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.

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
Doesn't cover anything and wears off way too quickly.

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
I got this foundation on sale. And I love it. It is medium-high coverage, long-lasting and evenly covers my face hiding any imperfections. It can be a bit thick

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews on this foundation, I absolutely love it. Its not expensive for the amount of product you get and it has FANTASTIC coverage. I can see it becoming cakey if you pack too much on with the sponge, but if used in moderation, this...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
This is a decent foundation but if you are looking for a very good coverage this is not the best for that also I have found for those of you like me with dry skin it really drys out on your skin and makes your dry skin more defined

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
This product has really grew quality. I only use foundation on special occasions because I do not like to clog my pores, although this is definitely a good foundation to turn to. The unique matte mousse covers all imperfections on your skin.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I don't love this product as much as I hoped too. It feels almost greasy when using, and after a while it looks streaky on my skin.

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I suffered with acne for over 5 years and went through many different foundations. While most foundations cover they all seemed to be very heavy. I tried this one and not only did it cover well but it applied very lightly and I have been using it for a couple years now. The only...

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
The foundation has a light weight feel to it so it doesn't cake on at all. You can use your favorite primer, put on this foundation, and add a touch of the MAKEUP FOREVER HD Finishing Powder to give it a little more of a matte look. It also last for a very long time and is easy...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
I have bought this product multiple times. They had more recently released NW10 which is the lightest shade and I haven't found anything that matches my skin color like this one. You don't need much to get the coverage you're looking for. It's a pricey product but for how long...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I didn't like this makeup from Cover Girl. It felt too greasy or oily on my face. It also didn't match my skin tone. I purchased several bottles trying to get my right shade. It just wasn't for me.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
I received a sample of this product in a beauty box. It's fantastic. It provides great coverage and also is an awesome concealer. It's amazing to save several steps in your beauty routine with one product that has so many uses.

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I have trouble finding a foundation I LOVE. The lady at the store helped pick this one out. I do like it but I dont LOVE it. I think the colour is off a shade for me. I may purchase another in the future if I don't find something I LOVE.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
Totally awesome product. I love it and the flawless look it gives my skin. It's affordable and a little goes a long way. I wish it came with a small makeup spatula because using your fingers gets bacteria in the product. I bought a small makeup spatula to use.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I love the coverage, but a little goes a long way. The matte finish lasted all day and still felt feathery light. This is my new must-have for the summer.

Revlon ColorStay Makeup w/Softflex
I really like this foundation. The colour matches my skin very well. With the right primer, it stays on my face for hours and it gives me the perfect coverage that I want. One even layer is all I need.
