The Best Drugstore Foundations for Oily Skin

by - Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Drugstore foundations for oily skin can be difficult to find, but I've found five keepers that I absolutely love.

No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation
This foundation comes in a mousse-like form, so not only is it lightweight, it's also mattifying. A lightweight mattifying foundation is hard to find as they're mostly medium coverage or don't appear matte at all so I'm definitely loving this!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Gel Serum Foundation
This foundation comes in the form of a gel, so it makes the perfect foundation for oily skin as it doesn't feel too heavy on the skin, despite it being buildable. It comes in a regular pump foundation container, but is thin enough for travel purposes. It's also light coverage, which may put many of you off, but I prefer a lighter coverage when my skin isn't acting up.

The Body Shop Matte Clay Foundation 
This foundation is my absolute drugstore favorite. It doesn't really count as drugstore as you can only buy it at The Body Shop, but it's around that same price (at $16). It has a lot of mattifying skincare properties, such as clay, and it is lightweight so it practically feels like nothing. It does come in a squeezable tube, which makes it quite handy for travel.

L'oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation
This foundation is the most drugstore as it gets-selling at $7.99 and it's a pretty great foundation for oily foundation. It does mattify a bit, but doesn't make you look too flat. It comes in a tube, so it's handy for travel as well.

CYO Lifeproof Foundation
This is the best actual drugstore foundation I've ever tried and I'm slightly upset that they have decided to discontinue CYO. It's got a pump foundation container, so it might not be the most travel friendly, but the fact that it feels so lightweight and cruelty free makes up for that.

What are your favorite drugstore foundations for oily skin?
