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.

My new summer foundation
SampledPurchased

I needed a slightly darker shade of foundation for my summer tan and this was perfect. Goes on like a BB cream, covers like a foundation. Barely needs a powder finish. I've been recommending it to all my friends!

Love this!

This was so smooth and flawless and wonderful! I had the sample for a while before I actually used it, and I'm so impressed! The product glided on perfectly, great coverage and blend-ability. I will definitely consider purchasing this foundation once I run out of my current brand.

Loved it!

Even though the shade was a bit darker than my skin it went on smooth and DIDN"T MAKE ME BREAK OUT! That is very rare. It gave my skin a velvety appearance and was barely detectable. I am ordering the full size in my shade right away!

Great foundation
SampledPurchased

Usually, I don't like foundation. I would do anything to avoid using it. But this one makes my skin look so fantastic, and is so light that I don't even feel like I'm wearing makeup, that I don't mind wearing it every day. I just wear this with a little blush and a little mascara, and I feel like I'm totally put together. And people always complement me on my skin when I wear this makeup, too.

Great for my skin!

This is the best foundation I have used. It balances color and goes on very light and smooth. I have a little redness in my skin and very light blemish scarring in places and this completely covers without looking like I am wearing foundation.

Melts into Your Skin

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
Sampled

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.
