Mac Prep and Prime Vibrancy Under Eye Primer
Guest Review by Dhara (Medium Skin tone (NC41) and Combination Skin)
We all know of primer products for the face and eye lids but how about a primer for under the eye as well ? I’d say that sounds excellent !! The MAC Prep+Prime Vibrancy Eye primer is a deadly combo of make-up + repair. It came with the Primed for Perfection collection so it’s a limited edition product-but it’s been introduced as part of the permanent range as well…
The Mac Prep + Prime Vibrancy Eye Primer is a light weighted, peachy white lotion with super micro shimmer flecks. The primer has optical diffusers which go against the rays of light and minimize the appearance of under eye dark circles. MAC says it gives instant radiance which is absolutely true. It also claims to repair the under eye capillaries with regular use.
While I was on a search for a better eye cream then the one I am using currently, I was suggested that I use this fighter twice a day regularly for my dark circles and skip eye cream altogether. Though I used it only when I have to use the concealer, i could see that it made concealer blending a breeze when applied under the concealer and definitely brightened the under eye area. This gets absorbed in the skin within minutes of application and makes blending of concealer much smoother and easier. It also makes the concealer stay for a longer while and makes the eyes shine and look fresh. It’s almost like an instant wake-up call for the eyes- fresher, brighter, lighter. It doesn’t feel heavy at all as its quick absorbing and light weight. If you do still want to use an eye cream, then I advise that you wait out till the eye cream is absorbed before applying the primer.
The shiny black bottle of the primer comes with a pump dispenser which actually pumps out the product more than is required which is a bit of a waste of a pretty expensive product. But with more controlled motion and practice you can manage to pump out just a little product :p The bottle holds 15 ml of primer but since its to be used only on the under eye area, it should last for quite some time. As for all MAC products, the only flip side of this product is the price, given how much the product is wasted at times due to getting pumped more than required. It would have been better if it came in a tube or a pot.
