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!
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.”
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!"
Nadia Beeman, Rachel Zoe Studio Intern
Skin Type: Dry
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."
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."
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."
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."
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."
