One of my favorite parts of sharing products with you guys is finding affordable drugstore options that work just as well as the expensive stuff! Now it’s even easier to find these products because hello, AMAZON! You can get almost any makeup or beauty product shipped to your house in just two days, which still blows my mind. Amazon also has some of the best prices I’ve seen on drugstore foundation, so you’ll totally save a few extra bucks and a trip to the store! I’ve narrowed it down for you guys to my top 5 favorites that you can find on Amazon right now for under $17!!
This is one of COVERGIRL’s newest foundations and is definitely one of my favorites when it comes to full coverage. It’s super affordable and I love how hydrated it leaves my skin. As you can probably tell from the name, it’s packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients like Vitamin E (which I’m a huge fan of), B3 and B5. All of these vitamins are great for anti-aging and fighting common skin concerns like dry skin and discoloration.
Neutrogena is one of my favorite drugstore brands because it’s affordable and it works! Though not a traditional foundation, this hydrating tint is a great pick if you love tinted moisturizers. It’s one of my favorites because it not only evens out my complexion, but it keeps my skin super hydrated (thanks, hyaluronic acid.)
One of the key things I look for in a foundation is how blendable it is. I love that I can easily blend this one to match my skin tone and control the amount of coverage I want. It gives light to medium coverage and has SPF 17, so it’s ideal for everyday wear. This one is super highly reviewed and is definitely a go-to for natural-looking foundation when you’re on a budget.
I raved about the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in my blogpost about all my favorite drugstore makeup products, but it’s still one of my all time favorites. Can you believe it’s under $6 bucks!? I definitely recommend this drugstore foundation if you have acne-prone skin or an uneven skin tone that needs a bit more coverage. The best part is that it’s oil-free and doesn’t clog your pores, so I don’t have to worry about break outs! Also, this is one of the most skin tone-inclusive lines of drugstore foundation with 40 different shades!!
This Burt’s Bees foundation is the most recent one I’ve tried, and so far I’m really impressed! This foundation gives you medium coverage and is very buildable. I found that it’s pretty moisturizing and gives me a dewy finish, so I like to top it off with some translucent powder for a more matte look. I also love that this foundation is actually made with ingredients that benefit your skin like meadowfoam seed oil and honey.
I know how overwhelming going down the drugstore makeup aisle can be, so I would definitely start here if you’re looking for a good, inexpensive foundation. I mean, there’s nothing worse than buying and opening up a foundation that just doesn’t cut it, am I right??
