Foundation question

Hi I just joined the group! I have used the mineral foundation from Lancôme for years...before that I used Estée Lauder cream foundation and the liquid foundation from Clinique. My Lancôme is almost finished, and wanted something new. Basically I don't need heavy coverage, especially with the weather getting warmer. Are there any drugstore brands you ladies have tried? Or any products that work well? Thanks for reading!

I don't know about drugstore brands but I have been using Bare Minerals powder foundation for about 8 years and it is amazing. I will never use another foundation so long as this is available.

Everything lol! It only takes a small amount to give great coverage. It is so light you don't even feel like you are wearing anything. On those crazy hot days when liquid foundation would be melting down your neck this stuff does not budge. Seriously, there is nothing I don't like about it. I've tried a few other powder foundations over the years and none of them are as wonderful as this stuff. I know I have rambled on about this foundation before but I can't say enough good things about it. It is perfect!

I live in the tropics, so I use a tinted moisturizer with SPF when I want to look a bit more neater but not use foundation. I have all sorts of foundations (liquid, mineral, powder), it really depends on my mood, how much time I have, and my skin condition.

I use Avon's Smooth Minerals too! Love it. Even though I sell Avon, I also love Mary Kay's tinted Moisturizer. They are both great products!
