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.

Great Texture and Coverage!

I am always doubtful on new foundation since I love my Chanel base but this one was very competitive going on smooth and covering up redness which is my problem. A new fave.

I really loved the coverage of this foundation while also having a lightweight feel to it - almost like a tinted moisturizer but stronger.

I don't use foundation because I think it's all too thick, cakey, and unnatural looking. This was the exact opposite. While people who use a lot of foundation will probably find it ineffective, I loved the light texture, the fast-drying powdery feel, and the way I couldn't even see it after it was on! Great!

Got this as a sample in my birchbox. Loved it so much that I bought the full-sized product. Great coverage without the weighty feel of most foundations, which is why I stopped using them until I recently found this one. I was hoping the full size product would be a little bigger, though.

Great Quality

Since my skin has red scars because of my acne problems, I need a product with a higher coverage. But since it is oil-free - it is perfect for oily scars!

Great coverage, absolutely love this product. Not too heavy on the face as well. Perfect match for my skin tone luckily.

My new go-to foundation!
Sampled

I really love this foundation. For the past year or so, I have been using BB and CC creams instead of foundation because this seemed better for my oily, acne prone skin. This foundation feels more lightweight than anything I've used before and my skin feels cleaner throughout the day. I didn't even wait until finishing the small sample to order the full-size!

Amazing foundation
Sampled

I absolutely loved this foundation, which was surprising to me because I'm usually pretty picky about them! It blended so perfectly into my skin and never felt heavy or looked cakey. Fabulous!

Fabulous foundation

I never wear foundation -- it's normally way too heavy and dries out my skin. This is the perfect consistency! It feels very light and goes on so smoothly but at the same time provides the right amount of coverage. I used to wear a tinted moisturizer but I've switched over to this product for daily wear.
