    Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum:

    I have never liked to use regular foundations. Too hard, too much time, to match skin tones. I love that this serum blends into my skin so perfectly. I have very sensitive skin and this serum causes no problems.

      Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum:

      This product was my absolute favorite! Then for a long time it was out of stock and just recently was available for order. I was so happy it was back, but I feel like they changed the color a bit. It used to blend seamlessly with my skin tone and now I think it's darker and a bit orange-y. I notice that when I wear it there is a big difference between my face and neck color and when I ask people they say I do look a little orange-y. I'm SO sad. I don't even think I will finish the bottle, but will need to find something else.

        I love this product I've been using this for a few years now I am a male and uses the serum as my male grooming routine for a undetectable natural finish. As a make up artist on working with clients I would love to see the serum one day be in a range of shades . But I have to say that this last all day and gives you a nice natural finish and coverage and I love the sun protection that it gives me.

          Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum:

          I have combo skin so was a little worried this would make me oily within a short time. It hasn't been an issue at all, though. In fact this lasts much longer on my skin without creasing or separating! This is the ONLY product that doesn't crease around my smile lines. Even after 6 hours!

          Only comes in one shade but matched my skin tone pretty well. Kind of pricey but worth it so far. This has a little more coverage than a tinted moisturizer so if you have dark under eye or blemishes you might want to use concealer as well.

            Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum:

            I started with the No Foundation Foundation, but found that as I went through the bottle, the color because darker and more orangey. Although I liked the texture and the way it blended, the color differential made it look obvious after about half a bottle. Then the No Foundation Foundation cam out with a lighter shade, which was much better at retaining its color and not darkening. However, both of the No Foundation Foundations are a little shiny, and I live in a hot climate where shine is intensified. Then I tried the No Foundation Serum. It was little less coverage than the No Foundation Foundation, but dried more matte, so the finish was perfect. Unfortunately, like the No Foundation Foundation, over time the color in the bottle darkens and becomes sadly obvious. I stopped buying it. If Perricone made a lighter shade of the serum, like it does for the Foundation, I'd be back immediately, but for now, I have a hard time recommending it due to the obvious color shift over time. If you wanted to try it, I would recommend the tiny bottles, as there's less time for it to turn dark before it's all used.

                    I have been using PerriconeMD products for years now, I love the lightweight and effectiveness of the Perricone Makeup and couldn't live without my No Foundation Foundation Serum. I had already gone through several bottles and recently ran out, I bought a new bottle this week and put it on as usual, before my no makeup blush, and highlighter. After about 4 hours, my eyes started to become extremely itchy and my eyelids started to swell up. It's been three days and irritation is still very visible underneath my eye area.

                    on my fourth bottle

                    from Chicago

                    Comments about Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum:

                    I am in my mid 30s with dry, reactive, and sensitive skin. I had been using full coverage foundations for years and following the same skin routine. I recently decided to focus more on skincare and wanted to rely less on heavy foundation. I bought a smaller size bottle of this serum at another store and was hooked after the first use. this makes my skin look perfect. I use four drops and apply to my face in sections using my fingers. do not use your brushes or beauty blenders! it applies best with fingers. I conceal where necessary and set with powder. I ran out of this product recently and tried to use some of my old foundations to see how I felt about them. well I ended up going to Ulta the next day to get a new bottle of no foundation foundation serum. it's just that good.

                        Yes, this product can be mixed with a lightweight lotion, or with Perricone MD's No Highlighter Highlighter to create a lighter shade or consistency. Using a heavier cream will disrupt the formulation.

                        No Foundation Foundation Serum is offered in one universal, buildable shade with a semi-matte finish. We suggest testing this product in person to ensure the shade is compatible with your skin tone. It features a lightweight consistency suitable for all skin types and particularly well suited to oily skin. Perricone MD does not make any claims regarding how long the product should last, as this varies by individual. It is a 1 oz bottle.

                        The No Foundation Foundation delivers a luminous sheer coverage and imparts a dewy, glowing complexion, whereas the No Foundaton Foundation Serum offers a radiant, semi-matte finish that allows for buildable coverage to camouflage more visible imperfections. We recommend choosing one or the other based on your preference.
