Goes on really smooth and stays on all day. Really happy with this product.
  1. Luxurious and dewy


    I love this product, I use it everyday and it is the perfect primer for my foundation. Leaves my skin dewy and well hydrated highly recommend
  2. Very Happy with this Primer


    Initially received as a sample and liked it so much, went onto purchase. As it says, light weight texture, very smoothing on my skin, and does feel like a canvas for my makeup each day. Love the Mac Primer.
  3. Simply the best!


    Hands down - Best primer ever. Makes my skin look and feel super smooth. My makeup lasts all day. Love it!!!
  4. Used it for years


    I have used this for over 5 years and I love it. It’s moisturising and creates a beautiful smooth and dewy base for any type of foundation, BB cream or even tinted moisturiser. Definitely recommend.
  5. Great!


    Applies so much more smoothly and allows makeup to stay on my skin better without smudging. I love how this gives my skin a smooth and soft base.
  6. like it


    Goes on really smooth and stays on all day. Really happy with this product.
  7. Not sure


    There are better primers on the market for less price. I found this one to be way more glittery than I would like and didn't extend the wear of my foundation all that much.
  8. Great Product!


    My makeup seems to last the longest when I use this primer. This is one of my favourites as it isn’t heavy on the skin and made a noticeable difference in my finished makeup look.
  9. A great base


    I use MAC Studio Fix fluid and compact powder with great results, so wanted to see if their primer made a difference.
    A little goes a long way, and it gives a smooth base without feeling heavy. I have noticed an improvement with my foundation staying put throughout hot weather. 10/10 will purchase again.
  10. not my favourite primer


    its a really good primer but I prefer thicker primers to this one, I found this a bit too thin
  11. Okay depending on what you are looking for


    I didn’t realise when I purchased this product that it had sparkles/glitter in it. Don’t get me wrong, it is a fine glitter, however still glitter nonetheless. Once foundation is put on it isn’t as noticeable.

    I have naturally oily skin so this is not what I wanted, as I prefer a matte/satin finish. I could see this being good however for drier skin girls trying to achieve a glow from...

    Applies so much more smoothly and allows makeup to stay on my skin better without smudging.
  13. Works well but overpriced


    While I find that this primer works well, it's just overpriced for what it is. The ones by the ordinary are just as good and they are around the $10 mark. Just not sure that I'd by this one again given the price tag and the other options out there.
  14. One of the best primers


    I love this primer, it works so well, making my skin look and feel super smooth. The only downfall is that it's over priced.
  15. for everyday use

    perfecting skin]

    it is good for everyday use however i would not recommend it for a party. this does the job of smooth application of makeup but is not longwear.
  16. An oldie but a goodie


    This primer smoothes out the texture on my skin, helps to smooth out my pores, and helps my Mac foundation to sit nicer on the skin. No complaints
  17. I adore it


    I love this primer as it does whats advertised, fills in any large pores, evens my complexion and helps everything stay put longer. My only downside is my skin doesn’t like it when I use it reguarly, just blocks my pores a little too much even with a really deep cleanse.
  18. Beautiful


    Really nice primer, holds the foundation really well. Not ideal for dry skin though.
  19. Best primer


    Expensive but worth the money makeup stays on all day
  20. I like this primer a lot


    This is one of my favourite primers as it isn’t heavy on the skin and made a noticeable difference in my finished makeup look. My makeup seems to last the kindest when I use it too
  21. Nice


    It's a nice product to put under a pore filling primer. I'm not sure I notice a massive difference when wearing it, but it feels nice to apply and makes my skin more hydrated
  22. Smoothing


    I have been using this product for a while now i love it, it helps my foundation glide on smoothly and stay in place.
  23. great for all skin types


    by far my favourite primer, it suits my skin when its oily in summer and dry in winter. You don't need much either so it means it lasts for a long time which is great value for money! and it helps my make up wear for longer
  24. Perfect primer!


    I find this product is absolutely perfect for priming my face and getting it ready for makeup. I have definitely seen a huge difference in the way my makeup looks when I use it. I have even used it to set my makeup a couple times and it works like a dream! It also doesn’t make me breakout at all which is amazing as I have very sensitive acne prone skin! Definitely recommend!
  25. Does a great job


    I got this as a sample and will definately buy the full size. It sat well on my skin and was too shiny. Was comfortable and lasted the day. Good to wear alone as well.
  26. Does what it says


    This feels silky, and makes my makeup (powder) go on well, and holds up through the day
  27. Great buy!


    Feels really nice on the skin and it actually feels like it is nourishing my skin. Holds make-up well in place too!
  28. Wears well


    Great everyday primer, sits well under makeup, easy to apply and has a silky feel to it.
  29. Great primer!


    This is a beautiful light weight silicone based primer with a gel like consistency, meaning it glides easily over the skin masking any imperfections and smoothing out pores. Whether applied with your fingers or with a damp beauty sponge this product evens out the skin tone and helps mask my red cheeks. I found applying this product with a beauty sponge on those specific areas of concern (my cheeks...

