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
I have combination skin and I actually came to love this powder foundation. I did however have to play around with moisturizers under the powder because of my dry patches (I use the Clinique dramatically different gel). This powder actually blurs my imperfections and gives my...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse
This is a great foundation if you use it correctly! It has great coverage and looks natural, with a flawless finish! When using it a little goes along way and you don't need to cake it on, if you apply too much of this it will give you a orangish color to it. I would definitely...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
This is one of the few foundations that I have repurchased in the last few years. I just love it. I am 115 and it is a perfect match. It goes on just right for day or night wear with good coverage and easy blending. I love to use a beauty blender with it but my hands work...

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
Got mine in w6. I love the coverage, the finish and how well it blends to your skin. However, it broke me out. If your skin is not that sensitivem I'd say go for it as it's a good alternative for high end brands like MAC Studio fix fluid. Doesn't last very long esp compared to...

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
This product does work quite well & I used it for several years. I only recently switched once various companies released BB creams, in an attempt to help improve my skin, not just cover it up. However, this is still a good option for those who want a basic foundation that will...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

Marcelle New-Age Anti-Wrinkle Make-Up
I bought this over the summer when my original was out and it was one of the closest to my regulars. I guess it would be an o.k. make up for me but i would not spend the money for it when i can get just a good of a make up with Covergirl. Just way too expensive for me for the...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I bought this to compare to the Makeup Forever HD foundation and I was pleasantly suprised with the results. The Revlon foundation actually matched my skin closer, looked flawless and covered more of my imperfections than the MUF HD and it's a fraction of the price. Also, my...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
I recently bought this product and honestly it's been really good. But I noticed that it isn't really waterproof like I sweat alot and I feel like the foundation is melting. But I really like how it looks on the skin and I don't breakout with this foundation. Also it's build...

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
This primer left my skin feeling silky and smooth, perfect base for applying foundation to. However, it was much too expensive for such a small jar. A little goes a long way, but you only have a little so it doesn't last long at all. I'd recommend it because it is fantastic, but...

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.

Revlon 24hr ColorStay Foundation
I love this foundation. It last all day. I think it even gets better as the day goes on. I apply it with a beauty blender and it gives even coverage with little product. A little goes a long way. It is a bit pricey but I believe it it totally worth the price. The only con I have...

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.
