best makeup for oily skin?

I have out of control oily skin, and can NOT seem to find the right face makeup.  I have gone through countless primer's (which all failed) and now i am on a hunt to find a foundation/powder that works best.  I would really like some advice from people who have the same issue! Please list any makeup products you use that have worked for your oily skin and some background stories! thanks!

Notifiy me with emails too

Best makeup for oily skin

One of the best I have found is Bare Minerals.  It is made from all natural minerals (no additives) and does not add oil to your face.  Be sure to get the "Original."  It is a powder you apply with a brush, and it is a great foundation with good coverage. 

Also Pur Minerals is good.  It, too, is made from natural minerals (no additives) and is a baked fomula; so it is not a powder.  It is comparable to Bare Minerals, just not a loose powder.

Holy grail foundation

I recently bought the new smashbox 15 hour studio skin foundation and it really controls my oil throughout the day! It dries to a matte finish and rather quickly. I have really big pores in my t-zone too. I only have to blot about once a day. Before I bought the smashbox foundation, I was using ysl teint resist which is still one of my favorites but it does make me oily faster and have to blot 3/4 times a day. If you do decide to buy the smashbox foundation, it is better for people with yellow undertone because the foundation is quite yellow. I apply it with my beauty blender.

I was in the SAME situation.

Have had terribly oily skin for years, and awful acne. Heard that primer was the solution--couldn't find one that worked (tried at least half a dozen). Tried several toners and other stuff, none worked. MAC ProLongwear foundation and Blot powder have really helped my skin look less oily throughout the day! I highly recommend.