  30. Glowy, velvety primer


    This primer gives a nice velvety feel to your skin before you put your makeup on. It has a slight shimmer to it so works to help with a glowy look.
  31. Holy grail


    This primer is so silky like a soft veil for your skin. It’s great for everyday and doesn’t break you out!
  32. Great everyday primer


    This is a great everyday primer, sits well under makeup, applies well and absorbs quickly. Makes makeup appear smoother and lasts longer over the day. The pump applicator does dispense a lot of product at once though, so I find I go through the bottles quite quickly.
  33. Love it!


    I think this is pretty damn good! I think MAC has to be one of my favourite brand because of it’s consistency with making good formulas no matter what the product is! This is no exception, give it a go if you can.
  34. Best Primer I've used


    Over the years I've used a lot of Primes before applying my Make up. from the best of the best to cheap ones.

    I find once applying this Primer my skin feels like silk. My makeup goes on so much smoother and so easy to spread. It also makes my make up last the whole day without having to touch up.
  35. Into It


    This is a really good primer, dries fast and helps my foundation set better into the skin.
  36. So-So


    Nice primer but not amazing. I use powder not liquid, not sure if that makes a huge difference, but sometimes it can make the powder sit funny depending on what coverage im going for.
  37. Smooths


    Smooths skin for a nice makeup base but doesn’t wow me for the price
  38. Luxurious primer, over priced though


    It works well, goes on smoothly and created the perfect base for foundation. I just found that it was highly priced, so I probably won’t purchase it again.
  39. Nice primer


    I haven't repurchased as I wasn't wowed by it especially for the price. It is nice and does the job but expected better
  40. Good but not brilliant


    I have combination skin so I like to use a primer to control oil and smooth out pores down the t section. This is a good, solid primer. There's nothing wrong with it...but then there's nothing fantastic about it either... It doesn't seem to impart a lot of 'radiance' as it promises but it does have a smoothing effect and controls oil to a degree. That said, there are a lot of really good primers o...

  41. good product


    I've only just started using this product and so far really like the way it feels on my skin
  42. Wouldn’t recommend for sensitive skin


    I was recommended this by numerous co workers and because I was already using majority of the MAC range at the time, I thought this would be great to add to my regime. Unfortunately, I have ridiculously sensitive skin and after the first try I felt a sort of stinging sensation and my skin didn’t take to it at all. I used it a few more times to make sure it wasn’t a one off, but the same result eve...

  43. Great


    Really like this as a primer. Helps the makeup stick and the 2 shades allow for colour balance
  44. Great


    I like the texture of this primer. This helps my foundation stay on longer
  45. Great Base


    Great base, reduces redness and feels nice and velvet-like. I find it works best with Mac Foundations and keeps them in place all night, I can find Mac foundations to be quite drying (I have combination/dry skin) and this creates a nice base layer between my skin and foundation
  46. Too dry


    I found that this primer made my skin look very dull and flat. Would be better for oily skin as opposed to dry skin like mine
  47. Really good


    This is a really good primer, dries fast and helps my foundation sit better.
  48. Softest primer


    This primer works wonders, been using for years. A little goes a long way, blends in perfectly.
  49. Great primer


    Lightweight but fills in and perfects skin ready for foundation!
  50. one of my faves


    this is one of my favourite primers, I think it was the first one I ever bought. It's comfortable on my sensitive skin and it gives a smooth finish and soft feeling to the skin. I do find it works best with M.A.C foundations.
  51. Great


    Really great smoothing primer that adds radiance to the skin.
  52. Prefer strobe cream


    I jumped on the primer bandwagon with this one, it's a nice product with a velvet feel and smells nice but if I had known strobe cream by MAC existed when I was purchasing this I probably wouldn't have. It's a nice product but I don't see myself purchasing it again over Strobe cream
  53. feels velvety


    gorgeous smoothing primer, it makes my skin look just the slightest bit more radiant and leaves skin feeling like velvet before the foundation goes on top.
  54. Not for dry skin


    Not great for my dry skin type, would only recommend for an oily skin who wants a matte finish.
  55. Nice and smoothing


    This primer leaves my skin feeling as smooth as velvet and blurs out pores and makes my makeup last a longer time! It feels super nice on the skin and is a great base for makeup especially if you're looking for a more matte base.
  56. Perfection


    This is perfection. Helps my makeup look better and blurs my imperfections.
  57. Perfect Primer


    Does such a great correcting job and really evens my skin tone so it’s perfect for applying foundation. Subtly illuminates without being too over the top.
  58. Favourite primer of all time!


    I have oily/combination and this is the only primer that works perfectly for me! Makes my skin smooth and adds the perfect amount of illumination that is also viable under foundation to prevent a flat looking foundation. Continuously repurchase this product!
