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.

This foundation is great for people with dry skin! It is affordable and has great coverage. I top it off with powder if I know I'll be out for a while but it still looks dewy and great!

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

This foundation is perfect for warm to hot weather because it's not heavy on the face. It feels super lightweight. I like that it doesn't oxidize and it can give medium to full coverage.

To achieve full coverage its way too heavy it's a wonderful substitute in a pinch but I prefer a lighter formula that fully covers without worry of being cakey

This is a great foundation if you're ever on the go and just need to apply a quick base. It is super affordable and applies easily. It doesnt have the greatest coverage if you're like me and have a lot of redness in your skin, but a few quick layers eventually provides a decent...

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...

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 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'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!
