Girls, What is a great drug store foundation to use for oily skin?

I hate when my foundation looks oily and shiny after a few hours. I end up having to dab my face with a napkin when I'm out. It's embarrassing. I need something that looks flawless and natural.

  • Anything matte.
    L'Oréal infallible pro matte or maybelline fit me matte and poreless are probably solid choices.

    • Basically, stay away from anything with a dewey finish. It will just add more oil.

    • it doesn't have a lot of oil in it and for me personally it works so great! Also I used to have acne, so I really take care what products I use now

  • I don't have a suggestion for foundation but I can tell you coffee filters will blot the oil while keeping your makeup in tact ;)

  • Google "water-based" foundation (avoid silicone-based ones bc they clog pores).
    You should also finish with a mattifying powder (to combat shine).
    Laura Mercier has mattifying ones (a pressed kind and a loose kind). Just use it in your t-zone (with a light hand). You should keep blotting papers in your purse and the (translucent) mattifying powder with you for touch-ups.

  • I love loreal true match. I have very pale skin, and they do a great job of offering foundations that perfectly blend it. It also feels light, never looks caked on, and doesn't feel oily. They also have powder to match.

  • If you set it with powder, it stay shine-free and it will last longer. I really like the rimmel stay matte powder. I usually just use it over my t-zone, if you use too much matte I feel like it kind of makes your face look flat and unnatural.

  • You should watch Zabrena on YouTube because:

    1. She makes a lot of videos where she drugstore products and she did a couple on foundations and BB creams

    2. She had oily skin like you

    3. She's really funny 😂😂😂

    I'm sorry to have to recommend YouTube videos to you as opposed to just helping you myself, but I have dry skin which is the opposite of your problem 😂😂😂

  • Something light like a BB cream. Garnier makes a nice one. And a loose powder to set, will also help keep shine down.
