* Excuse the bad photo (hoping for new lighting from santa and natural light is a no go right now)
When ever I go to the supermarket I am always fascinated by their home brand make up, but with more selection than ever right now I tried three and thought I would give you my opinion on them all. Purchasing these budget foundations is great if you're on a budget but with so many great drug store bases you want to get the best quality for what you're spending.
1. GEORGE AT ASDA SUPER BOOST FOUNDATION (£6) -
I would like to start but telling you that I am rather fickle. George has released a number of foundation formula's recently but I picked this one up as it looked like another of my favourite foundations (here)
. I love the frosted glass packaging and the fact it comes with a pump is a huge wow factor for me... but, I wasn't a fan of the formula. I feel my heavy based 15 year old self would have loved this foundation but now I found it too thick and heavy on the skin. I would describe this as a satin finish foundation so great for those with an oilier complexion. Overall, I wasn't a huge fan of this foundation but loved the packaging.
2. MAKE UP GALLERY AT POUND LAND GORGEOUS FOUNDATION (£1) - I have been known to suggest spending more on your foundation in the past but hold your horses! Before skipping down to Space NK why not try this new foundation from Pound Land. Usually where one goes to buy their sweet fix this beyond budget foundation is actually alright. Ok, it doesn't rival some of my favourite bases but it is incredibly good value for money. The creamy formula is easy to apply with fingers or a brush and left a light, dewy finish that gently covered any blemishes. I found the shade selection to match my pallid skin tone perfectly and have a decent lasting power. I was so sceptical (snobby) about how a £1 foundation could possibly be more than a tube of tinted water but really it is good. Perfect for those new to makeup.
3. BD MAKE-UP AT TESCO MOISTURE FOUNDATION (£5.60) - I used to use this foundation when I was in sixth form and decided to see if i lived up to my memories. I have to say I LOVE this product, the bottle looks sleek and classy and not at all out of place next to more expensive products in my stash! I wish it came with a pump but that can be forgiven I am sure! The formula is a light to medium coverage which is easily blended to give a natural flawless foundation. It is incredibly hydrated and leaves skin glowing and perfected all day. I find that I do need to lightly powder this foundation but it is a great every day base - that I love.
