12 Best Foundations
We put tons of foundations up to a face-to-face challenge -- see which makeup is the reining champ
What she thought: "Called "lit-from-within makeup" by the company, this SPF-infused foundation truly lives up to the hype. For one, the bottle is so gorgeous it might fight your perfume bottle for space on your counter top and win. Two, the light, liquid formula offers sufficient coverage, but without looking cakey or feeling like makeup on your skin. It literally becomes one with your face soon after applying it. A makeup artist from a competitive brand even claimed it "looks like skin" after I told her what I was wearing. But the compliments didn't end there. My intern told me she hopes her skin looks as glowy as mine does when she's my age, which I'm taking as a positive thing. It's all thanks to the subtle light reflective quality and moisturizing properties of this genius formula, which took 10 years of research and currently has seven international patents pending. One of the best foundations I've tested in a long time."
