Drug store brand comparable to Clinique?

I have been using Clinique makeup for several years, but I was wondering if there is a drug store brand comparable to it. I would like to save a little money on my makeup. The reason I have stuck with it this long is because I do have sensitive skin, and the Clinique is fragrance free. Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome!

What products are you specifically willing to replace? Because I might have ideas but in different brands, depending on the type of product you're looking for.
Let me know and I'll try to help!

I want to replace my foundation, powder, and maybe eyeliner. I buy mascara and eye shadow at other stores anyway.

Well, let's see... I think the best drugstore foundations are Revlon Color Stay, that you can find for any type of skin, or if you have oily skin and want a different texture, I like Maybelline DreamMatte a lot.

For the liners, if you like cream/gel liners, the l'Oreal hip ones are quite good; for liquid liner, Prestige works great.

About the powders I am not sure. I like the Maybelline DreamMatte powder, and sometimes I use a mineral foundation like the Maybelline one instead of powder.

I hope this helps!

I tend to spend more money on products that end up on my skin.
