This is my favorite foundation of all time! I don't wear makeup all the time, but if I'm going to put on makeup I want my face to look nice and free of redness & blemishes. I have normal / combination skin (basically an oily tzone and nose). This is great in terms of redness control and on a day to day basis. I love don't need to add a green color corrector to deal with the rosacea on my cheeks as it keeps the amount of layers on my face to a minimum. I also use a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (an AMAZING beauty blender dupe) to blend it out, which removes excess product while still providing great coverage. I tend to do one pump of the foundation plus some of my moisturizer and then I mix them together on my palette. This keeps my face from looking cakey. This foundation isn't all that cakey to begin with, but it is my foolproof way of doing my foundation that I do with every liquid foundation I use. I'm not against wearing strong makeup at all, but for me I want it to look like my face, not as if I took a paint roller across my cheeks and forehead. I use a bit of my Rimmel Match Perfection concealer under my eyes, and finish off with a dusting of Rimmel's Stay Matte powder in translucent. It's such a simple and put together look that I do almost every time I wear makeup. I highly recommend you give this foundation a try if you're looking for a good reliable drugstore foundation, I really think it's lovely.
