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 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.
Maybelline New York Fit Me Hydrate + Smooth Foundation

J'aime beaucoup les fonds de teint crémeux car il donne une belle apparence pour la peau , hydrate beaucoup , et ne donne pas un effet poudré . Celui ci est parfait car il en faut peu pour changer l'apparence d'une peau qui peu devenir parfaite en peau de temps. La plupart des...

I’m 29 and I’ve spent years trying to find a decent liquid foundation that is well priced and just the right balance between light weight, good coverage, moisturizer and the right tone and this one really does the trick. It’s not thick, it makes your face super soft and...
COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

Light weight and moisturizing foundation. Scented nicely. Could have more shades though. I stared using it when I turned 30 as other foundations began to look a bit cakey.
Maybelline New York Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation

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.
Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

I received this product free to try as a disclaimer. The moose consistency was interesting but I did not find that it added much to the product overall and left a cakey appearance and feel. The coverage was not very extensive either. Overall I don’t think that I would use this...
Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

281 reviews

This is definitely a full coverage foundation, very heavy and caky. If you need something for photos/videos I would recommend this as it will cover every small blemish on your face. As far as an every day foundation I would stay away from this as you can feel it on your face. It...
Maybelline New York Super Stay 24H Full Coverage  Foundation

143 reviews

Sits nicely on the skin, as long as it isn't too textured. Lasts long but definitely faded by the end of the night. I think for a drugstore foundation, its totally worth it and does a great job.
CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

160 reviews

I use the COVERGIRL Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation every day for work. Medium coverage but definitely buildable, longer wearing if set with a powder. The finish is beautiful with my combination/oily skin. I get a lot of compliments when I wear this foundation. Shade matched my...

Revlon is one of my favorite brands. I've been using the products for many years. I absolutely love this color stay foundation. It's the perfect match and it blends in with my skin complexion.
COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

130 reviews

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...
L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation

118 reviews

I think this foundation is great if you have oily skin, but I don't think those with combination skin would enjoy it very much. I much prefer using this in the summer instead of winter. I found that the foundation clung to the dry spots on my face, and ended up making my face...

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.
Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Makeup 4-in-1

Now this is a 4-1 I love. It covers, goes on flawless, looks amazing and doesn't leave that cakey look. My friend has roseca and swears by it too. The compact is easy to handle and not cheap.

COVERGIRL TRUblend Liquid Foundation

Iam very fair skinned (thank you red hair!) and I have the hardest time finding foundation that doesn’t look orange on my skin. I decided to try this foundation and got the lightest tone but guess what!? It was too light, i ended up going 2 shades up and it was like my skin in...
