I also have an oily t-zone on my face so I like to try using various foundations and primers to see what works. Have you tried a makeup primer? Those are usually silicone based liquids that you put on your face before you put on foundation. They come in all price points so you should be able to find one at a drug store or discount store.
In addition, you may want to use a powder on top of your foundation where your skin is the oiliest to matte your skin there and to help prevent oil breakthrough. Primers can also help your blushes, bronzers, and shadows last longer throughout the day too.
Another tip is to use oil blotting tissues to absorb unwanted shine; those you can find at the drug store too.
