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.

"Fit Me" does fit my skin colour. It is easy to apply and covers well. I use it for "every day" make up. If I need to look my best, I use a different foundation but that one is quite pricey so on the days that I am running errands, etc. and do choose to 'fix my face,' this...

Je l'aime, ça cache les imperfections et il dure assez longtemps dans la journée. Sauf que il coute chere pour rien et en plus notre peau devient grasse alors c'est moyen

I paid 6 dollars, but it's not even worth it, the texture is very creamy and has no coverage, I found it very bad, it does not cover anything, I would not buy again

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...

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

Really great product for someone that wants minimal coverage. When used as a light coverage it is a really nice airy foundation. Leaves skin feeling soft and hides pores well. Not good if you wear a lot of foundation like I do though because it oxidizes and leaves skin oily if...

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.

J'ai essayée ce fond de teint pour la première fois puisque j'en avais entendue parler sur des vidéos youtube. La première application j'ai vraiment aimé, mais après quelques heure, le fond de teint craque, et ce même avec un primer et il ne cache plus mes rougeurs.

I have dry skin and get the type for dry skin. I also have fair skin and have a hard time finding a drugstore foundation that matching my skin tone. Their lightest shade works perfect and lasts all day! It blends well and has great medium coverage

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 have been using our mineral make-up for a few years now and I still love it! I find that this powder is amazing on my combination skin - not drying anything out, but keeping my face oil free all day long! I use the light powder and have no problems with it at all! Although...

Maybelline New York Super Stay 24H Full Coverage  Foundation

This foundation is extremely full coverage. A small pump covers the whole face effectively. It blends nicely with both a brush and a sponge. My only issue is that it does not last long on my oily skin. It tends to break up after a couple hours and transfers easily.

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!

I went to the drugstore to find a foundation and ended up trying this. I personally found this foundation very dry and decently thick on my skin. It did stay matte for a while but I didn’t like how dry it made my skin feel. I think it’d be a better foundation for someone...
