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 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

I love this foundation!! It gives me such a nice dewy finish and it blends so well with my skin. It's not high coverage so it's good for daily wear if you want a more natural dewy look. It absorbs into my skin and makes my skin look naturally flawless. This foundation also...

WHEN I TELL YOU THIS THING WORKS LIKE A MAGIC WOND, Im not kidding. This foundation is so smooth and creamy it looks like you don't even have any on but infact it make your skin look so much more better and brighter without it looking cakey

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.

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 is my go to foundation, full coverage, great for covering blemishes with a nice matte finish. Really good for anyone with skin on the oily side. However if you have any sort of dry patches on your skin it does tend to highlight this.
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 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

I use this nearly on the daily! It makes for a quick and easy "5 minute face" for work and has great coverage for the day. My skin is fairly sensitive to certain products and this foundation has never been an issue. Highly suggest this product if you are looking for a foundation!

I used to pay so much money for high-end foundation but once I found this it changed. Low cost with the features and quality of high-end makeup. Full coverage at its finest. .
Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation with Comfort Serum

If it is a special night and you want to have a flawless face, you can wear this one on. But I prefer to use this one at night. Under sunshine it looks a bit tick. Also sometimes for photoshoots, I am preparing my face with this.
