right now i'm using the everyday minerals powder foundation, it works well but it emphasizes the dry spots on my skin which is gross. so, I'm looking to get a liquid foundation that won't make me too shiny throughout the day and something that is Noncomedogenic

How much coverage are you looking for? I'm experiencing the same problem and I just bought Covergirl Trublend...

Pros:
1. Cheap
2. Matches my skin pretty well (had to try it on first)
3. Feels like I'm wearing nothing
4. Doesn't seem to be clogging my pores

Cons:
1. Still shows flaky skin, though not as bad
2. Took me a while to choose the right shade
3. You still need to use concealer as the coverage is sheer/medium

Not sure about oil control as I have been pretty dry using the BP.

Hope this helps a little.

Oh, some recs that I've seen on the board also include:

Maybelline Pure
L'Oreal Trumatch
Revlon Colorstay (Regular & Active light) wink.gif
Morning:
Purpose or J&J Head-to-Toe Wash
DK BP 2.5%
Olay Complete SPF 15 Sensitive Skin

Night:
J&J Head-to-Toe Wash
DK BP 2.5%
Cetaphil Lotion

you should try korres yogurt cream (http://www.sephora.c...html?id=P116805)... it's a moisturizer for oily, dehyrated skin. after a couple of days, any make-up will look a lot less flaky! also, cargo foundation works well for dehydrated skin... but if you just treat the dry skin with a good moisturizer that won't make you break out, you should be able to use most foundations without issue. good luck!

i really like Clinique's Perfectly Real foundation.
i haven't tried Superfit yet, but i've heard that one by Clinique is good too.

I read some good stuff about Chanel foundation. have any of u liked Chanel?


 

She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something...
