I feel foundation is such a big part of my overall makeup and if I get my foundation right, everything else will fall into place. I used to be the girl who used only high end foundations because I preferred their finish and quality. However, drug store brands have really stepped up their games and are churning out really good foundations that can give some high end brands a run for their money. I still love my high end foundations and go for them many times but I feel drug store ones are equally good especially for everyday wear. Many of these foundations have their own reviews which I would link where relevant. I have a video talking more in-depth about these foundations which you can watch here or above. It would also be amazing if you subscribed to my channel over here.
You all know how I feel about this foundation so I would reign it in. It is one of the best drug store foundations I have tried. I love L'Oreal foundations (when I find my shade) and I don't think any one I have tried has let me down. The L'Oreal True Match provides a good medium coverage that can be built up if you want. It has a demi-matte finish which I personally think is the best kind of finish for my combination oily skin. The lasting power is pretty good but it is better when you use a concealer (if you have blemishes) and set it with a powder. I love it!!
I have raved about this foundation already last week and I still feel the same way about it. I have a lot of foundations and for me to always reach for one foundation consistently then it must be doing something right. This is the answer to my fellow combination/oily skin girls because it is amazing at oil control (although I do use a Primer and set it with a powder). It lasts a really long time and it does not disappear despite the weather being very warm and humid. It may not really be the best for dry skin girls but I think it would still work fine if you prep your skin well
Revlon ColorStay Foundation //£12.99 // Link // Review (coming soon)
I am sure I am the only girl in the world who slept on this foundation!! I am serious; everybody I know has tried this foundation at some point. I did not want to purchase it because it had no pump and I am not about that pump-less foundation life at all. However, I decided to just purchase it one day and it has been love all through. I have a full review coming up soon so I won't say too much. It has one of the best lasting powers for a foundation especially a drug store one. I am very impressed!!
I don't think I would ever stop purchasing this foundation because it is easily the best foundation match for my complexion. I have used this foundation for many years especially when I lived back in Nigeria. It has the correct warm/yellow undertone for my complexion and it looks super flattering on my skin. It is matte wear as well but I do think it has a nice velvet finish which is super.
Kuddy Cosmetics Ultra Waterproof Matte Foundation// N3000// Review// only sold in Nigeria
I bought this foundation last year and I was also kindly gifted with some products from the Kuddy range. This is one foundation that withstands sweat or any moist situation. I am so proud of Nigerian Beauty Brands who churn out some of the best products I have used. The shade range is amazing for darker skin ladies but I don't think they cater to people who have paler skin at the moment. I am sure they would expand in no time. The coverage and longevity is really impressive as well. I hope you enjoyed watching this video and reading this post. I plan to do another one featuring my Top 5 High End foundations so watch out for that video. I hope you had an amazing weekend and I would see you in my next post.
