My Top Five Foundations


Hello! I thought it would be fun to whip up a little post about my FAVORITE foundations. I really thought about the ones that I reach for the most, and which ones I “can’t live without” so to speak. There are three high-end and two from the drugstore!

Covergirl 3-in-1 Stay Fabulous foundation in 825 Buff Beige– I can’t believe how much I love this stuff. My first review was lukewarm. With more use, I came to LOVE it. I’m nearly halfway through this bottle and would definitely repurchase. $10.

MAC Face and Body Foundation in N2– Not much new to report here. I love this sheer foundation! It’s easy to build and it looks fantastic in photos. I hope this never gets discontinued! $35 for 120 ml.

Boots No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation in Cool Ivory– I had a hard time choosing between this and MUFE Mat Velvet+, but I ultimately chose this because it is just as good as MUFE. I love how soft this is, and it has medium coverage. It isn’t heavy, and it’s only $14.

MAC Matchmaster Foundation in 2– I’ve said so many times that I need to fully review this, and I do, because it is so good! The staying power is awesome. It looks SO yellow in the bottle, but it really does adjust nicely. $34.

NARS Sheer Glow in Santa Fe– Yes, my love affair with this continues. I just adore this foundation. The only thing I don’t like is having to buy the pump separately, and then the cap doesn’t fit on top of it! Still, it is fantastic. $45.


Covergirl, Face & Body, Boots, Matchmaster, Sheer Glow

If I could only pick one, it would be between Face and Body or Sheer Glow. Don’t make me choose! 😀

    Great post. I’ve only ever used drugstore foundations (currently have the Covergirl 3-in-1 and love it) but have recently been interested in trying one or two higher end foundations. This post is super helpful in helping figure out where to start with all the options out there.

    I’ve been wanting to try that CG 3 in 1. But as with all my makeup, I need to run out of a ton of other stuff first. I need to do a top 5 foundation post… Haha. I have my top 3 figured out (Revlon Whipped Foundation, L’Oreal True Match Lumi & ELF’s Flawless Finish)

      I love Lumi! I feel like I haven’t found my perfect match in Revlon Whipped. Haven’t tried the ELF. 🙂
