Hi! I wanted to try a new foundation and concealer. I am currently using 'wet n wild photofocus foundation' and 'makeup revolution conceal & define', but I am looking for something new and equally good. Any suggestions, what are the best foundations and concealer? Or what do you use and love?

I kept hearing good things about it, being great coverage for a cheap brand. But it smells like paint thinner. Does it always smell like that, or did I get a bad bottle? I even had my SO smell it, and he also thought it smelled like paint thinner, warned me not to put it on my face.

I've been using Cover Girl Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation. It has good coverage, but light ebough that I don't feel like I'm wearing any makeup. I tried their matte formula, but it made my face oily. I also like the E.L.F. brand stick foundation, but they stopped carrying it most places. I think Ulta online is one of the few places that carry it, which is when I switched to trying the wet n wild.

I love Maybelline. I do the Dream Liquid as my everyday. For a rare big night out, I put on my Dream Liquid first and then use Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse, which is a really heavy coverage for everyday but helps me look really great for nights out.

I love the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless or the Maybelline Superstay.

For concealer, it doesn’t get much better than the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer.

Tarte Shape Tape for concealer is my favorite.

I have yet to find a foundation I love enough to recommend.

Yeah, I would have to agree with that. I was thinking in terms of drug store brands. I figured someone using Wet & Wild would have a hard time justifying $27 for concealer.

That's a rude thing to assume. The OP said nothing about a budget. Many beauty bloggers have been recommending the wet n wild photo focus foundation lately. That's why I tried it. I had been seeing so many recommendations, and figured why not try it for $5. That doesn't mean I can't afford anything better, it's just a foundation that's gotten a lot of buzz lately. I just watched a video yesterday where the woman was using it as her foundation, and then used the tarte concealer. It's perfectly fine to use both.

I didn't intend it to be rude. I apologize.

For the record, I use both drug store and prestige. I was just explaining why I was focusing on drug store brands.

Also, please note that I didn't comment on whether or not they could afford anything better. Simply that they might not be able to justify the higher price. I can afford Tom Ford mascara, but I can't justify the price tag when my L'Oreal Lash Paradise is so good.

I totally caught that and presumed that was exactly what you meant by it.


One of the best little concealers I've ever tried but can't find now was a little tattoo concealer pencil sample that came attached to a Hard Candy primer I purchased. It's for smaller spots and works better than anything I'd ever tried (particularly on my fair complexion). But, I can't seem to find it anywhere now.
