And over the last 5-7 years, the R&D's of these "drugstore" brands have greatly improved and they now offer quality makeup that stands up to the higher end brands. Not to mention that some of these "drugstore" brands are owned by the same conglomerates that own the high end brands. In any case, the quality of drugstore makeup has shifted and you can now find really great products for a fraction of the price that you would pay for in the department stores. I've decided to break down this topic into the different parts of the face. In this post, I'll focus on my favorite drugstore face products.
I am really loving a couple of foundations that offer formulations very similar to some higher end brands. Revlon's ColorStay and PhotoReady foundations are great foundations offering medium to full coverage, great pigmentation, huge color range and different formulations for different skin types. For me, these foundations are comparable to my HG foundation - Chanel Pro Lumiere (discontinued).
The one concealer that I'm loving is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Eraser. This concealer is great for correcting, concealing and highlighting all at once. The coverage is great and it doesn't have the tendency to settle into the fine lines around my eye. This is a great concealer to have in your makeup bag!
