A sales associate at Sephora once told me that I needed to avoid this foundation because it would "clog my pores and cause acne." I have sensitive/acne-prone skin so I figured that was all I needed to hear to never want to use it. I use two topical retinoids and certain areas of my face, mainly my chin and jawline, tend to flake/peel. Even with heavy moisturizing my foundation seems to justs sit on top of the flakes. When I started to look into moisturizing/hydrating foundations, I rediscovered MUFE F&B. To my surprise, during my research I read that it actually wasn't very likely to be bad for sensitive/acne-prone skin. I wear shade 38 Pink Porcelain which is a perfect match for my N12 neutral-leaning-cool skin. Unfortunately, I have yet to apply this with a foundation brush without tons of streaking. When I use a cosmetic wedge, the results are quite nice. The coverage is light but it's somewhat buildable. I see a tiny bit of flakiness showing through, but not nearly as much as before. But remember, I'm an extreme case with ridiculously dry skin from two topical retinoids. Considering all of that, I'm pretty happy with this foundation.

UPDATE: Well don't I feel silly. After reading more reviews I tried applying this with my Sigma F80, and WOW does it make a difference! Absolutely zero streaking, and it's so much more buildable than before. If you are looking for more coverage and have an F80, I would really recommend using it.

UPDATE: I've been using this foundation regularly for almost 5 months now and I'm almost finished with my first bottle. I have around 4 or 5 foundations in my rotation, and this is definitely the one I reach for the most often. I no longer use topical retinoids so flaking is no longer an issue. I still prefer to apply with the Sigma F80 as it gives me the best finish. I changed my overall rating from a 4 to a 5. I highly recommend this foundation.
