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.

Iam very fair skinned (thank you red hair!) and I have the hardest time finding foundation that doesn’t look orange on my skin. I decided to try this foundation and got the lightest tone but guess what!? It was too light, i ended up going 2 shades up and it was like my skin in...

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.
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation

111 reviews

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.
NYX Total Control Drop Foundation

This foundation covers acne well since its very buildable and its amazingly good for dry skin since its a runny formula. It doesn't look cakey or oxidize.
Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

This foundation is a good matte foundation but a bit too matte for me. I would mix it with one of my other less matte foundations for a more natural look with heavy coverage.

I used this foundation/concealer when I wanted a medium coverage look. It worked really well but I did have to use two different shades to make my skin tone
Younique Mineral Touch Liquid Foundation

This foundation is great. Very light weight but full coverage. The price per the amount of product could be more but still worth it. I find this one great in comparison the Mac liquid foundation.
Maybelline Mineral Power Loose Powder Foundation

89 reviews

I've been using this loose powder for a long time. It has great coverage and a little goes along way. I do find my skin gets oily half way thru the day but that could just because I have very oily skin. I do find the price a bit high but it seems to work the best for me compared...
Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation

i dont like that its “dewy” it melts off quick which is a shame because it looks so good when first applied. don’t recommend for oily skin unless you carry oil blotting paper or powder around with you
The Ordinary Serum Foundation

41 reviews

The ordinary serum foundation has got to be hands down the best foundation I’ve used in years. The consistency is very very runny, don’t let that fool you. It is a lightweight buildable foundation and never ever looks cakey. It provides so much coverage even on blemished...
Too Faced Peach Perfect Foundation

37 reviews

I have forever been on the lookout for a good matte foundation, and this is the one! It is best used in conjunction with the Too Faced peach primer for a more matte and long lasting look. It lasts LEGIT all day long and definitely lives up to what it says it does, and does not...
L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I was stoked to use this when it came out yrs ago. It was TERRIBLE, piled my foundation up. Added a pink hue to my face. I thought ok I used to much. Stared over and still had a pink cast to my face. It did nothing to help anything. I took it back for a refund.
Clinique beyond perfecting foundation + concealer

31 reviews

I haven’t previously tried any foundation products by Clinique but I thought I would give this a shot and I was impressed overall! It provides long lasting and full coverage while moisturizing your skin. It is not at all greasy or cakey. It’s great on its own or with a...

this foundation blends into my skin extremely well and you can never tell i’m wearing foundation, because all though the coverage is very good the foundation is light weight!
Maybeline Fit Me mate + poreless

22 reviews

If you moisturize your face before applying this foundation, it helps to keep it looking smooth and fresh. I was extremely lucky to have purchased this for half price. I am happy that this foundation does not get cakey after several hours of wear. You will find that if you wear...

Awesome product! Looks natural and doesn’t fade works well with all skin types. It’s light and perfect on all blemishes! My go to product to use daily!
The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

33 reviews

I'm so surprised by this product! It's one of the cheapest yet best foundations I've ever purchased. If you need a lot of coverage this may not be for you but I think it's great for everyday use if you want something lighter just to brighten up your face a bit
L'Oréal Infallible Foundation

This will last all day,especially if you use a primer with it. Lots of shades. Kind of pricey for a drug store foundation. But it you need your make up to last all day this is a good choice.
