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.

Ok

Not bad, just not my favorite. One thing that probably didn't help is I didn't receive quite the right shade for my skin tone. I thought the coverage was good I just wasn't the biggest fan of how it blended into my skin.

Score

I am very happy with this foundation. It feels light going on but gives me really good coverage. It also blends easily.

Best foundation ever
Purchased

Love love love the lightweight texture that glides onto skin and still manages to provide the perfect level of coverage. It looks like skin, but better.

might be for younger skin

I like a light coverage but this was too sheer for me. Funny smell and heavy texture when you first apply.

Great coverage

I don't use foundation that often, but I'm so glad that I tried this! With this, a little goes a long way. It is so light, compared to other foundations, that you don't feel a heaviness or "caked" on feel on your face. Highly recommend for a natural, smooth look.

Special A

WOW-WOW-WOW! This foundation is like no other I've ever tried! Not kidding. It's terrific. Unfortunately, I received a shade that I can only wear when I'm tan. Otherwise, I'd use this every day. I'll have to try two shades to find which tone is right for me... but honestly, I can't imagine using anything else again! This is Special, A ;-)

Not enough coverage for me :-(

I like heavy foundation and this was too light. I didn't feel like I was wearing anything. I also like my foundation to contain sun protection so this one is not for me.

Great coverage!

I put off trying this for months but have fallen in love with it! It only takes a few drops to cover my whole face and its so light and smooth!!! Love this!
