Question
Is this product oil-free?
I'm considering purchasing this powder/foundation, but I would like to know if it's oil-free? My skin is quite oily already and tends to break-out.

YES, this is Oil Free I have been using this for 10 years now, and I love it, I wet the sponge and apply it for the full coverage look and then apply the the powder puff over my face after and you can carry that in your purse for touch ups through out the day. Also I have just purchased Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer just to try but I will stick with Lancome Dual Finish, I am just to oily for any kind of foundation. Also this so easy and fast (like less than a minute no joke)

Question
If I wear this with nothing else, will it provide adequate coverage?
I currently use loose powder that I apply with a brush. If I were to use this pressed powder as a foundation, would it apply adequate coverage (without using moisturizer spritzing water on)??

I use it with the enclosed sponge as my foundation on my t-zone which has some redness. It covers completely dry. I wouldn't use it over foundation as it is itself a full coverage foundation when used dry with the sponge. I'm not sure why it's called a finishing powder. I consider it a foundation since it covers my broken capillaries completely. By using it with a brush, you would have very light coverage. This product can also build. I use it over my serum and moisturizer. I've never tried it wet and wouldn't spray water on it. I don't use the enclosed puff, only the sponge applicator. It matches my skin tone so perfectly that I can use it only on selected areas of my face and it is impossible to tell I'm wearing makeup.

That's how I wear it, just over my moisturizer, without liquid foundation. I apply it with a big face brush for a sheer finish, and use the sponge (dry) for more coverage. For me, personally, I don't like the way it looks when I wear it with foundation.

This works great as an alternative to foundation. The coverage is excellent dry-I haven't tried it with a damp sponge but would probably be even better. I do use a primer that I think helps act to hold the powder better. Long wear, feels flawless. Used to use Shiseido but could not get it here or online easily so switched. This product color matches beautifully. You will not be disappointed. Do not use spritzer water.

I actually prefer this pressed powder without a moisturizer underneath. I feel it provides me with adequate coverage for a natural, non-heavy look.

I would suggest Porcelaine d'Ivoire. It's not too pale, so you won't look chalky, but it's not too dark, either.

No. The second ingredient is mineral oil. I have oily skin and it's fine for me though. It's not particularly mattefying after a couple hours but it doesn't make me break out.

Is this oil free? I have combination skin and break out easily.
Want to make sure this won't cause my skin to break out since I am use to buying product that are oil free. I currently use Lancome's mineral powdered makeup, but want a bit more coverage without having to go to a liquid or heavy foundation.

I would reccommend a yellow tone to balance the redness. Maybe Matte Sand or Matte Amande? You should really pop into the store for a color match the first time.

I'm not sure about the color, but you can definitely wear it as a foundation. I have some really bad breakouts (monthly) and on those days I just apply a little extra and it's not cakey and does not even feel heavy to me.

I don't think it's really a setting powder. For me it's more of a cake foundation. For setting, I'd use a loose powder or the TARTE
Smooth Operator™ Micronized Clay Finishing Powder with PM20™. It looks white, but used in moderation with a big, fluffy brush, it sets either my liquid foundation (Dior) or my Lancome dual finishing powder.

This is a foundation and you do not need both. You will get a cakey look with both. Try this as it has excellent coverage and a natural finish.
