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.

Not great!

I tried this foundation and it wasn't my color a little dark but after a few hours it oxidizes and it caused me to have an orange/yellow tint to my skin.

No Thanks

I have very pale skin, and even the lightest shade of this product was way too dark for me. I'll pass on this product.

Not for me

I have acne prone skin and lots of scarring so I prefer a more full coverage with my foundation. This product felt a little two watery for my taste and was hard to blend, therefore I did not get the coverage I was looking for. I also wasn't happy with the color match, this color turned out more yellowy on my skin than I would have wanted.

Greasy and ugh greasy

Maybe it's my skin but this felt so thick and greasy and made me feel like my skin was gasping to breathe. I wouldn't recommend this.

Color didn't work for me

Unfortunately the color I received was too dark for me so I couldn't use it.I also prefer more natural ingredients.

Not for me

Even if the color would have matched my skin tone, I did not like the way it made my skin feel. I use a clinique foundation that feels much nicer going on.

reality base foundation

I really did not care for this product at all. It was light weight but it had no coverage I was like I was just putting lotion on my face. My bb cream covered imperfections better then this product.

terrible

I am extremely pale and was sent a dark color. I don't know how many times I can say to make you all understand that I need the lightest products. It might have been a good product, but I wouldn't know.

Not much coverage

I like a foundation that has decent coverage and this felt way too light. It ended up looking sheer and didn't actually seem to make a difference. I also didn't feel like it made my skin feel any softer or more nourished.

Not enough coverage
Sampled

There was not enough coverage for me since I have bad acne scarring.
