5. Doesn’t Last: CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup Oil Control
Despite its name says ‘Oil Control’, this foundation appears to be doing nothing of that kind. It also tends to dry cakey on your face – and doesn’t even last that long (3 hours on average)!
“If you think this foundation will help you control the oil on your face, think again. This foundation goes on pretty normal coverage but dries very cakey if you don’t put only a very small amount on. I’m still in school and this foundation lasts 3 out of the 6 hours I’m there and then shows my oil the rest of the day…”
Other complaints involve the packaging: “…The packaging is dumb like really a glass bottle who is that good for? When I run out of it I’m not buying this foundation again. I don’t know about the other options of this foundation like not the oily skin version but this one is terrible for oily skin and combination skin like mine.” – Mamamiamakeup1
4. Lasts All Day: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
A firm favorite, probably used or tested by 85% of makeup artists and beauty gurus at least one time, this foundation promises to (and does!) last 15 hours – regardless of heat, humidity and constant face touching.
Many consider this formula to be pretty close to YSL’s All Hours’ (mentioned above) but, between the two, Estee ($42 from Sephora) would probably win 9 times out of 10.
“I have oily/combo skin and this is my go-to foundation for events (weddings, functions – long-wearing makeup days) Great shade range- although I do find it leans a little orangey-pinkey; yellow undertones(me) may have a little bit of trouble finding the right shade, I needed to be matched twice before I actually found my shade. Keeps shine from breaking through, and even when the oil does start to show at the end of the day, the foundation doesn’t break up or fade. Has a beautiful matte/satin finish that keeps you looking alive after applying and not chalky.” – @Whathappenedtomybody on ‘Beauty Bulletin’.
