I asked you all what kind of posts you wanted to see on B&B a couple months ago and a couple of you were interested in knowing my top drugstore foundations! I thought it was a great idea and so did a bunch of you. We’re going to take it a little further and talk about the best drugstore foundations for oily skin since I’m the oiliest girl on the planet.
BB Cream – CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream for Oily Skin
I never thought I could use a BB cream! It only took 5 years for Western beauty companies to make BB cream formulas for oily skin, but better late than never, right? The CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream for Oily Skin offers pretty great coverage for a light formula and never looks greasy. I have a full in-depth review that really spells out all my love for it up already, but there’s no harm in having another little rave review. This stuff is my go-to, everyday base product (if it matches my skin at the time at least) and I can’t see myself using anything else.
Buildable Coverage – Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft- Matte Hydrating Foundation
Sometimes you need to start out slow and add coverage as you go. My main pick? The Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft- Matte Hydrating Foundation. It has a gel/mousse texture that blends into the skin quickly and looks incredibly natural. It starts at a medium coverage and can be built up to be almost full. It almost seems like it has some kind of blurring power and makes the skin look airbrushed. This one is probably the least long-lasting of the bunch, but I love using it during the cooler months.
Medium Coverage – L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte
Everyone loves the L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation for good reason. It’s a strong medium coverage that makes the skin look natural, but perfected. It stands up to heat and humidity like no other and lasts for ages. If I get even remotely oily, it looks glowy rather than greasy. I really feel like almost every skin type could get on with this one. You can see it in action in this Face of The Day post from last Spring!
Full Coverage – Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer
Who’s surprised that my pick for full coverage foundation is the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer? It’s sweat proof, it’s water-proof, it’s long wearing. Oh, and the coverage is next level. It lasts and lasts no matter how oily my skin gets and never looks gross. It doesn’t separate or break apart. I seriously can’t fault it. This stuff is magic in a tube. For more details and to see the application, check out my full review!
