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 Velvet Foundation
J'ai fait la découverte de ce fond de teint il y a un mois et je l'adore. Sa texture est vraiment parfaite et confortable au niveau du visage. J'ai le visage qui a tendance à devenir plus luisant, ce qui n'est pas agréable, mais avec le Dream Velvet, je réussis à avoir un...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
greasy, coverage is OK, pigmentation is horrible and uneven, oxidizes horribly, shade 120 was second lightest and was awful - bright orange in the sunlight. Have a hard time trusting maybelline foundation ever since. They're always so damn orange!! what gives

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
I really like this foundation! It covers up fine lines and wrinkles pretty well, and it offers buildable coverage - you can either apply more powder or just do a light dust for touch ups. Leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
In my high school days this was my go-to foundation because of the price and the style back then - the coverage of this foundation is quite good though it does leave a somewhat heavy feel on your face. It also rubs off on almost everything so be careful, try not to apply too...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I mix this with their liquid foundation and my makeup stays put and covers all skin dis-coloration. I recommend it to anyone. I recommend this over any liquid concealer.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I've been using this foundation as my go to for almost 6 years now and I will continue to buy it. I've recently purchased a Younique foundation and with a thin layer of the mouse, and a layer of the younique my complexion is near perfection! Goes on very smooth and has great...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I am really disappointed in this product. It was a great price and i'm sure maybe it would work if the colour selections matched up better. I am fair skinned and purchased the lightest option in the product line and it's a god awful yellow tinged almost light orange. My...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
That foundation is really overpriced for a drugstore foundation. It is really creamy and thick, does not hold well on the skin and the colors available are not suitable for really fair skintones.

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
I've tried so many different types of foundation and this is by far my favorite! I have oily skin, so this matte foundation works amazing. It covers up all blemishes and dark under eye circles without having that caked on look. The packaging isn't the best, but it's easily...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
First Impressions: For the past couple of months I have been using this foundation in the shade 925 buff beige. This foundation claims to be super blendable and can multitask as a foundation, concealer and primer. From my experience with this foundation, I like how it has 20...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
Great coverage, semi matte finish. An average of 8 hours of wear before it requires any touch ups. The SPF doesn't make the foundation oily like SPF does sometimes which is what I initially worried about. Stays true to colour all day long.

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation
I have very light skin with a pink undertone and the makeup artist at Sephora found me a perfect match with this foundation! It goes on so nice and doesn't leave me feeling oily all day. I'm so happy I finally found a foundation that I love!

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
I have never been so disappointed in a CoverGirl foundation product as much as this one. It just could not deliver. I got it in shade L1 and the shade was pretty good it works well with my pale skin. the application of the product was horrible, it literally sat on my skin and...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I think this product is kind of hit and miss for most people you either love it or you don't. I'm not crazy about it but it does do its job it covers any imperfections and leaves the face soft. I just think the color doesn't match my skin tone at all and i bought the lightest...

Maybeline FIT ME!® Matte + Poreless Foundation
This product was a bit of a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, it was okay... it just wasn't great. It did not last all the way through my eight hour shift. I've had better!

Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
This foundation works well, but occasionally needs touch ups after a few hours. It goes on smooth and creamy, and sets Ina beautiful soft, matte finish withina few seconds. The price is great, at less than $10 a bottle which lasts quite a while. The biggest pros for me with...

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
This is a great light coverage foundation. I love the thin consistency of it. It blends very well and the colour range is impressive. Many drug store foundations tend to oxidize on me but this one does not. I don't find it super build able, but it's great if you just want a...

Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation
Great coverage, and had a nice creamy consistency that's easy to blend. If you don't set it the foundation can run a little bit so be sure to use a setting spray or powder.
