My Favorite Drugstore Foundation

Generally speaking, I’m not the biggest fan of drugstore foundations. Having yellow undertones makes me odd man out in the isles of pink based makeup. I picked up my first tube of the Covergirl ‘Ready, Set, Gorgeous’ foundation about a year and a half ago thinking it was a BB Cream. I was surprised to discover it was a full coverage, not a BB.

This product is oil free, it won’t clog your pores, and suitable for sensitive skin. What I love about it though is that it lasts all day! I call this my super glue foundation because once it is dry, it won’t go anywhere. When I was working at J. Crew and when I would handle a lot of white silk, and cashmere so I had to be very careful about my makeup getting on items. I never had any problems with this foundation. I could even hug people with no rub off on their shirt (#TheStruggle).

I wear the shades ‘115 Buff Beige’ and ‘120 Nude Beige’. They are very similar, but 115 has been drying a little grey on me recently, so I’m mixing it with 120 to warm it up. I pull this foundation out whenever my dry skin really acts up. It keeps my skin from getting flaky throughout the day and with cold weather rolling in, I figured I would share this dry skin favorite with you.
