      Comments about MAC Oil Control Lotion:

      My makeup totally lasts longer because of this oil control lotion. I was so hesitant to purchase because i figured for the price i could purchase a color product but i was totally wrong. The oil control is totally needed and keeps my makeup in place all day long!

        Amazing!

        Comments about MAC Oil Control Lotion:

        I had been looking for a good moisturizer for my oily skin for a long time that wasn't too heavy and it's perfect! It's lightweight, moisturizing, and controls the oil on my face. I use it under my foundation and it extended the wear of my makeup and i usually get super oily after an hour or so but it kept up with me all day! Definitely recommend

        Stays on forever

        By Katie

        from Maine

        Comments about MAC Oil Control Lotion:

        This is my favorite primer! It looks so good under my foundation and it makes it last forever! This primer keeps me oils on my nose and chin at bay where all the other primers I've tried haven't. I put this all over my face even where I'm dry since I have combination skin because it acts like a moisturizer. The only complaint I have is the smell is sort of strong. It smells very rosey and grandma-y. The smell doesn't bother me but I know some people struggle with it.

          Comments about MAC Oil Control Lotion:

          Used this as a moisturizer before foundation and on days I wouldn't wear makeup and needed help with oil control. When used before my foundation it enhances the dry areas around my lips and chin

            I will put about two to three pumps on my face to make sure not only my entire face is covered but especially the T zone ( where im most oily at ) I will fully massage that all in and make sure its soaked in then I wait about 3 mins and apply my foundation and powder.

                Comments about MAC Oil Control Lotion:

                As both an avid beauty product fan and someone who suffers from adult cystic acne, finding a primer that is matte and controls my oily skin has been difficult. Most of the other top selling primers cause major breakouts for me but I have used this product for years and will continue to restock. This is holy grail for us oily & sensitive skin girls!

                  Comments about MAC Oil Control Lotion:

                  I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and my skin used to be dry and now that i'm pregnant I'm producing much more oil on my face and hair. Ive tried oil free primers and they dint work. This works so well for me. I can wear makeup and my skin looks perfectly matte and oil free! For any other pregnant woman out there with oily skin this is a must have.

                      Great question, Jay! MAC Oil Control Lotion doesn't have a silicone-like feel. It's a very lightweight lotion that feels weightless when applied, and performs beautifully on oily skin types. We think you'll love it!
