I don't like creme foundations because I have oily, acne-prone skin. This covers really well, though I had to layer more over spots and hasn't broken me out yet. The cream ivory is a close match,...

This is not something i would reccomend as a foundation. It's very rich, thick and creamy. It goes on really smooth. It would best be used as a concealer if it matches your skin tone. I don't get...
