I'm also surprised to hear so many complaints about this product. I happened to find one in a clearance bin at my local bed bath and beyond (yes, my bb&b sells makeup) and picked it up on a whim, just cuz it was like $2 or so. I got it in true ivory and it's a perfect match with my skin tone. I tossed the sponge and just use a flat top brush to buff it into my skin. And I love it! It's not super heavy coverage at all, i I would say it's fairly light coverage, and it does mattify my skin and take away the oilies in my t-zone. I just got a teensy bit of a tanrecently, so it's the perfect shade for me right now. I'm probably an NC25 or so in MAC. I've had absolutely no issues with it turning orange on me. It claims 6 hour of shine free and I would say that's just about right. After that, I need to start touching up. The only bummer is that I don't see this color as an option anymore on the Rimmel site, and I've actually never seen this product anywhere with the regular Rimmel stuff in stores. I only saw it in that clearance pile. Which makes me think I'll never be able to find it again. Bummer really, because I quite like it
