Two of my favorite MAC primers


Primer is used to create a flawless/smooth base for your make up. It is used underneath foundation to hold your make-up last longer and they blot away any excess oil on the skin. 

MAC PREP + PRIME Face Protect SPF 50

The reason I bought this product is, it has the highest SPF that I have found for the face on the market. And it also works as a good make-up base. This is my go to primer for the day and I have been using it every single day for over 2 years now. Few years ago, I had quite a few brown spots caused by the sun and infact I haven’t developed any since I started using this and my skin looks much clearer.

It  may feel a bit greasy at first but I think it soon sinks in, and is definitely worth it. Only use a little bit at once as it does take a lot of rubbing on to the skin, as it comes out very white. Only downfall in my opinion is, it can be quite wasteful. The tube is very hard to squeeze and I’m sure there will be lots of product left inside the tube when I think it’s all gone.


It  is very silky and feels light. I only use a tiny pea sized amount to cover my whole face. You cannot tell that the product is on your skin when it is rubbed in well.  After doing so, I apply my foundation which goes on smoothly and appears extremely flawless. The primer has small light reflecting particles in it which makes your skin look very radiant and healthy. 

 So there you go girls, if you have used or currently using above primers or any other primers, leave us your comments.

MAC Fix +

M6GXPersonally, I absolutely love this product and swears by it, love the fresh and radiant look it gives my skin. It’s very easy to use, bottle has a easy locking mechanism to stop spillage and accidental use.

I was amazed at the dewy finish it gave my face and it made my make-up last for a long time. Definitely adds radiance and refreshes the skin. It’s almost like water but has a lovely smell to it and according to MAC has vitamins and minerals, as well as green tea and chamomile. The key is to get an even distribution, if you spray too much, it will drip off the face. It is important to let the product to dry. Directly after spraying it will feel a bit wet and sticky but after a few seconds this will disappear. I also spray the product on a powder/blusher/foundation brush as it helps to set my makeup really well and last long.

And yes it’s coming also in a convenient travel size so I can have it with me all the time!

So girls, get one for your-self and you will not look back.
