If you can get your hands on a weeks worth sample...don't change your skin care or other beauty routine and see how your skin feels after the weeks end.

I'm very acne prone as well with combination skin - this hasn't caused any breakouts for me.

I would so go ahead and buy this. I have always had a problem with acne as I have combination/acne-prone skin, even now at 36. I have slept in this foundation a few times and, miraculously, my skin has not been a complete disaster the next day. That has never happened before - every foundation seems to irritate my skin and cause breakouts. Not this amazing stuff!

I think (like most products) it depends on the kind of skin you have and what types of ingredients you may be sensitive to.

For me personally, this product was a no-go. I have combination/oily skin and while I don't break out with severe acne a lot, i have a problem with blackheads and my pores always being clogged.

This product only exacerbated the oil issue for me. It goes on matte, but my face was SUPER oily by the end of the day, only contributing to my problem with my pores.

Even if a product claims to be non-acnegenic and/or non-comedogenic, that doesn't mean YOUR skin will not break out from it.
The only way to find out is to first determine which ingredients are problematic for your skin (thru trial and error, sadly) or to just use it and see what happens.

I received the sample and really love the product but I've used it 3 times and I've started getting small pimples on my cheeks. I normally only break out in my T-zone.
I came back to the website to see about ingredients. I was hoping it had a retinol or something known to cause initial breakouts but clears up and leaves behind better skin. No luck. I don't see retinal in the ingredients.

Yes! You may still need a dot of concealer ( I do on some of my darker spots) but it does a GREAT job of evening out my skin and instead of concealing 6 or 7 red spots I only need to cover one or two.

I have slightly uneven skintone and this certainly helps to cover the redness. The coverage is not super heavy, though, so I wouldn't count on it covering up severe redness or scarring. I generally use this to even out my face and make it look fresh, then spot some concealer where I need it.

I didn't find I needed to set it with powder. I like the feel without powder, especially if your skiing tends to be dry. I would say powder may be helpful only if you have oily skin or want additional coverage.

I do set with Makeup For Ever HD loose powder, but only when I'll be at work or out all day. This tinted moisturizer really stays all day, and I find that a little of this setting powder perfects the look.

You don't have to I guess, but I did myself. I have really oily skin and this product only made my oil problems worse. When I didn't wear powder with it (I topped it with bareminerals mineral veil since I didn't want heavy coverage) my makeup was gone within hours.

additional SPF

Question
Compare to?
I have had and used so many TM; the only one so far that I like (now anyways) is Hourglass as I don't need to set it with Powder and it is fairly natural while covering my redness. Does this need setting powder? I find the LM great in the winter when my skin is dry but not great for summer as it tends to slide around unless I set with Powder and I am older with dry skin so no powder

Anyone try it without powder or can compare to Hourglass?

Hourglass seems like a heavier TM than this, almost like a foundation. I used a setting powder with hourglass but don't feel that I have to with this product, although it is just a normal part of my daily routine. I have compared the two and overall I prefer this TM, it's not heavy and still provides good coverage.

Question
Coverage?
How is the coverage of this? I need at least medium coverage. For reference, I've tried Dior Nudeskin BB cream, Dior Hydralife, Josie Maran tinted moisturizer, and Illumikate. They all provided enough coverage, but I've always wanted to try this product, but if it's super sheer, I wouldn't bother because I do have a little redness and some sun damage and do need some coverage. A big thank you for anyone who provides some advice :)

I, too, felt that I needed more coverage but compliments tell me otherwise. I have hyperpigmentation and age/acne spots with uneven tone. Although light in coverage, this does a really good job at evening things out. I dab a little concealer on the spots and I'm good to go. Had the same routine with other TMs so this is really performing well. And it's good for my skin and my skin is thanking me - no clogging of pores, better texture and even skin tone. It's a winner!

I would say it can be built up to medium coverage but you do have to use multiple "coats" as it were. Also, I find with my semi-oily skin, the product doesn't absorb into my skin as well the more coverage I build.

For me this is lighter and more moisturizing - but not in an oily way. It provides a luminous finish which has been noticed as my skin looking really well. When they comment on your skin, not your makeup, you know you've got it right!

It has less coverage than a BB IMO. It helps stimulate hyaluronic acid production to help retain moisture and the loss of moisture promotes aging, so in a way, yes it help with anti-aging.

It's comparable to a drugstore BB cream but lighter coverage than Smashbox, for instance.
