Hey guys ! This post is going be a review on the Mac Prep+Prime Skin Base Visage SPF 50. <- That's a mouth full lol.
This product is essential to oily/combination skin but definitely can be used on any skin types. It helps your make up stay on for hours (just as the All Nighter Spray from UD).
1) Primes the skin
2) Protects the face from UVA/UVB sun rays with a SPF of 50
3) Moisturizes the skin
On the MAC website, it's stated that "A skin-protecting cream with SPF 50. Applies under makeup to prime the skin for the sun. Featherweight, fast-absorbing, oil-free, invisible. Will not affect the look, texture or long-wear integrity of your makeup. Specially formulated with oil-absorbing powder, helps prevent oil breakthrough. Provides high-level broad spectrum sun protection. Worn daily helps guard the skin against discolouration, premature aging, dryness and other effects of sun exposure. "
Now for the basic run down

Cost: 2/5 - This costs 30.00 USD $ which is a lot considering the amount you get in the tube which is 1 fl. oz. Although you only need a nickel size amount for the whole face, I really debate if I want to re-splurge on the item though I love it.
Packing: 3/4 - I'm not too happy about the packing on this item, the bottle is really hard and stiff so if it comes down to a time when you have a little left, you might want to cut the tube to scrap the excess left. What I did was I depotted it? I took an empty sample container and squeezed all of the product out, I think this is a better option :)
Application: 5/5 - Applying this is the same way anyone would apply a primer/moisturizer. It isn't too creamy or too liquidy. It comes out as a white cream and absorbs within the skin within 5-10 minutes. Though it contains a higher SPF it doesn't leave such a harsh white cast which is great !
OVERALL: 4/5 I really do enjoy using this product, I've had mine since March and I have a little more than half left which is a good deal for the 30$ I had to cash out. It helps my make up stay long lasting through out the whole day literally along with the high SPF which is awesome for the summer time.
