Have you tried any mineral foundations? They go on like a powder, but their coverage is equivalent to a liquid.

Have you tried a primer? They're supposed to make make up last much longer. A popular one is by Smashbox, or if you dont want to waste a crapload of money on that, alot of people say Monistat anti chaffin gel works just as good, if not better. And yes, its the crotch cream. You can view the thread here :D

Just about any makeup will slide of my oily skin unless I set it with pressed powder.

I am using Almay Smart Shade foundation, it's oil-free and hasn't created any problems for me, and I top it off with CoverGirl Fresh Look pressed powder. This usually keeps the shine at a manageable level.

I am a minerals convert. In any case, primer helps with pores and helping your make up go on smoother, but it also gives your make up something to hold onto so it lasts a bit longer. Brandy mentioned a pressed powder - it is a must, then again, loose powder is a good idea as well. Dust on loose powder in the morning, touch up with pressed during the day. Or you can use pressed powder alone, whichever you prefer.

Smashbox primer was mentioned which I love, but I use Monistat which is comparable to that primer. I know a bunch of people use aloe vera...fruit of the earth or something like that?

Maybe a lighter moisturizer would help?
