I straddle between two concealers: Prescriptives and MAC
I also use Clinique T Zone Matte on my most oily area on my face, my nose
Then I follow up with MAC Blot Powder

I work as a freelance makeup artist for 3 different lines as a side hustle and am a make up junkie.  So if it's a foundation for cocoa skinned women, I've probably tried it before.
 
Priming my partially oily, acne prone skin has been the most effective way to prepare it for any oil free nonacnegenic makeup I use.  Exfoliation, treatments, serums, appropriate day & nighttime moisturizers and masks make a HUGE difference in the look and feel of my skin, as well as how foundation looks on it.  That said, I use MAC Studio Fix, Studio Tech, Studio Fix Fluid, Studio Stick, Blot Loose and Pressed Powders as my primary foundations. Their foundations have a silica ingredient that really reflects light well and softens the way my skin looks, thus hiding dark marks from acne.  Definitely the best I've ever used and match more skin tones of color.  Let me also say, I do not work for MAC.
 
 I tried HIP but wasn't too happy.  Still have it so might try again.  I believe Bare Minerals made my skin itch and break out but I might try it again.  Philosophy Supernatural is a great concept but the color isn't quite a match for my skin in the summer.   I plan to try Iman Second to None Luminous Stick Foundation.

I use Peter Thomas Roth Max Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel...you can use it under any foundation or alone...it helps control the oil...recently I bought Per-fekt foundation and primer in one...it feel nice and it is not greasy...it also has a lot of anti-oxidents...so it is good for your skin...

SmileI ONLY USE IMAN FOUNDATION, PRESSED POWDER, BUT I FELL IN LOVE WITH HER LUMINIOUS FOUNDATION YOU CAN WEAR IT WET OR DRY,  I STILL GET A GOOD COVERAGE EITHER WAY.  YOU CAN GET HER MAKEUP AT SOME WALGREENS AND WAL-MART.  I DO HAVE HER OIL-CONTROL SERUM THA'TS PRETTY GOOD TOO.
 
I MAY CHECK OUT  MAC, I HEAR SO MUCH ABOUT IT.

I've tried Bare Minerals and I did notice I had fewer breakouts while using it. However, my skin is warmer in tone, and the powders were too dull looking for my skin. I switched to Amazing Cosmetics and I like it alot.  It has hints of gold in it. Not just a flat color.

mac studio fix and powder have been the most effective, although I have not tried too many brands so there could be better. But I don't get a blatent shine and my face looks fresh and smooth when I wear it. I get a lot of compliments.

whatever u do, stay away from black opal. it works for some, but for me, my skin has never looked more oily than after a few hours of wearing their foundation.

Foundation on my skin looks messy, I have uneven tone on my face. They always give me a darker tone because of that but I end up not being able to use cos I look funny with it.
