Mineralize Timecheck Lotion utilizes ingredients that fight against time. 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. 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. Delivered in a unique gel-lotion formula that feels like a cooling, refreshing splash of water. Can be applied as a primer for makeup that glides like silk on top.

      Have tried other primers in the past. They do not compare! This primer goes on so smoothly and it is so light. My pores are covered and my complexion looks great!!

      Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

      Lady at Mac told me it was a primer, worst mistake ever. Already having oily skin, and using this my make up wiped of my face even after setting. This product did cause a BREAK OUT. This product would be good if you have severe dry skin. Other than that not really worth it. Bottle and design is cute but the product isn't that great.

      Comments about MAC Mineralize Timecheck Lotion:

      I have tried numerous primers, thought I would give this one a try for my own skin. I have creases under my eyes, so I look for something that's going to fill and lift. It was created in that intention. However it feels really greasy on my skin, and product doesn't stay on long at all! It's a nightmare if you fear transferring.

        I was told this was a primer before foundation. It's not, but it is a nice moisturizer. Maybe educate the ladies at ULTA on MAC products a bit more.

            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.

              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.

                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!
