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
Its average bb cream type foundation but it doesnt stay on an the stuff transfers on clothes and other people if you hug someone else. I like the formula that its velvet but it doesnt stay on and its yellow and blotchy. Also over priced.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I have always been a fan of Maybelline. I recently bought the Fit Me Foundation and was so pleased with how well it absorbed into my skin. I applied it on once during the morning and never had to reapply it all day long. It makes my skin look and feel so beautiful. It was...

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
This used to be my go-to foundation when i was using powder. It goes on very well and as great coverage. This foundation is great for anyone that is looking for build able coverage and something that won't clog your pores.

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
This is a pretty expensive foundation which could be replaced by the Revlon Colorstay. However, this does give flawless finish when you are getting a lot of photos taken. This is not good for an everyday foundation because it is on the heavier side and you will look like you are...

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
This is the only foundation I have used for the past 3 years. I have combination skin and it adjusts to any oil or dry patches on my skin, it's the silkiest and most natural foundation you can get at the drugstore in my opinion. Whenever I use anything else I look like an orange...

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation
I really like this foundation, I have trouble sticking to just one so I typically try new ones each time one runs out. I really liked this one, it didnt make my skin feel really oily, and it had good coverage. I would buy this again for sure!

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
This is my all-time favourite powder. It is full coverage and sets my makeup perfectly. It is a great finishing touch to my foundation. I have been through about four of these already and I intend to buy more.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
I bought this foundation on a recommendation from a store employee. I was looking for a foundation that would stay in place through sweat. I dance so I needed something that wouldn't budge during practices. This foundation does the trick! I can put in on in the morning and it is...

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Foundation Stick
This foundation stick is buttery smooth and blends like a dream. I would recommend a foundation brush over a beauty blender for application as the blender tends to soak up more products. Coverage is full which is amazing. Wear time is decent I touched up a few times after a...

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
EXCELLENT coverage - this is the only drugstore brand liquid foundation that offers the same coverage as high-end brands. It is most certainly worth the price. It lasts over 24 hours as well, no need for touching up even if you sweat or cry.

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
This is an inexpensive foundation that works far better than I thought! It has pretty good coverage, and is buildable. The colour is very true to what my skin colour is. It looks great on, and lasts all day, which is good because I have oily skin. In addition, it does not...

This stuff is THE BOMB. I love how its top quality for a very affordable price. It is super matte, lasts all day long and is medium to full coverage. This is my all time favourite foundation!

Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex
Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex is a great all day foundation. It is full coverage and its tough enough to go all the way into the late hours without flaking or looking caked on.

CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup
felt terrible on my skin, half the time it was too liquid to work with and felt gross on once it settled onto my skin, didn't really irritate my skin, but i could never wait to get it off
