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 worth the money

I have drug store foundations I would much rather and spend my money on other items.

Tiny sample
Sampled

While it is a very lightweight formula, the packaging was too small and the color i received was slightly dark for my face.

Not for me;-(
Sampled

I really wanted to like this. Right now I'm stuck in between BBs and traditional foundation. I was hoping his would bridge the chasm. I actually got past the fact that it was totally the wrong shade for me and concentrated on the coverage. It's too close to typical foundation.

Silky feel but not a great all day product
Sampled

This foundation has a silky feel to it making it go on nice but after several hours it felt like it was melting off my face even with a mineral powder applied over it. I suppose I could try it with a primer-- so many primers have this same silky feel when applied that it seems redundant.

foundation not enough coverage
Sampled

There did not seem to be enough coverage for me. I had to use another product to give a better finish to my make up.

Personal preference
Sampled

I think foundation is such a personal purchase but I agree with the other posters about the thinness of this foundation. It was really runny, which I didn't care for. It was, however, very lightweight, so would be good for those not looking for much coverage or not wanting that heavy foundation feeling. I personally like a bit more coverage and a little thicker.

The color I received was ay off for my skin tone, but that only helped illustrate how poorly it covered. This one was a miss for me.

Too runny. Little coverage.
Sampled

If you have flawless skin, this might be a nice wash of color but otherwise keep looking. It's the runniest foundation I've ever used and offers almost no coverage. For the price, you can find something better.

Oily
Sampled

I found this foundation to be very oily, even as it came out of the container. It matched well with my skin, but didn't last very long and I found myself having to blot much more often that I typically do.
