It’s no secret that we love an affordable beauty buy, but every once in a while, we like to treat ourselves to a splurge-worthy product or two. After all, some products are truly worth a higher price tag — especially the ones we put on our faces every day, like foundation. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself, consider doing so on one of these complexion-perfecting luxury foundations. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
If you’re a fan of the no-makeup makeup look, meet your new daily staple. The formula offers light, buildable coverage and contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid and emollient oils to keep skin hydrated and nourished throughout the day.
This medium-to-full coverage foundation is more than makeup. The formula is infused with the same anti-aging properties that are found in the brand’s powerful Rénergie skin-care line. In addition to evening out the complexion, fine lines and wrinkles look smoother and skin looks more plump and youthful.
An ideal formula for warmer temperatures and/or effortless days, this tinted moisturizer evens out your skin tone and gives you a lit-from-within glow. Plus, it’s oil-free and non-comedogenic.
This silky foundation has a semi-satin finish and contains light-diffusing particles for a dewy and airbrushed look. Reviewers love that it offers substantial coverage, but doesn’t look or feel heavy.
This multi-tasking foundation is a cult classic thanks to its weightless, skin-loving formula that brightens, softens, moisturizes and blurs the appearances of pores and imperfections. Despite being lightweight, it’s sweat- and oil-resistant.
This award-winning foundation is beloved by beauty editors and makeup artists. Its weightless formula has buildable coverage, offers a healthy-looking glow and dries down to a skin-like, demi-matte finish. It really does look like silk on the skin.
If you’re looking for an oil-free formula that’ll last all day, consider your search over. This long-wearing matte formula is available in 45 high-performance shades. It also won’t cake or crease thanks to oil-control pigments like perlite and silica.
With buildable coverage and a breathable formula, YSL All Hours Natural Matte Foundation is a must-have. A little goes a long way and all you need is a small amount to cover your entire face. You definitely get your money’s worth with this formula — and catch a little glow in the process.
