The Natural Radiance primer, which has been specially formulated for combination and oily skin types, provides hydration and a natural glow to the skin.

I tried the Radiant Pink shade, a pale pinky gel cream that melts into skin to provide a smooth, supple base for makeup. It's the perfect base for pale skin types and contains tiny particles so skin glows. It is an excellent base for foundation, and helps it last throughout the day.

The Prep + Prime range is a favourite of mine, having already been a covert to the Prep + Prime Lip, which provides a smooth and refined base for lipstick and Prep + Prime Lash, which plumps up lashes before you apply mascara. 

MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance is available from February 2014, exclusive to Brown Thomas.
