It is difficult for people with oily skin to keep their make-up in place. Often, it only takes 2 until 3 hours for our skin to get oily again after we put out make-up. Therefore, it is crucial to find the right foundation – not only because it is the based of make-up, but also because the right foundation for oily skin will help to set our make-up in place for up to 12 hours / all day long.

 

1. Marc Jacobs – Re(Marc)able Foundation

This foundation is the best foundation I have ever used for oily skin. I would say that this is the “must have item” for people with oily skin. It has full coverage and could stay in place for up to 15 hours. With this foundation, often I don’t need to use concealer as this foundation has covered everything. The price is a little bit expensive, but it is worth the price. It cost around 38 pound-sterling. My advice is – go get this foundation as it is a really good investment for your skin.

Positive side (+)

  • Full coverage (98%)
  • Last up to 15 hours
  • Oil free
  • Matte finish

Negative side (-)

  • Expensive
  • The packaging is not convenient

 

2. MAC – Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

MAC foundation is the first foundation I have ever used. It is very good for oily skin, but the result is a little bit strong. With this, the make-up could stay for up to 8 hours. If you like the result to be strong and cakey, this is a good one for you. However, if you prefer the result to be more natural, I would not recommend this brand. Nevertheless, overall this foundation is very good at dealing with oil in our skin.

Positive side (+)

  • Full coverage (90%)
  • Last up to 8 hours
  • Oil free
  • Matte finish

Negative side (-)

  • Strong result and very cakey

 

3. Clinique – Stay Matte Oil Free Foundation

Another oil free foundation that is not very expensive and worth having is Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free foundation. This foundation gives a matte result but not very strong neither or cakey. On the whole, it reduces the appearance of the oil well and could last up to 6 hours.

Positive side (+)

  • Last up to 6 hours
  • Oil free
  • Matte finish
  • Not very expensive
  • The packaging is convenient

Negative side (-)

  • If you prefer full coverage and strong finish look, this foundation does not fit your needs.

 

4. Loreal – Infallible Face Long-lasting Foundation

This foundation is good for people that have oily skin and looking for a budget foundation that will help to maintain your oil. Loreal Infallible Face Long-lasting Foundation is the best drug store foundation for oily skin. It cost only 8 pound-sterling and could last up to 5 hours.

Positive side (+)

  • Full coverage (80%)
  • Last up to 4-5 hours
  • Oil Free
  • Very affordable
  • The packaging is convenient

Negative side (-)

  • Need touch up every 3 hours

 

5. Estee Lauder – Double Wear

This foundation is very good because it could stay up for 8 hours and it is not very cakey. However, this product does not prevent oil that much. I would say that this product is good for people that like natural result with less oil appearance.

Positive side (+)

  • Medium coverage (60%)
  • Last up to 8 hours
  • Natural finish look

Negative side (-)

  • A bit expensive
  • It doesn’t reduce oil as much as the others foundations for oily skin
