Finding the perfect foundation can be a frustrating (and sometimes expensive experience). It can be too cakey, ends up highlighting your flaws rather than airbrushing them, and then later come off your face in hours. Well, TikTok helped thousands of people find a foundation that’s worth adding to your cart — and it’s budget-friendly.

You’ve probably seen the Maybelline FitMe Matte + Poreless Foundation on drugstore shelves over the years, and this classic is absolutely worth it, according to TikTok beauty gurus.

And if you need another reason to buy it, Adriana Lima adores the brand, and even used this foundation to achieve her Met Gala look in 2017, per New Beauty.

The FitMe foundation usually goes for $6 (a true steal!), and there are more than 35 shades to browse, so you’ll be able to find the right shade for your skin tone. The shades vary in price, so there’s a chance your discount might not be as steep as others, but you’ll still get a deal.

And if you’re skeptical of TikTok reviewers, Amazon buyers are also a big fan of this liquid foundation. With more than 117,000 ratings and 4.5 stars, this is one of the most beloved foundations on all of Amazon.

“I’ve been using this foundation for a little over a year now, and I absolutely love it,” An Amazon reviewer wrote. “It provides a natural, full coverage, and you only need to apply a small amount. I have oily, sensitive skin, and this has never caused me to break out even if I leave it on for an evening workout session.”

Another shopper said they found their “perfect color match,” after using this, saying, “For me this is the only foundation (since high school 10+ years of use) with a perfect color match… This is the most reliable, long wear and safe foundation I’ve ever owned for my skin. I never have to worry about breaking out (combination/oily skin).”

“Paired this foundation with elf putty primer and it works like a dream. I have combination skin and this gives me a smooth surface to work with. Lasts a good 10-12 hours,” another Amazon shopper gushed.

This oil-free foundation blurs pores, while providing all-day coverage. Reviewers recommend using a silicone-based primer with this foundation and setting it with loose powder.
