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.

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
This foundation is great for giving you a light, soft, fairly even skin tone. In summer I can get away with just putting some of this powder on and mascara. However, when my skin is quite uneven or has blemishes, I do need to put some concealer on prior to applying this powder.

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 New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I didn't like this product, didn't go on smoothly and I worried about the germs and dead skins cells gathering on the reuseable brush. Not a fan

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I have been using this foundation for the past year. I wouldn't count on this stuff to cover dark circles or hide spots. I use this just to even out my skin tone. I tend not to use it during the warmer months because it would literally melt off my face but works fine in the...

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation
This mineral loose powder foundation is inexpensive but when i use it, I feel like it cakes up on my face and causes irritations. It has good coverage though...

Marcelle New-Age Anti-Wrinkle Make-Up
I bought this over the summer when my original was out and it was one of the closest to my regulars. I guess it would be an o.k. make up for me but i would not spend the money for it when i can get just a good of a make up with Covergirl. Just way too expensive for me for the...

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
Ce fond de teint est disponible en une grande variété de couleurs pour tous les types de peaux. Il couvre très bien et s'applique bien. Par contre, je trouve que sa tenue n'est pas assez longue, mais je l'utilise quand même, car il ne bouche pas les pores de peau!

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I love this foundation it is my holy grail of foundations! I have some oily spots on my face and it doesn't seem to make it any worse, it even helps to conceal it! It is a bit on the pricey side but when you compare it to high end makeup it is worth the money! I will definitely...

Revlon ColorStay Makeup w/Softflex
I've gone through a few of this foundation already, and I can say that it does its job incredibly well. This foundation stays on me the entire day and covers up my blemishes amazingly. I like that it does many of the things it says it does for a fairly reasonable price. The...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
Picked this foundation up at my local Shoppers Drug Mart. I tried to look up reviews for this foundation before purchasing but as always, they were mixed. Many people on the internet had said that this foundation does wonders for them so I decided to give it a try. Results:...

CoverGirl Natureluxe Silk Foundation
I wore this last summer with not too many issues. I'm 40, with fair skin but Rosacea - so think pink. My skin is sensitive and I often break out with face products. This foundation (I used ivory) went on smoothly, blended well and looked nice for about 1/2 of the day. Then it...
