Going through my foundations, I decided to do a quick post about my current drugstore foundations. Foundation is a must in my make-up routine and finding an affordable foundation is definitely important. I have found that drugstore products can sometimes be just as good as high end, especially for foundations.
I have several foundations and like to mix up which ones I use whether it be my skin is not looking its best and I need more coverage or I have a little more color than I usually do. I truly believe that having the perfect base can make you feel better about yourself throughout the day. Continue reading to find out what I think about four different drugstore foundations that are currently in my collection!
Revlon Colorstay Makeup for Oily/Combination skin ($11.99) - Matte finish. This is a HEAVY duty foundation with a matte like finish. This foundation definitely covers my redness and blemishes with ease! To be honest, I don't like to use this often since I really think that it has a heavy feeling to it and it is noticeable that I am wearing foundation. I like to save this for when I know that my skin has no chance of looking flawless for a long time since this foundation is extremely long lasting. It was a favorite of mine until I discovered another foundation (continue reading to find out which one it is ;) ) Overall, I know lots of people who adore this foundation but it isn't the perfect one for me. I will rebuy in a darker color when this one runs out (I finished my last one but I purchased the wrong color this time around, DOH!)
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation ($7.99) - Dewy finish. This is a light foundation with nice coverage. I notice when applying swatches that this foundation is a lot more "runny" than the other foundations and took a much longer time to dry. I have oily skin so this does not last as long as some of my other foundations, but I usually don't wear a light foundation if I am going to be gone for a long time without being able to redo or touch up my makeup. It has nice pigmentation and is easy to blend into the skin.
L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup ($8.99) - Small hint of shine. This foundation is a fan favorite and a favorite of mine. It blends on so nicely and has great pigmentation. It never feels like I am wearing makeup when I wear this foundation and I never feel like I need to reapply hours after I put it on. If you are looking for a nice, light, easy to apply, awesome coverage foundation then this is the one for you.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin ($11.99) - Dewy finish. My favorite!! I just love the way my skin looks after I apply this foundation. I always feel like I have perfect skin after I apply this foundation. It covers my redness and blemishes but doesn't make my skin look like I am wearing makeup, which I love. With a brush I blend this into my skin and set with a powder and BLAM! perfect skin. Love it!
