Hi, myahmarie. Since the BE Matte Mineral Foundation turns orange on you when you put on a lot (or enough to get the coverage you want), that means that the makeup is oxidizing. There is not an exact ingredient that can be pinpointed as to what causes foundations to oxidize. It has more to do with certain foundations and the way they interact with each person's different body chemistry. Oxidization happens when the oils in your skin or foundation are interfering with the pigments, causing the color to intensify and turn orange, or in some cases, a shade or two darker. I personally think that you should change foundations since the BE Matte Mineral Foundation is not giving you the coverage you want and it is oxidizing on you.
I have very oily skin and I would like to share with you what has worked best for me to keep my oiliness under control, including what foundation primer, foundation and setting powder has worked best.
The best way to help control oiliness is to use an oil-controlling primer. The best oil-controlling foundation primers that I have ever used to stop my extreme oiliness from breaking through are the following two:
Make Up For Ever All Mat Foundation Primer which you can read more about at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P16
Givenchy Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer which you can read all about at: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml;jsessionid
A fantastic foundation for oily skin is Make Up For Ever All Mat + Mattifying Foundation. It’s a shine controlling, oil-free, water-resistant, complete coverage liquid foundation that hides imperfections, evens out skin tone, and mattifies with a non-oily, perfectly powdered finish. The result is flawless and lasts for hours. Although this foundation provides full coverage, the end result is completely adjustable to fit your needs (a little goes a long way). You can find it here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P17
You can use Make Up For Ever’s “Foundation Shade Finder” tool to help you choose the correct shade to match your skin tone. You can access it here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/brand_hierarchy.jhtm
Also, I would recommend setting your foundation with Urban Decay’s De-Slick Mattifying Foundation Powder which is a colorless, shine-controlling powder that comes in a handy mirrored compact so you can carry it with you for touchups throughout the day. You can find it at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P21
By the way, you can continue to use your MUFE Concealer as a spot cover on any hard to cover blemishes or spots that the foundation doesn't cover.
Hope this helps!
Have a great day!
