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
I love this foundation, probably my favourite out of all of the ones I have bought. It has a nice selection of shades, and the options of oily to dry skin which is wonderful since I have dry skin. It goes on nice and smooth, and doesn't leave any cakey-ness. It's nice and light...

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I really like this foundation in the summer. Although it doesn't keep my skin matte all day, it lasts a lot longer than other foundations are able to. The shades are super and match basically any skin tone out there.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I really like this concealer, I use it in the pinkish highlighter tone and love it. It is my go to highlighter for contouring. It really helps hide dark circles too. It is a little bit oily for my skin, but I don't have a problem with it when I use a good primer under my makeup...

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
I really wanted to like this foundation after hearing rave reviews about it, but it just did not work for me. I have combination skin and tend to be more on the oily side and I found that this foundation would stay pretty matte in the morning, but by the afternoon, my T-zone was...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
My face seems to be pretty picky about the foundation on my face. Sometimes I have a dry day and the next could be super oily. This foundation works every day no matter what my face feels like doing. Even on the hot hot days of summer, I trust this foundation to stay all day and...

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
Has been one of my favorite drugstore brands of foundation for years. It matches my fair tone quite well, and goes on beautifully after I moisturize. Lasts all day and the product itself lasts me months. Great value!

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
Great product, been using it daily for a while now, just wish they had some more shades and that it was easier to get the last bit of product out of the bottom at the end.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I hated this foundation. I did not like the way it set on my face and it didn't look nice at all.

Benefit Cosmetics High Beam
This is one of those long time loves for me, I have been using this product for years and years. I could do without the liquid application but it's manageable. It gives your skin a nice highlighted glow where applied.
