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 Liquid Mousse
I got this foundation on sale. And I love it. It is medium-high coverage, long-lasting and evenly covers my face hiding any imperfections. It can be a bit thick

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I absolutely love this! When it's hot out it doesn't roll off my face like most foundations do. It also it literally a perfect fit. There's no odor like most and the quality and quantity are exceptional

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
This is all I every use for my face. I love how flawless it goes on and conceals everything without the heaviness of a liquid foundation. Most foundations irritate my very sensitive face but I have never had a problem with this powder. Only thing that could make it better is...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I really like using this concealer. The sponge applicator is really great for pressing into the skin, then I just use a flat foundation brush to blend it in. The coverage is medium to full, probably could be full if you layer it but that's just too much product under my eyes. It...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
This foundation feels so light on skin and gives a perfect finish! I really love it! Does not cause any relation to my sensitive skin either.

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
I love this, I had my make up done at the store for my friends birthday, and she did such a great job I had to buy it. It has medium coverage and lasts a long time, a powder is good to go with this.

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
Although is product is expensive, and you might think it's better to buy a cheaper alternative you're wrong. This foundation is amazing. It's worth every penny and it last longer then a cheap drugstore brand because you hardly need any of it to get the coverage and look you...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I find I am having oilier skin in my 40s instead of it drying out, so I tried the Covergirl Oil Control foundation without success. By the end of the day my face was so shiny from all the oil build up. I even tried applying a powder after the foundation application but was...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
For some reason, I've always hated CoverGirl and their products. I've heard amazing things about this foundation though, so I decided to give it a try. Ugh! I hate this stuff. The color range is odd, and the foundation is nothing special. The pump and packaging are nice, but the...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
Great product, been using it daily for a while now, just wish they had some more shades and that it was easier to get the last bit of product out of the bottom at the end.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
Totally awesome product. I love it and the flawless look it gives my skin. It's affordable and a little goes a long way. I wish it came with a small makeup spatula because using your fingers gets bacteria in the product. I bought a small makeup spatula to use.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I have a love/hate with this foundation. Any makeup I put on usually looks great for about an hour and then I start getting an oily t-zone. I try to find a good foundation that will stay matte through-out the day, and when I saw the price for this product, I thought I'd give it...

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
This is my favourite foundation. Goes on so nice and doesn't feel cakey, I wish it was cheaper. But it is worth the money I don't use this for every day due to the price.. I would if I could afford it!! I can't find a foundation to compair to Estée Lauder double wear. If anyone...
