I haven't tried mixing it with my foundation, but when I do use it, I never get oily in those spots. The product itself has a very gel like consistency versus being watery or oily. It's my favorite highlighter. Maybe go into Sephora and ask for a sample before splurging but I definitely do recommend it

Emily T. asked, “Will this product make my skin super oily if added into foundation? I love the look of glowy skin, but not greasy! I've never purchased MJ product; should this be my first splurge?”
It's going to be hard because Marc Jacob's is definitely pretty up there. I don't think you'll be able to find something drugstore with the same formula, but I'm sure you'll be able to find a similar color. Maybe try Physician's Formula?

Alexandria T. asked, “Is there a drugstore or lower-end bronzer that compares in quality but is cheaper in price?”
I use the matte shades more than I do the shimmers. The brown range is definitely my most used but other than those, some are still untouched.
I do like the range of the palette though, if I ever needed the other colors, they're there. But I definitely don't use all of them often
Tori S. asked, “Has anyone had this palette for awhile? I'm wondering how much use you get out of each color? Obviously everyone has favorites so I'm wondering if anyone has hit bottom yet? ”
You can 100% find your own sponge and stick it in a tin. It's a good product, if you don't want to make it yourself. But if you're craft, you can save the money. Just go to the store and see what sponge it is and then replicate it.
Lindsay B. asked, “Is the sponge in this so different from anything else that it's worth the price? Or should I just buy a stipple sponge or basic foam and stick it in a tin?
I've been using the foam in my iPod classic box like the color switch it actually works quite well as a redneck dupe at least shadow transfer wise but I do need to get something I can actually clean and sanitize but as the nearest sephora is 50 miles away I can't even go look at it in person to see what the sponge looks like just what it appears to look like on my phone screen.”
