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 Dream Velvet Foundation

647 reviews

I stumbled upon this product when my usual foundation discontinued. And boy, am I glad I did! I love mousse/whipped foundations and this one is one of the better ones that I've found. I have uneven skin tone (sun spots, scars) so I need something that covers well. This...
Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

489 reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by how full coverage this foundation was for me. I didn't find it poreless but probably because I have large pores in general. I did love the matte finish which made me happy cause I now only shine where my highlight is. I love the range of colors this...
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

The Maybelline matte and poreless fit me foundation is just beyond perfect. I suffer from acne and oily skin for over 2 years and I never get the right foundation that meets my skin type. I finally decided to try this foundation and it was able to give my face full coverage...
L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation

This is by far one of the best drug store foundations i have ever tried! I have gone through a few bottles already. What keeps me buying this particular foundation is its long wearing ability. It lasts me the entire day! It is also a definite colour match on my skin. It comes in...
Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation

Great for on the go, easy to keep in my purse and touch up my makeup during the day. Light coverage, slightly dewy finish. Comes with a small round makeup applicator that you press onto the sponge that contains the liquid makeup. Then you tap it onto your face.

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

195 reviews

I really wanted to like this product more than I did. I think I chose a shade a bit too orange for me though. It’s silky and moussy and a pleasure to put on. I find if I moisturizers first my face gets a bit gummy/tacky. Likely because the foundation itself is mousturizing. I...

This foundation is really long lasting as stated on the product however I find the color changes after I wear it for 30 mins, I am not sure if the foundation oxidize and changes color. I would say the price for such quality foundation is really reasonable. The size of the...

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!...
Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation Stick

85 reviews

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...

Honestly- this lasts for a long time and it looks so natural. Cannot recommend enough! Sometimes I will use in addition with the liquid foundation, but mostly because it looks so natural.

Covergirl TruBlend is my go to liquid foundation. I have been using it for years and absolutely love it. It hides any imperfections that I might have and it works perfect from day to night. I would highly recommend this product over the pricey department store brands. Very cost...
Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

94 reviews

This is my go-to when it comes to full coverage and drug store foundations. I was liking the Maybelline Fit Me matte, but that one has little to no coverage compared to this product! I love the mousse. It goes smoothly onto my skin, getting rid of any scars from acne! The only...
