I have tried both the matte and dewy variations. Both are just as good. This is a great, light foundation that you need to build up in thin layers. If you apply too much it dries and looks cakey. I like that it applies thinly. For every day use I tend to use 1 layer and then for events or nights out I might use 3 layers. Very buildable depending on how you want the end result to look and also a convenient size for travel.
