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.

It’s a good product. I just dont recommend using it for an all day makeup because it can make your face look oily. But overall i still recommend it. It doesnt feel heavy on the face

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 love covergirl and tend to always buy their foundation. I like this product, however, the sponge it came with started to disintegrate after using it for a short time.

This is your average, drug store foundation but it is the only one I'll buy! The coverage doesn't last all day but the application is smooth and light. Does not leave the skin feeling heavy, but as with most foundations, does get a bit oily after a days wear. Low cost, average...

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.

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”...

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.

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 love this foundation. I am super pale and it’s hard to find foundation that matches my skin but the lightest shade of this matches very well. It doesn’t oxidize and make me look orange either. It covers well enough that it evens out my skin tone but not too much where I...

I adore this foundation, but it seems they made it a bit darker in color. I love that its light and looks more natural with a dewy glow to it. You can apply more for more coverage which is also great, its not matte, but a dewy glow finish. Love it!

t is very heavy, the tones are lighter from the romal and dries very fast. It stays matt throughout the day and prevents the shine but being so heavy does not look natural.
