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.

Too liquidy

I was somewhat disappointed in this product. It is far too liquidy for my test. It just does not seem to give to much coverage because of that. It is great I supposed if you want it to look/feel like you're not wearing foundation, but I don't really know what the point of that is. Its just not for me.

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!

Eh

Not terrible, but it seemed a little heavy, the coverage wasn't great and my skin was slick within an hour.

Amazing coverage

Amazing coverage that was light, not heavy and perfectly evened out my skin tone. The color was perfect also, eliminating the areas of redness I seem to have lately. Felt like it took at least 10 years off my skin!

Didn't hate...didn't love

This foundation is a little too sheer, and looked a little too natural (was it even there?). Does feel almost silky. I would not purchase a full size product.

Really nice feel

I enjoyed trying this product. It has a nice feel to it and moderate coverage. There's quite a bit in the small bottle as well. A little goes a long way.

Great!!

Went on light and simple. Didn't feel think and uneven. I really like this product. I am considering buying the full size product. Really liked the way it feels on my face.

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.

love it

I love the lightweight feel of the product on my skin. it doesn't look like it's caked on which is really nice.
