Another one for IT Cosmetics. I tried the luminous version and it was way too shimmery. They do a matte version too. I’ve tried so many expensive foundations but a lot of them end up breaking my skin out.

sarusarunna :  IT cosmetics CC cream here too! I use the lightest color as well. 

I’ve tried so many different products, and this one is my favorite!  I can still see some of my natural freckles (which I like), but it completely covers redness and evens out my skin tone.  Plus it feels great on, I forget I’m wearing it.  I even showed it to my dermatologist and she was impressed with the mineral SPF.

I use Loreal True Match, and i have to say its brilliant! I have very similar skin to you by the sounds of it and i find it lasts very well on me without being too dry or too oily xx

futuremrs2020 :  I use savvy mineral foundation from Young Living and LOVE it! It doesn’t feel heavy and seems to keep my face covered all day.

cheap option is the wet n wild photo focus foundation. it really is an incredible foundation and looks amazing in photos and its like 6 bucks. lasts all day. natural finish.

expensive option is nars natural radiant foundation. the finish on this stuff is incredible although i cant wear it in the summer, only winter because it tends to get oily after a few hours and i lean oily in the summer months and combo in the winter months

I just bought Makeup Forever branded foundation because I like their coverup. I also have Tarte clay stick foundation.  

I like the tarte it covers but I get super oily by the end of the day even with powder touch up. 

The Makeup Forever is good but I have some dry patches so it shows. It was expensive so I’m deciding if I should return or not. 

I have oily and dry skin with sensitive patches and large pores on my nose area I have no clue how to make foundation look good there. The tarte shows up too. 

I love Hourglass but I had wanted something else. So far I have three super expensive foundations that are all kinda meh for me.

So I’m following!

I used to use Makeup Forever but I’ve switched over to Urban decay naked skin and love it! My skin is dry in places. It’s a great foundation and would definitely recommend to anyone.

Hereforthecake :  Estee Lauder Double Wear was amazing when I had oily skin! Try with a matte primer and setting spray.  You can always set with a translucent powder too.  Too Faced Peach Perfect is also good for oily skin and not as much coverage.

I like the new Colourpop Pop foundation. I have dry skin and it doesn’t dry me out as much.

futuremrs2020 :  I have dry skin most of the time, but the IT Cosemetics Your Skin but Better CC makes me so oily.  I really like the CYO Lifeproof foundation right now, it’s smoothing and glowy, but doesn’t get oily through the day.  I also like the Too Faced Peach Perfect foundation, but if you have dry skin it can look a little cakey.

I use Huda beauty faux filter, it’s amazing, has the best coverage out of all the foundations I’ve used. I also highly rate Estée Lauder double wear and Clinique antiblemish foundation, I have oily blemish prone skin and these all worked really well for me. If you’re on a budget then L’Oréal true match is really good, but doesn’t have the staying power or coverage of the more expensive foundations imo.
