Foundation Fest

Foundation Fest Master List
Here they are – all of the foundations I’ve reviewed on my YouTube channel, searchable and sortable! You can view the entire Foundation Fest playlist on YouTube.

These notes are based on my full-day wear tests. I am 48 years old and have fair, dry to normal skin with some fine lines and some sun damage. I have a neutral skin tone and can vary from neutral undertones to very slightly warm or cool. Depending on the time of year, in the Sephora ColorIQ testing I am 1Y03, 1R03, or 2R03. I prefer the look of foundations with a cool undertone (the 1R or 2R). My winter MAC shade is NW10 and the rest of the year I am NW13-15. My favorite finish is a natural satin to luminous finish, and I do not like to appear overly dewy (i.e. sweaty-dewy).

Type in the SEARCH box below to filter results. Some keywords to try:
drugstore, high end, hydrating, smooth, blurred, dewy, matte, satin, cruelty free, vegan, SPF
