I don't even have super oily skin to begin with, just combination with a slightly oily T-zone. This literally made me whole face look like a grease ball and it oxidised within a few hours. Shades are limited too and the foundation is WAY too dark for me after it oxidised. Was expensive because I'm in Australia and I bought this bottle of crap for like $70-80. Now its just sitting on my desk being pretty :( gotta love the packaging though..
With references to shade, I purchased the foundation in O20. Nice match for winter but after awhile it seems to appear whiter on my face. I'm not sure..maybe just the lighting. But best matched shade I have ever found! Nice foundation. My friend told me she loved it when she bought it and urged me to try it out, and she had similar skin type to me (oily - mine is more combination) and so I gave it a try since my Chanel Mat Lumiere does not control my oil at all..and has no colour match for me. Well, to be honest..it looked quite bad. I wanted it to look good :( Anywhoo, foundation has a nice finish. I finish it off with Shiseido's Translucent Loose Powder. Can't explain it but its a medium coverage..maybe towards the lighter end and has a thin consistency..HOWEVER! It dries a lot quicker than I expected. Compared to the Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Natural Finish Foundation (similar texture and consistency) I found that the Shiseido dried a lot faster. Oil control...itssss ok. The SA that helped me out says it can last for 15 hours. I had it on today from 6.30am until about 5pm..blotted and powdered once. Oil did break through around my nose and chin area after about 5-6 hours but besides from that everywhere else was ok. Hmm what else. Price? I paid $70 or $72 for the bottle, but thats because I live in Australia and HE foundations are usually around that price..if not more. I like the packaging! Squeeze bottle is very convenient and you can somewhat control how much product you squirt out. Oh forgot to add that when I finish it off with NARS loose powder..oiliness was a bit better. So maybe it was the translucent powder? I'm not sure. Would I buy it again? For now, yes. Overall I really like this product besides the fact that oil kind of breaks through around my nose after a while but that happens with 99.9% of my foundations anyway. Finish is great, easy to apply, nice coverage and very natural looking :) I use it everyday!
