                  I received this in my ipsy bag and fell in love with it so I had to order it. I love how it feels on my skin as if it was a moisturizer. Because I have combo skin and this was intended for that purpose this is prefect because it helps control some of the oil I get in my t-zone.

                    Yes yes yes! You NEED this. If you are on the fence, just go ahead and add it to your bag; you can thank me later. I love the shimmer in this primer, it's not heavy, and provides a great smooth appearance. Works super well under MAC foundation and great for oily skin - it doesn't add additional oil or make you look shiny. Do yourself a favor, and by this now!

                        Excellent questions, Susan, and you're on the right track! Apply Primer after Moisturizer and prior to Foundation. Allow a few moments in between "layers" for best results.

                        A:

                        Great question, Jessica! Both formulas are a primer- MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance is more oil-controlling and gives more of a radiance than MAC Prep + Prime Skin. It also has a subtle yellow or pink tint, where the original MAC formula is colourless. We hope this helps!

                        Hi, Sharon!

                        While not "sparkly", MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Primers do have an Illuminating pearl effect that gives skin a healthy-looking radiance.

                        Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, this lightweight gel formula can be worn alone to enhance the look of skin and control shine and is also a fantastic primer when applied prior to makeup.

                        We hope you'll get glowing and give it a try!
