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.

I needed skintone #1 - but got #2.

The feel was ok, but with it being the wrong color, it didn't look good on me.
I'd really like to get some mineral based makeup base soon. I have found a lot of the liquid samples I've gotten are the wrong shade for me.
Thanks for letting me try it, but it was hard to really enjoy it since it was the wrong shade.

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!
Purchased

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 .
