ThisThatBeauty Reviews: MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correct Collection

We are always striving to have perfect even-toned skin, that exactly matches our natural skin color – however the reality is sometimes we need a bit of help.  Even after applying a foundation to create a smooth canvas on the face, there can still be color issues that need to be addressed.  Foundation too yellow? Need a bit of brightening? Still struggling with some redness?  This is where color correcting products can be your best friend – helping to easily offset any skin tone issues.  MAC’s newest collection, Prep + Prime CC Colour Correct is aptly named and offers 4 shades in both cream and powder products to address color flaws on the face.  Here is a look at the entire collection:

  • Recharge – apricot – best for adding warmth to the skin

Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose Powder: Finely milled is an understatement with these powders – they are incredibly sheer and stunning on the skin.  Use with a large fluffy powder brush all over the face, or take a sponge/powder puff and spot treat areas on the face such as redness in the cheeks or darkness under the eyes. Available for $24.00.

Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Pressed Powder: Color correcting on the go – is there anything better? A quick dusting of one of these powders can help to tone down redness, brighten under the eye or give a glow back to the skin after a long day.  The texture is identical to the loose but in a pressed form so it glides on effortlessly and is undetectable on the skin.  Available for $29.00.


The collection is available now online at and will be available in store February 6th.
