These beauties won’t set off any skin alarms.

We tested a bunch of foundations in this sensitive skin category (more than for any other skin type, honestly), since any hint of fragrance or preservative in a foundation can trigger a bad skin reaction. It was genuinely hard to find ones that met our criteria and still worked for individuals with sensitive skin, but this one from Ciaté London emerged as our favorite for its pore-less, non-cakey finish and the fact that it didn’t set off any skin alarms. Itcontains hydrators such as hyaluronic acid, which help give it that dewy finish. See the full ingredient list here.
Bonus Points, Per the Experts: This product is noncomedogenic, and its hyaluronic acid and squalane are both ingredients that our derms suggested you look for in your makeup if you have sensitive skin.
One Tester Said: “This gave really smooth, buildable coverage. It was easy to apply with a makeup sponge and felt nice on my skin. It definitely gives a more dewy look, so that's something to keep in mind, but you can also just put a little powder over it for a more matte finish. The best part? It didn't irritate my very sensitive skin.”

S K: Lynching, a form of violence in which a mob, under the pretext of administering justice without trial, executes a presumed offender, often after inflicting torture and corporal mutilation. The term lynch law refers to a self-constituted court that imposes sentence on a person without due process of law. Both terms are derived from the name of Charles Lynch (1736–96), a Virginia planter and justice of the peace who, during the American Revolution, headed an irregular court formed to punish loyalists.
