Follow with the rest of your makeup routine.

Just Can't Like This Product

      Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

      When I came to the site last time and discovered All Bases Covered was gone, I was so disappointed but hopeful about the only foundation Paula's Choice now offers. I've been using it for more than a month now and just can't like it. Forget looking younger...I look older. For me, this product feels heavier than ABC, is really hard to blend, and actually makes my pores look bigger; it accentuates, rather than covers, trouble spots and makes my face look dry, even with ample moisturizer.

      Over years, I've been thrilled with PC products, especially the only-foundation-I'll-ever-buy-again All Bases Covered (it was PERFECT). And I rarely submit product reviews of any kind. But I had to speak up. Paula's Choice, would you please consider bringing back All Bases Covered or something formulated like it? As another reviewer said, I'll be needing to go to the makeup counter for the first time in years. I have just a little ABC left and am saving it for special occasions. It's hard to imagine that, in the testing phase, this product consistently performed better than ABC. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

          Let me begin by saying, I don't think I've ever left a negative review about Paula's Choice products. I have to agree with other reviewers: don't know WHY previous foundations were discontinued! Best Face Forward and Barely There Matte Tint were perfection! They looked so natural, agreed with my skin and stayed on through the day.
          This new foundation doesn't look natural at all - looks like I'm wearing a mask. Also, seems to fade in patches when I use over the Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Only good thing I can say is that like all of Paula's products, doesn't irritate my very sensitive skin. Again, I implore Paula to bring back the old formulas.

            Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Matte:

            I am 50, Korean, light skin toned, with freckles and dark circles under my eyes. I have combination skin and my main concerns are clogged pores, enlarged pores, and discoloration. I use a PC RESIST exfoliator, serum, and moisturizer every night before bed (have been for maybe 8-10 years?). My makeup routine is minimal, and I like this foundation a lot. I've been using it everyday for almost a year, and I think it makes my face look more even toned and polished, but still natural. First I put RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid (SPF 50!) all over my face, and it acts nicely as a primer. Then I dispense slightly less than a complete pump of the Level 4 foundation and dot it all over. I use my fingertips to blend it in, and it does take some time, but I end up with thorough, NATURAL looking coverage. My freckles are still visible, but my under eye circles are nearly invisible, and the redness around the corners of my nose and the corners of my eyes is completely covered. Using a cushy, terry powder puff, I set it with loose, translucent setting powder where my face gets oily (also where my pores are big), which makes my pores disappear, and my makeup lasts all day. I've tried using this foundation without the Hydrating Fluid first, and I _don't_ get good results- too chalky looking.

            This is the worst makeup I have ever tried. I have used PC makeup for the past 17 years and LOVED them! Touted it to everyone I knew. PLEASE bring back the old makeup - "All Bases Covered" and "Barely There" - also I'm appalled you have only one choice. You are better than that!

                I couldn't easily put on face, much less feel or look natural. Like others, did try to mix with moisturizer, no help. I loved the previous product, used it for years. But, I can't say anything pro about this particular product.

                    Really, really liked my All Bases Covered Foundation (Normal*Dry) that I had in Sand color. Not thrilled that one product is now replaced with two products for same use. But, gave it a try. Replaced it with Level 4 + the base moisturizer stuff. Didn't mind the feel of the combo, but the color appeared darker on my skin and after second and third applications, red bumps started to pop up. Stopped using it, red bumps went away. A week later, tried again and the red bumps returned. Grrr. Now I have no options to choose from for foundation from Paula's Choice.

                      I have used PC for about 14 years. I really tried to like this new foundation. I feel like I have normal skin but this foundation makea my skin so dry. It makes it look flaky. It's awful. And it doesn't blend well. I even bought a second color hoping I could combine. I've tried to mix it with my PC moisturizer and the oil as well neither works. I'm so sad. I need a foundation. Please bring back All Bases Covered. I have a little left and save it for special occasions. It's sad. I'm afraid after 14 yes I will have to make a trip to the cosmetic counter.

                            I'm a long-time user of Paula's Choice skincare and makeup and this is my first negative review. I was so disappointed in this makeup, especially since it's really the only choice now for me in the PC line. The foundation is very, very thin, almost like water. In fact, it looks like water and powder going on the skin. It dries so fast that it's almost impossible to blend, and it just cakes up like powder in fine lines and pores, even with moisturizer underneath. It doesn't even cover the mild redness from my Rosacea. Please, please bring back Best Face Forward foundation! I hate that I'm going to have to go through and try to find an over-the-counter foundation, especially since PC products agree with my sensitive skin.

                              So relieved to find a cruelty free, good quality but affordable foundation that works very well for me. I wanted a liquid form and this is somewhere in between liquid and cream. I don't like cream foundations because they are too hard to apply. This is much easier but still provides good coverage, and does not seep into creases and pores. Please continue this product!
