Sorry, I disappeared for over a year because I joined Facebook (can we say time drain?). I have a new account and user name here, but it's still me, Sarah F. Those of you who knew me in the old days know that I have a love-hate relationship with makeup. I have rosacea and sensitive skin and eyes. I also hate the feeling of heavy or greasy makeup. I go through long phases of not using any makeup. I've experimented with mineral and powder foundations, but find that 1) they seem almost as likely to cause irritation as liquid foundations because they can be drying, and 2) I can't get the look or staying power I really want with them. So I'm in another experimentation phase.
I am looking for a lightweight liquid foundation that doesn't feel heavy or greasy, has a matte or semi-matte finish (but a little natural light reflection is okay as long as the product will do for combo skin), wears reasonably well for combination skin, and is suitable for sensitive skin/rosacea (no or minimal sunscreen ingredients preferred--I use my own mineral sunscreen underneath). Drugstore or department store brand is okay. Any suggestions? So far, two contenders (but I have to see how my skin likes them over time) are cover girl trublend and MAC matchmaster.
