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 bought this as I couldn't find the dream wonder liquid foundation. Although it's not my favorite, if does give that matte look and it's not too heavy o your face. Pretty good coverage for the price!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
l'un de mes fonds de teint préféré en vente en pharmacie. Peu dispendieux, donne un effet lisse à la peau. S'estompe bien, offre une bonne couvrante. Bon produit a essayer !

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
Holy grail foundation. I have combination, acne-prone skin and this powder goes on so smoothly, lasts long, and gives you literally flawless skin. the coverage is amazing- especially because it doesn't look cakey at all.

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
Not a big fan of Make up Forever, when i went to study to be a make up artist, I had to work with their products and the foundation is not as great as the price you are paying for it. it does have a lot of colours to choose from but still doesn't convince me. I found that Make...

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
I have tried so many different liquid foundations, many that cost over $50 but this foundation is certainly the best. It gives me a smooth complexion without leaving a cakey look or feel. I receive compliments on my skin quite often and I believe it has to do with this...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
I have tried many different foundations over the past year including drugstore brands and higher end brands. Out of all the foundations I have tried, I found this to match my skin tone the most. This foundation is light with a medium/light coverage. I have freckles that I don't...

Maybeline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
This is my summer/ having a greasy ball of a face day, foundation. DO NOT USE WITH DRY SKIN... that being said, I have used a moisturizing primer on dry patches and gotten this foundation not to stick to those spots. For drug store, its a great choice, plus I'm not even the...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I LOVE this powder/foundation so much!! The first one I bought was for my wedding 7 years ago and (yes I know I should have thrown it out) - but it lasted me until around December 2016 - which goes to show how little I wear powder/foundation, but also how much a value the...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
J'ai essayer ce produit il y a quelques années et j'aimais bien le fini poudré. Par contre, il ne tenais pas longtemps et le prix est dispendieux pour la petite quantité de produit.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I love this concealer. It does what it claims for. Also, I can tell it has the same quality and finish like an higher end product. I'm on my second tube, and will be continuing stock up on this one. Definitely recommend it!

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Foundation Stick
This foundation stick is buttery smooth and blends like a dream. I would recommend a foundation brush over a beauty blender for application as the blender tends to soak up more products. Coverage is full which is amazing. Wear time is decent I touched up a few times after a...

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
I've had this foundation for a pretty good amount of time and the LITTLEST amount of foundations covers your entire face. If you have oily skin like me, I highly recommend this foundation! I don't need to blot, and it's such a lightweight foundation.

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
I used this foundation for my elopement wedding and was very happy with the results. It was easy to apply with a sponge, provided even full coverage, lasted all day outdoors in warm temperatures and did not contain apt which eliminated any reflection in photos.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
BEST bang for your buck foundation i've used. I have no problem splurging on make-up if I feel like it works. Covergirls 3 in 1 is a great coverage foundation that I use daily. I prefer to apply with a beauty blender sponge for more natural looking coverage.

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
This product is ok. I think I may have bought a shade too dark (which never happens), but I'm able to work with it. the only thing I'm not ok with, is how easily is comes off. Maybe my face is too oily, I'm not sure but that was the first thing I noticed when I tried it for the...

Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex
Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex is a great all day foundation. It is full coverage and its tough enough to go all the way into the late hours without flaking or looking caked on.
