Budget Foundation – Dark Skin

Being someone of darker skin, high street / drugstore foundations can often be challenging. This is of course frustrating as I don’t always want to spend loads on foundation.

However, I have found two that are almost identical and suit my skin perfectly.They are Revlon Colorstay in Caramel (£12.99) and Rimmel Match Perfection in Mocha (£7.99).


Both have got medium to full coverage and are a really good match for me. As you can see below you can barely tell them apart (Revlon on top).


On my skin they are hard to tell apart so I have only taken a photo of the Revlon – but trust me even I can’t tell the difference! This is just the foundation with some blush, eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick, no concealed or powder.


Apologies for the errant hair from my makeup brush on my forehead!!



I love the finish of these two foundations and their lasting power is pretty good too. Very happy with these drugstore options for darker skin.
