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.

This stuff is a good drugstore foundation, however, personally I feel there are better drugstore foundations such as Loreal true match

I don't think Maybelline has a bad foundation! I don't reach for this as often as I should because I have sooo many foundations but it's really great quality.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
This is an awesome foundation, I like it even better than some of the high end ones I own. It's super easy to find your shade, and the quality is super outstanding for the price. It doesn't get oily on me, but I have dry skin and always set with a powder. It's a nice natural...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
This stuff is very thick, it's heavy duty. But with my rosacea, this is the only foundation that covers up all the redness right away. My face is basically red all over, but this foundation just makes my face look natural. The coverage and the look of the foundation is not...

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
I purchased this from Sephora a few months ago... I think it's good, but not the best out there. Maybe my expectations were too high considering all the hype about it, but it just isn't worth the price tag. I Like it and would recommend people try it out for themselves.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
This stuff works well and has good coverage, but the scent of it makes me want to die inside. It's so bad and strong I returned it after one wear, and the lady at the store even agreed with me, it's like you open the bottle and all you can smell is chemicals.

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation
This product was ok.. to be honest use to make me really oily and sometimes felt like even though it was a mineral product it became almost like a white cast on my face and the colour was correct as well... too powdery and cakey. Ended up throwing it out.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
I love this foundation, the only thing I would say is I wish they would make a lighter colour than the ivory because it's still too dark for me and I can only pull it off in the winter.

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
This is a great foundation BUT on me it oxidizes and turns orange so I can't use it :( the consistency and the coverage is good if you find the right colour. I really wish there was an even lighter one, I have the lightest shade, so I can wear it.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
I received a free full sized jar of this base. It is great. It really smooths and evens out my complexion. I just finished my jar and am looking to buy another one.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
THis stuff is so chalky, patchy, and after a month it's separated in the the bottle and is oily. Also they run pink so I look like a giant tomato.

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.
