MAC Prep and Prime Translucent Powder

MAC has a wide range of makeup products, today I will review MAC Prep & Prime Translucent Powder. Before I write about my view lets find out what the brand has to say about this .

About the product

A silky finishing powder that provides an invisible way to set makeup. Reduces shine while optically minimizing the look of pores, lines, imperfections. Available in one universal color that suits all shades. Wear over makeup or on bare, moisturized skin.


Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Silica, Mica, Zinc Stearate, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol.

My View

I saw this product on a MAC website, and I knew that this gonna be a magical product for me. This is MAC translucent powder but also comes in a compact powder too. I always like powders over compact and I asked my sister to get me this translucent powder. The product comes in a big sized jar with black lid.

The net weight of the product is 9g.


Translucent powders are good in terms that it suits every skin tone, they look more white but when applied they blend really well. It just not set my foundation but has good oil controlling capability. So for me this is really a life saving product especially in Karachi’s humid weather. Β I don’t have an oily skin but a super combo. Few t-zone is super oily, my cheeks are normal to dry and the rest is normal.

The product does not come with any applicator, but that’s not important for me. I like to use it with my Sephora powder brush. I use it on my T-zone and sometimes on my cheeks area depending upon the weather condition. I can use it for my makeup touch ups through out the day and it can replace blot powders/papers.

I will surely recommend this product to oilies and comboss.


Suggested Way to use

I use it after complete makeup. Sometimes before blush too with my powder brush. Reviews say that it is Β good if wear alone.

The product is available on MAC website for worth 24$. Also available on Just4girls website for Rs.3,750 and on Nordstorm for Rs.2521
