For all of you drugstore beauty buyers, there's another foundation that should be on your radar - Maybelline Fit Me! Liquid SPF 18 Foundation.
This foundation provides soft, dewy light-medium coverage, and covers minor blemishes and discoloration well. The formula is moisturizing without creating additional oiliness. It also had great staying power - the color and coverage stayed true all day (even without a primer), which was impressive as well.
Top that off with a pretty good shade range (I used Coconut 355), and the fact that the foundation also features an SPF of 18 and you've got one of the best drugstore foundations out there right now. I applied this with fingers, foundation brush (my preferred method with this formula) as well as a cosmetic sponge and loved the results - as its a very creamy, blendable formula. The foundation felt very lightweight on my skin (that "no-makeup" feel), and has a nice fresh scent as well.
Because of the dewy finish, this will be best for normal, combination and dry skin - if you have very oily skin, you may not like the effect. The one product packaging feature you should be aware of is that this is in a glass bottle, and does need to be poured for application (no pump). If this is a problem for you I recommend transferring to a plastic pump bottle for easier application.
This is a drugstore gem that you should explore - it's a great foundation - not just a great drugstore foundation! - RLB
