Mac products are high quality products and until now they haven't disappointed me. Having used couple of them I decided to splurge on this MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter after reading positive review .these comes in various shades to choose from and What can I say about the packaging,I like the concept of this one form packaging. It is black looks elegant comes in a pen-type form and you need to twist it up,the product then comes on the top which has this brush type thing which makes application much more easier. This seems totally a beginner and travel-friendly product. You can either use this before applying foundation or after both ways works fine. I have tried using this on the bridge of the nose, forehead, chin and under-eye areas .you can pay it and it gets easily blended. It brightens the area totally and also conceals the dark areas giving a nice sheer and highlighted look overall

Travel friendly

2 in one

MAC brand and its products are not only renowned for its class but also for its price and trust me every penny that you put on these products is worth. MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter used it once and I became a huge fan of it for lifelong. Blemishes your skin, covers the dark spots, not very shiny, good to cover dark circles and of course a travel friendly pen shape highlighter. If we overlook the price its really a worth to have one to look good in occasions and parties also it’s a prep and prime so we need not have to purchase prep separately. I have been using this from last 6 months and I am happy with the results. I would really recommend to have one in handy as you may never know when you and where it might need it. Its texture is smooth and keeps you skin toned That said for ultra sensitive skins I recommend that not to go for it as its not an allergy free and it may have some side effects. That said please check with your dermatologist before use.

I been using MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter for more than 6 months and was happy in choosing them. Products from MAC have always gave good results when it comes to skin care products and cosmetics. About the primer it comes in a pen shaped packaging which is travel friendly and comfortable to use. The product been well pigmented that covers up all the skin imperfections and delivers perfect even tone skin. The product is very easy to use and blends finely on the skin. It has a soft and smooth texture that glides smoothly on the skin and leaves a smooth skin. The highlighter has an inbuild primer that adds moisture to the skin and doesn’t leave the skin to dry out. The best thing about the product is that it comes in 6 different shades to choose from as per the skin tone. Overall it is one good product to be recommended.

Easy to use.

This is a pen-style highlighter which is pretty simple to use. This is a short cut to hiding the blemishes and spots. I can use the highlighter and cover all the small imperfections in my skin. My skin is ready for makeup application in no time.MAC is one of the popular brands who provide wonderful beauty products. This pen style is the non-messy and quick-drying formula. I don't need too much quantity to cover the imperfections. This pen is long-lasting and the content does not dry away soon. It is a lovely innovative product that can be gifted to girls who love wearing makeup. The soft cushiony brush in the pen smoothly spreads the content on skin and instantly covers the marks. You can use the pen as a primer or as concealer also. They have around five shades that cover all the skin tones. You can buy them online. It is worth the price.

MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter is an awesome product because of its various reasons. The main thing would be that it has a pen tip which makes it super easy to apply. This way the the applying process is completely mess free. I have been using this pen more like a prep and less like for the highlighting options. The reason why I use it for prep is because it does a fabulous job on my face before the make up. Makes my skin feel light and also smooth for the makeup to be applied! It glides on the skin very easily. I would definitely recommend this one for beginners as this makes it easy to apply and it cannot go wrong! This is one of those products that i cannot do away with and yes it is a must have for all those who apply makeup very often! You will definitely not regret buying this one!

As I was suffering from dark spots all over my face I was looking for some thing really unique to hide these spots. Also as my face looked so un even skin toned I wanted to give my face an even look. Than I thought what would be best than a MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter. I ahs been using this brands products over a decade now and trust me was never ever disappointed with either of them. I instantly bought this highlighter with out much thinking and guess what my blemishes gets hide with a single layer of this highlighter so well that no body can even notice I have dark spots. Isn’t that great! It helps me in hiding my skin imperfections so well. It is really a great concealer and is perfect so as to conceal my face thoroughly. The texture id really smooth and is very easy to apply over my face.
