I bought this powder a while ago, I think when it first came out. For starters, I don't have any oil problem with my face getting oily or anything, so I can't really comment on how well this would control oil (if it even does). But, I will say this powder does accentuate on dry spots on your face, so this is not good for use in the winter. It also looked very cakey & never gave me a nice, natural finish. I even tried using this by itself, without foundation...& it still didn't do anything special for me. & as someone else had mentioned, there aren't that many color selections to choose from for this. I ended up getting a color that was too light for my skin tone, so it made me look whiter than I really was (which is a no-go in my book). This never made me break out though, so that's why I gave it 2 points, instead of one. Personally, I still don't think this is a good powder. But, everyone is different. What works for me, might not work for you, & vice versa. The only way to really know, is to try it for yourself. I still wouldn't reccommend this though, I think there are much better powders that you can get at a drugstore than this.
