  1. Has it been your experience that mattifying liquid foundation settles into scars, making them look more noticeable as the day wears on? (Actually, this question could apply to powder foundation, as well, though I'm more concerned about liquid foundation at present.) I'm thinking of trying Estee Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup (liquid foundation), which many reviewers on Ulta.com state has a mattifying effect. That's great for oily-looking skin and large pores--both of which I have; but I'm concerned that a mattifying foundation--especially one with potentially heavy coverage--could settle into my scars, making them more noticeable. (My scars are rolling, though I've one boxcar.) Thank you, PI Apologies for the DP.

  3. So far, 40 people have viewed this post--or maybe one person has viewed it 40 times ()--and not one reply. *sigh* So if anyone could recommend oil-free, non-comedogenic products--a primer, a foundation (powder or liquid), or both--I would be very grateful. (I'm going out of town on 5/7/17 and wanted something I could wear for long hours during each day of my trip.) I tried viewing the master list of non-comedogenic products, linked within the post titled "The Bad List: Comedogenic Ingredients and Products" by Green Gables. Unfortunately, that list is no longer available, as noted by several other forum members; so my attempt to find a list of oil-free, non-comedogenic foundations and primers has been thwarted. (I don't trust the "best-rated" lists provided by magazines and online beauty sites, for the most part.) Thank you, PI
  4. I'll be traveling in a few days and my skin just now has begun breaking out, 6 months after I stopped taking birth control (Minastrin 24-Fe). I'm in need of a two reliable oil-free, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic products: 1) an oil-absorbing primer and 2) a foundation. (I'd like to try a mineral powder foundation, but it may not be the best option, as my skin's oil production is increasing and I have rolling scars, which may be more obvious due to powder; still, I've read that certain mineral makeup is better for acne-prone skin than liquid makeup.) For more than a year, I've been wearing Revlon ColorStay for Combination/Oily Skin; it's suited me well, but now I'm nervous that maybe something better--even less irritating and liable to cause cystic acne--may be out there that I just haven't tried yet. Thank you, PI
