An ultra-fluid lotion formulated with special-effect silicones. Calms and soothes the skin, blots away excess oil, and evens out skin redness. Improves the laydown and application of foundation or powder.
✨I received a deluxe miniature of this with my Mac order and I love it! The formula is really creamy and feels gorgeous on your skin, without it being oily or greasy. When applied, it makes your skin feel baby soft, with a perfect base to apply your makeup. Whilst it didn’t do a lot to hide my pores, it did reduce the appearance of any redness and blemishes. It definitely increased the longevity of my makeup and ensured my foundation didn’t budge or go patchy. This product is great if you have oily skin as although it is creamy, it doesn’t give any shine and boots away any excess oil. Love it!

I am in my late 20's/early 30's with combination, medium tone skin and green eyes. My hair is medium brown, combination with fine texture.
I have normal /spot prone skin and this primer feels moisturising on me, fills in my pores if I pat it in, helps my foundation stay all day & night and is affordable compared to most high end primers. I'm still on a bottle that I got in march last year so a good 9/10 months use. I only use 2/3 pumps which does my whole face and sometimes down on my neck. Will deffo be repurchasing !

This primer is just, meh. It comes out like a lotion which I don't like in a primer. It doesn't really smooth over bumps or improve the application of foundation. It makes my skin quite oily a few hours after use and it settles into my laugh lines so I feel like I have to keep a straight face all day, otherwise I'll be paranoid about the lines. Sigh. Still looking for a HG primer.

This is my daily primer and it works perfectly! My makeup stays on all day without wearing off and This is perfect as I have very sensitive skin and can be quite oily. I don't need to use a lot either which is perfect for me! It also moisturises my skin leaving it smooth.

This product is one of the most effective primers I have ever used. I have very sensitive skin which can sometimes be very oily which would remove my make up throughout the day but ever since I purchased this product my make up can stay on all day still feeling and looking flawless. It gives a silky finish without using a lot. This is an item which should be in your make up bag for all skin types!

This is an amazing product! it not only primes the skin, it moisturizes,evens out skin tone and illuminates the skin! creates an amazing base for any make up, also is good a lightening a foundation which may be too dark.. also insures your make up will stay on, worth the money also!

This is one of the most effective primers I have used. I apply this under my foundation to give it a nice glowing finish. The places where my makeup usual slides doesn't budge either. One pump is all I need for my whole face making this very good value unlike other primers I have used in the past.

This does cost quite abit.but its the brand your paying for I love mac products most things I love.this is ok dont need lots has a bit of sparkle in,but with foundation you cant see at all.just looks dewy.nice and smooth make up goes on better.it helped my make up stay on abit longer.but I do think it all depends on your skin type and what make up your putting on.

After my last primer left my skin oily and breaking out, I opted for this. On a plus note, it did not have the same effect, however, it did make my skin almost flaky in places, giving me an especially dry looking forehead. The price is reasonably expensive, and it didn't seem to last very long. I did like the tiny sparkles, but I'm still not fully convinced this was all that great.

I applied this at 8am, left it for 5 mins and then applied my Mac base. It went on smooth, my skin felt super soft, base went on beautifully and I was buzzing because one pump was all I needed for my whole face. By midday I noticed my makeup had gone grainy around my mouth. I have never seen makeup do this! I was mortified! I had high hopes for this primer but sadly it hasn't worked for me.

I gave it 2 stars for the smooth consistency and no fragrance. The product is quite expensive for what you get, and I found that it made my skin very dry and peely on my nose and cheeks (!) half way through the day (even though I have oily skin there).

This is interesting really, as the texture is lumpy and white, but glides on like a mousse! i was sent this, and it really does help with makeup longevity, but it does make my skin a little oily :/ I personally wouldn't say its worth the money, as there are equally as good ones for half the price :0 oh, this reduces redness and moisturising too :D

I hate this. The consistency is good and it makes my skin feel nice and soft but i just found that it doesnt at all make my makeup stay in place, i still get just as oily and my make up still becomes uneven during the day. It has a bit of shimmer in it also but its not noticeable once you have applied foundation. Its quite expensive and definitely not worth the money. I wont be buying it again.

My skin is naturally dry and very sensitive. This product is GORGEOUS on my skin!! It doesn't irritate my skin and has a very silky feel! One pump seems to be enough for the whole face and bottle is quite big so your getting quality aswell as quantity. I wear under concealer however could be worn on its own too. 100% Recommend!
