Review on 3 Drugstore Foundations

Hey everyone! I wanted to write a post on my thoughts and feelings on 3 different foundations from the drugstore. I absolutely love affordable products and wanted to let you know if each one is worth your hard earned coins or not!

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in 103 True Ivory ($9 ) - This is a product that I purchased on sale at Wal-Mart for $8 and although they didn't have the shade Light Ivory in-stock, I purchased True Ivory and it still works well for me. This is a mousse consistency and I love mixing it in with my Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation to get a flawless finish to my skin! I bought this because I have oily skin and anything that claims to help with the shine, I am automatically drawn to! This did in-fact help control my oils throughout the day to a certain extent. There are 7 shades and they also have a primer to go along with this foundation which I haven't tried out yet. If you are wondering, this is definitely a full coverage foundation, it is build able, I apply mine with a beauty blender and a little bit goes a long way!

COVERGIRL truBlend Liquid Makeup in l5 Creamy Natural ($10-$12) - I was actually sent this product to review and it is overall not a bad product. It is not one of my favourites however but I prefer it over the COVERGIRL 3-in-1 Foundation which I actually ended up returning because it didn't work out well for me. It also oxidized like crazy and I was looking like an Oompa Loompa during my shift. I digress, this foundation is a little bit too dark for me right now but I mix it in with another one to even my complexion out. They have an excellent shade range as they have 21 shades to choose from and for some, this can be a great every day foundation to wear to go to work or school. 

Since I have oily skin, I can't use this foundation alone and that's why I need to mix it with another one. My face gets way too oily and looks super greasy when I wear this product alone even when using other oil-control products. I feel like this product would be best suited for people with dry skin because the oils on my face really break-up the product and it ends up looking terrible throughout the day on me. I like that it does come with a pump and I would say that this is a light to medium coverage foundation because you can sheer it out or build up the coverage to your liking.

COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Powder Foundation in 105-110 Fair ($8) - I was able to purchase mine at Wal-Mart on sale for $7 and I had a coupon for an additional $2 off which worked out well! I was in Rexall a few weeks ago and was originally going to purchase this compact, but I ended up putting it back on the rack (which I ended up regretting doing.) That's why when I seen this on Rollback, I didn't think twice about buying it! There are only 5 shades available though and I purchased this for days where I want a more full coverage look. I would go ahead and add this on top of my foundation to give me extra coverage to ensure that none of my freckles are peaking through. I haven't used a powder foundation in about 2-3 years and I honestly miss using one! 

It can also be used to quickly give yourself some coverage in the morning or you can slip it into your purse to use to touch-up throughout the day! It does come with a small makeup sponge and keep in mind that this is a small compact, you are only getting 10.5g/.37 oz of product in the pan. It does come with a mirror that I probably won't even use and this is a light to medium coverage product perfect for oily skinned ladies! Be sure not to use too much or be heavy handed with this because your face can start to look cakey throughout the day! I really want to try-out the foundation from the same line so let me know if you have tried it out and what you thought about it in the comments down below!

I also have an entire dedicated review on the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation that you can check-out which is another great foundation from the drugstore!

Until next time,
