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!!!
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!

Would Try Again

I got a sample of this product and while the color wasn't quite right, I did like the amount of coverage and the feel of it on my skin. It didn't feel heavy, and didn't look like I had foundation on (aside from the color looking a little off). I would definately like to try it again in another color, and I think if I found one that worked for me I would happily add this product to my makeup bag.

Good Coverage

This foundation surprised me. It had good coverage but smells almost as if it's water based. Seems thin and goes into all my little skin imperfections.

Streaky and wrong shade

I applied this with a brush as I do with BB or CC creams. It came out streaky and never blended well. the shade was completely wrong for me, as is becoming a habit with BIrchBox.
