I don't hate this product, but I don't love it that much either. Its texture is liquid with tiny sparkles. It's easy to apply and the skin instantly becomes smoother. It does help when applying the foundation and keeps it in place for the day. It also tends to minimise pores. And the tiny sparkles are in fact barely noticable, especially under the foundation, and don't make your face shine too much. It doesn't break me out either.
But the one problem that bothers me is that it doesn't really keep my face matte. I have combination skin and very oily T-zone. My face becomes shiny after 2 or 3 hours with this primer just like other primers which are cheaper. And though the black bottle looks cool, you can't know how much product you have left, which is not convenient at all.
I'd probably not recommend it or repurchase it immediately as I tend to try some other primers before eventually returning to this one.

This is an amazing primer, but due to the price I save it for special occasions. My makeup lasts AGES with this primer. Seriously, I have worn this under liquid plus powder foundation and not taken my makeup off until 16 hours later and my makeup was still perfect, after sweating buckets in a hot club for hours. Love it. I like my primers to give a really smooth finish to the skin, which this doesn't do as well as others, but for the lasting power it is a huge winner. Shame I have to pay $45AU for it though!

This is a lightweight face makeup primer. It is transparent on the skin, lightweight and very soothing to the touch. I really like this product as it keeps my face in place all day and is completely sheer.
The primer spreads evemly. It does not alter the finish of my foundations or blushes. In short, it does its job well.

I want to give a warning that if you have sensitive skin DO NOT use this primer. My skin has been clear for about a year now- using this completely ruined that. I broke out from this product like no tomorrow. However, if you don't have acne prone skin this is a good primer- very smooth & a lovely base for foundation. But, I won't sacrifice my face for a breathing pizza.

As the name suggests it literally preps your skin ..On application I can feel the difference almost immediately... my skin feels smooth as if it has been evened out. I also love the scent.. a light fragrance. I feel like I dont even need SPF or moisturizer altho the MUA didnt recommend that. My makeup lasts all day. The packaging is travel friendly. I would definitely re-purchase

Undecided when it comes to this primer. On the plus side it is very smooth, goes on well. However, it has shimmer/glitter in it (why?!), I am not sure how good it is at making my makeup last longer. I don't think it really helps in smoothing out skin. Will definitely be sampling out other primers before purchasing this again.

This is by far the best primer I've tried. Other formulas have been too drying, too oily, or just without any benefit that I've noticed. This
stuff goes on like a mattifying moisturizer, sinks in fast, has a pleasant, not overwhelming smell, and really does seem to make my concealor last FOREVER. My only gripe is that the pump always spits out too much product, like, twice as much as a I use. Oh well.

This primer has some really strong downfalls which are hard to ignore!
Packaging is lovely and has handy pump bottle
Feels smooth once applied
Helps to slightly illuminate skin (slight shimmer which can't be seen under makeup)
Hydrates the skin just a touch, helping foundation to glide on slightly better upon application
but here come the significant CONS:
Is ridiculously expensive (especially in Australia)
Does nothing for the staying power of my foundation!! (Laura Mercier Silk Creme)
Doesn't last long as long as I'd hoped
Wouldn't repurchase, it's worth searching around for other primers and giving this one a miss!

I bought this because I didn't know what else to get. I needed something that would moisturize and prep my face more than my usual lotion routine. Its not the worst product but its not something that I feel I HAVE to repurchase - as of now. I feel like there is better out there.
Makes face feel silky for a couple minutes
Makes foundation look pretty & even (but not that big of a difference without it)
Sometimes itches my face
EXPENSIVE for the amount given
Returned it back to MAC, absolute hated it for my dry skin. Made no difference... I think it actually made things worse. Still looking for a good primer.

The MAC sales assistant conviced me and my Mum that this primer is best for oily skin and will stop oiliness as well as keep makeup on all day/night. However, it doesn't really stop the oiliness at all and it was very expensive for such a small bottle, but it does keep makeup on and makes skin silky smooth. I am not sure weather you're able to use this as an eye primer, but I do anyway to save another 50 dollars for 10 grams of a product haha
