Face makeup heeeellllpppp!

I am so frustrated. I set about about two months ago to find new face makeup because I noticed that my MAC studio fix powder was sliding off of my face by the end of my 12+ hour shift as a nurse. Within the past year or so, my face has become oily on my forehead, nose, and chin. Hello combination skin. I've always had dry dry dry skin before.  yes, I use a primer: Laura mercier classic primer. These are the following foundations that I have tried so far but have not lasted on my face:

laura mercier creme smooth: did not stay on my face AT ALL, my face looked wet all day

laura mercier oil free: too drying in spots and oilier in others

laura mercier silk creme: slides off my face at the end of the day

dior air flash: does anyone use this? It's really strange esp application. Not worth it for the $$$$

Some Chanel foundation that was stupid expensive too and didn't give me any coverage.

Bobbi brown: long wear even finish: looked SO dewy all day, looked like wearing sweating all day






oh and I use benefit moisturizer. Please help, I'm getting married in October and I need to not look ridiculous!

The clinique stay matte is awesome. its a little tricky to find the right shade. i wear golden neutral which comes off a little too yellow, but blended out with the right powder it looks awesome. i suggest checking it out in store.  i have combo skin btw. i also wear SB light primer underneath and thats done wonders to control the oils around my nose and chin. I first tried the travel size which lasts about 3mons. Set with a spray, and once its dried about 10mins later i like to use MUFE hd powder just the tiniest amount pressed into the oily areas, also travel size since you don't need a lot of it.
