Favorite Drugstore Foundations

I am excited to do this post for you guys! I have been researching for this post for about a month now, trying a different foundation every week to see what I liked and more importantly what my skin liked. These have made the list, so without further ado:


First up I am going to start with Concealer's. My all time favorite drugstore concealer right now is the Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer. I have the color fair and I love it. 


It works as a great under eye concealer for my dark circles and great as a highlighter as well. I love the finish it gives and it lasts all day long (I tested it). Highly recommend this product. 
Next is my Nyx concealer in the flesh tone color. This works as a great all purpose cover up for those occasional blemishes we all get. 


It offers full coverage and really helps make my blemishes appear less threatening, always a plus. I usually apply this after I apply foundation but before I add my finishing powder. 
Next is my NYC Smooth Skin powder in the color fair. I use this to set my under eye area and really help make the makeup last all day. 


I haven't tried Mac Shaping Pro Powder so I can't give an opinion on how it compares to that for setting the under eye area, however for me, this product works great. 
Next up is highlighters. 
This one is the Loreal Magic Lumi highlighter in the shade light. This was my first highlighter I ever tried and it was great for a beginner. It really was easy to apply, blended well and gave a really great glow to those areas that light hits more naturally. 


Something very similar in comparison is the Dream Lumi highligher by Maybelline. The formula for both of these products is very similar and I feel that it would be a great addition to your collection. 


FOUNDATIONS!!!
My all time favorite drugstore foundation for Oily Skin is: Elf acne fighting foundation. This product gives you a very natural matte looking finish with a full coverage. When I want to hide all blemishes I go for this baby, its perfect, my skin doesn't break out and its $6.00! If you have Oily Skin you have to try it. 


My next favorite and sort of an equal in my opinion to the ELF one is Revlon 24 hrs ColorStay foundation for Oily/Combination Skin. This is a dream. It gives a good moisturizing feeling to my skin, provides a medium coverage and makes me look youthful. I just can't really describe it but its awesome. 


My next two products are pretty much the same. Both are from the Loreal True Match line and the first one gives more of a matte finish and the second one gives more of a dewy finish. They both work great for me and depending on what primer I use that day helps me decide what foundation to choose. 



And my finishing powder. I have been using this Loreal True Match powder as my finishing powder for about a month and a half now. I love it. It works great, helps to set in my foundation and makeup and I find everything lasting for a longer amount of time. Love this product. 


Well there you have it, my favorite foundations for Oily Skin. 
Stay Tuned for tomorrow when I do a post about the new Erin Condren Life Planners.
