Not thrilled ...

Comments about ALL BASES COVERED SPF 25 - Nude - 1 oz:
Was disappointed. Had hoped this might replace the Sheer Matte Tint I'd come to rely on (my HG product, in shades 1 & 2). Ordered this product in "Nude" but found the shade too orange once it dried. And blending left a bright, white film (aluminum starch?) on every fingertip, so I had to keep washing my hands after blending various parts of my face. A very inconvenient, annoying side-effect.I am desperately hoping Paula's Choice will bring back something comparable to the Sheer Matte Tint, or I'll have to look elsewhere as I've had no luck with the other foundations either.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wonderful consistency but need more colors, please
from Philadelphia, PA
About Me Minimalist
I was looking for a foundation that doesn't contain chemical sunscreen as they can be irritating to my skin (rosacea). I first tried the sand color but it was too dark. The nude tends to work well for me, albeit slightly too yellow. I seem to be able to pull it off as I have a fairly neutral (and light) skin tone. I wish the product were slightly pinker however. This foundation goes on smooth and light and works over the Redness Relief moisturizer (dry skin) and blends well with my favorite concealer. The packaging is tops for keeping the ingredients stable. I love this product, but wish it were a little pinker. I will continue to purchase All Bases Covered SPF 25 as my daily foundation, and can highly recommend to friends and family.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fabulous coverage, not enough shades
By Ariel DL

About Me Beauty Conscious
I love the feel of this product, and it wears very well over a primer with no additional powder needed. It spread very evenly with just my fingertips, and only a very little was needed for normal daily use.It covered slight discolorations well, but I found I also needed concealer to cover breakouts when they occurred.Unfortunately I can only wear this in the summer, as the Nude shade is too dark/ orange on my skin tone in winter. I can't recommend this for fairer skin tones. Please, Paula's - make this with 1 shade lighter?The only foundation I have found that works well to replace this for winter costs 3x as much. So if it matches your skin - it is a steal!

from Tacoma, WA
I bought this foundation after I developed adult onset acne and roseacia. I needed something to help cover up the redness and scars that didn't emphasize my dry skin, aging skin. This foundation is great. It provides light, moisture rich coverage Just evening out my skin tone. To cover up my breakouts and scars, I layer on the foundation just in the spots needed with a Makup sponge then I set it with PC's resist powder (which is also awesome). This foundation doesn't cause any additional breakouts (which was a problem with my Lancôme foundation I was using) and doesn't looked caked on or emphasize my wrinkles (I'm 41 years old). I also use this foundation as an eyeshadow base and it works great. Doesn't at all dry out my eyelids. It also blends beautifully with my other PC products I use. Thanks Paula!
Beautifully covers with a very natural and soft look. I use this product daily and it is flawless.
Great wear, light coverage
from Denver, CO
I'm so excited to have discovered Paula's Choice recently. I've struggled with my acne-prone skin for decades (I'll be 40 this year!), and these products have been life-changing already...and it's only been a week! I wanted to love this make-up since the other products are so great, but I don't feel that it has enough coverage to really conceal some of my post-acne marks and hyperpigmentation. I tried using a couple layers, and that seemed to help, but I still feel that some of these marks are showing through. Other than this one drawback, I do feel this is a wonderful product!

If only it came in a lighter shade :'(
I really love this stuff! Unfortunately, it's slightly darker than my usual pale skin tone. I've only been able to wear it since I went to the beach and got a bit of a tan.
This is the best foundation. Nude color is a perfect match for me. This blends perfect. Looks natural. I hope this will never be discontinued. Paula's products are the best I have found ever. From the skin care to this foundation. Wish I would have found this line years ago.

Best for dry skin I've found
from Salt Lake City, UT
I am a total makeup snob. I love beautiful packaging and elegant products. But I couldn't find a long wearing, non-drying foundation for my dry skin. I use Paula's Choice for all of my skincare, and I love it, and I've always seen this foundation for sale but it never occurred to me to try it. I guess I didn't think it was 'fancy' enough. Well, I decided to try it on a whim and it's wonderful. It lasts ALL day, is totally NOT drying, looks lovely and feels wonderful. I feel a little dumb for being so stubborn to not try it. I highly recommend it. I even think it would be fine for oily skin with a mattifying primer or something.

By Age is all in your head
I love this foundation! You know how it is to be nabbed in the cosmetic aisle and arrive home with a bag of super-brand makeup, only to be disappointed in the quality. I am so happy with Paula's Choice All Bases Covered. First, it has SPF 25. It is the only SPF 25 foundation to successfully incorporate this level of SPF without being greasy or over-pigmented. The color Sand is perfection for my skin -- it makes me look more alive than I am! I use BHA or C-boost, wrinkle formula, serum, cream, and after all of these have settled for a few minutes, I dab on ABC. The different products never peel or flake, and I don't look like I'm wearing anything at all. The product blending improves as the day wears on and by evening I'm positively glowing. What a joy to find such great products. Thank you, Paula!
