Ive been wearing it for about two weeks and I really, really like it (its a great alternative to Mac Studio Fix).

I love how much easier it is, not having to apply foundation makes me happy. I still need a concealer for some scars/red marks that I have.

It holds up pretty good (I love its mattifying effect) especially for my extremely oily skin.

Im also using a mattifying Gel (OC Eight) which helps. I personally think it works best on normal to oily skin types. For those with dry skin...I'm not sure.

Here's a link that acne_battle sent me (aka Molly). I found it to be helpful.

I think the only concern with Makeup Forever Mat Duo Powder Foundation is that it has fragrance in it. So if your skin is super sensitive...fragrance is something you probably should avoid. Lorac has an oil free fragrant free powder foundation. The Lorac brand caters to people with sensitive acne pron skin. It was my second choice.

I just bought Makeup Forever Mat Bronzer #2. I'm very happy right now, I love it. Its oil-free, fragrant free and it says it helps oil control, plus it doesn’t have that annoying sparkly stuff. I used it this morning (just lightly dusted it on my forehead, nose, chin and cheek bones) its perfect!

Ingredients:

Talc, Nylon-12, Octyldodecanol, Pentylene Glycol, Zinc Stearate, Myristyl Lactate, Isotridecyl Isononanoate, Isononyl Isononanoate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Lauroyl Lysine, Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mica, CI 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 75470 (Carmine), CI 15850 (Red 6), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77492 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 42090 (Blue 1 Lake)].

Anyone else try it?

is that simalar to the ingredients in mineral makeups that that make acne prone users break out? i've heard some horror stories about bare minerals but i've never had a problem. i also believe i've used mica and talc in some of my powders with no problem, it's the other ingredient you mentioned that worries me! is that commonly found in liquid foundations as well?

Dimethicone is basically silicon
