Fabulous coverage, not enough shades

Comments about ALL BASES COVERED SPF 25 - Nude - 1 oz:
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
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

About Me Beauty Expert
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!

About Me Natural Style
I have rosacea and flaky skin and have found it impossible to find a foundation that doesn't look chalky on my skin....until now! This sinks in beautifully and doesn't irritate my skin. The nude shade is also the best match to my skin tone yet! Thanks for a great product!

from Los Angeles, CA
I purchased this while it was on sale after trying a sample pack to match my skin tone. In winter, I tend to be dry but the rest of the year, I have combination skin. My coloring is light but not porcelain, with mild rosacea. I have light brown eyes and hair, and neutral undertones. The Nude shade is a good match for me. Even though it has some SPF, I apply it over a mineral-based sunscreen in the daytime when I want a polished look and over a moisturizer at night to go out. I can't speak to how well it covers dark circles as I don't have them. It does a good job covering redness, broken capillaries and uneven skin tone on my cheeks and doesn't irritate my skin. At 63, I do have a few wrinkles and it doesn't settle into fine lines, not even around my eyes. I apply it by patting very gently with fingers (foundation brushes and even sponges are too irritating). I use a light dusting of the pressed mineral powder in Neutral to set it. It doesn't come off on a tissue if I blow my nose, which surprised me, but it was still easy to remove with my usual cleanser. This is the best everyday foundation for my skin type that I've found. I will definitely repurchase. Well done, Paula's Choice.
