1/4 tsp for face as the standard amount:
PROS:
1. Clear chemical sunscreen, no white cast.
2. Dries to a non-sticky film within 20 minutes after first application.
3. Very cheap for 100ml. Doesn't hurt my wallet to use as a body sunscreen daily.
4. Good water-resistant property for daily use.
CONS:
1. Personally it gives me a massive amount of blackheads, leaving …

Skin: Normal, sometimes combo-oily. NC20 with saturated cool yellow almost olive undertone.
PROS:
1. Really decent medium to full coverage. One pump with this foundation is very little, but I find it more than enough to cover my entire face and get medium coverage. (I use fingers which doesn't soke up any product)
2. Easy to blend with fingers. Spreads very far.
3. Nice satin …

I have normal to combo-oily skin depending on the weather. NC20 in color. Always use 1/4 tsp for the face. I had high hope for this but it's disappointing.
PRO: Provides really good protection from UVA/UVB.
CONS:
1. Strong white cast when applied the standard amount. I'd say you can only get away with the cast if you're an NC10 or under.
2. Fragranced.
3. Very …

I have normal to slightly oily skin. NC20 in depth, with strong cool yellow undertone. Got the shade 145. The depth is spot on, but the undertone is slightly too yellow for me.
PROS:
1. Lasts quite well (It's not as hydrating as I've thought, which is a good thing for my skin type though)
2. Satin finish with brilliant coverage, a little goes a long way
3. Easy to apply …

This is the best foundation I've tried so far.
Skin Type: used to be oily, now normal.
Skintone: NC20 in MAC, with saturated yellow undertone. G30 is my best match in depth, but the undertone is a bit too peachy.
Application: I use fingers. Only using what's equivalent to less than one pump of other foundation.
Oily skin: it is pore-blurring, skin-like, smooth, fast …

I've gone through oily skin to normal skin. And I've finally decided that it is not a good foundation for its price.
For oily skin without any dehydration, it goes on beautifully. But then within 3 hours, it becomes super greasy and much darker. No creasing or breakup, just greasy. Also, it transfers everywhere. (I only apply less than a pump. To be fair, the coverage IS …
