Well, look, it depends on what the condition of your skin is, what your regular "look" is, and what your expectations are. If you have major skin issues, and you usually wear a lot of make-up, you may find this product alone does not meet your needs. This product accomplishes a lot, in my opinion. It meets my needs for a natural look with a bit of a glow while controlling the worst of my oily spots. It covers minor redness, smooths, and minimizes pores. And it provides a good SPF. But it can't accomplish miracles (really, no make-up can). Some people may try it and find they need more concealer. Some people may need more moisture. Try to get a sample and find out how it works for you.

I was considering buying this, but because of the reviews I read, it looks like it fairs better in more humid climates.

It isn't as heavy as foundation or as harsh, plus it has the added benefits of priming (you can use this as a primer for foundation) and SPF. It's also lightweight enough for sensitive skin. But I would still recommend using powder, colored for fuller coverage, translucent (Make up forever HD finishing powder I would recommend!) to get the finest lines in your face. I found that I only needed primer (green-tinted) for really red spots on my face. Hope this helps! :)
I think it's more about finding the right product for you. I am trying to simplify my routine and if this product requires all those extra steps- primer, concealer, powder, ad nauseum- it's simply not the product for me. Hopefully, we both will find the product we're looking for.
I have problem acne skin and use this. It is good for your skin, and although I still need a concealer, I don't need a foundation with this. I use a light moisturizer before this because I have dry skin and it also makes this go on smoothly. It is not heavy like foundation, Just evens out skin tone and covers better than other tinted products I've tried. I use medium, it looks dark until I blend well with a small dot amount. It's not dry looking, stays all day and has SPF. It looks natural even in bright daylight, unlike foundations. Try it, you can always return it.
I think this is good for when you don't really "need" make up. I'm going to use it for when my skin is being "good" and is clear and don't want to put a layer of foundation on when I don't really need it. It looks like you're wearing no makeup, and just smoothes out the skin. On day's where I'm having "bad" (more blemished or blotchy skin), I'll opt to use my regular sunscreen moisturizer and foundation.
