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.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

696 reviews

I'm really impressed with this foundation considering it's a drugstore product that I bought on sale for less than $10. It provides good coverage and can be layered to get a light, medium, and close to full coverage. It has a matte finish once it dries. The lighter tones don't...

I LOVE this affordable beauty foundation, It’s possibly the only foundation I have worn where people ask me what I’m wearing because it’s so natural. I love the shades, plenty of pale ones! And a great price too.

J'aime beaucoup les fonds de teint crémeux car il donne une belle apparence pour la peau , hydrate beaucoup , et ne donne pas un effet poudré . Celui ci est parfait car il en faut peu pour changer l'apparence d'une peau qui peu devenir parfaite en peau de temps. La plupart des...

I’m 29 and I’ve spent years trying to find a decent liquid foundation that is well priced and just the right balance between light weight, good coverage, moisturizer and the right tone and this one really does the trick. It’s not thick, it makes your face super soft and...

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte 24hr Foundation

214 reviews

I really wanted to love this foundation, as loreal has always been my go to brand. But…. It wasn’t for me. For the first hour or so it looked ok, then as the day wore on it sat in my lines/creases. At nearly 50 years old that isn’t a good look for me. I gave it to my 15...
COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

I love this foundation! I'm 44, so my skin is aging. I also have some uneven skin tone and minor blemishes. This foundation hides it all with great coverage that still looks natural, lasts all day but doesn't cake or crack.

This foundation worked decently for a drugstore foundation. I really liked the cushion and how well it worked for the price. They have a nice range of shades and undertones.
Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

253 reviews

I received this product free to try as a disclaimer. The moose consistency was interesting but I did not find that it added much to the product overall and left a cakey appearance and feel. The coverage was not very extensive either. Overall I don’t think that I would use this...
Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

281 reviews

This is definitely a full coverage foundation, very heavy and caky. If you need something for photos/videos I would recommend this as it will cover every small blemish on your face. As far as an every day foundation I would stay away from this as you can feel it on your face. It...
Maybelline New York Super Stay 24H Full Coverage  Foundation

143 reviews

Sits nicely on the skin, as long as it isn't too textured. Lasts long but definitely faded by the end of the night. I think for a drugstore foundation, its totally worth it and does a great job.
CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

160 reviews

I use the COVERGIRL Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation every day for work. Medium coverage but definitely buildable, longer wearing if set with a powder. The finish is beautiful with my combination/oily skin. I get a lot of compliments when I wear this foundation. Shade matched my...

COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

130 reviews

I’ve been using this product for close to 9 years. Suffering from the worst form of acne I have fooled the world. I’m thinking I’ve purchased over 400 of these guys. I apply with the average sponge (wet) to create a perfect complexion and even skin tone. I’ve also used...

I love this foundation! I use it every day. It lasts all day, and it makes your skin nice and smooth. I find I use less than other foundations and it does not look cakey. Highly Recommend.

Now this is a 4-1 I love. It covers, goes on flawless, looks amazing and doesn't leave that cakey look. My friend has roseca and swears by it too. The compact is easy to handle and not cheap.

I most confess i didn't have great expectations about this foundation, it's so cheap,so i thought why not to try? and i got very surprised, it's so lightweight and the coverage is amazing. Bye bye expensive foundations.
