I have mixed-feelings about this foundation. At first, I really liked it. My skin felt great,appeared luminous and even-toned, and held up through the whole day with just a powder touch up at lunch. Even received some compliments on my skin. Was great during the overcast winter months. Saw it in bright daylight this morning and was horrified. My face was an ashy, greyish beige and looked completely different from my neutral, slightly golden beige neck. Thought maybe I was using too light of a color, so I picked up the next darker shade. Whoa-orange chalk! Too bad, because this really did feel great on my skin.

Ugh, hated this for my undereye circles. Went on very thick and pasty. Even felt tacky when dry. Did not blend in well with the drier skin under my eyes - looked thick and crepey. Smells like paint. Worked well for covering a pimple and the redness on the sides of my nose, though. Staying power is very good, still had patches of it on after taking a shower; had to really rub to get the rest off.

Oh, I like this! My Studio Fix has been making my face itch lately, so after reading the raves here I decided to try it out. It goes on a little drier, but I haven't gotten the oilies either, and its been four hours since I put it on. The color, Classic Ivory, blends in perfectly, even better than the C3 that the folks at MAC suggest each time. It is a fairly light covereage, but thats all I want for everyday use. My fiance thinks it makes my skin look really nice and natural. Application is quick, and since I'm always in a rush before work, its great. My only dislike so far is that the sponge is too small. EDIT ***I like this product even more now that its gotten warmer and more humid in Atlanta. It really controls the oil for most of the day and is especially great for days when I don't want to wear a lot of make up (or woke up late!). Very quick and easy. I do use a larger sponge though. I will agree that it can look a bit powdery when first applied, but after about 30 min it mixes with my skin oils and darkens a touch resulting in a perfect color match. ***Update - I find that I like the simply powder foundation much better. The color is not as pale and it is not a chalky.
