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.

Good Product

I liked this product a lot. There was great coverage and it didn't irritate my skin. I usually use a powder foundation, but I really like how this liquid formula looked.

Good coverage

I enjoyed this foundation. I don't normally wear much makeup, but this went on smoothly and evened out my skin tone without feeling heavy. It was also not too oily either.

Smooth - Not Oily

I really liked the Alison Raffaele foundation. It didn't leave my skin greasy or oily. I would highly recommend it, it's worth the cost and leaves skin looking amazing.

Light coverage

This product was okay. It was silky smooth on my skin. It didn't clog my pores and was blended really well. I didn't get as much coverage as I wanted from it. It was a really thin formula and I felt like I had to use a ton for it to actually even my skin tone out.

Meh

Just average; another sample I threw in my purse. Did not notice any benefit from the antioxidants either. Maybe after continued use?

Love it!
Purchased

I had a sample of this years ago and I loved it, but it was out of my price range at the time, so I forgot about it. As soon as I received it in my box I bought it. I love the way it feels and the coverage is perfect for me! Very happy!

Makeup like this is why I use Birchbox!

Received a sample of this in my monthly box and Wow! I've used the same brand of foundation since I was in high school and because I pay a decent amount for it (it comes from a department store…faaaancy) I thought it was pretty high quality. Never going back to that one. This stuff is like a dream! It looks so natural and totally evens out my skin tone. I was face timing with my mom while wearing it and she kept going on about how great and glowing my skin looked. Seriously fantastic product. So excited to have been introduced to it!

meh

Not really the biggest fan of this one. I felt it was a little oily on my skin, and that you could see I was obviously wearing makeup. At the same time, it was a little too sheer on the places I wanted to cover.

Amazing Foundation!

The most natural foundation I have ever used. My sample matched my skin tone absolutely perfectly. You could not tell I was wearing make up but it made my imperfections much much less noticeable. Loved it and will purchase it!

Sample too small to evaluate

When trying a foundation I like to have enough to cover my face and neck and to wear it all day to evaluate how it looks and wears throughout the day. Unfortunately this sample was so small I couldn't evaluate it properly
