Terrible. It doesn't blend well at all and looks totally unnatural. Also, when I apply it, it feels like I'm rubbing sand on my face! It costs way too much for how bad it is. It actually did help control the shine, though, from what I could tell.

I am wearing this right now and literally want to scrape at my face, it's so frustrating. If you like foundation to do key words like "slip," "spread," "fail," "itch," "slime," "clog," and did I mention "itch," then go crazy. This stuff is for you. If not, avoid like the plague, ladies. The bottle is also terrible and impractical and forces you to use a brush. The only good thing about it is you get SO MUCH of this garbage, and as I'm not the sort to toss something unless it's giving me hives, I suppose I'll use this stupid thing up. Ugh. Whiteheads in the crease of my nose, people. I swear, I just looked at my 4 pm face in the mirror and look like an oil slick, so HOW IS THIS SHINE CONTROL?!

If you're thinking about purchasing this costly drug store foundation, DON'T. You would think that they designed this foundation for people with oily skin types not to make you look even MORE shiny and greasy. Pros: The color I chose matched my skin alright.
Cons: Gritty sand-like texture. Makes oily skin look even more oily about an hour into wearing. Made my skin break out severely. Pricey for drugstore, I paid $15. You have to pound the container on your hand to get it out. You think you wouldnt have to worry with a trusted name like Neutrogena. This is literally the WORST foundation I have ever tried and I strongly suggest anyone with oily, acne- prone, combination, or even normal to dry skin to STAY AWAY from this. I wish I would have read the reviews before purchasing this garbage. What a joke, shine control makeup that actually encourages oil build up on your face.

After trying and LOVING the shine control primer from this same line I was super excited to try the foundation. This foundation was a huge disappointment. Its very hard to get it out of the bottle I have to bang it on my hand, the texture is gritty and this does not blend well at all. I tried to salvage it by mixing a little with my sunscreen/moisturizer (for a tinted moisturizer effect) and it was still very hard to blend. If it helps anyone, I have found the best application to be using a damp blender sponge but even then the foundation doesn't blend well.

This new Neutrogena Shine Control Foundation, like most foundation bottles, doesn't come with a pump. I'm normally not bothered by it, because for most foundations, all you have to do is tilt the bottle to pour some onto the back of your hand. However, for this one, that isn't going to do the job. You literally have to turn it upside down and bang it repeatedly on the back of your hand to get some of the foundation. I was actually ok with the texture when spreading it onto my face with my flat Sigma brush. It reminded me of a thicker Estee Lauder Double Wear.
The coverage was pretty good. I'd say medium to full coverage if you build it up. The smell wasn't off-putting either.
So the deal KILLER? In all my years of wearing makeup, not one foundation has given me a gimungous, whopper ZIT right in the middle of my nose - so bad that 2 months later, the scar of it is still faintly visible. This has never happend before. Small pimples? Check. Itchy rash? Check. But for a company that's supposedly good about skin care, this product is pore clogging crud. I chucked it into the trash after a couple uses. I didn't even want to curse any of my family/friends with it by giving it away to them!

I love the coverage of this foundation. One of the cons is that I didn't really notice it do as it claims by controlling shine. My face was oily within an hour. I feel like this foundation makes my face more oily than it normally gets. Another con is that it made me get about two or three pimples. I never got pimples until I started using this product. The packaging isn't very good either. I read some reviews commenting on the "gritty texture" that's because the foundation contains rice protein complex.

I'll start with the pros. The lightest shade is a dupe of NAR's Siberia. If you're super pale & warm toned like me you'll know all too well what a pain in the *** it is to find such light shades!
I also really love the concept of this, shine controlling make up. I'm very oily & most foundations only further make me look like a greaseball.
Now for the cons... It's a shame Nuetrogena did such a bad job with this product, as it could of easily have been a best seller. My biggest complaint is the texture. Who else thought something must of been wrong with the batch they got? Ive learned that I'm not alone on this & that every bottle is the same. It's literally gritty, like dollar store toothpaste. I felt like I was applying water mixed in with sand to my face. If feeling it wasn't bad enough - trust me, it didn't look good either! The shine controlling ingredients only worked for about an hour.
I will not repurchase nor reccomend.

First, I'm extremely fair, and the classic ivory tone completely matched me. It does control my near the nose and t zone oil for hours, I apply this with a beauty sponge, and I don't notice any "cakey-ness" and then go over it with a matte powder. The only thing I can say bad about this product is that its a pain to get out of the bottle, and since there's no wand in the cap I tip it over on the back of my hand and continuously tap it till I get enough out.

Ug. Where to start with this foundation. I literally hated everything about this product. First, the packaging. This foundation has the tiniest opening I've ever seen, and the formulation is so thick that it's impossible to get out of the bottle. Second, this foundation claims to "control shine" but it made my face oilier than any foundation I've ever tried. Third, the formula. I have pale skin with pink undertones, so I tried the 20 Natural Ivory color. The other ivory option, I think Classic Ivory, was way too yellow-toned for me, but the Natural Ivory was too dark. This foundation has little grainy bits (Rice Protein Complex?) that I guess are supposed to help cut down shine. I applied this with a damp sponge, over moisturizer, and patted and blended as much as should have been necessary, and I still ended up with little grainy bits all over my skin. I don't recommend this product AT ALL. And at around $14, it's a total waste of money. Stay away!

I bought this awhile back and mind you i have combo skin, but for it to say its shine control? I got so oily from this that i felt it on my face. I like the coverage but thats about it. Overall i think with the powder it didn't help much with mattifying, I will not repurchase
