BEST DRUGSTORE FOUNDATION & CONCEALER

Welcome to my most highly requested post-to-date!

Today, I am going to share with you my favorite drugstore foundations and concealers!  The good news is that I have had SIGNIFICANTLY better luck with drugstore foundations than higher end (my local Sephora employees can vouch that I have literally tried every foundation in that place), so this post is really exciting for me.

I actually have THREE foundations from the drugstore that I am absolutely obsessed with:

#1 - L'Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup - It is $12.99 and my holy grail foundation. Click HERE for a more in-depth review of why I love it!  Also important to note: of all the foundations I love from the drugstore, this DEFINITELY has the widest shade range, accommodating various undertones as well.

#2 - NO7 Lift and Luminate Foundation - At $15.99, this is the most expensive of the three foundations but it is quickly becoming my new favorite - dare I say, "new holy grail?!" *Gasp!*  I have been using the Loreal Lumi for the past year, yet I find myself reaching for this one far more often in the past month. It has medium coverage, blends like a dream, matches my skin color perfectly, and it is definitely more hydrating and luminous (but not greasy) than most foundations out there.  It is lightweight, not cakey, and it does not crease or settle into my fine lines or wrinkles. It is truly THE BEST.

#3 - Wet & Wild Photo Focus Foundation - as if the $4.99 price tag wasn't incentive enough to try it, it also has a pretty decent range of colors to choose from and is BEAUTIFUL on the skin! Mostly because it actually looks like skin, while still covering any imperfections or blemishes you'd rather hide. It is a natural finish - not too dewy but definitely not matte.  The only downside is that it may be a little difficult to find; it has been sold out in most places because of its' popularity immediately after launching (I ordered mine online at the link above).

And let us not forget my favorite drugstore concealers! For me, great concealers are really hard to come by - especially with how dry my under eye area is.  Many concealers have failed me miserably, despite rave reviews and 5-star ratings online.  But fret not, my dark-undereye, concealer-wearing friends! Today, I am bringing you TWO excellent drugstore options that I truly adore and use very often (especially right now because I am currently out of my favorite concealer but am on a "no-buy"' kick... but more on that later).

#1 Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer - The price tag on this puppy is $8.99 and it is SO worth every penny.  Honestly, it is neck-and-neck with my UD Naked Skin Concealer, but only a third of the price.  Talk about a bargain!  It glides on flawlessly, never gets cakey or crumbly, blends out to perfection, very lightweight formula but has medium to full coverage for those tough under-eye days, and NEVER settles into those inevitable fine lines.

#2 Covergirl Outlast All-Day Soft Touch Concealer - while a little more expensive  at $11.99 and a little thicker in consistency, it shares a lot of similar qualities with the previous concealer.  Glides on, never cakey, blends well, closer to full coverage, and truly lasts ALL DAY.  This concealer IS more prone to ever so slight settling into fine lines around the eyes, but hardly noticeable.


Alright guys, these are my faaaaaaave foundations and concealers from the drugstore.  I hope this was helpful to those of you that might be in the market for some new face products OR are new to makeup and aren't willing to spend an arm and a leg on luxury brands.

** Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts? Do you have other favorite foundations and concealers that I didn't mention?  Tell me in the comments below! XOXO **

  1. Per your recommendation I tried the lumi and the photo focus. The Lumi is def the winner. I did NOT like the wet n wild photo focus at all. But for 4.99 that's okay. However I would also recommend the L'Oréal Infallible Pro Glow (or pro matte if your oily) it is my favorite right now.
