My derm was totally against makeup of any kind for acne, and I know why. See this oil free stuff is a bunch of bull cause the FDA can approve something as oil free or non comedagenic if 70% of it's ingredients is ok. So that 30% can really mess you up. He over the past year looked at 400 foundations and made up this list of ok foundations. Sad but out of the 400 that claimed to be oil free this is the only that came up. I bought all of them to see what they are like and will tell you what I thought.

True Matte Powder-I thought it was ok definately control shine but my skin flakes from meds so probably not a good thing for some people. Not my favorite but definately good
Advanced Concealer-WOW a concelear ok for acne, will dab it all over my face now

Estee Lauder-
Double Matte Oil Control and Foundation- LOVE THIS STUFF COVERS GREAT!!! Just make sure you are moisturized though

Shine Free Pressed Powder- Not great coverage but helps with oil, which I don't need my skin is not oily. A good thing to try if you have oily skin.

Skin clearing foundation, powder and compact foundation- Powder it's ok but afraid to use it cause it does have BHA .5% in it. Does dry out skin but for some that can be ok. Compact foundation is ok but don't like the coverage. For the price it's ok.

Cover girl-
Fresh look foundation-Don't like the coverage seems to make my zits more noticable by looking too cacky and dry. Redness is still there. Go figure.

New Complexion oil Free and Powder Foundation- HUH is there any makeup on my face, Sorry does NOT COVER. Probably good if you DON"T HAVE Zits to cover and none of here have that so this stuff sucks.

Skin Stays clean foundation- Best of what is in the drugstore. Ok but not great coverage
Pore Minimizing Compact- Again best in a drugstore. Better coverage I think then foundation that is above
Clear Complexion Foundation/Powder Compact- Best natural coverage of any of them I think. Nice to have it be a foundation/powder. For drugstore stuff this is good.

Oil of Olay-
Shine Control Foundation- Ok I guess not great. Not horrible.

Maquicontrol Foundation- THIS STUFF ROCKS. Good coverage. Wish it was more moisturizing.
Photgenic Pressed and Loose- LOVE THE PRESSED, loose is good too.

Magic, Liquid Powder- Get the one that gets rid of red. This is the BEST loose Powder for acne. Cuts back the redness.

Jane Iredale-
Amazing Base. This is a mineral makeup that works really good for oily skin. Looks like cr#$ if you have dry skin from acne meds but BEAUTIFUL on oily. Covers so nice my fiance' used it and he looked like no makeup was on his face and he was covering a rash. Zinc is one of the main ingredients and is good for acne. Just looks dry on me.
Mineral makeup is the best to use when you have acne - look for Jane Iredale or Amoraleigh products - do a web search. They're very good.

[b]what about MAC studio fix?[/b][/quote]

M.A.C. studio Fix is the best besides Neutrogena skin clearing makeup. I on't have a whole bunch of acne zits so all I need is a little coverage for a flawless finish. I use my Neutrogena makeup daily & I use MAC on special occasions because it's pretyy expensive (for me).
