I like this very much so far. I have trouble finding foundation to match my skin, especially at the drugstore -- I have very light, yellow-toned skin and many light foundations are too pink for me. The color selection here is great. The foundation is very smooth and blendable, and suprisingly it controls oil much better than other foundations which claim to control oil but turn slick on my face by noon. I'm not sure if this has SPF -- at the end of the ingredients list, it says "may contain" sunscreen ingredients. There is no SPF rating listed on the front of the bottle. (I prefer no sunscreen in foundation anyway -- it tends to break me out or turn ashy -- so I consider that a plus.) The bottle is rather ugly and I would have preferred a squeeze bottle, but that's minor. My only concern is that this will break me out, because most foundations do. So far it hasn't, but I have only been using it for a few days. All in all, I think this is one of the best foundations L'Oreal has put out in a long time. UPDATE: Two weeks and so far, it has not broken me out (and EVERYTHING breaks me out.) I also found that I no longer need concealer under my eyes if I used this... and I normally use Dermablend, so that should give you an idea about how dark my circles are.

Edited 5/19/04: This foundation is not holding up so well now that the weather is warmer. I notice it wears off of my oily nose. I still like it and think it's worth the price, though. continued >>
