Great Foundations: Makeup That Works

After a recent trip to Sephora, I was offered a free gift. One of the choices was Benefit's Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation Faker and I cannot remember the other one. I don't often wear a liquid makeup on my face (I use loose powder), but I went with Benefit because I like a lot of their products and a few too many late nights had my under eye circles super hard to conceal.

I loved it!

I have sensitive and problem skin -- and it didn't irritate at all. It's super light and goes on smooth, but dries like a powder. It does wonders on the darkness under my eyes and evens out my cheeks without making me feel like I have pounds of makeup on.

There's lots of buzz going on at CafeMom about what liquid foundations work best. hot_mommy_of2 loves Almay Smart Shade because it blends really well and it doesn't look like you have makeup on. I agree...I've tried this and really like it, too.

tredafh uses Estee Lauder Double Wear because it's lasts for a long time (15 hours!) and she doesn't need to apply powder with it.

I've heard some good things about Rimmel Cool Matte Mousse Foundation and it's little_byrd14's favorite.

drowninginboys uses Max Factor's Pan Stik and sets it with loose powder. She says it stays in place all day!

Everyone's skin has different what kind of skin do you have and what's your favorite liquid foundation?

    MAC Studio Fix.

    It's pressed powder but has the finish of liquid make-up.

    I don't use liquid foundation. I use my mousterizer and mineral powder and it's the best thing I've ever tried. It covers every single flaw (even a huge zit I once had) and it doesn't feel heavy or anything .I'm never going back to liquid again.

    My new favorite is by mark, the other avon line.  It's called Face Xpert, is very affordable, and boutique quality!  It's liquid, dries nicely and is so blendable. I stopped using Clinique because it's so much better for my adult oily skin.

    Clinique superfit is the only foundation allowed to touch my skin!
