Overall, a decent product. Pros: it's a lightweight lotion primer with SPF 50. The SPF is the whole reason I bought it. The texture is light, spreadable, goes on very smooth and doesn't pill. Huge bonus: this product layers so well with my other skincare products, and all I have to do is use this on top, and it does the job of 3 products in one (lotion/primer/SPF). Cons: like some other …Read more

Not for oily skin types. Does not help foundation last. My skin is oily after an hour with this primer.

I seriously have no clue why it works so amazing for me, but it makes any foundation I use look and last 10x longer. It's the best primer I've ever tried. I have an oily t-zone and this controls the oil and smooths my skin. I just adore it. If you are on the fence about buying it, just go to Mac and ask for a sample =)

Very good sun protection product. Appreciate the fact make up does sit well on it. Does not leave a grease film like many other products with SPF.

I used to love this primer before the formula changed. I really don't care about the spf, MAC. So, if you are listening, please bring back the original formula-it was AMAZING-matte, soft-looking, pore-concealing, makeup retaining, etc. Also, if any MakeupAlley-ers have a great dupe for the old MAC formula, please message me. I have tried so many different primers, and none hold a candle.

I feel I should preface this with normally I am a fan of pretty much all things MAC but this, this was just not good.

I bought this twice in my MAC lifetime. The first time I bought it the product was amazing! It went on like a dream, my foundation sat really well and it lasted forever.

When I was finally out of the package I went to MAC to buy another one, and I'm …

The old formula was by far the best primer/oil control product on the market! 12 hours in the Vegas heat, and my makeup was perfectly in place without a ray of sun burn. To my horrid dismay, MAC reformulated it after the new FDA guidelines on sunscreen labeling was released. I even called the MAC company to beseech the return of this item. As a physician, I only wear barrier sunscreen with zinc …Read more

I bought this a few months ago as a recommendation from the MUA at my local MAC store, and when she used it in combination with their Studio Sculpt foundation, my dry skin looked dewy and revitalised. I bought both products, however over the next month I began to develop a lot of acne on my chin, cheeks and around my nose that I didn't have before. As an experiment for the last two weeks I …Read more

Do not use this primer if you have combination/oily skin. It feels great at first but then within one or two hours it gets so gross and greasy. I love the fact that it has a high SPF, but I think it is designed for dry skin only. I've never tried the old formula but I would not repurchase this.

I used to LOVE this primer years ago and it was my HG, then they changed the formula. I have absolutely nothing nice to say about the new formula. Avobenzone and oxybenzone will be irritating for most skin types. I have no idea what MAC was thinking changing from a mostly physical ss primer to a chemical one.
