Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting SPF 30 is a creamy, tinted primer that evens skin tone in a multi-tasking formula. It feels light on the skin, without feeling heavy in silicones and I like that it offers a light-medium coverage. More than “just” a primer, the coverage does hide skin imperfections. I haven’t experienced any heaviness from the addition of the sunscreen, either.  The color-correcting option best for me is Adjust.

Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting powders apply transparently, smoothing away the appearance of lines and imperfections. Available in Loose or Compact form, these powders build on the adjustments you are making with the Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting SPF 30, but they can also be used as a stand-alone product to set makeup.

Overall, I like the M·A·C Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting Collection and think it’s a good addition to the permanent line, without being too confusing for the average consumer. You can find the MAC Prep+Prime CC Colour Correcting Collection in department stores and Would you use color correcting products? Let me know in the comments!
