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.

Mary Kay Full-coverage Foundation

The Best Foundation in the World This is the best foundation for incredible longevity, excellent coverage, and a beautiful finish. It makes my skin look flawless and beautiful. I don't use concealer, but with this foundation I definitely don't need it.
Lorac Oil Free Neutralizer

This was just OK. I read so many great reviews for it on various websites, but I was somewhat disappointed when I got it home. I had been looking for something to cover my redness, and also lighten up the look of my foundations (I'm extremely pale in the winter). I tried using...
Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lights Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

5 reviews

The tint lends itself toward your skin color with a kiss of highlight. Made for younger skin in how it covers but perfect for the spring/summer when you don't care to wear a heavy make-up. This is the perfect foundation for warmer months and SPF 15 makes it all the better
L'Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Foundation

I’m 29 and I’ve spent years trying to find a decent liquid foundation that is well priced and just the right balance between light weight, good coverage, moisturizer and the right tone and this one really does the trick. It’s not thick, it makes your face super soft and...
Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

This is definitely a full coverage foundation, very heavy and caky. If you need something for photos/videos I would recommend this as it will cover every small blemish on your face. As far as an every day foundation I would stay away from this as you can feel it on your face. It...
Almay Smart Shade Makeup

For awhile it worked really well, the colour was good blended well, light coverage. It was good. One day I put some on my hand in the morning and it was orange. Like a really ugly bronzer orange. It took forever to take off. I've used better from the drugstore

Je recommande ce produit à toutes celles qui aiment un look naturel avec un pouvoir de couvrance exceptionnel. Léger, il ne masque pas et révèle un teint harmonieux.
Maybelline New York SuperStay Silky Foundation

This is a great foundation but I find that it's a little on the greasy side and I don't like that about it. Otherwise a great cover for a foundation. I'm a pretty big fan of their cover ups.
Signature Minerals Mineral Foundation

3 reviews

By far THE best Mineral Makeup product out there. Most people have never heard of it. I tried all of the other well known mineral products before discovering Signature Minerals and they blow away the other companies. Better coverage, makes me look 10 years younger than I am...

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...

I have been using this product for several years now and I find it great. Great coverage and lasts all day. No need for foundation. I have sensitive skin and this works perfect for me
Quo Foundation Primer

6 reviews

Quo Foundation Primer is THE primer that made primer an essential part of my beauty routine. I had tried other drugstore brands as well as some high end primers and couldn’t imagine what all the fuss was about primers in general, some even made my foundation application worse!...
Thi's White Tea Seamless Foundation

1 review

I love this foundation! I am Asian, and upon googling for makeup that goes well with Asian skin tones, I discovered Thi Cosmetics. At 42 USD, a pop, this foundation is quite pricey, but its performance makes up for the priciness by far. I have combination skin, and it neither...
Bellapierre Mineral Foundation

it’s my go-to foundation at the mo, beating all my high end alternatives. Love the fact that it is less renowned yet does a good job on my skin, although now that rainy days has come it’s too drying on my skin.

I really liked it the powder did not make me break out at all and it covered well without caking up.. Just didn't seem to last long enough! I would definitely buy this again and recommend it to friends and family..

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...

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.

I use foundation everyday. I have lots of beauty marks and skin discolouration. It works amazingly covering all my facial flaws. I would never leave the house without it. It goes on very easily, never cakes..
