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

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

Great

I enjoyed my sample and the color matched my skin tone. I had no issues with it being oily. Wish it contained sunscreen.

Oily and not for me
Purchased

Although I did love the application and how creamy this foundation was, the sheen after a little wear is not nice.

nice texture

I like the texture of this product. The color was a little dark for my skin tone but I was able to get a good idea of how the foundation works. I don't wear a lot of liquid foundation but if I did I think I would consider this one as a good option.

average for foundation

I got lucky my sample was a shade that matched my skin tone. It was a decent foundation, not too heavy. I didn't like that it doesn't have an SPF and it was a bit shiny after a few hours. Not perfect for my skin or preferences but not a bad product either.

Perfect

I don't know how, but you managed to send just the perfect shade. I love this product and plan on buying the full size right away!

Too Oily

This product was light and felt great going on, but got too oily and shiny on my face after just a couple of hours.

Pricey

Love the product but pricey! I have an olive skin tone so I was surprised that the color I recieved in my box actually matched my skin quite well.
