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.

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.

Not great!

I tried this foundation and it wasn't my color a little dark but after a few hours it oxidizes and it caused me to have an orange/yellow tint to my skin.

More than I bargained for

I was pretty surprised by this little sample. I like the texture, which was very liquid rather than creamy, but it was very sheer. I was worried that it would sort of slide off my face by the end of the day but I was pleasantly surprised--although I haven't seen how it holds up when it's warm out. Furthermore, the tiny little bottle that came in my box has kept going and going, so I think a full-size bottle would last a really long time.

Heavy

I thought this product was too heavy and didn't last well on my skin. I have combination skin and this was just too much.

I love this but . . .

I love this foundation but since it doesn't have suncreen I am going to have to pass on it. It goes on very silky and I love the feel and tone of it. But you just have to have an SPF of at least 16 and I am not willing to do a suncreen when there are so many great product that have it.

Super smooth finish

This foundation is so creamy, yet light. I thought it provided great coverage for my acne scarred skin. Also, I couldn't believe how well the sample matched my actual skin tone.

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.
