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 have many friends who loves this item but for myself, I didn't like it. The price was alright however I have lots of freckles that I love to cover up. I am a pretty pale person as well. I felt like I couldn't get the right skin tone for me and coverage was pretty poor. I felt...

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
What a great foundation this is. I have combination skin and it blends so nicely. I also noticed that some of my fine lines seem too disappear when I put this on. I also love the fact that there is a SPF in this. I hate having to put another product on for sunscreen protection...

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
This is one of the only drugstore foundations i have to match my skin tone (indian/olive). I also really enjoy the finish of the product which gives me a poreless clean skin which sits through heat and cold. I've used this on my trip to hot humid India and my Aunts all wanted to...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I really like this product especially in the summer time or times when I don't want to wear a heavy foundation. The MAC studio fix powder plus foundation really gives me almost full coverage for my mild rosacea and I feel confident when wearing it!

Maybeline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
This make up is a bargain. It goes on nice and light without giving you that thick heavy feeling of makeup. It last a long time and is very affordable. It also comes in many shades for all skin tones.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
J'ai essayé d'utiliser plusieurs fois ce fond de teint et je suis déçue. Il a terminé à la poubelle. La texture est étrange et la mousse a plutôt un effet d'éponge et met des petites granules sur ma peau. Non merci.

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
If you can find your shade in this product and you have oily skin with acne/pigmentation, this is an EXCELLENT option. It has a MATTE finish. I have this in the oily/combo liquid version, and the whipped version. I unfortunately don't have my exact shade in this line, I can only...

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
It's amazing at oil control! Great selection of colours but it can be a little pricey for a poor college student like me :) However I still like to invest since it promised me long lasting coverage. Sometimes, it could look too heavy and cakey though, so be careful !

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
I have super oily skin and have tried foundations from high end and drugstore and I always tend to go back to this one! The color selections isnt entirely great and doesn't cater to girls with yellow undertone (i find). But because of its effectiveness on oil control and...

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
i did and didnt like this product! Im not sure if it was the primer i used before or if it was my skin that day. That is why I gave it 3/5 stars! It didnt set good on my skin, and it was budging! My products on top didnt sit well! I love the coverage for a drugstore brand but...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
If you are looking for a full coverage full out foundation - I would definitely recommend the MAC Studio Fix fluid. It also pairs nicely with the studio fix powder for a full look. I don't often do a full face of makeup anymore, so don't use this product on a daily basis, but...

L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation
Great foundation, this is super high coverage and it lasts through blood, sweat and tears workouts and hot humid summer days. My advice, however is to wear a good primer underneath because this is a dry foundation and it is super matte and if you have any visible pores it will...
