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 Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

574 reviews

This one was perfect for my skin. I love a matte finish with my make up as I can't stand dewy skin. This one helped to cover and blemishes i had on my skin and left the skin nice and matte without drying it out. I have purchased several times. It also comes in a variety of...

Love this foundation! Especially at this price!! I don't feel guilty about getting multiple colours for throughout the year and different formulas (I use the matte and poreless in summer).
L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation

333 reviews

I bought this foundation and I would say that the colour matched good but I found it to leave my skin very oily and does not seem to last well on my skin but it is good value for money and it may work very well for someone else

Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

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 foundation is so light and creamy. When applied to the skin it goes on evenly and covers all lines and flaws. The foundation although light gives a good coverage and lasts all day. Bargain price for such a good product.

I love this foundation! It works really well on small lines on my face. The best part is the Broad spectrum of 28. You may have to touch up if your face sweats and or gets wet.
Maybelline Super Stay 24H Full Coverage  Foundation

131 reviews

After using Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation for four years, I transitioned to using the 24H Full Coverage Foundation and never turned back. This foundation creates such an even base, despite my acne-prone skin. It needs to be set with powder on oilier skin, but doesn't leave my...
CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

This product is nice because the packaging is small enough to be able to travel with it. It gives good coverage -- not full but enough to help cover redness. I liked that it was squeezable and could use as much as needed
Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation

152 reviews

This is my go to foundation and has been for years. I wear the fairest shade and it matches me perfectly. The foundation is full coverage and there’s the option to buy it for oily skin
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

128 reviews

This review is for Classic Ivory - 910 which is one of the lighter shades, but I found it did give me a bit of sun-kissed glow. I think everyone wants to make their morning routine just that little bit quicker and this foundation makes that happen. Outlast all-day foundation...
L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation

117 reviews

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”...
CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup

177 reviews

When I opened this foundation, I did notice a scent which I can’t say I’m overly fond of. Despite this, I tried it anyway. The foundation is creamy and application was easy. I used a brush, but any method would work if that’s your choice. The color I tried was Creamy...
Revlon ColorStay Makeup with Softflex

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.

I usually always use this product in my everyday makeup even when I’m not applying my hole mAkeup routine for the day I will use a little of the fit me concealer under my eye or if I have a little blemish to hide!!
Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Makeup 4-in-1

101 reviews

I have been using our mineral make-up for a few years now and I still love it! I find that this powder is amazing on my combination skin - not drying anything out, but keeping my face oil free all day long! I use the light powder and have no problems with it at all! Although...
CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Foundation

Great price, picked up when I was in a pinch. Colour in bottle starts to separate, and the coverage isn't great but it does its job to a moderate effectiveness.
L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation

This foundation is light to medium buildable coverage, dewy finish, very hydrating, light weight, pretty good lasting power. I would recommend this for normal to dry skin types, however every type could wear this. Such a gorgeous skin like formula. I am a professional Makeup...
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation

Revlon Photoready foundation is a favourite of mine as it gives a lovely finish that both looks very natural and provides good cover. I have oily skin so this is perfect with great staying power and doesn't slide off my face like some oil based foundationds do.
