We all want a foundation that stands up to our expectations. While our choices regarding coverage and finish (dewy, satiny, matte and so on) vary, we definitely want a foundation that doesn’t oxidize. Foundations that oxidize make us look ghostly and darker than our original skin tone. To help you choose a great non-oxidizing foundation, I have compiled a list. This list is specially meant for combination-oily skinned beauties.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup SPF 10
A great foundation that does stay in place from the house of Estee Lauder. It sets quickly and doesn’t budge unless you remove it with a dedicated makeup remover. A perfect matte finish, that doesn’t look cakey or leave a whitish cast. And, you will definitely find your skin tone match in the great shade range.
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
A high-end foundation with long staying power, suitable for oily skin – this is what this foundation stick is. This cute little stick is perfect for people on their toes, as it can be slipped into the smallest of spaces. The buildable coverage makes sure you have every zit, spot and mark hidden away.
Chambor Orosa Skin Fusion Foundation SPF 15
A gorgeous foundation from Chambor that gives luxuriously smooth skin. With a moderately matte finish that can be easily set with a compact, this gives a flawless skin. Wear it and forget it, as you can be assured it won’t let you down on the craziest of days.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Matte Foundation
L’Oreal’s matte foundation doesn’t look flat and perfectly hides all the blemishes and dark patches of your skin. It has excellent staying power and will be your BFF for long days where you want your makeup to stay put. It doesn’t oxidize and thus you are camera ready all day.
MAC Pro Longwear Foundation
This long wear foundation sits comfortably and gives an amazingly natural finish to your skin. Even without a primer, it easily lasts for 12 hours and looks fresh. MAC hardly disappoints and this formulation is a godsend for beauties with oily skin.
Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation
It has been rated 5/5 on IMBB and not without good reasons. It is a medium coverage foundation which can be built up to cover every blemish and scar. It gives the most perfect airbrushed finish and easily lasts 10+ hours even without a primer. No worries of your foundation oxidizing within a few hours!
Maybelline Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation On-the-Go
If you are looking for a cushion foundation which doesn’t break your bank and performs on par with luxury brands, here it is. This on-the-go cushion gives a smooth, flawless and dewy finish. It never feels patchy or sticky and seamlessly blends into the skin. It easily lasts the better half of a day without oxidizing or fading.
