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.

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.

Liked it and may order it

I really liked this product. I thought the coverage was perfect and looked great on my skin. When I run out of my current foundation, i will order this to give it longer try.

Good quality foundation

This foundation does exactly what it says- gives a nice, natural look. Not overly dewy, matte, or cakey. It simply blends in with the skin nicely to give a skin-like look. A good everyday foundation.

Blends well

This foundation was a sample in my monthly box. I have used it a couple of times and while I feel the color blends well with my skin, I don't really like the consistency. I prefer a thicker liquid foundation to work with.

Liked it

Really liked this product. Didn't leave my skin feeling greasy like a lot of foundations do. The only thing that would stop me from buying the product is the price.

Break outs

This formula just wasn't good for my skin. Perhaps it would work for some skin types, just not mine though.

Reality Indeed

The sample is small, but enough to know I like it. I am very fair, but the skin tone 3 was a perfect match. Even at my over 40 age, I break out often. This product did not make me break out at all.
