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.

Special A

WOW-WOW-WOW! This foundation is like no other I've ever tried! Not kidding. It's terrific. Unfortunately, I received a shade that I can only wear when I'm tan. Otherwise, I'd use this every day. I'll have to try two shades to find which tone is right for me... but honestly, I can't imagine using anything else again! This is Special, A ;-)

Perfect complexion
Purchased

So happy my mom got this in her Birchbox and didn't like it because she gave it to me and I have now found my go to foundation. It leaves a flawless light finish and is so soft and smooth to put on.

Light Liquid Foundation Great for Combination Skin

I really enjoyed using this foundation, I have oily skin and when I use most liquid foundation products they end up making my face feel greasy. This product is very light and blends well with your skin for a great match. The only thing I did not like about it is it was too sheer to use as a concealer like I usually do with other foundations, but, minor details!

Surprisingly LOVED this!

I was a little hesitant on this product as I am not one to typically spend more than $15 on a makeup product but this is my new favorite foundation!!! For the occasional pimple I get, this stuff covered it up COMPLETELY without making it look heavy. Love it!

Lovely

I'm buying this- light, powdery finish, nice coverage, not oily. I am now, in middle age, moving toward foundation, and this one is perfect.

Light, good coverage
Purchased

I love how light this is, and has good coverage. My shade matches my skin tone pretty much perfectly. I also like the slim bottle, stores easily with my other products.

great foundation

When I first tried this sample I thought it was too yellowey for my skin, and I put it in my drawer of samples that I never use. However, I brought it out again a few months later and realized it was actually perfect for me. It calmed down my redness and did not feel oily at all. I love this foundation.

Smooth - Not Oily

I really liked the Alison Raffaele foundation. It didn't leave my skin greasy or oily. I would highly recommend it, it's worth the cost and leaves skin looking amazing.
