Best & Worst Foundation for Mature Skin

Part 1

Chanel No 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Foundation

This foundation is supposed to offer buildable coverage and give a nice luminous finish. Chanel does this really well. They consistently give me the type of coverage and the type of finish I want while allowing my skin to look like skin. And Chanel Number One de Chanel is no exception.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Perfector 4 in 1 Whipped Matte Makeup

This foundation is $14.99 for .68 ounces, so you’re not getting a full fluid ounce here – just something to note. There are 6 self-adjusting shades. My shade is 02 light-medium, but it runs a little bit dark. I think there are better products out there that dry skin people would prefer. For me, this started out pretty promising, but it fell apart after a few hours.

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation

Dior revamped both of their Forever Foundations to be clean. The consistency is pretty runny, and it applies very, very quickly. I prefer to apply with a damp sponge the way I do most of my medium/medium-full coverage foundations. I don’t find this product to be super pore-blurring. This isn’t ideal for me, with my combination/oily skin.

BareMinerals Bare Pro Powder Foundation

The newly reformulated Bare Minerals Bare Pro 16 Hour Skin Perfecting Powder Foundation is $35 for .2 ounces. Keep in mind the ounces are going to be vastly different from liquid foundations because it’s a powder. I do think this is a powder foundation that any skin type could wear. I really did like that one a lot, but this one falls somewhere in the middle for me with powder foundations.
