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.

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
This is a fabulous foundation. Super blendable and great coverage. It has a very liquidy consistency so you don't need too much I find. It gives a nice finish to the skin and lasts all day.

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
I was looking for a medium coverage drugstore foundation that was good for dry skin and this is perfect. The coverage is really decent but doesn't dry out my skin at all. I use a primer underneath and the combination lasts through the workday. I will definitely buy this again.

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I've been using this off and on only because it gets pretty costly as they're over $20 but it's very good on my face. Conceals everything and my face is never oily.

Maybeline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation
I've used this foundation for a couple years now. There's some amazing qualities about this foundation and some not so great qualities. The coverage and finish of this foundation is amazing for a drug store brand which is why I've stuck with it for so long. The packaging is a...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
This is one of my favourite products from the drugstore. It's cheap and gets the job done. I usually purchase this in the neutralizer colour and it hides my dark circles fairly well compared to some of my higher end concealers. I like to remove the sponge applicator as i found...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
This is my holy grail foundation! It's my everyday go-to. It works so well with my oily skin. It lasts all day! The only minor set back is that I wish it came in a porcelain shade as the ivory tends to be a but dark for my fair skin in the winter. Other than that, it's fantastic!

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
This was my first Mac product and I had high expectations, unfortunately I was let down. First, the bottle; after shaking the bottle (as it says to do) it was almost impossible to get any product out. I would have liked this better if it was a pump. Second, the product. I always...
