From BB creams to CC creams to powder, there are so many different types of foundation to choose from. If you don’t know where to start or you’re just looking for a new product, you might find Pigment File useful. It’s a searchable and filterable database of every foundation on the market.
You can either browse by product or select different criteria that matter to you: brand, coverage, finish, skin type, SPF, and more. They even include a guide to each category here. If you’re searching the tool, you’ll then get a list of products that match your search. Each product includes relevant details about its coverage, formula, finish, what shades it comes in, etc.
Via Product Hunt, Pigment File’s creator explained:
Foundation is the first (and I’ll say it — most important) step in a makeup routine. Right now, I can go to a retailer’s site, like Target or Sephora, and search their inventory. But that search is limited to just their inventory. I want to consider the *hundreds* of other options too. Because what each person needs from a foundation is super specific.
Bear in mind that some foundations that are available overseas may not have been released in Australia but it’s still a useful tool to assess which products may work for you. To try the tool out, head to the link below.
