Good Foundations to Use??

I'm looking for a new foundation to use. I need a foundation that's medium to full coverage and preferably not in a big bottle as I don't use it too often. Preferably with a cost that's under $50. I was thinking of trying Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Foundation. What do you guys think of this particular foundation and what are some other good foundations? I have an oily T-zone, am acne-prone with blackheads, and normal skin everywhere else on my face, and have light skin with neutral/warm undertones.

I was so excited when I found out about the fenty beauty foundation but then when I finally got my hands on it and tried it for myself I was truly disappointed. Within a few hours my face was a greasy oily mess. And it oxidized terribly and would make me look orange and another shade I tried made my skin look ashy. I am an Y365 in MUFE for reference. I think the best foundation for oily skin from sephora would be lancome teint idole and if you want something drug store I would try L'oreal Pro Matte.

I have oily skin and a super oily t-zone. My favorite foundation is the Estée Lauder double wear. It lasts all day and has buildable coverage. It recently went up in price, now costs $42 but it’s worth it. I really wanted to love the Fenty foundation because it was less expensive but every time I wore it, it didn’t last on my nose or did not look as nice compared to double wear.  I would also recommend smashbox photo finish or maybelline fit me matte and poreless. 

Re: Good Foundations to Use??

Just keep in mind with the fenty foundation that it is very matte and may dry out your skin that is not super oily


Re: Good Foundations to Use??

Are you looking for a matte finish? I've been using Estee Lauder Double Wear and am loving it. It is buildable and covers what I need to cover while not looking like I'm wearing layers upon layers of makeup. And of course it lasts all day, even on my shiny nose.
