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 love this foundation for everyday and even on the weekends when I am not looking for an over the top look! This foundation settles so well onto the skin, and glides on so smoothly. I am brown skinned - I wear foundations that are caramel or olive tone, the colour I use from...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I tried this foundation a while ago and I was not a fan at all. It has a weird greasy consistency and made my face break out, and it also looked shiny. It did not provide good coverage either.

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
I love bare mineral makeup. It's not cakey and provides great coverage. I always purchase makeup with SPF and this mineral makeup has that. The tutorial is a must for first timers, but its easy to get the hang of

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
it is really lightweight foundation with medium coverage. It applies very smoothly and is great for natural look. If i want more coverage, i just mix it with full coverage foundation.

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
This foundation is probably one of my go to liquid foundation for everyday wear. It's a bit liquidy but that also helps with its blend ability. It blends out to be perfectly smooth and not cakey at all however you must moisturize your face properly before you use this (as you...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation goes on smooth and stays true to colour. I did find it a little sticky, but once it dried, it was fine. The colours are good, I easily matched my skin tone. No acne, or outbreaks from this product.

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I've been using this off and on only because it gets pretty costly as they're over $20 but it's very good on my face. Conceals everything and my face is never oily.

Maybeline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
I got this foundation on sale for $5.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart, and fell inlove. Not only is it super cheap, but its extra light weight on your face, and has full coverage ! Even when the foundation isn't on sale its still much more affordable than most other more expensive brand...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
This is a great light weight product. Its a medium coverage, and doesn't leave your face feeling thick. I really enjoy wearing it in the summer. Its light on my face & doesn't smug if you get sweaty.

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
Ok I'm obsessed with makeup and I've tried every brand under the sun. I always have a hard time in the winter with foundation because I get dry spots but I like a good coverage. I'm so surprised I liked this! I got the compact and it's a cream foundation with a swirl of serum in...

I've been using this foundation for probably about 6-7 years now and I've never loved a foundation more than I have this one. It stays on my face all day but it doesn't look cakey at all.It makes your face look flawless and it comes in so many shades and two different...

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
It took me a long time to try this foundation and I don't know why. I have been using this foundation for about 8 months now and I cant believe I didn't try it sooner! This stuff is incredible. Every time I use this stuff my face looks flawless. If you haven't tried this stuff...

Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex
I started using this foundation many years ago. I love the way it covers and lasts all day. I do alternate this with another brand because of price, but when it's on sale i most definitely buy this brand. The quality of this foundation is obvious, it has a nice silky feel...

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
This is a great drugstore foundation especially in the warmer months. It stays in place all day, stays matte for longer than most drugstore foundations and has great coverage! When my skin is drier, I mix with a bb cream and it works great! I love the finish of this with a brush...

L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation
This foundation right here controls every inch of oiliness! I forgot I bought this a little while ago and decided to wear it today. I kept me matte all day and received my very first compliment on my complexion while wearing this! I have very oily and acne prone skin and today...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I usually love most Covergirl products but this one just wasn't for me. The coverage is very light and didn't last very long. I prefer a foundation with heavier coverage that will last throughout the workday and this one doesn't.
