lip liner and lipsticks color in place.

                  Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

                  This does moisturizer lips, but I originally bought it to help stop my lipstick from bleeding. When I use it, my lip liners (MAC) will barely come on, which is frustrating because that is how insculpt my lips and provide the right color balance. It also does not stop bleeding from lipstick. I tried putting it under liquid matte lipsticks to avoid dryness (Colourpop, Stila, AnatasiaBH) and I found that the liquid lipsticks that normally don't budget, end up smearing when put in top of this.

                    Love this product. I am a mature women with wrinkles around my lips. This keeps lipstick from bleeding into wrinkles or feathering. Makes lipstick look fresh.
