Review: MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage..



Since we're on the topic of primers, I thought this would be a good opportunity to review the primer that I'm currently using.

"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 can honestly say that I agree with every claim (apart from "evens out skin redness" as I do not suffer from this) that MAC has made about this primer. 

I use this primer after moisturising but before my foundation application and I must say that it is a crucial step in my foundation routine as it leaves me with a flawless finish when my makeup is complete. As soon as it is applied, my skin instant looks smooth and it most definitely makes me glow. The primer has small light reflecting particles in it which makes your skin look very radiant and healthy. 

Once you've put this on, you'll want to keep touching your face because of how smooth is feels! 

When I've run out, it doesn't feel right and I don't feel comfortable when I don't use this primer because it really does makes that much of a difference.

Packaging:
The only thing I find annoying is the packaging. It comes in a black opaque bottle and you can never tell when you're about to run out until it does.

It has a pump which dispenses a good amount of product so you are never actually wasting any. 
I normally use two pumps for my whole face.

Price:
The retail price for this product is £18 for 30ml/1.0 us fl oz. At first it seems quite expensive but it is actually good value for money because it lasts about 6months; well for me anyway.

Availability:
This primer can be purchased from anywhere that sells MAC products. Click here to check it out on the MAC website.

Overall Thoughts:
Overall I think this product is great to have if you're looking to achieve that flawless look. You will benefit from this a lot especially if you have visible pores, fine lines or uneven skin texture because it really does help the skin to appear much smoother. Not only can it be worn under your makeup but for those who do not wear foundation, this product can also be used alone making your natural skin look very healthy, smooth and radiant.

As it is a primer and is silicone based, blending of makeup is much easier and it helps your makeup last much longer than it usually would if you were not to use a primer. It also helps control oil so your face stays shine-free for much longer.

I will say that not everyone will like this primer due to the light reflecting particles even though they are very small and not that noticeable once your foundation is on but it does make you look radiant. I guess it's a matter of preference really.

Has anyone else tried this primer? If so what are your thoughts?
