Foundation Reviews

Peaches 'n cream-complected young people need not apply, but the rest of us need a little help evening out skin tone, hiding sun damage, and masking enlarged pores.  That's where a proper foundation comes in.  There are two main ways to use this product: mineral powder (praised for its non-comedogenic and natural sun blocking properties) and liquid formulations (best for creating a dewy glowing look).  Be sure to change your usual shade by season to best match your natural tone.  If you can't decide between two shades, go for the darker one to give your complexion warmth and mask flaws better.

ChickAdvisor members give props to powdered foundations from Bare Escentuals bareMinerals, MAC Studio Fix Powder plus Foundation, and Maybelline New York Mineral Power Loose Foundation.  High marks for liquid formulas belong to Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse, Marcelle New-Age Anti-Wrinkle Makeup, and Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation.

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
he bottle is different now, it's a skinner, taller bottle I don't know if they changed the formula or what because I never used this back when it was in the other bottle. Anyway, this retails for about $3. For that price I was not expecting anything from it, but I bought it...

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I don't like this powder foundation. I find it cakes up on my skin and looks too powdery, no matter how I apply it. I know some people who love it, though.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
First of all let me say that I absolutely loved the price of this! I was a little nervous at first but Maybelline pulled through on this one. The packaging is very appealing and convenient for when taking trips. It isn't an odd size and fits very well in your purse. The...

Maybelline has been a big disappointment in foundation for me, I also got terrible breakouts from this foundation, there is one foundation of theirs I can use, but this was literally the worst, it didn't set into your skin like most, it stayed wet and clumpy all day, even with...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I used this foundation a couple of years ago, for a while. I wasn't very makeup conscious back then so I continued to buy it because I thought the price was good and I knew Revlon was a good brand. It's only now that I use different foundations that I realise how bad this...
