i have oily skin and acne and it’s the best foundation , it sits well on skin and doesn’t clog pores and it stays matte all day and doesnt make acne flare up

My holy grail foundation, and the best I've found for acne prone skin. It's oil free and formulated with salicylic acid, a known antibacterial ingredient in the treatment of acne, so this beauty wont block your pores! It also gives amazing medium to full coverage, with little need for concealer. Best budget foundation!

I really like this product it has great coverage for my acne prone skin! You can use a little or a lot and it's last ages! However it does sometimes make my slime feel oily :(

This foundation gave me just the coverage that I wanted for my acne and redness without using very much and it still felt really light and natural on my skin. It must be one of the most radiant and illuminating foundations ever, when applied it makes your skin look so alive and glowy! I found that through the day, although it did stay on, I became very oily looking as I do have very oily skin

Really nice foundation for everyday wear, can be built up. Light coverage, dewy look and feel. Better for dry skin and it's very liquidy. Not very good for acne prone/ blemished skin. Evens skin colour eg dark circles and red patches. Not very good at covering spots.

my absolute favourite!! I was recently on roaccutane for my acne this really dried my skin out & made it extremely difficult to achieve a flawless finish! That is until I found this AMAZING product. It's completely buildable so you can have as little or as much on as you want. I set mine afterwards and this keeps it looking fresh all day long. Great for covering acne scars too

I used to love this foundation but now i hate it! not a foundation for people with acne or oily skin like myself. So thick and hard to blend. Also hate the packaging. Just not a fan of this foundation at all and would recommend anyone with similar skin to myself to stay as far away from this foundation as possible. Hit or miss..

Although this foundation is very full coverage, it can be sheered out using moisturiser. It blends beautifully and is very long wearing and as with all mac foundations there is an extensive range of shades. I have very dry, acne prone skin and I find that the coverage is perfect to cover my breakouts, however sometimes it needs to be heavily powdered over breakouts/oily areas as it breaks down.
