    More shades please
    • I like this so much that I buy 2 shades and blend them. I can't tolerate anything with a scent and Paula keeps me safe. I keep a bottle of body wash at my in-laws so I can wash my hands!

    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

    Like Skin
    • First timer here! Just got this foundation in today (4/21/14) and loved the way it made my skin felt. It gave my skin a nice dewy finish, not drying at all. It gives a good amount of coverage that I almost don't need concealer for my dark circles! I only gave it 4 stars because the color is off for me. I'm pretty pale and this made my skin look yellow; almost like I had tanned my face, and I got it in nude! Oh well, the search continues.

    Love This Foundation!!
    • This All Bases Covered Foundation is absolutely wonderful! Wish I could give it 100 stars! Looks very natural, lasts all day, and is easy to apply. I had given up on liquid foundations and had switched to mineral powders - but this ABC gives my complexion a dewy, not shiny, glow that is so flattering. I "set" it with a very light dusting of my mineral powder and it lasts from morning until bedtime. Really love it! Thanks so much Paula!

    Awesome!
    • I am not sure who has changed, me or All Bases Covered. I tried this makeup a few years ago and thought it was only OK. I recently tried it again and absolutely love it. The color is perfect for my fair coloring, it has a nice medium coverage that lasts all day and doesn't dry out. I highly recommend this makeup if your skin is dry and you want a medium coverage makeup.

    Good-wish it came in more shades
    • This foundation has a great texture to it, reminds me of the MUCH pricier NARS Sheer Glow in light texture and smooth application. It spreads evenly and doesn't give a chalky appearance at the end of the day. I really wish this came in more shades! It is not good for very fair skin. The lightest shade is a little too dark on my skin, making my neck and chest look really pale in comparison when I wear it. It would be perfect if it only came in more shade

    Hi Mollie! Thank you for sharing your experience, and we're sorry the All Bases Covered wasn't a shade match for you! We will certainly share your feedback with the team, but in the interim we would recommend you try our RESIST Foundation, which has a shade that is exceptionally fair (Porcelain / Level 0). Contact Customer Care and they would be happy to send you a sample to try.

    Lovely finish
    • This product is perfect for those days when I don't want a completely formal, made-up look. The coverage is sheer, but the result still evens out my skin tone and leaves a soft, dewy finish that lasts all day. The Nude looks as though it would be far too light for my skin, but the colour seems to warm up after it's been on for a while. This is lovely stuff if you want a sheer, glowy look. Plus, it has sunscreen, which is always good.

    Where were you all my life?
    • I ordered samples of the first 3 shades and got a generous amount, which I am using for 3 days now. I thought I was shade Nude but "ooops" how far off I was: I am Wheat. So please order samples first! This foundation is God sent for my 55 yr. old, dry flaky skin. It leaves a semi-dewy finish and I don't have to use powder on top.

    My New Fav!
    • I have been looking for a foundation that wasn't too thick or runny and this is it! Perfect for me! I first got the trial size in the lightest shade. It covers my acne scars and evens my complexion overall. Also I love it because it has sunscreen!!! It has a light fragrance that isn't overbearing. So ordering full size! Oh and my skin is super acne prone and this hasn't broke me out! Try the sample!!

    Great Product
    • This is a wonderful foundation. My skin is tricky--pale, sensitive, blotchy, acne prone, dry, flaky, large pores--so I've long accepted that any foundation will only be subpar, but this is a great product. It doesn't aggravate my acne or my flaky patches, and it covers well while still looking natural. I did not experience problems with the color (I chose Nude for my fair, very pink skin) or pilling due to the higher SPF.

    Making me look great for YEARS!!!
    • I've used PC for years. ABC Foundation is my all-time FAVE! I've tried others when I run out or hear a raving review of another product but keep coming back to this! Keeps my DRY skin hydrated, stays on ALL DAY - even without primer or setting spray. Breezes over any fine lines. I LOVE the adjustable coverage. Most of all, it BLENDS into my skin - it doesn't just sit on top! A lot of the negative reviews are about the colors, Paula add more colors so everyone can benefit from this product.

    Waaay too drying
    • I have very dry, reactive and mature skin. I avoid any product that threatens to mattify oil or anything with certain oils, fragrances, talc, etc. that I know I will react to. The ingredient list passed my scrutiny and I ordered two samples of the nude. Sadly, after a four hour road test, when I washed it off my skin looked dry and pulled extremely taut, felt rought and bumpy and completely drained of moisture.The nude was also too whitish for my light skin, and the matte finish not flattering.

    Perfect for dry skin!
    • I use this for years now, I am 40 and I have dry sensitive skin. I was tempted several times to use another expensive brands such as Chanel, Clarins and much more as I do love make up and creams :-D, but I always come back to this one! It covers my rosacea, it is easy to spread and it doesn't look you are wearing make up at all, I just love it! In winter I use Sand and in Summer I mix it with wheat.

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 20 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!
