        Anti-slip mat for your lips

        Oh, I do so LOVE this product!

        This was introduced to me by a MAC artist when I was in-store looking for a matte red lipstick.
        I'm not usually someone who does much with her lips. A bit of gloss here, some cremesheen there, nothing fancy. Having said that, looking for siren red lipstick for a "new look" for me was an eye opener.

        I tried Ruby Woo without the primer, because I thought the primer to be a little superfluous and also thinking lip liner would be sufficient... Well, I thought wrong. The lipstick stayed somewhat, but my lips got so dry because it's a super matte lipstick. putting lip balm underneath eased the drying, but nixed the staying power of the lipstick... not good

        So off I went and ordered the primer online. It is the epitome of "Stay Put"! =) Wore the lipstick with everything and it stayed throughout dinner AND dessert. WOW!

        here's how I did it: Lip balm when applying my foundation, just to it has enough time to sink in (I do my lips last). Lip primer, letting it "dry" properly, lip liner, lipstick.. done..

        I first purchased this primer over two years ago and after losing it, bought it again two months ago. When I first purchased it I noticed that my lips were getting chapped to the point that if I didn't wear lipstick my lips looked terrible, but I didn't think it was due to the primer. Fast forward to two months ago when I tried it again, I'm having the same issues with my lips and now I can't help but think that it is in fact this primer that's causing all of the problems.

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

        I purchased this for the means of lip care. I've read the reviews stating that its a great moisturizer...

        Well, I was blown away that very night. I put it on before bed...

        (Alittle back story, I've always been someone who bit the flaky skin off my lips, always have since I was little. My lips have always then had indents and callused spots in the middle on my bottom lip from the damage.)

        okay back to the story...

        The morning after I had put it on my lips, my lips were like New! I'm serious, the dark spots that are usually there were gone. I had picture perfect lips. Since then, I've been putting it on whenever I feel like my lips are chapped or just to start the day with it. I'm SOOOOO glad that I got this. It's alittle expensive, but to have normal looking lips, even showing up on camera without the lip callus...WORTH IT!

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

        There's a reason why this lip primer is usually out of stock- it's great! Living up north, the winter months cause my lips to be extremely chapped. But this lip primer actually helps smooth my lips so that any matte lip color will glide on smoothly, will last throughout the day, and will help protect lips from drying out while using matte liquid lipsticks.

        I should have bought this product so many years ago. I suffer from chapped lip skin with most lipsticks. And guess what this problem is GONE, and for good!

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

        Ok. So I am in mid 40s and recently became addicted to makeup in a major way. I have many types (mostly matte) lipsticks as well as about 100 matte liquid lips. I LOVE the way the liquid lip looks initially but it feathers and looks horrible within an hour for me. Lipstick at least you can reapply during the day. I have found that when the malfunction happens with liquid lip, you have to completely remove it and start over. There is no going over it.

        Now this product I was hopeful would make a big difference for me with the liquid lip but it unfortunately does not help with liquid at all. Whomever comes out with the product to help with liquid lip is going to be a star. This one does however help me with my mac product lipsticks. It makes a huge difference in longevity and it looks fresh as new for hours and hours.

        So what I though I was going to use this for did not work out but it works great for mac lipsticks as primer.

        By 

        from Houston, TX, USA

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

        This does not work as described for me.

        I have dry lips but love matte lipsticks. Was hopeful this product would be the solution to all of my problems but that was not to be.

        When going on it feels lovely but after a couple of hours my lipstick feathers as usual. This has been going on prior to Winter so it is not weather related.

        I will not repurchase this and am actively looking for a similar but better product elsewhere.

        Comments about MAC Prep + Prime Lip:

        Love, love, love this product! It works well under lipstick or on its own as an all day lip moisturizer. This product helps my lipstick last longer. Its almost as if the primer seals in the lip colour making it hard to rub off completely throughout the day. I can apply this in the early morning and still have a bit of colour left on my lips at the end of the day with only 1 application.

        Absolutely love this lip primer. Not only does it go on super smooth and creamy, a little goes a long way! One little swipe will completely cover both upper and lower lip. It makes my lipstick/liner stay on for a good 10 hours even after I have eaten two meals. LOVE!
