The packaging of this primer is really nice, thus the one lippie. I appreciate that this product has a pump; however, the primer itself just did not work for me. I use the Prep+Primer Face Protect SPF 50 and love it. My only complaints are the packaging and wanting the option not to have SPF for photo purposes. I thought this would be a good fit, but there was absolutely nothing wonderful about this. My face became oily after using this and I have normal-to-dry skin. This caused my makeup to look like a big mess and completely transfer onto anything near it. After 3 uses, I returned this to MAC. I'm now using Smashbox as a photo-ready primer, but still love the P+P SPF 50 - even if it doesn't have a pump.

Love this! I was always weary of primers, since every one I tried seemed to flake/peel off and just always turned into a mess within an hour or so. I tried this in Vegas and absolutely loved it! It lasted through New Year's Eve and plenty of other nights partying. It makes my skin so soft, and everything looks even more amazing with it on. I will even wear it alone over my moisturizer and it still makes my skin look great. Worth the price, especially since just one pump will cover my entire face/neck for the whole day/night.

I was so dissappointed. First off, i didnt notice till recently that this primer has tiny little shimmers in it! I DESPISE that, i hate having shimmers all over my face. Second, it made me really oily afterwards, doesnt that defeat the whole purpose of a primer? Or is it just me? But on a good note, sorta, it keeps my face makeup on for a good 4 hours i'd say, but not long enough, cause i need it to last a good 6-8 hours! My other primers does the job fine, just not this one..

I just like the idea of having something over my face before i use my foundation & this seem to do the job well! I have quite good skin, so i do go without this too sometimes. It does help to create a smoother face to work with. It is NOT a HG for me but it does help to keep my foundation on.


Great packaging, easy to use pump bottle which is great. (:

Bought this product based on youtube recommendations and I have to say for me atleast, it's overrated. The product feels great on the skin when applied, but after my day at work, my Studio Tech foundation was sliding off my face. And I have a desk job, so no physical moving of any kind there. But this definitely did not work for me. I heard this was great to put on pimples though. Dries it out and decreases the size of the bump. I tried it and it does work for that.

I didn't like the sparkles on it, this shit also gave me a burning sensation, i thought i was the only one who had this problem, or maybe it was just my imagination...made my make up cakey after a while and it broke me out...it sucks and it is really expensive...MAC just rules with eyeshadows

I love this product. It feels amazing on my skin and it makes my foundation look great throughout the day. Sometimes I even wear this without foundation just because I love how soft it makes my skin feel! My only complaint is about the pump - mine just broke off one day and now I scoop it out with a Q-tip.

Love this product. Love how easy it is to apply. Love the pump and the feel on my skin, actually the fact that you don't feel it :) Really makes a difference in applying your foundation evenly.

This product is really super! When I use it, my make-up stays perfect many hours. My advice is - If u have a dry skin, use under moisturizing cream, u will feel your skin is softer. Thats told me a shop-assistent from MAC and on my own experience I have to agree. Texture seems moisturizing enought, but its only a seem. After few hours u will find your skin quite dry:(
I am kind of girl who is never without make-up in company with her boyfriend, so I often go asleep without cleaning my face. But in morning my make-up is still beautiful (almost) as before - after 8 hours with face in pillows this prep-prime let my make-up from 90% on my skin and still looking very very good. Without this prep-prime and using the same kind of make-up, it never looked so good. Thats the reason I can really recommend this product...
