Based on our massive collection of drugstore faves, it would be safe to say that we love to save money. But, saving dough in one place (say, blush) also allows us to splurge in others, like foundation. Some buys are truly worth the hefty price tag — especially when it’s a product you use on your face, every day. And, hey, drugstore foundation still gets the job done, but there’s nothing quite like feelin’ the lap of luxury swiped across your skin. So, on the days you’re feeling extra fancy, try one of these foundations on for a million-dollar glow that doesn’t quite cost a million.
This isn’t one of the most talked about (and award-winning) foundations for nothin’! The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundationis so weightless you’ll forget you’re even wearing it. But, just because it’s light doesn’t mean it can’t offer coverage. The hydrating fluid is buildable and leaves your skin with a natural, radiant glow.
We’re not going to lie, the Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundationis basically famous … and for good reason! The Maestro formula is a fusion foundation, blended with oils and pigments to deliver the thinnest color film that essentially melts into the skin. If you’d consider yourself to be the “no-makeup makeup” kinda gal, this is for you.
Combining foundation and skin care in one bottle, the Lancôme Teint Visionnairedoesn’t just cover imperfections, it corrects them. In just four weeks, dark spots, fine lines and pores are reduced. Now, how’s that for a foundation?
