Birchbox Breakdown

Many thick, goopy foundations make us feel about as unnatural-looking as the Joker. Not so funny. We prefer a makeup look that’s a little more inconspicuous, so naturally, we gravitated toward Alison Raffaele’s Reality Base Foundation. Its weightless, oil-free formula is designed to look completely natural on skin, providing medium coverage and leaving your face silky-smooth. The foundation contains the protective and restorative Frutta di VitaTM antioxidant complex, a brand signature ingredient.

How it Works

Frutta di VitaTM is rich in vitamin C and beta carotene (thanks to its all-important pomegranate, goji berry, and resveratrol ingredients). The antioxidant complex is just that—complex. It performs many functions: it minimizes the appearance of age and sun spots, promotes cell turnover and a more even skin tone, and helps heal existing skin damage. The foundation comes in seven different shades, aptly named Skintone 1, Skintone 2, and, well, you get the idea.

How to Use

Using fingers, a brush, or a sponge, massage foundation gently over face. Double-check to ensure proper blending.

This is possibly the truest foundation match I have ever found...It's airy yet covers flaws. I love this!!!!!!!! It seemed to keep shine away too, which was an added bonus for me.

Not for me

This formula is too greasy and the color is not a good match. I do not often wear foundation, and I found this is not the right once-in-a-while foundation for me.

I really like this foundation. It goes on really smooth and is not heavy feeling on my face. It blends in really nice.

Ok

Not bad, just not my favorite. One thing that probably didn't help is I didn't receive quite the right shade for my skin tone. I thought the coverage was good I just wasn't the biggest fan of how it blended into my skin.

I am very happy with this foundation. It feels light going on but gives me really good coverage. It also blends easily.

Best foundation ever
Purchased

Love love love the lightweight texture that glides onto skin and still manages to provide the perfect level of coverage. It looks like skin, but better.

might be for younger skin

I like a light coverage but this was too sheer for me. Funny smell and heavy texture when you first apply.
