Foundation question

Posted by   + Show Post
Hi I just joined the group! I have used the mineral foundation from Lancôme for years...before that I used Estée Lauder cream foundation and the liquid foundation from Clinique. My Lancôme is almost finished, and wanted something new. Basically I don't need heavy coverage, especially with the weather getting warmer. Are there any drugstore brands you ladies have tried? Or any products that work well? Thanks for reading!

I just bough Physicians Formula Airbrushing Pressed Mineral Powder foundation (Now a DS brand). So far I really like it. I literally bought it 2 days ago, so I have to wear it a couple more times before I can do a good review. I can say that I use it over liquid as a finishing powder. If you used it alone it would be a very light coverage. It's talc free and SPF 30.

I love my L'Oréal True Match. It has a light coverage and blends super good.

I have to agree. I may be biased as a consultant ;-) lol
But before trying Mary Kay I tried so many others that I was completely unsatisfied with.

With Mary Kay's I like the even coverage, the light feel and the flawless finish. I have combination oily skin so I don't like heavy feeling foundation.

I like the options Mary Kay has with tinted moisturizer as a lightweight sheer coverage, liquid foundations in medium, luminous or matte coverage, and a variety of powders from Creme-to-powder, pressed powder, mineral powder, etc.

I've tried almost all of the varieties and have been satisfied with each. Especially with the shade matching. I used to not be able to find the right shade in other brands. But Mary Kay has my shade in several of their options.
