I would only give this one star because I hate sticky things in general. Before I discovered the Mac prep + prime natural radiance base primer I use to only use this product. I don’t recommend this to anyone who doesn’t like putting a sticky substance all over there face. I use to swear by this primer but I only found out I hated this product and I know longer use it.

This is my favorite face primer right now. I recommend using it as your moisturizer because it is very hydrating so great on dry skin. It evens out your skin tone as well as reduces fine lines. One to two pumps should be enough for a full face. Its a great prodct to have in your kit if you are working with mature clients.

The best primer!!! Shrinks down pores and fine lines while moisturizing and plumping up my skin! Not to mention it’s anti aging as well! I love the frosted glass packaging and the fact that you can lock the cap for travel. I just wish this primer wasn’t so expensive! $45 and I run through it quickly!

I love this primer it is super creamy and goes on very smooth. The packaging is so sleek and modern. I definitely like this primer but it is a little pricey. I am sure there are others that have similar affect for cheaper but I have to say I haven’t found one I like better yet!

I'm very surprised there isn't a larger hype around this product. It's great for those with dry skin, it is personally the only primer I will use. I'm Sold. Helps my makeup stay on all day, it makes me skin feel soft, even and moisturized. It's a steep price, but it lasts a long time!

If this isn't worth $45 I don't know what is. I've spent YEARS searching for a makeup routine to control the oil on my face.

I bought the Mac water weight foundation at a duty-free shop in the airport for next to nothing. I liked it really well for oil control but it tended to settle in my large pores and fine lines.

When I got to Denmark I met with a MAC rep and asked her opinion. She hands me this lotion and I remind her I'm looking for a primer. As we had a language barrier I was unconvinced that she was giving me the right product so she gave me a sample (I bought the bottle as well) and told me to bring it back for a refund if the sample was unsatisfactory.

Danish women, according to this rep, shied away from spending so much on makeup so she didn't understand that I was much less worried about the price than she was!

Long story short this stuff is amazing. I still use my vitamin C serum and then apply this. I use a pretty good amount as it doesn't goop up or anything, it just creates a smooth, but invisible, canvas. The MAC foundation looks even better than I could hope for. Using this, the foundation and the blot powder has totally brought my face under control.

Love this moisturizing primer especially now that the winter air is fighting hard with my normally dry skin. This product primes my face for a perfect and flawless makeup application.

As someone who truly loves MAC I can't say that as a primer this is amazing but as a moisturizer it does the trick.
After cleaning my skin I apply this as a last step. It does the job of a moisturizer in keeping my dry spots hydrated and my oily spots did not break through.
I definitely loved the texture of this product. My makeup did apply smoothly as well.
As for longevity, it was no different than any other primer product. I was also hoping it would help with keeping fine lines at bay as it did say it would help with a blurring affect. I did not notice this but it did an adequate job of helping with pore coverage. For the price however I have seen other products do the same with a lesser price tag.

Another favorite! This moisturizer HYDRATES! But not only that, but it can be used as a primer as well. It leaves your skin feeling luxurious! Fills in fine lines and large pores. I use this both with and without makeup. Why? Because of the ingredients that it has, it's key claim is to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, let me tell you... it worked for me.

This is a great product for people who have dry to normal skin, however if you have normal skin i would recommend putting on at night because this is a very powerful moisturizer. My normal skin tends to be more oily so I found this would end up breaking down my foundation and I had to stop using it because it was too much oil for my skin to handle, but i would recommend it if your skin is on the drier side.

I've seen people using this as a primer on YouTube. Is this good for oily skin? Has it caused any breakouts?
