Cushion foundations have been the main focus for the last couple of months (Read: We round up 11 latest cushion foundation & tell you who each of them is recommended for). We know, it’s not for everyone, and well, some of us just want an excuse to go shopping for more makeup. Here are some of our favourite non-cushion foundations (Psst… Some may even be your holy grail foundations that has gone for an upgrade!)
1 . Revlon ColorStay Makeup
One of the best and most popular drugstore foundations in the beauty community, the Revlon ColorStay Foundation is back with… A pump! The only gripe with the foundation before this relaunch was the packaging and now that it comes with a pump, it’s perfect!
It retails for SGD33.90 from Watsons, Gurdian and major departmental stores.
2. Chosungah22 Bounce Up Pact
You might think that the Chosungah22 Bounce Up Foundation is a cushion foundation. But it’s not! It’s a cream foundation that has a bouncy texture. Our editor really likes this product, and you can read her review on it here!
Chosungah22 products are available at Sasa stores at Tampines 1, Lot 1, Wisma Atria, Westgate, White Sands, Jurong Point, Waterway Point and Selectiv’ by Sasa (ION Orchard).
3. The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops
Sometimes we unintentionally purchase a foundation that might be a tad bit too dark or too light for our skin. Why let it go to waste when you can adjust the colour of it to make it match your skin? It’s possible to do that with The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops. It’s a handy product to have in your stash for the times when you need to either lighten or darken a foundation!
It retails at SGD29.90 from The Body Shop stores.
4. Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact
It’s always hard to touch up a liquid foundation because their packaging is bulky and heavy. Not only that, it might spill or leak out in your makeup bag, and that definitely will not be a good experience. The Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact is exactly what you think it is. It’s the Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Foundation, in a compact powder type packaging. How innovative!
The Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup To Go Liquid Compact is available in 11 shades, and is available at all Estee Lauder counters and boutique, at SGD68.
5. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation Stick
Yes, Make Up For Ever has launched their iconic Ultra HD foundation in a stick form! Clearly stick form products are making a comeback and we’ve rounded up the hottest and latest ones in our article: Makeup products in stick form are the hottest right now, and we share with you our favourite ones. Known to be the favourites of many YouTube makeup gurus, this foundation stick has amazing coverage, is easy to blend, and doesn’t feel cakey on the skin. While it’s marketed to be great for all skin types, Beauty enthusiasts who have tried this foundation recommends it to people who have more dry skin.
The Make Up For Ever foundation stick is available at Sephora ION and Ngee Ann City and at the Make Up For Ever Pro Loft.
6. Cover FX Custom Cover Drops
The Cover FX Custom Cover Drops is also a relatively new product in Singapore that retails at SGD71. It’s only available online at sephora.sg. It’s a bottle of pure foundation pigment that you can use on its own mixed with a moisturiser or serum, to add more coverage to an existing foundation, or to alter the colour of an existing foundation. Be careful, because this stuff is concentrated and highly pigmented! A little goes a long way. It’s also available in 24 shades so you’ll definitely find one that suits your skin tone!
7. Revlon Colorstay 2-in-1 Makeup and Concealer
Don’t you just hate it when you have to bring two separate products for touch ups or for travel? Well, with the new Revlon ColorStay 2-in-1 Makeup & Concealer you’ll only need to bring just one! This product has a cream foundation that provides a satin matte finish, and a matched concealer to go along with it. Just like its original counterpart in #1, it’s formulated to stay throughout the day, even in humid weather just like Singapore’s. It retails for SGD30.90 and is available at Watsons, Guardian and major departmental stores.
