Ehhh ... just ok. Yeah it was mat which is good for oily skin but the coverage was just not what I am comfortable with and didn't last the 8 hours I am at work. I keep on going back to my Estee Lauder Double Wear which I have been using for at least 5 years now! It's worth a try which I am always open to ... but there is much better out there!

Reallly wanted to love it, since I have oily, acne-prone skin that has some redness and marks. It does great with coverage and it definitely dries matte, however I found that after using it for a few days it dried my face out so bad that I started peeling around my nose and mouth. Also looked cakey beneath my eyes. Had to return it :(

This is awesome! I have oily/combo acne prone suuuuper sensitive skin and this did not break me out. It is a little drying around my mouth area. It does dry matte. Coverage is medium. Very dark acne marks need a dot of cover up. Makes my face look flawless. Squeeze bottle is hygenic. TIP: I squeeze the air out before I put the cap back on so that when I open it again the air pressure doesn't cause it to squirt everywhere. I've really been wanting to try the MUFE Face & Body but havn't got around to that one yet. I don't mind paying more for quality products but I honestly feel this one is a tad expensive for such a small amount.

I have a really wierd skin - I have rosacia with lots of pit scars and crater pores. Oh yes, my skin is oily, sensitive and COLD toned too (most FD either make me too pink or too yellow). I tried to match Nars Sheer Glow but it was too sallow looking on me (I tried 4 shades - from Deuville to Santa Fe). I never was able to pull of any liquid FD as they a) Don't match my pale skin with lots of redness and uneveness b) break me out (MUF does have silicone in it but I guess it is a different grade as I read not all of silicones are the same and doesn't clogg me). So far I love this and I am very hyper- allergic (I will update if I break out) but I don't even itch from it (Hmm... Lancome, Nars). I am 30 (Porcelain) and when I put it on - THAT'S HOW MY SKIN SHOULD LOOK!!! Flawless, matte but not flat. I don't need a concealer with it. If you have huge pores like me it might actually work. As mine looked so unnoticible unless you put your face really close. As for the staying power - I need only to blot and put powder in 3-4 hours (for me it is a record) and it looks fresh again.
Definitly give it a try!!!

I really liked this foundation's formula, but I just couldn't find a shade to match my olive complexion... I found most of them too beige for my skin.
It's a great formula and I'm so jealous of you beige undertones right now... I'm an oily skin, too and this is just amazing...
I would purchase if the expanded the shades :) **
I think the packaging can be better...it looks like Clinique's... Meh..

I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! Though I don't have oily skin, I'm the type of gal who will sweat in the arctic - less than 5 minutes after I put on other foundations, they are sliding off my face and I often just rely on concealer which really only makes me sweat more. Powder only settles into my 'fine' lines as powder will do when moist... I don't know how or why this works, but I am nice and dry for hours after I put this on, and even if I do sweat, I can blot w/ tissue and the foundation remains in place (I do occasionally have to reapply to my nose as I am also a constant nose blower - LUCKY ME!!!). The price is a bit on the high side but a little goes a long way and for what it does, it's like liquid gold to me. I can't honestly answer about packaging as I was given an ENORMOUS sample by a Sephora SA and so I won't need to buy my own bottle for a while but I hope it isn't a pain to get out of the bottle... either way, I'm buying this great goop in bulk if possible!!! Thank you MUFE!!!!

I have oily skin, but with dry patches. I am an NC25 and was matched to a 30 in this foundation...I dont know if this was really the best they could do, because after putting it on my whole face at home (away from sephora lighting) it does not look like a good color match. It does keep me from looking oily, especially when set with MUFE HD powder but it also has a powdery finish by itself, so it does not look natural on me. I definitely look like Im wearing foundation. It also highlights any dry areas you may have on your face, but this is with all mattifying foundations. I do love the bottle, it is very hygienic and you can actually use all of the product, and you dont have to worry about breaking it if you drop it.
EDIT: I was rematched to a 40 and it looks much better!
I HATE that they dont put the # of your foundation color on the bottle so you have no idea what color you have. I tried taking in my second bottle to repurchase (the darker one) and we couldnt figure out what it was between two of the colors. That just seems like a glaring oversight on the part of the company; why would you make it harder to figure out what color the consumer had?

Love this product! full coverage, matte finish, matches my skin perfectly! My skin looks healthy with this on, which can't be said for some other foundations I have used. This is by far my favorite foundation and it feels fantastic on my face. Could not be better and the price is not atrocious.

This is my 3rd bottle and my fave foundation. It's the only thing I've found that matches my skin. I use Alabaster. It covers well and keeps the oil away.

I tried this foundation a couple weeks ago, and I LOVE IT. I first applied it with my fingers, but I didn't think it was anything special. I then purchased the Sonia Kashuk version of the Beauty Blender (it's the same quality, but half the price) and tried applying the foundation with that. I immediately fell in love. I used this every day and it gives the most flawless look. My big problem with foundations is when they actually look like foundation (cakey..). When I wear this, it really looks like I'm not wearing any makeup at all. It stays on all day/night, so I don't even have to touch it up. My skin is mostly normal, but I still use a powder over this and it doesn't look cakey. Don't be afraid of the name, because it's not too drying at all. Actually, it can be used for a very sheer coverage foundation, and it's buildable to give full coverage. Overall, this is the best foundation I've ever tried. I recommend it 100%, but to get the best effect, I recommend using the Beauty Blender or the Sonia Kashuk sponge. The only bad thing is that I'm afraid of when the product starts to run out. I feel like the packaging is going to make it really hard to reach the last bit of product.
