Stuck in a foundation rut!

Hi everyone!
Once again I am sorry for the lack of posts recently but my coursework deadline is up now so hopefully I'll be updating more frequently.

Anyway, I've been using the Maybelline 24 hour Superstay Foundation for a fair while and although I do really like it, I NEED a new one as it goes patchy on my skin after a few hours and it doesn't last very long. After this picture was taken I ended up buying two more bottles so I've now repurchased it six times!
 I want to buy a better foundation and this is were I need your help :)
I'm looking for a foundation that has medium-heavy coverage and that lasts quite long, I also have oily skin so don't want one that will slip of!

In the past I've tried Maybelline dream matte mousse, dream satin liquid, Mac studio fix fluid, loreal true match, match perfection, dream creamy foundation, natural collection foundation and none of these have really stood out to me as being an amazing product!

  1. It depends how much you want to spend but for good quality you are going to have to go high end. For max coverage try Estee Lauder double wear or MAC studio fix both in the region of £25 but they will colour match you in store so at least you know you are getting the correct shade.

    1. Not all high end are good quality though, thank you for your reply but I did say that I've used MAC studio fix and didn't like it at all, I actually prefer the drugstore ones I've used to it x

  2. I got the Estee Lauder Double Wear for Christmas and I love it! Best foundation you could ever get,gives medium-full coverage but it's not cakey looking at the same time,great colour range,gives a semi-matte finish and lasts the whole day and will last you a long time,I probably still have about 70% left but I only really use it for weekends not for school :) I think it's €34? But well worth it :)


    1. Thanks for this lovely, I think double wear is at the top of my list right now as I've heard only great things about it :)xx

  3. I love this foundation, lasts all day, looks natural on me, as for suggestions I've used all the ones you've listed :P
