MAC just never goes far enough for me. I'm relatively new to MAC (five years) so I don't have that affinity that many seem to, not having grown up with the brand and perhaps using it exclusively at first. If they say matte, it's not matte enough. Long wear, not long wearing enough, relative to other brands and their claims / performance.

This and the MAC Refined Zone …

Although it's named "matte" and therefore implies that it is more than just a primer because it will provide extra oil control, it doesn't hold up on very oily skin.

I've used multiple matte gels and primers and this one ranks low for oil control. Now, if it didn't claim to be 'matte,' that wouldn't be a problem. But it does. It likely works …

I have a love-hate relationship with this.
It's definitely marketed for oily skin but I'd say it's more for normal to combination skin.
I personally don't like these silicone gel types for oily or very oily skin because I find that they don't offer much if any oil control.

I noticed its now $22 for .85oz but when I was using this back in middle …

This is really good for smoothing over big pores. Kinda amazing. The best I tried I think. After a few hours I do have to apply again, but I feel like it's worth it.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this product yet! It is one of my very favourite products, and it comes at a surprisingly reasonable price.

MAC is my overall go to brand of make up for pretty much everything, but when I found this hidden gem over 5 years ago I couldn't believe how much I loved it. I personally use this product as a primer, which it sounds like a lot …

I use this as MU Primer under my liquid fdtn (my HG is MAC ProLongWear liquid!!). I cleanse, tone & apply MAC Oil Control Lotion (as moisturizer)...then I apply MAC Matte as a primer which it reminds me a bit of benefit porefessional in that it feels really like its '-cone-y' but I just face it that I have to carry blot papers & MAC Blot Powder w me in my bag for midday touch …Read more

I have repurchased twice already. I love this product. I use it to put over the areas where I have fine lines. It fills them in and keeps my Estée Lauder Doublewear from settling in my fine lines. I couldn't live without it!!!! It doesn't smell and it goes on really smooth. Thanks for another great product MAC!!!!

This is the only primer I have ever used, and it probably has turned me away from primers in general. It' s supposed to mattify the skin, but i have sunscreens that can mattify better than that.

I have combination skin and used a small amount of this on my T-zone. I have tried it under my foundation and mixed with my foundation and it got me extremely oily and shiny within an …

It doesn't give me hours and hours of oil control, but then nothing has yet. It doesn't stop foundation from sitting in my pores completely, but it does it better than anything else has.

I don't quite understand what some people are saying when they say it feels heavy or greasy. I use a pea-sized amount over my whole face. It slides around like the silicone-based primer …
