I found this to be a really good foundation. I have combo skin, with a oily T zone and this holds up pretty well. In a winter day (not that cold, since i live in a tropical country) I applied it at 9 am and when I arrived at home, at 8:30 pm, the foundation was pretty much intact, and my t zone wasn't oily at all. It did come of a little on my nose, but I think its a little bit my fault for touching my face (alergies). It is just enough coverage to give you a flawless complexion, and a little goes a long way. Its also buildable, but for me one coat is enough. The only thing i don't love is that it can be a little bit too mate (im in a dewy finish fase), so I like to mix this with Garnier BB Cream in Light. Its a great mix, demi-mate finish plus good staying power. I think its a great foundation for people with oily combination skin. I have friends with oily skin that really love this product. They love Revlon Color Stay too, but it can look a bit cake.

I'm surprised by all the bad reviews. I really like this product. I don't consider this a BB cream, since it doesn't delivery the treatment part, imo. For me its more of a light/medium coverage foundation, with the most beautiful dewy finish. Since I have combination skin, using this alone makes my cheeks glorious and my t zone too much oily, so I like to mix this with a matte finish foundation. It seems like a hassle, but its pretty quickly and the result is totally worth. In the amount a use (mixing the 2 products), it has enough coverage to even out my skin tone, but let my skin show trhrou.This somehow makes all my foundations a better color match, and makes my skin looks healthy and beautiful. If you´re looking for a more full coverage product, this isn't for you. When I run out (which will take a while) i will definitely buy again.

If you're looking for a sheen or glow highlight this is not for you. The base is a beautiful champagne color, that could be beautiful on the skin, if wasn't for the chunks of glitter. I'm not talking shimmery, finely milled glitter, it's really gritty glitter, just sitting on the skin. And, no, it's not about using a heavy hand, it's about the way the product was designed. Big waste of money imo. I'm using this as eyeshadow so it's not completely wasted.
