Alison Raffaele Reality Base Foundation

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.

Perfect Match
Purchased

I must say, I have the hardest time finding a foundation to match my skin tone. It's so hard for me, that I usually don't wear foundation OR I mix foundations to achieve the color I need. With this product I put my trust in the hands of the Birchbox "Find your shade" tool. It worked. This foundation was PERFECT match for my skin tone. It goes on easy and blends very well. I really like that it's light and it doesn't feel like it's clogging up my pores (i'm extremely touchy when it come to my facial routine). What I liked even more is the medium coverage of this product didn't cover up my freckles (yes, black girls have those too! LOL!), I have the option to use more if I want more coverage, but a little bit did the job here. I can't say enough good things about this foundation. It worked very well with my combination skin, it didn't leave my T-zone dry and the rest of my face wasn't oily. I also didn't need a mattifier. I will definitely be purchasing this product again!

I LOVED this foundation! This was my very first full size sample I purchased, I have fair to medium skin and this blended incredibly well.

I didn't really give this a good go, I'll admit. It was in a generic container, like the like the kind you get at the makeup counter. not safety sealed , and hand labelled. not sure of the color either.

Love it
SampledPurchased

I love this foundation. I don't wear a ton of makeup, and this was absolutely perfect for me. It's so light on your skin, yet still provides coverage. It was perfect for me, and will be for you if you don't like heavy makeup.

Perfect lightweight foundation
Sampled

I love this foundation during the summer months when I don't need full coverage. I hate going without makeup while running around town when I may run into someone, but hate having to "make-up" my entire face. This foundation does the trick. Light weight and perfect match. It gives just enough coverage to even out my skin tone and make me appear refreshed for the day.

Good color match
Purchased

I have mixed feelings about this foundation. Its a light, smooth formula that goes on really well. It's a great color match for my as well, but I wasn't a fan of the coverage or the duration of its effect. I don't feel as if it was a medium coverage, it seemed a little less to me. I think my BB cream gave me better medium coverage, which was a little disappointing. I also feel like it didn't last very long. However, it feels great on my skin, is oil free and I didn't feel like it clogged my pores like many do. It looked really natural on and didn't feel like I was wearing any foundation. If I didn't want more coverage, I would definitely keep purchasing.

Just OK

With so many foundations out there, this one wasn't blowing me away. Feels nice on the face, but the coverage wasn't stellar.
