Hey there, fabulous beauties! Maggie D here, your go-to makeup guru for all things fabulous and fifty-plus. Today, I’ve got the lowdown on the quest for the holy grail of foundations that actually work for mature skin. If you’ve been struggling like me, searching for that perfect match that doesn’t settle into every nook and cranny, worry not – I’ve got your back!
The Foundation Fails
Let’s start with the not-so-great contenders. Unfortunately, Bobbi Brown’s lightweight, water-based foundation left me emphasizing every crease and crevice, especially around the eyes. Elf’s flawless satin foundation, although promising medium coverage, turned out to be too light and polka-dotted my pores. The Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream? Grease city, and not the kind of city we want to live in!

This lightweight gem is perfect for everyday wear. With a sheer tint that doesn’t emphasize texture, it’s my go-to for a natural, comfortable look. Plus, it absorbs nicely, isn’t greasy, and blends effortlessly.
Surprisingly, this one made the cut! In a new shade, it proved me wrong with its super-blendable formula. It’s a medium-thickness foundation that feels light, doesn’t settle into fine lines, and provides a natural finish.
Though a recent addition to my lineup, Tatcha’s Silk Liquid is a promising contender. Its thin consistency and blurring effects make it a potential winner, though I’m still experimenting with different primers.
The underdog that blew me away! Despite its strange applicator and strong fragrance, this foundation is a game-changer. It doesn’t settle into fine lines, slightly blurs texture, and even improves the look of my skin.
