"Meh" is basically my feelings on this product- it was mediocre. It's not any different from a drugstore product at all, and frankly I find it worse than a majority of them. It doesn't blend well and I find that it does not cover what I want it to (this however might just be due to the fact that it's medium coverage instead of full). I will not be buying this again or really anything from Mary Kay.

Let me start saying that I don't have a lot of experience when it comes to foundation. The only one I tried before de MK one was one from Avon (wich I don't remember the name, but I believe it was from the cheapest range, Colortrend) - and that was a nightmare. So after that I decided that foundations were not good at all for oily/combination skin such as mine - until I tried this one. It gives a good coverage with a tiny amount of product, so it lasts a long time too. Of course I wouldn't use it when it's like 35ºC outside (any makeup would melt), but on normal days it stays fairly well without making my skin more oily than already is. As for holding back the oiliness (is that word correct?), I don't think it makes wonders, but I never saw any foundation that would. For that you might consider skin care treatment and a primer. Anyway, back to this product: great coverage, smooth skin, doesn't clog pores and is very light. Have repurchased several times already.UPDATE (feb.2012): I am more experienced now on foundations, having tried Clinique Superbalanced and MAC Studio Fix. These two are very nice as well, but the Clinique one does not hold the oil at all during the summer. The MAC one is really handy because it's simple to apply, so the MAC and MK are the best foundations I have. Really satisfied, with both of them. For everyday I tend to use the MAC one since it is so simple and quick and easy and I can skip powder, but when I want something with a nicer finish and coverage, I reach for the MK one.

This foundation did not seem to be anymore special than what I can buy at a drug store. It feels nice when I wear it I do have to set it with a power and it looks nice but it is no better than any other liquid foundation.

My has been selling Mary Kay ever since I was a little girl, the only reason I do not like this product is because for a "medium-coverage" foundation it leaves my skin looking extremely cakey. It does not look natural at all! I do not like it.EDIT: So I recently started using this foundation again but this time with a foundation brush and not the sponge and I must say I completely change my mind about this foundation. I guess foundation really also has to do with the way you apply it and with what. I like that I started using it again with the foundation brush, it comes out really beautiful and smooth, not cakey at all like I mentioned before in my review..<3

I used this mary kay foundation for years. It offers good buildable coverage, feels a bit sticky but dries to a good soft finish. I definitely required setting powder and touch ups thru-out the day to control oil, however I am extremely oily and I touch up ANY foundation that I have used. Cons of this products are dealing with the Mary Kay Reps. I am not a fan of the "facial parties" nor the pushy tactics they use to get you to purchase the products. The price is good but once you purchase you are then on their calling/email list and it's all about getting you to become a rep yourself. This is the reason I do not use this anymore, I now walk into a drug store and buy Revlon colorstay and amazingly the girl behind the counter takes my money hassle free!!!Good products just not a fan of the company.

I purchased this foundation based on the recommendation of a Mary Kay sales rep who convinced me that it would work for my oily/combination skin. Upon trying it out, I was really not impressed. i bought the color "Ivory 200" which is a light ivory color with yellow undertones (in the TUBE). When I first put the foundation on my skin the colour seemed right. However, after about 15 or 20 minutes, the foundation changed colour and had a slightly pink and ashy tone to it, completely unlike the original colour. The coverage I wouldn't even rightfully say is "medium", it is in fact very sheer and I had to layer on about 2 layers of this foundations, after which I still saw dark circles under my eyes. The texture was "sticky" and hard to blend. After the foundation set on my face and dried, my face literally felt tight and I felt like I was wearing a "mask". It failed to control the oiliness on my face. After about 30 minutes my T-zone was shiny while my cheeks and the areas under my eyes look really dry (NOT good). I was so dissapointed in this product that I returned it and got a refund.

Broke me out bad. I like some of Mary kays products but I have sensitive skin so this did not work. I like the Mineral Powder foundation better.

I do not like the lid on this tube of foundation AT ALL. It is too heavy for the tube and I am often knocking the tube over in my medicine cabinet. Otherwise I love this product. The ivory 104 shade matches my peaches and cream complexion perfectly and I love how little of it I use to cover my entire face. It doesn't control the oil on my nose as much as it claims it does, but my face feels and looks smooth and clean when I'm wearing it.

I received this foundation in a swap earlier this week and have been using it every day not. So far, I relaly like it. I don't have oily skin so I didn't notice anything in that department but it has great coverage thats really natural looking. Not mask-like, no caking, no smudge. It's a great foundation, I prefer powder but this liquid is something I will continue to use.

I really wanted to like this, especially because the price is so affordable compared to the high end stuff I usually use. Alas, it made me break out, and once my skin got worse, it did not cover up the blemishes at all. It goes on great and controls the oiliness on my skin - but I can't stand how it made ALL my existing pimples larger and inflame into whiteheads. Sad to say I'll be returning it and not buying Mary Kay again :(
