I LOVE my double wear foundation. it always looks good regardless of what primer I use. so it is definitely a more medium to full coverage foundation but it can be a bit more natural looking depending on amount used and how applied.
I find if I want really full coverage to use a brush to apply it, a sigma f80 or similar works well.
If I want less coverage I use a beauty blender (my go to), I also find that you can start out with less product and keep building if you want more full coverage.
this foundation is certainly on the matte side, I do not mind this though as I have combo skin, I like to add my shine on after.
I do not find it oxidises on me, it covers the redness on my checks and makes my pores dissappear, and no matter the occassion, it never lets me down.
I do not wear makeup to work everyday so I am unsure If I would use something this heavy as my everyday. but because I do not use it all the time I don't find it too expensive.
It does irritate me that it doesn't come with a foundation pump, but you can buy the MAC foundation pumps and they fit the bottles so while annoying is not a deal breaker.
