What are some nice drugstore or drugstore priced make up brands.

I'm really really want to purchase SheaMoisture make up and I don't even know if it's good or not. It just looks pretty.
I believe the SheaMoisture brand will be in the drug store price range but until then what are some decent drugstore make up options.


I was looking into foundation sticks .

I just ran out of Mac Skinfinish or whatever it was...
I want something like that

I use elf hd powder

it's good and under $10

I don't mind spending up to $45 on makeup so I tried pricey brands and still like elf better

hey jones...i use loreal true match powder in place of mac skin finish.  it can go a tad more opaque if you apply with a heavy hand.  but i use this brursh (for both) which applys very sheerly and evenly...

What is the powder for ?
Does it give a matte like finsh?


I need to re up on makeup and I don't think I've found the right one for me.
I honestly don't want to spend more than 25 -30 bucks on a foundation .

But I will have to go to more work/school events this year and I don't want a shiny greasy face.

Revlon Colorstay is the only drug store foundation that worked for me but the color selection sucks. Iman has a nice color selection but didn't work on my oily skin.

the hd powder is a setting powder

I apply after I put on my foundation

I use N100 by CoverFX ($44)

a little goes a long way and it is a good match for my skin tone

I also don't need to use conclear when I use it

that loreal powder behaves very much like mac skin finish, imo.  it mattifies (sp) and kind of makes everything else (blush ect ect) look air brushed and pulled together.  i think it is about $8 and that brush is around the same... 

it can also be built up if you are going for more coverage...which i rarely do...but i would suggest a finishing spray if you go that route (i use mac...its ok...but i'm looking for a good drug store alternative)...tone down the powdery look right after applying, which will tone down anyway over time...but you may not want to walk out the door looking powder/casket/ready..lol
