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!

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

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.

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?

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.

I am super pale too. Shade 3 looks perfect on me. Get the lighter shade, its worth it

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

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
