Re saving money, I don't mind paying for Lancome because a bottle will probably last me two years! And I like the fact that I don't have to find the colour match myself - they do it for me at the counter (and give me freebies and do my make-up...)
I think Lancôme do the best foundations. I've tried every brand going and they have the best formulas. I use Teint Idole 24hr. Oily t zone, acne prone (although clear at the moment), very pale, like coverage to cover red bits around nose and the odd lingering mark but not the heavy look. This is perfect for that and lasts way longer than any other I've tried.
Highly recommend the Real Techniques stippling brush for application of any foundation. Read about it on here and really surprised at the difference it makes.
Another vote for Lancome foundations, I also have combination skin. Other brands I've generally found to be too chalky or too oily. Having said that I'm currently using Clinique BB cream which is good for a natural look.
