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.

With my acne-prone, oily skin, finding a foundation that can cover up my imperfections at an affordable price is very difficult. In terms of drugstore brands, I have always been of mega fan of Maybelline and the quality of their products. This foundation comes in a wide range of...

I LOVE this affordable beauty foundation, It’s possibly the only foundation I have worn where people ask me what I’m wearing because it’s so natural. I love the shades, plenty of pale ones! And a great price too.

Formula is smooth and easy to apply. It dries quickly but doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry. You can use a little product for light coverage or build it up for more of a glam look.

This foundation worked decently for a drugstore foundation. I really liked the cushion and how well it worked for the price. They have a nice range of shades and undertones.

It’s a good product. I just dont recommend using it for an all day makeup because it can make your face look oily. But overall i still recommend it. It doesnt feel heavy on the face
Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

This is my go to foundation, full coverage, great for covering blemishes with a nice matte finish. Really good for anyone with skin on the oily side. However if you have any sort of dry patches on your skin it does tend to highlight this.

To achieve full coverage its way too heavy it's a wonderful substitute in a pinch but I prefer a lighter formula that fully covers without worry of being cakey

I have purchased a Maybelline superstay foundation in the shade of classic ivory. It covers all my blemishes and it gives a full coverage. It is lightweight and I feel like I have nothing on my face! Highly recommended!
CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

This is a great foundation if you're ever on the go and just need to apply a quick base. It is super affordable and applies easily. It doesnt have the greatest coverage if you're like me and have a lot of redness in your skin, but a few quick layers eventually provides a decent...

I’ve been using this product for close to 9 years. Suffering from the worst form of acne I have fooled the world. I’m thinking I’ve purchased over 400 of these guys. I apply with the average sponge (wet) to create a perfect complexion and even skin tone. I’ve also used...

This product is a must have!! I use to use Doublewear by Estee Lauder, But it does add up over the year in it being around $42 CAD a bottle and my sunglasses would pull it right off my nose in the summer, even with using a few different techniques, it just wasn’t “wowing”...

I love that this powder foundation is light weight but has really good coverage. The shades are natural and not "orangey" . I have acne prone skin and it has not caused me any break outs.

This foundation is sooooo good!! I have dry skin but I also don’t like looking shiny so I was nervous to try this but holy s*** this looked beautiful! It’s dewy but not shiny and it’s long lasting! The only thing I don’t like is that it’s not full coverage but it’s...
