PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation by Jane Iredale

"I wear this wet-dry pressed powder, spf 20 foundation in Golden Glow. For reference, my Bare Escentuals color match is Golden Medium. JI Golden Glow is lighter, and less yellow than the BE Golden Medium, and more beige/light tan than gold, but it's the closest BE to IE match for me. Riviera and Suntan are wonderful colors for medium skin tones as well, but the undertones seem more "neutral", while Golden Glow is definitely for "warm" skin. The Jane Iredale compact is just gorgeous, and using it makes me feel refined and elegant, (and I need all the help I can get...!) When I was a child, my mother, aunts, and grandmothers would carry their Estee Lauder powders (for their noses) in artistic, ornate compacts. JI's heavy, gold colored, high quality compact makes me remember how much I longed to wear makeup just because it was pretty and fun to touch. This compact is nice to carry around to use powder as needed, but I like best to apply it in the morning as an all-over face foundation, because it lasts so long I rarely need touch-ups until late in the day. Like most mineral makeups this adds a small bit of healthy "glow", but in this case, it really is a healthy glow; not glitter, which makes my pores look 80x worse than they look without makeup. Also, unlike other mineral foundations (especially pressed ones), this doesn't cake up too badly around my eyes. My need for a traditional "matte" foundation has faded due to glycolic and retinol treatments, and, of course, age, but if this powder had existed when I truly needed long-lasting, shine-free foundation, I think it would have been a dream-come-true. Compared to all the other brands of mineral powders I've tried, Jane Iredale pressed foundation is the silkiest, has the best coverage, has no glitter, has sunscreen protection, and performs the best around my eyes without making me look like I'm 80. (I have to be realistic, at 44. Powders are going to accentuate lines. It's just the way it is. But I choose the trade-off of the accentuation of a few lines in order to cover my pores, and even out that annoying melasma. As far as coverage, refining skin tone colors, and looking smooth, this is superior to every other pressed mineral foundation I've tried. If you're looking for a "skin-like", or "no-makeup" look, this foundation probably won't work well. It's very comfortable, and it doesn't scream, "MAKE-UP!", but, at least on me, nobody would mistake it for bare skin. This has medium coverage when applied with a brush, but it can easily work as a full coverage foundation if applied with a sponge or powder puff, or wet. The price seems utterly ridiculous, and it's the one thing that kept me from trying Jane Iredale products, for years. Now that I've been using many of her products, I do see why they get away with the high price. They are more highly pigmented, color concentrated, and elegant than many other mineral brands, and their colors seem closer to the colors of real human skin than lots of other makeup. « less" - Beauty.com user

Satin Matte Foundation by Alima Pure

"Gotta say it, I did not think I'd ever like a loose powder foundation. Liquids and creams look too heavy on me, I feel like people look at my makup and not at me because it looks so fake if I wear anything but powder. I've been using pressed powders for years and could never find a good match. The closest I've ever gotten was Clinique's Almost Powder in Fair. It was a decent match, but not spot on. I've started "cleaning out" my makeup bag, slowly replacing products that have questionable ingredients with ones that are more safe and natural and I ran across this brand in a blog somewhere if I remember right. I was apprehensive, I had always considered loose powders to be messy and lacking in the coverage department, but I gave it a shot and boy am I glad that I did. I went with Beige 1 because at the time I thought it was the closest match out of the four in my sample kit, but I'm questioning that right now. It isn't so off that it's highly noticeable, but I'm particular about having a foundation that matches my skin tone so next time I'll try something else. Their sample kits are wonderful and you get enough foundation in each sample to last you a few days, I just jumped the gun. Anyway, this powder is amazing. So light, but so buildable. I can go eight hours or more without needing to touch up the oil slick that forms on my nose/forehead with other foundations. By itself, I'll get a little shine but nothing that I'm concerned about, but paired with the Primer Powder the shine is barely noticeable. I don't find myself checking my makeup every time I pass a mirror now, more like looking on in awe at how good it still looks. This foundation is very easy to touch up at the end of the day if you're going out. It doesn't get the caked on look that I've experienced with other foundations when I try to touch them up. I have rather large pores on and around my nose and I don't feel that this settles into them or any lines unless I apply it too heavily, but if it does happen it will easily buff out. It gives you a natural, believable look and you won't even know that it's there. If the foundation alone can't cover a spot, give the concealer and/or one of the color balancing powders a go, they're marvelous too and great for spot covering so that you're not applying more foundation than necessary. Seriously, five stars aren't enough. * « less" - alimapure.com user

Superstay Better Skin Powder by Maybelline

"Sorry for the long review.... but I have a lot to say about this product. I suffer from terrible adult acne and I've wasted so much time and money trying to get it under control. So when I came across this product one day I decided to try it. Even if it failed at least I would get coverage out of it. As it turns out - it's amazing! The way it glides over your face evenly; the lightweight feel; and the fact that it kept my oily skin in check was enough to keep me happy. After a hard days work it would still be in place with no noticeable streaks. It had remarkable coverage for a powder - and as the days went by I slowly noticed a decrease in concealer use. Unfortunately after I ran out I was unable to make it to the store to purchase more; and that was when I realized how much it kept my acne under control. It wasn't a rebound breakout - It was the same type of acne I had in the same problem areas with the same severity. But now that I wasn't using the powder to treat it, my face slowly began to break out again. So needless to say - I went back and purchased more. I even gifted it to my sister who has the same skin issues I do, and she noticed a change in her complexion immediately. The only negative thing I have to say about this product is that when I made it about half way through the compact, the powder began hardening on the surface from the sponge applicator going over it repeatedly (similar to what happens with eye shadows). So I would use something with a hard edge to gently scrape off the top layer then use that broken powder to apply to my skin. That is probably the applicator itself that causes that. So swapping that out for a poof or brush would likely solve that issue. I myself prefer the sponge applicator and just deal with the problem as it arises." - walgreens user

