Like how a pinch of salt can change the whole deal of a meal, the use of a primer can change the way how make up looks and feels on you. I consider the use of a primer extremely essential when it comes to make up. The MAC prep and prime skin base visage is one of my top favorite primers.
About the product:-
An ultra-fluid lotion formulated with special-effect silicones. Calms and soothes the skin, blots away excess oil, and evens out skin redness. Improves the laydown and application of foundation or powder.
It comes in a glossy black, plastic pump type bottle. Not a huge one, its small so it’s easy to carry it while travelling.
What I feel about the product:-
This is a product that I would rave about, the texture, finish and the way it works for various skin types is amazing. It’s basically a silicone based primer, with light reflecting particles (not over the top) which goes before your base makeup and it eases and extends the wear time of makeup. The consistency is like a cream, translucent on application goes super smooth, and makes foundation glide on over it like a dream. Finish wise it looks slightly dewy, but controls the shiny look on oily skin extremely well. In the kind of Indian climate I am living in, It extends the wear time of foundation like crazy. On brides it works like 5+ hours if your partially outdoors, and makes makeup stay on till you take it out if your completely indoors.
My usual routine is I go on with the primer and go with a powder foundation on a regular basis. It works great that way also. The quantity required for the whole face and neck would be two pumps, so little goes a long way.
I love the product so much that I don’t find anything negative about the product. I wouldn’t call the price factor high because nothing from MAC comes cheap. Try this primer and, I sure there wouldn’t be any looking back.
