5 Drugstore Foundations That Are Ridiculously Good (And Affordable)March 16, 2020
One of the best mattifying options at the drugstore is this Maybelline New York foundation. It has a lightweight, liquid formula that helps to refine the look of pores and mattify the oily areas on your face (hello, shine-tree T-zone) for a natural skin finish. If you have normal to oily skin, this one’s for you.
This foundation promises up to 24 hours of wear with medium-to-full, buildable coverage. The formula contains oil absorbers that make it sweat-, water- and transfer-resistant. It’s not matte and it’s not dewy — it has the perfect fresh-faced, healthy-complexion finish.
Waterproof? Check. Full coverage? Check. Lightweight? Check. This best-selling foundation offers a smooth, creamy matte finish. It’s suitable for normal, oily, combination and sensitive skin types, or in other words, anyone looking for a shine-free complexion.
If you have acne-prone skin, this foundation is formulated specifically for your skin type. It contains salicylic acid, tea tree oil and witch hazel to fight breakouts while offering lightweight, buildable coverage.
Blue light could potentially cause some serious damage to your skin. This foundation by Milani helps to block it with a digital blue-light filter. The coverage is light to medium and helps blur imperfections and discoloration with a luminous, natural skin finish.
