Prime Focus Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
mac prep and prime
An amazing product and a very good price for it, the product really does prep and prime your skin and gives you a perfect immaculate finish to your face if you use foundation. Also can be used without foundation and gives your skin a glow.
The product defo does what it says on the packet
It's my 1st time with Mac on recommendation fr my diva sister. I love it!!
This is my fourth pot of Mac Prep+Prime finishing powder. It is so light, doesn't give a heavy powdery look , just sets my foundation transparently. Very light textured and fine. Doesn't clog or look white. I only tear off half the protective sticker so that too much doesn't come out at once. I highly recommend this to every one who wears foundation, it gives a polished look and keeps looking good all day.
This product gave an overall lovely finish to my makeup. Takes away the shine whithout adding any unwanted orange colour on top. Would recommend this product
Life Saver - Use Daily
I'd managed to control my oil and shine but this gives me the confidence to know my makeup will look good throughout the day. I use NC15 foundation so I am pretty fair but this doesn't make me look too white. I use medium mineral natural powder first. I only peel the sticker covering the holes half way back until it's near empty as helps to keep it in the top part to apply to a brush. I used a wide loose brush which I suppose could be a body brush (it's not though it's just not a compact tight brush) to get the best coverage. This does what I hoped the blot powder would do.
The product itself is fantastic but the size for the price is were I was displeased.
This is the second pot I have purchased. The best finishing powder that I have ever used. Light, long lasting and does just what Mac says. Highly recommended
Ashy and unflattering.
Despite the powder being exceedingly fine-milled, it seemed to sit upon my skin no matter how I applied it. I am fairly pale (MAC NC15/20), and found that this made me appear ashy and almost ill-looking, despite only using a small amount. I have also used this when tanned and found that it completely washes me out, despite claiming to be 'one universal colour that suits all shades'. The packing of the product is also every impractical, causing mess and meaning that a large amount of the product is easily wasted.
The product is very disappointing, especially since I expected high things from this powder. It didn't help my make-up stay in place particularly well, and though it did intensely mattify, I found that the overall result when used was that of an ashy, cold, unappealing complexion. Worst powder used to date.
