Comments on "4 Liquid foundations when full coverage is a must"

Stella July 10, 2013 | 5:55 AM

Sorry, but 3 out of 4 of these products do not offer full coverage. I can tell you from experience because I have used them. Stila was one of the ones I didn't buy because I could not get the correct shade. - Tarte Clay, caked on my face after an hour of wear.....returned it for Forever make up HD. Though the shade is right on, the "full coverage" is non existent. I have to apply 3 x's to get any coverage at all. I would have returned that one too but I needed foundation badly. Estee Lauder double wear is horrible. At first the shade was perfect, as the day wore on it changed to an ashy color, returned that one for another warmer shade, which turned orange. By the way, the "full coverage" is more like medium coverage. I have used all of the top selling primers also in hopes of getting the coverage I need.....doesn't work. Every top selling cosmetics company has changed the formula or discontinued full coverage foundation, including high end one YSL and Channel. I wore YSL for over 20 years. 5 years ago they started the downward spiral of discontinuing full coverage. This is truly a hugh problem.

Thank you for this! I've been needing a full-coverage makeup (I usually will just use a BB cream) for my Valentine's Day date.
