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.

I know some people wish this had more coverage, but I like that it's got a touch of sheerness and blends so easily. Plus, and I can't stress enough how amazing this is for me, Skintone 3 matches and brightens my skin SO WELL. It's got just the right shade of yellow without becoming orange or beige. It brings out the best parts of the yellow tone of my skin. For an Asian woman, I've never found any products in the U.S. which can do this, and I'm very pleased.

Good

I liked this product for its coverage and consistency! If you like heavy foundations this is not it. Very much enjoyed

Very smooth

Smooth describes it all. This product really evened out my skin tone and went on smoothly! I didn't have to do too much blending.

light

I don't like to wear make up because it feels heave but I love this one!! It feels light and it doesn't cake up.

love it. The coverage is flawless

I thought I loved my current product until I tried this one. The coverage it gives you is flawless. It also makes your skin look dewey. I love it.

Smooth... Feels nice all day.

The color matches my skin well. It goes on smoothly and that way all day. I have oily skin so by the end of the day my foundation can be streaky or clumpy, but this stuff stays in place and creates a nice smooth look all day.

I LOVE this foundation!!!

This is one of the best foundations I've ever tried! I usually use Nars or Makeup Forever. I actually prefer this brand now because of its beautiful sheer finish and perfect amount of coverage. It goes on soooo smooth and I can hardly feel it on my skin! I can even apply it with my fingers and still get a flawless look. It keeps my skin soft and hydrated all day long. I've gotten so many compliments on how great my skin looks. Even better, I can literally wear it all day long. I can go straight from work to going out without having to do any touch ups!

So much from a tiny bottle
Purchased

I almost laughed aloud when I picked up this sample from my box, boy was I wrong. This tiny sample lasted an entire week, and by the end I was sold on this foundation. It had a powdery feel rather than a heavy oil. By the end of the day my face still felt fresh.

great coverage, not to heavy

this is a really nice foundation. it goes on smoothly, has great coverage, but it's not too heavy. the little sample went a long way too! I'll definitely keep this foundation in mind for when my current one runs out!
