Around 6-7 months back, I really had no idea about any kind of face primer except eye makeup primer base. One day I visited MAC counter in Shopper’s Stop ‘The Great India Place’, Noida, looking for a different kind of foundation for a glowing face with matte look. The Sales Girl introduced me to this MAC Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer Illuminateur De Tent SPF 35. When she applied the tester on my face, believe me ladies I fell in love with this product .Now, I am so accustomed to this product that it’s hard for me to step out without applying this primer on my face.
What MAC says about MAC prep + prime
MAC Cosmetic says-“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.”
My take on ‘MAC Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer Illuminateur De Tent SPF 35’
The product comes in a soft black tube with a small nozzle that helps in convenient usage. The color of the shade is shown at the front of the tube in form of a horizontal bar. The fact that I do not have to contaminate the entire content just to take out a pinch of it makes the packaging hygienic for me.
MAC prep + prime primer contains a little amount of shimmer but when I apply it on my face the shimmer gets indistinguishable that makes the application appropriate for both day as well as evening time. The soft texture blends well and makes the application of foundation way easier. Whenever I apply this primer I feel that my skin has a satin touch; I just love Mac prep and prime range, it adds a little extra moisture to my face without giving a greasy look. Every time I use it my confidence level boosts up 10 folds .
This primer can be used for every occasion be it a chick party or a casual meet. Also it goes perfectly both with makeup and without makeup. Office going ladies can wear it to keep their makeup fixed for whole day long. It does not need any touch up for up to 7-8 hours.
For the record, I have dry skin so MAC prep + primer does not cast even a little bit greasy look. I am not sure how exactly it will work on oily or combination skin tones. But for dry skin, definitely it is a great option.
How to apply ‘MAC Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer Illuminateur De Tent SPF 35’
Before applying foundation take a pinch of Mac prep + prime primer and apply onto face and neck area. Blend it well using gentle strokes, and then apply foundation and do your makeup as usual. Primer helps in keeping the makeup fixed and in illuminating dull skin.
Well ladies, I am sharing a little secret with you all: ( 😉 )I always apply primer after applying foundation. Doing so gives a flawless look to the skin and makes the skin more attractive. You can follow any of these methods- whichever you like. In this photo below I am wearing MAC prep+prime primer with negligible makeup.
