Despite what people think, finding a good foundation from the ‘drugstore’ is not an impossible task. We have quite a few trusty foundations we constantly reach for that won’t break your bank, but this month, we’ve been hearting 3 in particular.
We had our reservations about this foundation when we read the words “matte”. As we do have skin on the dry side, we’ve always leaned towards bases that are hydrating. From the first time we used this foundation, we have been blown away. It definitely has a matte finish, but it does not cling to dry patches and accentuate them which was our biggest fear before we took the plunge. This little tube lives up to its claims, leaving our skin feeling velvet smooth, creating a nice base for you to layer other products like blusher. The foundation offers medium coverage for us, perfect for days when we want a bit more than a tinted moisturiser.
We just can’t get enough of this stuff. It was featured in our Most Reached for Bases, and it’s safe to say that this product is still one we come back to all the time. It’s comfortable, breathable and provides pretty decent coverage. Honestly, what more can you ask for?
This is another one that we can’t get enough of. In fact, our mum is a big fan and we catch her using it on a daily basis! Technically it’s a skin tint, but we’ve been showing it some extra TLC this month, so we couldn’t not include it. We wrote about our first impressions of this gem, and really, nothing has changed. We still think it is the go to for a natural, my skin but better finish. It’s glowy and light weight, ideal for the warmer weather we’re heading into.
