    Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 35/pa+++ Discussion

    Discuss MAC's newest Prep + Prime product, Beauty Balm, here. Releasing in July distribution appears limited in the US to online only. A new take on a all-over face primer, I'm intrigued! Have any of you MAC artists or "in the know" industry people had a chance to work with this yet?

    Too bad that it has only SPF 35....I need SPF 50 for my very light and sensitive skin.

    Otherwise I would really like to test it!

    Hey Lou, I think my wording wasn't clear I said "in the US" it is limited to online only. There is an international release date sometime in July so I am fully assuming it will be available to internationally (excluding Asia).

    this is a really nice product actually. it was asia exclusive for awhile that is why it said excluding asia cause they already carry it lol. its nice for skin tones. i will say if you are darker like nw45 on up u really need to work into your skin because it is tinted it looks funny unless u blend it in. it it nice looks though it can be worn on its own really cause it color has a nice pay off. i believe it also brightens the skin if i remember from training correctly.
    im just a boy who loves makeup

    Hmmm sounds interesting, the last MAC primer I used I absolutely HATED, I think it was the one for drier skin...(?) Awful. Hopefully this one will be heaps better.

    This sounds interesting, but I can skip. Unless it's absolutely stellar.

    I am so excited about this. As a fan of Asian beauty lines I have been curious to try a bb. Can't wait for this one. So far I love everything I have in the P+P line.

    I love my Skin79 BB Creams, so I am very interested in this. Traditional Asian BB Creams are "blemish balms" and are suppose to be moisturizing, protects the skin from the sun, brightens/whitens and some improve wrinkles.

    I've been curious about BB's too. Just not sure if they are for me? Or what they even do?

    I too have been curious about BB creams. I heard they're kind of like tinted moisturizers but I can't be sure I have yet to test one myself.

    It is limited to online right now, they are testing it to see how it does, whether they want to distribute it on-counter.
    It DOES increase moisturization in the skin as well as decreasing the appearance of shine on the skin. The artists that tried it on RAVED about it that it really smoothed out the skin texture.
