My Top 3 Drugstore Foundations!

Hello beauties! I've tried so many drugstore foundations over the last few years that I think it is safe to say that I've now found 3 solid favorites! I will be sharing them with you today. No matter which skin type you have, you will find one for you in this top 3!

1.Rimmel Wake Me-Up Foundation:
This is one of my most recent discovery and I am so glad I bought it. I actually did a review on it not so long ago if you want to go check it out but I am going to describe it real quick. This is a medium/buildable foundation with a dewy finish. It contains tiny shimmer particles that gives it the dewy effect but you can't actually see them on the skin. It is a foundation that is super moisturising so if you have combination/oily skin you might want to stay away from it or put powder on top. It covers my scarrings and rednesses really well and wears for the whole day on my skin! If you are a fan of glowy/dewy skin, this is definetly a product that you will love! The only downside is that it is only availaible in 6 shades, which pretty much sucks.

2.Covergirl Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation:
I had this since 4 months and I haven't stopped using it. I was pretty sceptical at first because Covergirl products in my honest opinion are not the best, especially their foundations. I was shocked by how good this thing is! I checked a lot of review before buying it since people were saying that it was awful for dry skin, that it clings to dry patches etc,etc. I have really dry skin and had no problems with all the above. Though, I make sure that I moisturise a lot before applying it. Covergirl Outlast is a full coverage matte finish foundation, it lasts all day long, even after 12 hours of wear my face still looks flawless. Whenever my skin looks bad, I reach for this baby. Some people compare it to MUFE Mat Velvet+, which I can't say much about this since I haven't tried it yet. A really great foundation, even for my really dry skin. I assume it could work on every skin type from very dry to oily. Covergirl Outlast foundation is available in 14 shades!

3.Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation: I'm sure you heard a lot of beauty bloggers/gurus talking about this one! I got it around the same time as my Covergirl foundation and it is a solid staple in my makeup bag. I am a fan of Revlon PhotoReady and the infamous Colorstay aswell so I knew this would be another hit from Revlon! It has a medium/buildable coverage with a satin finish. It reminds me a bit of Nars Sheer Glow. It feels weightless on the skin and evens out my skintone so well. It never looks cakey on my dry skin even if you apply another layer. The only thing that annoys me is that it doesn't have a pump, you have to pour out the products and it oftens ends up being a bit messy. It starts to fade a bit at the end of the day but it's no big deal. It is available in 16 shades so there is a great chance that you will find the perfect match, even if you are really pale like me. This is a foundation that I will be wearing a lot during summer!

Have you tried any of these foundations? What do you think about them? Hope you enjoyed! xx
