    The best way to get the juvias place out without squeezing too much is to just squirt the tiniest bit on your pointer finger and then use your finger to dot it all over your face..I usually only need one to two pea size amount to do my whole face…. I love that foundation.

    I’m also very oily and live in Texas. Some of my favorite foundations (no particular order):
    1. NYX can’t stop, won’t stop
    2.Dior face and body
    3. Becca ever matte
    4. Tarte face tape
    5. Smith and cult
    6. Kat von d
    7. Uoma beauty
    8. Fenty Beauty
    I really like Juvia’s place, Jouer cosmetics and coverfx powerplay but I don’t have a perfect match. I own at least 30 foundations, I’m a makeup hoarder.

    I have about 15- 20 foundations in my stash. I honestly stopped counting. From Uoma beauty being the newest to Bobby Brown bring oldest. I have Clinique, Too Faced Born this way, Mac several products(skin finishes, studio fix, and master** from mac, Black Radiance, Black Opal, Revlon, Maybelline Poreless, Loreal 24 hr, Lancome Tient de idole, Lancome skin tint, Laura Gellar filter first, Nyx total drops, bare minerals in deep dark and golden dark and too many more to name. My best is Mac Studio Fix Powder for the Summer in NW 45 perfect match and Uoma Beauty in the winter, I have T2N brown sugar.

That lesson on the Cover FX drops GIIIIRRRRLLL, I didn't even know. Thank you Dr.

  6. Tawanada Grant says:

    Thanks for this list. My favorites for the summer are Dior Backstage Face and Body, Fenty, Estee Lauder Double Wear Clinique Stay Matte and Maybelline Fit Me matte and poreless. I have super oily skin as love these for the Summer months

  7. janeal 85 says:

    Currently, I only have 2: Nars Natural Radiant & Bobbi Brown with SPF. I like them both, both are smooth to me. I have a sample of the CoverFx power play foundation. It may be my next purchase.

  8. MsMommysGal says:

    im surprised that fenty foundation made the list…that foundations turns so red and is oily on me lol my fave right now is juvia's place! oh and dior face and body is something i wear when i want to look heavenly, another foundation i wouldn't necessarily recommend for oily skin but it works in cooler weather. great video, Danielle!!

  9. ShadaGreen says:

    I’ll attempt to rank my foundations
    Hue Noir
    ColourPop liquid foundation
    MAC Studio Fix
    Revolution Conceal & Define
    Estée Lauder Double Wear
    Fenty (would be higher but I don’t have a match yet)
    Range Beauty (would be higher but I have to mix shades)
    Juvia’s Place (would be higher but I’m not sure I have a match, plus the owner’s recent behavior on Twitter is kind of problematic)
    Nyx Can’t Stop Won’t Stop (would be higher but I have to mix shades)

    That’s just how I’m feeling currently. Those are my top 10 – but their ranking amongst themselves could probably be different tomorrow (or even later today!)

    I also have others in my rotation that are good but I don’t really know how I’d rank them (LA colors liquid foundation, RCMA Color Process foundation, Black Radiance studio perfect liquid foundation, Kleancolor Pigment Boss).

    As many as I’ve mentioned, I probably have just as many that I haven’t mentioned, that I keep around but I’m not really pleased with.

    I have a problem. 🤦🏾‍♀️

  10. Tywan Brown says:

    Hey Danielle!!! Ok so I think I have about 14 Foundations in my collection now (give or take) because I did declutter and finish like 2. I have dry skin BUT I typically like natural finish and semi/soft matte Foundations; mostly medium to full coverage. In the summer I luv my Bare Minerals Bare Pro liquid foundation, Maybelline matte&poreless. This summer (off and on) I’ve been using the Covergirl trueblend matte made foundation; and it’s ok for everyday but not like a fav.

  11. Krys_tal says:

    Just tried a sample of the power play foundation and I'm really feelin it. I have 10 foundations total and sometimes forget I have them. Really love my smashbox hydrating foundation for the winter and my lancome teint idole for the summer. Lancome is definitly my #1, then smashbox, JP and then the rest are sort of scattered because I seriously rarely use them. I had the nerve a few days ago to pick up some new foundations, smh. Those include PUR and tarte.

  12. Stephanie Gordon says:

    Love these types of videos. I plan on picking up the Dior face and body foundation. I have about 10 foundations right now. Love them all for different purposes and seasons. If I had to ranked them from best( or most used) to the least it’ll be. Mac studio fix, Fenty, Estée Lauder Double Wear, Nars Natural Radiant, L’Oréal Infallible, Smashbox Studio skin stick, Juvia’s Place, Becca Ultimate Coverage, Hourglass Vanish Stick(Not the tight color so I hardly wear it. Wish I had returned it.) and Tarte Face Tape(This is last because it’s brand new and I have not worn it as yet.)

  13. bunnyblue93 says:

    I have been using Fenty since it came out. Now I switched over to the Juvia’s Place foundation since I get get extremely oily in the summer time. I’m also interested in getting the Uoma beauty foundation since my friends rave about it all the time.

  14. erika reid says:

    I need to increase my foundation collection. I was a MAC queen now I am using Fenty. I like Fenty, but I want to try something a little bit more full coverage. I heard great things about Dior and I think I am going to purchase soon. What do you suggest for oily skin when I am heading to Disney and will be in the hot sun all day. Lol

  15. Ashley Craver says:

    I have become a foundation junkie. I have about ten in rotation right now. My favorite at the moment is the Uoma beauty. It has such a beautiful finish and staying power (I am oily and sweat on my nose for no reason). I have also been loving the foundation from Jouer. It is extremely matte and perfect for this hot Alabama weather.
