Hey, just looking for setting powder/foundation recommendations. I have just changed from benefit hello flawless 02 wow (or something along those lines) it was powdery and didn't suit my colour at all! I also have the matching powder which I find cakes. I recently purchased

..... (Sorry fat finger syndrome).
I recently purchased Rimmel anti fatigue foundation which I like but it goes oily half way through the day! I have used the benefit powder and about three other (fairly cheap) powders I have already, none help the mid day oil slick. I need foundation help (that doesn't break the bank) my skin is dehydrated with a tendency to spots (hormonal) and oily t-zone. I also need a concealer, that won't sit in my fine lines. Please someone help blush

Hi I think by far the best for me is the stay matte one rimmel I think? Quite perfumed but I love the smell blush I found others like bare minerals settled into small lines on my forehead and dry patches on my skin. I was shocked at how good it was for under a fiver! Foundation I'm sorry to say nothing has come close to my holy grail that is estee lauder double wear. I've tried cheaper but I think it never works plus I end up using twice as much and then have to top up every few hours. This is full coverage though but saves me havingvto use concealer. A good Budget concealer is collection its under a fiver. It's doesn't last all day though. I quite like the benefit one tbh. I also love shy beam from benefit its only atm available in a gift set but i buy mine online seperate. Its amazing! Its concealer that doesnt sit in my undereye lines. A miracle for me. Have you tried any blotting paper for excess oil? Never needed them myself so can't recommend one though. Hope this helps.

I find the best powder is cornsilk original satin translucent powder (loose not pressed)

Can find it in some pharmacies and boots. About £8

I use no 17 concealer stick for years and it does the job

Smashbox pore minimising primer is fab for keeping the shine at bay but pricey at around £25 but lasts for ages (nearly a year for me)

The best foundation I've found for my combination oily skin is Clinique superbalanced. Once again not cheap at about £22 but you only need a small amount and it lasts ages too
