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 really enjoy the texture and application of the new Maybelline dream velvet foundation. I use a beauty blender sponge to apply this and it provides a medium converge with a natural finish. It feels very lightweight on the skin so I feel like this would be nice for spring and...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
Maybelline's fit me foundation has to be the best in the drugstore! This line like all the other foundations have a good colour range and the formula for this foundation is amazing. I have dry/sensitive skin and this foundation doesn't irritate or dry my skin out which a lot of...

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
I really like this foundation! It covers up fine lines and wrinkles pretty well, and it offers buildable coverage - you can either apply more powder or just do a light dust for touch ups. Leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
In my high school days this was my go-to foundation because of the price and the style back then - the coverage of this foundation is quite good though it does leave a somewhat heavy feel on your face. It also rubs off on almost everything so be careful, try not to apply too...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I mix this with their liquid foundation and my makeup stays put and covers all skin dis-coloration. I recommend it to anyone. I recommend this over any liquid concealer.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I don't like liquid foundation. And as a 'occasion-only' makeup wearer, I found this okay. It covered up all that needed to be covered and all but it clogged my pores, was a tad bit too yellow for my skin. Try it for yourself though but for my medium-dark skin it didn't do...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
This is by far one of the best foundations i've used. Its light and airy but is a full coverage foundation the price however is expensive for a maybelline product it say 9 on here which would be amazing but when not on sale its typically 15.99-18.99 at shoppers near me. It does...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I am really disappointed in this product. It was a great price and i'm sure maybe it would work if the colour selections matched up better. I am fair skinned and purchased the lightest option in the product line and it's a god awful yellow tinged almost light orange. My...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I didn't really like this product i found the lightest shade to dark for my skin and that the product itself just sat ontop of my skin making my face look like i had caked on makeup not a good look

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
I've tried so many different types of foundation and this is by far my favorite! I have oily skin, so this matte foundation works amazing. It covers up all blemishes and dark under eye circles without having that caked on look. The packaging isn't the best, but it's easily...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
First Impressions: For the past couple of months I have been using this foundation in the shade 925 buff beige. This foundation claims to be super blendable and can multitask as a foundation, concealer and primer. From my experience with this foundation, I like how it has 20...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
This is my staple foundation product. It's the only one that matches my skin this well and stays put even when I sweat all day. It is great for pictures and doesn't have an oily shine cast with flash photography. Try it it's good.

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation
I have very light skin with a pink undertone and the makeup artist at Sephora found me a perfect match with this foundation! It goes on so nice and doesn't leave me feeling oily all day. I'm so happy I finally found a foundation that I love!

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
I have never been so disappointed in a CoverGirl foundation product as much as this one. It just could not deliver. I got it in shade L1 and the shade was pretty good it works well with my pale skin. the application of the product was horrible, it literally sat on my skin and...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I think this product is kind of hit and miss for most people you either love it or you don't. I'm not crazy about it but it does do its job it covers any imperfections and leaves the face soft. I just think the color doesn't match my skin tone at all and i bought the lightest...

Maybeline FIT ME!® Matte + Poreless Foundation
I like this product. im in the shade 120. for the price, it honestly feels so natural on the skin. the one thing that surprised me was how it somehow really blends into your skin colour, making it almost like you aren't wearing anything. my only issue is that it tends to oxidize.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
I have been purchasing this foundation for awhile now. I really like this foundation when my face isn't breaking out. I would not recommend this product to people with bad acne just because it's a matte finish.

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
This is a great light coverage foundation. I love the thin consistency of it. It blends very well and the colour range is impressive. Many drug store foundations tend to oxidize on me but this one does not. I don't find it super build able, but it's great if you just want a...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I recently purchased this product. I absolutely love it. Great coverage, doesn't feel heavy on your face. No powder needed. Give this product a chance.
