I would repurchase this product again and again. It made my skin smooth and prepped my skin perfectly for makeup. I didn't have touch up during the Summer! It's great. My oil held up well until about the 6th hour. Nonetheless, it's a great primer. The price may be high, but you only need a tiny amount to get the job done.

It's light and makes my skin so smooth for applying makeup. It makes my makeup stays on for the whole day even in summer! It's a tad expensive for such a small amount but you only need a little bit for each application. I'll definitely repurchase.

This product is great! It's a lotion, so it goes on light, and the pump bottle makes it very easy to get the product out - no wastage. If you think you want to get the spf one, dont, it's a cream and very heavy compared to this, i made that same mistake, and am now waiting for it to finish so i can buy this again!

this product, I thought hey its mac it`ll be great! I was so wrong. It makes my face so oily and I have pretty dry skin, Also it burns my face. My friend had the same problem and I dont feel it does anything for my foundation. ive used it only twice. Hopefully its good for someone out there!

This product is not what i look for in a primer. There is a shimmer to it, and with a primer i want pure. It also seems to keep the skin a little moist. Overall, i think it's a nice moisturizer when not applying anything else on top. :)

Im still really undecided about Prep + Prime. It makes my liquid foundation go on super smooth and flawless (before it was cakey) but the oil control sucks. If im outside and its hot out, or im walking around a lot, the makeup comes off in random places so its all splotchy. Not a good look. If im just sitting around, or its cool out, my foundation lasts and looks flawless even 14+ hours later. I probably wont buy again since its expensive and it only works certain times

Overall, this is a good primer. It preps the skin for makeup and soothes any redness. I took off one lippie because it could have better oil control properties. Other than that, its a decent primer. I have bought more than once, and will continue to rebuy when I run out. I don't use it every day..only when I am having 'problem' skin days because it controls flakiness and like I said before--soothes discolorations.

This is just a decent primer. I don't love it or hate it. I just feel that it is so expensive for the tiny amount of product that you get. Also, I hate that you can't see through the container to keep track of how much you have left. I can't get the bottle open either. I would prefer my Smashbox primer or even the Monistat chafing gel.

I love this primer, I've used a lot of them and although I don't think this works miracles or anything, it is my favorite primer. I have very oily skin and most primers make that worse, this one helps. It's makes my studio fix powder go on super smooth and last, it doesn't break me out, and it can be used with moisturizer with making my skin my oily than normal. I think it's great and I'm surprised the reviews aren't better.

Not a fan. Product was not easy to apply and spread. I had to use several pumps to distribute evenly over my skin (applied to clean, moisturized skin). My skin felt smooth after application, but did not make my foundation go on any easier. I am going back to good ol' Monistat Chafing gel primer.
