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.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
For someone with acne, this is the best powder that gives the best coverage. No need for liquid foundation

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I bought this foundation because I was tired of using expensive foundations that didn't do the job. It goes on with an average coverage (you can layer over it if you're looking for a high coverage) and the colour match is perfect. I went on vacation and came back with a tan, so...

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I don't really wear foundation often, just because I like to let my skin breathe. I generally tend to go for powder foundations but I decided to give this one a try anyways, and I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't clog my pores, nor did it cake my face. It also does a good job...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
this is a great concealer. Amazing coverage, it doesn't crease and it blends really well. I love the applicator but I've found if you're too rough with it the sponge starts to tear a bit. Altough overall its a great concealer.

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.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
Have used it a month, and I wouldn't recommend it for women in there 50's. It didn't match my skin it left a line on my jaw line. No matter how I tried could not match it.It would probably be good for younger women. ' ; '

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
I have been using this foundation for about a year now and I really like the coverage it provides. It feels light on my skin, and is an easy match to my skin tone. A little pricey, but worth it for a good product. Smooth and easy to apply. The only thing is that I find it...

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 24hr ColorStay Foundation
This has light coverage and stays put on my oily skin. However, this broke me out quite a bit so I stopped using it. My sister tried it and it worked for her, so I guess it works well for some people and not so much for others.

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.

CoverGirl Natureluxe Silk Foundation
I had hopes of hiding my rosacea redness and bumps, and unfortunately this performed no better than most other comparably priced foundations. If you only have mild skin tone issues it might be worth it.
