I'm going for a middle-of-the-road score for this one. It deserves a better score because it truly looks great on me. Nice coverage, nice finish, stays on, etc. But I am very, very allergic to...

The Merle Norman Luxiva is MN's recommended product for oily skin, but I must agree with another posting and say that it does not prevent my skin from looking like an oil slick! I blot after...

This is a great foundation for oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. It has an amazing texture when you put it on, almost silky and dries quickly to a powder finish. I don't even have to use powder...

Wanted to like this foundation especially after reading the positive reviews. It just looked so unnatural on my skin. Looked like I was wearing a mask. Just didn't work for my oily skin. I didn't...
