I like Clinique Superfit a lot. It’s light to moderate coverage on me, and seems to help my shiny skin (which is oily, but less so than when I was a teenager). I apply it with clean fingers and follow with a dusting of loose powder.

I use a brand called CoverFX, it is a dermatologist brand that they sell at Sephora (I have really sensitive skin). I think The one I use is actually a cream foundation and it really does last all day but is super light (at least compared to the icky mac stuff I used to use). It was about $42 but I have been using it for the last month and I’m not even half done with it! I don’t know anyone else who uses it but it is what Sephora recommended to me when I asked for “mac coverage without being so terrible for my skin.”

I used to use Clinique but it didn’t offer the coverage that I sometimes need.

I use cheap, old Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation. I have tried Sephora brand foundation and the “HD” foundation they recommend (can’t remember the name of the brand), and for me, Revlon stays ALL DAY, like a mofo.

Were you using Prescriptives??? Because that’s what I was using (and it is no longer being made) I switched over to Clinique, and I am right on board with everyone else – love it!  I also just got a macy’s coupon in the mail today (from Clinique) offering a free FULL SIZE of any one of their makeup foundations for former Prescriptives customers! woohoo!

I’m a drug store foundation girl, I use Covergirl Trueblend. I tried the department store brands but they all seemed to irritate my sensative skin. The Covergirl lasts all day but I don’t feel like I’m wearing it, plus it matches my skin really really well.

I really like Origins ‘Nude & Improved’, it’s a little more coverage than tinted foundation, but not super heavy, doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, and lasts all day (even pretty well through an intense workout).

Mary Kay liquid or powder foundations work great!!!  The best I’ve ever tried!
