Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Fair

It's not every day that I come across a foundation that makes me rethink the kind of cover I need. Perricone MD created the No Foundation Foundation Fair to let your natural beauty shine through but disguising the flaws you want hidden. Once only available in a darker shade, the introduction of fair means us porcelain skinned beauties can achieve glowing, smooth and natural skin too.

On, Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Fair appears dewy and light, covering any immediate areas I have issues with but leaving my freckles to show. Paired with a little highlighter, a touch of bronzer and a pinch of blush, my face hasn't looked this fresh in a long time. It's nice to let the skin breath; the added bonus of SPF 30 (naturally occurring with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide), intense moisture and skin tone correcting, it leans more toward tinted moisturiser territory but acts like the foundation you need. If you have issues with just how low the coverage is, it is a buildable foundation. I tend to let it settle for a little and do other parts of my makeup and then go back to it if I feel I do need to layer it up.

The sciencey bit? There's Alpha Lipoic Acid in there to smooth skin texture, even the skin tone and reduce wrinkles. Being on the wrong side of my mid-20s I've started to pay attention to keeping my skin as youthful as possible! I was even more impressed to see that the DMAE helps firm, lift and contour so you're on to a winner whatever your age.

Having tried Perricone MD supplements before, I didn't know what to expect from their makeup range but knew that quality was going to be a certainty. I've been more than impressed with this little vial of foundation, and it has taken pride of place on my vanity dresser.

Have you tried anything by Perricone MD?

  1. This sounds amazing, unlike anything else I own already. It's a bit on the pricey side but think I'll give it a try in summer when I'm looking for a lighter base. Great review!

    1. I tend to layer this up with a good coverage concealer on days when I'm not feeling so confident. It's nice to let the skin show through.

    1. It is on the higher scale of the foundation spectrum, but a bottle that will last a great deal longer as it's more of a summer product.

  3. wrong side of 20! Lol what are you like. I prefer to let my skin breathe a lot more so lighter is always better for me. I've never tried the Perricone MD products and with a lot of things I tend to always have to mix to get my correct shading. I like that it acts as of course a skincare products as well as a beauty product.

    1. They do a darker shade of this I know, as this is the one they brought out because there were so many fair skinned ladies. I reckon you'd love it Laa!

    1. Always good to try and let the skin breathe if you've got a flare up, so this is perfect for that. A dab of concealer in a few places and it won't even look like you're wearing any makeup!

  6. Ahh I have this too, it's so natural isn't it? It's not moisturising enough for my lizard face so I always have to put a moisturiser on first.

    1. I find that it sits a little better with a good moisturise beforehand, so I'm with you on that one!

  7. It's been so long since I've been on your blog!
    Your posts are always lovely though anyway.

    I have acne prone skin, so even if I were to try this..

    1. Thanks lovely! I reckon, paired with a good concealer, you'd find that this is just what your skin needs to breathe.
