    Which Cheap face foundation 1st Sep 17 at 10:38 AM
    In a bid to save some pennies want to look at a cheaper foundation. While the one I use isn't that expensive-no 7-I know there are supermarket brands but I have not tried them. I am v fair skinned and have dry skin so any of the powder types are no good

    I am using a super cheap one at the moment. Its silicone based which suits me better than a water based foundation.



    Its normally priced at just under £7 but i got it even cheaper than that.

    I've not tried it myself but loads of people (bloggers through to people apparently in-the-know) talk highly about the Bourjois Health Mix foundation.


    I still rate the L'Oreal Lumi but only when its on offer! I suppose it depends on what you're looking for.

    I use the Bourjois Healthy Mix and it is very good, but I wouldn't say it was cheap (think I paid about £11 several moths ago).

    This Satin Liquid foundation by Maybelline is good for dry skin. You can usually get it from Superdrug & Boots for under £10.

    I use Healthy Mix and usually buy when it's on offer, I use the one with serum.
    I only ever tried No 7 once and it oxidised really badly.

    It'd be great to hear how you get on -I know different people need and want different things from foundations (anti-aging, pigmentation issues, evening skin texture...etc) and that there are different skin types (dry, oily, dehydrated, sensitive...etc) but it's always interesting and potentially helpful to hear how others opinions and what worked or didn't.
