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.

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.

This foundation was very drying on my skin, it clung to every dry patch and exaggerated them. I ended up looking messy and very powdery. There is almost no coverage, and only 4 shade ranges. If you have oily skin maybe this would work for you. It did work as a bronzer though!

I was looking for a wet-to-dry foundation for on the go and I picked this up on sale at Shopper's. It goes on quite well and has very good buildable coverage. Doesn't feel cakey or dry on my skin nor has it settled in my fine lines. Seems to be the perfect matte finish for my...

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...

I bought mine months ago. This foundation is a lil bit liquidy. Full coverage which I love. It doesn't have a strong scent. If you're skin is dry stay away to this foundation better buy the pro glow one cos this foundation tends to mattify your face or if you still plan to use...

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...
