Team Zoe Puts Treatment Foundation To The Test
At Team Zoe, we’re always down to try something new, be it an edgy new silhouette, a colorful accessory trend or a fresh beauty product. Paying mind to the current craze of makeup that is also skincare, we traded out our go-to foundations to try formulas of a treatment variety. Serving a similar purpose to a BB or CC cream, but with longer wear coverage, this liquid makeup conceals and perfects while also benefiting your complexion. From Clinique to Trish McEvoy and Clarins, see which treatment foundations have our seal of approval!
Discover the treatment foundations we're loving!
Buxom Weightless Foundation
Jennifer Ash, Editorial Assistant Skin Type: Oily Shade: Dim The Light Feedback: "I love the texture of this barely-there foundation - it’s super light and literally melts right into your skin without caking. The formula is minimal in coverage (perfect for daytime wear) and super hydrating, which makes it ideal for dryer skin types.”
Trish McEvoy Even Skin Treatment Foundation SPF 15
Kendall Cohan, Product Development Associate Skin Type: Combination Shade: Golden Beige Feedback: "On a daily basis I live by the mantra, less is more. Trish McEvoy’s Even Skin Treatment Foundation provides the perfect amount of coverage for daytime use - it goes on feather light, softly evens out any skin imperfections and redness, and enhances my natural glow with a dewy finish. I’m definitely a fan!"
Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15
Nadia Beeman, Rachel Zoe Studio Intern Skin Type: Dry Shade: Honey Feedback: "Clinique Even Better in Honey is a great product for a long day - it's very smooth and easy to build blush over. It gave me a special matte complexion and was light on my pores! Even after I took it off my skin felt moisturized."
Dior Beauty Capture Totale Foundation
Christian David, Graphic Designer Skin Type: Sensitive Shade: 031 Sand Feedback: "Pleasant smell, nice texture, spreads well with a matte finish. I am used to a foundation with a dewy finish but I don't mind the matte texture - it doesn't feel heavy. You can definitely control how much coverage you want, but for the most part I would say this foundation is medium coverage."
Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation SPF 10
Jessica Amento, Editorial Manager Skin Type: Combination Shade: 104 Cream Feedback: "I am always nervous about trying new foundations because my skin is fairly sensitive, but I really love this one! It has a very creamy texture, finishes mostly matte and lasted throughout the work day. It also has a nice a watermelon scent."
L'Oreal True Match Healthy Luminous Makeup SPF 20
Lindsay Pogemiller, Styling Assistant Skin Type: Combinatoin Shade: Sand Beige Feedback: "The L’oreal True Match foundation is one I would use day to day. It wasn’t too heavy, but helped even out my skin tone. I also like that it has SPF 20, so I know I am protected. My skin still felt soft, not 'cakey' with it on. This product did not irritate my sensitive skin and I liked the matte finish."
Lancome Teint Visionnaire Skin Correcting Makeup Duo
Megan Gustashaw, Editorial Director Skin Type: Dry, Fair Shade: 110 Ivoire C Feedback: "There were two major pluses with this foundation: SPF 20 and a little pot attached to the cap of the bottle with a matching cream concealer. Genius! I love 2-in-1 products. The formula was moderate in terms of coverage - definitely not as weightless as a CC cream, which is fine by me. I find that my makeup stays on better when I wear a slightly more substantial foundation."
