I got the 250 (can't remember the name now) for Oily/Combination skin. After using this product for almost a month, I must say, it's terrible for my skin. I usually do break out when I have exams, and when I get my period, both of which happened during my experience with this foundation. The only other time I broke out this badly was when I decided it would be a good idea to use undiluted lemon juice as an astringent (NOPENOPENOPE!). I've got a light medium complexion with warmer undertones (think slightly pink but mainly yellow/golden). This made my skin turn on odd ashy and pinkish colour midday. I also have a rather oily t-zone, with the rest of my skin slightly oily as well, and it just wouldn't stay on my nose for more than two hours. I make sure I use a moisturizer, then a primer, and set my foundation with powder. AND put on ELF's makeup mist. Seriously, less than two hours! If you're going to buy this, make sure the place has a good return policy. Just in case.
I got the shade 220 last year when I was much tanner (mistake right there) and by the time it got to winter, it was too dark. My skin gets really oily around my nose and forehead, and this foundation cannot stay on! It doesn't hide any of my problem spots and turns slightly orangey after about a couple of hours of wear. So by the end of the day, I've got on foundation that looks like it's coming off in two shades too dark for me with an orange twist.

I bought this product today because my lip glosses/sticks/balms all have a habit of wearing off due to the fact that I am constantly drinking coffee, so I thought this product would be a great investment. I've used other lip stains before, so I had a decent idea of what to expect from this product.I put on a fair amount before going out to dinner and decided to check up on it when I finished. This is what I've found. 1. Most of the product stayed on during my dinner, which made me happy because I usually have to apply my lip stuff all over again which is a giant hassle. 2. While the product's packaging itself is alright, the felt tip marker can wear out rather quickly for my liking, it looked sort of dead after I used it a second time tonight. I really didn't like this when I was putting it on because it made me feel like a child colouring in her lips... 3. While the colour looked great on my skin area where I tested it, I needed to apply several layers of the product in order for my lips to look like I wanted them to (which I think can be applied to all lip stains really)
