The One Makeup Product You Should Never Buy At The Drugstore, According To A Beauty Exec

August 25, 2016 by Caroline Pirozzolo

While the drugstore is a great place to score beauty finds that won’t break the bank, much like with your closet, it’s never a bad idea to have a mix of high and low products in your arsenal. Drugstore brands are great for some products, but others will always be worth the splurge. So what’s the one product that you should always avoid buying at the drugstore and splurge on instead?

According to Erica Russo, Fashion Director, Accessories and Cosmetics at Bloomingdales, a good foundation is always worth investing in.

“One beauty product every woman should splurge on is her foundation,” Russo says. “Finding a foundation that works for your skin type and tone may take some effort, but once you find your match, it’s the one beauty product that can transform the look of your skin in an instant. Make sure to purchase a foundation that contains SPF and added skin care benefits, like anti-aging properties, to help protect while creating that flawless finish every girl craves.”

As for a splurge-worthy foundation, Russo recommends Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF 20 ($62), which provides medium coverage with a matte finish and SPF to protect your skin throughout the day.

While there are some seriously amazing drugstore products out there, it makes sense that a product like foundation – which sits on your skin all day and creates a base for the rest of your makeup – is worth investing in!
