I am NW 20 and I use the combo/oily line in Sand Beige. I am on a constant lookout for a ds dupe for MUFE Mat Velvet +
The first time I tried this I just dotted on my skin and then blended with my hands and fingers. I was really bummed--it looked SO cakey and mask like. I didn't even wait to see how it lasted throughout the day....I just washed my face and went back to my MUFE. A MuA'er recommended I try it with a sponge and stipple. So after awhile I decided to give it a try. What a difference a wet sponge and stippling makes! This went on so smoothly and had such a nice finish--not matte but not dewy. Even as I built coverage, it didn't cake or sink into my pores but just left my skin looking perfect. I couldn't stop looking at my skin in my rearview on the way to work.
Last week I tried this with a beauty blender and the results were even better! I seriously looked airbrushed. I apply my primer and let it dry. Then I stipple the foundation on in sections (I do it in quarters) with my beauty blender and let it dry. Then I re-do. Two applications is seriously full coverage but not masky. I think 3 would be overkill but one would be ok....I just like the look of 2 layers for a long day at work.
Now for lasting quality--it does last all day with a blot and powder touchup. I notice it tends to get shinier near my nose where I am oiliest and can look a teeny bit cakey. I attribute that more to my touchup powder (still searching for the HG) than the foundation. But it doesn't transfer and I don't feel greasy--the coverage lasts all day. Even better-no breakouts!
This can be hard to remove--I massage jojoba oil into my face and then follow with a cleanser.
I don't like the bottle-wish it had pump-and it is a little expensive for ds, but given I was spending $40 on MUFE for every day wear this is much better. The drugstores often have sales so you can get it cheaper then. Definitely worth a try.

For reference I'm 150 Buff, combo skin more towards the dry side, occasional acne with some rosacea/redness.
I have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. I've been using it for about a year now and I will probably keep using it even though it has some big downsides. I don't really mind the packaging because I just give it a shake with my finger over the top of the opening and get a dab on my finger. I apply this foundation with my fingers since I find this warms it up and makes it look the least fake. The reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because of the really amazing coverage (full) and the staying power.
-Long lasting even without primer
-Good color match (very pale, yellowish rather than pink)
-Covers acne, redness and dark spots
-gets into my pores and is hard to clean off
-breaks me out a bit if I'm not very diligent about scrubbing it all off my skin
-GHOSTFACE in flash photographs
-not natural - it looks like I'm wearing foundation
This is my everyday foundation, with physician's formula powder applied on top. Still looking for something better...

I brought this in Natural Tan in the Oily/Combination Skin. Have used it for about one month now, on and off for nights out. I like that it has little SPF, which makes it photo friendly, so you don't appear ghostly with flash of camera. It provides me with a medium to full coverage, covering redness, my dark circles and blemishes. I feel that I can skip concealer with this foundation. It's not something I would use for everyday, but use it for going out. It applies nice and smoothly and gives a matte finish when dried, but needed to work fast to blend it in. I use a foundation brush and it works fine. I hate the packaging. Wish they would put it into a pump form like the Photoready foundation. It would make life so much simpler, and would waste less product as it is about $40 NZD. This foundation really does stay put. After a big night out, my foundation stayed put. It didn't streak, run or oxidise on my face. My face was still semi-matte afterwards, but I did touch up on powder during the night. It was a pain to remove. Needed at least 3 makeup wipes to completely remove ALL the foundation. Luckily, it didn't break me out. I would repurchase this again as it is by far the best foundation I have used in terms of drugstore products. It's a bit pricey in NZ, but worth it in my opinion as one bottle of this will last me a decent amount of time.

I hated this product!!!! Now the concealer was actually very good and covered my dark circles amazingly. But oh my goodness. I put this foundation on at like 6:30 in the morning then go to school. It does okay with controlling oil, but not good enough. I was still very oily. I caught myself looking in the mirror a lot but I don't know how I missed this. Anyways, I get in my car at the end of the day and look in my mirror and my dear lord. My face is blotchy, oily and ugly. There were uneven patches all over my face and it was like the foundation just seeped downward, leaving orange to take its place. Orange was everwhere. I was embarrassed!!! So I took that thing back the second I realized how horrible it was. I will never buy it again.

Love love love this foundation! I have a very a uneven skin tone and some acne scarring and this foundation does a great job covering it all up. It's definitely a medium to full coverage foundation so it's great for someone like me. I also like that is dries to a matte finish because I have oily skin. Probably one of the best drugstore foundations in my opinion.

This is my absolute favorite foundation. I have pretty oily skin, but this foundation helps me stay matte. I'm also fair and neutral, and I've found shades that suit me for everyday wear, and for the summertime.

PHENOMENAL!!!!! Does everything that you would want a liquid foundation to do. SUPERB!!! Better than any department store foundation..... Just needs to have a pump. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! It better be around forever!
EDIT: Out of curiosity, I went ahead & tried a few more high-end foundatiions, (just to be sure...) NOT ONE even comes close to this!! I still LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!! This is the world's BEST liquid foundation.....

The scent or perfume, whatever is in this, is overwhelming. When I first applied this, I could barely stand it. I'm searching for something better than this. Very disappointing after all the great reviews.

My skin got dray and grey, using this fondation!

I didnt realise how much I loved this foundation until I tried other products! I have very oily skin and tried this based on the reviews on MUA. Was pleased with it but once my bottle finished I wanted to try other products. After trying Chanel Mat Lumier, No 7 Combination mat and Maybeline mineral foundation I went back to this and Im so glad I did! It keeps my very oily skin under control for most if not all of the day, is a great colour on me (buff), is buildable for better coverage and I think compared to the Chanel and No.7 is excellent value for money!
My only downside is the bottle, I so wish it had a pump! Please Revlon, it would be perfect then!!
