Review: MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

17 April 2009

Lo and Behold! the next best thing after Twilight... MAC's Prem + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder! (I know i have to mention Twilight at least once in every post, obsessed much?)

I got scared when I first saw it - only because it was white! even if the product description says 'Transparent' I still visualise myself in white makeup with curly pink wig, polka-dots overalls and huge red shoes! Not really the look i am after but anyway when Colour Ready came out I went ahead and purchased it.
And I am glad I did :) Now all i can think of is getting a back up.

Now you may wonder what's the difference between transparent finishing powder and that of MAC Invisible powder: first, the former is smaller in size than the latter; second finishing powder claims to improve your skin with longterm use while invisible powder is only a quick fix and third, transparent powder has got better texture :)

Here are some suggestions on the product and this is purely based on my experience and readings online:

1. a little goes a long way (Only set the areas where you applied your foundation and concealer if not the whole face)
2. invest on a good brush if you can. They are promoting a brush with it if you'd like but any face brush is just fine as long as it's full and can buff your face well.
3. Make sure that your foundation / concealer is evenly and well blended before you set it with the finishing powder. (trust me, i had to learn it the hard way)

So, if you're thinking of getting it, don't think just get it. (West Aussie girls, Colour Ready collection is available in both David Jones and Myer or

MAC Prem + Prime Transparent Finishing powder works best with Prem + Prime Refined Pore Treatment :)
