#5 Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free + Balance
Like many of the foundations for oily skin, they can be too drying or look caked if you have dryer skin. Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free + Balance Stick Foundation works well as a concealer or a base so if your skin is oily then this one's for you.
It only comes in 6 shades so you might have to work on blending it in to give the best coverage but your oily skin will be taken care of.
One reviewer says,"I Have Purchased The Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Stick Foundation And When I Say This Is GREAT For Any Woman With Combination/Oily Skin Who Wants Their Makeup Look Soft With A Velvet-Matte Finish, This Is IT!!"
"This Foundation Leaves My Face Feeling Like Their Is Nothing On My Face. I Feel Like Finally, I Don't Have To Buy So Many Types Of Brands Of Foundation To Find My Shade."
RRP $16.95 available from ry.com.au
#4 Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
With 8 shades to choose from Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse will cover blemishes, help close your pores and keep the shine at bay.
Apply small dots to a cleansed and toned face and blend with a foundation sponge.
RLC says, "This foundation works really well on my oily, blemish-prone skin. The coverage is great, my skin looks smooth, it doesn't get cakey and it can last the full work day, but I'd recommend a quick touch up around 5-6 hours in if you get really oily."
"The super thick formula takes a little bit of getting use to, but ultimately a great, affordable foundation. I use it on top of the NYX pore filler."
RRP $14.95 available from Priceline
#3 Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation
Seriously suited to oilier skins, Too Faced Peach Perfection provides buildable cover with a matt finish. If your used to sheer foundation this might seem a bit heavy at first, but as the dear wears on your face will stay covered and seem less 'made up'.
One reviewer says, "Once applied, the foundation literally lasts all day. At first, I thought it was way too matte for my skin but it's one of those foundations that look better as the day goes on so it looked pretty natural by the end of the day."
"While it does live up to its claims being transferproof and long wearing, it's not really dry skin friendly."
RRP $55 available from Mecca
#2 Revlon ColorStay
Another long wearing foundation that comes in 11 shades, Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily skin literally works to reduce oil and shine throughout the day.
The result? Decent overage that looks natural.
Tanisha from VIC says, "After many trial and errors with foundations for my severely oily skin, I’ve finally found an amazing one for me. This is the only one I’ve found that actually stays on my skin all day (and even later on after I exercise) which is hard to find with oily skin."
"I still get shiny throughout the day but not as bad as I usually do and the makeup doesn’t break up!"
RRP $34.95 available from Priceline
#1 BareMinerals Matte SPF15 Foundation
The great thing about mineral makeup is it balances your skin and prices impeccable coverage. the only thing about loose powder is getting used to using it without it going everywhere. So you'll need to channel your inner makeup artist as you perfect the art of applying this powdery velvet.
Karlz1985 says, "I bought this a month ago and absolutely love it. I don’t wear foundation but I wanted something to make me still look like me but hide blemishes and even skin tone."
"I have oily skin and this stay on all day (with moisturiser on underneath) and makes my skin look great. Can’t rate it highly enough. I’m sure you could build the coverage up but I like it minimal. Also bought the applicator brush that’s recommended for it."
