I stopped taking the pill and decided to not take birth control. So my experience is a little different than yours. My face got oilier, but with time it returned normal. To my understanding your body gets really out of whack if you change/stop taking birth control. I'm not sure how long ago you switched, but that could be the culprit. If you have any concerns about it, I would talk with your gyno. As for controlling oil, I wash my face two times a day (night/morning) with a gel cleanser, then I use sea breeze astringent ( the yellow one), then clean and clear facial lotion with sacylic acid in it (its in a white bottle with a purple lid).
For makeup. I like mac studio fix foundation-both powder and liquid.
