    I have oily skin and have used Clinique ever since I started wearing make-up with the exception of about a year when I used Origins.

    I LOVE Cliniques pump face soap, the toner, and moisturizing gel (all for oily skin). But, I want a change in the actual make-up.

    I need something that will not make me more oily and will be a good cover up. My skin has a red tint to it (no Rosacea).

    I have heard that MAC foundation and powder sucks. I do like their eyeshadows though.


    So, what do you use?

        Martha, Mac Makeup is made for professional "on screen" use and so in snapshots you will look really white-like realy pale-but in professional photography its usually fine.
        I would not use their face make up but I agree their eyeshadows are great.

            I heart Bobbi Brown for normal use. I have oily skin too and she has a nice oil free powder.

                I recently switched to Bare Essentials and love it. It doesnt feel like you have anything on your face and at least for me it made the redness in some areas disappear!!

                  I have oily skin and have heard the Bare Essentials makes the skin oily. What do you think?

                    I have fairly oily skin and I think it has worked better than anything. If you have a Ulta around you they have a huge selection and will put the makeup on you that way you can test it before you buy it. Its just a light powder for the foundation and the blush so there is no liquid.
