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.

Alison Raffaele Reality Base Foundation

The size of this was a bit small I used it up in two uses so i was not able to tell if I really liked it. It is not full coverage so I think it would be great to wear no those days I just wanted light makeup. It felt and cover like a BB cream to me and i prefer the BB cream I use from Maybelline.

nice

This was anice smooth makeup. A little heavier than I usually use but not cakey. If I needed more coverage for my skin this would be my choice.

Smells funky!

I really like this foundation, except that it smells kind of weird. It's almost like a mildew smell to me. To be fair, the smell dissipates upon application.

I also feel that the shade I purchased is a little too light for me, but the next shade up (which I'd received as a sample) was too dark. However, it does provide a nice level of coverage without feeling greasy looking too heavy. I have middle aged skin that is starting to get a little blotchy, but I also still have oily skin (and wrinkles. Good one, universe!). I'd probably buy it again except that I'm between shades and it smells a little bit like a dirty towel. (really, can't that be fixed????)

Horrible

I was sent this foundation in a shade that was one of the darkest and I am very fair, so from the get-go it wasn't promising. I still tried it to see if I liked how it felt on my skin and I was not happy with it. It did not seem to provide a medium coverage nor did it feel weightless. I will stick with my current foundation.

I like it!

I have very sensitive facial skin and this product does not irritate it and feels light enough to be able to go all day without feeling like it's getting heavy. I also notice that it gives my skin a slight "glow".

Good coverage

I got this as a free sample - unfortunately the color they sent me was maybe one shade too dark, but otherwise I really liked this foundation. Will consider buying a full sized version in the future :)

Okay

This was an okay product, I don't feel like I got much use out of it because the sample size was really small and my bottle kept leaking. I also felt it gave my skin an orange appearance which isn't great on my fair skin .

Very natural

An effective, light coverage that I actually pat on to mask small blemishes (I don't normally wear foundation). The shade blends right in with my skin color.
