I didn't always use a lip primer. Must say this was the best purchase. My matte lipsticks now goes on so smoothly and my lips are moisturized all day.

Fantastic Lip Primer

I loved this primer!! It's smooth and so easy to apply plus it has a vanilla -like scent to it. Definitely the best primer I've used.

Best Lip Primer Ever!
Before I put on any lipstick, I always make sure to put on this lip primer first! I've tried other lip primers and they make my lips feel terribly dry, but this one makes my lips feel refreshed so to speak, and the vanilla scent is nice as well.
To me this is the best product to apply to your lips before applying any matte lipstick!

LIFE CHANGING!
I have really hopped on board with the latest matte lipstick trend which unfortunately has left my lips rough and dry. When I bought this and started applying it before my retro matte lipsticks (I'm obsessed I have four so far and want to collect more) my dryness issues have been completely eradicated. This leaves my lips SO moistured without feeling oily or slimy. I have started using it not only before I apply matte lipstick but just as an occasional lip balm to keep my lips wrinkle free and hydrated.

Amazing
Tags +Creamy, Moisturizing, smoothing
This lip primer is amazing. I have the type of lips that no matter how much I exfoliate or moisturizer them lipsticks would dry them out and create the white ring on my lips, and they would peel. Maybe some of you are familiar this this. I was limited to lustres. This cream makes my lips the smoothest and healthiest they've ever been. I can wear any type of lip stick with this primer. It truly is amazing.

Glorified Chapstick
This primer does what it's supposed to, it performs just fine, has a nice scent, etc. However, I have gotten the exact same results using a free chapstick I got from some event with lame handouts. So while this primer does indeed prime your lips for lip liner/stick application and helps everything go on super smoothly, I don't think it works any better than regular old (free) chapstick. Four stars for being overpriced chapstick.

This is one of the products I use daily. Even if I'm not wearing any other makeup I still apply this primer. Especially before I go to bed at night. It works just like a gloss. I wake up with soft lips every morning.

Holy Grail
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Hydrating
I don't know how I've lived without the addition of this lip primer. I struggle with my lips drying out whenever something other than lip balm has been applied. The primer keeps my lips hydrated and even helps the lipstick apply incredibly smooth. Mind you, the stick is soft and creamy so don't press down hard; you wouldn't want to risk breaking it or ruining it in anyway. Also, a little goes a long way.

Don't know how I lived without out this primer!!!
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
I have always been obsessed with makeup but am new to MAC Cosmetics. I cannot believe what I have been missing all of these years! I am now addicted to MAC! This primer is phenomenal! I seriously don't know how I wore lipstick without it. I use a little Chapstick on my bare lips, wait a few minutes, apply this primer, wait a few more minutes and then put on my MAC lipstick and it stays on literally all day and my lips feel moisturized and not dry (I like MAC's matte lipsticks). My lipstick does need to be touched up in the center of my bottom lip after I eat lunch and by the end of my work day, my lips do feel a little dry and my lipstick a little clumpy on my lips, so I just wipe it off and add a little more primer and lipstick. This may be annoying to some, but for me, who has been in search of a long lasting lipstick forever, this is minor. After all, my lipstick lasted all day and I didn't have to worry about it feathering or getting on my teeth. Great product MAC! I will be back for more!

I couldn't have made it without this pre-prime lip!! No feathering, not cracks in my lipstick and it was super easy to take off my lipstick at night when I put this on first!!

I love this product! It works fabulously with The Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color. My lips remained vibrant and long lasting for (literally) 12 hours! I'm buying more Retro Matte Lip Color and this primer will forever be a make up staple for my look!!!

Product is a staple
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing
Prep+prime lip works great for the person that wants their Lipcolours to last all day without the feathered,dry look that most matte lipsticks and liquid lipsticks give after a few hours of wear. This product adds just the right amount of moisture to the lip without leaving an oily finish. If you apply it and let it set for a couple of seconds before applying your lip you extend the amount of needed before having to touch up

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT
Tags +Long wearing
The MAC specialist at Bloomingdales helped me as I was initially seeking a lip balm to better moisturize my dry lips. This Prep + Prime is such a great primer for the lips before applying your gloss/lipstick/pencil. It works best as a primer to wait at least 2 minutes to absorb before applying your lip color to ensure a long-lasting application. What I learned about drugstore bought chapsticks, which are waxed-based, and doesn't add any hydration benefits to your lips. This Prep + Prime is not waxed-based as I was told, and instead it consists of cocoa shea-butter,and oils to prevent a sticky, waxy application. I use this daily and wear it as alone. I do wish there was more product in the tube as I noticed that I tend to go through it pretty quickly (within 2 months). Otherwise, it's definitely worth the money and I highly recommend it if you have dry lips!

This product is a staple. Honestly, I don't know how I used to wear lipstick without it. My lipstick lasts for HOURS. It allows for easy application (which everyone wants). It's super moisturizing as well! Another thing that I love about this primer, is that it keeps the lipstick in place, and it doesn't smudge.

Helps chapped lips!
Tags +Long wearing, Hydrating
For people with lips that dry easily during the winter but you refuse to stop wearing lipstick - this product will work wonders for you. My lips kept drying up the lipstick color and eventually peeling off so I bought this after reading the reviews and I completely agree with everyone else who loves this product. It soothes your lips and makes for a GREAT base for lipstick. After 7 hours and a nap my lipstick still hasn't dried up or come off. This is a must have beauty essential.
