It’s not often that you apply a base of some form - BB cream, foundation, tinted moisturiser - only to have it look exactly the same as the fresh application eight hours later. After submitting to the hands of M.A.C trainer Olivia recently for a little one-on-one I left with skin looking amazingly flawless - and remaining so over eight hours later when I reluctantly scrubbed it off!
The occasion was the launch of M.A.C Prep+Prime CC Colour Correct, an innovative new line of colour correcting creams and powders created by the global beauty leaders to “enhance and perfect your skin tone”.
Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting SPF 30 is a creamy, tinted primer that evens skin tone in a multi-tasking formula. It’s available in four shades and aren’t a traditional CC Cream, but do have some of the benefits of one with a formula that evens skin tone, brightens, and protects with an SPF 30.
Olivia applied mine over a light wash of the brand’s beautiful BB Cream, but you can actually use them all their own over a light moisturiser. For example Adjust is a peachy beige that will work fine as a lightweight tinted moisturiser of sorts to even skin tone, brighten, and provide a makeup-less look that’s very, very flattering if you do not suffer from major skin problems such as redness, blemishes, acne, and the like. Other shades include Neutralize, which has a sheer yellow tint to combat redness, Illuminate is a light shade of lavender that brightens and duller skin tones, whilst Recharge has a strong orange-y apricot tone to add warmth to medium or darker skin tones. Amazing stuff!
And luckily for us, you can counteract a few skin tone issues at once thanks to the addition of Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting powders, which apply transparently, smoothing away the appearance of lines and imperfections. Available in Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose and a handbag friendly Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting Compact, they are an absolute wonder to use. I’ve been loving Illuminate dusted under my eyes to combat my hereditary dark circles, it adds light and softens without needing any kind of hardcore concealer.
All three options will be available instore on March 3 and are RRP $54.00. Get in there!Tweet
