Battle of the primers: review!

Hello Biuties!
Today its the turn of the primers.
Products featured:
L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Shine Mattifying Primer
MAC Skin Prep+Prime
MAC Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

L'Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Shine Mattifying Primer
I like this product with my Fashion Fair foundation as it helps it glide and blend a lot better, as for the mattifying effect I'm not sure it works probably because I use it with an oil free foundation and on top of everything use a mattifying powder. At least the combination works perfectly!

MAC Skin Prep+Prime
It makes my skin quite oily but as soon as I retouch its fine again. I like it just because it absorbs my foundation and helps it stay put and because of the beautiful sheen it gives to my face. Would I buy it again? I think I would just because of the result I see in it when I take pictures.

MAC Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
I don't use it as a primer but as a setting powder. the MAC website says:
"Reduces shine while optically minimizing the look of pores, lines, imperfections"
And that is no lie!
As soon as I put this on I see the difference. Its a great setting powder despite the packaging which makes the use of this product quite messy.
