The foundation gives a semi-matte finish, not completely matte but definitely not shiny-looking, either. It also feels really light on the skin, as claimed, which is great as it doesn't feel uncomfortable or mask-like throughout the day. I find it lasts a good 4-5 hours before I start to get a bit of shine on my forehead, which is pretty good going for my oily skin. I don't think I'd quite agree with the 12 hour claim, but certainly 8-10 seems to be absolutely fine as long as I touch up with powder halfway through the day.