Peach Perfect Foundation by Too Faced

"This is my new favorite foundation. I have very oily skin with dry patches that sometimes spring up because of my eczema, but it is still very smoothing and does not exaggerate dryness and wears all day. I start to get a bit shiny around the 9/10 hour mark, but this foundation has lasted through a 12 hour day and still looked beautiful and in tact when I took it off. This reminds me so much of the Estee Lauder Double Wear, which is actually not that much of a surprise considering they own Too Faced now. To me, it has all the benefits of double wear without some of the drawbacks, like the heaviness, sometimes cakiness, and no pump double wear has. It is so light on the skin and I do find it to have good and buildable coverage. Strangely, I find the coverage to look fuller once it has set, so I only use a half pump to a full pump for my whole face now. I also love that this comes with 1.6oz of product and for $36! It is also truly transfer resistant, which double wear has never been on me. This also doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, hasn't broken me out, and though I don't like the smell of peaches, I don't mind it at all in this. I am glad I've found this because I've always loved the double wear but was looking for something similar that was lighter, had a pump, etc. and this is it. My only complaint is that the shade range leaves much to be desired. I wear Vanilla but have more golden undertones. I can pull off Vanilla okay, but wish they would come out with more shades for everyone to be able to find their shade as this formula is that good. I am have a light-medium to medium skin tone and the fact that I wear the 3rd shade in the line is a testament to how small the range is. If you are fairer-skinned or deeper-skinned you will most likely not find a shade, and Too Faced needs to fix that. However, if you can find your shade now, and are looking for a great foundation, I would say do not hesitate on this one. The matching primer is also great and pairs well. « less" - Sephora user

Perfectly Real Compact Makeup by Clinique

"I grew up with what most would gingerly refer to as, "problematic skin". Honey, my face's terrain was a red, rocky landscape that put the Rockies to shame. Mince garlic, not words, people.Years of dermatologic visits, beginning at the tender age of 8. Every single prescription pill, cream, gel, wash, and toner available on the market was thrown at me, short of Accutane. Understandably, my folks weren't too keen on the drug after seeing my oldest brother's miserable (and unsuccessful) experience.Needless to say, my pre-teen, teenage, and early 20's years contained The Quest for the Holy Compact. Name a brand and a product. I've tried it. Drugstore brands. As seen on TV. Magazine rave reviews. Dermatologist recommended. And of course, I tried everything that was recommended for my skin by various consultants from various companies (even Clinique, back around age 13). But my finicky skin rejected them all. Too dry. Too cakey. Turns my face into a mirror within an hour. Changes color after a couple hours. Makes my breakouts worse. Can't build up coverage. Not enough coverage. You get the picture.But then, at 18, I find this product. Cue angelic chorus bursting forth from parted clouds. It matched my skin perfectly (shade 114), banishing my uneven, blotchy redness with ease. Didn't change color through the day. Stayed put. A little more coverage here, a little less coverage there. Prevented shine without drying my skin out. It was ridiculously perfect. I cannot stress that enough. This Holy Compact--so innocent in its pleasant spring-mint packaging--contained the stunning conclusion to my quest.10 years later, here I am at 28, still faithfully carrying this precious product in my purse each day. Even if you discontinue this product, just know that it made a huge impact on the tumultuous and socially-ostracized adolescent life of one girl. Thank you. Less" - clinique.com.my user

Natural Loose Mineral Foundation by youngblood

"As a person who on and off struggled with acne since age 13, that has left my skin with scars, redness, and still blemish prone. The Youngblood Natural Mineral Loose Foundation hides all this, covers the dark circles under my eyes and smoothes my skin beyond recognition. Doesn't clog pores and feels natural. As my skin tends to be very oily I use a primer as base and a compact powder on top to keep the look lasting longer. This tames my skin and gives a flawless complection, without looking or feeling heavy. I still look like me, but a better me, and I feel great! Definetely would recommend for anyone, no matter the skin issue! " - lookfantastic.com user

Diamond Powder Foundation by Winky Lux

Inner Light Mineral Dual Foundation by Aveda

"I would like to start by saying that since I have been using the tourmaline line makeup is truly not a necessity. I have been using the dual foundation for years, though, and I still love it so much I actually look forward to applying it every morning. Over time, I have developed a regimen that works like a miracle. I begin by washing my face with the tourmaline exfoliating cleanser and follow with the tourmaline radiance fluid, a touch of the tourmaline hydrating creme, and a lightweight sunscreen. This preparation perfectly hydrates, protects, and primes my skin. I first use a concealer brush to dab the dual foundation around my eyes and to cover any dark spots. I noticed some reviews on here that dissuade using a sponge for application, but I think the key is the type of sponge. I use an egg shaped sponge that hugs the contours of my face. I rinse it in warm water and thoroughly wring it out so it is just slightly damp. I pat the dual foundation gently onto my skin, building coverage as desired. I personally want something that evens skin tone without masking the natural glow the tourmaline products bring out in my skin. The dual foundation does just that. The result is radiant and flawless skin.I first tried this method one night before I went on a date. Over the course of dinner, my date kept mentioning how my face looked smoother than usual. It was funny to see him try to delicately tell me my skin always looked nice, but it looked especially lovely that night. I decided not to let him in on my little secret. « less" - aveda user

Vitalumiere Aqua by Chanel

"I couldnt remember where I got my sample of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua broad spectrum spf 15. I looked into every subscription beauty box I receive, including Macys Beauty Box. I ended up at Macys finding this wonderful, life saving foundation or teint as its referred as on the sample. I read the 2nd review listed in this thread and everything she said, I totally agree. You only need a pea size to cover your entire face. After I applied this teint, I had to take a DOUBLE TAKE in the mirror. I'm 57, soon 58. Enlarged pores are my nightmare. Not only does this teint loom like my own skin, it totally blurred my pores. In 6 hours and counting, it has not oxidized, has not settled into fine lines and has not become oily. This base actually looks just like skin. I take great care of my skin and spend the bulk of my splurges on high end skin care. Most days, I dont even wear foundation or a base. I tend to stay with BB Creams or skin tints. Just to even things out. Usually after using powder and setting spray, I good. But, I really havent been satisfied with ANY Brands foundations or skin tints lately until I used my sample of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. My skin is dry so its imperative I use a base that continues to look dewy but not greasy as my day moves forward. This teint looks just as fresh at 8:00pm as it did at 2:00pm. My complexion is a medium/lightbw/neutral undertones. I can go warm or cool. My sample is spot on as far as matching my skin tone. The sample is 30 BEIGE. I'm here to order the full size. Ladies , if you have dry skin and always find your base setting into fine lines and pores, this teint ix for you! 110%!! Sure, its a bit more expensive than some, and even more so than probably what youre use to spending but, if youre like me and reviewer NO. 2, BUY THIS! You will not regret it. The shade range is broad enough, you should be able to match up. « less" - Macy's user

Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation by Elizabeth Arden

"This is a natural looking, sheer foundation. It's never cakey, dry, or irritating, and doesn't settle into pores. Good for older, sensitive complexions, it's moisturizing yet controls oil and shine. I'm fair and use the #2 shade, which disappears into my complexion perfectly when applied over a light BB cream. It has a built in twist and shave-type dispensor, and comes with a powder puff, though I prefer a brush for application. Reasonably priced, it lasts through about three months of daily use. Love it!" - Macy's user

Future Skin Foundation by chantecaille

"Ever since I was recommended this product by one of the lovely ladies at MECCA, I have been utterly in love with this phenomenal and life changing foundation. After using this product for a month, I have received SO many compliments (and still continue to do so!) which instantly bumped up my self-confidence and helped me to produce an inner glow and an outer one due to the sheer, natural dewiness this innovative product provides.Why should this be your 'holy grail' foundation? Well, once you've gently dipped your fingers into its gorgeous gel-creme texture, the foundation will instantly melt into your skin like a dream! This foundation cleverly adapts to your skin giving you the natural, healthy glow your skin deserves, without leaving you feeling oily, caked, or sticky. It gives a light to medium coverage that you can wear happily throughout the day and build-up if needed to for the evening.I was delighted to see that the ingredients contain water; meaning my foundation would be less likely to slip and slide off my face and onto my clothes, and it also helps stimulate hydration which is great for combatting the wintertime flakiness. Also, the Rosemary leaf extract is a powerful anti-oxidant, fighting off all the early stages of ageing and fellow nasties that we want to keep away from our skin!To sum it all up, this foundation is SUCH a revolutionary product, well worth the hype and price! A MUST for the Mecca beauty junkie, or anyone wanting to truly experience the future of makeup as it also is HD compatible. I recommend wearing this over Hourglass's Mineral Veil to boost the longevity of this luxurious foundation! Less" - mecca.com.au user

Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation by Shiseido

"I used MUFE's HD foundation for years! I didn't realize when I ordered a new bottle that the formula had been changed. It's still a good product, but wasn't giving me nearly the same amount of coverage as the old one had. I didn't know what to do! I bought 5 different top brand foundations after reading countless reviews on here and several articles! I saw people raving about this new foundation, so it was one of the ones I got. I fell in love! But, I waited for over 3 months before writing this review to make sure it was a lasting love! I'm currently on medication that is extremely drying to my skin, but I still had a little oil on my nose. I was having a hard time finding something that didn't show up the flakiness and oil! Then I tried this one! The first application had me sold! I didn't need the 5+ pumps from other brands to create a good coverage that looked natural! I'm actually impressed that it does blend with your actual skin tone as well! Now, on days when the winter air made my skin even more dry and nothing on earth would have covered that up, I found a small drop of my favorite facial oil made it perfectly smooth and it was still providing a flawlessly natural finish. For those who have said it was too matte, or perhaps showed dry patches... I beg you to try it again with a small drop of facial oil! You'll be in love too! It lasts all day without using a setting powder - for now I know that may be due to the medication drying my skin. But, I also had no problem with transfer...it didn't rub onto my husband's shirts when I hugged him! At 41, I actually don't have many wrinkles, but my laugh lines will show up a bit when I smile in picture. I must thank my mom for the lack of many fine lines and wrinkles though - she had me using an entire skin care regime at 13! An oil-control lotion rather than a moisturizer for my teen years, but it all taught me that taking care of your skin is very important! Oh, if we'd only known back in the 80's to use sunscreen...then I wouldn't be dealing with the small sunspots that have come up! However, this foundation has great coverage AND doesn't settle into any fine lines. I can't wear a primer that "instantly smoothes lines", as I break out with certain silicones. So, seeing this as something that didn't depend on a primer to keep it from showcasing any lines, HUGE PLUS!!! I can't believe that I'm saying this, but Shiseido, you may have outdone MUFE's original HD formula!! Looks great in photos, even with flash photography, but looks natural while covering all the flaws!!! I would HIGHLY recommend trying this out. You might be surprised and find you like it better than your "old faithful"!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-2030157338847980809-full" data-show="-2030157338847980809-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Healthy Mix Serum Foundation by Bourjois

"In the past I have used a range of different foundations from different brands, but never one from Boujois.I have most recently been using a BB cream because I like that it has a lighter coverage and that I can still see my freckles through it (more suitable for summer than my previous foundation from Revlon). However, I decided to try to go back to foundations as the BB cream I bought was making my skin very oily. Strange considering I have dry skin.I have dry skin and occasionally get flaky patches which usually my foundation would cake to, and it would be very obvious at the end of the day when most of the foundation had worn off except for these patches. Not a good look!I saw this foundation reviewed by Pixiewoo on their blog and another person on Youtube and so thought I would give it a try.I bought a real techniques stippling brush to apply it and I was amazed! It doesn't give a totally matte finish, has a sort of dewy look which is lovely and best of all, provides excellent coverage but still looks like it is my skin. I think I read someone said before that the effect is "my skin but better". I can barely feel any make up on my face and if i do touch my face it feels smooth and soft.I have very fair skin but I do tan/freckle slightly on my face and so I bought the second to lightest colour, Vanilla.I am so impressed with this product I am tempted to buy three more on the current offer.As many people have said, including the Pixiewoo ladies, this foundation feels like an extremely well known high end brand, but is a third of the cost! Excellent value for the quality of the product. Less" - boots.com user

Fresh Air Makeup Base by Estée Lauder

"I think spf in cosmetics causes me to break out and gives me milia so I try to avoid it whenever possible. I decided to try this foundation because it was one of the few I could find without spf. It still has the titanium dioxide which helps to shield the skin but does not have that heavy spf to it which I believe clogs my pores. The color of this foundation is beautiful. The linen beige is actually natural and not orange at all.Estee Lauder knows how to make natural skin tone shades. My skin feels so nice and smooth when Im wearing it also.Its very natural.Its not cakey or flaky which many cheap brands of foundation are. I think it seems to cover my pores better than some of the popular high end full coverage foundations I've tried. If I use alittle foundation primer first in the t zone area before applying this the pores disappear completely. I use a foundation brush to apply mine which really helps to blend it. Oh and it also washes off easily at the end of the day! Very important if you do not want to breakout.Overall Im very happy with my purchase and will be repurchasing most likely and discontinuing use of the other foundations I own. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="5183191712971304400-full" data-show="5183191712971304400-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Estée Lauder user

