    When will this be available?
    • When will this be available again? This is my favorite foundation and I'm at a loss trying to replace this. For a company as established as Paula's, this is beginning to make us wonder why it has been out of stock for so long. Please at least give your customers an explanation. I am hesitant to purchase any more skin care as well.

    More colors please
    • Have been wearing this foundation for years but, like some other reviewers, I have found the latest color formulation to be too yellow for my skin. I still appreciate the quality and texture. (I am wearing Nude, but now I usually mix it with a cooler-toned tinted moisturizer from another company.) Please consider adding more colors, with neutral and/or cool tones, particularly for the fair skinned ladies. Thank you.

    Concerned
    • This is a well formulated foundation for normal/dry skin. Why is the Resist make up getting 9 colors? PC has two foundation products for oily/combo skin providing 13 combined colors but only one foundation for normal/dry & ONLY 4 color choices. Please remember us dry skin folks & give us more choices. Your products are great.

    Thanks for your comments! The Resist foundation has more shades because it does not have sunscreen and is therefore not an over-the-counter drug. All of our current foundations with sunscreen were offered with darker shades (though not very dark) at one point, but, sadly, they did not sell well. As a result, we ended up disposing of many of them due to their SPF-imposed expiration dates. At this time, it isn't cost-effective for us (or our customers) to offer darker shades in our SPF-rated foundations. Perhaps as our customer base grows, this will change due to demand. We're certainly open to offering such shades again!

    Best foundation ever
    • I absolutely adore this foundation. It looks like your skin but better. I have never used a liquid foundation that covers so well but looks like you are not wearing makeup. Amazing! I am going to order 5 next time this comes back in stock because I am at a loss not being able to order!!! Please replace this asap!!!

    only one colour left?
    • I love it!! It is light (not cakey) natural looking and just perfect for my dry and sensitive skin. Most foundations are too dry or worse: leaving a mat finish and too pinkish for my somewhat yellowish/rosacea skin. I love the fact that it has a yellow undertone while all other foundations are always too pink or greyish on my skin. I am using it for years but now I am chocked: I like to reorder the sand colour but only fawn is available?!? Help!

    • I have been using this product for years and am totally happy with it. I am 64 y.o. with dry skin and a warm skin tone, mediun shade. The coverage is perfect for my ruddy complection while keeping a natural look. Before finding this in wheat color, I had many many misses with many different brands and colors. Thank you, Paula!

    Product separates over time
    • While I like this foundation I don't wear it every day, and have discovered that the sunscreen separates from the other ingredients when it's left to sit. It stains my fingers white and shows up on my face as tiny white balls (which I either brush off or blend in). Shaking the container before applying doesn't seem to help. Not sure if this is due to age (bought it at least 6 months ago) or lack of use, but thought I would mention.

    More Colors/Rose Base
    • It would be a delight to have more color choices and especially some with a Rose base instead of the yellow base. I have used this product for years and at one time even mixed 2 colors when I was spending more time in the sun. But those days are over and it seems all of the current colors are too dark or too yellow.

    ABC Foundation
    • I've used this since 2008. The pros: natural looking; does not settle in lines; good coverage. The cons: only 4 colors; all the colors are yellow based. I use Nude now. Sand got darker when more SPF was added. I used this reluctantly because I like the fact that it meshes well with my skin but please please get more colors & stop the "yellow base" train.

    More colors, please.
    • I will add my name to the now long list of those wishing for more colors in this moisturizer. I find these colors yellowish and would love something with a little more pink - as in healthy-looking for those of us with fair skin. I love the ease of smoothing it on, the medium coverage, the dewy finish and the spf 25. While this is my go-to moisturizer for every-day use, at night and for special occasions I switch to a department store brand in a more-flattering color.

    Wishing it came in more colors!
    • I love Paula's products and also your customer service. I greatly wish that All Bases Covered came in more colors. At 63 years old with sensitive, dry skin, this foundation seems perfect for me. I purchased a sample in the lightest color, nude. Unfortunately it makes my face appear too yellow, almost like when I'm not feeling well. If a person has a warmer toned, fair complexion, it would probably be perfect for them. The sand color looks too warm too and it's probably too dark, as well.

    Hmmm
    • It would be so nice if Paula would give the shades names like Warm (W), Neutral (N), and Cool (C), and Shade levels, like (1,2,3,4...). Its really hard to know whether Nude, and Sand, and Wheat would be a good shade for a person, because those are just names.

