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 am in love with this!! I always have hard time finding the right foundation because I am very pale, with lots of freckles and cool under tones. I find that the most foundations for pale skin are for those with warm undertones, they just make me look like i have dirt on my...

Great for on the go, easy to keep in my purse and touch up my makeup during the day. Light coverage, slightly dewy finish. Comes with a small round makeup applicator that you press onto the sponge that contains the liquid makeup. Then you tap it onto your face.

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!...

This is my go-to when it comes to full coverage and drug store foundations. I was liking the Maybelline Fit Me matte, but that one has little to no coverage compared to this product! I love the mousse. It goes smoothly onto my skin, getting rid of any scars from acne! The only...
