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.

Natural glow

I don't like anything too heavy on my face, so this sheer coverage was perfect. Just a natural glow :)

No Thanks

I have very pale skin, and even the lightest shade of this product was way too dark for me. I'll pass on this product.

Nice foundation

I liked this foundation. It went on smoothly and blended in well with my skin tone. Feels light, but covers well.

Watery

I think this would be a great foundation for dry skin, but not oily. I have pretty oily/combination skin, and by the third hour I was already getting pretty oily with this. It applied really smoothly and looked really nice in the beginning , but my oils quickly shined through.

Not a fan

This foundation was OK. It was a little too think for me, but I don't have bad skin and prefer a lighter coverage. I think it would work great for someone with a different skin type and is still worth trying out.

A little too fancy for me...

Not a huge fan of this product - it felt like putting foundation on twice. I prefer my primers to be clear or translucent, and not foundation colored. Just my two cents!

Great foundation

This foundation is the bomb! Very sheer and smooth, but yet gives good coverage. It looks very natural and stays on well. I really like this product!

Wasn't really impressed

Too small of a sample, totally wrong color, thin texture....overall just not a good pick for me. Got this one wrong, Birchbox.

Nice and light

I don't usually wear foundation, but this one wasn't cakey and matched my skin tone pretty well. I even got complements on my skin!
