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 felt ok going on, but the sample color that was sent to me wasnt really the right shade for my skin. I can't give a fair review based on that, but I also didn't love it enough to try the other shades either.

My new summer foundation
SampledPurchased

I needed a slightly darker shade of foundation for my summer tan and this was perfect. Goes on like a BB cream, covers like a foundation. Barely needs a powder finish. I've been recommending it to all my friends!

Love this!

This was so smooth and flawless and wonderful! I had the sample for a while before I actually used it, and I'm so impressed! The product glided on perfectly, great coverage and blend-ability. I will definitely consider purchasing this foundation once I run out of my current brand.

Loved it!

Even though the shade was a bit darker than my skin it went on smooth and DIDN"T MAKE ME BREAK OUT! That is very rare. It gave my skin a velvety appearance and was barely detectable. I am ordering the full size in my shade right away!

Great foundation
SampledPurchased

Usually, I don't like foundation. I would do anything to avoid using it. But this one makes my skin look so fantastic, and is so light that I don't even feel like I'm wearing makeup, that I don't mind wearing it every day. I just wear this with a little blush and a little mascara, and I feel like I'm totally put together. And people always complement me on my skin when I wear this makeup, too.

Great for my skin!

This is the best foundation I have used. It balances color and goes on very light and smooth. I have a little redness in my skin and very light blemish scarring in places and this completely covers without looking like I am wearing foundation.

Melts into Your Skin

This is possibly the truest foundation match I have ever found...It's airy yet covers flaws. I love this!!!!!!!! It seemed to keep shine away too, which was an added bonus for me.

Not for me

This formula is too greasy and the color is not a good match. I do not often wear foundation, and I found this is not the right once-in-a-while foundation for me.

I really like this foundation. It goes on really smooth and is not heavy feeling on my face. It blends in really nice.
