The idea that one foundation can be suitable for all skin tones is almost as far-fetched as Oprah and Gisele being able to wear the same pants. However, in the case of Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals, the No Foundation Foundation is proving that one foundation can indeed be worn by different complexions. So what is this miracle make up? It’s an advanced anti-aging translucent foundation that is unlike any thing you’ve ever tried before. Dr. Perricone created this unique product to keep skin looking dewy and flawless all day long. The No Foundation Foundation is a multi-purpose product that provides natural translucent coverage, corrects skin undertones, instantly smooths out fine lines and boosts skin’s natural moisture throughout the day, all the while delivering antioxidant benefits.
Dr. Perricone is dermatologist to some of the most famous faces in the world and their special needs often are the inspiration for the new products he creates. It was only when more than one celebrity make-up artist asked for a foundation that would let the skin’s natural radiance and beauty shine through that No Foundation Foundation was born. Created to keep skin looking dewy and flawless, this unique formula delivers many benefits of a traditional foundation without the heavy matte finish, which as any woman knows only emphasizes the tiniest of imperfections. It feels light as a feather and slathers on skin smoothly-like a tinted moisturizer would. It does have a slight medicinal smell at first, but doesn’t last long. But, I haven’t told you the best part about this foundation. It only comes in one shade. Yes, you read that right I did say ONE shade, but this one shade really does work on multiple skin tones! I’m not kidding. Several women with different skin tones in my office tried it and it blended well on everyone!
How does it work?
This lightweight defensive solution is formulated with antioxidants, non-chemical sunscreen protection (SPF-30) and specially-treated pigments, fused with light-diffusing mica. These key ingredients all work together to create an absolutely flawless finish:
Alpha Lipoic Acid (Patented)
* Provides antioxidant protection from skin damaging free radicals
* Reduces wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, puffiness and discoloration
* Smooths skin texture
* Evens skin tone and imperfections
* Tightens and lifts skin
* Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide
These two ingredients offer the non-chemical, SPF 30 broad spectrum UV protection. Unlike chemical sun protectants, which get absorbed into the skin, these non-chemical ingredients sit on top of skin acting as a barrier against sun rays and actually deflect the rays away from your skin. How fabulous is that?
In My Opinion
This is hands down the most FANTASTIC foundation EVER. And this is coming from someone who has tried just about every foundation out there. I have seriously dry skin but when I wear this foundation my face never looks dry and flaky; just dewy and soft.You only need a tiny bit! One pump is the perfect amount to apply over your entire face.If you use too much, it will not blend as well and you may be unhappy with the results. Less is more with this product and it really does perform quite well. And much like Dr. Perricone I recommend that you apply No Foundation Foundation on top of other treatments and/or moisturizers, in gentle, circular motions. At first, it looks a little shiny when applied but after a few minutes and a dusting of translucent powder the finish is flawless and it looks and feels fresh all day long. With No touch ups!!!!!! Can you believe that! This is a make up bag keeper. Try it ……. you won’t regret it I promise. I’m already worried that they’ll stop making it so I’m planning to stock up!
Currently No Foundation Foundation is sold exclusively at Sephora or online at perriconemd.com. A 1 fluid ounce bottle of No Foundation Foundation is $50 which may seem a little pricey for make up but it’s well worth it and the bottle will last you for at least 6 months to a year with daily use.
So if you’re tired of the way ordinary foundations leave your face looking and feeling like a Kabuki mask rather than like skin. Why not try something new? Put your best face forward and let your natural radiance shine through with Dr. Perricone’s No Foundation Foundation.
