Part of an equation!
My skin got super scary dry this winter, so I became VERY limited in the foundation/cover up I could use... This was originally not my first choice, but I found it was the only thing I could use without my face looking like cracked clay!
So, here's the deal - it's expensive, and looks weird and orange'y when you first put it on. I agree with the earlier review that it doesn't offer very much coverage, and your skin has to be in pretty decent shape (I have some unevenness, but haven't had to tackle any major breakouts since I've started using this...)
HOWEVER - I've built a secret formula around it that works wonderfully for me! I mix one pump of the Perricone, a tiny bit of the Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer, and a tiny bit of the Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer. I feel with this mix, my skin just looks very clear with a tiny glow from the Illuminizer.
No Foundation Foundation is not Foundation
First of all Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation is not foundation. It's sheer than tinted moisturizer. basically no coverage, so you need to have the perfect skin to get benefit of using this foundation(I have acne scars and freckles so I need some coverage to correct my skin tone) . This foundation comes one shade, it suppose to blend like your skin color. Because this foundation have no coverage i added some other foundation, the color totally changed. Either really light or really dark depends on color of foundation i add on it brings on the more of color. All the benefits of this foundation sounds really good but its not works for me and i would not recommend this small jar of $50 no foundation foundation to people my age.
This shade is slightly dark for my complexion, but it's perfect when I blend it over a sunscreen that leaves a white cast on my skin (like physical sunblocks that I like to use because they're less irritating to my sensitive skin). The only problem is that it does tend to get greasy when layered over the sunscreen, so I have to use blotting papers in the T-zone after I first apply it, but then I'm good to go for the rest of the day.
