Rimmel Stay Matte is a nice less expensive alternative and my go-to powder with this particular foundation. I also like the MUFE powder, but I actually like the Rimmel better, go figure!

I use a buffing brush because the products is very thick. I use the buffing brush by real techniques, but i'm sure you could find a comparable one like the Sephora one... http://www.sephora.com/pro-buffing-brush-62-P313019?skuId=1419472

Question
What type of finish is this?
Is it super matte, or demi matte/satin? Because I prefer more of a demi matte. I have oily skin in my tzone but I feel extremely matte foundations look sort of cakey and dry on me even with just a thin layer after a few hours.

I definitely agree with you about how super full/matte finishes look cakey. This has more of a demi matte finish but please read my review before purchasing for more details about the product :)

I would say its semi- matte. I also add a couple of luster drops by Josie Maran or Make Up For Ever for a slight dewy finish.

I have sensitive skin and have no problems with this foundation. It never causes breakout for me either. It will definitely cover acne. I don't need to use a separate concealer when I use this. Sometimes I use this as a concealer for certain areas when I am using my drugstore foundation (I like to save this foundation for special occasions since it is always sold out).

This product is oil free and would work great for sensitive/acne prone skin types. I would recommend getting color matched at your local Sephora store before you purchase though. This foundation is highly pigmented and the shades can vary quite drastically.

A flat top foundation brush. I apply this with the Cover FX one available on Sephora.com and the finish is very airbrushed. I have also used by beauty blender sponge which works well with this product too, I just hate how much product my beauty blender absorbs and worry about wasting this foundation that way.

I really like to use a stapling brush or the BeautyBlender Sponge. Remember that if you use the brush use it in small circular motions and if you prefer the sponge use it damp.

I have pretty deep smile lines and I always use a primer. I don't have any issues with this foundation accentuating anything. I use a makeup remover wipe to remove everything and it comes off like any other foundation I've used. I follow with my cleanser and my Clarisonic. Even though this foundation is long wearing, I find that it removes easily with decent cleansing products.

I have had no problem with settling in lines. I remove it with any good creamy cleanser. Soap and water with work, but cream remover works best.

I alway, alway, always use a primer, primer will help any makeup not settle into lines (as much) also I always use a setting powder to make my makeup stay in place all day. I never use a foundation just by itself. When I was using a sample of this foundation I had no problems with it moving or settling into any lines even around my eyes.

However, when I had this tested on my face for color matching, the consultant only put primer on one side of my face and didn't put primer on the other, just so I could see how this foundation lasted on both sides of my face. It was at the end of the day so I only wore it for four hours, but usually any foundation I have used before would move into my lines a little. Both sides looked exactly the same after four hours and didn't settle into my smile lines at all.

For removing, I do oil cleansing. Google search it if you don't know about the process. I have to oil cleanse twice with this. I would imagine with a normal foaming cleanser you would have to clean twice as well. I hope this information helps.

It lasts me about 2 months. I use it for full coverage and with a foundation brush. I use only a little concealer with it and very little powder. I wish it lasted me a year but I have scars from previous acne.

I would say at least a year. I use about a pea size amount which gives me a medium coverage and it will easily last a year, maybe more. I apply it once a day and sometimes twice.

A lot less than a pea size. Start with a dab and a concealer brush, seriously.

Well, Light 49 is a perfect match to me and it has a Beige/Peach tone to it. My undertone is light to medium and neutral leaning warm. Some of Kat's shades have a yellow or pink tone to them.Light 46 is very pink. Light 49 is not yellow or pink but a very noticeable peach.

M53 is my perfect match. I have yellow undertones. I was using 52 & 54 and mixing them. So glad 53 came out. I gave the 52 to my daughter, she's light with neutral undertones. I'm not sure about the other shades you listed. Hope this helps.

They range so dramatically so the best bet is to have a color consultation if you can. The store associate said I was a Light 42 but then when I started trying them on I ended up being a Medium 54!! The L's are more for light porcelain skin tones but again range from warm, neutral, yellow... definitely check out in person.

Question
Is this proven to be waterproof?
I have a tattoo that not many people know about and I will be in a swimsuit for the majority of a week with family. Would this foundation work in a pool setting? Not fully submerged all day, but definitely the possibility of getting wet. Thanks in advance for your advice.

YES!
I just got caught in a TERRIBLE, torrential rain storm for 20 minutes, if not longer. [No umbrella!] It was basically like having the most powerful shower of your life.
When i got home this foundation looked ABSOLUTELY just as pristine as when I had applied it.
Seriously, this foundation is incredible for it's long-wear ability.

Have you tried the Concealer? You may want to use both for extra coverage. I haven't tried this over my tattoo, but it does cover scars well and blemishes well. I would suggest a liner, a concealer, and possibly the foundation. I also do oil cleansing for makeup which is the best way I have found to remove makeup. I have to Oil cleanse deeply twice to remove this. I haven't "tested" the water proof, but I always get my face wet first when I cleanse. It doesn't move from a splash of water. It will move if I splash it with water and then rub it around on my face with my finger tips, but it doesn't really come off with out a cleansing process. It will wear down eventually like everything does. I have worn this for 12 hours misted my face several times throughout the day with a hydrating spray of two parts water one part glycerine several times and the foundation didn't move. I hope this helps.

my usual makeup remover didn't remove it, so I would say it's completely waterproof....I had to wash twice, the washcloth didn't finish the job. You need a good makeup remover for this.
