THE 3 BEST DRUGSTORE FOUNDATIONS (in my opinion) | Oily/Combination Skin

Why hello there!
This blog post will be all about the foundations that I think work brilliantly for my pain in the ass skin. These foundations are the ones I buy over and over when I run out because they work so well for my skin but for all different reasons! So if you're interested in what foundations i'm talking about then keep on reading...


This foundation is promoted for being good for people with oily/combination skin and I agree with it to be honest.
I find this foundation to be a medium coverage that you can build with applying more. I use the shade Buff which has a yellow undertone to it.
It applies really easily with either a brush or a sponge (I use a brush) and I like the finish because it isn't a matte foundation which I like but it isn't really dewy either. I'd say it sets in the middle of matte and dewy which I guess is why its good for oily/combination skin which is what kind of skin I have myself.
I don't powder my skin throughout the day and I think this foundation lasts throughout the day really well. It doesn't look super oily yet you can still see the oil but not in a gross way.
I always repurchase this foundation as it doesn't make me break out in any way. Sets onto my skin really nice and has a decent lasting finish for my very oily skin.

MAXFACTOR 3 IN 1 FOUNDATION - Buy it here £12.99

This foundation is my must have and now always will be!
The coverage is medium but very buildable but you can also use a little bit to have a natural light coverage which I do time to time for a natural glow to conceal my redness.
It applies really well also with a brush or a sponge but I do tend to use a buffing brush to blend it into my skin better.
Once applied it has a dewy finish but nothing to drastic that it feels its not going to last well with my oily skin. I always set my foundation with powder anyways but it felt fine just on its own.
I like this foundation as I found the shade Natural 50 was the PERFECT match for my skin tone and I struggle to find that with a foundation but I also love the coverage and last of it as well.
It lasts me all day with this foundation and I mean even when i'm doing a 12 hour shift running about like an idiot kind of day!

MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY - Buy it here £9.99

This foundation (now I've got my correct shade) is the bomb! I love this foundation because the coverage is medium-full i'd say but you can build this foundation up and the coverage is gorgeous! Perfect for a day time look or a heavy glam party look.
I use a medium blending brush to apply this foundation but you can use either a brush or sponge it has a lovely application and applies well.
I like how this foundation sets. Its more matte than dewy yet it isn't a hard MATTE matte finish if you know what I mean?.. I've tried other foundations before that had a matte finish and they clung to ever dry patch on my skin and felt almost too drying for my skin. Also didn't last with my oily skin either. However this foundation sits really comfortably on the skin and is now my go to everyday foundation.
I find this foundation lasts me all damn day like through scorching weather on a long shift at work, all day!
It doesn't ever look cakey and I find it doesn't set into my smile lines as bad as other foundations.
