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.

Meh

This was ok. I got a sample in my birch box. I still prefer many brands to this. The coverage wasn't great and it almost seemed to thin of liquid.

Light, nice coverage. Doesn't last all day.

I liked the coverage that this foundation provided, it gave a nice light finish. I did find that the foundation didn't last for more than 6 hours.

not enough coverage

I was excited to try this, however, upon the first application, this foundation had very little coverage and made my face really greasy. It also didn't last throughout the day and I had to keep reapplying powder. I definitely wouldn't purchase this product if you have oily skin.

Liked the sample, wish I hadn't purchased.

I really liked this when I received a sample, but not so much after I purchased it. It feels really watery and is hard to come out of the pump, and the color seems really light.

Light Liquid Foundation Great for Combination Skin

I really enjoyed using this foundation, I have oily skin and when I use most liquid foundation products they end up making my face feel greasy. This product is very light and blends well with your skin for a great match. The only thing I did not like about it is it was too sheer to use as a concealer like I usually do with other foundations, but, minor details!

Surprisingly LOVED this!

I was a little hesitant on this product as I am not one to typically spend more than $15 on a makeup product but this is my new favorite foundation!!! For the occasional pimple I get, this stuff covered it up COMPLETELY without making it look heavy. Love it!

Lovely

I'm buying this- light, powdery finish, nice coverage, not oily. I am now, in middle age, moving toward foundation, and this one is perfect.

Light, good coverage

I love how light this is, and has good coverage. My shade matches my skin tone pretty much perfectly. I also like the slim bottle, stores easily with my other products.

Doesn't stick around

Coverage nice but does not last even until noon on my oily skin, also color off for me but that is not necessary fault of product, just not a fit for me.

great foundation

When I first tried this sample I thought it was too yellowey for my skin, and I put it in my drawer of samples that I never use. However, I brought it out again a few months later and realized it was actually perfect for me. It calmed down my redness and did not feel oily at all. I love this foundation.
