Smells weird
This product works well, but it smells bad. Normally, I love MAC, and I've never had this problem with any of their stuff before. I don't know if it's just the way this product reacts with my body chemistry or what, but when I put it on my face, it smells strange/bad. The smell reminds me of old makeup, or a makeup sponge that has soured. It's so bad that I can't even use the product, and I definitely wouldn't purchase it again.

Really fills in fine lines all day!
Tags +fine lines, wrinkles
This primer really works! I did had to do a live chat with a Mac artist to understand it though. When applied correctly, and lightly (a little goes a long way) this primer will fill in fine lines all day! I couldn't believe the difference in my smile lines! I filled them in gently from all angles with a flat foundation brush and applied my foundation over. This doesn't make my face oily, but I wouldn't recommend over applying it just like any other high quality product, a little goes a long way. I didn't notice a difference in the size of my pores. I think this works best for filling. Fine lines. I will absolutely continue to use it because I haven't even had a product come close to filling in my smile lines before.

Just Okay
I really could have done without this one. It's just okay in my book, but so are most primers.

I'm not at all sure why anyone would give this less than a 5 star rating -- for me, I've never felt a nicer product on my face! It's 100% fabulous.

Awesome Matte Finish!
Tags +oily/combination skin
The Prep & Prime Skin Smoother is by far the best! I have super oily skin and I have tried other products to prime my skin before the foundation application and the end result was horrible leaving my skin like my foundation just melted off. This product not only holds the foundation in place but it leaves it having a soft matte finish which is totally what I am looking for. A little goes a long way. If you have large pores pat the product into the pores and don't apply foundation until the primer is completely dry. I wait normally about 7 minutes and then apply the foundation. MAC please do not discontinue this product.

Great primer
Tags +large pores, smoothing
It adds the perception of a flawless face. It is a great smoother and minimizes pores, It is very convenient as it is in a solid form rather than liquid or cream or what have you. It is highly recommended!

I LOVE how this primer feels. It really improves the final product. I would give it 5 stars, except I don't think you get much product for the price. Even still, it is worth it!

Heaven in a compact!
Tags +long wear, Oil control, problem skin
This product was highly recommended to me by one of the M.A.C experts that work at Macy's. I have large pores, oily skin, and have suffered with terrible acne for as long as I can remember. So I finally got around to buying it and paired with M.A.C's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, it's absolutely amazing! My skin looks smooth, beautiful, flawless, and evenly toned. It's literally, heaven in a compact.

Simply the best!
Tags +dry and also mature skin.
I have used several primers over the years , adapting to various stages of my skins' needs, and whereas I have had pretty good results overall, this compact formulation is the best I have ever used. I must say I was a bit put out when I got home to realize the MAC sales lady had sold me a product that was essentially for filling in fine lines and at smoothing mature skin, but I had been impressed with its performance when she put it on. So this 62 year old( who still thinks she's 22) bit the bullet and got over my age issue.
I must say, it is simply the best primer I have ever used. It really does fill in fine lines, smooths the skin so that there is a perfect canvas upon which to apply foundation. My finished look is indeed flawless, smooth, the skin any 22 year old would be proud of! Please make this product permanent, Mac! Just in case,I'm buying a second lot, to have available. Please don't forget that us older gals still use make up products intended for younger girls, and we need the skin to go with them so we do not look like "mutton dressed as lamb"! We need the help so we can continue to use your wonderful foundations and color cosmetics! Keep up the good work!

Love It!
I love this item!! I have large visible pores and laugh lines around my mouth. This item has worked wonders for that. I have been using it for a week now and I have not experienced any of the negatives. It also gives my makeup a smooth matte-like finish. I love it!
