You can apply 2 layers for extra coverage or I have also used this as a primer under foundation on a night out. Works a treat and lasts all night! I will happily call my self the BB cream queen I have tried so many on the market, some great, some not so great, and I have to say that M. C has nailed this BB cream down!
Packaging was what you would expect in a BB cream their was nothing amazing about it, just a simple tube that you squeeze the product out of. But their is one thing that turns me off every single time I use the product and that is the smell, this product screams play dough and I can't stand it on some days, luckily it is not a lingering smell but whilst it is still their it is just nasty! This was the first - and only - foundation that allows me to look fabulous and still keep a "I woke up like this" look.
MAC Prep and Prime Colour Correcting Compact in Neutralize and Illuminate – Swatch and Review
The M. I do love using BB creams but have found them lacking in coverage. However was simply astounded at the level of coverage and how buildable the product was in areas that required that little extra coverage.
The instore colour matching experience was fantastic! Im not a big fan of visiting the beauty counters at David Jones or Myers as I often leave with products shades too dark for my skin and generally feel uncomfortable with the levels of customer service. However this time round I actually felt like I was chatting with a friend or a favourite cousin. She listened to what were my preferences, skin type etc and did an excellent job of choosing the right shade for me!
After she had removed my makeup and reapplied the MAC BB cream was very happy with the final results!
The product come in an easy to use squeeze tube with a felt like finish for the cap. I applied the product with the MAC Large Angled countour brush and loved the feel of the product and how moist it was. This made it easy to spread easily over the skin surface and it dried to a soft glow finish.
The fragrance is nothing special but not too strong which I liked. Love how light it felt on my skin while still providing me with ample coverage on the areas that needed it. I could build the coverage in areas that needed it without it looking splotchy or uneven. It evened out my skin tone and give my skin a natural,healthy glow! The high SPF35 is points in the products favour again! Especially in the hot summer sun, happy to use a product that lets my skin breathe, protects it from the harsh suns rays as well as gives me decent coverage!
It stayed on beautifully all day long too! Certainly the best BB cream I've ever used! I absolutely love this BB cream. It is my everyday go to product that I can just use without any hassle. I apply the product with my real techniques expert face brush or my hands. The finish of the BB cream is a satin finish that does not require powder due to the finish.
The cream provides a perfect, light coverage which does not feel heavy on the skin. I was really excited to try this new BB cream that everyone was raving about in their Beautyheaven reviews. The MAC sales lady assisted me and we both decided that the medium to dark shade was my best match for my Asian skin. When i first applied it, i was pleased how it is easy to blend it all over my face creating an even toned, dewy natural complexion without looking too made up. It has no strong scent and does not irritate my skin.
The only drawback is the high price tag, though the big tube will go a long long way.. The SPF 35 is a great bonus as well. I like a natural look and dont like wearing heavy foundation so this is already a winner. Light and fluid, it applies best with a duo fibre brush. You do need to blend it well so you dont see streaks. You can apply it with clean fingers, however I actually prefer using a brush which isnt like me at all.

I do feel it needs to be set with powder as it does have a dewy finish and if I didnt I would end up with very shiny skin by the end of the day and I have dry skin. I dont find that the colour matches so well with my skin as compared to other MAC products, but it was worth trying it out. I generally look for the palest cool-toned shade when it comes to colour-matching my face, so for the MAC BB cream I picked up the shade "Extra Light". The shade range is better than any other BB cream I've tried previously. I find that it's best applied with clean fingers or a buffing brush definitely not a beauty blender!
I haven't found a primer that I like to use with it yet, and I found it hard to blend over a mattifying primer, but it still applies nicely on clean skin. I use a light dusting of translucent powder over the top to set it, which I think improves the texture by taking it from slightly sticky-looking to luminous, and helps the staying power a great deal. I was very surprised that the coverage was so good, easily evening out my skin tone without looking heavy or cakey. I have combination, acne-prone skin with some redness and pigmentation, so this is important for me.
I don't use this product every day, but it's the first thing I pick up when I either want to apply a quick face, or when I want to go for a more fresh-looking face. I also love the packaging. It comes in a very pretty sparkly box, and the tube is sleek and easy to use. I really love this product. I was a little worried about buying this as I like my makeup to look as natural as possible.
I brought this hoping it would be really light and just blend into my skin, which it does exactly! It has a very light but still build able coverage. I think that it's the best product I have ever bought! I'm also a very lazy person so I love how I can just whack this on my face and not have to really blend it or wait for it to dry. After I've had a shower in the morning I moisturise my whole face first and under the eyes.
I love it for so many reasons. It has a high SPF which is incredibly important if you live in Australia. Wearing an SPF everyday under your makeup is definitely a must!

Especially when you have quite pale skin like mine. It is a fantastic moisturiser.

Since using this product my skin has felt more soft and it looks more even in tone. It has to be one of the best Primer's I've ever used. I'm prone to getting a bit of a shiny forehead throughout the day so I'm constantly patting it away. I've noticed that with using the BB I get hardly any shine at all. On a more lazy makeup day I would just use this BB with a bit of concealer and powder but for a night out I wouldn't use it on its own, but more as a primer under my makeup.
It really does it all and feels fantastic on the skin! It is a pity that I only use the product 4days prior to written the review, however, I found that the product remove easily with water. Not very oily as other product of bb cream I had use eg, Biotherm white detox BB cream. Colour easy to applied and fit onto my skin well. My skin felt breathable, smooth and not overly hydrate as compact. I was sent this cream to trial by the generous Beautyheaven girls. I went to the David Jones store in Sydney andhad the usual exceptional service.
Wow is all I can say, the cream just glided on and gave me a flawless complexion. I have good skin so I only need a small amount tfor application which means the cream will go a long way.
