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

I was abit hesitant to use this as I had heard of it breaking people out and I tend to stick to higher end brands. But this is one of those products that remind me that everyone is different and that there are definitely great finds at the drugstore. Although this did oxidize...
L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation

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

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.

So when i first bought Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation, i had used a flat foundation brush and hated it. Using my fingers provided a good buildable heavy foundation then i found the perfect brush. A percision cut rounded foundation brush and it applies this...

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...

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

120 reviews

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

114 reviews

Unfortunately this foundation was a hard no for me. I found my face looking and feeling dry and cakey. The makeup sunk into any fine lines, separated and oxidized. That said, it did lead to Infallible Pro-Glow, which is now a fave of mine. I have combination skin (oily-ish T...
Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex

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

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!...

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!

CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation

101 reviews

I really didn't like this foundation at all, first I couldn't find a shade that actually matched right and you have to blend it in right away or wherever you dabbed it dries in a weird patch and on top of that it separated when I put anything on top, so I definitely do not...
Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

89 reviews

I think this is the worst foundation I have ever tried. It was on sale so figured i would give it a shot, first off it is SUPER thick, so thick its hard to squeeze it out of the tube, it doesnt blend well at all, to get it to blend properly i had to use a REALLY damp beauty...

Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation

84 reviews

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.
