M.A.C. of the week

This week I picked the oil control lotion for the M.A.C. of the week.

This is the BEST Oil-Control product I have ever used! I get oily in my T-Zone and I normally have a shiny face a few hours after I apply my make-up. I  moved to Florida last year and I needed something (with the crazy humidity) to keep my makeup on. I found this a few months ago, and have been using it ever since. I can go (at least) six hours without any powder touch-ups. I have not noticed any acne flair-ups using this lotion. This product is lightweight, absorbs quickly, and is perfect for oily or combination skin (in my opinion). You should always use a moisturizer on your skin before your primer and makeup. It will do wonders for the way your skin looks and feels. It also seems to give my makeup more of a staying power.  I like to use this as my moisturizer before my makeup because of the oil control and then I use my regular moisturizer at night. I buy the smaller size because it fits better in my makeup bag and I can get more product buying two of these then if I spent one dollar more on the big one.

What M.A.C. has to say about it...
The ultimate no-shine base for oil control. Natural exfoliants help improve texture and clarity. Lightweight and instantly matte, bonds makeup to the skin for fewer touch-ups. Oil-free hydration with natural colloidal minerals and antioxidants. Formulated to keep skin pH-balanced. Use day or night.

This comes in two sizes  30 ml / 1.0 US fl oz for $15.00 or 50 ml / 1.7 US fl oz for $31.00. You can buy it at

or anywhere that MAC is sold.

Is this something that you have been looking for? Do you already have a great oil control lotion that you use?
