I'm currently using Clinique redness solutions liquid foundation which I really like but I just fancy a change. Don't know if it's just me, but after a while, I start to feel like my foundation doesn't look as good.

What does everyone use? Willing to pay up to £30. Thanks!

Makeup Forever HD - looks natural, good coverage and suits any skin type.

Rimmel Wake Me Up in the orange topped bottle is ace!

I've got the Mac face and body one at the moment but I am just not sure about it.... I end up looking shiny so I too am on the hunt for a new one once this massive bottle runs out (in probably about 2025!)

Diorskin forever. A little goes a long way and it has good staying power.

Watching with interest. I've long worn Bobbi Brown because it's one of the few brands that have the right shade for my yellowy skin but I've recently noticed it's gone by lunchtime.

I have fair, dry skin. My all time favourites are Armani Luminous Silk, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser and Urban Decay One and Only.

MAC studio fix is currently my fave. I have spotty and blotchy skin and this is the only foundation I've found that gives fab coverage plus lasts till evening.

I have used benefit & Bobbi brown but found they didn't stay on my face past lunchtime

I love Laura Geller, long lasting, good for your skin, feels like nothing is on and really ethical country!

Urban Decay All Nighter for my oily skin

Evvy543 Tue 08-Nov-16 20:56:34

Maybelline dream flawless nude, the little bottle with pipet shaped wand. I find this really easy to apply.

Rimmel match perfection foundation.

Estée Lauder Doublewear-amazing!

Lancôme teint miracle, gone through most of the others - Dior, Chanel, Estee l.

Always go back to Lancôme!

yoga not if you have dry skin, looks like vintage distressed! 😩

YY to Armani, its expensive but worth it for the coverage.
I really recommend going to a HoF or JL or somewhere similar and getting colour matched for a few. they will give you testers if you ask (enough for a couple of days) and then you can make your own mind up. Everyone's skin is so different its hard to take a recommendation IMO

I've just ordered the Laura Geller baked foundation MotherOfBeagles and am very excited as I love the bronzer.

My other favourites are Clinique Even Better and the Bargainous yet fabulous W7 HD foundation (£2.99)

Max factor facefinity compact. I've been using it for 15 years now, just wish they did a refill as it's scary to think how many compacts with mirrors I've thrown away over the years!
It's so easy to apply like a powder. My face is done in less that a minute and looks flawless.

Thank you all so much for the recommendations.

Dior star. Not sheer but not cakey. Gives you a slight glow without shimmer. Lasts all day, I use a primer as I live in a very hot country but I'm sure it would last in U.K. Without. I just love it and I'd go as far as to say it's my HG of foundations. smile

Nars sheer glow. I always come back to it but then I have dry dehydrated skin. On less spendy days the Bourjois healthy mix serum is seriously good.

poppym12 Wed 09-Nov-16 13:55:37

I don't need or like very much coverage so I use pixi h20 tint. Love it.

Rimmel Match Perfection in 010 Porcelain, it's the palest foundation available without splashing out on counter brands. To be honest even Clinique etc dont sell foundation pale enough for me so I was amazed to find one in my shade off a shelf in Superdrug for less than £10!

FrustratedFrugal Wed 09-Nov-16 15:56:10

Sensai Total Finish compact in the palest shade. Fab coverage, natural but flawless finish, and pale enough.

allfurcoatnoknickers Wed 09-Nov-16 16:39:02

Becca Aqua Luminous. Very light coverage but gives a lovely glow and comes in a huge variety of shares. I use it in conjunction with the Becca Backlight primer and it stays on all day.
