I love CYO & Revlon Photoready.
I've also accepted the fact there isn't one foundation/BBC that will match my skin tone/undertone.

Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation SPF 17, blends nicely. I have normal to dry skin now that I'm older and this is the one that really works for me now. It's $45.00

I've been using Bare Minerals powder foundation for years. I love it because it's light but buildable. The finish is natural. I used it with their all over face powder in Faux Tan and I find it gives me a rich, warm look which I'm loving right now.
Bare Minerals has a ton of shades so you may find one that matches your skin tone.

I just started using their tinted moisturizer. I like it; however, I find it works better with my matte primer. If I don't use a primer or use my glow primer that is oil-based, it's melted off by mid-day.

Ditto. I used to have to blend it but not anymore. They'll generally give you a 7-10 day free sample to try also.

Any ideas on other good foundations I could try? We do have an Ulta by us and I've wanted to go in there but am terrified to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to foundation.

HELP!
My go to foundations are usually from Nars, Estee Lauder, and Lancome. All are ideal for sensitive skin.

Default Tinted Moisturizer

I use one by Laura Mercier and like it and wear it every day like a moisturizer if I am going out. But lately it doesn't seem to be doing much for my aging skin. I also bought their primer (glowy) and were it under the moisturizer for evenings. It is good but too much for day time.

Do you use one everyday and like it? Do you wear a primer with it? Do you like the coverage?

I have been using a moisturizing foundation but recently I've been using Dr Jart Cicapair tiger grass color corrector and love it. It is green but when you put it on it reduces redness and turns into a beige. It's also a treatment. It's said that when a tiger is wounded it rolls into the plant that this is made of, Cicapair and that's why it's also named tiger grass.

I started going without foundation now and my skin looks so much better and natural.

Since my earlier post from 2007(!), I've stopped using foundation and instead use a dab or two of concealer where I need it. Everyone's face has different skin tones. And for a more natural look, IMO it's best to let the world see your facial skin, and instead minimize ones natural flaws.

Men don't have to worry about foundation. And it looks odd to see women where their entire face is covered with one evenly applied shade of foundation with accents of eye makeup and blush contours. Let your skin breathe!!! And save a ton of money not buying so much makeup products.
