Re: Whats a good foundation for helping control shine?

I tried the new Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation because it was free after a rebate at Wallgreens a few weeks ago. Much to my surprise, I really liked it. The color I got isn't too orangy or pinky. It controlls shine well and didn't make me break out. I tried it during the daytime, (even though I don't usually wear a lot of foundation during the day) and it kept me shineless for most of the day. I think it started to melt a little by about 5 o'clock and I put it on about 9 a.m. I like it best for evenings though, when you want to look more polished; it really holds up for me during evenings out (providing I don't do something sweaty like bowling or dancing). The texture of the makeup is also awesome. It feels a little weird at first (sorta spongey), but it's super smooth when you put it on. I'd give this a try. It's not super expensive and it's a pretty good drug store find. It's especially great if you can get it on sale!

Mineral makeup - but only the kind without bismuth & shiny mica. The matte finish micas are great. Some companies also sell a mattifying primer if you need additional help with shine. AL & Geografx both have one - and both have matte finish foundations.

Loreal, the kind in the stick. It is awesome! Forget all the fancy, pricey stuff and just try this. It's better than Clinique and MAC and everything I've tried. Seriously, try it. It's cheap and also you can return it to the store if you don't like it and get your $8 back.

Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation works well for me. It gives me the coverage I need and controls oil since I have oily skin too. It's 14.00 and the tube lasts me about 3-4 months....a little goes a long way. It also has age fighting benefits with Vitamin C and E. I also use their beauty blotters...keep them in my purse if I need to touch up.

Happy Holidays! Leslie

Re: Whats a good foundation for helping control shine?

Hi,

Make sure you start with a good base to work on, so use a moisturiser suitable for oily skin or at least oily/combination skin, then make sure your foundation is oil free. Laura Mercier oil free foundation is quite pricey, but lasts all day, looks amazing and will keep you matt! If there are particular areas that get very oily you can try using an anti-shine product (available from mac, makeup forever and even the body shop), tap it onto certain areas like the t-zone to soak up excess oil, use it instead of or on top of moisturiser. And of course, the Mac blot powder that everyone has been recommending will keep shine at bay throughout the day.
