Best Drugstore Foundations For Indian Skin – My Pick!

Makeup has magical powers to make you look beautiful and give you a confidence in a jiffy. A makeup can look on point if you have the right foundation that matches your skin, hides your skin imperfection and of course, brings the glow. We just can’t ignore how important a foundation is in our life.

But all of us struggle to get the right foundation, especially that matches your skin tone! So to help you girls pick the right foundation based on your skin types and needs, I bring top 7 foundations that I totally adore. Check them out:

1. Lotus Herbal Natural Blend Comfort Liquid Foundation SPF 20- Rs. 345


This first in my list had to be an herbal product, and this amazing foundation with broad spectrum is all that you need for the summer! The foundation is formulated with Grape Seed & Soy Lecithin & Jojoba that would protect your skin as well as bring a glow that you need.

The foundation is waterproof and doesn’t clog the pores. It gives a perfect coverage and due to its ingredients, it is safe for all skin types. The only con is that it comes in only 3 different shades.

P.S – the price is a steal!

2. Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation- Rs. 525

There are conceptions that a drugstore foundation wouldn’t work like a high-end foundation. To end these conceptions, Maybelline came up with its latest and amazing Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation, and girls I need to tell you this is a catch.

This foundation is a holy grail product for oily skin, it is an oil free foundation that doesn’t clog the pores, gives a dewy finish and gives the perfect photo finish look! It has a lightweight formula which is easy to build up, you get the perfect coverage and yes all your flaws vanish in no time! I totally recommend this baby to all.

3. Revlon Colorstay Makeup For Combination/Oily Skin- Rs. 875

Looking for a long wear, buildable and high coverage foundation? Then go for this high-performance foundation from Revlon. It glides onto the skin like a dream, controls excessive oil and gives a matte finish.

The good thing about this foundation is that it doesn’t clog the pores nor gives a cakey finish.  Due to its long lasting effect, this product is perfect for brides, working women, models.

4. L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation- Rs. 825 


The next high-performance drugstore foundation for Indian skin tone is the L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation. It is infused with the goodness of Vitamin E, glycerin and guess what it is oil free- perfect for summer.

If you have uneven skin tone, acne or any skin imperfections, this foundation is your savior. You get a complete airy finish and the best part is here- it doesn’t dry out your skin!

Tip- use a damp beauty blender for a dewy finish.

5. Colorbar Perfect Match Foundation- Rs. 580


This is the perfect foundation for girls who spend maximum time outdoors. The foundation has UV filter that will protect your skin from sun damage, also it is a nongreasy product so goodbye oiliness. Also, it has a matte finish, hides imperfections and perfect for all skin type.

The only issue with this foundation is that it comes in only 3 shades so it can be difficult to find the perfect shade for your skin tone!

6. NYX Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation-Rs 900 for 35 ml

Next is this drool worthy foundation from NYX that stays flat but not flat (how cool is the name). True to its name, the foundation gives a matte finish, doesn’t cake out and as it has oil free and water based formula, it is the perfect foundation for summer.

It gives you a full coverage, which lasts for 6-7 hours and yes it would suit all skin type. You can get it easily on Nykaa- go shop!

7. Revlon Nearly Naked- Rs. 750



Don’t we all want the perfect, luminous skin? Revlon Nearly Naked is the one go-to foundation that has a light formula, medium coverage and perfect for everyday look. Also for the price, I think this foundation is a steal! Damp your brush and then apply this foundation and voila, you get the perfect glowing skin that you dreamt of.
