Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

I have highly sensitive,very dry skin (that why I shop PC only). I hoped this would be like the old resist foundation, but my very dry skin jut looked flaky and felt tight after applying. PC Customer service is the best! The rep was so helpful when I inquired about the issue. They refunded me and as always where kind and helpful! I love PC products, and they are all I use and have used for many years. I have used Beautipedia since and found another foundation to use for now while I patiently wait on the next foundation Paula brings to the table.

    Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

    This is the best foundation now for me. I use PC products for 10 years and decided to write my review first time as do not agree with negative reviews. As it was discontinued Moisture Boost SPF30 (hope they bring it back soon!) and other PC daytime creams are not so suitable for my normal/slightly dry skin, I am using now Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer SPF30. May be this cream is perfect couple with PC Serum Foundation, but without any primer, I apply this foundation with Chanel foundation brush without any problems. It glides like butter and leave so nice satin smooth healthy finish! I even do not want to apply powder over it as my skin looks so young (I'am 40) and fresh! Within the whole day my face looks so beautiful and foundation does not oxidized and is perfect as it has been just applyed. May be it is helpful, my morning skincare now is cleanser - skin balancing, toner - Resist Asvanced Replenishing, 2% BHA Liquid, Resist Super Antioxidant Serum, cream with SPF, in the evening I use other PC products including almost all boosters, Retinol 1%, Resist Retinol serum, etc.
    I use shade 2 and I am MAC NC15. The color is yellow for the first sight, but when it is applyed on to the skin it becomes very natural and neutral. Please do not disconrinue this foundation! It is perfect!

    Shipment was perfect as usual to my forwarding Company.

      Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

      I hate foundation for the most part, but I really like this one. It's a true foundation, with a lighter feel and matte finish. Don't expect it to feel and look like the moisturizer with tint, because it's definitely a true foundation. I had switched to using powder foundations because I did liked liquid ones so much, but this one is a keeper for me for those days I need more coverage.

          Please bring back the Barely There Sheer Matte Tint. This foundation is too heavy for me. The Barely There Sheer Matte Tint is perfect - light but sufficient coverage, sunscreen, moisturising, etc. Now the only choice Paula Choice's has is this RESIST foundation is way too heavy. Hope there Paula Choice will bring back the Barely There Sheer Matte Tint soon.

          I bought this a long time ago and hated it. Ended up throwing it out. The color was off, it didn't apply easily, and the finish was terrible. I've loved and am still using the remnants of my supply of All Bases Covered foundation. I now only use it for special occasions but I'm running out. I've been searching for a replacement for some time now and have yet to find a similar holy grail. Like most other reviewers I fail to understand why Paula's Choice dis-continued her highly rated foundations/tints. I appreciate your skin care products but the company has enough of those offerings. Raise the price if you must, but PLEASE, PLEASE bring back All Bases Covered sooner rather than later.

              Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

              I could not get this foundation to look good on my skin despite multiple tries with different brushes, sponges, and my fingers, and despite multiple tries with various primers and SPF moisturizers underneath, including those from Paula's Choice. It emphasized dry areas that were otherwise undetectable and didn't absorb into with my skin. It was patchy looking. Frankly, it was the worst foundation I have ever tried. And at that astonishing price point, too.

                I have used Paula's Choice foundations for years and was disappointed when they stopped selling my favorite product. When I first started using this product I was disappointed in the results. It felt heavy and mask like. Since then I've realized that I need to use a much smaller amount to get the results I want. I have a highly active lifestyle and this product lasts all day. My only complaints are that if I'm not careful with blending, it can emphasize large pores. I also wish that it had sunscreen.

                  I 100% love this foundation. I have a medium skin tone so I went with the level 5. I emailed PC first and they sent me a photo showing the swatches on someone's arm. That helped me choose the correct color. You HAVE to use a primer first. I use my regular Paula's choice skincare products and then I use a primer for large pores by Smashbox. I dab the foundation all over and quickly blend in with a large Tarte brand foundation brush. It's summer here in Texas and I'm extremely oily, I've had this foundation on all day and it still looks great. Very little oil showing through and no color oxidation (turn orange). I will definitely purchase this foundation again. I LOVE it!

                      I've used Barely There for 10+ years. Frustrated that it was discontinued and now this is my only choice?? I was hoping I would like it. I didn't. At all. It's too heavy and difficult to apply. Looked like a mask. I've been looking and trying new foundations in search of one that doesn't irritate my skin and blends well....still searching after four months. :( Not even wearing foundation right now. Please, Paula's Choice, bring it back!

                      I returned the product for a refund. In 16 years I've only sent back two products. This was one of them.

                          I had high hopes for this. I've used "All bases Covered" and it worked well - I was disappointed to not be able to buy it again. But I decided to give this one a try. I do love the pump dispenser but that's as far as it goes. I find this foundation difficult to blend into my skin; the slightest bit of dry skin is accentuated. I tried mixing a little moisturizer into it as another reviewer suggested but it still didn't work very well. And the colour seems so yellowish on my skin. Very disappointed in this product.
