Last year, SkinStore published a survey stating that women wear about $8 worth of makeup and skin care products a day (yes, per day). To put that into perspective, it’s around $250 a month and well over $200,000 in a lifetime! But if you take into account just how costly some beauty products are…well, it makes sense.
One way to save money on beauty products is by opting for drugstore products in place of your high-end ones — especially when it comes to foundation. If you didn’t know, there are so many drugstore foundations that are just as good (if not, better) than its high-end counterparts.
From high-coverage foundations to foundations that also combat acne, check out our top five drugstore foundations below.
This ultra-lightweight foundation is jam-packed with antioxidants to maintain your skin’s natural glow. It’s an amazing dupe for the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation as it blends flawlessly while covering any imperfections.
You can get the same effect as the Lancôme Miracle Cushion Liquid Foundation for a fraction of the price. This L’Oréal option is only $16 a pop and it helps you achieve that “no makeup” makeup look. What’s not to like?
Get the coverage you need without feeling cakey with Revlon’s Nearly Naked Foundation. Like Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup, this drugstore alternative has buildable coverage for a flawless finish.
If you’re a fan of Clinique’s Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup, you’ll love e.l.f.’s version. It expertly conceals blemishes while fighting it with salicylic acid, witch hazel, tea tree, camphor, and aloe.
Ladies with oily skin are in for a treat. Achieve the same matte finish as MAC’s Studio Fix Liquid with Maybelline’s foundation. It comes in a wide variety of shades and easily blends while blurring pores.