Your Skin But Better Foundation + Skincare by IT Cosmetics

"I'm so happy the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Foundation + Skincare was sent to me complimentary to try out and share my opinion. I don't think I would have thought of purchasing this as I'm not too familiar with IT Cosmetics, but Let me tell you! This foundation blew my mind. It's medium coverage, I'm usually a full coverage girl but I don't mind this. I pop on a bit of concealer where I have my blemishes and this foundation is a dream. It applies so well. The forumula is great and blends easily with a brush or beauty blender (I've tried both). It is so lightweight, you easily forget you're even wearing foundation! There's no cakey look even when I build it up a bit. As for the 'better-looking skin' claim, that's one I'd really like to believe and in time I'll be able to determine that for myself. And for sure I will because I'm going to be using this foundation to the last drop and then getting myself a bottle once it's finished. I have oily skin and this worked well. I usually have issues with separation around my nose and upper lip area even with the use of various primers and setting powder but I haven't seen any such problems with this foundation so far. The shade I was sent is Tan Neutral 42 (my complexion is medium complexion but more on the lighter side) and this was a very close match. Perhaps there might be a shade in their line that may match me exactly but this didn't do a bad job when I paired it with my concealer. Overall, really great foundation that I can't seem to find a fault with. Only thing I'm wondering now is if IT Cosmetics has a 'full coverage' foundation. I'd be very interested in that just by how impressed I am with this one! I do like the medium coverage though, it's nice and light for when you want to look put together without too overdone. I certainly recommend this foundation!" - sephora user

Mineral Foundation - SPF 15 by Lily Lolo

"This is hands down the best foundation I have ever had, so much so that I threw away my collection of foundations the moment I tried it. It's great for everyday wear because it looks so natural even from up close. It does not crease around my mouth like majority of liquid foundations used to after few hours. I have a normal/combination skin type and it seems to work nicely on both my oily nose and chin as well as on my dry cheeks. I love that it has absolutely no scent which for some reason bothered me the most about other foundations. The coverage is buildable but it probably won't cover blemishes entirely without concealer. It can take a little more time to apply than liquid foundation as you have to buff well and use small amount at a time but it is definitely worth the extra 5 minutes. Less" - lookfantastic.com user

Age Perfect Radiant Serum Foundation SPF 50 by L'Oreal

"I received the L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Serum Foundation to try for free from Top Box Circle. I have to admit when I first saw that I was given the Ivory 10 that I thought that it would be too light for my skin. I also thought the small tube wouldn’t last very long. But boy was I wrong with both of my assumptions!I applied the product sometimes with my fingers and sometimes with a brush. Either way worked extremely well for me and blended into my skin for a natural look. I had even skin tones and the foundation didn’t cake and actually softened my fine lines. And it doesn’t take much of the product to achieve your natural look!I have extremely sensitive skin and this foundation was amazing. I didn’t develop any reaction to the foundation and the scent was not noticeable at all. I applied the foundation in the morning and tried applying it sometimes after I put on a morning cream and sometimes directly on the face with no moisturizer. I wanted to see if there were any issues with dryness. There was no noticeable difference and I loved how my skin remained hydrated throughout the whole day even if I didn’t apply a face cream beforehand.The colour ivory blended well with my skin tone and blended extremely well for an all day look. I liked how my skin looked more alive and had a nicer tone and glow than normal. It was very lightweight and I like how you can’t “feel” that you have foundation on at all.I would love it if the foundation had some sunscreen built right into it. Outside of this one wish this is definitely something that will be added to my makeup routine. I highly recommend this product.#freeproduct #trywithtopbox #lovemesomesamples #honestopiniongal #ilovefreesamples #canadianfreebies#lorealparis #topboxcirclecanada #ifoundmynewfoundation Less" - lorealparis.ca user

Radiant Loose Powder Foundation by Nude by Nature

"I have always only used liquid foundations so when I received this product for free, I was so excited to try out this powder foundation for the first time. I received the colour, "N2 Classic Beige" which this foundation is encased in a round container with this cloth mesh covering so the contents don’t spill out all at once. There is 10g worth of product in this container and that’s a lot considering all you really need a light dusting of this powder and you’ve achieved a natural flawless glow. This foundation is buildable to a medium coverage and has no scent. It covered my redness rather well. The colour matched my skin really well. While being feathery light blending into my skin amazingly well giving the illusion like you’re not wearing any foundation at all. And it really does feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.You need to use the flawless brush(dense brush) to achieve optimal results. To achieve the results you want, you need to dip brush into the mineral powder, turn brush over and tap handle gently against container so that the powder falls into the brush. This helps achieve even coverage as you buff circular motions into your skin working from inward out.This foundation can be drying to the skin so you need to moisturize well beforehand. If you are also using concealer and any sort of liquid products, get those out of the way first before you powder foundation, otherwise it can look a bit cakey and start to separate.I think this foundation would be perfect for the summer when it's hot/and or humid because the last thing you want to do is wear something too heavy. This foundation is perfectly light and breathable for these types of conditions but is great year round. I did notice throughout the day that my concealer underneath my eyes started to crease a bit and that my nose became shiny even though this product states that it has oil-controlling properties. It also started to rub off a bit on my nose, but nothing a little touch up can’t fix and it’ll look great again. I also noticed that the foundation held up very well for me after work when I went to the gym. Sweatproof and allows your skin to breathe. Nice!Ultimately, I love the finish so much! Giving my skin this light, wonderful glow. An almost airbrushed look without looking powdery. Now that’s my kinda foundation! Thank you Nude by Nature!#freeproduct Less" - beautyboutique.ca user

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 by Chanel

"I have tried a hundred foundations (MUFE, Charlotte tilbury, Giorgio Armani, Dior, elcie, Kevyn auction, MAC, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, benefit, too faced, tarte, la prairie, YSL, Tom Ford, the list goes on..) and I’m forever on the hunt for my forever foundation and this is the one! First. I frequently have a problem with color matching. I’m half white and half Japanese so it can be a little hard to match my sometimes sensitive skin. I got B20 and it is a PERFECT MATCH. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so confident wearing a foundation. It’s warm in undertone without making your skin look sallow and goes on like a dream. I use the Chanel sublimage la lotion supreme on cleansed skin and then follow with the Chanel solution 10 moisturizer that I was told can double as a primer. I let that sit for a bit and then apply the foundation and set it with the Le tient ultra tenue powder in the same shade. This foundation applies like a dream. I use a beauty blender because I’m lazy but do like to apply with a flat top brush, too. It’s buildable and goes on so smoothly. It doesn’t just sit on top of your skin either. It feels natural and lasts ALL day. I do tend to lean more full coverage and this definitely does that without looking cakey. I have never been excited to apply foundation but this one has changed my mind. I wasn’t going to go back to Chanel after hating the last foundation I was told to try (also an incorrect color match by the Chanel rep) but thought I’d give it one last try and I’m so happy with my purchase! My skin is normal but can get a little dry/oily depending on the season. It doesn’t accentuate my dry patches and the oily spots if I have any don’t cause the foundation to run or oxidize. This is the best foundation and it’s so underrated! Less" - Nordstrom user

