What MAC say: A light textured cream to wear on the eyes as an undercoat to eye makeup. Primes the lids. Smooth textures, neutralises lid colour. Use under eye shadow, pigments,
paints and concealers.(maccosmetics.co.uk)
What I Say: I bought this on a whim, I was scouring the MAC store looking for something to buy and yes, it was one of those days (eek!). I had finished my Urban Decay eye primer, so I pursued the MAC version. During my first use, this little thing and I did not get on, at all! The texture was very dry, I think I prefer a more liquid formula maybe. Blending was a struggle, it didn't seem to budge easily and within a few more tries, I gave up. My eye ended up looking like a serious case of caked foundation! Dry, flaky and yuk. Since it was already on my eye, I left it and carried on with my eye makeup and to be honest, I didn't notice any difference! Me and this little thing are no longer speaking...
I am unsure whether this is just my luck, as I have seen some positive reviews swimming around the beauty community. Maybe I am just a fussy one, maybe not? For £12 it is actually really cheap when compared to UD, Too Faced and Nars etc. Maybe the term 'you get what you pay for' applies to this scenario?
Have you tried this before? If so, how did it work for you?
