Now, I know some of the reviewers said that this is not good on oily skin. I have this foundation and I have combination/oily skin, but it does not make me any oilier than I am. The best way to apply it is in patting motions and this can be done either with a stippling brush or a sponge. Just take a dab and pat it on. Then take a setting powder and with a sponge, pat then roll over the foundation. You will get the desired coverage that you want that way. It is a great overall foundation!