Double Wear Light Stay-In-Place Makeup by Estée Lauder

"This foundation comes in a lightweight squeezy container, which is amazing for portability plus I find it less messy and wasteful than standard foundations. The foundation itself is creamy and not runny at all, but it spreads very evenly onto the face. It applies fabulously with a brush but I prefer to use fingers, as I feel this warms up the foundation a bit to help it blend. I blend out from the middle and it gives a glowy look at first but dries down to a natural, semi-matte finish. The coverage is amazing, it covers blemishes and redness so well - I'd say it covers just as well as the normal Double Wear, but with a different (less matte) finish. Because it's less matte, I find it more flattering on the slightly uneven texture of my skin. It gives an illusion of lovely smooth skin, but doesn't look like you're wearing heavy foundation. This is the best foundation I've found for combination skin, as it doesn't dry out or cause flakiness on the drier parts of my face, but it also controls oil really well on the shinier parts. I work full time and also attend evening classes, so I can personally testify that this lasts over 16 hours (!) on me without a primer or setting powder. I'm really particular about my base makeup looking good as I think it makes a huge difference, and this foundation even seemed to make my blusher last longer. I wore this foundation to my wedding about 18 months ago, and it lasted even in heat exceeding 40 degrees! It also photographed beautifully - even in the un-retouched photos from family and friends, my face looked airbrushed! My skin really isn't that great naturally, so this is a LIFESAVER. I'm a total foundation addict and have tried most of the high end brands, but this wins every time. Thanks Estee Lauder, this is absolutely my favourite product! Please bring out more shades though, like you have done for Double Wear - as a pale warm-toned girl, shade 1.0 is a little too dark and pinky for me in the winter. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="3928115401085027846-full" data-show="3928115401085027846-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Estée Lauder user

Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Foundation by Burberry Beauty

"I'm 73 years old, and find the challenges of age-appropriate makeup and makeup techniques challenging, to say the least, so it is with great pleasure I've found the perfect concealer to enhance my under-eye area without having to deal with caking and creasing and drying in this delicate area. I have a light to medium skin tone, and Burberry Cashmere Concealer in Honey has become an integral part of my daily regimen. Application is a pleasure: the cashmere-like tip is a lovely idea, and easy to control. (Upon receiving the product I gave it a few good pumps to start the flow, and now use only one pump to disperse the small amount of product sufficient for both eyes.) FYI, my complete regimen: After moisturizing my face and neck, I begin with an under-eye conditioner (Chanel), letting it dry and soak in for a few minutes, and then use the Cashmere tip to dab a small amount of concealer around and under the whole eye area including the corners of inner and outer eye, patting it in lightly. I follow that with a thin layer of my foundation, Armani Maestro Fusion makeup #5.25, lightly brushing it over my entire face including (carefully) over the concealer and not forgetting to extend a thin film onto my throat and ears and behind and below the ear (so easy to forget this and so obviously off-shade if one forgets to enhance that area too). Then I apply my eye makeup, jazz up my thinning eyebrows and lashes, follow that with a very thin application of powder blush---Dior Mimi Bronze---and pat a very light film of Chanel Light Creator Brightening makeup base (in the pale yellow shade, Mimosa) to the outer corner of my eyes and continue down over just the top of my cheekbones. Adds a lovely subtle sheen, making the whole face look perfectly moisturized and healthy. Then outline the lips lightly and just as lightly apply lipstick (current favs are Armani Ecstacy Tangerine and Burberry Nude Apricot.) Sounds complicated, but easy and such a natural look for mature skin... Less" - Nordstrom user

Line Smoothing Liquid Makeup by Almay

"I just love this stuff. Bought on vacation as I needed something. It is very natural looking, does not feel like a foundation, more like a tinted moisturizer but dries with a silky velvet texture. I do not need powder over this to set it; it sets and dries on its own (hate powder) and lasts all day long. I usually use a TM and am finding those to be too thick these days and goopy. This provides just enough coverage to make me feel "done". For those with dry skin that want a light to medium coverage - doubt it will work with oily skin. Only bad thing I can say (and I have tried so many foundations - hated them all), is that the bottle cap is horrible. Wish it came in a tube or pump to keep it sanitary and not spill. This is the "old style" glass packaging for a foundation, and its a "new style" skin finish style foundation so Almay needs to get with the program. Also has a light smell and wish it had no smell but it is not too overpowering. If this continues to work, I will be thrilled as I am now spending $55 on the same amount of foundation (high end stuff) and this is nicer, better overall color, finish, texture, etc. « less" - drugstore.com user

Cover Perfection Concealer Foundation by The SAEM

"Initially I hesitated to buy this foundation because in Korea, many customers gave review that it is not as good as The Seam Concealer but anyhow, I gave it a try and I was totally amazed with this foundation. The Saem has never let me down. I think it works exactly like what it has claimed. It is a foundation & a concealer at the same time. I bought the rich beige tone and to my surprise, it didn't disappoint me like what others have said. It actually gives full coverage, conceals any blemishes and covers the skin excellently. The tone actually suites me so well. It doesn't get patchy but it settles between my fine lines after 5 hours. It doesn't break down easily and i think it is very god even for people who have oily skin like me. It has a matte finish but becomes glowy after a couple of hours if you have excessive sebum production.I highly recommend this foundation! Less" - yesstyle.com user

The pump is great as it is really precise and you can control exactly how much you want dispensed, so no fear of wasting any!The bottle looks very chic and glamorous as well with the gold lid, so no embarrassment when you pull it out of your makeup bag in public!The foundation itself has quite a thin consistency, yet it will still manage to cover imperfections and evens out skin tone to a uniform colour, giving a medium finish. It feels very lightweight on the skin and you don't get the heavy, mask feeling that a lot of foundations give. It has a fresh watermelon scent, which is quite pleasant, but only lasts while you're applying the foundation, it fades within seconds, so no lingering smells if you don't like watermelons!The finish is a cross between dewy and matte, it's a very difficult appearance to describe, but I have combination skin, and it manages to moisturise the dry areas, as well as stopping any oily areas looking shiny. It is oil free, and has pretty good lasting power- after a day's wear it still looks fresh, and when I remove my makeup in the evening after applying it in the morning, there is most definitely foundation coming off on my cotton pad, so I know it has lasted throughout the day and hasn't faded away.Clarins say it replicates real skin and this is a high claim, but I think it does a fair job. As long as you blend well, the foundation sinks into your skin without any obvious traces that you're wearing it.All in all, a really fantastic foundation, provides natural, medium coverage, and not only that, but several people have commented on how lovely my skin looks.

