I find that no matter the foundation, wearing sunscreen (chemical, at the present LRP) makes the foundation darken/oxidize, although the colour is a good match to start with.

I've heard this might be a problem for oily skin, but mine is dry? Will switching to a physical SS diminish the problem? It's slowly starting to get on my nerves. Sad

What foundation are you using? So the foundation is OK without sunscreen?

I had this problem for years! I tried all sorts of liquid foundations and liquid tinted moisturizers. I did try mineral makeup and it continued with Every Day Mineral makeup. (Overrated as a mineral makeup IMO.)Very frustrating to start the day out with glowy skin that looks natural and slowly look orangey at the end of the day. I tried blotting and finishing powders also with the liquid foundation but still would oxide.

But I can use various sunscreen moisturizers (Olay, LRP, Neostrata Cliniderm = physical filters only) and I am OK with my current MMU. Everyday MMU will oxide but Lucy, Joppa, Beautiful Girl, Lumiere, etc. are OK with me. I am still just as oily. I always wear a sunscreen product. I have been wearing MMU for about five years.

I find it happens with all MMU I've tried, with the possible exception of Glominerals pressed. At the moment, I have MMU from EDM, Alima and BareFaced Beauty, and while they're nice enough without ss, they turn orange or darken considerably once I'm wearing ss underneath. Of liquids, I'm wearing BB Skin (good colour), MAC Studio Fix Fluid and Diorskin Nude, where the latter two actually oxidize even without ss, but I've taken that into consideration when choosing a shade.

Will a primer help? I have tried the one from Bare Escentuals (Prime Time), but is a bit undecided whether I see any difference or not. Or maybe a physical ss may help?

It's starting to get on my nerves. Sad

Have you considered that the foundation "oxidizing" might be due to your face turning redder underneath the sunscreen? Chemical sunscreens (like LRP) absorb UV rays and the energy is convered to heat so your skin tends to heat up. If you are sensitive to heat, then your facial skin would get redder and therefore the foundation would tend to look darker. If you use skincare products with irritant and redness-inducing potential (eg retin A/tretinoin or AHA/BHA), then this redness tendency is even greater.

Using a pure physical sunscreen might help to alleviate this problem as physical sunscreens reflect light away from the skin rather than absorbing the rays.

I agree with m1rox I use MMU and have tried several brands, now I use Aromaleigh or Pur Minerals my skin isn't sensitive and it's normal. I use Physical SS and my MMU stays true to the color it is when I apply it all day long. Smile

But what is a good physical filters-only sunscreen that I can possibly get hold of outside of US and Canada? And which can be used under makeup?
