I confess. I hoard base products. I have used up several this year but I know I cannot buy any more for a very long time. I think I’m going to have to start a one in, one out policy. Currently I have 7 open and 2 sealed waiting to be used. I will open one of the new ones when one of the old ones is used up. Currently in rotation we have:
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in intensity 1. I adore this. The colour match is perfect and it lasts fantastically well. The coverage is pretty light though.
Revlon Colorstay in 110 Ivory. This is a heavy duty foundation that lasts well. At the moment I’m mixing it with the darker tinted moisturisers as it is a touch pale for me at the moment.
Hissy Fit Saving Face Foundation with SPF in shade light. This is way too dark for me even in the height of summer. I only ever use it to mix with other foundations. It’s more of a tinted moisturiser than a foundation to be honest.
Stila Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser in the shade Medium. This came in a pack from TK MAXX so I didn’t have any choice about the shade. Again it is too dark but it works fantastically when mixed with Revlon Colorstay.
Dior Forever Extreme Wear in shade 010. A fabulous colour match and lasts well on the skin although not quite as well as the Estee Lauder. This is probably because it is slightly heavier coverage so wear is more noticeable.
Bare Minerals Matte in Fair C10. I won’t say too much on this as there is a review coming up soon. I like it a lot but I don’t love it as I thought I would.
Sleek Oil Free Crème to Powder in Shell 495. I hate this. It is difficult to apply, goes patchy on my oily bits, is very yellow. Yuck. I will finish it though! I tend to wear it on the weekend when I don’t need my makeup to last all day.
And finally I have the Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation in shade 15 Opal and the Witch Anti Blemish tinted moisturiser in shade 01 Light waiting in the wings. I can’t wait to try them but I’m keeping the sealed for now! X
