If I didn't have an oily complexion, Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup in Buff ($12.99) would be my new favorite foundation.

But seeing as I'm stuck with the skin I've got, I'm going to have to regretfully leave this fabulous product to those with normal-to-dry skin. Those lucky ladies better listen up!

Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup in Buff provides extremely natural-looking medium coverage with a gorgeous, dewy finish. I was SO excited when I first applied it -- I don't think I've found a more luminous looking drugstore foundation before. It masks pores well and includes SPF 20 for great daily sun protection.

The shade "Buff" is a light, warm-toned beige that looks very yellow when swatched. I thought it would be too warm for me, but it actually blends out well and meshes with my nearly neutral, slightly golden light skin perfectly.

While it looks good at first and the coverage doesn't fade, my face gets overwhelmingly shiny within 2-3 hours. Blotting and powder are no match for my oily pores. Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup is designed to be a hydrating foundation (it's water-based) and, sadly, the moisture is just too much for me.

Bottom Line: Almay Wake Up Liquid Makeup in Buff is a high-quality, affordable foundation that just doesn't work with my oily skin type. If you don't have oily skin, I definitely recommend that you check this one out and flaunt the glowing, healthy-looking skin that this product provides!

What's your favorite drugstore foundation?
