A good foundation can be so tricky to find, let alone a good drugstore foundation. Over the years I’ve spent time and money trying to invest in foundations that would combat my oily skin, offer enough coverage, and give a natural finish. I either found drugstore foundations to have minimal coverage or have way too much coverage that it looked cakey, but either way, left my skin looking oily. I’ve finally come up with my top three best drugstore foundations for oily skin.

If you’ve read my post on drugstore beauty products, then you know how much I rave about this foundation. I can easily call this my ride or die foundation as I’ve been using it for years. This foundation blends so flawlessly by melting into my skin that it’s impossible to believe that it’s less than $10! I especially love this foundation because it starts off as medium coverage but can build to full coverage to conceal any dark spots. It unique has a matte, satin finish, but it not greasy at all.
NYX products honestly never disappoint me. This foundation blends super evenly and with minimal effort. I also love that it has a pump to control how much product comes out at once. This foundation is full coverage and dries to a matte finish. I’ve worn this NYX foundation all day through blood, sweat, and tears (literally) and it stayed on as matte as when I applied it! It retails for less than $20, which is a steal of a deal.
This foundation is another full coverage that is lightweight and doesn’t leave a cakey finish. A little goes a super long way and looks so natural on my skin. I buy this in matte due to my oily skin and I honestly can attest to the 24-hour wear. After my 16-hour shift, my face had no sign of oiliness! I was amazed because no foundation for me has ever stayed that matte for that amount of time.
