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 really like this as a finishing powder. It blends in very well and isn't drying on my skin. While the coverage isn't the best when using only the powder, it is good for a make up look when I am in a hurry. I often use this more as a setting powder to smooth out my liquid...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
Maybelline Fit me Foundation can stand on it's own with High end foundations. I love the formulation of this product . Because I have oily skin I use the Matte and poreless foundation and I mix a little of the first formula to give it a little glow. Once I apply it with my damp...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I really did not like this dream matte mousse foundation. It went on really thick and felt heavy on my face. It almost seems like the foundation is too thick. I am really not a fan of cakey foundation and this one is pretty cakey. #maybelline

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I love L'Oreal's hair dye. And honestly out of all the drugstore makeup products, I'd say they are the best. But in terms of this, it's a miss. I had the one that was in the squeeze tube. I had gotten the correction one and the foundation. Either can be worn as a stand alone...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I have oily skin and very dark/blue tones under my eyes. This concealer works amazing at covering without feeling heavy. I set with a powder and it lasts all day. I even have trouble wiping it off at the end of the night.

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I had spent years looking for the perfect foundation, until I found this one - I love it and swear by it. It stays on all day, and doesn't cause breakouts. It has a good amount of coverage to cover my red spots and I always stock up when I find it on sale at Shoppers!

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
A pretty great foundation I have a hard time finding a good one that matches my skin tone but this brand has the perfect match. Its blends nicely and is sort of matt but not fully. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact its a bit sticky but it does dry... oh and a pump...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I am not going to lie, I only purchased this product because I was in desperate need for some cover up and it was cheap. It really doesn't last long on my face and it does not look like it covers anything up. It looks as if I didn't apply any make up at all.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
I previously used a foundation that gave me very light coverage, which is what I liked. However, this OUTLAST STAY FABULOUS 3-IN-1 FOUNDATION is my new favourite. It provides a bit more coverage where I need it, and lasts all day. It can be cakey, if your skin is not freshly...

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation
Very good for a drug store mineral powder! I would recommend for people who want to try mineral ware, but are not ready to spend all the money for bare minerals or any other expensive brand.

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
This was my favorite foundation, ever, and I had used it exclusively in place of many of the expensive foundations I had used over the years. Finding the right foundation for my skin type and the right shade, had always been a major challenge, until this foundation was released...

YUCk this is super thick and does not apply nicely or look nice at all.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
Nice product but too thick. Very silky texture but I prefer other products such as benefit pore perfect.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
I am in love with this foundation! I bought it after reading so many positive reviews and I'm so glad I did. It lasts all day without primer, setting spray or powder and doesn't oxidize into an orange mess. The finish is flawless and not cakey at all. I have combo skin and...
