This Laura Mercier foundation is oil-free (very important for a foundation!) and is long-lasting. If you want fresh and healthy looking skin, try this one. Your skin will be radiant. If you also need to cover up some skin blemishes, this can do the trick.
“I just found this foundation and I can not believe the way it makes my skin look. I have horrible malasma from being pregnant, and it covers it completely. I was really unsure because it is so freaking expensive, but now I am hooked. I will definitely be buying this again.”

LORAC is also oil-free **and can help delay the formation of wrinkles! This is because it’s an **anti-aging foundation that has SPF 14, which can help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
“I love this foundation! Lorac’s entire prime and perfect lineup is a great start for a flawless face, but this foundation really completes the look. It has a creamy, thicker consistency than some (not runny at all), and you only need a small amount to cover the entire face. Plus, the formula is very buildable - if you want more coverage in a certain area, or want to apply more later in the day before going out, it still looks natural. One thing I’ve found is that if you use your fingers to apply instead of a foundation brush, you can rub in circular motions (the way you would apply moisturizer or night cream) and get heavier coverage.”

5. Perfekt Skin Perfection Gel
The Perfekt Skin Perfection gelis a great buy because it’s an all-in-one vitamin enriched, sweat-resistant and water-resistant foundation. You can easily put this on and it is easily absorbed since it’s in gel form.
“This is a primer and foundation in one and it’s a great price. I’ve tried many foundations, always hoping the next one will make me look better than I actually do. This is a fantastic find!
I do Love this for days when I don’t need much coverage. I have huge pores, and this fills them in nicely and mattes down my skin for the day. It also does wonders for my redness and fine lines.”
- Michelle, cosmetics and beauty expert
6. Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15
Stila’s foundation is one of my favorites in this lot. Sheer yet color tinted, this foundation is also a moisturizer **that has SPF 15. Hence, you can definitely say that this is a **sun-shielding tinted moisturizer.
