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 Fit Me Foundation
THIS. IS. AMAZING. I can`t even begin to describe how fabulous this foundation is. For a $7 drugstore foundation, Maybelline Fit Me foundation exceeds any expectations. I personally use the Hydrate and Smooth formulation, but it also comes in a Matte and Poreless formula as...

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
The price is great for what you get, however I don't think the product is as effective as it's made out to be on TV. It would be great for light coverage during the summer, however if you're looking to cover any redness in the face (I have very mild rosacea on my cheeks), this...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
I like the product because of how light it feels on my face. In fact, I can't feel it when it's on. But unfortunately the product doesn't cover much and it wears off after a few hours.

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
This foundation is just average, it does not really have a high coverage or a fantastic consistency/texture. I had to layer it a few times to reach my desired coverage level and at that point it felt heavy and it became obvious that I was wearing a foundation and I prefer a...

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
For the longest time, I could not find a foundation that wouldn't make me break out and match my skin tone. after many unsuccessful attempts, my best friend forced me to buy this foundation. I swear by this foundation. Even though its expensive, its the only foundation that...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I use this on top of my Makeup Forever HD foundation. I don't use the provided sponge unless I want heavier coverage. For daily use, I use a blush brush to apply a thin layer all over my face.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I wore this in Vegas because my other foundation was leaking all over the place. In high humidity, this product will stick on you like glue. And trust me, you want that.

Maybeline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
I regularly use maybeline fit me foundation so I thought I would try this one as I do have issues with my skin looking oily and shiny at the end of the day. I absolutely hated this foundation, the quality didn't seem as good as their original fit me foundation and my skin...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I don't mind the formula of this product but I hate the sponge applicator. I find it very unhygienic and it's rough on my skin. That being said, I like the light shades for highlighting under my eyes. It doesn't crease on me very much and has pretty good coverage.

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I have to say I was quite surprised. I received this as a test from bzz agent and although it's too dark for my skin and much too orange it is defiently a good foundation. It's thicker and filled with lotion, so people with dry skin and need of coverage are covered ;) overall...

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
The best and my personal favourite drugstore foundation. It goes on smooth and stays looking fresh all day (with a setting spray and without). It's full coverage without giving you cakeface and doesnt settle into any lines or pores as the day goes by. As far as drugstore...

Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
This foundation is great. It doesn't get caking and a little goes a long way. I love that is has SPF but still stays matte on my oily skin. The colours blend well if you are in between seasons.

L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation
L'Oreal is my BASE! If you're into make-up you know what I mean! Once applied I have the canvas and coverage that I need to be FAB! :-) I even purchase off shades to help my contouring effects. Love it!

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
I have combo oily skin and generally prefer a matte foundation that controls oil and offers light to medium coverage. I have this foundation in the shade 320 Soft Sable which is a very good match for my NW45 skin. The foundation has a thick consistency but blends very easily...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I bought the lightest shade, but it is too pink for my skin tone. I found this product did well on my skin- not breakouts- and I would dove it a medium to full coverage.

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
This is a really good product. It does blends well , and its very light, easy to apply and leaves my skin breathable wo no clogged pores. It doesnt have any fragrance , price is right as well

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
Horrible, cakey and so hard to blend. Armani luminous silk blends into the skin with little to no effort but this just stuck to dry patches and looked so heavy. Dried out my skin like crazy!
