When it comes to foundation, we might all differ in what we may consider to be our “holy grail”, due to having different skin types, colours, concerns, and foundation-finish preferences. That being said, one thing pretty much everyone can agree on in terms of the foundation is we all want it to look as much like skin as possible. Bonus points if it’s affordable. The drugstore has plenty of foundations that do the trick just as well as some high-end foundations. If you’re unsure where to start, we’ve done the research for you!
Dare we say if the price wasn’t even an aspect, you may even prefer a foundation from this list as opposed to shopping high-end anyway…
These drugstore foundations are general crowd-pleasers and are a great place to start if you’re looking for a good foundation at a fair price point.
L’Oreal Paris True Match Nude Hyaluronic Tinted Serum
Although it may be labeled as a tinted serum, it covers like a foundation! L’Oreal’s True Match Hyaluronic Tinted Serum provides a luminous finish that looks just like skin. So, if you get your perfect match, no one should even be able to detect that you’re even wearing makeup! Its 1% Hyaluronic acid works to hydrate and smooth the skin – who doesn’t love a little skin care in their makeup?
Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus Foundation Dewy
This weightless foundation provides a skin-like finish and provides buildable medium to full coverage. We love this foundation not only for the price but because it is just a no-fuss well-performing foundation! If you’re on the normal to dry skin side, we think you’ll love the Dewy finish, but if your skin runs more oily, its Matte finish just might be perfect for you!
Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation
If you’re looking for a full-coverage foundation, Milani has you covered with its Conceal + Perfect 2-in1 Foundation! This foundation has a thick, creamy finish, yet it doesn’t appear cakey. As said in its name, you can even skip the concealer with this one!
L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation
This well-loved foundation for its buildable, natural-skin finish has been re-formulated to be even better! It is now infused with moisturizing properties and Hyaluronic Acid, a pump applicator has even been added, too! That means no more banging of the foundation bottle on the back of your hand! Couldn’t find your right shade before? It is now formulated for up to 6 pigments to hopefully better match most skin tones.
Maybelline New York – Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation
An oldie but a goodie. Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation has been a tried and true drugstore foundation favourite. Even as new foundations continue to pop up with new and advanced formulas, this one remains to stay a strong crowd favourite. It’s great for those with oily skin, leaving a matte and flawless finish – instantly blurring pores and hiding blemishes, all while looking seamless.
