I'm indifferent about this primer.
It feels smooth, prevents lipstick smearing, has nice scent and packaging, it's not pricey but... I don't really like the tacky feeling on my lips. Probably won't repurchase.
PROS: Best lip primer I've ever tried. Helps my lipstick from bleeding into lip wrinkles, and does it last longer. Doesn't dry my lips out at all.
CONS: Not cheap. Also, it's not common, but it can break off, so don't "roll it up" too high. Just roll it up as high as you need to.
I think this helps make lipstick look better
I love this! Absolutely love this. Before I tried the MAC Prep + Prime, I was using Urban Decay's Lip Primer Potion. That lip primer gave me the impression that lip primers are the spawn of Satan and I hated it. Then I tried the MAC one and I fell in love!
The product itself is completely transparent, super creamy and moisturizing. It prevents my lipstick from feathering (which it always does without it) and keeps the lipstick from drying out my lips. Also, the primer smells really good, which is a plus!
Totally worth the money.
I never really liked lipsticks because they were dry and smelled like old perfume but MAC lipsticks changed everything for me! The colors are beautiful and match me perfectly. Reasonable price, wide variety and selection Iíve become obsessed and I love all their collections. I highly recommend buying them!
I recently bought this to use before applying my MAC lipsticks and it's wonderful! Definitely recommend!!!
I LOVE this lip primer. After years of suffering with dodgy lipstick smudges and smears, I stopped wearing bright lipstick. Then I had a MAC makeover and the MU artist chose a bright lippie for me. I refused, telling her why, and she told me about prep and prime lip. I bought one that day and have never looked back. I wear it any time I wear a pigmented lipstick, My lips feel nourished, and I NEVER get smudges, nor does my lipstick bleed. I can now wear any bright coloured lippie with confidence. Best invention ever! I find it works best by applying it all over, slightly above and below my lips, then letting it set for at least ten minutes. You have to try it. Xxx
I'm impressed with this product. Because of the shape of my upper lip and my habit of pressing my lips together, no liner has ever worked at keeping my lipstick (of any formulation) in place. I tried this with Ruby Woo today, and I can't believe it but my lipstick has not moved. Because my lips get dry easily, after 3 hours, my lips feel kinda parched. However, Ruby Woo has turned into a beautiful stain as opposed to a migrating mess! My lips love this product: it is most certainly NOT just another lip balm. It truly makes color stay! One coat seems to be enough: with more, the color of my lipstick gets diluted. I also like the packaging: the narrow slanted stick is the perfect shape and size to fill in my lips accurately and easily. Make sure your lips are in the best condition possible before you put this stuff on: it is not conditioning or hydrating. It is also not drying.
I had very low expectations with this one. I did not really expect to do anything other than maybe make my lined lips appear even worse. I bought it because I desperately needed something to help me apply the red MAC Matte lipsticks and I bought this on sale. Well, I honestly think I can never be without this one now. It makes the matte lipsticks application go so much smoother and easier and actually prevents my lips from drying up. I love this, I really do!
this is actually quite a nice product.,it feels good, smells okay and seems to do what it promises. however, i find it annoying to add an extra step to my routine, i prefer just applying my lipstick or lipgloss directly to my lips to save time and effort. to me it is just not worth the extra step. i will however use up the one i have now.
