This product works best on oily or normal skin. I've been using this product in colour NC30 for about 4 years and recently started to only wear this during the summertime because my skin tends to be oilier then. Also, the dual coverage of the foundation and powder is perfect for quick application when I spend more time outdoors. In the winter months when my skin is drier, I switch to using their matte liquid foundation instead - I normally stick with MAC because they offer great colours for Asian and olive skin tones. The compact is also great because it keeps the sponge away from the product, neatly tucked underneath.
