    Works Well with Foundation, Pretty Good with BareMinerals

    I really like this primer because of its high SPF. I have an oily Tzone and this primer goes on wet, seemingly oily, but dries nicely. It works pretty well when I use Lancome foundation with Clinique powder, but just OK when I decide to use BareMinerals for the day. — 6 years, 9 months ago

    MAC Prep + Prime SPF 50

    I love this product. This preps my face for tinted moisturizer/powder and creates a velvety canvas. I can't comment on how it compares to other primers since I haven't used any (like Smashbox, which is obviously very popular). Frankly I wouldn't bother with primer except this has SPF 50, which I love because I have very pale skin so the extra step seems worth it. A great way for pale girls to protect their skin and make it look fabulous at the same time. — 6 years, 10 months ago

    Wonderful!

    I have melanoma and have to be very careful about sun exposure. This product is absolutely wonderful, and I only wish more products went this high on their SPF. Works well with all makeup products, not just M.A.C., and is an absolute every day staple for me. — 6 years, 11 months ago

    Staple in my makeup kit!

    I've been using this product every day since it came out and I absolutely love it. It's a light lotion that sinks in easily and doesn't make me break out or feel all greasy. I'm not sure that it dramatically increases the wear of my foundation, but it does improve the look of my skin, so much so that I know I've started using less foundation since using it both because I feel I need it less and ...read morebecause it makes my liquid foundation work more "efficiently". It makes my skin look softer and more even. For this reason, I even use it on days where I skip foundation. The high SPF in this is really great too. I went to Disney World last August and wore this in lieu of a traditional sunscreen on my face and I didn't get a sunburn (or tan) all week long. That's quite a feat considering I was sweating profusely and that I'm fairly pale and prone to burning. Most sunscreens irritate my face, causing my skin to itch, burn or flush, but I can't feel this on at all after application. Great product! I'll keep buying it for as long as MAC makes it! — 6 years, 11 months ago

    Great for protecting your skin!!

    I absolutely love this sunblock! I have oily skin and when I apply this on my face, it doesn't leave behind any residue or make my skin more shiny. This primer is weightless and does not compromise the look of your make up at all. This is perfect to wear during the day. It's easy. Just apply the primer liberally and then wait about a minute to let it set into your skin. Afterwards, apply your favo...read morerite compact or foundation. For best results, use MAC's blot powder throughout the day to minimize your oily skin if you have it. — 6 years, 11 months ago
