Beauty Bloggers and Their Favorite Drugstore Foundations

I've already shared by blogging friends' favorite foundations and favorite BB and CC creams, today I'm sharing their favorite drugstore foundations. The drugstore foundations of 2014 are not the foundations of 10 or even 5 years ago. Technology is advancing, prices are dropping, and the quality of today's foundations really are much more similar to higher end products than they ever have been in the past. You no longer "have" to splurge on a higher end foundation to get a great product that matches your skin. I've included a few extra BB creams, though there are some great drugstore BB Cream picks in the BB & CC Cream post too.

"I normally turn my nose up at drugstore foundations. However, Revlon Colorstay (1, get it here or here) (for oily/combo skin) is my all time favorite. It provides flawless full coverage, lasts all day, and never looks cakey."
- Krystle from Baking Beauty

"Drugstore-wise I'm lately loving Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Makeup (2, get it here or here)."
- Brooke from Blushing Noir

"Maybelline FIT Foundation (3, get it here)"
- Prime Beauty

"I'm loving the Rimmel Matte 9-in-1 BB Cream (4, get it here). It's liquidy, but dries down to a satin matte finish that doesn't feel or look too dry. Plus, it has medium coverage to hide any problem areas! For something lighter, I turn to the NYC Smooth Skin BB Cream (8), which has a brightening effect for dewy, luminous skin."
- Miranda from Slashed Beauty

"CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation (5, get it here)."
Heather from Crazy Beautiful Makeup

"Revlon Age Defying Foundation (6, get it here)"
- Alyson from The Gloss Menagerie

"Revlon's PhotoReady BB Cream with SPF 30 (7, get it here or here)."
- Sandra D. from Mom's Makeup Stash

  1. I'll have to add these to my wish list!! I usually only use high end foundations, but I've been wanting to discover a great one thats not as pricey!

  2. I love Rimmel's Match Perfection foundation - it really suits very pale complexions. Also, it is often on sale - a bonus. I have tried many high end brands and have ended up throwing them out because they were too yellow based and the makeup assistants did not bother to help me choose the correct shade OR chose the wrong shade for me. I am pink based and generally needed the lightest shade with pink undertones. The Match Perfection has many shades for you to choose from. It provides excellent coverage when used with a primer. Give it a go.

  3. I love Maybelline Fit Me Foundation! Love that its on this list.
