Cover Test

Dior Forever Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Fluide Makeup ($46)

The Texture: This semimatte liquid sets on contact but doesn’t leave skin feeling tight.

Coverage level: Medium to full.

Best for: Dry skin.  Mattifying ingredients are balanced with hydrating ones, plus it has anti-inflammatory mallow-flower extract.



















Dolce & Gabanna Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation ($55)

The texture: With a fluffy consistency, this foundation feels more like a luxerious face cream than makeup.

Coverage: Goes on light but can be layered for more coverage.

Best for: Dull skin.  This fully hides flaws while giving skin a lit-from-within quality without obvious shine or shimmer.















Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup ($38)

The texture: You could mistake this airy, triple-milled mineral makeup for baby powder – it’s that soft.

Coverage level: It can be light or full, depending on how you apply it.

Best for: Oily skin.  this won’t give you that too-pearly finish of many mineral foundations, and it allows your skin to peek through.

The texture: This lightweight moisturizing liquid melts into the skin quickly for a nonstreaky finish.

Coverage level: Medium

Best for: Aging skin.  Pumped with ingredients from Repairwear Laser Focus serum, this leaves fine lines softened even after you take it off.
