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.

Great light foundation - just lacks SPF

This foundation goes on light and smooth to a beautiful finish. It feels amazing on my skin but the only bummer is that it doesn't have any sun protection in it. This is definitely a light weight foundation - most similar to a BB cream or tinted moisturizer - and it looks beautiful on.

Fab coverage - long lasting!
Purchased

Great product - took me a few tries to realize that I was getting more compliments on my skin, complexion, and glow when I was wearing this. Love it. Not only does the product last a while (still working on my sample), but it lasts all day on the skin.

Great!!!
Purchased

I received this product as a sample in my birchbox. I tried it and wasn't hot on it at first but the more I wore it and put it on the more I fell in love with it. I took the top off and scooped the last remains out with a q-tip! It's probably one of the best foundations I've tried in a long time. I love how light it is and and how it goes on, not creamy or oily. I like that a lot. The reason I didn't like it at first was because it felt dry going on, but after using it that is the reason I fell in love with it!! So...now I'm buying the full size.

closet shade match ever

This I thought was a little too light of coverage until I used it over a cc cream. This is the only brand that is the closest to my skin shade . I usually have to mix a few shades to get it it somewhat right. But this is right out of the bottle matching. I like that you can build coverage too. Love it.

Oily

I have oily skin, this product went on nice, smooth with decent coverage. I set it with a light powder and urban decay setting spray (de-slick) but didn't last more than 4 hours..

Not great

This product was way too orange for my complexion. It was pretty streaky too. Not great.

Great

This products is nice to have for travel. I use other foundations, but when I want to change it up or try something new, this is great!
