Drug Store Brand Foundation for Dark Skin.

Hi there,

As you know… in darkskin (lol), in the recent years I’ve become a little intrigued by makeup. Years ago you would not catch me in anything other than chapstick (walking around with dry lips is not what’s up). These days it rare I leave the house without having on eyeliner at the least. 

Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t wear a full face daily, actually I only wear a full face onthe weekend. If I happen to wear a full face during the week it would have to be a special occasion, such as school pictures, graduation(I’m a preschool teacher) or I’m going somewhere right after work (which is rare). 

When I first got into makeup a few years ago I was all about Mac. Everything was Mac as time went on I started using other brands… I purchased cheaper shadows and lipsticks but stuf with higher end foundations. This was at a time when I wore a full face maybe 2 times a month.

Now that I’m doing my full face makeup more often I wanted to try new things. I decided to look into drug store brands. I ran into a few speed bumps because it was very hard to find my complexion but finally I scored some at Walmart.


Here are my swatches:

As you can see some were lighter, some were darker and some were very close. I think I can work with all but one. All in all. I think I will find my drug store staple!

Check out my video of me swatching these colors

  1. I’ve been really liking the Maybelline Fit Me. See, it’s great seeing these shades, but it’s annoying when drugstores don’t carry the full range. I also hate when people say stores stock to the demographic of the area, because if that were true there would be many many more darker shades where I live lol.
