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
“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
