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.

This is the most realistic foundation I have worn in a long time. Yes, it is thinner, but that is why it doesn't look fake on my skin. Since I have been using it, I notice I have less fine lines around my eyes and cheeks.

This foundation is really great and it looks natural. It is a little runny but it blends really well. Not sure if I would buy this product because I am more of a BB cream fan

nice transparent finish

I usually shy away from using foundation, but this product feels nice and light and the color blends with my skin surprisingly well! It doesn't feel heavy, but evens my skin just a nice light evening out.

Awesome!

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.

I love this foundation

I have had trouble with foundations in the past being too oily. I usually buy a tinted moisturizer because I don't like the feeling or the look of a full foundation. I like more of a natural look. This product was not greasy at all and gave just the right amount of coverage. I will definitely be buying this product.

Not for sensitive skin

I initially liked this when I first put it on, but after only one use my skin started to break out. Bummer because I really liked the light but good coverage consistency.

Good coverage

I liked this foundation, I thought it gave good coverage without being too heavy, this still let my freckles show through. the foundation feels creamy, easy to apply

not for me

A little bit goes a long way.
The sample isn't quite my color so I only tried a little. I prefer more of a light coverage, like a tinted moisturizer.

Just Ok

The product felt nice, but the color was too dark for my skin tone. It also seemed to wear off fairly quickly.

It's okay for a liquid

I usually only wear powder foundation because I have oily skin. This one is okay for a liquid, but not something i would buy.
