Obviously, I'm oily too. I've been using this for 4 days now. I use Becca Ever Matte primer and then conceler, only under my eyes, and then the foundation, then Too Faced Primed & Poreless, then UD de-slick setting spray. When I fist started, it looked awful, I looked like I had sooo much makeup on. But with this, the smallest bit goes such a long way. Really, the less you put on, the more natural you will look. I have a little acne and some scarring, which is kind of dark and I don't even need concealer to cover it. I only need it under my eyes, just cause I like to be on the safe side... But find a mattifying primer, don't use too much of the foundation, get a good setting powder and spray, and you'll love it. I actually slept with all my makeup on last night, and my skin still looked pretty concealed after I woke up. It rubbed off some, but for the most part, I still would've been able to like, go to work if I really needed to. I know this was long, but I hope it helped <3
I personally have oily skin and this has an amazing matte finish that is long lasting.

i use the cover fx matte primer and that help the foundation not get so oily. i have very oily skin and this foundation works great. i get oily after about 5 hrs of using it but i just blot with papers and it dosent transfer of it. it dosent separate neither so that is good.

I have a super slick t-zone and this is the only foundation I have found so far that tames it. I use UD De-Slick gel or a spritz of the De-Slick spray, a primer, and then the foundation. I wait a bit before working on the face and then I blot with a tissue. Then I proceed with a matte setting powder (surprisingly, the cheap Rimmel one is great). I think this is the best I'm gonna get because I've tried it all.

I have t-zone oily skin and it's great! I do use a primer before application but I've worn it without primer and it was fine. I have oily acne prone skin and this make-up doesn't aggravate that and covers up blemishes well.

I have SUPER oily skin and I use Peter Thomas Roth Clini Matte as a primer then this foundation. I have never used setting powder with this and it lasts about 12 hours on me.

I have combo/oily, acne-prone skin and this works excellent. The product says that it works on all skin types and it didn't make me oilier than usual. I would suggest using a primer and a finishing powder to absorb some of that excess oil throughout the day. Hope this helps! : )

Its awesome. I'm super oily and it holds up nicely, nothing will STOP the oil but this will make it look like a "glow", not a grease ball. Hope this helps

My store just got this in and I bought it last night. I got a sample a week ago and used it every day for a week and I still have some left of the sample. I have oily, combo, acne prone sensitive skin. Thankfully I can handle silicone derivatives. I use a primer and a setting powder no matter what foundation I use. That being said, This lasted 12 hours (indoors) without blotting or re-powdering on my skin and I am oily. It didn't stay completely matte, it started to look Demi matte (between matte and semi matte) when the oils started to push through. I didn't blotting because it didn't change the staying power of the foundation, and it simply looked more natural that a flat matte. This lasted on my oily skin 12 hours with NO problems. I hope that helps.
Well in the description it says that "Natural polymers absorb oil for a matte, soft finish" so it sounds like it would work for oily skin. I guess we won't know for sure till we get to try it when it finally hits stores!
