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
For a loose powder foundation, this one is incredible. It's buildable and feels super light. It wears for 12 hours well for normal skin if you finish with the mineral veil powder. I find that I need to put on some extra moisturizer and not forget the primer if I'm wearing...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
Meh. Decent foundation I guess. Could do better or worse. Basically average, the colors are a little darker then what they say. Buy it if you want a cheaper foundation to use when you forget your usual stuff.

Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation
I received this product from Chickadvisor to try. This foundation goes on super light. When you touch your skin, you can barely tell you are wearing anything. Great coverage. I have not the great color but i love it something. I would absolutely recommend this product.

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
I was very pleased with this foundation and the fact that it felt light-weight on my face. A lot of foundations tend to feel heavy on my face but this one has a light-weight feel to it. Excellent product!

Love applying this foundation with a brush as opposed to the applicator it comes with. The foundation is so smooth and has very nice coverage.

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I love this foundation. I used it years ago - then made a switch to a more expensive brand. I have recently started using Covergirl again, and don't know why I ever stopped in the first place. It gives a nice dewy finish and is easy to apply. I use the sponge that is supplied...

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation
This foundation is great at covering up everything that you need it to and it looks beautiful worn throughout the day. A lot of people hype this product up but personally, I don't find this foundation any better than Estée Lauder's Double Wear (if it's not better!) so once I...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
I did not find this foundation to be very effective on my skin. I found it didn't blend very nicely and it didn't last very long either. The price is right but it's not worth it. Spend a few more dollars to get a foundation that will give you the coverage you want and not dry...

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
One of drugstore brands with the most colour selection that will match almost every woman. This foundation is your basic foundation that is medium coverage and stays put for most of the day, but usually starts to seep through at the 5-6 hour mark. Won't stay all day but if you...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
This foundation has a super light feeling on the skin but is still a full coverage foundation. As the name suggests, it looks perfect in pictures and has no flashback!!

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation
It fits my skin very well and I think it's a great way to complete the make up.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
This foundation is pretty high coverage for me, yet the formula is really lightweight! This foundation really does last all day, and has a wonderful matte finish. However, because of the design of the bottle, it can get messy at times.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
This is one of my favorite foundations. I use a tiny bit but I find it blends and matches my skin tone really well. I find it makes my skin look really soft. I am very happy with this foundation

Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
Nice idea, not for me. goes on great but lasting power is over rated. Tends to look cakey after only a few hours.
