It never fails, I always run out of foundation when I’m broke, it’s no secret that I’m a Make Up For Ever fanatic but I’m also a sucker for cheap cosmetics and love trying less expensive foundations just to see how they work. I’ve tried oh so many over the years and these are some good choices for those of you who, like me, love a good deal. If you have a fave foundation that is under $30.00 let me know in the comments, I’m always searching for new products to try.
Actually most of the foundations from Clinique are under $30.00 but the Superbalanced formula is the one I like the best. This foundation gives the skin a light amount of coverage, is weightless on the face and is good for all skin types. For those of you who want a little more coverage, try the Superfit formula.
I wear this foundation often enough that I stock up whenever it is on sale or I have a coupon. This foundation gives medium coverage that really does have more lasting power than most other drugstore brands. Add a couple of drops of this foundation to your moisturizer for super light coverage that leaves the skin looking healthy and hydrated.
This foundation claims that you will look up to 8 years younger within 12 days of using it. Well, I don’t look any younger when I use this foundation but it does last all day and is light on the skin. This foundation is one of the few inexpensive ones I’ve found that does not crease into fine lines.
I remember when Iman was in department stores and my mother spent arm and a leg when I was a teen as it was the only foundation that matched my skin. I still use the cream to powder foundation on occasion and recommend this foundation for darker skinned gals who are having trouble matching their skin tone.
The foundation used alone is a steal at $25.00 but if you haven’t used the Bare Minerals system, the Get Started Kit, although not under $30 is the best deal. Once you get the introductory kit, replacing the individual products is very affordable.
