MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correct

April 29, 2014

I have a soft spot for MAC’s Prep + Prime range of products as this was the very first makeup primer I used, and subsequently, the very first BB cream!  And so, when MAC launched a new range of CC creams, I was excited to try and of course, compare with previous iterations of the Prep + Prime creams.

The new MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correct, just like all its predecessors, increases luminosity and inhibits oily shine to help makeup last all day.  Further, it evens out skin tone with 4 colour correcting shades – Adjust, Illuminate, Neutralize, and Recharge.  It also contains moisturizing properties to keep skin fresh and hydrated throughout the day.  The Prep + Prime CC is formulated with broad spectrum SPF30 to protect the skin from UVA/UVB rays.

Out of all the recent batch of CC creams that have come to market, I found the MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correct to be my favorite.  The texture is similar to previous Prep + Prime products that I’ve tried, in fact it feels slightly lighter if memory does not fail me.  It is sheer, and allows foundation to go over nicely without streaking or becoming too thick.  As a primer, it holds my makeup well, keeping me shine free throughout the day.

MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correct is now available at all MAC stores.
