    Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

    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!

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance:

        I have looked everywhere for a good quality primer. This one is by far the best one I have ever used! Smashbox photo finish primer is great as well, but this one fits me perfectly. It is long lasting, smells good, very soft, and all you need is a little bit. The pump was a little tricky figuring out at first but once you figure out how to get the right amount out you're golden.

            Most amazing primer EVER. I've used everything from low-cost brands (Maybelline) to the highest (Tarte, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals) you name it. This one lasts all day, doesn't leave makeup cakey, and feels totally natural all day. A bit on the pricier side, but well worth every penny.

              I absolutely LOVE this primer. I have tried many other prestigious brands like: Benefit, Becca, Urban Decay and to me nothing compares. It applies so smooth and holds everything in place. It is pricy (use a coupon if possible) however it has so much product that it lasted me an entire year!

                I'm trying to find a product that keeps my makeup on for my day job, this is not it. I really don't think it's asking much for my makeup to last from 8 am to 5 pm, but apparently it is. I feel like this does nothing but add an extra step to my makeup routine.

                    This is a pretty good primer. I bought it on recommendation from a MAC store associate, rather than an Ulta associate, but I really liked it. I used the entire thing, and the tint helped to even out my skin tone as well as prep the skin for foundation. It was a great combo that left my skin looking very smooth. I'd recommend this again, easily.

                      This is the best makeup primer I have ever used! I have tried every high end one on the market. It's lightweight and not greasy and makeup stays put!!! I have oily skin and work in a restaurant and still. Have a flawless face at the end of every shift!!! I'm on my 2nd bottle and will never go without!

                          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!
