I have combination skin and tend to be a little more on the oily side. I normally can't wear liquid foundation as it tends to make me look shiny/oily throughout the day even if I apply primer beforehand. I used the Neutrogena Shine Control Primer along with the Shine Control Foundation and so far, I am pleased. It covered all my imperfections, including my dark circles with NO concealer! It also looks very natural, which is also usually a problem with liquid foundation as it tends to look cakey. This may not be the same for everyone, but as for me, it worked very well! And at the low price point it's at, it's definitely worth a try!
