Current Favourite Drugstore Foundation

Although L’Oreal True Match is probably my favourite foundation ever, I still don’t trust drugstore foundations anywhere near as much as I do highend foundations. I think there is still something in my mind that tells me higher price= better product but of course that isn’t always the case.

My newest drugstore discovery is Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude which I had previously ignored until I saw it on Grace’s skin and it really left her with a flawless, airbrushed finish. There have been a whole range of reviews on this foundation and it probably isn’t one that suits everyone but I’ve been loving it but it’s so affordable it really is worth a try.

It is a runny texture and since I haven’t tried many fluid foundations I don’t have much to compare it to. I quite like to use my fingers to apply foundation but a brush really works with this foundation (I’ll share my new favourite brush soon!), I simply apply a little to my face and buff it in. It blends effortlessly, feels silky smooth and is very light in texture. It covers all redness and really helps even out my skin but without masking my skin.

I do however see there being a downside in that there are only seven shades and I believe there is only one shade darker than I am using, I’m a light/light-medium shade so this isn’t one for anyone medium+.

At under £9 I am really impressed by this foundation, I haven’t reached for anything else since I got it and although it might not be my absolute favourite, it is up there and perfect for normal day wear.

    I love this foundation ..although I don't think the applicator is the easiest to use! (:

    i applied a little to the back of my hand in boots, and after rubbing it in it felt just amazing! Hopefully the lightest shade will suit me or I will be well and truly disappointed xx

    This sound really nice, I actually like runny foundations so I might give this a go. My favorite drugstore foundation is also L'oreal True Match 🙂

    I am always on the look out for a new budget friendly foundation to try & this sounds like a really good one. I like that it gives quite natural finish

    Your skin really looks flawless – exactly as it says on the bottle!
    I always find that foundation shades never go light enough for me, hope this one will, looks gorgeous 🙂

    If this covers redness really well then I feel it's defo something I should give a go. I normally use a redness counteracting green cream. xoxo

    I've been trying this foundation and agree that the shade range isn't brilliant. I had a hard time picking mine out and it still seemed a little to pink toned for me x

    I will definitely have to try this, I'm after something with great coverage but gentle on the skin and not too heavy
