4 Great Affordable Cruelty-Free Foundations

It can be tricky to find a good cruelty-free foundation that doesn’t cost a fortune so here are four great, affordable cruelty-free foundation options you can try.


NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation

The Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation is great for those with oily skin as it’s water-based so it gets rid of shine while remaining lightweight. 

It has buildable coverage which is great for creating a flawless look and is a steal, retailing for just €8. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Foundation

This is my personal favourite foundation. If you’ve ever tried the cult-favourite Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer then you’ll love the matching foundation. 

It provides buildable coverage but works best when a primer is used underneath. 

The only negative of this foundation is that it does oxidise a little, so if you’re purchasing it I would buy a shade lighter. 

Retailing for €8.49, I think it’s great value for the price.



Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation

The Revolution Conceal and Define foundation has been praised by many influencers and makeup artists and for good reason. 

The long-lasting foundation has a slightly glowy finish with full coverage flawless finish. 

It also has an amazing shade range with 50 shades to choose from, so there’s one to suit every skin tone. 

Retailing for just €10, this foundation is a must-try for those who love a flawless, full-coverage look. 


WetnWild Photofocus Foundation

This Wet n Wild foundation is perfect for those occasions when you know you’ll be getting your photo taken a lot. 

Boasting medium to full coverage, this foundation is great for those with oily and combination skin as it has decent staying power for the price, retailing for €6.99. 

Unfortunately, the shade range of this foundation has room for improvement as it doesn’t cater very well for those with a very light or dark skin tone. 



Have you tried any of these foundations? If so, what’s your favourite?
