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 have combination skin and I actually came to love this powder foundation. I did however have to play around with moisturizers under the powder because of my dry patches (I use the Clinique dramatically different gel). This powder actually blurs my imperfections and gives my...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
This foundation was on sale for $5.99 $2.00mfg coupon. So I figured why not. I had read mixed reviews. I have normal to dry skin. This was great, I didn't even notice my dry spots. I even spent an hour sitting inside an extremely hot and humid pool area and it stayed put. I...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
It's hard to find a good foundation because some make your skin look oily or cakey but this foundation actually makes your skin look smooth and almost perfect. Comes in shades as light as porcelain ivory which I am glad about because I am pretty pale and don't mind the pale...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
this is a great concealer. Amazing coverage, it doesn't crease and it blends really well. I love the applicator but I've found if you're too rough with it the sponge starts to tear a bit. Altough overall its a great concealer.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
Have used it a month, and I wouldn't recommend it for women in there 50's. It didn't match my skin it left a line on my jaw line. No matter how I tried could not match it.It would probably be good for younger women. ' ; '

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
I have been using this foundation for about a year now and I really like the coverage it provides. It feels light on my skin, and is an easy match to my skin tone. A little pricey, but worth it for a good product. Smooth and easy to apply. The only thing is that I find it...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I bought this to compare to the Makeup Forever HD foundation and I was pleasantly suprised with the results. The Revlon foundation actually matched my skin closer, looked flawless and covered more of my imperfections than the MUF HD and it's a fraction of the price. Also, my...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
I recently bought this product and honestly it's been really good. But I noticed that it isn't really waterproof like I sweat alot and I feel like the foundation is melting. But I really like how it looks on the skin and I don't breakout with this foundation. Also it's build...

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
This primer left my skin feeling silky and smooth, perfect base for applying foundation to. However, it was much too expensive for such a small jar. A little goes a long way, but you only have a little so it doesn't last long at all. I'd recommend it because it is fantastic, but...

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.

Revlon 24hr ColorStay Foundation
This is the only foundation that I have used that actually stays on all day. I do use a primer underneath and HD face powder on top and my skin looks amazing all day long. Without primer I find it doesn't last as long.

CoverGirl Natureluxe Silk Foundation
I had hopes of hiding my rosacea redness and bumps, and unfortunately this performed no better than most other comparably priced foundations. If you only have mild skin tone issues it might be worth it.
