I'll get over you, I know I will (maybe)

Well I went into Benefit in Convent Garden today to pick up for usual quarterly supply of foundation/concealer that I have been an avid fan of for the past 3 years (I can't believe I have been faithful for that many years) and to my horror they no longer sell it!
I knew this day would come, I was dumb struck, so much so I allowed the grumpy shop assistant to attempt to cover up my right ballooning shiner of a spot with 'industrial strength concealer' and then continue to talk for ten minutes solid about said unwanted face furniture - way to make me feel good about myself woman.
She told me to stop eating cheese as well as chocolate, told me my use of waterproof mascara was likely to make my lashes fall out and rounded off her pitch by telling me if I spent 60 quid I could get some free straighteners which tend to overheat and burn you......Yet I still walked out with a bagful of new products, guilty and confused.
I did make her laugh by telling her I was off to buy myself a lump of cheese, this felt like quite the reward.
I just want to know what to do, with so many products to choose from and so much variation in price, how on earth do I decide what to pick? I can't afford to do trials and am loathe to sit at more make-up counters whilst the assistant discusses the shine content of my skin.
I found out today my friend uses 3 layers of 3 different foundations to create her dewy glow - WHO HAS THE TIME FOR THAT?
That's it, I give up - I vow to go naked skinned, think of the cash I'll save!

Foundation - I'll get over you, I know I will.
