Would this be a good product for someone with oily skin?
I have skin that is generally oily, but much more so if I don't use the right products. I've tried many BB creams, but gave up on them b/c all made my skin super-oily. I am now hesitant to spend a lot more money on trying different CC creams if I am going to have the same results.

I probably wouldn't. I have combination skin and this made my T-zone worse. I wrote a review on this if you want to read it under the product reviews.

I too have a very oily T-Zone. I am trying a lot of new serums at the moment but it certainly seems "less" oily than foundation or BB cream. I love this product but I have to point out it is not perfect. I didn't have to powder my nose again today after the morning but it is a little bit shiney in my T-zone. Not enough for me to worry about but you might. They have samples at the moment.
I haven't had any problems with it. So far, so good - even given the humid weather!
Yes, I have oily, acne prone skin and I use it without worry. It isn't heavy, and won't clog your pores.
I definitely wouldn't recommend for oily skin. I have oil skin and had to return my bottle of this because it was too oilly/ heavy for me and made my face shiny even with mineral powder on top. Try Peter Thomas Roth CC instead - I am working my way through a large sample of that one and it is much more suited to oily skin (plus it has mineral sunscreen instead of chemical sunscreen - so it's much less likely to irritate your skin). Also try Dr. Jart Detox BB - it is great for oily skin - I am on my second bottle of that.

I **do not** recommend this CC cream at all if you have oily skin, it will be more disastrous than the other BB creams!
As someone with pretty oily skin though I suggest trying the other ones with some oil-control moisturizer underneath. I find this works better for me than putting it on directly and my skin doesn't get as oily since it has some moisture on it to begin with, and it can breathe and wears a lot better through the day than if I apply full-on foundation. Just my $0.02.
Yes it would be great! I would apply the Urban Decay all Nighter spray on top to ensure a long wear
