The best foundation for dry skin!
from Santa Cruz, CA
About Me Classic Style
Comments about ALL BASES COVERED SPF 25 - Nude - 1 oz:
This is truly the best foundation I have ever used. I have dry skin with fine lines and freckles, and this provides even coverage without masking my freckles or sinking into fine lines. I use a foundation brush to apply and can use extra product in areas that need more coverage without any pilling or caking. The finish is very natural, and it really looks like skin once it sets! I have fair-medium skin with neutral undertones and wear Sand in the winter and Wheat in the summer. Please never discontinue this!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Foundation for light skin tone
About Me Natural Style
So, I usually have combinatin skin, but lately after getting some random horrible skin breakouts my skin is tending to be very dry (probably using so many products to get rid of it!) This foundation is great for me. I use to be able to wear any foundation but now even pricey oil free ones break me out by the next day-- it sucks. This one however, has not caused any breakouts which is GREATTTTT. Also, I keep seeing some say the yellow undertone is bad for their fair skin, but I am Irish with auburn hair, brown eyes, and light skin tone. The nude was too light for me and so I went with the sand because it fit me better in the sample pack I received first. Everyone's skin tones will be different and I guess I'm a little weird in my hair/eye/skin color mix and am a neutral so I can wear cool or warm shades. The great thing is though it is easy to return/exchange products! This foundation is super easy to go on too, I use a beauty blender and its a very natural finish. Great product please do not discontinue this!

natural looking coverage, durable
By 8 year PC customer
from Washington, DC
I am a serial purchaser of cosmetics and ABC is the foundation I always come back to. I have a light complexion with neutral undertones and Sand works perfectly for me. Coverage ranges from medium to full depending on how much product you use, but looks incredibly natural. I have melasma and this provides great coverage without looking heavy, Serious blemishes would require a separate concealer, but ABC creates a pretty flawless canvas over most imperfections.While ABC is supposedly geared towards dry skin, I have oily skin and live in a climate with hot and humid summers and find it holds up beautifully with melting or streaking. I would be sad (actually, panicked) if this was ever discontinued.

Shades An Issue
from Saratoga, CA
I'm 69 and my skin is now drying out after years of acne & oiliness. All Bases blurs old marks & skin imperfections pretty well and the texture is great and stands up to sweat & perspiration more than many foundations. However, for dry skin it definitely needs serum & moisturizer as a base and finishing powder to mitigate shine. I have 1 main gripe: the shades are too yellow. I bought Nude, Sand & Wheat to mix depending on time of year. I have a neutral to warm skin tone and the shades alone or in any combination were just too yellow to look really natural on me. Please add one or more cooler shades. I'd mix them with the yellow shades to get my perfect skin match.

Just expensive sunblock
I've used PC products for many years and have never returned anything before, but after using All Bases Covered for two weeks my face started breaking out and I didn't like the thick feel of it. If your looking for a tinted sunblock this would be great but it won't cover blemishes. My skin is in pretty good shape at 51 but I've got sensitive skin and was hoping this would work for me. This product had high ratings which is why I ordered it but it doesn't work for my skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'm a believer!
I love Paula's Choice skincare products but could never find the right foundation...until now. I have a kabillion bottles of foundation and find that this one meets all the needs of my combination/dry skin. It applies smoothly, lasts all day and the color looks very nice. I am a believer now!

Surprising hero product in a large PC's order!
Of all Paula's Choice products I've tried (about 10!!!), I was surprised to see that the AHAs and BHAs formulas did nothing for me, but the "hero" of the bunch was this foundation. I have dry skin and this product became my favorite sunblock/foundation for everyday use. I have light-medium skin and got the light shade. It works well, but I'd prefer a shade in-between PC's light and medium. The foundation blends well with a BeautyBlender and stays on for a long time. I do have to wear a moisturizer underneath. My favorite from the line is the Resist with Retinol, as the Moisture Boost one was a flop for me (no added moisture whatsoever). Will likely repurchase this one. Beats MAC's mineralize-line foundation and Bourjois's healthy mix serum foundation.

MY HOLY GRAIL!
By Fanny M.
from San Francisco,CA
About Me Trendy Style
I have tried so many high end foundations, looking for my HG! This is it! It applies smoothly with brush or fingers, looks like skin and is easily buildable for more coverage in areas where more is needed. I no longer use concealer, as this product provides enough coverage on lids and under eyes area without looking heavy. The small tube is great for travel and provides assurance that the foundation hasn't expired as I won't have to wonder how long I have had it sitting on the shelf!I have fair skin (Barely There Tint in #1) and I could not have found a better match for my skin than Nude. It leans neither yellow nor pink but seems very neutral which I also like. I was initially hesitant to purchase because it states it is "matte". I found it to be moisturizing with a slight dewy finish which is perfect for my 50 something skin. I think this is so natural looking it is perfect for day and/or evening. Couldn't recommend more highly!!!

Quality product but lightest shade too dark, not at all a...
Comments about ALL BASES COVERED SPF 25 - Wheat - 1 oz:
This is an impressive foundation! Fool-proof application, kind to my very dry rosacea, covered well yet looked natural, except the lightest color is unwearable! I do love the RESIST foundation but its application takes a careful, talented hand, with a lot of waiting time before it settles and looks natural. However, I'll be back to buy a tube since if I mix it with a white foundation I can get my shade. Tedious, but my sensitive skin only allows me to wear few foundations & this is the best
A good solution for me
By Marilyn H
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!
