    A good solution for me
    • I need lighter coverage (to hide surface veins), but allow the natural glow of my healthy skin to show. I have very light skin, that is smooth and even, but mature. I use the PC-SR moisturizers and the PC-resist serums and treatments (why my skin is healthy). I mixed equal parts of the SR-SPF with the nude shade of All Bases Covered, and tried it. I love the results, and found the best solution for me. I then set it with a light dusting of a quality powder using a large brush. Perfect!

    Still the best!!
    • I'm pretty sure I've reviewed this before...maybe even twice! I was sooo frustrated that this product was out of stock for so long and am sooo thrilled it is back. I've used it for years and it's still, hands down, the very best makeup out there. I love the finish, I love that it has sunscreen, I love how my skin looks when I use it. And I pretty much have a nervous breakdown whenever it goes out of stock LOL The price has gone up over time (boo) but it still makes me look fabulous (yay!).

    I love it!
    • I have olive skin, with a touch of rosacea, and I'm over 50. Normally I have oily/combo skin, but in the winter it gets quite dry. I love this foundation. It covers just enough, doesn't gather in my lines, and the color - I chose Sand - disappears perfectly. I will buy this again! I also quite like the texture and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything.

    Changed???
    • Has there been a formula change or have the shades changed? The Nude I use seems different, lighter than the previous tube I had before it was out of stock so long.

    Better than Dept Store!
    • I have used many foundations, all prices, and as my skin has changed I have just not been able to find anything appropriate. Some looked too "mask-y", some were too drying.... so I just quit wearing any foundation at all. I ordered samples of All Bases Covered and the Wheat looked great! Very smooth texture, does not settle in lines, stays on. I had no trouble selecting the right color. The samples at PC are the best idea ever! Oh, the Customer Service Rep suggested All Bases Covered:)

    needs more shades, but like the formula
    • I wanted to love this foundation... but I'm very pale with yellow undertones... and the lightest Nude shade was a bit too dark. Drat. Seemed to sit on my skin well (dryyyyy skin) but needed it to blend better... hoping they expand the color range soon!!

    A bit dissapointed
    • I'm going to start by saying I love this foundation. Having Rosacea for years is hard to find products that don't affect my skin. I was happy when I found this product and I have been using it for the past year. I am disappointed to the fact that has been out of stock for so long and another minor detail (that I can live with) of upping the price. Unfortunately, since I needed foundation, I had to switch to another brand and the convenience of buying it right away at the store.

    Greate but rare foundation
    • I have used this for more years than I can remember, and I have not been able to replace this foundation with anything comparable. Believe me, I've tried when it has become out of stock in the past and have been forced to find an alternative. So very aggravating! When it comes back in stock, I suggest stocking up for the next shortage. To address the limited shade issue, I always keep a tube of Wheat and a tuve of Fawn and add two dabs together before applying to get just the right shade.

    More Shades
    • Use this product and love it but would really like to see some shades that are not so dark and yellow....more pinktone shades. I have to mix this product with another cool tone foundation from another company. PC should realize not all skin tones do well with yellow bases. Please, please make a shade for us cool tone customers...then it would definitely be a 5 star product.

    Love the Nude
    • Perfect foundation: the texture, the color, the even coverage, the longevity. I have dry, fair skin with slight yellow undertones and rosacea cheeks. The Nude shade made my skin glow. I hope they don't change the formula. When they ran out of stock months ago, I had to buy Too Faced Beauty Balm as a substitute. The Snow Glow shade is decent and comparable to All Bases Covered Nude, but it does not go on as smoothly as PC All Bases, and it dries my skin out. I miss this foundation!

    Ouch!
    • I actually liked the color and texture of this foundation. But within a minute it started to really sting my undereye area. I hadn't felt that in many years - not since I started following Paula's advice before she developed her own products. It surprised me. I'm sure glad Paula has sample packs - it saved me the hassle of returning product, so thanks for that.

    good if they have your shade
    • I have dryyyyyy skin and I was looking for a product that wouldn't stick to flaky patches and also cover up redness etc. But I'm pale. I like the silky feel of this foundation. I did need concealer for acne scarring though. I love how this product isn't full of chemical crap. But bad color selection. I'm pale with yellow undertones according to Sephora color matching and the Nude shade gave me a slight tan on my face. Drat. I would repurchase if I matched one of their colors. Buy a sample first.

    Not moisturizing enough for very dry skin and lightest color is too yellowish
    • This is just OK for me...I only use it occasionally (the Nude shade) and I usually end up mixing it with something paler to try to tone down the strong yellow tone of it. I have very Irish skin--fair with pink undertones and have had a hard time finding a shade from any company that is flattering on me. This also does not provide enough moisture for my very dry skin and I would love to see a truly creamy foundation(but natural looking) option from Paula for those of us with aging skin.

    • 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.

    Customer Service Response
    Replied on: Monday, October 27, 2014

    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!

    • 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!

    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.

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!
