The Best Drugstore Foundation, According To Math

emb 1.55.20 PM
Foundation is notorious for being the priciest beauty product. Hey, we want something that's going to match our skin tone, give us full coverage, and help the rest of our makeup look flawless (whether it be our eyeshadow or contouring palettes). But, we're going to let you in on a little secret: Not all foundations need to break the bank. To find one that's effective and doesn't cost a ton of cash, we turned to our pals at Rank & Style.
The site uses customer reviews, editor picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you, without bruising your bank account. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup as the crème de la crème.

According to the site, L'Oreal came out on top because of its popularity and user reviews. And, of course, the customers are always right. On Ulta, user EmzArt writes, "I have been waiting all my life for this product!" It's no wonder: True Match contains zero oil or pore-clogging fillers, and blends to a smooth finish.
So, if you're gearing up for fall, and your plans include picking up a new foundation, go ahead and skip the makeup counter. Your new favorite bottle may be hiding out in your drugstore aisle — grab it next time you're popping out for body lotion...or toilet paper.
