The Best Drugstore Foundations That You’ll Love

If you're looking for the perfect drugstore foundation, then look no further! Here are The Best Drugstore Foundations That You’ll Love!

While drugstore foundations have had a bad reputation in the past, owing to their limited colour selections, orange toned shade ranges and lack of endurance and coverage. Drugstore foundations have really climbed the cosmetic ranks in the last few years, after having been improved, reformulated and expanded. Today, they have become legitimate competitors for high-end foundations, with many choosing to purchase drugstore foundations over department store foundations. Here are the best drugstore foundations that you’ll love!

1) Loreal True Match Liquid Foundation

This foundation has a beautiful, runny texture that is typical of light to medium coverage, while having the coverage of a medium to full coverage finish, depending on how it is applied and built up. The product is marketed as a ‘velvety formula’ that is ‘flawless, blendable and never fake.’ While this foundation does offer a good amount of coverage, it allows the skin to look like skin. It also comes in a whopping 28 shades and a variety of undertones, which is near enough unheard of for a drugstore foundation. This foundation also features a short list of ingredients, so it is less likely to contain unnecessary nasties. The ingredients also includes kind to skin vitamin E and aloe vera. At £9.99 per bottle, this gem of a foundation is a real bargain!
