Hey everyone, I need some suggestions for a new foundation. I've tried drugstore brands like covergirl and Revlon, they're cheap but I think I'm now willing to spend a little more bucks. I have combination skin, more on the oily side, and I'm looking for a full coverage makeup. I have large pores and a lot of scarring and also active acne. I've been looking at Clinique, smashbox, lancome, makeup forever, and Almay. I've heard a lot of people using almay. I need some suggestions on a foundation and not a concealer! If anyone can help, thanks!

The highest coverage foundations I know of are
Kat Von D Lock-it
Estee Lauder Double Wear
If you youtube demos for them you can get a look at how pigmented they are, they are foundations but theyre high coverage enough to be used as a concealer. For the Vichy/Estee foundations I know you can go to the counters and get 10 day samples

I currently use Almay because it doesn't seem to cause me to break out, but I would rate it as a light to medium coverage at best.
As XXYY above has listed as high coverage, I've used Estee Lauder doublewear in the past and boy does that stuff cover up everything. I did find it hard to remove in the evening though. Cleanser by itself didnt get it all off - I had to cleanse and then use a makeup remover wipe to get the last bit off.

Foundations that have the most pigment are Dermablend and CoverFX.

Expensive doesn't always mean better. I paid $70 for a tube of Clinique liquid foundation for acne and it turned really orange on my skin and it never fully dried on my skin. By the end of the day I was so wet and oily, it was very unappealing. I never had the courage to spend that much on foundation again and I also feel that Australia really lacks variety in acne safe foundations.
