I don't know about you guys but I love me some drugstore makeup! In-fact, almost all of my makeup collection came from the drugstore. There is just something about affordable cosmetics that I just cannot seem to say no to, and I know I am not the only one. In this post I have three of my current drugstore foundations and my thoughts on each, enjoy.
If you have been reading my blog for a long time or even stalking my Instagram you are probably well aware that this foundation is my holy grail. I just cannot get enough! Having oily/combination skin can be rather frustrating sometimes since I want my skin to look perfectly matte without emphasizing the fact that I also have dry patches and this foundation hides this rather well if I do say so myself. The Colorstay foundation range also comes in nine shades in differing tones. Which brings me to my next point; this foundation, or at least the shade I purchase, is yellow-toned, can I get a hallelujah! Dramatic, I know but having yellow-toned, pale skin can make colour matching difficult at the best of times which is probably why I attached myself to this foundation so early in my makeup journey. Definitely recommend.
Leighannsays definitely persuaded my purchasing of this foundation. Firstly, I want to say that although I own the palest shade in the collection it is still about two shades too dark. Being Winter here in Australia I am currently at my palest so I am hoping to get my tan on in the next few months so I can actually show this foundation the love it deserves. Yes, even in the wrong shade I still cannot go past this formula. It is the fullest coverage I have come across at the drugstore with major long-lasting effects, all the while keeping my skin demi-matte. 3-in-1? Yes indeed.
After two hits I bring you my drugstore foundation miss. If like me you have yellow-toned skin or oily skin then this foundation is not even worth picking up. While it does come in twelve shades therefore catering to those of the paler skin type the shades are very pink-toned. Putting the tone aside I have been trying to properly test out the foundation for some time now but always with the same ending result. Foundation that seems to magically disappear off my face after about just two hours of wear, even with a primer. With that in mind I think it is safe to say I will not be repurchasing.
That is it for me this week, hope you enjoyed the post. It feels good to be back into the swing of blogging again! If you have any post requests I always love to hear them.
