This post is all about the best full coverage foundations that you can find at the drugstore. At the start of this post, let me tell you that drugstore foundations can often be very good quality. If you identify the right products and the ones that are best suited to your skin type, then you can actually achieve flawless skin at very reasonable prices.
In this post, I have compiled a list of the top 9 drugstore foundations that can give you full coverage. So, if you’re just starting out with makeup and want to experiment with foundation, these will make for great options. On the other hand, if you’re a makeup pro and are simply looking for something that is good quality but still reasonably priced, then this list might help you as well.
Revlon’s Colorstay foundation is a cult classic, and the perfect choice for someone who is looking for natural-looking full coverage that hides everything—dark circles, blemishes, scars, etc.—and lasts the entire day.
The new pro-matte version of L’Oreal’s classic Infallible Foundation is a true winner in the coverage department. With a wide range of shades, you’re likely to find the right match for your skin tone. It truly gives you full coverage and a super matte finish (which can sometimes be a little drying, so moisturize well!).
This one might just be my personal favourite. This offers medium to full coverage (it is buildable) and a gorgeous soft matte and radiant finish to the skin. The only downside is the limited range of shades, but this foundation can easily be compared to any high-end luxury foundation for its great quality.
Superbly priced and with a wide range of shades, the matte version of Maybelline’s Fit Me is a true winner. It offers a buildable, natural looking coverage and a lasting finish.
This foundation lasts for a long, long time (as the name suggests), offers absolutely full coverage and actually feels really hydrating and comfortable to wear!
This classic foundation from L’Oreal offers medium coverage that can be built up to deliver full coverage. The shade range is truly incomparable and outstanding and the finish is very natural and skin-like.
This high-definition foundation from L.A Girl promises to deliver a luminous and radiant finish to the skin, while still giving you to medium to full coverage. This foundation is a great drugstore dupe for the iconic Makeup Forever HD Foundation.
This genius product from NYX is super pigmented and all you need is a drop or two of the product to add pigment to your moisturizer. You could also wear it in more concentrated forms for full coverage.
This highly customizable foundation from Milani can offer you full coverage and also double up as a concealer, but you can also wear it more lightly by applying it with a damp makeup sponge.
