Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

Neutrogena is one of the only brands that will not cause breakouts on my combo skin. This foundation matches my olive skin better than the Healthy Skin foundation. I use fresh beige and it is slightly more yellow (which is perfect). Compared to the healthy skin, it's also more light weight. It initially feels a little grainy, but once dry softens nicely to a satin type finish. The only negative is the small bottle opening, which makes it harder to get out. I store mine upside down so that it's ready when I need it. Overall, works great for combo skin.

Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

There's many things that are both good and bad. 1st. Its good it makes you look very finished unlike powder foundation, 2nd. It takes a while to dry or to feel dry, 3rd. Its never really dry it rubs off on shirts, sunglasses, my cell phone is the absolute WORST, 4th. It says it a ten hour shine control I get a little shinny on my cheeks and forehead after a few hours, Lastly I haven't broken out once and I've been using this for about a month.

    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

    I really like this new formula. The coverage is great and it does a pretty good job of keeping shine away. My only complaint (and understand that I'm very sensitive/picky about fragrance) is that I don't love the smell of it. Not terrible, but I wish it had no smell at all. Overall, great makeup!

    would never recommend

    By judy

    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

    I tried this product a couple of months ago and was really disappointed. My skin is not all oily AT ALL. Once i started using this product I had to constantly be dabbing at my face. Also, texture it had was somewhat grainy. I finally gave up and just stopped using it after feeling everyone was staring at how oily my face was. Would not recommend especially if you have oily skin.

      Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

      I'm normally a fan of Neutrogena products, but this foundation really disappointed me. It's incredibly hard to even get it out of the bottle, it's thick and tedious in its application, and also feels gritty. If you use this product, use a lot of primer.

        Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

        I decided to stray from my usual Neutrogena Skin Clearing foundation to try this, since my skin gets very oily very quickly. I was disappointed all around. It had a very odd, grainy texture that was difficult to blend into the skin. It didn't help shine any more than any other foundation, and I went through the bottle much sooner than other Neutrogena foundations.

          The sunscreen in this foundation doesn't irritate my eyes. Most foundations contain run-of-the-mill sunscreens that burn and irritate my eyes after 4 hours. What's the point in wearing foundation and sunscreen when you have to wash it off in he bathroom at work after 4 hours?

          I'm happy with the oil absorbing formula and the coverage also.

          difficult

          Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

          This foundation was a quick grab and I'm on the fence with it. It is super hard to get out of the container and you mostly get a huge blog that goes to waste but with my primer the overall look is ok.

            Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup SPF 20:

            I was pretty disapointed in this brand of shine control products. I have VERY oily skin. My day starts at 8:30 in the morning and I get off work at 4:30. I don't have time to do touch ups and fix the oilness of my skin druing the day so I was looking for something that would keep the oil at bay. I bought the primer, base, and powder, thinking that with all of them together they must work, but I was sadly wrong. It does help control the oil more so then the makeup I had been usueing, but not a huge difference. At the end of my work day I am still very shiny, but the powder is the best product from the line and seems to work the most when in comes to controlling the shine.
