Lisa Eldridge was right, this foundation is amazing on acne-prone skin. I trust what she says and I bought it a couple of months ago when I watched that video. As a spot treatment on covering acne it works great. If I used this as a face foundation, I find that it's a bit too thick. I like to put MAC's face & body all over and cover up redness and scaring with dermablend. If you have scaring and acne the coverage is incredible. Two problems I found though. (1) The shade selection. Terrible. There's only like 5 shades. I bought 25, but it was too orange, but I liked it enough to purchase another tube in 15. Of course 15 is way too light, so I have to mix the two. That's annoying, because they should expand their shade range. (2) Finally, I find it can make my face greasy, especially if I wear it alone. Also there's no way that I can get 12 hours with this foundation. I don't find it long wearing at all and I'm lucky if I get 5 hours before it fades and gets shiny. My skin isn't oily and I always use powder anyways, but I seem to get a sheen no matter what. I do think this foundation is worth the extra time and effort, and I will keep repurchasing it. UPDATE: I haven't repurchased this one. The shade selection is terrible and I think the Laura Mercier's silk cream foundation is much better. I'm willing to pay more for a foundation shade that matches!
