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.

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
Finding the right foundation doesn't always have the best outcome. But by using this product I have noticed that my foundation look is more flawless and lasts longer.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
Until recently, I wore nothing but drug store makeup. I never liked the feel of foundation so only wore it on special occasions to give my face a nice complexion, otherwise my face was bare. A friend of mine who studied in cosmetics, introduced me to the MAC Studio Fix by saying...

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I use high-end brands for all of my cosmetics except my foundation. The Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation works amazing and it stands up to other much more expensive brands. I am 100% happy with the quality and especially the price!

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
Very good makeup. I bought it and it was really good. My last makeup was always clogging my pores. Alot of makeup will just make you look older and this one was a light weightless feel but yet it covered all the flaws on my ageing face .

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation
This is the best loose powder that I have found to date. You don't need to "cake it on" in order for it to give good coverage...nice & light weight.

Marcelle New-Age Anti-Wrinkle Make-Up
I bought this product on a whim and I was glad that I did. I just wanted to try something different and this make-up was really good for me. It is a lasting makeup for all day wear and it is worth the money. My face feels terrific.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
Thought i had found my perfect color to bring it home put it on and look like a lighter version of snooki... was really sad. It was not a fit me foundation at all!

Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation
I stumbled upon this foundation because I really wasn't satisfied with any others I had used in the past. This foundation by far is the best I have ever used. Without even using primer, it goes on smoothly, and makes your skin look even and silky. I have combination skin and...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
I really like using this foundation during the winter but not so much in the summer. I have combination skin and my skin is too oily in the summer and the foundation adds to the oiliness in the summer. I have to use a powder foundation in the summer. I like the application of...

MAC Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
I have been using MAC Studio Fix Fluid for the past ten years! I have very sensitive skin that is prone to break outs. When using other brands of foundation, my skin was always left looking cakey and red. I use foundation to cover my breakouts but found that when I used other...

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
I love this foundation! Thanks to these tiny little light refractors in the makeup, it give you a glow. I get compliments on my skin all the time. It goes on smooth and lasts all day. Worth every penny!

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation
Great texture, good medium coverage. Blends well but I haven't found a shade that matches my skin perfectly.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
Very good makeup for the price. I bought it one day when they were out of my regular kind and i tried it and really like it. I will be buying this again for sure. It lasted all day at work, even after i sweated and worked hard all day

Revlon ColorStay Makeup w/Softflex
This foundation provides full coverage, which was what I needed when my skin was breaking out and leaving dark marks on my face at the same time. It was hard to talk to people, because my confidence was so affected by my face and all the other foundations and BB creams I tried...

L'Oreal True Match Foundation
I have used this product all last winter as I found it was a very good match to my complexion. It was not sticky or greasy and glides on smooth creating a nice matte finish. The price. like all makeup now is over inflated for the size of the bottle.

CoverGirl Natureluxe Silk Foundation
I wore this last summer with not too many issues. I'm 40, with fair skin but Rosacea - so think pink. My skin is sensitive and I often break out with face products. This foundation (I used ivory) went on smoothly, blended well and looked nice for about 1/2 of the day. Then it...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
This is, by far, the best foundation I've used on my excessively oily skin. I do have one dry spot, where it likes to cling to, but I fix that with moisturizer. This stuff lasts all day, in the humidity and sun, without sliding off of my skin. I do still have to occasionally...
