I have been using skin primers now for many years. I have tried a few different brands however over the last year I have stuck to a favorite. There have been Advancements over the years, so it was time to mix it up. I decided to try MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Skin for the face and MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye Primer.
MAC Prep + Prime Skin works great at prepping the skin for foundation and creating smooth and velvety base. MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Skin makes an excellent base coat for makeup. It said to be an “An ultra-fluid lotion formulated with special-effect silicones.” Like most primers, it calms and soothes the skin keeping away extra oil thus improving the application of foundation.
A primer prepares the skin for the application of makeup.
The MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Skin Primer leaves skin silky smooth and creates a subtle luminous effect. Something I haven’t seen in other primers. The packaging was up there. A black pump applicator which was small and compact giving you control over the amount of product you desired. As the product is applied to your face, it created a silk life effect and is very smooth. Afterward, my makeup applies beautifully. It also lasts the better part of a day.
The MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye Primer was a new experience for me. I had not used an eye primer. I am ensured that it would help my problem with makeup slipping into the creases under my eyes. The result of this primer was that my concealer outlasted my foundation. It was awesome however I did still have the creases. No biggy however as the wrinkles are due to my use of concealer and powder and if I fix those, this product will be a dream.
This MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye Primer was also helpful on the lid, and I didn’t get that line where the foundation or eye shadow sinks into the crease of your eye. A common problem for some women and I am pleased there are longer lasting solutions. My eyeshadow looked great at 6 pm thanks to the MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye Primer
In summary, I feel that I would buy the MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Skin and Vibrancy Eye Primer again. It delivered similar results to my previous products however MAC holds a bigger range of connecting primers that work well together such as the skin and eye primer I have tried and only time will tell if the results improve.
Being my first ever time using an Eye Primer I was impressed, and even though I just added another product to my bathroom cupboard, I’m asking myself why it wasn’t earlier.
