Final Say/Summary: This foundation is NOT for oily-skinned people. I repeat, DO NOT buy this if you have oily skin. (I'll explain why in a second.) That being said, I must say that this foundation goes on beautifully. You only need a little for light coverage but you can really build it to a medium coverage if you use more. The finish is satin and very-much like natural skin. Unfortunately, during the testing period I found that this foundation will not hold off oil. For someone who is really oily like me, you will end up looking like a grease-ball with this foundation in only a few hours. Don't say I didn't warn you!
However, if you have normal skin this would probably be the perfect foundation for you. It has the perfect finish; the texture is fantastic and is easy to apply. It's not really dewy or matte. Like I said earlier, looks quite natural. If you get a good color match, you should not be able to really detect it unless you're within a foot range if you apply it lightly. Also, this foundation is really good because it sits on top of your skin and not sinking in. In other words, this is great for people with large pores or acne-pit scars.
So... in general, don't buy if you're oily unless you plan on wearing this foundation for less than three hours. If you have normal skin then give this foundation a go! If you have dry skin, you should really moisturize well to use this because any dry patches will show up.
