The other day I went to the local Walgreens to pick up some foundation, because (once again) I had run out. Every time I go to the store, I buy the same mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, etc., but for some reason, I never pick up the same foundation! So, here’s what I got this time:
And you know what? I think I will add this to my list of regular makeup buys. There are so many aspects about this foundation that I love, and I just haven’t been able to find in any of the others that I have tried.
1. First off (and maybe most importantly), it is so affordable. You can purchase it online at Walmart for only $5.94, which is half the price of some foundations… even more than that if you’re buying something name-brand or really high quality.
2. I have fairly healthy skin in general, but when I use this, my skin is less oily than when I don’t use it! And it’s not even the Covergirl Clean Liquid Makeup, Oil Control. It doesn’t irritate my skin. I don’t break out with it on. I have even slept with this foundation on multiple times (guilty), and nothing happens. I definitely don’t recommend that; it’s terrible for your skin regardless of whether you breakout immediately after or not, but I was desperate. I’m just thankful that this is what I was wearing at the time.
3. It really is clean and light. I can’t feel it when I wear it. That statement might be overused, but it’s true, and it is a good quality to have in a foundation. I honestly believe with it on that it is my own skin. It doesn’t look caked on. It blends right in. There are so many different shade options that finding one shouldn’t be a struggle. Personally, I use Buff Beige (as pictured above).
