My new favourite foundations?

February 18, 2017


I have recently been on the hunt for a good drugstore foundation, that was good coverage, bendable, and just overall good value for money. After pondering a lot over which foundation would be best for me, I came across two which I have grown to absolutely love. The two foundations I’ve picked are quite hyped over at the moment- and I know why!

First up is my favourite out of the two (but it was a close call), and it’s the L’Oreal Infallible. This foundation is amazing if you’re looking for a high coverage foundation from the drugstore, which is also reasonably priced. It retails at £9.99 and I definitely prefer it over the L’Oreal ‘True Match’ (I wasn’t a fan of that foundation unfortunately, so this one feels like a breath of fresh air).


I chose the foundation in the shade ‘015 porcelain’ which is perfect for my naturally pale skin tone. Normally I struggle when it comes to finding a good foundation that matches my (extremely) pale face, but I have found that L’Oreal are perfect for that.

Next up is the ‘Bourjois’ Healthy Mix foundation. This is another foundation that a lot of people recommended to me when I asked on Twitter for good foundation recommendations, and it certainly did not disappoint. Although it isn’t as high coverage as my L’Oreal Infallible foundation, it is still pretty good coverage for the price. The foundation normally retails at £9.99, but I got it on a special offer in Superdrug for £7.99. If you’re out and about in Superdrug and you come across this offer, I would defiantly invest. I have never tried any Bourjois products before, so I was pleasantly surprised over the qualify of this foundation.


Out of the two, I thought this would be the one that was either too dark for my skin, or not as good coverage as I had hoped. However, I couldn’t be more wrong. I normally find that some foundations make me look completely white and wash out even the small bit of natural ‘tan’ I have on my face, but this is the best shade that I have found so far to suit my skin tone.


Overall, I am throughly impressed with these two foundations. I have found that they do stay on longer than a lot of my other foundations, blend nicely and have high coverage which is always a bonus. Mixing it in with my ‘Seventeen’ liquid highlighter also adds a ‘dewy’ look to both foundations which is my all time favourite ‘go-to’ for a night out.

  1. I may have to invest in these two foundations. Need a new foundation but i’m never too sure to try a new one as I literally only use the Rimmel wake me up foundation! Will give these a go though! great post girl xxx

  2. I love the healthy mix serum and I use the matte version of the L’Oréal one and they’re two of my top foundations I own. So good!! Might have to try these two after your review x

  3. I’ve never tried either of these foundations, but I think I’d really like the Healthy Mix! After reading this I think I’ll definitely have to give it a go x

  4. Great post!
    I use to use the Bourjous Healthy Mix when the packaging was different but the colour was a bitime off for me. I did like the formula though.

    I haven’t tried the L’Oréal one, I’ve been meaning to go out and grab one. I like L’Oréal True Match though.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Will be trying these. I use Estee Lauder doublewear at the moment but it can be a bit heavy for everyday use (although it’s amazing for covering my dark circles!)

  6. Its so hard to find a perfect foundation! I always feel like I get sucked into paying more for designer brands at Sephora…but after reading this I’m convinced I should give drugs stores a chance again! Thanks for the awesome review!

  7. I haven’t tried either of these, and also find it difficult to match one with my pale skin without looking washed out. Always on the lookout for a foundation that’s lasts and looks as natural as possible, so will have to give both a try. The cost is pretty decent too! Thanks and great post!
