My Thoughts: At first, I didn't really like this foundation at all. My skin is on the dry side, and in the winter it gets to Sahara-like proportions. This definitely would be a foundation that works best on oily skin that can use a little oil-sucking. Needless to say, it dried me out a bit. However, I do have to say that it really worked great on drying out my acne as well! By the next day, my skin was noticeably clearer.
The color didn't oxidize on my skin, and it matched me really well. I used a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply it and buff it into the skin. It gave a believable finish to the skin, not too heavy and made up, but it also gave me enough coverage to dull out the redness of the breakouts. My acne hadn't been picked at and opened up. It was unextracted white heads or red bumps that hadn't developed into a full blown zit yet.
Final Verdict: I love this foundation for around "that time of the month" when my skin is starting to freak out, but I can't use it for more than 3-4 days in a row with my dry skin. I'm really looking forward to using it during the summer when I don't have to worry about that.
