First impression review of Dermablend smooth liquid camo foundation in shade Mont Blanc

I picked up a sample of Dermablend smooth camo liquid foundation last week at Macy's and I put it to the test for work last Sunday. The woman at the Macy's counter told me that Dermablend had changed the formula of this product and that it was no longer as full coverage. The packaging specifically says that it is medium coverage. This retails for $35 at Macy's.

I built up the coverage to achieve my preferred look. I set it with Coty's airspun transluscent powder and used the L'oreal infalliable setting spray. I retouched it after 4 hours when I was on my lunch break because my forehead began to get shiny and it transfered easily. I set it with Mac's studio fix powder (shade NC 20) because it was the only thing I had in my purse. To my surprise at the end of my 8 hour shift, my face was still very shiny when I got home. Mac studio fix powder is full coverage and I couldn't believe it couldn't hold down the foundation. The curse of having an oily skin type. Usually foundations last longer on me when I'm in school or running errands, but when I am at work is when I am most physically active and most foundations don't hold up to well. As for now, I am still on the search for a higher end foundation for work. So far no high end foundations have replaced my beloved drugstore favorite foundations, Rimmel's Stay Matte and Revlon's Colorstay.
