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
I usually prefer high end foundations however the Maybelline New York Dream Velvet Foundation is pretty good! I found it to have very good coverage. I suffer from acne, black heads and lots of scarring for cystic acne as a teenager and I found this to cover it all pretty well. I...

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I love drugstore makeup aisles! The Maybelline FIT Me foundation is one of my favorite finds. I have very dry skin, and I find that this product goes on smoothly without flaking my skin. It is lightweight enough to use during the summer months without becoming greasy.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation
The shade range is pretty good, especially with the new shades added. I find that the matte and poreless formula has more coverage than the hydrating one. I love it, but it can look pretty cakey sometimes.

bareMinerals SPF15 Foundation
Oh this foundation is my holy grail! It is so beautiful and buildale. The key to this is to add a little bit at a time and really buff it in. Layers..the key is layers..you are going to think you are piling it on but you aren't. Really buff it in because it then mixes with the...

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
This foundation line has a variety of shades and is super lightweight.It is light coverage and blends well but the bottle is awkward and makes it difficult to get the last of it out of the bottle.

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
I do not understand why this foundation is so highly regarded. I find the coverage really poor, and texture completely cakey and unnatural when built up even slightly for more coverage. I've tried several different application methods with brushes and fingers and well as...

Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation
I am thrilled with how easily and evenly the Dream Cushion foundation covered my skin, as well as how perfectly it matched my very fair skin tone. My only disappointment was that it ran out far more quickly than a bottle of regular liquid.

Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
The Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation is a great full coverage foundation, A little goes a long way when using this foundation. The container seems so small but it lasts quite a while since you need so little to cover your whole face. This foundation is quite...

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation
When I first bought this foundation I was worried it was not going to live up to the hype. I found that the price was a bit expensive but I had to try it. The bottle does not come with a pump so I usually tilt bottle over my beauty blender to get a little dab out. With this...

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
I purchased the Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind concealer after seeing so many awesome reviews and people raving about it online and in my friends group. It is a bit pricey compared to other drugstore concealers but you can watch for it to go on sale to purchase for your...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
The CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation has a very thick consistency and is FULL coverage. I am always looking to try new full coverage foundations that are thick and don't require too many layers. I am starting to develop fine lines near my eyes and near my mouth in my...

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Foundation Stick
I normally use tient miracle foundation. Decided to check it out after reading all the reviews on here. Way too thick! I used a primer underneath. It emphasized my pores and lasted about an hour on my fave in 25 degree weather, even after setting it with a powder. The appearance...

Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation
This foundation has been my go-to for a few years. They've changed the formula, but it's still amazing. It's truly long-lasting and doesn't give a cakey feel. I love the pump action bottle, it's convenient and easy to use. I have redness and some acne scars and it covers them up...

CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation
this foundation is not bad for the price, it does cover fairly well, but very liquidy and so have more than once dropped some on my clothes while getting ready. Maybe if it would not have been in a tube might have made it easier to use.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation
Le fond de teint est très léger. On n’a pas l’impression de lourdeur sur notre peau toute la journée. Il couvre très bien les imperfections de la peau. C’est un produit qui est très abordable et qui offre un excellent rapport qualité/prix. Il s’étend également...

MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid with SPF 15
This is probably the 6th MAC studio fix fluid spf 15 foundation that I've purchased. I think it is worth the $30. It is a full coverage foundation and is very creamy and smooth when applied with a brush or sponge. I've tried other foundations, more expensive and less expensive...

L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation
This is another foundation I enjoy. I prefer the Pro Glow over this matte version but both are really nice. Easy to work with & blend, and doesn't go too terribly dark on me through the day!
