Just like how people struggle to find the right skin foundation for dry skin, oily skinned girls like us to have our own troubles. Everything wears off in a few hours and we start shining bright like a diamond which is not always a good look to walk around with. And if you do load yourself up with powder the matt look wears out a few hours later. Of course, there are various products in the market designed or girls with oily skin but those are not always friendly on the pocket.
Best Budget-Friendly Foundation For Oily Skin
I have been struggling to find one for myself and after a lot of trials and spending some money on products that turned out to be completely useless I have come down to shortlist some of the best drug store foundations that’s a must try for every oily skinned girl. So girls let’s get started.
CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Foundation
The Clean Oil Control Makeup Foundation is just perfect for oily skin. The formulation is lightweight and gentle on the skin. Since the product is specifically made for oily skin, it also keeps the skin under control. Some of the oil control foundations I have tried did make my face dry and stretchy, unlike those the CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Foundation is noncomedogenic making it perfect for oily and sensitive skin. The product stays on the skin for a good 3 to 4 hours depending on whether you spend time indoors or outside. But above all this why I love this product is because it gives me breakouts. The only downside I see with this is that it can be oxidizing on some people and may look cakey when layered too much.
Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation
The Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation is the closest high-end foundation dupe you can get your hands on. The foundation is full coverage and perfect for oily skin. The main issue with most powder foundation is that it gives a chalk look. I usually don’t love power foundation so much but the Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation is just the right consistency and hassle-free to carry around in the bag for a quick touch up. The product stays on the skin for a good 5 to 6 hours with is great for the price you pay. The downside here is the shade range, some of you might find thought getting the right shade.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation
The sensational Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation is indeed sensational because of its awesome quality. The product is medium coverage but can be built to a full coverage foundation. The consistency of the foundation is perfect for the oily skin and if you have pore this founds works best in blurring them out. The product contains micro-powders that absorb any excess oil for a matte and poreless. since it blurs out the pore, initially I had a doubt if this product would break me out, but it didn’t. it stays on the face for a good 7 to 8 hours. the product is perfect the only negative I could come up with is the packaging, I wish it was sitting a pump bottle rather than in a normal open lid one.
Maybelline Fit Me! Shine Free+Balance Stick
This favorite of mine is too from the Maybelline Fit Me range, the Shine Free+Balance Stick comes in the form of a stick, which means travel-friendly. This one can last you for a good 3 to 4 hour hours and make you look flawless. The product is easy to apply and blend. The downside- you have to blend it out well if you don’t want to look like you are wearing a mask.
