8 Best Makeup Products for Oily Acne Prone Skin in India


Top 8: Best Makeup for Oily Acne Prone Skin Available in India with Reviews and Prices

By Contributor: Uzma

I Wake up for Make up! But all Swag will fall into pieces if your perfectly done make up turns into a blotchy-oil-dripping-scary-face as you reach your destination. Oh, I am sorry; I just wrote my autobiography there. If you find it familiar then here are some of the best tried and tested products for acne prone oily skin which are available in India one each from a high end and drug store brand. Acne prone skin should always be very careful about ingredients in the makeup, as their skin is already sensitive. Cosmetics which have terms like ‘Dermatologist tested’ and ‘Ophthalmologist tested’ are made for oily skin. The wrong makeup will cause acne and break outs.

Heavy makeup is a big no-no. Make up should be water based. Why don’t you take some tips from my privately researched piece of wondrous make up? Always pay attention to the ingredients. And better if you read the reviews on VNA before buying anything!

List of Best Makeup Products for Acne Prone Sensitive Oily Skin:


Let’s start the list with primers. Primers do multiple jobs for a perfect skin. It smoothes the skin, deep moisturizes it and at the same time controls oil to make the look shine free. Let’s have a look at India’s best makeup primers which do not harm oily skin:

Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer:


It is a perfect mate for people with oily/acne prone skin. It doesn’t settles into fine lines and keeps skin oil free for good 6 hours. Price in India: Rs.1100

Mac Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage:


It claims to soothe and refresh skin. It makes the skin hydrating. Not only the makeup looks better after its usage, it also controls the acne with no further break out. Price in India: around Rs.2500


Foundations are usually heavy in nature so make sure you use one which is water based and ophthalmologist tested. It would be better to go without foundation ( a little concealer on problem areas goes a long way). But there are days when you just can’t do without your foundation. For those days I’m listing these foundations:

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation for Oily Skin:


This product is available for both skin type: combination/oily and normal/ dry. It does not break out by any chance. It is oil based and comes in a wide range of shades. Grab it when you can. It’s a great drug store option. Price in India: Rs.850

Clinique Superbalanced Makeup:


As the name suggests it balances the skin. It’s an oil free product which adds moisture and reduces oil where needed. It’s non acnegenic and doesn’t break out whatsoever. One of the best makeup products ever for acne prone sensitive skin. Rush guys rush!! Price in India: around Rs.2500


Concealors are our best friends. They understand our pain of inverted smoky eyes (Don’t go trying it out; it is also known as Dark Circles). They take care of our unwanted zits which appear Only on the most Important occasions of my life. FML!! I’m listing two of my best friends one each from Drug store and High end brand.

Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer:


A budget friendly concealer which doesn’t crease on oily skin. Raise your hands if you were looking for this all your life. It gives medium coverage which is buildable. It feels very light and gives a seamless look. Price in India: Rs.500

Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit:


It’s the Bobbi Brown bestselling product. A unique concealer which comes with a pressed powder itself. The best part is all the shades available in this product are yellow based. So, a concealer made for only us oily acne prone girls.


I’m cursed with oily skin which is sensitive. Don’t even try giving me lecture about ‘boons’ of oily skin. I hate everyone a little more in summers, including my skin. So, my another best friend is a Compact. No matter how many matte products I use, Compact application is a must for me whatsoever.

Maybelline Dream Matte Pressed Powder:


A lovely pocket friendly face powder, which not only gives an oil free look but also gives an air-soft matte smoothness to the skin. It basically means that you don’t get that white ghost effect neither it cakes on your skin and makes it edible. Lol. I’m hilarious. Wear, without fear! Price in India: around Rs.400

Mac Select Sheer Pressed Powder:


It mattifies the skin without making it look dry. Wondering how is that possible? Everything is possible when it’s MAC. After using it you can still see the natural glow there, while it absorbs all the oil. I’m eyeing this entity of incalculable worth. Price in India: around Rs.2500

So these are some of the best makeup products in India which you should try if you have sensitive acne prone skin..the curse for all oily skin girls. Let me know if you want one such list for dry sensitive skin too.
