I have combo skin, I didnt apply it on my whole face, just a bit along the nose bridge and cheekbones. It doesnt make me look greasy, and it stays long.

It does contain Kaolin, a clay which absorbs oil. I don't believe you'll have problems.

I definitely wouldn't consider this a full coverage product--it's very light and sheer. I use it just to add a touch of highlight to my cheekbones. I have combination skin as well, with oily and dry areas, and I definitely wouldn't use this all over my face. Hope that helps!

Yes, I have super oily skin and live in humid weather. This works great and yet still has a soft shimmer

Question
What color should I use?
I am super super pale as in NARS siberia pale. For my birthday I received this in shade 5. I'm not interested in using this as a bronzer or anything I would like to use it for its intended purpose. Should I switch it for the lighter shade? Or will that even be light enough for me?

I am fairly light in Bare Minerals and vanilla in the new BM hydrating gel tint. I use 3 in this luminizer and it is perfect. Goes on sheer with no color, in my opinion. Just beautiful layer of sheen without glitter or shiny specks.

Definitely switch it for the lightest version. If you use it as a highlighter, the color will be off, which beats the purpose of the product.

Question
Will this clog my pores? Is it non-comedogenic?
I have oily, sensitive skin and I break out easily. I am usually okay with oil free products.

I found these ingredients on MUFE's site; Kaolin should keep skin oil-free:

Nylon Powder
Ceramides
Ester of isononanoic acid
Silicone Oil
Star Powder and Diamond Powder
Kaolin
Dermatologist tested

If you use it on top of your trusted foundation + translucent powder and apply it with a brush (not a sponge or compact puff), i don't see how you could break out.

As in any shimmery product, because they contain metallic powders, I advise to moisturize and have a good base before applying the products. It's a great one too!

I have sensitive skin and I haven't broken out from this at all. It's oil-free and fragrance-free.

Not that I know of. I would look into the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. It's the best of the best!

I saw its back in stock online but never saw it in store. Btw, now I prefer Too Faced Candle Light over it coz the texture isnt compact. Crack easily

I personally prefer this over albatross during the summer because it gives a more natural, healthy, summery glow that makes me look like I have extremely good skin:p

Question
Is it a strong highlight like the Becca highlighter or more of a sheen like the Hourglass?

The highlight is quite subtle - nothing like the Becca highlighters. It's closer to Hourglass. But where the effect of Hourglaas is to give a blurred perfection look, the MUFE just kind of gives you a glistening radiance. Hope that makes sense.
