In a dream world, we’d be able to snap our fingers to smooth our complexion, but until then, the best drugstore foundation is here to help bring us one step closer to a real-life Paris filter. Because while we could use Dior and Giorgio Armani all day, every day, the cost of luxury makeup isn’t always feasible—especially if you’re simultaneously working on upgrading a multi-step skincare routine.
Drugstore foundations—while much, much better than the ones from even five years ago—are tough to navigate without being able to swatch in-store. Who wants to buy something without knowing how it applies, dries down, and wears for eight hours? Luckily, there’s word of mouth, and if you ask any Glamour staffer about these 17 budget-friendly favorites, they’ll convince you to try them in a heartbeat. With nothing over $15, why not? Scroll on for the best drugstore foundation in the game.
