I'm LOVING this foundation! I still am partial to my Smooth Minerals Liquid foundation though. I reach for that one more because it reminds me of a tinted moisturizer, but I still love this one. Avon got it right this time! The packaging is perfect! Great pump! I match NC40 in Studio Fix Fluid, NW35 in Pro Longwear (MAC), & I'm Stromboli in NARS Sheer Glow, & Medium Beige is the PERFECT match for me in this. (I wear Pure Beige in Smooth Minerals liquid, which is slightly more yellow toned, while this is more neutral toned.) My skin is dry in the winter, and more oily (esp in the T-Zone). It is starting to get drier again (esp on my forehead), while my T-Zone still tends to get oily. With Smooth Minerals Liquid, I usually set it with MAC Studio Careblend pressed powder. However, I don't need to set this one at all. It applies so smoothly on my skin, like butter (but not greasy). This blends into my skin like a dream and has good coverage. This lasts me all day until I take it off, and I don't have to set it or touch up at all. This is more of a medium coverage foundation, though it can be built up. I prefer the Smooth Minerals Liquid for everyday use, because I usually like lighter coverage. When I want more coverage, I definitely reach for this. It's great & affordable! Hope Avon keeps this one around.
update* 10/6/11- I used this Monday and Tuesday of this week, after not using it for a while. (I've been faithful to my MAC Pro Longwear NW35 which is my perfect match ever and is good with controlling my combo/oily skin.) I decide to try this out again. My tan is going away, and my skin is getting lighter as the weather is changing into fall/winter. This shade is PERFECT for me: Medium-Beige. This glides on so soft and smooth, like a dream. It blends like a dream and feels good on. The coverage is great, especially paired with a dusting of my MAC Studio Careblend pressed powder. However, halfway through my day, my t-zone was getting oily! Mind you, I NEVER have to set my MAC Pro Longwear foundation and I don't get oily with it on. I was getting oily with this, and I definitely had to blot. If only this foundation controlled oil and looked as good at the end of the day as it did in the begging, this would be PERFECT. The pump is fabulous. This might work better for me when my skin is drier in the winter. If you're oily, you will have to blot with this
