We all know I love my Tarte,Too Faced, Lancome. Especially when it comes to my foundation. I know that we all love finding cheaper options to foundation, face powders, and concealer.  Especially now that more and more drugstores brands are getting better.

The majority of the companies I am sharing are cruelty free, if there is an * that means that I am unsure.

Let’s get started!

loreal true match

One of my fave foundations and powders. There are a lot of color options and it is a full coverage foundation. Great for most skin types! And it is cheap! A dewy to soft and powdery finish and oil free. your powder and foundation will be the same color. buy here

Nyx total coverage liquid makeup.

This one is new to me, but I loved it! It is a bit runny, but has buildable coverage. And it is a nice latte finish. It feels nice on the skin. Super affordable too! This foundation lasted all day in the Florida heat! buy here

Elf flawless finish foundation

Not as many color options but still good! has spf and it is oil free for my oily skin. buy here

*Loreal infallible matte

This stuff is amazing and long wearing. Lots of colors. And if you are vampiricike me they have pink undertones in the fairest colors available. It is matte like it says and it wears really well. buy here

Milani 3 in 1 foundation.

not many shades but a lot of beauty gurus use this and it has great coverage. however not pale enough for me and is on the yellow side.I had high hopes for this, it did not stop me from trying it though! It was really good, but color wrong. cruelty free makeup. buy here and while you are at it get their baked blushes!


there ya go. Foundations for the budget conscious! These foundations are all good and some are better than others! have you tried any of these?
