Best full coverage drugstre foundation

Recommended Posts

I have been using dream liquid mousse foundation by Maybelline new York and lets just say this foundation SUCKS!! it doesn't cover my face at all it just looks weird and shows my pores. I really want a good full coverage foundation that looks natural because I have really patchy rosey cheeks and I need great coverage for that. However, I'm afraid that what I am looking for doesn't exist in the drugstore world. I have very dry skin so I was thinking maybe using tinted moisturizer but I need foundation.. Any suggestions? I want to spend under $15 if possible. if I need to spend more I can but that's hwy its a drugstore brand because they tend to be cheaeper

I know you are asking about drug store foundation. But in all honestly if you would try Limelight you would be amazed by the coverage! It is amazing. It's for all skin types and is 50% pigmented while other foundations are anywhere from 10% to 18% pigmented. It covers your face so well.

Hello, I have a suggestion - this product I have used my self so it's from my experience as well.

I recommend is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, there is a serum version of this but the foundation gives more coverage imo. The foundation is medium coverage but it is buildable, I would say this foundation cater to more dry skin types. I have oily skin but if I use the "baking" method with this foundation I don't really get oily during the day. I do get some dry patches and this foundation doesn't emphasise that as well as pores or any textures.

The foundation goes on smoothly as well i like using a beauty blender but you can use a brush for more coverage, I would say this also gives a natural finish. I would say the only downside to this is the colour range as there is not a lot of selection to choose from. 

This foundation is roughly £10 so about $14 I think?

The best drugstore foundation I have found is the Rimmel London 25hr lasting finish foundation, it's coverage is medium but it lasts really well and does not look cakey. I would suggest giving it a go, it's my favourite drugstore foundation by far - I tend to use high end foundations.

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!       
    • I think Makeup brushes are a base for makeup, especially for this set of makeup brushes, highly recommended.
