CREASE CENTRAL ON MY FACE!!!.... Oil control? NONE......... Long lasting? if you call 3 hours long...yes.... Extremely oily skin girls beware. I wanted to love it! :(
It goes on perfect it makes my skin look amazing, but within 2-3 hours I get super oily, even with my routine to control my oil it doesnt work. It also turns a shade darker after a while. I still use it from time to time but I dont think I'll be repurchasing again...unless I find something that I can combine it with and it wont make me oily.

This highlighting concealer makes me look SO AWAKE when I'm reallly running on 3 hours of sleep! I love it! It didnt crease and it didnt wear off either. I'm done buying high end concealer for everyday use. I'm set with this lil baby!
I Love this product!!! I do feel my dark circles are going away slowly but surely and it makes me look more awake! It did crease on me a lil bit but I have extremely oily skin :( so I'm sure it has to do with that. I took one lippe off because of the packaging. I hate the sponge. I feel like I'm just rubbing old makeup over and over. But i try and clean with alcohol to make myself feel better. Im pretty pale and use the shade Light. Also, I put it over my acne and it didnt make it worse. I like to think its making my blemishes lighter.

I absolutely LOVE this foundation for its cost. I have super oily acne prone skin and after a week of using it, my skin has calmed down. Like any other product (foundation) I use, I always use Milk of magnesium under and Mattify Ulta powder on top and underneath all my makeup. It's a life saver! So all my oily skinned gals try this and it will work. As for the taking the acne away, not so much. But my skin is clearing up and I haven had a break out. As for the coverage, I think it a good coverage, Medium to full. I think its a the perfect amount of coverage.
It's a love and hate product. I love how well it covers and actually controls my shine but its so thick. I feel like I'm wearing a mask. Also, it's not the exact shade. I look like a ghost and the next color makes me look pink. I only use it when I go out at night or sometimes as concelear. It's not a bad product if you love FULL blown coverage. I have acne scars and some acne and it cover everything!. I dont think I'll be buying this produck again. :(
I bought this product because I got a sample from sephora and I loved it! But within a week or two my skin started looking very oily after a few hours. I am extremely oily and I had heard this was good for oily skinned gals. I use mattiffying moisturizers, smashbox primer in light and mattifying translucent powder on top. When I want fuller coverage I put Mac's mineralized powder on top and it looks great! But, after a while its starts coming off, in tiny lil spots, like my pores it makes my pores stick out. Iím very sad because I loved how this looks, not I have an almost full bottle that I wonít be able to use. Im going to try different ways to use it in order to not let it go to waste.

I absolutely love this product since I'm extremely oily. I usually put this over my foundation and it works wonders for it's price. I wish the made the packaging different so I can take it in my purse without being afraid of it opening up. Anywho, Oily skin girls try this! If it doesnt work, you didnt lose much but I'm sure it will.

O-M-G!!! Let me start off by saying I have super, extremely, unattractive oily skin and if that isnít bad enough, its acne prone. I used Proactiv but for some reason that made my skin even more oily so I stopped using it and my face didnít get as oily anymore, but the acne started but it started clearing up eventually (that's a whole other story) ... Any who, I started using this on top of my Monistat chafing gel (which is awesome primer for oily skin and inexpensive) and then followed by my foundation, either Revlon Colorstay for oily skin or Make Up Forever Velvet Matte foundation. After i applied my foundation I set it with this powder and it looks flawless. I went out to a club that was hot and crowded and with all the dancing I thought my face would be a mess, so I went to the bathroom to retouch and my skin was still matte and perfect. I was amazed. The next day I wore it all day on a sunny day... Usually within 3 hours my face looks like I rubbed butter on top of it, but this time it didnít. By then end of the night my T-Zone had a bit of shine, but I just blot it and it went back to normal which I can tolerate as in comparison to butter face. If you have oily skin try this! its cheap! and very effective!!!. I've tried ALOT of high end products and none compare to this.
