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
I recently bought this foundation to try out. I like it a lot more than I thought I would. I think I chose the colour sandy beige and it matches my skin perfectly. I like that since the formula is thicker, it doesn't oxidize so I am left with the colour I had originally put...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
This foundation is the best I've try in my life. So natural and medium coverage. The price is worth it. All you have to do is blend it out and it's done. Perfect foundation ever. The fit me matte and poreless is perfect.

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
The price is great for what you get, however I don't think the product is as effective as it's made out to be on TV. It would be great for light coverage during the summer, however if you're looking to cover any redness in the face (I have very mild rosacea on my cheeks), this...

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
I've been using this foundation for a few years now and it's the only foundation I carry in my kit for brides and clients. I am a freelance makeup artist and I love to use this on everyone. It blends great, has amazing coverage and most of all it looks great in photographs. I...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
If you're looking for a natural looking foundation, please look no further. Somehow this product blends with your skin almost immediately! There no need for tedious rubbing and making sure you aren't 47 shades away from your actual color. I love it and have used it everyday for...

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
Pour ceux qui ont des rougeurs et une peau acnéque comme moi, je vous le conseil. Il a une excellente couvrance et il s'applique très facilement. Le seul problème, j'ai eue de la misère à trouver ma bonne couleur, mais une fois trouver, je ne regrette pas du tout. Il reste...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
This was the first powder foundation that I ever purchased and tried out. I thought it was amazing at first, but overtime when I would use other powders or other foundations, I realized that this one made me extremely oily! I've since switched to a different powder foundation...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I purchased this when it first came out and there was so much hype about it. I hated it. It turned my face yellow, and the mousse texture broke out my skin within a day of using it. I do know some people who love this product; but I don't.

Maybeline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
J'ai de la difficuleté à trouver un bon fond de teint matte pour ma peau! J'ai essayée celui-ci et j'ai pas trouvée qu'il allait très bien. Ma zone-T était très huileuse, même avec de la poudre!

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I bought this because I love the Dark circle concealer they also sell, but I was slightly disappointed. I love the sponge applicator, makes it really easy to apply when you're in a rush. As well I love how light weight it is, it has a lighter coverage. The only problem I had was...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I bought this product as I'm constantly trying to find a concealer that blends well with my face and hides a couple of age spots. I bought this covergirl foundation because it's very affordable and I'm tired of spending big bucks on makeup products that really aren't any better...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
I received the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation from BzzAgent, which states that it has "the lasting power of primer, coverage of a concealer, and blendability of a foundation in one. Shine free". The fact that it has SPF 20 is a bonus too! I was super excited...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
I really like this foundation for the good coverage and creamy blend able formula. I am an avid MAC fan and this product lives up to the name. A little goes along way and I recommend using a beauty blender to get a unified, airbrushed look.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
This is my favourite product!! I have oily skin and was originally trying every single other foundation thinking it looked lovely on me when in reality when I would get home from work it would of gone patchy and horrible looking. This foundation has helped me gain confidence...

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
It will cover your redness. Will there be transfer? Minor. Does this irritate the skin? No, and I have the most sensitive skin. Your skin will be able to breathe. It does not feel cakey at all. Will repurchase.

L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation
I have been using this foundation for a few months now and I really like it. It has a matte finish (shocker!) and is medium to full coverage. It is very build-able and feels light on the skin. I have not had any issues with cakeyness (is that not a word?) or dry patches...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
This is so far the one make-up I really love. It goes on clean and covers the whole face with a beautiful natural looking sheen. I am getting quite a few compliments about how pretty i look. Recommend.

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
This foundation comes in a convenient pump bottle, it has great coverage and blends nicely into skin. I have lots of freckles on my face and it really helped even out my skin and give a polished look.
