Now I usually never buy any basic foundation. I seem to have the hardest time finding my color and I always felt like they irritated my skin or didn’t have enough coverage or something. So for the past 2 years I have went strictly with L’oreal True Match Foundation, it is my current favorite foundation. It is absolutely beautiful on the skin. The finish is very good and clean. I take a damp beauty blender (sponge) dab it into the foundation and apply it directly to my face.
So if you have even somewhat of oily skin, you know the troubles. Finding the right foundation is not quite the easy task to do. For us oily people, foundation can sure be picky. Even if the foundation claims to be “matte”. Most of the time that “claim” lasts for about two and an half hours, for me at least. You wanna know the weird part? Most of the dewy foundations I have work a lot better for me than the matte ones. Especially these foundations can be judged by your forehead and 5 ‘o’ clock areas, as these areas of your face are more oily as compared to others so when a person with oily skin tries to apply foundations, it never get absorbed and gives a greasy texture to your skin.
In the makeup world, cushion and matte foundations are the new best thing. I feel many brands are coming out with them. Basically, a cushion foundation is going to be more on the dewy natural side and the foundation is going to dispense through a sponge and matte foundations provide us with a clean and oil free texture, in other words they are just like mousse which is oil-free and covers your face easily.
When it comes to Luminous primers, I tend to just ignore them completely and try and find anything that’s gives a matte/pore-less finish. For someone who has oily-skin, I’ve gotten the idea that adding anything else other than highlighter is too much and will make me look like a disco ball.
I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews about the first version of Maybelline Fit Me! that it was very dewy and it does not last long and so now that Maybelline launched a matte version of it, so I thought, “why not try it?” It is my current favorite foundation. It is absolutely beautiful on the skin. The finish is very similar to the L’Oreal True Match foundation but better. It matches my skin tone perfect. Although I feel like I may need a darker color once we are full-swing into the summer months. I apply with a brush as it helps blend it all in. It dries pretty quickly and carries more coverage. Very Happy with the flawless results.
This ultra-lightweight foundation contains micro-powders that absorb oil for a matte and pore-less looking finish. Unique formula goes beyond matching just skintone and also matches the texture of normal to oily skin for the ultimate natural fit. Dermatologist and allergy tested, this mattifying foundation does not clog pores and is oil-free.
When I read about it having diamond complex I was a bit hesitate because I thought it be a bit much but it gave me a nice sun-kissed glow. When I applied it on, first thing I noticed was how matte feeling it felt on my skin. Most Luminartors feel very moisturizing or just sit on the skin but this felt like my skin absorbed it nicely without making my skin feel dry. I also noticed it helped out my dark circles a bit before applying any concealer or highlighting creams. For my pores I don’t really have an issue.
