Over the years of combatting my oily complexion and experimenting with numerous different foundations in the hope that one day I would find the solution. These 4 foundations I have found to work best to keep me shine free throughout the day. In addition, I do like to use a primer under my foundation to help it last longer. I did a post here which summarises all my primers that in my collection.
YSL fusion Ink foundation
This is very similar to my L’oreal tent magique in a sense that it is both a thin liquid texture that melts into the skin transforming into powder. This gives an airbrushed finish and there is no need for extra setting powder. It has a little spatula wand that places the product on your face before blending it in. I find that using the warmth of your fingers to blend in the foundation to be the best method as you have to be quite quickly. I do warn girls out there with combination oily skin and prone the the random dry patch - This foundation does cling onto it emphasising it. This foundation is gives a lightweight comfortable feel and perfect for days where skin appears to be having a good day and doesn’t need as much coverage. Lasts around 4 hours before my shine starts to break through. I reviewed the L'oreal Teint magique foundation here.
Lancome teint miracle 24h
This is the most heavy foundation that I own in my collection in my opinion but It really does keep your face shine free for the longest period. This is a medium to heavy coverage so there is isn’t a need for me to apply extra concealer. The consistency of this foundation is very thick but it blends relatively easy to give a nice flawless finish. There is SPF in this foundation and I have noticed that there are minor flashback when with flash photography so I would be wary if you are going to an occasion where there are lots of photo taking. Recommend this foundation for more oilier skin or if you want a heavy coverage base. Full review here
Rimmel lasting finish
This is my most recent purchased foundation. I have combination oily skin and I find that this foundation stays put on my face and keeps me looking matte for a long period. I work long hour shifts and after my shift, I do look a little shiny but a nice kind with a bit of a glow rather than oil slick. This is a thick formulation but I find it a bit easier to blend compared with the Lancome Teint Miracle. Medium to full coverage, this foundation masks all my imperfections whilst giving me a subtle dewiness to the skin that doesn’t look too matte. For a drugstore foundation, I am very impressed with this and I have been using it on a daily basis for the past month along with my other January favourites
Chanel Perfection Lumiere
I used to use the Matte Lumiere but that was unfortunatley discontinued and replaced by this foundation. I seem to reach for this foundation the least compared to the other ones and I actually don't know why. This is a medium to full coverage and it blends very nicely too. Like the name suggests, it does give a subtle glow to the skin allowing for a more natural look to the skin. This foundation is very comfortable to wear and it has a slight delicate scent of roses. Not much to say about this foundation apart from it does its job well and even my mum complimented on how nice my skin looked with it randomly. I did a full review a couple of years ago when I first purchased it here.
