With priming, baking and setting spray (all members of our common makeup vocabulary), it is painful that our makeup still won’t last all day. Especially when you’re not actually doing anything but eating and binging Netflix. But this list of the best drugstore foundation that can actually do the job is here to save the day, and your dollar.
1) Revlon ColorStay Foundation, £12.99
When Revlon says this foundation lasts 24 hours, they’re not lying. The mattifying foundation controls any shine/oil to be super durable. It is also available in a decent shade range, can be suited to your skin types and is easily buildable for you to get the kind of coverage you want.
2) L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Foundation, £9.99
This product can provide coverage to hide even the worst of your breakouts without looking cakey, and can even compare in its finish to some high-end brands. Most importantly, it has great wear all day due to the lack of oil in the formula.
3) MaxFactor FaceFinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1, £12.99
MaxFactor has made a foundation here that not only lasts all day but covers any skin blemishes that you want covered. The formula is thick, but crazily easy to blend out and contains primer and concealer within it if you’re looking for a quick morning routine.
4) L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Foundation, £10.99
L’Oreal’s Infallible range is best for those who struggle with oily skin. It provides full coverage, so not perfect if you prefer a dewy glow-but does last all day! Plus, you can combine it with the purpose made primer to ensure it stays.
5) Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation, £10.99
This lightweight formula literally glides onto your skin to give you the most flawless of complexions, leaving you looking healthy and radiant. We consider this product a best drugstore foundation option because it doesn’t need a touch-up for at least 11 hours.
6) Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation, £6.99
This foundation provides ridiculously full coverage, without looking cakey-and has many fans for it. A flawless complexion that looks great on Instagram and lasts for at least 7 hours before a powder touch-up is required.
7) Rimmel London Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation, £8.99
This foundation actually guarantees you a coverage that lasts all day and manages to give you a smooth, velvety complexion in the process. This item is also one of the cheaper options offered.
8) No. 7 Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation, £15
If you prefer a natural looking finish that feels ‘superlight’ on the skin, then this is the one for you. For a barely there feel, akin to BB creams, that still lasts literally all day-try this best drugstore foundation out.
9) Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick, £5
£5 guys, £5! And it works. If you have blemishes and scarring then this is the ideal foundation for you and it blends a lot easier than stick foundations usually do. Plus, you can expect it to last 7 hours between powder touch-ups.
10) Sleek Makeup CC Cream, £8.99
This is technically a cream and not a foundation, but it provides coverage akin to one and lasts for around 6 hours before powder needs topping up if you have oilier skin. This is the one to go for if you prefer a dewy, glowy finish rather than matted foundations.
