I have tried this foundation with several different primers and foundation combos and I have to say I love it! I'm super picky when it comes to foundations, because I have oily skin and I want something that is full coverage, isn't cakey and lasts all day. I've found that this foundation does make me more oily when I don't set it with a powder. I like mixing it with the Covergirl clean matte bb cream. It looks flawless and like I just applied it hours later. It also doesn't feel too heavy. I like this foundation because I can tell it works for drier skin ladies as well because it is super luminous when I don't set it with a powder and when I don't mix it in with any other foundations. Even though it has a strong scent, it wears off fairly fast. My other top foundations are Loreal Pro Matte in 102 and Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1N1. I'm usually not the lightest shade in foundations, usually the second or third lightest, however in this foundation I am the lightest and it is still too dark for me. The color is slightly too warm/orange for me, which is why I tried mixing it in with the Covergirl clean matte bb cream in Light which lightens it to my perfect shade. Overall great foundation, I like it better than my holy grail foundation (Estee Lauder double wear) because it isn't as heavy feeling and makeupy looking.
