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 keep coming back to Maybelline Fit Me. I'm a makeup lover, and I've tried a million foundations from Loreal to Estee Lauder. The price in comparison to the quality of this product just can't be beat. It's one of the only drugstore foundations that I feel doesn't oxidize and...

This foundation is lightweight and makes your skin look flawless with a natural finish. It is great for light coverage, but not full. I was easily able to find my matching colour.

This foundation...I want to love it so bad. It feels great. Its coverage is amazing. But no matter what, it always oxidizes on me. I'm certainly not trying to look like an oompa loompa!

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've tried tons of different foundations and some didn't work and others we're too expensive to use daily. Then I found this one and I was hooked! Full coverage, long lasting and I only need to switch between 2 shades all year. It's been my go to for 5 years now!
