(Emergency) Drugstore Foundation Shop

Whilst I am in love with mac foundations and the coverage they give, I don't like wearing them on a day to day basis as it's just too full coverage for daily use and I prefer a more natural look during the day. However, I personally have a different shade of foundation for everything. Since I fake tan quite regularly I like to have a variety of shades that will match and compliment the colour of my skin. I like to have a variety of finishes, for example, in summer I like a dewy, glowy finish to my skin, however in winter I like a matte finish to my skin. I also like to have a range of brands, I tend to wear my Estée Lauder double wear, mac foundations and nars sheer glow when I'm going to be going out and I use drugstore foundations on a more day to day basis. So this morning when I realised I was starting to run out of my favourite everyday foundation I had to use ones that I didn't like quite as much so today I went to superdrug and they had 2 for £10 on Maybelline products so I purchased two foundations I have not tried before.

I like trying out new products so this is just a brief post about these foundations and then I think I will do a first impressions blog post. 

I tend to like fuller coverage foundations so I opted for the Maybelline 24 hour super stay foundation. I have read good reviews about the staying power of this foundation so I thought I would give it a bash and see how it worked with my skin type and complexion. 

The second foundation was the Maybelline dream satin liquid. This is more of a medium-full coverage foundation but I think it will be build able to the desired coverage you want. I also think this would be an ideal everyday foundation as it doesn't look like it would be cakey on the skin. I am a sucker for trying new products and whenever I see beauty gurus hyping about products I always feel inclined to try them out. 

What are your go to foundations at this time of year? 


  1. I've never used a drugstore foundation before - I've always used Mac's Fluidline but like you too, I prefer a more natural look most days! I'll definitely be checking out this foundation - the only issue I have is that I don't know how to choose the right shade >.<

  2. I love mac so much, it's always such an easy brand to buy from! I personally like to use the testers that drugstores supply and then apply them to the back of my hand or on my neck and see if it matches my skin tone! Hope this helped:)

  3. Thanks for this, have you tried any Airbrush foundations? I only just recently tried, like it so far.

    1. No problem at all:) no I haven't actually! I'll give them a go:)

  4. I haven't tried the Maybelline foundations yet but the two you picked seem like the amount of coverage I would want. Let me know when you finally swatch and test them out for a day! :D The drugstore foundation I use is Neutrogena Shine Free Foundation for my oily skin type and the coverage is light-medium. It does help in the shininess prevention department. ^^
