I have very oily skin and prone to breakouts but this product was recommended on a acne website because of its non-clogging ingredients. Unfortunately it is not good for oily skin--i almost immediately looked shiny even with applying a loose powder. It is discontinued, but found it on amazon, so I bought 3 colors not knowing which would be the one. I like Buff because it isn't pinky and is light but not too light. I'm bummed out because it is so hard to find a product that doesn't cause breakouts and will help control shine. UPDATE: I have been using this foundation with Mattify powder and the combination is wonderful. It really makes your skin look wonderful and doesn't break you out. Without a powder you may shine if you are oily, but it is a very nice foundation for acne prone skin.

This foundation is really nice. I know people have said it's dark, but you need to rub it on your face and it lightens up. I have marks on my face from melasma and past acne and this covers it up nicely, plus it has a powdery finish. I am oily so it doesn't control that all that well, but it could be worse. If I don't put additional finishing powder on, then I see oil breathrough about 6-7 hrs after and then I just blot off with blotting papers. The color selection isn't that great-I use Buff for having a little summer color, but bought Ivory for the winter.
I really loved this product--it made my skin look wonderful. It is smoothing and very natural looking. Unfortunately it broke me out horribly. I think it might be the ethyhexyl palmitate because other foundations with this ingredient made me break out as well.
