My Review And Personal Opinion

Starting with the texture, it’s quite different from the primers I have tried normally they are thicker while this one has a more lighter creamy one, when it comes to application this one also is smoother and easier and faster to apply all over the face, it leaves a nice moisturising sensation plus a lovely natural glow. 

Now when it comes to foundation I don’t use a lot of product, there is nothing worst that a cakey look less is more so I go for a classy make up look and good primer has to do the job of keeping than little amount of foundation up for hours and this new MAC primer managed to do the job, probably because it has the moisturising properties it did help on avoiding the rest of my make up of start creasing, it makes looks more natural. Another things that I always look on primers is to get uniform skin tone, I have an issues with pigmentation and irregular texture on my skin so I always need to fix that before jumping to the foundation because the difference is huge and this product helped in that area.

So far I’m quite content with the results and I would probably repurchase it.
