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 skintones
Sampled

i have used several BB creams over the past year and purchased/ switched to this after my sample. the coverage is sheer, but buildable. it is no less covering than a BB cream. i LOVED the skintone3, which was my ultimate reason for buying this. It is a yellow-based light skintone. something i have found hard to find. most universal BB colors are too pink or chalky for me. this blended well both on my forehead and my neck (i usually find a match for one or the other, i have used two different shades before just to match my jawline). for more coverage for breakouts, i bought the coordinating concealer. only complaint was it did nothing to minimize pores ( like a silicone loaded BB cream), so i use a pore minimizing primer.

Great foundation

Great blend for my skin tone and feels very light on my skin. I plan to purchase this full sized product in the future.

I love this product. It covered up my red cheeks and blended my blotchy areas very nicely. I would love to see the pressed powder that could accompany this product.

GREAT Coverage!

I used to use Clinique tinted moisturizer and was content until I tried Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation SPF 15. This works great b/c it give a natural glow-but after using Alison Raffaele's, I can't wait to buy it! Same natural look with a slight glow but better blend! It looks like I have nothing on! Definitely going to purchase

Perfect natural coverage
Sampled

I have never been a big foundation girl because I prefer a very natural look, but this foundation was one of the best I have tried. If I were to wear foundation daily, I think I would use this one. It is thin and a little goes a long way. Because of it's texture, it goes on very smooth and doesn't look or feel too heavy on the face. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a very natural look with their foundation.

Lightest foundation ever

I haven't worn foundation in years because it tends to be heavy and cakes up. I tried this and immediately loved it. Plus the color was perfect.

This was light as a feather to apply and was a perfect match to my skin tone. I love that it is build able as well.
