Not for Me
I have combination/oily skin and large pores. I was hoping that this would help hide the pores and make my foundation last longer, I applied a thin layer of Absence on the oily T-zone with a foundation brush, over a light moisturizer, then followed with a BB cream and then a liquid matte foundation, and setting powder. It didn't seem to make any difference in the appearance of my pores, and my makeup did not last any longer. Tried it without BB cream. Tried it with mineral powder foundation. It didn't seem to matter. In the Texas heat and humidity, it was worse–my makeup faded away and my T-zone was shiny. Sorry to say, for me using Absence was worse than not using it.
