I'm not sure whether or not I'm using this product correctly, but I seem to be having a lot of issues with it. I bought it to see if it might keep products from sinking noticeably into my vertical lip lines while extending the wear-time. So far, I think it's extended wear time very slightly but caused some other issues (see below). I've tried it under a MAC lipstick, a MUFE lipstick, and a Lancome lipstick, and I'd say it really only worked properly with the MUFE lipstick. I wore it under MAC's "Girl About Town," and while it extended the wear, the pigment separated and sunk into my lips in a way I had not experienced previously with the color. I had a similar issue when I wore it under a Lancome Le Rouge Absolu (Rose Petale). The Lancome lipstick is on the older side, so it's possible that's why the pigment separated, but when a MAC lipstick separates over a MAC prep product, I think it's fair to be suspicious.The product smells fine (though it does have a smell), and it feels nice on the lips. I sometimes notice a faint chemical-y taste, but it's difficult to pinpoint whether or not that's from the primer itself, given that I'm always using it with another product. Regardless, this product hasn't really accomplished what I'd hoped it would accomplish, so I can't give it very high marks. I will keep experimenting and report back if I find a better way to use it.

I have to say,after suffering from dry lips for years and having to run on constant balms which takes away my lipstick colour, this is fantastic!... I love matt lipsticks, though they can cause dry lips (and especially liquid lipsticks -beware folks!)... I put this on before my lippy, wait about 20 seconds til it goes tacky, then apply my Mac matt lipsticks... they just glide on with no dragging... and my lips stay so soft, no need for balms... it keeps my lippy on all day and my lips feel so comfortable. I've already stocked up on them... I always worry that now I've found something so good they'll go and discontinue it or something!!!! Normally just my luck. Fantastic and really works - reasonable price too.

I went through two tubes of this, and I have to say, it really works. It adds to the life of your lipstick and smooths as nicely as any balm. No cons, except for the company's animal testing policy. I wish MAC were cruelty free.

This is the most amazing lip product I have ever purchased. It gets your lips ready for color and keeps them hydrated even when using drying matte shades. I love love love this product and literally can't go anywhere without it. You will not be disappointed! Hugs!

My muse - Mary Kay TimeWise Age-Fighting Lip Primer helps tomaintain the soft, smooth and supple appearance of the skin thanks to Sunflower Seed Oil. Additionally, this lip primer also contains antioxidants that help protect the skin from the effects of free radicals generated by the environment :).

Ok, I was really skeptical of this thing. It looked like some weird hot glue gun stick in a lipstick case and I was like, "That's way too much to pay for some weird looking vaseline glue."But this thing works.I was given one as a sample when i purchased a ridiculous amount of Mac lipsticks, and let me tell you when I was done I went back and purchased three more, as if they were gonna stop making them (yeah, seriously, I'm too impulsive), but once you try this, you'll be hard pressed to find something better unless you remember to use lip balm daily.Now normally I scrub my lips with sugar and honey beforehand, but in an emergency (accidentally forgetting date night and getting a reminder 15 minutes before I'm due at the restaurant) I just smear this stuff on, and then wait an agonizing 45 seconds before slathering on my lipstick.Despite the look of vaseline/glue stick, the texture is more 'giving'/pliable. It has some some oomph to it, as it it's notable when you put it on your lips and you can feel the coating, but it goes away pretty quickly when it dries.I really dislike how this thing looks, but i can't fault the formula or the job it does.This is not the best anti-feathering tool available, but you can get away with not using a lip liner as this does help prevent some bleeding (SOME, like if you drink half a cup of coffee, not the whole coffee).This stick lasts you ages, and ages, and ages, so be hygienic and keep it clean or else it will start getting icky, and the formula starts getting more 'greasier' (as it contaminates, formula breaks down due to bacteria) and you won't get such a good primer out of it.You can apply this over your already applied lipstick then go over it again, no need to wipe off your lipstick and start anew if you have dry lips but do note lipstick colour stain is not easy to get rid of from the actual stick itself.Anyway. That's it.Invest in this thing, there's lots of lip primers and conditioners, but this thing does what its namesake says: PREP. The prime is probably for marketing, because there's a lot of primers (for your face, eyes, even your eyelashes) but this is a prep tool. A good one.

I bought this, not knowing what to expect for a lip primer. Turns out, I love it! Especially with lip glosses (as I rarely wear lipstick). I wear lip gloss everyday. The MAC's Lip Prep+Prime smooths out the fines lines of my lips and the dry mini patches to let the gloss glide over my lips effortlessly and flawlessly. Plus, it holds my gloss longer throughout the day and it doesn't run neither. I absolutly recommend this lip primer, it is great and it makes my lips feel hydrated. I own the NYX Lip Primer in Nude and I by far prefer MAC's lip primer.

Okay, this is AWESOME. It makes those impossible lipsticks possible to use. It helps me to glide my matte lipstick (Ruby Woo) and stays in place for the whole night. The price is comparable to other brands but I am not going to try others because this one got me deeply.

I will not, can not, ever try another lip primer as long as Mac continue to sell this product. My matte lipsticks glide on effortlessly now and smooth. My lipliner goes on smooth. My Mac lipstick use to fade after 30 minutes before I discovered this product. I used this lip primer and my flat out fabulous retro Mac lipstick at 2:40 this afternoon.Here it is going on 7:25pm and yes...my lipstick is Still on virbrant and intact and not cracking. Omg. I just ate a homemade meatball sub and cinnamon roll and hot tea and yessss honey....my lipstick is Still on. It's amazing I never seen anything like this. The primer goes on silky like a chapstick. After 60 seconds it becomes more solid and concentrated and non sticky.still my lips feel hydrated 😕 without regular chapstick underneath. Then I apply my lipstick and my lipstick goes on so smooth and my matte lipstick dont have that crusty crack head look. I'm so happy with this product. For its performance, I don't think 16 is a lot I think it's cheap it's that good trust me.

Great lip primer if like me you love matte lipstick but find them too chalky and drying on the lips. The smooth clear stick provides just enough 'slip' to allow easy application of the matte lipstick without compromising the finish or the lasting power ( which is forever with a Mac matte!). I adore a matte red lip but hate the dry feeling on my lips so this primer has solved the problem at last. I haven't tried it with other formulas as I don't feel it's necessary.....but for a matte lip, it's essential!
