    I'm getting to the end of my foundation (No7, the moussy one in a round tub) and I am after trying a new one. I have a very greasy t zone, and other parts are quite dry. :wacko: Need a good coverage too.

    So, what do you use, and would you recommend it? :flower:

    Or maybe a range where you can get a make up advisor to do your make up so I could try that?

    At the minute im using Revlon Colourstay for normal/dry skin though they also do one for oily/combination skin. It has a good range of colours and stays put throughout the day though I use it sparenly as it can be quite thick. Its good coverage too.

    I would also use MAC Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation sometimes too which is more of a light to medium coverage which I also like. Its a good bit more expensive than Revlon though.

    Hope this helps :)

    Need quite a good coverage with my foundation so don't think the Mac would be right for me. Will have a look at the revlon one though, thanks :)

    estee lauder doublewear. I have combo skin and its perfect for me. Its medium buildable so you can layer it up if you want more coverage.

    I use BareMinerals, you blend and build up coverage. It stays on all day, would never be without it!
