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 recommend this foundation. I always apply mine with a beauty sponge and it's always a smooth and nice coverage. The price is affordable. I'm so happy and I've purchased this foundation multiple times. It's one of my go to.
L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Foundation

This foundation is not very true match, has a very orange undertone and it oxidises throughout the day. I was very disappointed with this foundation and judging by the other negative reviews I wasn't the only one.

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.

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
Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

278 reviews

Je n'ai pas trop aimer ce produit. Je trouve qu'il faisait des mottons sur notre visage. Il ne s'étendais pas trop bien. En plus, on ne peut plus trouver parce qu'il est discontinuer maintenant. Mais c'est pas une grosse perte. Je préfère en liquide ou crémeux mais pas de...
CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

This is the only product I use and it is so expensive. It only stays on for a couple of hours of coverage. I have tried different moisturizers and setting sprays but seem to have to keep reapplying it.

As a foundation addict, I have tried foundations from drugstore to high end; this is one of my top 3 favorites. It stays on all day, and is full coverage, you really don’t need a lot. It’s amazing.

When I first started out wearing foundation/ experimenting with makeup, this brand was my go to brand. I used it steadily for 2+ years as it is easy to find because it's available in most drugstores, Walmart etc and it is extremely affordable. PROS: - Cheap price. - Easy to...

This foundation...I want to love it so bad. It feels great. Its coverage is amazing. But no matter what, it always oxidizes on me. I'm certainly not trying to look like an oompa loompa!
L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation

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.

For the longest time i couldn’t find a powder that didn’t look orange on my skin and looked super thick but this one doesn’t do that it’s super full coverage but feels so lightweight. Would definitely recommend!

L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation

69 reviews

I did like this foundation, for light to medium coverage, it only gives you a dewy look if you apply a hydrating primer first. I do think there are better foundations out there is you want more of a glow or dewy look, but I do think this is good for people with normal to dry...
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation

109 reviews

Revlon Photoready foundation is a favourite of mine as it gives a lovely finish that both looks very natural and provides good cover. I have oily skin so this is perfect with great staying power and doesn't slide off my face like some oil based foundationds do.
