Gleaming forehead, glistening T-Zone, and greasy cheeks? Fear not for your selfies. We bring you the foundations best-reviewed by customers who share your oily/combination skin types! By their accounts, these babies tone down the shine and bring back the sparkle.

VMV Hypoallergenics Skin Savvy 60 Foundation, P1,875
Nikki, Combination Skin: “I would buy and use this foundation until the end of time—I swear! (Or until they stop making this, which I strongly hope they don’t!!!) I’ve tried a lot of liquid/cream foundations and this one is the best for me. I have oily combination skin and it has high oil control and excellent coverage, plus it provides SPF60 sunscreen not only from the sun but also from indoor infrared light. I don’t use special tools like foundation brushes, sponges or whatnot, just my trusty little fingers which blend this cream flawlessly.”

L’Oréal Paris Pro-Matte 16HR Powder, P600
Mary, Oily Skin: “This has bee a go-to foundation for me since I have really oily skin and it’s a lot more affordable than the MAC foundation I used to splurge on. It keeps oil at bay for a good 6-8 hours (I know it says 16 hours but I think that’s for the poreless finish, not the shine). And the range of shades to choose from simply ensures you get the perfect shade no matter your skin tone! Super love it!”

Pink Sugar Dual Finish Face Powder, P499
Tara, Oily Skin: “This powder makes it so easy to go out with an even-toned face. This also keeps me somewhat less oily, which is good since I’m very, very oily. But aside from making me less oily, this doesn’t give that flat espasol look. Somehow it makes [it] look radiant, not shiny.”

NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation, P640
Janice, Combination Skin: “The NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation is one of the best foundations that I have tried in a really long while. It’s relatively affordable, and it doesn’t melt off my face (since I’m really very oily). I would recommend users to try this. It is very true to the label: you do stay matte, without being flat!”

Ellana Intensive Mineral Foundation, P499
Sheree, Combination Skin: “It’s my first time using this amazing product and I am nothing but amazed! I actually only stumbled upon Ellana on one of your newsletters and I was curious of its claim. Because I have oily skin, I grabbed the chance and bought Ellana’s mineral foundation in French Vanilla. Aside from its pretty packaging, the product works toooo well! Even after arriving home and washing the dishes, my face is still oil free! Highly recommended! Will definitely buy again.”

Maybelline Dream Satin Two-Way Cake Foundation, P399
Hanna, Oily Skin: “I love how it is able to conceal light pimple scars on my face with its soft matte finish. Whenever I’m using this, I need not to retouch nor reapply this foundation on my skin because it can keep oil at bay all throughout the day. But of course, weather here in the Philippines is usually hot and humid, so there are still times when I needed to reapply especially when I sweat a lot. Longevity-wise, this is a must-have; that’s why I’m always repurchasing this product.”
