This is a very lightweight, sheer to medium coverage foundation, which is great for everyday wear. It would probably not be that suitable for dry skin, but for my oily skin it's perfect. The finish is neither too dewy nor matte, it is rather natural. I wear this during work-outs and it lasts just fine, better than many other high-end foundations I have tried. There are no claims to it being long-wearing, so I had no unrealistic expectations. On me it lasts around 8 hours before it starts to fade, but even when it does fade, it does so gracefully. Oils do come through pretty early on, but blotting fixes that without considerable transfer. When the skin is oily there will be oils, it is just a systemic matter that no product can resolve, thus it is not fair to expect cosmetic products that are applied externally to fix oily skin without causing clogged pores. to sum it up, this is a very good foundation for everyday wear. The only con is the chemical smell, but that dissipates in a matter of seconds and hasn't caused me an adverse reaction, which is awesome considering I've had problems with Estee Lauder's Double Wear and Double Wear Light in the past - both claim to be dermatologically tested and non acnegenic - and they both gave me contact dermatitis.
