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. 

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.
