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 the cute pink packaging and the pump comes in handy. Medium time to buildable coverage, the creamy texture is perfect for my dry skin & it doesn’t budge- it lasts all day. Flawless looking.
Perfect Finish Foundation- Primark

I usually use a Maybelline Foundation- I found that this one made me quite oily. I found this in Primark on a shopping trip after hearing about it from a friend. I was surprised, it smells lovely and gives great coverage and doesn’t make me oily! For £2.50 you can’t go...

Love the fact that this has SPF30!! However I found it very drying on my combo skin, made my skin feel very tight. I ended up returning it. Coverage was good though, maybe better for those with oilier skin.

I bought this & was not too happy. The amount of product you receive is disappointing for the price. It costs around the same as Lancome. I stopped using Lancome as it was brought to my attention that they test on animals.!!! The IT is a but sticky when applying. I wanted that...

Full coverage foundation, buildable also. Resists very well even without a primer. Does not dry out your skin. Depending on your skin type, might need a fixing powder. Amazing quality for the price
No7 Stay Perfect Superlight Foundation

Although more than I would usually spend on Foundation, it is very good coverage and light on my skin, also very good colour match. I don't like paying over the odds for it though, having said that, I feel most makeup brands are SO overpriced! But good for what it is and...

This is great for oily skin, good for touch ups throughout the day! I love it!’ The sponge has charcoal in it which is amazing for absorbing the excess oil!

Had a hard time with this foundation at first but after moisturizing my skin well and applying it thinly with a sponge it gives the most flawless long lasting lightweight coverage. I only need Antony drop for my whole face too.

This product is fantastic for my combination skin which can lean more on the dry side. Its very lightweight so doesn't feel heavy on the skin and has a lovely natural look. Medium coverage with a satin finish
Catrice Cosmetics HD Liquid Coverage Foundation

As a lady in her 40s I found a lot of foundations really stuck in my lines. I saw this on Tik tok and when I looked it up it was less than £7.00 ! So bought one ! It gives just the right amount if coverage and not only does it not settle in my lines it blurs them a little...

This is not a very well known foundation which is crazy because it’s amazing!! It is on the expensive side around $53 but it literally last me a whole year. A teeny tiny bit of product can cover your whole face!! It’s a all in one product that contains sunscreen and can be...

Finally a foundation product that actually works as a good prima. I love it. Stays on and doesn't go clumpy when your skin gets oily. Makes it look feet if anything.

Max Factor Miracle Second Skin

Foundation was a little too dark for my skin but blended in well with a make up brush. A good sized tube with pump so you can easily control how much you use. Didn't need to use powder on top as the foundation had quite a powdery finish. Lasts well all day or evening. If I...

Fantastic bargain from Primark make-up range. I use high end usually and this isn't massively different at £2.50! Gives a good finish and is layer-able. Medium to full coverage and isn't heavy on the skin...perfect for daytime use.

The best foundation I have ever used. Goes on really well. I apply with a sponge or brush. It’s a lightweight texture and is non oily. It has buildable coverage too which is perfect! Is great for my dry skin too and helps it look hydrated!
