With foundations like Kat Von D ‘Lock It’, Too Faced ‘Born This Way’ and Stila ‘Stay All Day’ killing it right now, budget beauty brands are upping their game.

I recently purchased the ‘Lock it Foundation’ and it is amazing. More amazing than a nice hot coffee after a total of 4 hours sleep. After using it every single day for one solid month, I looked at my near empty bottle and decided that it was not justifiable to wear such a pricey foundation just for simple every day wear. So I began a hunt for amazing budget foundations, and here is what I found.

Loreal Infalliable 24HR Stay Fresh Foundation

I have always been partial to the True Match but decided to give this one a go. It has an amazing full coverage, matches amazing to your skin tone and does not dry out or go shiny.

Rimmel Wake me up Foundation

This is the first time I tried this one and was pleasantly surprised. It had amazing lasting power, SPF 20 and I noticed that it did brighten where my dark circles appear.

Revlon Color Stay Foundation

I loved this foundation because I found it was the least pink based foundation of the three. It also has SPF 20, is incredibly long lasting, matched my skin tone perfectly and was not drying.

I also wanted to add that I have a VERY exciting new project in the works that will benefit just about anyone. If you’re curious as to what it may be make sure to subscribe to my emails on the right so that you are kept in the loop!
