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
I love this foundation in the warmer months, however in the winter it tends to cling to the dry patches on my face. I wish I could use it for the year round glow it gives me in the summer.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
This is the only concealer that I use. I have very light skin and find most concealers don't blend well on me. However, this has my perfect shade and blends it perfectly. It doesn't look or feel like I'm wearing makeup.

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation
I was in between orders of my mineral powder that I swear by and thought I would just use it for a couple days while I wait for it to arrive. To my surprise it was great, tt gave good coverage and felt very light, only down side was that it does go everywhere and is quite fine...

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
This lasts very long, but I find the colours to be off so i had to use a darker powder to make it look like my skin colour but all in all it lasts all day and covers problem areas well.

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
This is for sure my favourite drug store foundation. The price isn't the cheapest but it is definitely worth it. I am very pale and this is the only foundation that I could ever find that comes close to my skin tone. Whenever I wear this foundation I get tons of compliments on...

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
I'm into this, for the price it's really, really good. Definitely not the best out there but it might be close if you take into consideration the price difference. It made my foundation last plenty longer too.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I love this foundation!! It goes on very smoothly, it is matt like it says so the shine on my forehead etc. Disapears. And its not drying at all.

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.
