This is such a nice foundation, it's the finest textured mineral foundation I've ever used and it gives a very natural healthy/glowy look. I have to say I'm impressed with this shade (light cool) because I'm very very fair and struggle to find foundations that are light enough for me. It's not a heavy coverage foundation so you will be able to see your 'imperfections' such as spots through it so you may need concealer. Don't be scared of the mica/shimmer- give it a go and you might find that you like it. I wouldn't suggest this for oiler skins though because it might make you even oiler (see the shea butter and sunflower oil in the ingredients) and the mica might make you look oiler as well but for dry/normal/mature skins this would be lovely.