Toleriane Teint Fluid by La Roche-Posay

"Um ehrlich zu sein, habe ich mich bei der letzten Bestellung versehen, denn eigtl. wollte ich das Toleriane Mineral Puder kaufen. Nun habe ich erstmalig die Kompakt-Creme bekommen und bin wirklich positiv überrascht. Normalerweise mag ich keine Kompakt-Cremes oder flüssigen Make-ups da ich immer das Gefühl habe, dass es wie eine dicke Schicht im Gesicht klebt. So aber nicht mit dieser Kompakt-Creme! Sie ist nach dem Auftragen wirklich nur ganz leicht zu spüren, ähnlich wie eine ganz normale Tagespflege. Ich persönlich verwende immer einen Make-up-Pinsel, weil die Kompakt-Creme so noch leichter auf der Haut liegt und es nach dem Auftragen wirklich ebenmäßig verteilt ist. Kleine Rötungen werden perfekt kaschiert, ohne das die Poren verstopfen. Ein sehr tolles Produkt, ich würde mich beim nächsten Kauf bewusst für diese Kompakt-Creme entscheiden! :) Less" - medpex.at user

Hydra Touch Powder Foundation by NYX Professional Makeup

"This powder is so good for my dry skin. Almost so soft that it doesn't feel like most powders! My only complaint is, I bought the lightest shade, and it looks like my shade in the pan, but on my face its still just a bit too deep for my liking. Please make an even paler shade, for us pale skin girls! We need setting powder too :) (same goes for deep skin girls-- we need even more shade options). Despite being a bit too deep, I'm in love with this power's formula. Its the ONLY powder I've tried, that doesn't make my super dry skin look like a cracked, cakey desert. If you have dry skin, please try this out! You'll be glad you did :) If you're super pale like me though, choose the shade lighter than you think you need, because it looks darker once applied over foundation. This powder is great for setting foundation and concealer, because if you go in with a light application, it doesn't take away all of your skin's dewiness, but it somehow still sets it completely so it won't budge. Helps my concealer not crease, too. Please keep making this powder, NYX, but consider making another pale shade (basically true white would be good) and more deep shades :) This is one of my favorite NYX products, along with their Gotcha Covered Concealer, Butter Gloss, Taupe blush (used as a contour powder), Epic Ink Liquid Eyeliner, and Dewy setting spray. Less" - nyxcosmetics.com user

Glo Skin Beauty Pressed Base by glo minerals

"I was introduced to mineral make up by Bare Minerals in 2005. I have tried and experimented with several other mineral make ups since then and I have to say that Glo Minerals is far superior to all I have tried (and I have tried a lot). The color selection is wonderful, the brushes are amazing and even the primer is better than the others I have tried. The first day I wore it to work, my co-workers asked if I had had a facial because my skin glowed. It covers well, doesn't settle into lines and wrinkles and looks natural. I was so impressed with the pressed base, I bought the primer, highlighter, brushes, lip plumper and eyeshadow. You can say I am hooked on this line. " - canada.gloprofessional.com user

Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Custom Finish Powder Foundation by Shiseido

"Shiseido's Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Custom Finish Powder Foundation seems to work well with my sensitive skin with zero negative reactions. The coverage is sheer to medium and can be buildable. The packaging is sleek and professional as a thin black compact with red accents.This foundation has ActiveForce Technology which is supposed to prevent the foundation from being affected by sweat, oil, and normal facial movements that can crease normal foundation. It includes wild thyme extract which provides antioxidant properties, and the Responsive Sensory Technology allows the foundation to blend and adapt to your skin type, tone, and texture to provide a more flawless finish.I received the shade 220 Linen which is supposed to be the balanced tone for light skin. My usual foundation shade is light to light-to-medium. This shade blends well with my natural skin tone and provides a natural illumination and finish.After experimenting with the different methods of application, I've found that I prefer using the white side of the sponge to apply the foundation powder on dry. The outcome is a matte finish with minimal flakiness and caking. This is after cleansing my face and applying a facial moisturizer to hydrate out those dry spots on my face. I've found that I didn't even need to apply a primer beforehand! The black side of the sponge is used to apply the foundation on wet/damp. I felt that this method of application was only okay because that it didn't seem to have as smooth a finish as applying it on dry. Just the sponge they provide for you is effective for application and I didn't need my own brush.Overall, I found that this foundation to be high quality. The foundation was still holding at around 7-8 hours and I didn't have any issues with smudging or shine. I also didn't have dehydrated spots of skin that'd occur with foundations I've used in the past. I highly recommend this product to those with sensitive combination skin who desire a quick application. Less" - Sephora user

