I have oily skin & love it. I personally don’t even set it with powder most of the time. It has a decent amount of staying power & it provides good coverage – more than a tinted moisturizer, but feels just as light. I will say that I sit in an air conditioned office all day and have really never tested it out in the summer heat. I do imagine it’d still have fairly decent staying power though. I don’t have acne prone skin really, but I didn’t find this aggravating in any way & don’t think you’ll have a problem.

I have combination skin and very acne prone and this foundation is amazing! It doesn’t brake me out and gives a really nice natural finish πŸ™‚

Definetely… I got mine a couple days ago, and I’ve alredy used it a couple times. I have an olily (temporarely) acne prone skin and it works perfectly. It’s one of those rare products that work for every skin type.

I have oily and acneprone skin and I’m using this foundation for a couple of weeks. It gives a really nice, natural finish, has way less coverage than my most used foundations (mat lumiere, MUFE HD and MAC pro longwear), and so I use it as kind of a tinted moisturizer. Only problem I have it that it is not longwearing, it’s allright for about 5 hours on my skin, but it doesnt claim to be longwearing so I can’t complain about that…

Lancome Teint Idole! Best foundation if you’re looking for natural-looking, long-lasting full coverage. Much longer-lasting than MUFE HD on me and with a more universally flattering finish (not so dewy, not too matte). Took me 3 tries to finally be matched to the right shade since there are so many, but it was worth it! Tip: If you lean toward yellow toned, go for the BUFF shades.

Unfortunately I’m still looking! My skin is super oily and shiny, and I need something matte that’s medium coverage however, most of those products end up looking too cakey or make-up-y on me…

i have super oily skin and my skin is also acne prone but i think the foundation i use will work for you. I am obsessed with laura merciers silk creme foundation. I still get a tad oily but when i do i use peter thomas roth mineral spf 45 powder and just dust it on my face. Hope this helps!

You might try an oil control primer and using a damp sponge to smooth out the foundation once applied. Most people like the “beauty blender” but just a wedge sponge works great and you can toss them in the wash with the whites.

Oddly enough its L’oreal True Match foundation.. the color i have fits my skin so perfectly its like it just enhances the good and removes the bad. Many other foundations i just struggle with but that one i do love.

I love the way it looks and feels on my skin, but it doesn’t last for more than three hours on my skin-which I find ridiculous since my skin isn’t super oily or anything… I really wish it did last longer though because it looks natural and doesn’t break out my very acne prone skin.

Nars Sheer Glow (although I wish it did last a bit longer on me). Every time I wear it I wonder why I bother wearing anything else. Even though I like Diorskin Nude and Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua πŸ™‚

I’ve really been loving Chanel VitaLumiere Aqua, but I find myself reaching for my MUFE HD a lot lately. I think the HD would be my “holy grail” foundation, especially in the summertime when my skin is oilier.

I have two. πŸ™‚ Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and Cargo Liquid Foundation (thats the name i believe-the one that comes in the weird little pouch) the chanel one is almost like a tinted moisturizer with full coverage, and the cargo one has amazing coverage and a really silky feel. It also does a great job of controlling my oil

I have yet to find a holy grail liquid foundation but my holy grail powder foundation is by Milani! I love it for setting my liquid foundation and no matter what liquid foundation I use, the end product is always the same when I put that powder on!

ATM, Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Creme in Porcelain. I mostly like it cuz it’s the first foundation I’ve found that matches my fair but neutral Asian skin tone, but I also like that it’s a cream and I find it a bit easier to work with than liquid. But out of all the foundations I’ve tried, texture wise I absolutely love Chanel’s new Vitalumiere Aqua, but too bad the lightest shade is too dark and oxidizes into a weird muddy orange color on my skin.

I second the graftobian HD creme makes u look flawless in pics, and also im liking MUFE HD for photos, but the graftobian product has more coverage and a better price point.

I have a few πŸ˜‰ Clinique Superbalanced, Bobbi Brown Skin, and Estee Lauder DW Light. All even out my skin without looking too made-up. Love them.

Currently, I’m loving Clarin’s Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation. I love how natural it looks on my skin and doesn’t oxidise.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. It’s light but provides enough coverage. Feels like nothing is on your face.
