How Much Oil is in your Foundation?


If by midday your make-up has migrated down your face to reveal a shiny T-zone, it's probably a tell-tale sign you need you switch up your foundation. Oil-free, long-wear products are your best bet for a flawless complexion. But how much oil does our foundation really contain?

So many liquid foundations and face lotions claim to be oil free these days. When shopping reading the ingredients can help but you see, the real problem is that the labeling on cosmetics (makeup, hair care, skincare, etc.) is not regulated. Companies can spin all sorts of misinformation on their labels and containers. You really have to be an educated consumer in order to know what a good buy is and what isn’t.

In regards to the “oil-free” claims specifically… this is a pretty simple test @Aprilbelle83 did to check if the foundation you have in your stash is truly oil-free. This is to show the oil already in foundation and how oily they become (which isn’t totally bad depending on your skin type).

Place a pea-size dollop of the product on a sheet paper then wait. Let it sit overnight preferably, but you should start to see a change within a few hours.

 Well. There you have it
