I'm nearly 35 and still havent found the right foundation. sad
Fed up of spending a fortune in teh meantime.

I have skin that gets agreasy t zone over the course of the day. Chanel vit doesnt do it, lily lobo - cakey, cant have the matt chanel one as not light enough, clinique feels too heavy.
Anyone recommend one for around a tenner?

have you tried using a pre-base? i've never used foundation, but i do use ruby & millie pre-base which has no colour but takes all the shine off, then concealer and powder. maybe the prebase plus a light foundation/tinted moisturiser would do it?

I've just started to get no7 stuff so would be worth a trip there. How much is the ruby and millie prebase?

Barbara Daly for Tesco oil free foundation is great, I gave up Chanel for it, and it's only a fiver smile

what about a powder based foundation?

I have horrid half dry, half oily, fair skin.
Benefit non-fiction is great.

if you have used lily lolo did you spray your made up skin (pre mascara) with water? Makes a huge difference, you can buy special spray but imagine tap water would do as well. If yo haven't done this with LL it might be worth going back to it for a try....

i like benefit stuff, their hello flawless powder and you rebel tinted moisturiser, and erase paste are brilliant

I have found no 7 mineral foundation to be veh good. Makes you look dead healthy.

Chanel MATT Lumiere is def what you are looking for!

ooops sorry, juts read your original post and see that you have tried this already blush

would suggest then as others hae advised, a base - No 7 do a matt base you put under your foundation i'd try that?

Avon do a pre-base too, I think they do a tinted one now. It has a lovely feel to it. Maybelline Liquid Mineral foundation is lovely.
