This one’s for all us oily girls, because we’ll be real: finding the perfect foundation can be a struggle if your skin is oily. You know what we mean; it’s the end of the day and your skin looks greasy and your foundation has moved all over the place! This is where these three foundations come in to save the day (or your foundation). Trust us, we’ve tried a lot of foundations, and these are the ones that actually kept our oily skin (we normally get midday shine come 11am!) in check!
Finish: Radiant finish
Shades: 20 shades from fair to deep
We have to admit, we were a little skeptical when the Ciaté foundation first landed on our desk. Although we know we can rely on Ciaté for nail polish, foundation is a completely different ball game. But we were seriously impressed; it immediately blurred our pores and covered imperfections (it’s medium to full-coverage) and when we went to touch up later on in the day, we realized we didn’t have to.
The 16-hour wear foundation is dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic, and is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t block your pores. Plus, it’s formulated with hyaluronic acid; a key ingredient for oily skin (find out why here), as well as bamboo extract to reduce oil production. To give your skin a radiant finish it also contains botanical extracts, mimosa and artic rose, which are bursting with antioxidants. If you want to put the foundation to the test, they also provide a 14-day trial with free returns, which tells you how much they believe in the product!
Tip: Use one pump for light to medium coverage and two pumps for full coverage. Set with a dusting of setting powder, particularly on your T-zone, to keep it locked in all day.
