Battle of the Drugstore Foundations


Drugstore foundations the only foundations that I own despite my MAC studio fix that
I can't wear because it is too dark for me. Maybe drugstore foundations are my 
favourite because they are all I've tried but I do really like and enjoy using them. 
Not only is there such a wide range of formulas, colours and finishes from 
different brands but they are super affordable and easily accessible. 

Collection lasting perfection - This was one of the first foundations that I bought. It claims to last up to 16 hours, have flawless coverage, minimises imperfections, has SPF 20 and is oil free. When I first purchased this it was my favourite foundation as it had great coverage and lasting power, however since repurchasing this I have realised that it is the best for my skin type as it does cling to some of my dry patches as I have really bad dry skin. Despite being not the best for my particular skin type it is a really good foundation as does give a flawless coverage and look to the skin.  This can be found at Boots, Superdrug and a few supermarkets for around £5.99. Overall I would give this a 7/10.

Rimmel wake me up - I have used this foundation before and decided to repurchase this as I remembered how much I love this. This claims to be an anti-fatigue foundation, whilst being both brightening and illuminating, with vitamin c and SPF 15. The reason I really like this foundation because it has minute glitter particles that aren't visible when on the skin but it creates a brightening affect on the skin. This foundation is particularly great when paired with the matching concealer. This can also be found at Boots, Superdrug, Supermarkets and online for around £8.99. Overall I would give this foundation of 7/10.

Revlon colourstay - This is my favourite drugstore foundation that I have been using constantly for about 6 months now. This claim to last 24 hours, have a flawless look, lightweight feel on the skin and have SPF 20. One of my favourite things about this foundation is that it comes in 2 separate formulas for both oily and dry skin so that is fits and works for your specific skin type better. I would say that this provides a medium coverage rather than a flawless full coverage look, as you can still see some of my imperfections through it. This does have great lasting power however as I don't wear foundation for 24 hours I don't know whether it lasts for the full 24 hours. This can be found in Boots and Superdrug for around £12.99 being one of the more expensive drugstore foundations. Overall I would give this foundation at 9/10.

L'oreal true match - I originally picked this up last year because I had heard so many good reviews about it and how good the formula and coverage was. I wasn't that impressed with this at first, however when I heard that they had reformulated the foundation and many people who didn't like it at first now loved it, I was definetly curious to give it a go. This foundation claims to be super-blendable, perfectly match your skin colour and texture, whilst having 24 hour hydration and SPF 17. I do prefer this new formula to the old one, and I do agree that it matches your skin colour however I'm not sure if it was a coincidence but the first few times that I tried this I did have a few spots appear. Despite that I really enjoyed it and it does have a really great coverage. This can be found at Boots and Superdrug and also a lot of supermarkets and online shops for around £9.99. Overall I would give this a 8/10.

Maybelline dream satin liquid - This is my least favourite drugstore foundation that I have, as it is quite a thick consistency. This foundation claims to have a 100% poreless look and airbrush perfection. I do think that this foundation has great coverage and lasting power however it is super thick and feels quite heavy when on the skin. I think that this foundation will look great when worn on special occasions for a more full coverage look or even mixed in with a moisturiser for a lighter feel. This can be found at Boots and Superdrug for around £7.99. Overall I would give this foundation a 7/10.

Bourjois 123 perfect - I picked this foundation up because I had originally tried the healthy mix foundation from Bourjois and loved it so I was curious to whether or not I liked this one. This foundation claims to have yellow pigments for anti-dark circles, mauve pigments for anti-dull complexion, green pigments for anti-redness, flawless complexion, last up to 16 hours, 24 hour hydration and SPF 10. I would say that this foundation has medium coverage that can easily be built up. This foundation can be found at Boots, Superdrug and various online stores for around £10.99. Overall I would give this foundation 8/10.
