Oil Control Lotion
This is one of those products that you really regret skipping. I have very oily skin and my makeup usually melts off if I don't use some kind of oil control lotion. This helps it stay in place all day! I only give it 4 stars because it is pricey. Other than that its fantastic!
Not much of a fan. I prefer Chanel's.
MAC is a fairly expensive brand in Australia unlike America and this product is $55 and I don't find it to have significantly improved my skin.
I tried applying it different ways, with a sponge, with a brush, with my fingers etc. and fingers worked best but I felt it still left significant shine on my face.
Perhaps I wanted a more matte finish than "controlled oil" but the SA recommended this for me knowing I wanted a full matte finish.
If you live in US and get this product for less than $55 and don't have terribly oily skin, I'm sure this will work for you, but if you are like me and have a problem with your oiliness I would definitely suggest trying Chanel's Mattifying Lotion for $77 that works 10x better :)
I love this product! I have very oily skin an it makes my skin matte almost all day. I apply it to my face as I would my moisture then apply my primer and finish with my foundation and I'm ready to go. would definitely recommend this product.
I got my makeup done at Mac once and they used this product on me, and it significantly helped my oiliness, especially in my t-zone. It's honestly a great moisturizer too...I've used it alone. PERFECT for under foundation or under makeup...it's an amazing primer.
Before I had a skincare routine that consisted of using the Clarisonic Mia with Neutrogena Grapefruit Facial Cleanser, MAC's Oil Control Lotion only stopped the oils from coming to the surface for a few hours. I'd have to touch up around lunch time to keep my forehead from looking like a greasy surface. But I do have a very oily skin. Anyways, now that I have a skincare routine that evens out the oil levels on my face, this product has been able to keep my face from looking like disco ball by midday. Point of the story - have a good skincare routine down before giving up on this product because it is very good. But it works even better when you have your oily skin controlled at the base level. :)
I have used this on myself AND my clients and they love it, I love it, it works so good! I'm not sure what the other reviewer was saying about it being sticky, they must have gotten a bad product or something, because it dries completely in a minute! And blocks oil all day long!! Will continue to buy.
Fresh like water!
This moisturizer is so fresh so clean feeling it feels like you have nothing on! I do wish they made a larger size of bottle! The pump like all MAC products dispenses perfect amounts. I use it every morning I absolutely love it. Even on no make-up days its definitely my moisturizer of choice.
I have found this to be the best facial moisturizer i have every used! The moisturized has a light feeling and moisturizes well without feeling too heavy on my skin(like many other moisturizers)! I have repurchased this product MANY times and would purchase it again. I would definitely recommend the product
The only bad thing about this product is the fact that the bottles are small and and it is expensive.
I got this becuase I wanted to try out whether their skincare line is good as their make up, and theres certainly a gap. There wasn't any oil control, and it was basically the same as any other moisterizer but in a MAC bottle and £££ price tag. My main dissapointment is that it didn't reduce my oily skin but it felt sticky and oily most of the time.
I've never cheated on you and I intend not to!
I think I've gone through 3 or 4 bottles of these already. I've never counted how long they last but when it's down to the last drop it's really down to the last 2 drops! Lol
I always procrastinate, I'll get it tomorrow and somehow the 2 drops I usually use manage to come out and when it's done I still managed to get the last 2 drops for my day's make-up! I hope I don't jinx it, but for now I still have a full bottle.
Paired up with MAC's Prep and Prime SPF50(check out my review), they're a perfect combo! First apply this then apply the the Prep and Prime.
And about the 3 or 4 bottles I've used, no worries, I add it to my MAC's recyclables, save 6 and you get a free lipstick at Nordis or lipstick, lipgloss or eyeshadow at the MAC store!
