There have been about 1000 foundation releases in the last month. 90% of them, are high end. So, not only is it extremely overwhelming, but it’s also expensive. And I don’t know about you but I can’t justify spending $50+ on foundations.
Thankfully, that’s where the drugstore swoops in and saves the day.
There are endless foundation choices at the drugstore nowadays. And while it can be tricky to find the ones that are worth buying, it’s extremely satisfying (for you and your wallet) once you do. All you have to do is know what you’re looking for.
That’s why I’ve created this extremely easy guide to find your perfect drugstore foundation and save some money.
Check it out!
For Natural, Protected Skin:
Maybelline Dream Urban Cover Foundation
I’ve talked about this foundation before, but it deserves to be mentioned again. If you’re looking for something that gives you a natural finish and also has great benefits for your skin, try the Dream Urban Cover.
This foundation not only evens out your skin, but it also protects it against the sun and pollution. It doesn’t look heavy on the skin and despite being a natural finish, it has pretty great coverage.
This foundation works great on all skin types because of its satin finish. Whether you’re super dry or oily, the Dream Urban Cover will not disappoint.
For Oily Skin:
Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation
This foundation has been a favorite in the beauty community for a while now. Especially for people with oily skin.
This foundation is medium to full coverage and it is extremely long-lasting. It’s a matte finish so it keeps the oils at bay and it’s sweat resistant. Despite being matte it doesn’t look caked on the skin. On the contrary, it smooths the skin, leaving it looking flawless.
For Dry Skin:
Maybelline Fit Me Dew + Smooth Foundation
If you have dry skin, chances are you’ve heard about this foundation before. Everyone with dry skin raves about it. So I had to include it!
This foundation is medium coverage but you can definitely build it up. The finish is super dewy so it is guaranteed to hydrate the skin. It’s also very smoothing so if you have large pores or dry patches on your skin, this foundation will hide them.
Since this is a dewy foundation it won’t dry as satin or matte foundation do. So keep that in mind.
For Full Glam… Or Not:
L’Oréal Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation
This is one of the greatest foundations to ever exist. Mark my words when I say I’ve never tried another foundation that has made my skin look as good as this one does. This is the only foundation I’ve tried that makes my skin look like skin, no matter how much I apply.
This foundation is perfect for every occasion. If you’re looking for something to wear daily, this is natural enough. And if you’re looking for something glam, you can build it up to high coverage.
The finish of this is satin so people with dry all the way to oily skin can enjoy it. As I already mentioned, this foundation is medium/buildable coverage. It’s also very long-lasting and it wears amazingly throughout the day.
If you only get one product from this post, it has to be this Infallible Fresh Wear foundation for sure!
And that’s a roundup of my drugstore foundation guide. I tried to make it as simple as possible so that this didn’t become overwhelming. I hope it was helpful.
If you have any other drugstore foundation that should be a part of this guide, please do share!
