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.

I love the versatility of this Foundation. If I am feeling rather "haggard" I use it straight out of the bottle for perfect coverage and skin tone match. However if I'm feeling fresh and Lively and want just a little bit of cover to even out my skin tone I will add it 50/50 to...

I bought this on a whim because it was on clearance at my Walmart for next to nothing. It’s a great foundation. The coverage is great it leaves me not shiny al day. The only complaint I have is it’s a little hard to blend in so what I do is I spray my brush with some water...

I'm a little past the point of using drug store foundation, but this one was one of the worst I tried. - To start it has a very odd smell, which thankfully airs out quickly. - It's liquid, but doesn't come with a pump or a dropper so dispensing and application can get messy...

I love this foundation. The sponge is perfect for applying it quickly and evenly. I found it helped cover small blemishes and evened ouy my skin tone. It wasn’t greasy and lasted a solid 8 hours while at work. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a budget-friendly...

I've been trying so hard to find a drug store foundation that I LOVE. Until now, I have been unsuccessful. I regularly use Estee Lauder Double Wear but trying to stick to a much smaller budget, I really wanted to find something I love as much. And I think I have to say I...
Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

This was a waste of money. The goundation was not creamy nor liquid. It seems like powdery and doesn’t blend well on skin. Within a week, it seems to be dry and more powdery and was not able to use as a foundation.

I actually used it a bit under my eyes to brighten the area up, and it worked! This is a great formula especially for those noticing a little bit of age in their skin. I've got very fine lines since I've got a expressive face!
CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

I like this product. Its decent quality, covers well, works well with my combination skin, and it won't break the bank. I do wish they had more options for skin tone. All in all its a decent product for the price.
Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation

147 reviews

I have dry/combo skin and this foundation doesn't give me the patchy look or dry out my skin. However, this foundation may have many skin tone selections but not enough to match my skin. The foundation solution isn't runny and isn't that solid either; it is the right consistency...
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

I am a huge fan of this foundation by covergirl! It’s reasonably priced and provides great overall coverage for me. It goes on smoothly and there is a shade for every skin type. My only complaint is that I don’t feel that the coverage lasts all day.
L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation

117 reviews

This product is a must have!! I use to use Doublewear by Estee Lauder, But it does add up over the year in it being around $42 CAD a bottle and my sunglasses would pull it right off my nose in the summer, even with using a few different techniques, it just wasn’t “wowing”...
Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex

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.
CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup

149 reviews

I bought this product as I have very oily, acne prone skin and was hoping for something better than the other product out there. Well this product was a step above. Unlike all the other ones that left that “heavy makeup” feel, this one was light and airy and no breakouts!...

I have been using this product for 13 years now!! Back when it was only available on the Shopping Channel! Started out purchasing a sample box of different Pur Mineral products when it was the Show Stopper one day and fell in love! Tried to go back to my old brand as was...
Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation Stick

I personally found this to be an okay product. i am more of a foundation gal, and so when I heard Maybelline was coming out with a foundation stick, I had to try it. Previously, I had also tried the Fit Me concealer (which I absolutely love) and the liquid foundation (which was...

I just bought this foundation not long ago and I've noticed it covers very well. My skin is fair and some foundations barely covered but this one covers my scars, acne and red blemishes.. It's so light on your face which is nice. I don't need to add much foundation which saves...

I really like this product. My complexion is very light and I have trouble finding makeup that works. This blends so well with my color and covers my age spots.

The quality was too thick. I just need it for spot coverage but it's to hard to blend. The color seems a little off. Seems like regular low cost drugstore makeup.
