I’ve been trying out lots of different non-drugstore foundations recently. The best one I’ve found so far is Elizabeth Arden Intervene. But I’m going to try out a couple more before I make my decision and actually purchase the foundation.

For light-medium coverage, I really like my Almay color match smart shade liquid foundation.

i used to use MAC and Almay but I switched to bare minerals about 6 months ago and like it much better!

I only wear makeup when I go for nights out (date nights, girls night out, fancy dinner etc.) so I’m no pro, but I use the ever popular MAC studio fix.

I wore Bare Minerals for years. I love the light coverage it gives (and most liquid foundations I’ve tried just look too thick).  I have dry skin in the winter, so I wanted to try something a little more moisurizing.  I recently switched to Benefit “Some Kind of Beautiful.”  It’s a really light foundation (and actually they only have 3 colors, but the original has worked form me and all of my sisters (and we all have different colored skin).  It’s a sheer coverage, so when I want a little more, I’ll still use some of my bare minerals on top of it to set it.  It’s been working well for me!

I love neutrogena Healthy Skin, I feel like it really helps even my skin tone after a few weeks of using it. I also love Aveeno Positively Radiant face wash, it also helps even skin tone, esp if you tan.

Bare Minerals was my first mineral foundation. I have since moved onto Laura Mercier’s mineral foundation, which I love. I didn’t like how the Bridesmaid or Best Man foundation left me kind of shiny, and felt like it was too heavy. LM’s is lightweight, but also provides great coverage.

i use Revlon PhotoReady and i love it – although, when you first put it in your hand it looks a bit sparkly, its not all glittery on your face or anything – it gives a nice, light, even complexion – even through gross gym-sweating days 😉

I LOVE L’Oreal Infalible liquid foundation. I even got my mom and sister hooked on it. I used to use Bare Minerals, and while I liked it, it’s not so affordable for someone on a budget. I also like the coverage it gives, and most of the time CVS, Rite Aid, or Walgreens has them on sale or BOGO.

I love MakeupForever at Sephora. It covers everything but doesn’t feel too cakey!

I tried the PhotoReady foundation too (I got the powder as well).  I REALLY like it.  It isn’t too heavy but gives a good finish.  The powder I would say has to be reapplied every 3 hours or so especially in the heat but the foundation underneath stays on all day.

I splurged on this because I didn’t have any good foundation to wear and with all the wedding festivities I needed something good!
