For reference: My skin type in the winter is combo (oily t-zone, dry cheeks), and in the summer it’s more all over oily. It is also acne prone.
I’ve been reading reviews, searching swatches, watching videos, and comparing other foundations. THIS is the one! I got swatched at my local Belk and took home a couple samples to test out for the week. I’ve been using Revlon’s Colorstay, and really didn’t like the chemical smell. I realized the Lancome one is it’s dupe after researching it and I’m so glad I did. It is almost identical to the Revlon, but has a much nicer almost a tint of rosy smell that doesn’t linger. It amazed me that I didn’t break out unlike  a lot of other foundations as well.
The lasting power also really amazed me since it lasted my full work day and THEN even after work hours it stayed put! A little goes a long way which is great for saving product, it can be heavy if you build it up. I recommend using a stippling brush to evenly spread it on the face with a natural appearance to smooth out fine lines and enlarged pores. This is not a cakey foundation at all, and looks very natural with a slight matte finish yet keeping your natural glow still.
 
The pump on the product is always a plus! This comes in a wide range of shades as well. I really can’t think of anything negative about this foundation. It’s well suited for normal, combo, oily skin types in my opinion.
Something I also noticed a bit later on is that in cool up to cold weather the foundation hardly transfers, because I’m always worried when people get too close or hug me, that I might transfer my foundation and stain their clothes. If you live in a warm region do not expect a miracle, your face will become shiny if you start to sweat.
I am most definitely getting another bottle, it is worth the money.
*For the record I’m NC20 (neutral undertones) in MAC and went with the 250 Bisque W shade*
