Most Helpful Positive

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

Most Helpful Criticism



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.
  1. Beautiful


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


    Expensive but worth the money makeup stays on all day
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. Does what it says


    This feels silky, and makes my makeup (powder) go on well, and holds up through the day
  10. 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!
  11. Wears well


    Great everyday primer, sits well under makeup, easy to apply and has a silky feel to it.
  12. 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 – redness, and my chin – acne scarring) gave the best coverage and the best results. Give it a try !
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Into It


    This is a really good primer, dries fast and helps my foundation set better into the skin.
  19. 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.
  20. Smooths


    Smooths skin for a nice makeup base but doesn’t wow me for the price
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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 out there now, which can truly make your skin look silky, so I probably wouldn't recommend this one given the other options out there.
  24. good product


    I've only just started using this product and so far really like the way it feels on my skin
  25. 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 every time. I did apply my makeup after and it did create a brilliant base for my foundation but was not worth the reaction my skin had. Would definitely recommend if you’re skin isn’t sensitive.
  26. Great


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


    I like the texture of this primer. This helps my foundation stay on longer
  28. 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
  29. 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
  30. Really good


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


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


    Lightweight but fills in and perfects skin ready for foundation!
  33. 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.
  34. Great


    Really great smoothing primer that adds radiance to the skin.
  35. 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
  36. 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.
  37. Not for dry skin


    Not great for my dry skin type, would only recommend for an oily skin who wants a matte finish.
  38. 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.
  39. Perfection


    This is perfection. Helps my makeup look better and blurs my imperfections.
  40. 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.
  41. 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!
