Use non-comedogenic makeup products....make sure you are thoroughly cleaning your face after removing makeup every night...(foaming plant based cleansers IMO)..........& use *LOOSE POWDER*. Pressed powder can contain oils.......a setting spray works better IMO...........

Argan oil is great. I really like Josie Maran products and wear the tinted moisturizer and use the argan oil products a couple of times a day. There are also foundations, but only in 3 shades so they might not work for you. The oil products do well to moisturize so your body isn’t producing all that excess oil/sebum.

Eh, don't really care if some people think he's serious or not. He's a self made millionaire with multiple business and investments, which I respect. His stuff works for me. What I have used has been good quality and fairly priced. The liquid lips have good color, stay in place all day and aren't super expensive (for me personally).

Is it good to be “addicted” to anything, you think?

What if you took half of the thousands you were spending on your face every year, and saved it? Just asking.
I agree that I don't like how they added the word addicted. I'm not addicted I just enjoy putting on makeup.in fact, in the new year I plan on wearing more and making a daily effort to look made up, even though I'm a stay at home mom...

Question for those who use Bare Minerals foundation: I have very dry skin and despite using serums, moisturizers and a foundation primer my make-up will still cake on my face sometimes. I have tried using my fingers, a foundation brush and that new egg shaped sponge. Does Bare Minerals leave a cakey look on your face or is it okay for dry skin?

I cannot use any moisturizers or serums on my face. I get faint and chest tightness and it's really scary. I am talking about high-end ones, Estee Lauder, Lancôme. I threw them all out. It's the chemicals in those products. Even some common lotions do this to me. I don't understand.

Have you tried 100% pure oils? What would work best for you depends on your skin type. I think I have a friend who had this issue as well. I am not sure what they put in face creams. Have you tried the sensitive skin brands like Clinique or the cheaper drugstore ones for sensitive skin like CeraVe or Cetaphil? I personally like CeraVe.

Yes, CeraVe is the only lotion/cream that does not bother me! My daughter recommended it and used it on her daughter's diaper rash, when she was a baby so I figured if a baby can tolerate it I could. I love it! I also bought Aveeno and got the same bad reaction. Weird, because this is such a common lotion. So as far as wrinkle cream/serum goes, I will have wrinkles but still be alive! LOL.

I have oily skin (facially) also. Being that you have oily skin, I'm surprised that you use a moisturizer on your face. Were you using it along with the foundations that you were trying out?
There are a few foundations that state they're for oily skin, both on the high end and low end price scale. However, the shine will still break through on my skin within two hours of me applying my makeup regardless of which brand I use.

I've found that using a quality primer has helped a lot. My foundation no longer slides off my face or fades a few hours after I've put it on. It stays on and fresh looking throughout the day. I keep translucent powder on hand to deal with the inevitable oil and shine. As someone else pointed out, pressed powder is not the way to go for a person with oily skin. The reason being is that pressed powder has oil in it as the binding agent for the powder. A few years ago, when I used pressed powder, it would cake up on my face by a certain point in the day. The oil in it had met and mixed with the oils in my skin. You should try loose powder. Loose powder acts as an absorbent and doesn't cake up, from my experience.
