MAC Cosmetics - Matte face primer 25ml


Product description

Item No. 1234437025

A matte-ifying cream that acts like a powder, MAC matte adds a sheer, no shine matte texture in one smooth layer. May be used on bare or made up skin. Use a latex sponge or a 252 large shader brush to apply over the entire face or in the T-zone to reduce the appearance of shine. Apply MAC matte after moisturiser, but before foundation to prime the skin for make up. 'Studio Fix' powder plus foundation applies smoothly and effortlessly over top of MAC matte. Apply MAC matte to eyelids before applying eye shadow or paints to help increase the longevity of the make up and reduce creasing.

Matte face primer 25ml is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little goes a long way! I've always been obsessed with anything matte! Especially when it comes to primer since it definitely makes an impact on the finish of the foundation and matte foundation is always a top choice of mine! This primer feels very smooth after application and keeps my foundation on during the day so a good price for a great product! I feel like it could be silicone based as it feels very thick and almost slightly oily. If it was oily free then would be perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the mattest of primers I've only used this primer like 3 or 4 times and so far I can say it doesn't do a great job in keeping my combination skin matte. It's silicone based so is quite liquidy and oily like. But it's not a bad primer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Helps a little but not enough I bought this hoping to control my excessive oily skin and have matte looking skin. Excessive meaning I need to blot my face every couple of hours to remain shine free or small amount of shine. The product does help a little but I still need to blot my face every couple of hours otherwise my skin will be shiny/greasy looking. I appreciate that most people don't have such oily skin so this product may be enough to keep shine away but unfortunately for me it only makes a small difference so next time I will try another product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I enjoyed Randomly bought this as a trial to see if it would stop shine on my face without reading any reviews. I only wear this product to go out with studio fix fluid foundation by Mac too, but it does what it says my face doesn't shine, and it keeps my make up on, and on the plus side you only need a small amount to cover your face so would last a while. Would buy again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for men! Bought this to keep my excess oil under control. It is amazing and I highly recommend it to men who has got a combination to oily skin. I apply it once, in the mornings, before my daily skin moisturiser and it keeps the excess sebum under control for most of the day. I give it four stars only because I would've liked it to last a bit longer (about 6 to 7 hours on my skin). It is a good product to use and definitely not just for the girls! Every man should have this in their bathroom cupboard!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't last for long. I have very oily skin & I found that around an hour or two after applying this product that my T-zone was shiney. It is good for those first couple of hours, but I would highly recommend instead the Prep & Prime Refined Zone - this keeps my shine at bay practically all day & keeps my T-zone looking matte. Would also recommend Studio Fix Fluid liquid foundation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good primer Bought this with Mac Matchmaster foundation and it works well together. Didn't feel too shiny or had to touch up too much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from :( Don't think it made much of a difference to my oily face. My face isn't extremely oily but even after using the this product it was still the same so now i have to invest more money in mac studio fix fluid and the blotting powder to see if i get any luck with that :(.
