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

648 reviews

This foundation works well, it didn't make my skin flaky or oily which was great, it is also reasonably priced. I didn't love the scent but it didn't irritate my skin at all ( although my eyes watered a bit ) Would recommend, but isn't my first choice,

Great coverage, so many shades to pick from. The foundation goes on smooth, and is affordable enough I can switch my colour as I tan or fade with the seasons
Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

503 reviews

This product is great for a drugstore foundation. It is very affordable for the quality. I love the shade range and it is one of the only drugstore foundations that comes in a shade light enough for my fair skin. It is mattifying but I find that sometimes it can be a bit drying...
L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation

I have yellow undertones and was able to find a good colour match. Overall I like the way it wears, but will be looking for another drugstore foundation to replace it for a couple reasons. 1st: among drugstore options it's a bit more on the expensive side. 2nd: it's difficult to...

I am totally in love with with this product! I have finally found a foundation that gives a natural look and feels like you are wearing nothing. I must admit though that it is pricey for the amount you get, but it is often on sale. Love the compact because it fits perfectly...
Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

I have combination skin which means most foundations highlight the texture in my dry areas and streak in my oily zones. Not this foundation. I get a perfect application every time that lasts all day. And it works well with my other makeup making them easy to blend. I will cry...

I first bought this when I was just starting learning how to do my makeup. I have to say its the only foundation that perfectly matches my skin. I ldid think the product was small though and it finish faster than my liquid foundations
CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

In the last 10 years I am a faithful user of Ageless Foundation and have tried others that do not cover lines, from aging and moisturizers as this foundation does. Timeless and ageless goes a long way as you get older.
CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

I love how light feeling it is & easy to apply. If i had to change one thing I'd add a lighter shade for pale woman. It's perfect for me from May-Oct cause I get outside & tan as much as I can. In the winter I lose my tan & am super pale. I have blonde hair so it's hard to math...
Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation

I brought two separate colors of this foundation 425 Caramel and 420 Mahogany each cost me $10.00 for 1.0Fl oz. These product were not at all full over coverage and it did not stay for 24 hours. More like light coverage and you have to apply several times at least 4 coats to...

Ça été un de mes premiers fond de teint à utiliser. Il m’en reste encore dans ma collection. Je l’adore, il y a une pompe pour avoir la quantité désirer. Ce fond de teint est assez couvrant et se travaille très bien. Une bouteille peut durer longtemps mais le seul...

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.
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!...

I have been using this product for 13 years now!! Back when it was only available on the Shopping Channel! Started out purchasing a sample box of different Pur Mineral products when it was the Show Stopper one day and fell in love! Tried to go back to my old brand as was...
Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation Stick

I personally found this to be an okay product. i am more of a foundation gal, and so when I heard Maybelline was coming out with a foundation stick, I had to try it. Previously, I had also tried the Fit Me concealer (which I absolutely love) and the liquid foundation (which was...

This has been my go to foundation lately. It is full coverage without looking fake or caked on. It lasts the day and does not budge. Honestly you can’t beat the price either. It is easy to find and I absolutely love it.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

95 reviews

This foundation's consistency is very thick and I did not like how it feels on my skin. After I applied this on my skin it did not feel very smooth instead it felt sticky. However, it does have a good matte finish and the shade that I bought perfectly suited my skin. I do not...
