    Default Your favorite foundation

    I've tried so many different brands over the years, everything from expensive department store brands all the way down to the cheapies. And the other day I thought what the hell, I might as well try one more (even though I own like 12 different brands ), and I bought Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse foundation. IT IS THE BEST FOUNDATION I HAVE EVER OWNED. It literally stays on for hours without needing a touchup, and I use very little of it. Normally, I'm apprehensive about buying foundation from a regular store because I usually get the wrong shade, but I lucked out this time. Not to mention it's not runny at all, and doesn't make me look like I have any foundation on at all, it just looks like I have a natural glow. Imo, it's way better than MAC, Lancome, Clinique, or any other mid brands that I've bought, and it was only $7! YAY.

    I thought about switching to bare essentials or something, but I have oily skin and like the natural matte look that seems to be hard to get with the mineral powders (at least for more than a few hours).

    I was going to buy Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation, because I've heard that it lasts for hours as well, but why bother spending $35 when I found something wonderful for $7?

    Has anyone tried EL's Double Wear or Maybelline's mousse foundation? If not, what's your go to foundation?

    I use MAC studio fix powder. It matches my complexion, and it looks flawless on me. All of my make-up comes from MAC except some cheap lip gloss that compliments my Nico Now lip glass by MAC..

    I use bare minerals and I love it. When I used regular foundations my favourite brand was Helena Rubinstein.

    I also have a lot of makeup by MAC, but I've never tried their studio fix powder. I ADORE their eyeshadow and blush, because you only need a little bit and it seems to last for hours.

    I've never tried Helena Rubinstein's products either, in fact I don't recall ever seeing it in a store, but I'll check it out online.

    That is so funny! I just discovered Maybelline's Mineral Power (which is liquid) and am in love with it! I bought it at Targets after seeing a commercial. Goes on smooth as silk & beats the heck out of Clinique or Shishido. I wanted to try mineral again,with oily skin I got annoyed with the powder stuff-that doesn't work for me. This REALLY does. I am glad to know I am not the only one! They have taken over,far as I am concerned.

    McJag, I'll try the Mineral Power, I've heard some good things about it. Does it stay on for hours like the dream matte mousse? That's the problem with oily skin- a lot of foundations look like crap after a few hours.

    Glitter, I've never personally tried sheer cover, but I do know a few people who have tried it, and I did research some consumer reviews about it, and a lot of the feedback wasn't good. Apparently it's not good at hiding anything like Bare Essentials supposedly does. SC is a lot less expensive, but unless you have awesome skin and just want a little something over your skin, I would pass on it. Seriously, I had my debit card out and everything, ready to order it, then I remembered some of my friends have it so I'm glad I called them first.

    It really does. I still need those oil blotter papers some,but it works.And the best part for me-it has a shade that matches me! I wonder if the dream matte mousse,I have not tried yet. This tiny bottle will last a long time,you don't use much! Might as well get some of your kind also. Can't hurt! I still so happy to find out I am not the only one out there saying"Wow! Maybelline-I think this beats Clinique!"

    I really like Cover Girl's Clean Makeup. I'm so fair complected, it's hard to find the right shade that isn't too light or too tan/pinky which equals makeup lines. The Ivory is perfect.

    I've tried loads and I love the colour match thatI get from Smashbox's "petal" but it just doesn't give me the coverage I now need, so I use bare minerals. It was recommended to me and its really good.
    I've tried their mineral veil for the first time last weekend and I'm a convert - it didn't bring me out either which was why I'd avoided it for ages.....

    My main problem with foundation is getting it both light enough and a pinky not beigey colour.

    Exactly my prob,too! And I hate those orange jaw lines some people run around with! I get it to match my neck & it can be hard. Maybelline does better for me than Shishido even.Porcelain Ivory works for me (in maybelline). We sound close to the same color!

    I don't wear blush, just eyeshadow... MAC have really brilliant colors and it does last long.

    I wear Clarins which I like, but I'd be open to trying something else, I've heard Chanel is good

    I have just begun (in the last six months) using Mary Kay's version of minerals foundation and I LOVE it. It literally washes years off my face, without making me look made up.

    However, after reading about sparkly's discovery, I want to try that after I run out of my present foundation. It sounds great, and I like Maybelline mascaras A LOT...even if they are cheap, they're great!

    I like Rimmel. I have a MAC Dewy one but I think it looks a bit chalky.
