Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

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.

    Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

    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.

          Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

          Terrible, watery, off-colour and no sun protection. Where's Barely There???????? Why would you discontinue a product that was so successful. Dropping Barely There has stopped me from buying PC products. If you can make a blunder like that, then I feel concerned about everything else. I thought this might replace Barely There, but no SPF, bought light (like Barely There) it was white and I could see white lines all over my face. If the skin got wet, running white lines. Light was perfect in Barely There and I phoned first to check on the colour. Still in my drawer because I don't know anyone with white skin! Thanks for crediting my account, but may as well pitch it. You should re-do Barely There, add it to one of your skin care lines but don't mess with the formula. I Am still using what I have left and it's still perfect. Can't find anything like it. Very disappointed in Paula's Choice over this discontinued and perfect Barely There in tinted SPF creme. At last I've had my say and feel better for it!

            Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

            I have used Paula's foundations for 10+ years and have been so happy, until now. The application is not smooth and the product does not blend well. It amplifies imperfections instead of masking them; it settles into lines and pores, and adheres to fine hairs. I also dislike that the product does not include sunscreen, because it adds an extra step to my routine and because there are very few of Paula's sunscreens that work for me, because my skin reacts poorly to Avobenzone.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I feel like the rollout of the new product was not ideal. There was no clear indication of how the new colors related to the old colors in the discontinued product, and no sample sizes for swatching. Luckily, I was able to reach out to customer service and they gave me a really rapid response with great advice and confidence in ordering the right color for me based on my previous purchases. Sadly, that doesn't outweigh my disappointment in the product overall and I won't be purchasing again.

              This product does not have enough coverage for older skin. Perhaps it would work for younger people but by categorizing it as "Resist" I expect it to be specifically for the older woman.

                Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

                I was hesitant to try to replace my Barely There makeup with this....and I will say it's a different kind of coverage from the BT, but in the end, I like the Resist Serum Foundation better. I chose shade #4. In the BT I wore #3. Shade #4 was just a tad too light so I then got the shade #5. That is perfect unless I get quite tan on my face which i don't expect to do. The makeup just melds into my skin and is so light and comfortable. The coverage is light to medium and can be built up slightly. I tried applying with my fingers but prefer a blender sponge. I cover one area at a time as it dries quickly. I use this over SPF 50 moisturizer and it leaves no dry patches. Does not clump or cake at all. It's kind of a satin matte finish. It lasted all thru the day without getting greasy. Creme and powder blush both go on easily on top of this makeup. So overall, I am pleasantly amazed with this makeup. If you want a "no-makeup" look, have fairly clear skin and don't need full coverage, I say give it a try. Paula, please don't discontinue this!

                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!

                    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.
