All Bases Covered Foundation SPF 25 is a creamy liquid foundation with a pure titanium dioxide–based sunscreen for broad-spectrum protection. It has a soft matte finish and offers light to medium coverage, with excellent blendability in neutral shades for light to medium/tan skin tones. (At this time, there are no shades for darker skin tones.)

Once blended, you'll get a refined complexion that looks smooth and even, and has a subtle, healthy glow. All Bases Covered Foundation is recommended for normal to dry skin. The fragrance-free formula is also suitable for sensitive skin, including those struggling with rosacea.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, sagging, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down (unlike jar packaging, which compromises what might otherwise be an effective formula). The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

From cleansers to broad-spectrum sunscreens to anti-aging serums to specialized treatments, Paula's Choice Skincare has you covered from head to toe with innovative, state-of-the-art products. The brand also offers professional-quality makeup products including concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick, and more. (Paula started out as a makeup artist so she definitely knows her way around a face!)

Paula's Choice Skincare does not test on animals and also takes an environmentally friendly approach by featuring minimalist, recyclable packaging. Another plus—the Customer Service team is among the best in the industry, offering a "100% satisfaction or your money back" guarantee.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

    Great travel option
    • On a daily basis, I use something else so I am not trapped by ordering. I tend to save this one for my long-outdoor days because of the high SPF. Just took my first carry-on flight in a while are was glad to have a plastic bottle for carryon. Long lasting foundation with a light to medium coverage. Will always have some around.

    Surprisingly great
    • After using accutane for my cystic acne I needed a gentle foundation that did not look oily but had some moisture. This fits the bill perfect. I use "nude". It gives me just the right amount of coverage and blends perfectly. I use Paula's Choice pressed powder and I am good to go. The combination wears all day with no touch up. Before this I used Best Face Forward SPF 25 and it was equally amazing:)

    Needs a Good Primer Underneath
    • I have dry skin, but when I first used this a year ago, I found it that it made my skin look oily as the day progressed. I started using it again with L'Oreal's Revitalift Miracle Blur primer and it now wears beautifully! It covers beautifully without looking heavy and the Miracle Blur keeps the satin finish all day - no more oiliness.
