      Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

      A disappointing product. Its like applying chalky acrylic paint to face that doesn't blend, even when using foundation sponges/pads. I previously used Barely There's Level 2 ( my normal tint) and All Bases Covered. This product's Level 2 has a yellow tint as if its for "warm skin tones" for fair/light skin. I'm light-medium. It leaves tiny spots in pores and blending doesn't help...never experienced anything like this. Until Barely There comes back , I'll be using Jane Iredales or Bobby Brown foundation. This product is going in trash.

        Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

        It took a few tries on color (2, 4 and 5), but now that I'm using "5," I am just in love with this foundation! (I previously used Sand in All Bases Covered, just for reference.) I will say that you should really go "light" on this -- just two small "pumps" really covers my whole face, and I have a lot of redness in my cheeks. I follow up with the Resist Flawless Finish Powder in Light/Medium, which I also love, and I'm pretty good to go all day! I'm sorry that others aren't having a good experience, but now that I have the right color, I think this foundation is just perfect.

          The first couple of times that I used this foundation I, too, experienced settling in pores and lines. BUT then I learned to apply very little at a time and blot (I just use my fingers) and the finish is soft and wonderful. Very very natural looking.

            Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

            I truly miss the All Bases Covered foundation and the Barely There tinted moisturizer Paula's use to sell. I need a creamy foundation that goes on like lotion so that my face appears young, moist, and glowing! I use to get tons of compliments on my face with the other foundations. With this new foundation it is as thin as water! It dries very quickly so it's hard to smooth on the face evenly. It is also very matte finished so you can readily see the foundation on the skin. I am not a big fan of these changes.

                Very disappointed in this product. I read reviews and agree with a reviewer from Canada that it does not cover, leaves lines on the skin where the makeup sort of clumps and the color was too light so it was a waste of money as I did not get a refund (was extremely busy at the time it came; have not had time to call about the product). I am still using my Barely There and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. I am so disappointed that PC would discontinue it. I was a regular customer, but now every product I loved has disappeared from PC. I hope that enough people have contacted PC and that Barely There foundation will return SOON!!!

                  I have to admit.....I was very hesitant to try this foundation because of all the negative reviews.
                  I finally decided that some of these harsh reviews had to be exaggerated. I've been wearing this
                  foundation for the last four days and I think it's wonderful. I apply this with a damp beauty blender
                  and it goes on so smooth and my skin looks great. The coverage is medium and my fine lines and
                  pores are not emphasized. I am 53 with light skin tone (NC20) and I wear level #2 and my skin type
                  is combination. I have ordered the new primer to use under this foundation and I can't wait to try it.

                    I've been a fan and customer of Paula's Choice since 1990. I love her products and will continue to use them, but I'm very frustrated with this new RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation. I've been trying to work with it for 2 months now, even emailing the helpline for assistance. Despite using the primer, sponges, brushes and more, this product does not go on smooth, blend well, or look good on my skin. It draws attention to imperfections instead of providing good coverage. The matte, powdery finish settles into lines and pores, creating a splotchy appearance. The finish looks unnatural. Because I have older skin (age 52,) I had high hopes when I saw it was a "Resist" line. It's also disappointing that it does not include sunscreen. Hoping to see the previous foundation lines return.

                    This foundation covers my 70+ year old skin beautifully. The inherent fine line redness disappears completely, while the foundation feels very light. It is best applied with a makeup brush for even coverage and a little goes a long way. My only complaint is the small number of shades. I actually keep a small disc on my makeup counter and use one drop of two different shades to get the tone I need.

                      Make-up is very dry and hard to apply. Highlights and sinks into the lines around my eyes rather than hiding them. I bought this to replace the no longer sold Barely There product, but doesn't even begin to compare. Unfortunately, I bought this a while ago and have just started using it so I am past the return date, but thought I would add to the warnings about this product. Not worth the money. Please bring back the Barely There line.

                        I am very happy that I tried this makeup. I goes on very smoothly over Paula's mineral sunscreen. I gives medium coverage and does not irritate my very sensitive skin. It tends to look very shiny after being applied but I use Paula's powder and it looks good all day.
