I have oily skin and, all though this product is made for those with drier skins, I use it because of the great coverage I get. I'm at the pool alot so right now I'm wearing Golden Birch, but in the winter I usually wear the Alabaster. It is the cheapest fdnt that MN sells, I believe, paying around $18 for it. A little bit goes a long way, so this little pot will last a very long time. I use a sponge to apply...just tapping my sponge on the top of the product will do; no need to "rub" into it or you'll have way too much. I then set it with a dusting of the MN pwdr fdnt. This is always one that I go back to after the urge to try other products.

I really, really wanted to like this foundation. I usually buy drugstore, but that is getting so expensive, and there aren't any matches in a cream foundation for my pale skin with pink undertones, and I remember a relative of mine using this years ago, so I gave it a shot. It does cover well, but is pretty greasy. Still, it was a perfect color match, and I would have at least finished off this container, but -- THE SMELL IS REPULSIVE!
