Suggestions for base and powder

I'm building a second make up bag to leave in my gym kit. Would like to try a different base and powder but currently don't have the time to go traipsing round the beauty counters.

I have Clinique Stay Matte which I quite like as it's easy to just put a bit on to the main areas and blend.

As it'll be after the gym/pool, I want something that won't immediately slide off slightly clammy skin, and that I can order from John Lewis online!

Would a BB cream be a good idea? I'm quite freckly, with a lot of colour from sensitivity, brown hair and eyes.

Would also like a suggestion of a powder that I add too. I use NARS light reflecting one at home which is lush but the pot doesn't travel well and its too expensive to be chucking about every time I open the lid!

L'oreal true match do a cream to powder style foundation which would suit your needs. I haven't tried it. But the true match liquid blends beautifully
