    Pale Drugstore Foundation with Yellow Undertone Searched !!!!!!

    Hello Lovelies

    I am really pale but have a yellow undertone and i just can find any Drugstore Foundation that fits me .

    I've tryed a lot of different Brands and Shades but the pale foundations are usually to rosy and the yellow undertoned foundations are way to dark .

    I would love to hear if someone has the same problem and if you guys have found a solution .

    xoxo Serpentis

    Hey Serpentis, I'm not entirely sure of a very pale yellow-toned drugstore foundation but if you're willing to go online, you can definitely find some great foundations for drugstore or close to drugstore prices.

    Graftobian Hi-Definition Creme Foundation is really nice for dry to combo skin and it comes in a ton of very light and very dark shades. They recently came out with 5 new shades for very fair skin with warm and neutral undertones.

    Camera Ready Cosmetics is a trusted retailer and they sell Graftobian, along with a bunch of other theatrical makeup brands. Theatrical makeup can be a great option when you're looking for hard to find shades at good prices.

    I hope I haven't failed you on your original question! =)

    Boots No7's foundations supposedly run yellow. L'Oreal True Match W1 is fairly light. Maybelline Fit Me's shades ending in "0" are more yellow-based, and #110 is very fair.

    Ohhh another question i had was if you know how the Maybelline Superstay 24 h , the Dream Satin Liquid and the
    Maybelline Pure Liquid Mineral Foundation work and how they fell on the skin ?????

    Hopefully I hear of you pretty soon

    I've never tried either of those, so I can't say.

    I actually just bought some and i have the same exact problem! Im sooo pale , but all the light foundations have pink undertones and it makes me look sick
    The foundation i got from CVS is-
    ~maybelline's FIT ME in 110
    ~i also got the light pink blush in the FIT ME line

    Ive already had so many complements while wearing these two so i hope that helps and they're really cheap ^_^

    I've been to 2 Targets in my area lately and they've both started carrying Boots. I live in Texas btw.

    Funny thing, I'm a NC25/30 and I'm pretty much on the same search!! I used this http://www.temptalia.com/foundation-matrix earlier and i found that it's pretty helpful on getting started. Good luck!!

    jessykah thank you for you tip ... i saw the maybelline fit me foundations but i wasn't sure if they would look good on my skin. but after you told me that it worked well for you i will definentely check it out .

    P.s.: do you know if this foundation does start to settle into fine lines after a while? because i always get this problems on my forehead and around my mouth because i just smile a lot . i mean i am only 18 so it really bothers me that i look older because foundation that makes those lines apear sooo deep . i dont have those lines if i don't wear foundation but on some days you just want to have some coverage .

    I've never had that problem with Fit Me and I'm in my early 30s.
