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 was so excited to try this foundation. I was looking for a medium/buildable coverage with a natural finish and had heard such great things about bareminerals. Unfortunately this foundation absolutely sucked. I have a feeling this is meant for people that have great skin...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
I really like this foundation. It blends really well into my skin and covers up flaws really well. To avoid any caking, I dillute the foundation with moisturizer in areas like my forehead and cheeks, and then use the full strenght product over zits and under my eyes. Thank you...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I was gifted this product by my sister a couple of weeks ago. Unsure if I should change from my regular foundation to the Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation, I decided to give it a try over the weekend. BEST DECISION I HAD EVER MADE! I do personally need to learn...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I bought this because I really like the design of the containter and hte spunge thing. I think it would make for a precise application and a handy-dandy tip blender. The tip is a round and soft ball that is gentle on the skin. The foundation squeezes out of the applicator and...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I'm on the fence about this one - I like the oil control aspect because I have combination skin. The price is also nice. I find the coverage not so great, especially compared to some of the rest of the CG range. I also find that if I don't spend a lot of time blending the edges...

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
This is one of the best foundations I have tried for what I need it to do. I have scarring on my cheeks which this has covered better then everything else I have tried. I found it looks a little cakey to me but I haven't found my foundation soulmate yet lol. But this is still a...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
This is my HG drugstore foundation.. the coverage is medium-full, it's buildable, and lasts for my 12 hour shifts! It blends easily and makes my skin look FLAWLESS! The only downfall is that this foundation does oxidize - so be sure to go a shade lighter!

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
This is a cheap foundation that does the job for big events that will require a lot of photos. I've never worn foundation before in my life and the cosmetic lady at Shoppers recommended the Revlon PhotoReady Foundation to me. This stuff really does look amazing in photos, my...

Revlon 24hr ColorStay Foundation
This stuff works great ! Only issue I've had is that if I put too much on,, throughout the day, my oily skin makes it melt a little bit. If you don't pack it in though, it's flawless

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
The effect on my skin is good, my skin looks really smooth when I apply this product, but it give me acne! Yuck! My skin is normal to mixt and normally I have acne only during "that moment of the month". Every time I try this product I wasn't during this period.

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.

Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Makeup 4-in-1
This is definitely my favorite powder foundation. Its a full coverage foundation without LOOKING full coverage. Its very buildable as well, so you can put more where you need it, and less where you don't. On me, it looked quite natural, and didn't oxidize either. It did my oily...
