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
When I started using this product my skin was rather oily and it gave me incredible coverage while looking very natural. However, now my skin is getting dry and the while the coverage is still good it makes my skin look older and drier. This is a oily girl product.

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...

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
While this works better than the Studio Fix foundation, I still feel that this product is really thick. The coverage is good, but this would look a lot better as stage up or photo-shoot make-up than as a day to day look as the thickness of the product really prevents it from...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I am kind of confused about how I feel about this foundation. It was one of the first foundations I have tried. It wouldn't smudge in right. I could find the right color that suited me. It was just an all around bad experience. Could be the fact that it's a mousse, but I will...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I could never find a concealer that truly covered my extreme dark circles and stayed on all day, this stuff is a little expensive considering it's drug store but it does last a long time. The packaging is really weird but you can get around it by simply pulling the sponge off.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I was amazed at finding a perfect color match! The texture was very nice and went on smoothly. It felt light weight and did not feel like it plugged y pores. They felt like they could breathe. If you check around you can find a decent price on it.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
This is my absolute favourite foundation. I love the fact that it's very matte looking. I prefer the matte look myself for lipsticks and foundations. I use moisturizer under this product because I tend to have dry skin, especially in the winter months. I honestly don't think...

good quality, but not very easy to use

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
My review might not be as high as others, but it's only because I prefer a higher coverage foundation. When I went into Sephora, this product was highly recommended and was told to be a good coverage. I felt it went on very light and did not cover any redness or acne spots as...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
This product is amazing and I wish I could only list Pros, but unfortunately there is one huge con that I personally think ruins the product, and is the reason I won't be buying it again. Pros: Price was good, it was on sale for about $9. I like that it comes in a pump, the...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
This is a fantastic drug store priced foundation. There is a large range of colors for almost every skin type. I have combination skin and find that this foundation will last for 8 hours without touch ups. This product will give you almost full cover with more of a matte...

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.

Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Makeup 4-in-1
Amazing coverage. I never thought that I would be able to use a powder, due to my sensitive combo skin (I always end up looking dried out and flaky), however, Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Makeup manages to make my skin look flawless while not drying it out. Would highly...
