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

648 reviews

This foundation works well, it didn't make my skin flaky or oily which was great, it is also reasonably priced. I didn't love the scent but it didn't irritate my skin at all ( although my eyes watered a bit ) Would recommend, but isn't my first choice,
Maybelline New York Fit Me Hydrate + Smooth Foundation

604 reviews

As someone on a tight budget this foundation is great. Price is usually the first thing you see as a consumer looking at a store shelf, so as first impressions that was good. I have dry skin and this did not irritate my skin at all. Which was a huge relief because I have...

Texture and the result on the face is perfect, it stays a really long time on the skin, I love it, eventhough I have normal to dry skin so... Wonderful, because it doesn’t dry my skin at all.
L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation

I have yellow undertones and was able to find a good colour match. Overall I like the way it wears, but will be looking for another drugstore foundation to replace it for a couple reasons. 1st: among drugstore options it's a bit more on the expensive side. 2nd: it's difficult to...

I am totally in love with with this product! I have finally found a foundation that gives a natural look and feels like you are wearing nothing. I must admit though that it is pricey for the amount you get, but it is often on sale. Love the compact because it fits perfectly...
Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

I've been trying so hard to find a drug store foundation that I LOVE. Until now, I have been unsuccessful. I regularly use Estee Lauder Double Wear but trying to stick to a much smaller budget, I really wanted to find something I love as much. And I think I have to say I...

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

198 reviews

really wanted to like this product more than I did. I think I chose a shade a bit too orange for me though. It’s silky and moussy and a pleasure to put on. I find if I moisturizers first my face gets a bit gummy/tacky. Likely because the foundation itself is mousturizing. I...
CoverGirl Ready, Set GORGEOUS Foundation

142 reviews

I love how light feeling it is & easy to apply. If i had to change one thing I'd add a lighter shade for pale woman. It's perfect for me from May-Oct cause I get outside & tan as much as I can. In the winter I lose my tan & am super pale. I have blonde hair so it's hard to math...
Revlon ColorStay 24hr Foundation

I brought two separate colors of this foundation 425 Caramel and 420 Mahogany each cost me $10.00 for 1.0Fl oz. These product were not at all full over coverage and it did not stay for 24 hours. More like light coverage and you have to apply several times at least 4 coats to...

This foundation is amazing. I'm very pale, and the lightest shade is perfect for my skin tome. It covers up everything really good. I would highly recommend this product.
L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Foundation

This foundation is a miracle for oily skin types however, it can be drying for those who have combo/dry skin. It stays on for the entire day - very similar to the Estee Lauder double wear.

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.
CoverGirl Clean Oil-Control Liquid Makeup

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!...

I have been using this product for 13 years now!! Back when it was only available on the Shopping Channel! Started out purchasing a sample box of different Pur Mineral products when it was the Show Stopper one day and fell in love! Tried to go back to my old brand as was...
Maybelline New York Fit Me Foundation Stick

I personally found this to be an okay product. i am more of a foundation gal, and so when I heard Maybelline was coming out with a foundation stick, I had to try it. Previously, I had also tried the Fit Me concealer (which I absolutely love) and the liquid foundation (which was...

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

96 reviews

This mousse foundation has me in two minds. There are some pros to it for sure, but also many cons. In that regard, I feel like it wouldn't be a foundation I would buy again, but might work better for a young person with better quality skin. First, let's talk about the colour...
