About Me Natural Style
Comments about ALL BASES COVERED SPF 25 - Nude - 1 oz:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like it!
from Fresno, CA
I got two shades (sand & wheat). They both blend very well together, I'm Asian so the coloring/tone is good on my face. It does not feel heavy or greasy at all and I wear it all day. I love it that the sunscreen in it does not irritate my skin (a lot of foundations and lotions that has sunscreen in it tends to make me break out in hundreds of tiny white/water color bumps all over my lip area and forehead).

I love this foundation! It goes on easily and you don't need to use much. The coverage is buildable and natural looking!

Tried because it was on sale!

About Me Classic Style
I ordered all three colors but found that Wheat and Fawn were the two that matched my skin. I have dry combination skin, old blemishes, broken capillaries. This covers all and makes my face pretty natural looking, which I love. I am a young gal of 73 and do not want my lines full of makeup. Love the idea of SPF in makeup since I live in Fl. Please could we get a larger tube and please do not discontinue.

The smoothest finish yet to my skin
from Nor Cal
I have fair freckly skin and most foundations sit on top and my freckles look strangely covered up. I get this foundation in the Sand color which blends so nicely on my redhead skin. It's color works with the pinkish tone in my skin so it looks like I'm not wearing anything but it covers a lot. It soaks in fast so I have to usually reapply more. But not soaks in to dry, but my skin drinks it up and remains dewey with a nice satin finish. I make sure to exfoliate before, very important.

Nice, but not for me
I am a bit obsessive about foundation. I have a lot of criteria: smooth texture, lightweight feel, light-medium coverage, natural looking, pore-smoothing finish, workable color, reasonable longevity (about 6 hours at least), non-irritating, cruelty free. Naturally, finding the right foundation has been tough. This foundation was promising at first. Though the texture was a bit stickier than I prefer, it was workable and blended naturally. The color when it first went on was nice, almost perfect. The foundation covered the imperfections I wanted to cover, and smoothed the texture of my skin. Plus, I trust that PC products will not irritate my skin. But it oxidized like mad on my skin. By the end of the day, I was pretty shiny and I looked like I'd self tanned my face and forgotten the rest of my body. It wasn't a good look. I really really wanted to love this, but I ended up returning it due to its unflattering wear on my skin. My skin is combo and quite fair. Perhaps it will play nicer with other skin types/tones.
from Olympia, WA
Had tried this foundation quite awhile ago and wasn't impressed. Decided to try it again and love it - now using a foundation brush and finishing with a sponge. It is so lovely and within a half hour looks even better, more natural and smoother. With a light dusting of the new Resist powder it is even lovelier. I have dry, sensitive skin and many foundations looked good in the AM and within a few hrs. my skin starts to look dry. Not this one -- looks as good when I get ready to take it off as it did in the morning! I'm a convert - love it.
THE BEST FOUNDATION EVER!!!!
By Jen the Lifelong Paula Fan!
from Long Beach, CA
I LOVE this stuff! After I found out that all my favorite foundation brands were testing on animals, I was hoping Paula had a good foundation to save the day! Duh! Of course she does!!! I am SO worried this stuff will be discontinued and then I will cry. Right now it's half off, so I am thrilled, but also concerned this means it's getting the axe. Oh, I really hope not! This wonderful product doesn't dry out my skin, has SPF 25 (a must!), doesn't irritate my incredibly sensitive skin, blends amazingly well, and has excellent coverage without looking too made up. It's the perfect foundation for me! Thank you, Paula!!! < 3 < 3 < 3

Good coverae gives your skin a glow.

About Me Trendy Style
Amazingly enough I use it and I have a super oily skin. I got this a sample I end up buying not one but two tubes of this foundation so I don't ran out. It gives decent dewy coverage but most important thing vanity wise it gives your face an amazing glow. I got stock in the airport not long ago-airline fault. Had to stay in line for hours to get the hotel voucher till late at night and get up next day at 5:00am, basically no sleep. I slap that foundation on next morning & I looked like a million bucks, just glowing with health and rest.I don't know what they put inside that tube but it gives the skin an amazing glow.
from West Virginia
Decided to try this foundation as my skin cleared up, thanks to the PC Clear system. I was worried about throwing out my old, full coverage foundation but I am glad I did. This foundation gives me just enough coverage to hide the few blemishes I still have, but also allows my skin to breathe. It doesn't look cakey and it keeps oil at bay. When I apply, I use a makeup brush instead of my fingers. It makes the application much easier.
