Drugstore Matte Foundations – REVIEW

This is the blog as promised to accompany my latest video, if you have any questions afterwards please feel free to ask, preferably on youtube or twitter (@msbudgetbeauty) for a speedy response
NYC Natural Matte £2.99
good coverage, good colour match, doesn’t stay matte well, goes patchy and sinks into pores over time also made me break out!
3/10
Rimmel Stay Matte £5.99
i just couldn’t get this to work for me, perhaps it’s the application, went on matte straight away but dried instantly so very difficult to blend, also made me break out!
4/10
misssporty So Matte £2.99
sheer coverage but you can build it up, stays matte for around 5 or 6 hours and doesn’t go patchy, doesn’t set though so can be rubbed off accidentally.
7/10
Natural Collection Shine Away£1.99
terrible (for me) i could not blend this as hard as i tried it was so thick and totally patchy, couldn’t manage to get it to look right even once.
0/10
2true Smooth Matte £1.95
same as natural collection, couldnt blend, couldnt get an even coverage even once enough to really review how well it stays matte. no good for me!
0/10
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse £6.99
This was my absolute favourite! it’s very much like a blendable powder, it’s not wet or sticky it just goes on really smooth and stays matte nicely, even when i did get a little shiny it just gave a nice glowy look.
10/10
this is what the swatches i took in the video looked like after 10 mins… as you can see some set and dried a lot darker than they seemed in the tube… others just stayed wet… which isn’t really ideal for a MATTE product?!?
SWATCHES ARE IN ORDER AS ABOVE!
