Every beauty lover knows that a makeup look is never complete without a final dusting of setting powder — and if you’re as obsessed with makeup as we are, you also know that some of those powders come with a pretty hefty price tag. After years of trying every finishing and setting powder on the market, we discovered that some of the best ones are from the drugstore. We’ve rounded up our top five, affordable drugstore face powders, ahead.
If you’re looking for a colored, loose option that works whether you’re a minimalist or maximalist in your routine, try the Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Setting Powder. This powder is finely milled and will help your makeup stay crease free for just $12.
When it comes to a daily setting powder, Maybelline Fit Me! is our go-to. We love wearing this over Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation in a corresponding shade. Not only will it leave your makeup smooth and flawless, it will also lock it in place all day.
It’s no secret that L'Oréal Paris is one of the most well-known and trusted drugstore beauty brands on the market, and the Pro-Sweep & Lock Setting Powder doesn't disappoint. It provides you with a matte, soft-focus finish to your makeup and controls shine all day.
Hands down, the translucent NYX HD Finishing Powder is one of our OG favorite drugstore products. We love this powder for two reasons: its fine, translucent qualities brush over the most colorful of makeup flawlessly and we love its lightweight, airy finish.
For a camera-ready translucent option, try Perfect Selfie from Wunder 2. This airy powder is perfect for all skin tones, won’t give you flash-back and suits your beat whether it’s full-coverage or minimal.
