This is one of my favourite for oily skin and textured skin as well. As it has small silicone like particles which help to smooth out any texture and pores. This one has thick mouse like texture but it further application is very good and doesn’t feel very heavy on skin. This foundation has few color shade so it is a big turn off as you might difficult to find your perfect color.

I use it for everyday use and you can reduce the pigment by adding a little bit of moisturizer in it.

As it showed the same amount of coverage and last for 4-5 hours on my skin in summers. It has 2 type of formulas for dry and combination(or oily) skin.
