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
After years of searching for a foundation that was suitable for my sensitive, acne-prone skin and that also provides good coverage, I can honestly say that I found the perfect foundation for my skin. I have been using bareMinerals for the past 2 and half years and I swear by it...

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
This foundation is easy to use and it applies into your face nicely. It doesn't feel too heavy either and you can't even tell I'm wearing it at all which is a good thing! Perfect for covering up blemishes.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
This stuff is terrible! Did I get a bad batch? When I swipe it on my face chunks of it literally fall off onto my clothes, my bathroom counter, etc. It also oxidizes like crazy. Stay away....!

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
I love Mac's Studio Fix Fluid. I have combination skin. This foundation leaves my skin demi-matte. It last 12+ hours and does not oxidize. It does transfer and so I do recommend setting with a light setting powder. Coverage is medium but is buildable to full.

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
This foundation is the best! I found the coverage could be built up from light to medium coverage. I loved that the foundation really settled into my skin. I tend to have dry skin which can look wrinkly with most foundations, this was not that case with this brand. This product...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
No need to apply a primer before this foundation, as this works great as a 3-in-1. It lasts all day, and colour match is right on. In between winter and summer, I sometimes have to mix two shades. Applied with a Beauty Blender sponge or a stipple brush, you will save on your...

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
I just last summer discovered this product and OMG its amazing. It covers every blemish or dark spot you need it to. The best part is that you can get it at the drug store for only 10$. That is a steal for what you get out of it!! I would highly reccomend this foundation to...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I have trouble finding a foundation I LOVE. The lady at the store helped pick this one out. I do like it but I dont LOVE it. I think the colour is off a shade for me. I may purchase another in the future if I don't find something I LOVE.

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 love the coverage, but a little goes a long way. The matte finish lasted all day and still felt feathery light. This is my new must-have for the summer.
