This may sound counterintuitive, but I have found that luminizing makeup is most flattering on my oily skin. When I apply matte makeup, my skin still wants to be dewy so I end up looking like an oil slick. When I use this product, my skin looks intentionally dewy. Like just stepped out of the shower dewy, not need a shower dewy. The shimmery quality of this is subdued enough for a daytime look. It starts out sheer when I first apply it, and then I build it up to hide my old acne spots. I still have to use under eye concealer.
