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

413 reviews

This might be the best foundation the drugstore has to offer. I've already recommended friends and family to try this product and none have been disappointed. The one tiny tiny downside is it does oxidize ever so slightly by the end of the day. BUT this foundation is so light...

I love this because it blends well with my skin tone and its liquid form makes it really easy to apply. It also has a very light shade, which means you can mix it with your other foundations.
Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation

I loved the way this looked on my skin. It felt very comfortable and did a good job of evening out my skin tone. Unfortunately it was more expensive than the Maybelline FitMe which I also love and seemed to last a 3rd of the time that those bottles do. That is the only reason I...
Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

This is a great foundation that dries down matte & gives you an airbrushed look. It comes in 12 different shades which is great when I have a bit of a tan in the summer but then also when I'm a bit more pale in the winter months. I apply it with my fingers & it gives nice...

I tried this foundation and liked it. It is not greasy and has pretty good coverage. i just found that there isn't much in the little jar I think its for someone that doesn't need a full face of foundation.

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

I always use Ready Set Gorgeous over bb cream and primer. I mainly use this on and under my eyes. My trick is I buy a shade lighter 110 is the shade I get. It hides my wrinkles very well, and my dark spots under my eyes.It's a foundation for oily skin so it works great for oil...

This foundation is so easy to blend out and it cover so well without leaving you shiny or too matte and not cakey at all. It's the perfect medium! I also love the fact it has sunscreen in it! This foundation cleans to have the staying power of a primer, but I still use a primer...
L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation

It is super long wearing and medium to full coverage. I am yellow-toned and tried shade 104 although i think 106 is better for my skin tone. Honestly a great price for a foundation. Under$20 and feels like over $40

C'est le fond de teint que j'utilise. Je le trouve vraiment bien! Il est bien couvrant, tient toute la journée, la couleur n'est pas du tout orangé comme certains fond de teint et il donne un beau teint lisse. Je recommande !!
CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup

this is definitely my tried and true drugstore brand of foundation. it applies very well on the skin and never ends up looking fake or cakey when used in combination with other products. I would like to see them expand their shade range, though!

It’s one of the best foundation that I have come across. This is one of my top 5 choice when it comes to a stick foundation ! It gives an even cover and does not make skin itchy in any way!
Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Makeup 4-in-1

93 reviews

I have been using this stuff for years and don't plan on switching. I find its so light and goes on easy without looking like I have a ton of make up on. I don't wear a lot of make up so I find liquid foundations look awful on me but this one is smooth and doesn't look caked...
CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation

100 reviews

I wanted to love it but I find the foundation even when shaken still pumps out looking like white lotion. It does not provide much coverage at all and the formula isn't the greatest. However it is one of the cheaper foundations and I have always loved covergirl so I will use...
Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

I picked this product up from walmart in the beginning of the year because Iw anted to try drugstore matte foundations. The packaging looks very nice, but I think that's the only place that they really invested in this product. I do get that it's a mousse type of a foundation so...

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation

This mineral loose powder worked really well to set my foundation. I also used it through out the day to help absorb any oil patches that came up. The only downfall is that it's loose, so it can get everywhere if you're not careful.
