This doesn't control oil all that well for me, but I inherited oil-slick tendencies form my mom so not much does. It does add a nice polish to my skin. I don't know how to describe it - it doesn't give any coverage for my acne marks, but my skin looks more even.
I use a fluffy brush that came as a special with my mineral sheers compact to apply it, not the dinky little thing that comes in the packaging. It sets my tinted moisturizer well, and I also sometimes just wear it over concealer. I have to use blotting papers after two or three hours. I don't find that it looks chalky or powdery if I buff it in well. It feels nice on my skin too.

Love using this to set my Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer; light, natural looking not chalky; I use this product on a daily basis.
Doesn't affect my sensitive, oily skin either to boot!

I have normal skin and get a slight bit of shininess during the day. This product works great for me as a setter. If you have oily skin I could see it not working as well.

This product is pretty average but for some reason i like using it to set my makeup. The brush sucks though

I give this a three out of five because one, the oil control effect does NOT last long, and two, I wish the compact had a mirror :(. I think this looks really nice when I first apply it: it's sheer, not to powdery, and makes my skin look matte but the matte effect does not last long!!! I use this as a setting powder for my other makeup at least 20 minutes before I leave the house and by the time I leave my face is already a little oily. Too bad, I like it when I first put it on.

EDIT: I'm not liking this at all anymore, not even using it. I cannot even see a matte effect when I first put this on anymore :(

It was ok for me. I used this product when I had pre-acne-prone-skin. It did suck up the oils on my face when I needed a touch up but it didn't last long. I found myself continuously having to reapply. Make my face noticeably powdery. Isn't it supposed to be translucent? I didn't like that because I wanted something that would not add extra color on my face.

I love love love this powder. It is just what I'm looking for. The only reason I took a lippie off is because I wish the compact had a mirror in it and because it's not really translucent, but still very sheer. It gives me a matte finish but still leaves me with a beautiful glow. The oil-control is nice but not great, and the skin conditioners in it keep my face from getting dry, which is SO nice because my face can get flakey and dry just as easily as it can get oily. The colors blend well on my light yellow undertoned skin color as well!

i love how this powder isnt one color, it blends in. its light weight .i feel soft and oil free, but i do have to say that the oil coverage doesnt last. sometimes when i put it on its powdery. i love this for touch ups.

First the Pros:
It's truly translucent, does not look powdery, never get's cakey, does not sink into pores, absorbs oil well (due to the Zea Mays in it), and doesn't cause breakouts.
Now the Cons:
The packaging SUCKS, I'd much prefer a puff than a brush, this costs too much, for the high price you'd think they'd at least include a mirror in the compact, but there isn't one, making touch-ups throughout the day inconvenient. This would be a definite re-buy for me, if it were packaged in a traditional style compact.

This item was surprisingly decent. I think neutrogena makes some really good products for people with acne or oily/combination skin. I use the color 'clear' and it's perfect for me. I love the mosiac thing because sometimes I'll get tan and I'll use the darker spots on my face and the lighter spots underneath my eyes or on my chin. It is pretty good oil control and a decent product and the little brush is great
UPDATE: on my second compact and I'm devoted! I think it does great oil control and doesn't make my skin break out. Love this product
