6 Drugstore Face Powders to Try This SummerJuly 21, 2020
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 six, affordable drugstore face powders, including translucent, colored and matte options, ahead.
For an illuminating finish, Lasting Fix Banana Powder will be your go-to. This weightless formula mattifies skin and minimizes shine, all while color correcting the skin for a luminous, bright finish. The best part? You can use this as a setting or baking powder, and you won’t be left feeling chalky or cakey.
If you’re looking for a tinted, loose powder option, try the Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Setting Powder. Its finely milled and will help your makeup stay crease-free for just $12.
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.
When it comes to a daily setting powder, you can’t go wrong with Maybelline Fit Me!. We love wearing this over the Maybelline New York Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation in a corresponding shade. Not only will the powder leave your makeup smooth and flawless, but it will also lock it in place all day.
The translucent NYX HD Finishing Powder is one of our OG favorite drugstore compact powders. We love this loose setting 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 powder, try Perfect Selfie from Wunder 2. This airy, pressed powder is perfect for all skin tones, won’t give you flashback and suits your beat whether it’s full-coverage or minimal.
