Hey everyone, I've been slacking on the blogging front these last few days but I'm back!
I bought MAC's Prep and Prime primer months and months ago - so long that I can't even remember which month it was. Anyway, whilst at my parents home last week I was looking through my baskets of make-up and found it. I took it back to my university house to try out.
Initial thoughts: So, before a night out on Thursday I applied it all over my face as a base before my MAC SFF foundation. It made my skin feel smooth and plump, and I was really pleased with the results.

What happened? Well, I woke up on Friday morning (having removed my make-up the night before thoroughly) and I looked in the mirror only to see about 6 tiny spots spread all over my face. Not good! I never break out to that capacity. When I break out I get one spot, sometimes two - usually in the same area. These spots were dotted around my face - two on my forehead, one on my cheek, one on my chin and two right on my lipline - how annoying!
Why did this happen? My initial thoughts were to blame the MAC Prep and Prime. All the other products I'd used a million times before and never had any problems. Plus, it's very strange for me to break out so bad.
Why it might be my fault: I checked the bottle and it says that it should only be kept for 6 months. So maybe it may be past it's date, but usually I don't follow thoese guidlines TOO carefully. At the most, it may be about 8 months old. On top of this, it says to avoid the lip area - which would explain my two spots on the lipline. Again, I don't follow products guidelines TOO carefully so this may be my own fault.
Has MAC's Prep and Prime affected anyone else's skin in this way?
I wanted to try their new Prep and Prime with spf in it, but now I'm understandably a bit apprehensive.
