FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: Five Affordable, Long-Lasting Foundations For Oily Skin

I just read on the news that November will be pretty ripe with holidays; personally, I don't find this productive. :/ We have so many holidays that kids lose a lot of time learning in school and grown- ups lose a lot of chances completing more tasks at work. Instead of holidays, why not turn it into working and at- home schooling holidays? Use the Internet!

Okay that's enough rant for today. Here are top five foundations that last long and are definitely perfect for oily skin. Thanks Dhaic and Janina for the question! ;)


I remember the time when drugstore formulas weren't that good; nowadays, it's hard to tell anymore if you're wearing drugstore makeup because they have improved immensely. When it comes to drugstore foundation, there are still areas to improve on like shade options, but the texture, quality, and staying power have come a long way.

Here are top 5 foundations that are affordable, long- lasting, and more than perfect for oily skin!

- A good, full coverage foundation with great staying power; it has decent oil control, but not as good as the rest of the foundations in this post, but coverage stays put even with sweat and oil.

- One of my favorite, dependable long- lasting affordable foundations. This provides full coverage controls oil effectively, and fades minimally during wear.

- Another really good long- lasting foundation; this provides all- day, matte finish and the oil- free formula makes it ideal for really oily skin because it won't feel heavy.

- Makeup World is a very good discovery of mine for 2017. Cover Up Foundation provides lasting, full coverage; controls oil and the lightweight formula is perfect for the tropical weather.

- Another drugstore favorite of mine. I use this almost everyday when I want lasting, good coverage without having to touch my Kat Von D Lock It (my HG long- lasting foundation, but it's expensif!).

Hope you like this list! Share your favorites!

  3. My mom and I like the BYS Creme Foundation. My mom likes it that she has already bought her 2nd pan. We get it here at Watson's SM Sucat. I am going to get Pink Sugar's Our Little Secret by next month or December. I can already buy it in SM SUcat Department store. Keep on posting Ms M.

  4. Huhu eto kelangan ko! Bilis mag oily ng fez ko. Gusto ko subukan yun Pink Sugar

  5. Waaa! The Loreal Infallible Pro Matte is also one of my top picks for oily skin. I have a very very VERY oily skin. Ever since bata pa ako. I mean, I could solve our country's economic problems with the oil my skin produces HAHAHAHA Good thing I took a chance and invested in Loreal Infallible Pro Matte! Thanks for this, Ms. Martha!

  6. Great list! :D

    PS - The link to Infallible points to BYS :)

  7. Oohh I like how majority of the items mentioned are easy to find! I am starting to use foundation also and the nature of my job is field work. I find wearing foundation sticky, but Maybelline powder foundation changed my mind. With that, I am now also starting to play with liquid foundation for casual days.

  8. Thanks for posting girl! I'm really in need of a good foundation these days haha.

    Love the Pink Sugar one - I always fall for cute packaging ;)

  9. Revlon Colorstay is my first love. It matches my skin so well and it stays on though Loreal last a bit longer on me.

  10. I have the L'oreal Pro Matte. I want to try the BYS and the Pink Sugar, I've watched good reviews about it.

  11. I am currently using the BYS Matte Cream Foundation and I love it!
