I think this is an ok foundation. It stayed matte on my oily skin, and looked fairly natural for the first hour, then turned oily. The lightest color is too PINK and the next color up 3 is too dark and pink! I would not buy--used a sample because of the low color selection. otherwise, it seems to be a good makeup for oily skin. I am an NC25 and could not find a match. I used it as a trial for a few hours, but worth a try if you can find a match.

Love it. Very light coverage, but it can be built up without your face looking pancakey. Diffuses light slightly, and leaves my face looking fresh, but without the camera-flash greasiness problems you can get with other 'light diffusing' foundations (I'm looking at you revlon and MUF!) I need a mid day blotting to combat greasiness, but that's pretty much par for the course with me, so everyone else should be ok. I've had no problems with breakouts from Minerali, and dot it on blemishes as a light concealer without any extra irritation. And the 02 latte shade is probably the best match for my skin that I have ever found.
Borghese is getting kinda hard to find, but I found it on the bloomingdale's website, and in Canada this foundation is popping up in Winners. I'm stocking up.

I love this liquid foundation. It can still be found on Borghese's website as well as Ebay and other online vendors. Some department stores may carry it such as Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdales. This foundation is very light in texture and goes on smoothly and covers well. While the directions suggest using either your fingers or a sponge to apply this foundation, I found that the best application for me is using a foundation brush which gave me the best results. Just squeeze a small bit onto your foundation brush, dot your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead and blend it in with your brush. I love that you can apply as much as you want or as little as you want smoothly and elegantly with no mess. I use an Ecotools foundation brush that I found at Walgreens ($7.99). The brush can be easily washed with mild soap and water and the brush will dry in time for the following morning. Highly recommend both this foundation as it is non-greasy and the Ecotools Foundation Brush.
