I bought the urban decay all nighter foundation in the shade 4.0 and it matches my skin very well. However, I noticed it getting darker and darker throughout the day to the point that a lot of people were saying I looked like an Oompa Loompa! I've tried drowning my face in setting spray, using a silicone based primer, putting on tonnes of powder and nothing seems to work. If you guys have any unique methods of preventing oxidisation please please please let me know!!

Something in the formula of that foundation makes it oxidize so it's not your skin (which would usually be the culprit), it's the foundation itself so using a shade lighter will work better so when it does oxidize it'll be the right color.

There is nothing you can do to prevent it just return for a few shades later.

It's not your skin itself, it's not the foundation itself, it's both, there's a reaction of the oils and pigments with your skin's natural oils and acidity level. Try changing your skincare to oil-free formulas, if it's still oxidizing change your foundation, look for oil-free foundations (the fewer the oils there will be less chances of a reaction).
