It could be ingredients from the paint or just from a buildup of smoke or dust. The first thing I would do is install an exhaust fan to deal with the condensation. Then clean the ceiling and walls and see if that solves the problem.
Unless your ceiling is brown or the water coming out of the shower head is brown, I'm going to guess you've got a leaky roof and the brown oily film is tar from the shingles seeping in over a Kilz-type paint.
If you think this is wrong, please take pictures so we can maybe identify it better. Part of your makeover should include an exhaust fan venting outside through the ceiling or wall.
Thanks for asking Hometalk!
