Silicone-free liquid foundations: an updated list

Monday, April 11, 2011

I realized that we haven’t updated this list, so here we go again! This list contains only liquid foundations (no cremes, powders, or tinted moisturizers), and runs approximately from the least to the most expensive. As usual, feel free to let me know in the comments if you’ve found any others.

Ingredients for all products can be found in the title line of each link. Just hover your mouse over the price to see it!

Additionally, if you would like to share our list of silicone-free liquid foundations, please link directly to this post. It takes quite a few hours of work to create a post like this one, and I would greatly appreciate it if you could refrain from replicating any or all of the content — thank you!

    Ooh, what a neat list. A friend of mine has a really hard time finding good, silicone free liquid foundations.

    Are any of these full-coverage, anyone know? :) I'm starting to kind of hate on CoverFX (creme).

  4. Goodness, none of these brands can be found in Singapore. X'(

  5. Thank you so much for this!!! I have been needing a list of silicone free makeup and it is difficult to find the information and also the foundations! I really appreciate this!

    Another one: Kett Hydro. I think a lot of air brush foundations are cone-free, or at least low-cone, and can be applied with a stippling brush or damp sponge.

    A local retailor carries this, so I'll have to check it out next time I'm downtown.

    I checked out the Almay you have listed and it had a ton of silicones, same with the cover girl- not sure which shade is silicone free but i looked at at least five shades. I love that you dedicate posts to silicone free stuff, I am always on the hunt!

  8. What about Stila Illuminating Foundation? An older one but still around and hopefully not messed with anytime soon.

  9. about the 100% pure brand, I was reading on paula's choice website and other websites (

    that they don't follow "follow regulatory guidelines for ingredient lists; several products contain irritating natural ingredients that hurt skin's ability to look and act younger; jar packaging allows the natural ingredients to break down and become ineffective from repeated exposure to air and light."

    I'm not sure about this claim but I know some of the websites I read they said similar things. I was wondering if this was true or not, because I'm thinking of purchasing their foundation since its all natural …but i'm worried that it might breakout my skin :'[

  10. sorry this is my first time commenting on a blog. did my other question get in because it wasn't showing up after? ahhaha. confused o.o also thanks for the list on the other hand.

  11. I found that Juice Beauty has a liquid foundation that's silicone free. they also have a tinted moisturizer w/spf silicone free non-nano zinc oxide (safest sunscreen ingredient and non nano doesn't penetrate the skin though that depends on the color though)

  12. Also for your updated list:
    1) GOSH – natural touch foundation
    2) The Balm Cream – Time Balm Foundation
    3) Mally Beauty – Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation

    As you can see, I've also been on the hunt for silicone free base products. Looking forward to your updated list!

  13. Also for your updated list:
    1) GOSH – natural touch foundation
    2) The Balm Cream – Time Balm Foundation
    3) Mally Beauty – Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation

    As you can see, I've also been on the hunt for silicone free base products. Looking forward to your updated list!

  14. Another one I've recently found which is pretty amazing (price-wiser too haha): makeup forever face and body foundation

    I am curious if you have done any research on the different types of silicones. Such as water soluble compared to non water soluble. My skin is crazy sensitive to almost every silicone based product. Even hair products will cause a break out for me. However I can wear Vichy Dermablend foundation with no problems at all. It has dimethicone but for some reason this formula I can wear. My only issue is their color selection, it's less than ideal. Still searching… Ugh

  16. Hi Rae. U might just be my last hope for beautiful skin. :) my skin can't tolerate silicones as well (liquid form, but powder my skin seems to play nice). So I've tried Laura mercier, it was great for first few mths, I had zits here & there still but less. At that time I was certain my skin was just purging and was getting better. Lately, I break out with cystic acne (heavily on my chin) just within 24 -48 hr of using the foundation. I guess my skin has its threshold. I suspect that my skin can't tolerate the silica in it (another form of silicone) though I've read such is not possible since it's not silicone as per se. However, I've once tried a mineral loose powder before with all are safe ingredients except it has silica in it & it broke me out. So I was convinced that silica was part of my problem. So.. Help! I need a new foundation but can't seem to find a single one that omits these 2 culprits completely. I live in Asia, that makes matter worst since not many silicone free foundations are available here in boutiques or even over the counters. Getting things online such a hassle- no international shipping service, difficult to select the right shade and many of the companies heavy on d claims but seem reluctant to list completely their ingredients for consumers to peruse. Whatever it is, thanks a bunch! Appreciate ur help.
