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 love this foundation. My skin used to be cover in pimples but now luckily that has cleared up, however I am left with lots of scars and redness. This foundation wouldn't cover pimple or big scars, however it is great for redness . It made my skin look flawless and natural. If...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
I really like this foundation. It blends really well into my skin and covers up flaws really well. To avoid any caking, I dillute the foundation with moisturizer in areas like my forehead and cheeks, and then use the full strenght product over zits and under my eyes. Thank you...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
This is a great foundation for someone who doesn't need very full coverage. For me, I found I couldn't build it up enough to work for me. But it's very lightweight and looks very natural. I highly recommend for people who are looking for a lightweight natural finish foundation.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
This covered well and I enjoyed applying it, I like the unique formula....but my skin is normal to dry and I found it looked a little dry on my skin so I won't be buying this again.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I bought this because I really like the design of the containter and hte spunge thing. I think it would make for a precise application and a handy-dandy tip blender. The tip is a round and soft ball that is gentle on the skin. The foundation squeezes out of the applicator and...

MAC Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
I originally bought the face & body, because everyone said it was so great, but I sent it back! It did not have much coverage at all. This one now is perfect! I have turned into a foundation hog, and I love long lasting ones. I never wear them more than 8 hours, but after I put...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I tried this product and I've got to admit that I was hesitant. After about a week of use, I did notice a slight difference in the color of my sun spots. I do wait a few seconds before I blend it on my entire face.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I'm on the fence about this one - I like the oil control aspect because I have combination skin. The price is also nice. I find the coverage not so great, especially compared to some of the rest of the CG range. I also find that if I don't spend a lot of time blending the edges...

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
This foundation is beautiful. I'm a makeup artist and this is always what I have in my kit. It photographs beautifully so it's perfect for brides. There is such a wide range of shades that anyone can find their shade. It's medium coverage but easily builds up to full coverage so...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
This is my favourite fall/winter foundation. It provides great coverage without being too heavy. Even when my skin is a bit more dry in the winter, I feel like I can skip setting it with powder and it gives me a really natural finish that doesn't make my skin look flaky or oily...

Revlon 24hr ColorStay Foundation
I tried this product recently and all I have to say is that it works great and lasts all day. I'm really bad for touching my face without realizing it so with my old foundation I wouldn't have any make left in my face by the end of the day, but with Revlon foundation my make up...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
This is a cheap foundation that does the job for big events that will require a lot of photos. I've never worn foundation before in my life and the cosmetic lady at Shoppers recommended the Revlon PhotoReady Foundation to me. This stuff really does look amazing in photos, my...

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
I'm into this, for the price it's really, really good. Definitely not the best out there but it might be close if you take into consideration the price difference. It made my foundation last plenty longer too.

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.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
This is on the very top of my list for favorite foundations. I can't get enough of this stuff. The consistency of this is, as its name would imply, moussy. It is truly matte and it wears that way all day long. It comes in a squeeze tube, so you just squeeze less than a pea-sized...
