The 15 Best Drugstore Primers, All Under $15

It is widely known that the secret to flawless foundation is a good canvas (i.e. your face). Besides a good skincare regimen, a face primer really gets the job done. It blurs, brightens, and perfects your face, plus it helps your makeup last longer and not cake up. Finding a good primer is just as important as finding a good foundation, but there is no need to break the bank on one.

It was only a few years ago that nary a makeup primer could be found at the drugstore. These days, drugstores are our first stop for finding affordable options that work just as well as their luxury-brand counterparts. These aren’t your basic, run-of-the-mill primers either—from brightening to blurring, there’s a bargain buy for every skin type and concern.

So save your precious pennies and scroll through to see the best of the best drugstore steals.
