  • Almay Truly Lasting Liquid Makeup

    This is a really good drugstore foundation. It is supposed to last a full 16 hours, and it does a fair job at holding up but it never lasts me quite that long. I can get through most 8 hour school days without touch-ups. I wear it in Ivory 120 and the color evens out my skin tone perfectly. The makeup is a bit watery in my opinion, but the coverage is fairly buildable. You won't get absolute, full coverage because it just isn't thick enough. Expect sheer to medium coverage. This foundation does not make me break out or get oily, but it does leave a dewy finish so I wear powder over it. The SPF 15 is an added bonus.The price is great for the amount of product you get - a whole fluid ounce! I like the pump applicatior, it's a sanitary innovation.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer

    This is the best drugstore concealer I have tried yet. Before I picked my shade, I looked up reviews to see which ones to avoid. The color I would have picked, C1-2-3, was reported as being "too pink" so I picked N1-2-3. This shade hides redness and my dark undereyes perfectly, but it enhances the appearance of my blemishes (hence the 8 out of 10 rating.) The formula is very light and it goes on easily, but that's also because it has a wonderful brush applicator. This product does match my regular skin tone very well, but does not do much to hide zits. For me, it stays on all day where I've used it to hide redness but it fades away under my eyes. All in all, it's a good, cheap drugstore concealer that's especially useful for those without acne problems.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture SPF 15
    7.0

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture SPF 15

    It's okay, just not for me.

    This product's moisturizing properties work fine and the SPF is great. It feels light when applied, dries quickly, and can be worn under makeup. Even though this moisturizer is oil-free, it isn't quite suitable for very oily skin like mine. Chances are, you won't become a greaseball by switching to this from a moisturizer containing oil. However, you will still look shiny by the end of the day.

  • CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder, Oil Control

    This is my favorite drugstore pressed powder yet. I love it because it's so simple: the packaging is clean cut, the formula is very lightweight, and the coverage isn't too heavy. The shade I use is Classic Ivory 510 and the color matches my skin tone very well. It goes on lightweight and it doesn't make me feel like I'm wearing much makeup at all, even when I've packed it over my foundation. It provides sheer coverage, so if you have blemishes, dark undereye circles, or other problem areas, make sure your foundation or concealer covers that up. This powder will stay on all day and come off easily when washed off. The oil control feature this powder uses is the microsponge system, which has proven to work on me with a different product. However, I haven't noticed much of an effect in this product, which is why I gave it 7 stars. Some people have had issues with the packaging of this makeup but I really love it. It never comes open in my purse, so there are no spills. The value for the amount of powder you get is very good. I am planning on switching to the Sensitive Skin formula on this same line.
