I went through all the make up threads the other day since I was looking for a good concealer and foundation to replace my Urban Decay. I narrowed my list down by looking at all the ingredients and finally went and bought Almay Smart Shade concealer and Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF 30. I've been using both for a week now without any new breakouts! YAY! I was a little nervous to go with a powder foundation only because I never liked them in the past since they tend to look cakey, but this one doesnt! Thank you to the person who recommended these products!

I have Urban Decay's Naked foundation, but I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Did you notice more breakouts from it?

I used Smart Shade a few years ago, but couldn't find the right shade. 


Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)

At first I loved Urban Decay's Naked foundation, but after maybe a month of use I noticed I had lots of clogged pores. You couldn't really see them unless you looked at my skin in harsh daylight super closely, but it bothered me a lot. I didn't realize that the foundation was causing my clogged pores because I didn't notice any blemishes from it right away. I stopped using it about 10 days ago and my skin does seem to look less congested. 

I'm using light/medium for Smart Shade and I noticed it doesn't break me out, but the shade is a little weird. It matches my skin tone but seems a little gray once it dries. It would look odd if I didn't put foundation over it, but so far the Physicians Formula is great for me and masks the gray from the concealer.

Yeah, I thought so too. I read some reviews for Urban Decay and quite a few people said it broke them out. Too bad because it's free of most harsh chemicals. I'm not sure what could be irritating in the ingredients....the sephora salesgirl said it might be dimethicone, but I use another foundation with it and it doesn't break me out.

Smart Shade turned a bit gray on me too, and I think it may have clogged my pores a little. I might check out physicians formula. I tried their foundation but I couldn't find the right shade again.

Sephora Tarte BB Cream Tinted Moisturizer with Amazonian Clay is FANTASTIC and beneficial for severely acne prone skin like mine. It has a bit of a sparkle in it when you put it on as well making your skin noticeably glowy. I use Sheer Cover Mineral loose powder and concealer with the Tarte. All of these combined give great coverage that lasts all day even when I workout. I don't ever breakout with these products. Amazon clay is suppose to be healing to acne prone skin and it indeed does. It feels great in addition to looking like I came out of a facial when I wear it. Highly recommend Tarte and Sheer Cover......

My skin is extremely sensitive and acne prone. I used mac foundation and that was a huge mistake. Don't ever use that...it's way too thick and heavy. Right now I'm using Lancome Teint Miracle and it's perfect for me! It's 37% water and it's non-comedogenic and oil free.

I would suggest you go for a mineral makeup.  This will be better for your skin.  there are many high end and low ends that you can try, you just have to find the one that works best for you.  I personally love ELF.

I've been using Lorac Natural Performance (Oil-free) for about 5 years without any problems, even without a primer. It's on the matte side, which I don't necessarily like as I'm on the drier side, but it absolutely does not break me out. I'm in the market still for a dewey foundation, and will let you know if I locate one that I don't believe is causing clogged pores.

If you are using bare minerals and have cystic acne stop!!!! I have had clear skin my entire life, a year and a half ago I started getting huge cystic pimples on my chin.. Why I continued to use this make up I have no idea. I figured because I used the loose powder in high school and never broke out that couldn't be the reason. I got allergy tested, stopped eating dairy gluten etc, went to 3 derms, did everything. Then finally I realized the only thing that I started doing differently when I started breaking out was using the bare minerals (not the loose powder the full coverage compact although I don't think it matters) since I stopped using it I have gotten zero cystic pimples!!! Nothing!!! Skin is clear for the first time in almost two years and healing luckily with no scars just red marks that are quickly fading, I also stopped using cerave!!! I use nuetrogena ultra gentle cleanser and cetaphil foam for oily skin if I have more make up on then normal. I'm using cover girl oil free compact (it's a light/sheer formula and doesn't make me break out) seriously.. If you were suffering from cystic acne the first thing you need to do is stop using bare minerals.....

A couple of "safe" ones I have found are Priia mineral (they have a cream foundation), and Make Up Forever Face & Liquid Makeup (the other ones by Make Up Forever have pore clogging ingredients.
