Just finished up my deluxe sample of MAC Natural Radiance Primer in the shade “Radiant Yellow.” I received this in one of my ipsy bags.
I really have come to love MAC’s primers. They make my skin so soft and matte and my foundations go on perfectly.
Here’s the full description from the MAC site:
A makeup primer that’s specifically beneficial for oily and combination skin types.
A silky gel emulsion, rich in natural ingredients, that hydrates and primes to improve foundation application, control oil and promote smooth texture. Vitamins E and C protect with antioxidants, while caffeine calms skin. Illuminating pearl powders reflect optic radiance. The formula disappears upon application resulting in a beautiful glow.
There are 2 shades available, yellow and pink. I want to try the pink now since it’s made for fairer skintones!
This primer went on very easily and I didn’t notice any yellow color on my face, which is good. I also didn’t experience any oiliness or shine, which improved my rating since I hate shimmery primers. This isn’t as good as the Skin Base Visage primer in my opinion. That one seemed to have more of a velvety finish I found worked for me the best. I was worried about this making me too oily when I first got it, and it said “radiant,” because usually radiant equals oil slick for me!
The full size 50mL bottle of this primer is $42, and I’m not sure I would spend that much money on this since I favored the Skin Base Visage. This is still a great primer though!
