My Favorite Drugstore Foundation


I am fully aware that I look naked in the above picture, but I can promise you that I am not. It’s just five thousand degrees in my apartment so I am wearing a tank top. Anyways, today I’d like to share my favorite, favorite, favorite drugstore foundation, Maybelline’s Dream Pure BB Cream.

Okay so technically… it’s a BB Cream. But I use it as a foundation. It’s my favorite because it’s literally so easy to apply. I just smudge it all over my face and it blends like a dream. The coverage is medium (and completely weightless – you can’t feel it at ALL). I use the shade Medium. It’s suuper grey-toned, which I find to be perfect for covering red spots & any zits. I also match with the shade Light, but I prefer Medium because it gives me more life and color in my face (without looking unnatural – did I mention it blends like a dream?). My only semi-problem with this foundation is that the staying power is not greeeat. If I apply it at the beginning of a work day, it definitely does not look as great come 5pm.

So how does it compare to Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream? The Dream Fresh version is more of a tinted moisturizer formula, meaning that it’s a bit sticker to blend & has lower coverage. However, that being said, it is much glowier & has SPF in it, which is great. It’s what I use when I’m just running out for errands and don’t want to spend too much time on my skin but still want to plop something on.

Drugstore foundations are really hit-or-miss. I’ve tried so many but this is the only one that I consistently re-purchase every time. What’s your favorite drugstore foundation or face product? Let me know!
