  2. Maybelline Fit Me Matte Foundation
  3. Covergirl Clean Oil Control Foundation
  4. L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte 24 Hr Foundation
  5. Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
  6. Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation


If you haven’t heard of THIS foundation, I’m pretty sure that you have been away from the world of makeup for some time.

This is a cult-cult-cult favorite of all the beauty bloggers in the world! This has a staying power of more than 10 hours and makes your skin look natural if applied correctly! You have to give credit to Revlon for coming up with this formula!


Maybelline fit me matte is THE PERFECT FOUNDATION FOR OILY SKIN. Period. If you want a detailed review on this foundation you can check it out on here. Maybelline Fit me Matte Review.
This foundation guys…Made me go speechless! I tried it out on an important day out and it stayed MATTE yet not the dries-out-your-skin-to-death matte, if you know what I mean! If you have the following words on your mind all day, this is for you: Oily, Matte, Longwearing.


IF you have a total of $10 in your wallet and are searching for a nice foundation to cure that oiliness created by your face, say hello to Covergirl Clean Oil Control Foundation! Do not worry for it to clog your pores because the formula was created keeping that in mind.

4. L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte 24-HR-Foundation

This Foundation deserves an in-depth review because there are so many good things for me to talk about regarding this. If you are out for long, then definitely use this matte foundation, I personally haven’t worn it for 24 hours but I fairly have a 13-hour-work-day, and it has never failed me even once!


If you are lazy like me and don’t want to get into the detailed process of applying:

  • Primer
  • Concealer
  • Foundation

Here you go; Covergirl is here to save the day. Omit the priming-your-skin and applying-a-concealer step, save your time and number of products and at the same time, keep your oily skin in control. What else could you possibly as for from life?


For those of you who are regular visitors of Sliche, you might have come across the in-depth review of the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation, the foundation gives a 12 hour coverage but you have to be careful with its application!

Final words:

All the foundations mentioned are super affordable and they have a great coverage, which you obviously need for your oily skin. The foundations would give you a seamless coverage and a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup. Apart from that, some of these come with their respective finishing powders. So if you want to be on the safe side, try those powders, especially in your t-zone.

Also, you need to see if your skin needs a primer underneath or not, some primers are said to calm down your skin when it goes mad and produces oil which can actually make your makeup melt. I will make a separate post on makeup primers as well.
