      Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

      I have really oily skin and don't like most primers/moisturizers because they make my face even more greasy. I use this on my face before applying my veil primer (hourglass) and Mac foundation. It makes my makeup look great, without being greasy. Love It.

      FYI.. A little dab or two is all you need to cover your whole face, if you are applying more then that it might feel more heavy and not soak in as well.

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        The girl at Ulta swayed me to this instead of the one I wanted and went to get, the regular MAC visage primer. I did not like this at all. I put it on over my moisturizer to use as a primer. It did not go on well, soak in very well or help with my pores. Too heavy for a primer. Was not matte. Not good for oily skin.

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        M.A.C global artist Vimi Joshi recommended this product to me, because its moisturising without making my skin look greasy. and it sure feels great and moisturising.
        I love how this product can be used for a number of things, like making a full coverage foundation feel lighter. its very lightweight and almost liquedy but great as a primer as its kind of tightening and firming.

        Smooth tightening effect

        By Flawless

        from Dallas

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        Ok so im a male flight attendant and i wear foundation because it's just part of the job. Lol. I decided to try a new foundation as i had been using Studio sculpt but in an NC which i was matched with but i didnt like the yellowish tones and it never seemed to set. I felt like powder made it look less natural (i didnt want to look like i was wearing makeup, per se). I had seen videos of Prolong wear and so i decided to get matched for it and try it out there in the Macy's MAC counter. I fell in love. I then told the artist that i use a cheap primer and asked if there was anything in MaC line for oilyskin/large pores. Her eyes lit up. Shes like try this! And she rubbed some Timecheck lotion in on other side opposite of Prolongwear. I felt a slight cooling and smooth soft non oily feel. So impressed. Then she applied the prolongwear on top so i could compare. I LOVED the finished look. I feel like u cant tell i have anything on. Looks so natural. So smooth and matches my skin tone perfectly. The ONLY complaint i have, well 2. One i havent experienced but i know as i get down to the end of the bottle it will be hard to get all of it out due to design. Also (maybe yur supposed to let Timecheck set? But there is a slight i mean barely noticeable sticky'ish to the touch where foundation alone seemed to set as if it were powdered. Smooth almost airbrush effect. Gonna try letting it set a few min next time before applying foundation. But still i rated it 5 because my skin felt firmer and my pores were noticeably smaller. I love love love both of these products!! They work perfectly together.

        Excellent Primer for Dry Skin and Large Pores!

        By Janelle

        from Massachusetts

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        I have very dry, flaky skin with large pores. This becomes even more exaggerated when I apply makeup. I had a MAC consultant put this on my skin before applying a foundation and it's never looked so good! I think half the battle is using it properly. She used a 170 brush and applied using a stippling motion, but only where I needed it--not all over my face. Basically, where I have issues with my pores. I use this conservatively with the pro wear foundation and it looks fantastic! I've even noticed that my skin looks better, too. Definitely worth it!

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        I've given this several tries. I can't see a difference with using it. Does nothing for my pores. Had to resort to another brand

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        I have oily skin and i felt like this moisturizer made it worse. I felt like an hour after applying i needed to add more powder. Not for oily skin.

        It's okay

        By Amanda

        from NYC

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        It's an okay product. The label mentioned "hydrating", not sure about that. I had to use a light moisturizer under it because my face felt a little dry (especially during the winter). One thing for sure it definitely reduces the appearance of pores and it gives your makeup a smoother finish. *Keep in mind there's other products that can do the same for less money.*

        Not impressed

        By Kara22

        from Cincinnati

        Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

        The workers and reviews ranted and raved about this product, but I am not impressed. I have to pump several times to get enough product to spread onto my face, as it does not spread over easily. I have combination skin, however this makes it appear more oily. Although I love how it feels, I am disappointed that it does not spread easily and I am not seeing a noticeable difference, other than more oily skin. It is definitely not worth the price, I will not be buying it again.

          I have very dry skin, also I don't wear any foundation, because my face is too sensitive. So, I was wondering is this MAC primer good for wearing alone without foundation? Will it cover pores? Or should I search smth else?

            Happy to help!

            Mineralize Timecheck Lotion is an excellent choice and can definitely be used on its own with great results. Apply over clean skin to hydrate, blur fine lines and wrinkles and to minimize the look of pores.

            We think you'll love the results!
