User Review: Trendyindc on MAC Prep & Prime

User Review: Trendyindc on MAC Prep & Prime

When I posted about MAC Prep & Prime, I hadn't yet tried it out. I still haven't, but after reading Trendyindc's review, I know what's next on my shopping list. Her user review makes it nearly impossible to keep from rushing out to buy it this minute. Here's her review:

As with most MAC products, you can tell the difference right away. I only had to use two tiny dabs to cover my face and got great coverage. I love that it is all one easy step (moisturizer and SPF) plus the oil control that doesn't interfere with my foundation.

I'm on my second day of using it, and for someone who lives in a humid climate, with oily skin, I now can go the whole work day without worrying about major ruboff and turning into a puddle. Great product, and I have a feeling the tube will last me through the summer!

Sounds good, yes? I want to hear about which products you love and don't love. Write your own reviews in the Beauty Product Junkies group, and I might post yours on BellaSugar too.

Does anyone know if this is available in Australia? The lack of an ozone layer makes the sun really strong & harmful so the SPF 50 along with a moisturiser and primer would be AMAZING!!

i recently bought the mac prep and prime and i love it! before i used this product i'd feel really oily by noon. Now my face feels pretty good all day, and i have super oily skin. i would definately recommend it if your thinking about buying it.

mimi0366, My skin is an oil slick as well and I live in south Georgia. I have found that using i.d. bareVitamins skin rev-er upper, letting it "dry" for a minute or two and following it with bareVitamins PRIME TIME foundation primer that I get VERY good results with the Bare Escentuals powder foundation, but my skin isn't sensitive at all. They were $21 (or something like that)each at a local hair salon that is licensed to sell that brand. You might wanna check them out if you haven't already. Until I used the PRIME TIME, the results weren't good.

I hope this works for everyone! I have this as well but it did absolutely nothing for me. I work in NYC where the subways in the summer are like a descent into hell. I mean it's HUMID! AND I have an oilspill on my face like 10 secs after I wash so I have extremely oily skin as well. I posted on this a couple of times, but for anyone who doesn't want to spend that much, try Milk of Magnesia. It truly works. Prep & Prime is cool though because it makes your skin feel very soft & your makeup look better, but does absolutely nothing for oily skin like mine.

i love skin primers. my grandmother bought the bare escentuals - bare minerals thing and it came with that great skin prepper (only thing i use from the pack). i have really dry skin and just put it under my super-moisturizer and it feels and looks great. however, i looove teh sound of this and may go out and purchase some...

I bought this product but now I'm scared to try it on my whole face. Two days after I tested it on my chin at the store, I had two giant zits. :/

prep and prime eye primer is also awesome... i'm addicted to mac eyeshadow and putting this on underneath really helps the product last - especially the really shimmery ones that seem to disappear over the course of a day. it also wakes up my eyes if i am running out of the door and don't have time to wear shadow. http://www.maccosmetics.com/templates/products/sp.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY18348&PRODUCT_ID=PROD7955

I like Prep and Prime but I hate MAC skin products bc they make me break out. I only use MAC eyeshadow and lipglass.

I went out and bought this, too - it's AWESOME! Highly recommended! The dispenser is great, too - just don't squeeze too hard or too much comes out. A little goes a long way with this.
