What does the product description say?
"The addition of an innovative polymer technology also creates the optical illusion of blurred lines and wrinkles, while helping to shrink the look of pores."

What does the product description say?
"Formulated with M·A·C's signature Charged Water Technology to saturate skin with short and long-term hydration and mineral-rich yeast extract to nourish and redensify the complexion with a blend of essential minerals."
WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: alcaligenes polysaccharides, faex.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: dimethicone, myristyl myristate.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: acetyl hexapeptide-8
