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
SOO I made this purchase based on reviews I read on chickadvisor. I am happy with this product as my skin is very textured, this foundation helps even everything out. However my skin did get oily after 4 hours but nothing blotting paper couldn't fix. I would compare this...

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...

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
I love this foundation, it isnt really something to get hyped about in my opinion, but definitely something I really like wearing. great shade range and formulation, but the price is terrribly high.

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
There are few purse-friendly foundations that really do the job well, but this one is a bit of a wonder-product. Matte but not drying with medium-high coverage, this formula is best suited to skin slightly on the oiler side. Due to its compact, plastic packaging, it's also a...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
If you're looking for a natural looking foundation, please look no further. Somehow this product blends with your skin almost immediately! There no need for tedious rubbing and making sure you aren't 47 shades away from your actual color. I love it and have used it everyday for...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
This was the first powder foundation that I ever purchased and tried out. I thought it was amazing at first, but overtime when I would use other powders or other foundations, I realized that this one made me extremely oily! I've since switched to a different powder foundation...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I purchased this when it first came out and there was so much hype about it. I hated it. It turned my face yellow, and the mousse texture broke out my skin within a day of using it. I do know some people who love this product; but I don't.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
This was an okay product, not something I reach for particularly. use it for days I dont want to wear a lot of makeup. A huge con for me is that it does oxidize, which looks terrible after long hours.

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
Easy to apply. Great coverage, easily blended. I'm very fair skinned so finding the coverage without feeling like wearing a mask is difficult. No issues with this

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
I absolutely love this stuff. Its a medium matte coverage that you can build up to full. It also covers pimples pretty good, and doesn't look cakey. I have combination skin so I get oily in my t zone, with this foundation I dont get oily at all. I looooove the way my skin looks...

Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex
I don't usually go for foundation that are $15 and up but i'm glad i got this one. It does have good build-able coverage, it doesn't have a smell, and it does last. I did notice however, that it does take a bit longer to dry than most of my other foundations, but once it dries...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
J'aime tellement ce fond de teint! Il fait naturel et je n'ai pas besoin de mettre de la poudre matifiante partout sur mon visage, excepté là où j'ai mis du cache-cerne! Il couvre très bien et je n'ai pas du tout l'impression d'en avoir! Sont prix est assez abordable dans...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
This foundation looks amazing when going out but for me it is too heavy for everyday use. It goes on well with my beauty blender and has all day coverage but tends to make me feel like I'm wearing lots of make up. I use it on special occasions and love the look then.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
If you love a long lasting, full coverage foundation then look no further!! This foundation is amazing! I have combination/oily skin and this stuff last ALL day! It also has a well rounded shade selection. It's hard for me to find a product that matches my fair complexion but...

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
My all time favourite foundation. Love how perfectly it blends with my skin tone, and decent coverage too. I have a lot of red tone in my face, which I absolutely hate, the ready set gorgeous foundation really evens it out and totally wipes out the redness. Doesn't seem to clog...

L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation
I have been using this foundation for a few months now and I really like it. It has a matte finish (shocker!) and is medium to full coverage. It is very build-able and feels light on the skin. I have not had any issues with cakeyness (is that not a word?) or dry patches...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
This is so far the one make-up I really love. It goes on clean and covers the whole face with a beautiful natural looking sheen. I am getting quite a few compliments about how pretty i look. Recommend.

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
This foundation comes in a convenient pump bottle, it has great coverage and blends nicely into skin. I have lots of freckles on my face and it really helped even out my skin and give a polished look.
