7. Lasts All Day: BareMinerals BarePRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20
The most impressive and unusual thing about this 24-hour long-wear foundation is that it’s formulated with papaya enzymes to exfoliate and smooth your skin while you’re wearing it.
This means that when you get home from a long day at work and you finally clean off the foundation from your face, your skin actually has the potential to look better.
“I am really enjoying this foundation. I have finicky skin so I struggle to find a foundation that works for me. I would call this medium to full coverage. I can see my imperfections through it with one thin layer. I find this to look quite natural. The finish is quite matte on me but not dry. It dries down really fast but blends quickly. […] This foundation lasts all day on me and doesn’t get oily. I love that it has a pump.” wrote Meena Thyagaraj while reviewing the product on her blog ‘Makeup and Meena’.
6. Lasts All Day: L’Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation
This oil-free foundation claims to be able to keep a dewy look on your face for 24 hours. And if this is not enough to make you hit ‘click’ and purchase the product online, maybe the following statement will: this $11 drugstore staple is a must-have for Sir John, Beyonce’s makeup artist. Yes, you read that correctly: the man that does Queen Bey’s makeup loves and uses this foundation.
But let’s see what regular people think about this beauty product, too. “For some reason, I cannot explain, I thought this foundation wasn’t going to live up to its name. Oh, how wrong I was!!! Yes, it has been out for a long time and I have only just purchased the product a few weeks ago. I will never listen to my makeup intuition again! This is by far the best ‘drug-store’ foundation I have ever used.” shared a user (rachel.tindale) on ‘Beauty Heaven’.