Matchmaster Foundation by MAC

"Out of all the foundations from MAC that I've used; Studio Tech, Studio Sculpt, Studio Fix Fluid (all in NW 50-55), Matchmaster foundation is the ABSOLUTE best one that I've tried. I always prefer full coverage, and this is an 8-9 on a scale of 1-10 only to SFF (which I give a 10 in coverage), but has an amazing finish when applied correctly (i.e., 187 duo fibre brush).My primary objectives when buying foundation are: 1) matching it with my skin tone, 2)finding full/buildable coverage, and 3) avoiding looking like a grease ball; let's be clear: nobody wants to look like they've smeared their face with lip gloss. So, I fell out of love with SFF after noticing how much I had to touch-up my face during the day (I'm oily to the 10th power); and it has always had this strange smell that I could never get over. Studio Sculpt looked gorgeous and gave me that dewy look, but after about 5-6 hours it looked cakey and started to slip; no matter how much primer I'd use beforehand. Studio Tech always ended up making me looking chalky, and I'd go through $30 compacts entirely too fast.So, the last time I needed foundation, I bought another SFF, but after a convincing recommendation, I got a sample of the Matchmaster in 9.0 to try. I was a little skeptical; I'm an NW50 with reddish undertones, and although MAC has an array of colors, it's easy for the wrong shade to make me look orange. Needless to say, I used it the next day during my full face routine and was AMAZED. The shade matched my skin PER-FECT-LY. Do you hear me? Flawless. So, after work that day, I ended up taking the SFF I'd purchased back and exchanging it for a Matchmaster. That was April, and I'm still going strong.After priming my face, I use just a little Fix+ all over ( the foundation is somewhat quick to dry), and I use it with my holy grail 187 brush. It's completely buildable, (a little goes a long way) and doesn't make me look chalky. And the wearability is phenomenal; still looks great after a 14-hour day. Although I still get oily on my nose, it's nothing like it would be with other foundations. I get so many compliments on my makeup, and I doubt that I'll ever be going back to another foundation. If MAC ever discontinues this one I really, honestly don't have a clue what I would switch back to because there's nothing like it. For anyone who is considering switching foundations or is curious about this, try it. I doubt you'll be disappointed. « less" - M·A·C user

Compact Makeup Powder Foundation by chantecaille

"Normally I don't write reviews, just read them and take them for what they are. Not one product will work across the board for everyone based on reviews. That said - this product is amazing. I have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on products only to toss away or come to find out I fell for the marketing hype yet again. Thankfully I have the job that allows for that but let's be real - no one can blow through money like that in search of a decent foundation for very long.I have skin that produces more oil than most oil rigs in my T zone and normal in the rest. Blotting papers are my constant companions. I also have pores the size of manhole covers on my nose and cheeks. Covering those takes spackle and patience - neither of which I have nor desire to use. My skin is flat, redness, just blah. Like beige paint - just blah. I needed something that would cover the redness, even out my skin tone, if lucky, maybe save me a blotting session every 30 minutes, and not make me look like I had troweled on foundation. I am blemish free and not trying to conceal anything so I'm lucky in that respect. I don't like liquid foundations or the gloopy feeling from same.That being said - I purchased this. I thought the price was a bit high but figured what the heck - I could always return it. I've learned to start doing that - my bank account thanks me. I used to use another brand of compact foundation which I loved for color match - but they no longer make. I'm a medium beige - cool to neutral undertones. Most compact foundations make me look jaundiced or washed out / pale / gothic #not the look I'm going for#. This one is amazing.I started out with Dune - but it had a chalky cast to it. I went to return it and the clerk suggested camel. In the compact it looked like it had a hint of a yellow hue - I thought ok fine - I'll try it for a day - see ya tomorrow for a return. Wow - I was so wrong. This is a perfect match. It's not a tan in a compact - but looks like I had a bit of a healthy tan / glowI've had several compliments today on how rested and healthy I look. That I have a glow to me, your face looks so amazing, etc. Never heard any of that in the past 46 years. Mind you - I empty a bottle of wine at night - so I'm not exactly the vision of healthy lifestyles. Also just returned from a business trip so dealing with jetlag and dehydration from flying. All things that you would expect would make you look busted which I normally do but with this on my face - like none of it ever happened.This stuff is just amazing. I does control oil - I do have to blot - but not nearly as much - I'd say maybe 3 times a day as opposed to every hour. Your skin has a glow - not glitter, not some fake shine - but just a healthy, stress free, well rested glow. However they pull that off is amazing.I moisturize, put on a primer and then brush this over my face with a powder brush. I use the sponge to press in the product in a few areas. I find that either dragging the sponge or buffing the product in does not work for me. Simply sweeping over and pressing in here and there gives me a close to flawless finish #even helps minimize my manhole sized pores - which is a miracle in of itself# I do a touch up around the nose area mid afternoon and that's it - the stuff lasts all day.I strongly suggest you try this. Yes it's expensive, yes the color shades are not as many as other lines, but something in this stuff actually works and does make you look natural, makeup free, without redness, perfect skin, well rested, etc. I can't say enough good things about this. The truly funny part - I was researching for yet another powder compact foundation, and this stuck out to me since the package resembled the compact I had used. I had never heard of this brand before, they have a small counter, nothing really mainstream like brands.Hands down - this one is a keeper. « less" - Nordstrom user

Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup by Revlon

"I took some time to pour through Ulta foundations and their reviews, looking for something under $20 with reviews to rival luxury brands. In the end, this seemed like the clear answer.I've used Covergirl Foundation in Creamy Natural for as long as I've worn makeup. Recently, I've started to feel like I need something that'll last longer - Covergirl always seems to melt away, unless I put effort into priming (I rarely do). It's also rather shiny on oily skin, especially if I start with a moisturizer (I always do). Again, this seemed like the answer!When I made it into the store, I was faced with choosing a shade. While online, I did not fully appreciate the fact that THERE ARE ONLY 8 COLORS. This is a specialty subset of Revlon foundation, and it doesn't have a fully developed range of shades. There isn't a shade for everyone, and colors do not correlate with the Covergirl shades that I know.If you do find your shade, this is wonderful. It's medium coverage, and it doesn't disappear during the day, or let your face turn oily. It also doesn't look cakey or thick. I dab it on with my fingers, then use a beauty blender. It has a great finish, and you can layer it over moisturizer without it melting off. It lasts all day. With some effort, it washes off - but it doesn't just rinse away (yay!). I would recommend it.The rest of this review pertains to colors:There's a lack of help with choosing makeup on the "cheap" side of the store. Poor lighting, a lack of mirrors, no samples (of this), and no associates meant I was stumped. I didn't let this affect my star rating for the product, but it was so difficult - come on, Ulta!Again, THERE ARE ONLY 8 COLORS. That's not a lot.I am a natural medium blonde with pale coloring, but I'm not one of those girls who always needs the lightest foundation. I am medium light, not lightest light. I also have more pink coloring than yellow - something I've never put so much thought into. "Ivory" is pink, but it's an extremely light shade. It's something I might use for highlighting, but not something I could use for my main foundation.Buff and Sand Beige look very yellow hued, however. As I said, I'm pink, and it seemed obvious that these wouldn't match. Next come Nude and Natural Beige, which look extremely similar. Now, these are solidly in the middle of the light-to-dark 8-color range. I'm still pale, if not the palest, and middle-range is a bit dark for me. Everything else is for darker tones.Now, even apart from the poor testing environment, it's difficult to examine these colors in-store. The glass jar is very thick and shallow, so you don't get a good view of what's inside. There's a color sticker on top, but that feels risky. I finally went with Nude, because it's placement suggested it was lighter than Natural Beige, and I was at a loss.After bringing it home, I quickly found that Nude did not match. It's yellow, and it looks absolutely dark and gray on my face. I tried using less, and it didn't help. It had to go back.Now, Nude looked dark and gray (yellow), but the two lighter colors (Buff and Sand Beige) looked much yellower to me. Nude was already too yellow, so I couldn't choose those. Ivory is pink, but also nearly white - I couldn't choose that either. Although Nude was already dark, I had to go in the opposite direction, and try Natural Beige.These two colors look pretty identical side by side, which was why I was willing to try "darker." When I applied Natural Beige, the results were much better. Although I'd call it an overall neutral undertone, this color was more pink than Nude, so it didn't look so gray on my skin. It's still a little dark, but when you blend it in, it actually looks very nice. I don't think it's my perfect match, but I can use this color and be happy.I wish revlon would offer more shades of this amazing foundation - especially more pink toned shades! If you're experimenting, good luck, and thank god for return policies. Less" - ulta.com user

