Can makeup labelled oil free, non comedogenic and hypoallergenic still cause cystic acne? Have a history of acne, afraid to put anything new on face.

In brief: Yes

You still may want to use make-up though and these products are a good place to start.
One might try starting with a very small amount as a trial period. Consult your physician as knowledge of your past experience may help guide product selection.

In brief: Less likely

These makeups are your best choice to decrease your risk of acne as reaction to the makeup.
