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 bought this from a major shopping channel and was so excited to try it, based on all they were saying. After applying it, I was so disappointed! Not only did it not cover completely, it made my face feel tight and it creased into what wrinkles I do have. I gave it more than 1...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
I really like this foundation but a little goes a long way when applying it. I find that it goes from flawless finish to kabuki mask pretty quickly so a light hand is a must.

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
Unlike it's fluid partner, I love this powder. It has flawless coverage and controls oil. It's pretty pricey but it's worth it.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
Love this foundation. Matches my skin tone pretty good. Doesn't look cakey and doesn't feel heavy. It isn't outrageously priced. Worth the money.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I liked this foundation, and it had good coverage - but it broke me out, so i wouldnt suggest it to someone with acne prone skin.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I saw lots of people talk about this on social media and I had to grab myself some and I'm glad I did. I love this as an under eye concealer. It goes on smooth and blends perfectly.

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
I'm not a fan of this foundation. I love high coverage foundation, but this has a tendency to appear cakey even though it's described as "buildable". It literally smells like paint and it transfers like crazy.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I like the coverage it works well for that, but i dont like how runny it is and it has a smell to it i dont like, its strong smelling i think

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I tried this product and I've got to admit that I was hesitant. After about a week of use, I did notice a slight difference in the color of my sun spots. I do wait a few seconds before I blend it on my entire face.

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 foundation is one of the best in the drugstore. I use the normal to dry skin formula, which I find a little bit lighter and more comfortable on the skin, and it still gives amazing coverage and a long lasting matte finish to the skin.

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I am really picky when it comes to foundation. I have mixed skin so i can't get a foundation that is too oily nor a foundation that shows my dry skin. I tried a lot of high end foundation as bobbi brown, makeup forever and tarte, but no foundation has pleased me as the revlon...

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.

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.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I use this foundation every day! It doesn't lie when it says it has a mousse texture. It has great coverage and you don't need to use too much of it. It makes my skin look clearer than ever, and doesn't feel too heavy if you use the right amount. Love it!
