Best Base Products of 2013

Top base products 2013 foundation concealer powder seventeed estee lauder

If you've read any of my latest face-of-the-day type posts this line-up won't surprise you.  For the majority of this year, these three products have been applied almost daily, with the occasional mix-up.  I've talked about these so much that this will only be a short post - I won't babble on, but these are without a doubt my best base products of the last year.

Since picking up Estee Lauder Double Wear, no other foundation has been good enough - read more about it here.  My skin is oily, acne prone and has some acne scars, so this matte, medium/high coverage foundation is perfect for me.  Yes, not having a pump is a little annoying, but it doesn't put my off at all.  For covering imperfections, Seventeen Phwoarr Paint has taken over the top spot of the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (review here), although it is still a little drying for my liking - any recommendations of concealers to cover under-eye circles and blemishes are welcome! Lastly, oily skin needs a matte powder. and Seventeen Miracle Matte powder gets the job done for under a fiver - have a read of how much I love it here.  I repurchase this time and time again, I must be on close to my 20th repurchase - I've been using it for years and I still love it!

In the new year I'm planning on trying some new foundations - I'd love to hear your favourites, especially if they'd suit my oily skin!  I'm also on the lookout for a primer to suit oily skin - I'm thinking maybe Smashbox Photo finish? What are your favourite base products of the last year?

  1. I love the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation! I don't think it'll suit oily skin though, you should try the Rimmel Match Perfection!
