Best Foundations in Ireland Under €15

Growing up I always used Loreal, Maybelline, Rimmel and other amazing affordable brands and it looks like everyone else in Ireland has too. Maybe after reading this blog you will see your favourite foundation or maybe a new one you would like to try.

1. Essence stay all day 16hr long-lasting make up. €4.79


I have talked about this foundation before in my Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation V Essence Sat All Day 16hr long- lasting make-up Foundation Blog. I love this foundation and I am not surprised it’s on of the best sellers in Ireland. It lasts so long, sits so beautifully on the skin, It’s full coverage but doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It’s the favourite among low-budget markets which is basically teenagers and students.

2. Catrice Even Skin Tone Beautifying Foundation €8.50


I love Catrice because when I wanted make-up but didn’t have a crazy budget I knew Catrice would always be there for me. This foundation is full coverage pigmentation, irregularities and redness. This is more on the matt finish side so would be great for make-up users with oily to combination skin type.

3. Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation €10.49


I like this foundation, I have used it for years if I’m on the market for a new foundation but don’t know what to buy I will 9 times out of 10 get this one. It says its full coverage but I don’t think so but it is buildable and with another layer you get that full coverage look without looking cakey.

4. Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid €11.99


I have heard so many great things about this foundation, it is the best for variety of shades with the most out of any “drug store” foundations with a whopping 22 shades!! It’s an air whipped foundation , full coverage and pore minimizing formula. It’s Ideal for normal skin, Oil-free, fragrance-free, Dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic – won’t clog pores, safe for sensitive skin.

5. Bourjois Healthy Mix €12.99


This foundation smells so good and fruity. It helps even out your complexion and brings a natural radiance to your skin. It’s a long-lasting foundation, lasts up to 16 hours. It has three fruits within the foundation that make it smell amazing and help you skin.

  • Apricot for radiance
  • Melon for hydration
  • Apple to protect your youth


6. L’Oreal True Match €14.99

I tried this foundation for the first time in summer 2016. I was having a hard time finding a foundation that wouldn’t just sit on my skin, so a friend recommended this foundation, I got it and fell in love. It matched me perfectly but it would be hard not to find the right shade with 21 shades available. It’s medium coverage with the opportunity to build. It includes both yellow and pink toned foundations.It gives my skin such a nice natural glow.
