Medium / Buildable Coverage Drugstore Foundations

Top 10 Drugstore Foundations You'll Want to Buy by Houston beauty blogger Meg O. on the Go

L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup // This is honestly in my top three! There are so many different shades, and this can be worn completely sheered out or built up! It’s also suitable for so many different skin types.

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup // This is a great drugstore foundation for dry skin. Not sure if my oily girls will love it. It’s very luminous and about medium coverage. If you saw my full face of makeup dupes video, this is a dupe for the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation!

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation // Such a gorgeous foundation! If you’re looking for something medium coverage with a natural finish (and something that stays put!), this is your best best.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation // I would say that this foundation is more of a medium coverage and can be built to full. It really does have great coverage but can also be sheered out if need be. Also stays put really well!

Wet ‘n Wild Photo Focus Foundation // This is the least expensive foundation out of the bunch and it’s so beautiful! It has buildable coverage, looks amazing on any skin type, and also stays put in the heat!

Full Coverage Drugstore Foundations


Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation // Out of all the full coverage drugstore foundations on this list, I truly believe that this is the best drugstore foundation for acne. It is just gorgeous on the skin and is not too heavy at all.

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation // This is a very full coverage foundation, but does seem to have a pretty natural/satin finish. I love mixing this with other foundations as well. I would say that this is the best drugstore foundation for oily skin, for sure!

L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation // This one has the highest coverage out of all the foundations on this list. It is no joke! But I do feel like it holds up well and can also be sheered out if you need it to be.

Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation // This is a medium-full coverage foundation and has such a natural finish. It’s totally buildable and holds up great.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation // I have been loving this foundation for years, and it only felt right to include it on this list. It is one of my OG favorite foundations. Some have compared this to Estee Lauder Double Wear, and I have to say that I think it’s very similar!
