For oily skin, we are struggling the most with keeping our make up in place – because most of them times, after 2-3 hours our skin will start to get oily and ruin the makeup. That’s why it is crucial to find the right foundation – not only because it is the based on makeup, but also because the right foundation for oily skin will help to set out make up in place for up o 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, normally I don’t need to use concealer, the reason is that this foundation has covered everything. The price is a little bit expensive, but its worth the price. It cost around 38 pound-sterling. My advice is, if you have more savings, this foundation is a really good investment.

Positive side (+)

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

Negative side (-)

  • A bit expensive
  • The packaging is not convenient

 

2. MAC – Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

MAC is my first foundation. It is very good for oily skin, but the result it’s a little bit strong. With this, the makeup 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, it does not really fit you. 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. Overall, 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 … is the best drug store foundations 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

Overall, 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. This foundation is good for people that like a 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
