You get your picture in the papes, you're famous.
You're famous, you get anything you want.
That's what's so great about New York.

Day 17: MAC Prep+Prime Skin Refined Zone and Prep+Prime Skin Filler Base
MAC is known for their color products. All of us have experienced the lemmings craze over a limited edition eyeshadow or lipstick. Right now the beauty junkies covet Ripe Peach.
I feel that MAC skincare gets the "bum rush" when it comes to attention. The line is vastly underrated and not appreciated. The Lightful series has changed my life. The Volcanic line was pure genius.
The new Tabloid Beauty collection contains two new products worthy of a fuss. They are Prep+Prime products.
Prep+Prime Skin Refined Zone is a treatment product that is supposed to reduce the appearance of visible pores. I can not resist a pore product!
This little skin diddy promises to:
1. Reduce clogged pores by 25%.
2. Reduce the appearance of pore size by 32%
3. Improve smoothness and skintone by 26%
4. Reduce Sebum by 24%
It has a silicon texture with the scent of witch hazel. It leaves the skin feeling outrageously soft. and smooth. It has flushed out my pores of toxins. Like a skincare colonic. My pores have not disappeared or left the building. They just look less crater like. This product retails for $19.50.
Prep+Prime Line Filler Base is a product that is slated to improve and diminish lines within 8 weeks. I have only been testing it for half that amount of time. There is some blurring of my laugh lines. Nothing dramatic. It works as a great primer product. My foundation does not cake or settle into my pores or creases. The ingredients are filled with the "cones". There is a one called Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone. This made me think of vinyl records. I am hoping that my readers will get this reference. I beg you to please refrain from asking "what are records?" in the comments. I will feel so old.
Other ingredients are caffeine, Glycerin, Silica and Sucrose.
This product retails for $19.50.
The Tabloid Beauty collection also boasts 6 Pro LongWear Lustre Lipcolour and 10 Pro Longwear Lipcolour products. The packaging is fun with fonts and graphics from the "rags" or Tabloid papers.
