Prior to using the Matchmaster I've consistently used Revlon Colorstay, MUFE HD foundation, and Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I have really oily t-zone and I sweat very very easily at work and all of my foundations leave t-zone look like a greasy mess within the first 3 hours of wearing regardless of what powder or primer I set it in. Matchmaster, however, was the only and STILL the only foundation I've used thus far that leaves my skin semi-matte through the whole day at work. Yes I still sweat, but for some reason my t-zone does not turn to a grease pan with the Matchmaster. I notice Matchmaster does move around towards the end of the day unlike Colorstay, but I generally don't have too much of a problem with it. This is definitely my HG foundation for work or during hot summer days until I find something else that's better for my insanely oily skin. I wear a 4.0 during the winter time and I'm typically a NC35/37 around this time.
