Please, please, please... tell me what foundation you love that has good coverage and matte finish since I have oily and sun damaged skin, I have used Prescriptives for years, the virtual matte oil control satin matte finish medium to full coverage but they have been out of stock for months and I have to find something new because in a week I will be out of foundation. I have a feeling they are going to discontinue this line of foundation, I hope not because it is great. JUST NAME YOUR FAVORITE MAKEUP IN THE WORLD THAT HAS GOOD COVERAGE. Thanks!

Best one I've used is Estee Lauder Double Wear. I have oily skin. It's not totally matte, but not too dewy either. Besides, you can always use a little powder to make it more matte. I find that I do not even need powder when I wear this foundation because it makes my skin look so much better.

I do like the Estee Lauder Double Wear, though it can be pricey. Lately I've been using the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer with fairly satisfactory results.

I've read good things about the Kat Von D Lock-It foundation, but I found it didn't have very good staying power for me.

Revlon ColorStay Makeup For Combo/Oily Skin | Ulta Beauty

I bought this by mistake. I have dry skin. But I've been applying it with a lot of moisturizer and I can vouch that it stays put and has a matte finish.

When I first used it I was amazed at how it covered and was so matte. I can recommend this stuff for what you want. This is a great product.

I second the Revlon Color Stay. I have the oiliest skin on the planet. I swear 30 minutes after I apply foundation I need to blot the oil away. I have an endless supply of oil absorbent sheets and mattifiers. I read some reviews on this and was reluctant to give it a try. My goodness this stuff us GOOD! I'm still oily in my T zone area but this has been reduced tremendously. I still use the ELF Mattifying Balm, maybe once a day (late afternoon). It's really natural to my skin tone. It does not stain my clothing as much either. I can hug someone and not feel bad about leaving half my face on their shirt.

I loved perscriptives. They had great colors. MAC, Nars, Lancome and Clinique are all options with a range of shades supported

You can still order Prescriptives online but unfortunately I am afraid they are going to discontinue the line of foundation which I use. I tried MAC, Nars and Lancome and they could not match the color or coverage.