Photogenic Lumessence SPF 15 Foundation  by Lancôme

"Now that I'm 47 1/2....I've been seeing more signs of aging lately.... and more and more products are just settling into my pores and wrinkles and emphasizing them. Ugh. Until the past few months, people used to think I was 10 years younger than I was, but recent stress has sped up the aging process for me, so it appears. Anyway, I was about to give up on having great-looking skin ever again until I found this foundation. But WOW, this foundation has virtually turned back the clock and makes my face look 10 years younger (once again, yay!). With this foundation, my face looks MUCH more luminous and healthy, and it does NOT settle into pores or wrinkles. This foundation so far is actually improving my large forehead wrinkle quite a bit.

Lingerie De Peau Powder Foundation by Guerlain

"To sum up my experience with this foundation; It's good. I recommend it. If you want to know more, however, read on. I am not a fan of powder foundation. It tends to cake in my fine lines, and during the day it will get patchy and eventually leave me with a bare and shiny t-zone. And that is in spite of my skin being dry. To compensate for that however, the rest of my face tend to look like I've dusted a generous amount of flour all over the rest of it, so I'll be the first to admit I was skeptical when upon the launch of Lingerie de Peau powder foundation. As this is Guerlain, the first brand to bring out a cream foundation that I absolutely love (Tenue de Perfection), I had to try it. The sleek black compact provides a generously sized mirror and a soft sponge (though I wish they'd make the sponges available separately as well). I applied the powder on top of my L'or primer from the same brand, using a fluffy brush, and the first thing I noticed was the way it blurred my pores, and left me with a soft, velvety lit-from-within finish. Apparently this has the same soft-focus effect that I know and love in the Meteorites powder. As I was going away I was rather excited as this meant I'd be leaving my Meteorites Pearls behind - as well as my precious bottle of Tenue de Perfection. This is not a full-coverage foundation, though, so concealer for the under eye area is a must, and due to the textures should be applied before the powder. That said, I've found Lingerie de Peau to last all day on me, even through heavy rain, and after a day at work I don't feel I have to touch-up unless I'm attending a special occasion, as whatever shine I'd usually get in my t-zone is limited to a soft, natural, healthy glow. My skin feels great throughout the day, no caking, no itching and no dryness. It really does the same thing for skin that underwear does for the body, providing a perfecting base layer, invisible to everyone else. An added bonus to all this is having the option to buy a refill when it's empty, which is a more environmental-friendly alternative to repurchasing the whole compact, as well as being kinder on your wallet. And you'll want to repurchase this box of gorgeousness, because it feels like my own skin, only better. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="1908761830715885761-full" data-show="1908761830715885761-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Escentual user

A foundation which really does what it says it will! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="255065517289182435-full" data-show="255065517289182435-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Escentual user

Perfect Finish Cream Makeup by Fashion Fair

"This is a beautiful foundation! I was reluctant to try a cream product but am extremely pleased with the coverge, color, quality... I have sensitive skin and held my breath each day hoping my skin would not break out. It has been several weeks and my skin is great, may even look better than before. Thank you Fashion Fair for the new products and colors. I didn't want to switch but my color was discontinued and I never really found a suitable substitute so I am delighted to be back in these beautiful cosmetics. The new trio concealer is also fantastic." - Macy's user

Fruit Pigmented Powder Foundation by 100% pure

"I was very pleased with my purchase of this makeup. Having sensitive skin that's prone to breakouts and other issues like eczema, makeup can be a minefield for me. Luckily, this powder does not cause me to break out (so far-it's only been a week) and my skin doesn't have that dirty, clogged feel to it at the end of the day that I get with most other powders and foundations (Clinique and Bare Minerals ). The color blends very well, although I do wish that 100% Pure would provide a color palette for what shade powder would go best with what skin tone. Picking my color just off the written description made me a little nervous, but luckily it worked out. I do like that this product doesn't have many of those nasty chemicals we're beginning to be warned away from. The coverage is light-medium, but it builds without looking caked. If you have blemishes that are very obvious or very red, I would recommend wearing a concealer under this foundation. I have not tried their concealers, but hope to in the future. All in all, great product and well worth the money. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - 100percentpure.com user

Matte Perfection Powder Foundation by Sephora Collection

"I am 44 years old and am getting fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes. It is a big struggle to find foundation that doesn't settle into those lines. I don't think it is even possible! With that being said, I love this foundation. I used to use the Sephora Mineral Foundation in the compact, but when they discontinued it, I had to find something else. I tried the Sephora Mattifying, but it has parabens and it really irritated my eyes. This foundation is full coverage with the first swipe of the foam application disk. It stays on longer if you use primer. I used to use the Sephora Perfecting Ultra-smoothing Luminous Primer, but of course they discontinued this too! I bought the new Sephora Beauty Amplifier After Glow Primer and Luminizer and it is working well. I preferred the texture of the former, but what can you do? The new formula is kind of sticky, but it does go on smoothly. I have been using these products together for two weeks and my skin is still clear of blemishes. My makeup stays perfect ALL DAY (7am-11pm) with no shine, no touch-ups needed and no need for added concealer! It does settle into my fine lines a bit, but I don't think that any foundation won't do it! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-5578639828205686753-full" data-show="-5578639828205686753-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user