    The lightest shade is way too dark
    • I love the texture of this foundation and how easy it is to apply. Alas, I am fair-skinned and the lightest shade is several shades too dark for me. I'd love for PC to extend the color range. Surprising she hasn't since she criticizes other companies for limited ranges. I would definitely use this if there was a color light enough for me. A luminizing aspect would also be nice.

    great coverage.
    • I've used Paula's Choice skin care for years, but only recently tried the foundations... WOW. It has made all the difference in the world to use make up w/healthy ingredients! No more clogged pores, No More Breakouts! The I was glad that one of the ABC colors fit my skin tone; it is a very good coverage make up, goes on smoothly, and stays all day looking great.

    Perfect for dry skin!
    • My favorite light/medium coverage foundation with a natural finish. It doesn't sit in fine lines by the end of the day like most TMs and foundations do for me. Blends beautifully with your fingers and lasts all day. I am a medium skin tone with neutral undertones and Wheat is a perfect match for me.

    Back to the drawing board....
    • I tried a sample of this before I purchased. Apparently the samples dry out a bit so the sample was much thicker than the full size product, which led me to believe it had good coverage. It does not. I have rosacea and like a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, which is what this feels like. It isn't 'medium' at all. The finish is supposed to be 'dewy' but I find it registers more like 'greasy'. Color Nude was OK but a bit yellow for my skin tone.

    Love it!
    • I love this product. I am 48 with very dry skin. I love the coverage this foundation gives - a little goes a long way! It is wonderful to wear a foundation that does not leave my skin feeling tight and dry. It stays in place all day and when I come home from work, my skin does not feel dried out and dehydrated. I am so happy with all of my Paula's Choice products. I am telling family and friends about these products because after using them, I am a believer that Paula keeps her word!

    Not for me personally
    • Nude was too light, sand was a bit dark/too yellow-toned. I'm used to more matte foundations so I found this a bit greasy for what I'm used to. 3 stars because if the color suits you and you like the feel of it, it would be fine. P.S. My skin colour is a fair/light olive tone, brown hair, hazel green eyes.

    Great product but needs more shades
    • I love the texture of this foundation and the fact that it has a good SPF with titanium dioxide. The product feels so nice on my dry skin. Unfortunately, the colour selection is terrible. There are only four shades and obviously there are a lot more skin tones than that. I have it in the nude and it is still to dark for my fair skin!

    All Bases Covered Foundation SPF #25
    • I really love this foundation! So great for my dry/sensitive skin & with a great SPF! However, I would have to buy the Neutral & the Wheat shade to mix them to get the exact match for my skin. I wish she would come out with a color in between these two, then it would be my HG

Product Ingredients:

Active: Titanium Dioxide 11.29% Other: Water, Isohexadecane (thickener/texture enhancer), C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (emollient), Silica (absorbent silicone), Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate (skin conditioning agent), Cetyl Dimethicone Copolyol (silicone emollient), Hexyl Laurate (emulsifier), Tocopheryl Acetate (antioxidant), Polysorbate 80 (thickener), Polyethylene (film-former/slip agent), Alumina (opacifying agent), Magnesium Sulfate (thickener), Aluminum Stearate (thickeners), Sodium Chloride (stabilizer), Polyhydroxystearic Acid (thickener), Triethoxycaprylylsilane (silicone-based emulsifier), Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben (all preservatives).

DIRECTIONS: Apply after using your usual skin-care routine. You can use this foundation with sunscreen over your daytime moisturizer whether it also contains sunscreen or not. It is fine to layer sunscreens. Apply with a makeup sponge, foundation brush, or clean fingertips.

If desired, follow with a pressed powder.

How is All Bases Covered Foundation different from other Paula's Choice foundations?

The major differences are texture and finish. All Bases Covered Foundation feels creamier, has a natural matte finish, and reduces shine. Best Face Forward Foundation has a fluid, very light texture that feels weightless and provides a reliable matte finish, great for those with normal to oily skin. Barely There Sheer Matte Tint SPF 30 is also extremely sheer, with just a hint of color and is better for someone with normal to dry skin.

How come this foundation's SPF rating increased from SPF 15 to SPF 25? Did the formula change?

Rest assured the formula has not changed. What happened is that we retested this foundation to comply with the latest FDA regulations. We were thrilled to find out that not only does this sunscreen meet the FDA's new broad-spectrum protection standards, but also that its mineral-based SPF rating is higher than previous testing revealed. It's the same moisturizing foundation you've been enjoying—only now you're getting a greater amount of critical sun protection!
