Now that the weather is getting chillier, our skin is also changing. If you've been oily all summer, you might find your skin needs changing, as well as your foundation shade, so it's a good time to take stock of your makeup and inject some new items into your wardrobe.

4 Drugstore Foundations Under £10

This week, we're focusing on Foundations from the Drugstore under £10. I haven't bought a Drugstore foundation in YEARS simply because I could never find my shade, but I'm hoping to inspire some onto my wishlist when my current EX1 Foundation runs out.

L'Oreal Paris True Match

L'Oreal True Match* has had a HUGE campaign on TV, Blogs and social media with top influencers and bloggers as well as Cheryl Cole (She'll always be Cole to me!) as part of the campaign to create a range of shades to suit every skin tone.

I'm excited but also amused it's taken this long for a drug store brand to be inclusive of brown and black girls who until now have had to shop at higher end stores to get the right shade for them.



I haven't heard anything about the Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation* at all, but it promises to turn you into an icon. It promises to nourish and blur imperfections for a natural dewy complexion.

I've never tried a Max Factor foundation in my life, so I'd be interested in going see if they have my shade next time I'm in Superdrug.

Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation


Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation* claims that this is a hydrating matte foundation with a gel formula that leaves you hydrated for up to 12 hours.

I'm certainly intrigued and it comes in a good assortment of colours and is affordable enough that if I have to mix 2 colours, it'll still cost me less than a higher end foundation.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation* comes in 12 shades and is described as providing invisible, mistake proof skin, hydrates for 24 hours and reducing the appearance fo dark circles and pores.

Quite a lot of claims for a foundation! I'd be interested to see how this wears and how it lives up to all the claims.

I hope you found this guide useful and if you've used any of the foundations I've talked about, do let me know how they wear!
