Top 5 Drugstore Foundations

I am such a huge drugstore makeup fan and today I am sharing my top 5 Favourite drugstore foundations with you! Just for you to be aware, I have normal to dry skin, depending on the weather, and have found these foundations to be perfect for my skin type. If you have oily/combination skin, I would recommend that you look at reviews from other beauty bloggers to get the best understanding of how they work for you. Also, be aware that some products will work well for me but may not work well for you even though we have the skin type.


Please follow my Instagram to see all my makeup videos and pictures.




I will begin by talking about my OG. The Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless, available in Superdrug, Boots, and other online retailers. This fabulous foundation will only set you back £6.99. This is such a stunning day to day foundation that doesn't feel heavy or cakey on the skin. I find that it doesn't cling to any dry patches and it works well in not settling in fine lines but only after you powder. I use the shade 220, (you can find a full list of my foundation shades on my blog now!)


Next, we have a more recent favourite from L'oreal. The Infallible Fresh Wear foundation is a stunningly beautiful lightweight foundation (as the name suggests) that adds enough coverage to make your complexion look even. For only £10.99, this is definitely a foundation that I will be repurchasing in the future. I use shade 150 Radiant Beige.


Another favourite drugstore foundation is the Revolution Fast Base stick foundation for only £5. This is a product that is great for if you're in a rush or you don't have the time to do a lot. It blends so easily and looks so flawless afterward. I have actually run out of mine now as it was a day to day foundation I used constantly, especially on days I was feeling lazy. I am definitely going to be repurchasing this foundation however I've decided to hold off on it as I have other foundations that I haven't given a fair shot to. I use shade F10, which I use in any of their foundations that I've tried out so far.


If you're looking for a full coverage foundation then NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop foundation may be the one for you. I absolutely love this foundation and think it's very comparable to the Huda beauty foundation, based on just the coverage alone. It's a little more than your average foundation prices but for £15, it's a very good foundation worth trying. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any product out of this pump. It's clogged up and won't come out, please let me know if it's ever happened to you and how I can fix it. I use the shade Medium Olive.


Another full coverage foundation worth checking out is the Maybelline Super Stay Foundation. When this first released, I was obsessed almost to the point where I wasn't sure if I liked my Fit me foundation however to compare these two, would be wrong as they are very different coverages. I love this foundation for an evening look but again, I wear it during the daytime as well. It definitely is long-lasting but I can't say that it does last 24hr as it claims as I've only worn it for about 8-9 hours max and for me, it has done a good job of not looking worn off. I use the shade 51 Caramel Beige.

So here you have it, my top 5 drugstore foundations that I am loving at the moment. Comment down below your favourites.
