This original cult favorite foundation instantly diffuses imperfections and helps corrects skin undertones while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and pores over time with alpha lipoic acid. The result is a dewy, glowing finish, that boosts skin¿s moisture level throughout the day. It can be used individually or blended to create the perfect shade.
Dr. Perricone recommends applying evenly with your fingertips and blending product in circular motions. Can be re-applied as necessary to build desired coverage.

      It is pricey and there are only the two shades. I chose the lighter and blended it with the No Foundation Serum and it gives a great color. It looks better than any Foundation I have tried.

          Comments about Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation:

          I bought this looking for a lighter quicker option for days when I wanted do something quick but still look a bit put together. I wasn't looking for a full or even medium coverage I knew what I was getting into with this foundation and I had done a lot of research and looked at many first impression reviews online. The reason why I hate this is because it doesn't even give a light coverage or color correcting coverage. Its almost like putting water on your face,... a water that dries down to a sticky, tacky mess and smells awful. Not only that but the shade range is horrible. I bought the foundation, eyeshadow, blush, bronzer, concealer, and mascara. The only saving graces from this whole line are the blush, concealer and mascara although the mascara is a bit hard to take off. The concealer gives a nice light coverage while still brightening up your under-eye without looking heavy. The blush gives a really beautiful natural glow, and a little goes a long way. The bronzer is an oily orange mess and the foundation is truly disgusting. I love their skincare but this new makeup venture is just a fail. You are better off just using their skincare and wearing some BB cream and mascara for a light makeup look. SAVE YOUR MONEY.

                  I got a rash from using a cheaper foundation, and Perricone's foundation helped clear it up quickly. It's expensive, but just one pump from the bottle covers your face adequately. Will definitely buy it again.

                  Sadly this product is way too pricey for nothing that it does to my skin. They mean it when they say no makeup. There's barely any coverage, not even light coverage. It feels sticky on my skin and makes it impossible to blend contours.

                      The No Makeup Skincare Line is designed to be applied with your fingers as your brushes. You can customize the colors by using your hand as your palette or mixing bowl. You can press and blend the colors onto skin.

                      Unless you are very very fair go with formula #2. Formula #2 was originally created to be one universal shade. Most people are #2. If you are someone that is so fair you have a hard time finding fair/ivory foundation shades for you then you would go with #1.

                      Can you check to see if perhaps you purchased the No Foundation Serum instead? The No Foundation Foundation hasn't been changed. It is mineral based so we recommend shaking the minerals as well. Please give this a try!

                      Thank you.

                    Which gives the most coverage, the foundation or the serum? Also could this be mixed with the no bronzer bronzer to get exact shade? It's too pricy to buy both shades & mix for right colour.

                      They have comparable coverage; the serum is lighter-weight and ideal for oily skin types. Yes, you can absolutely mix it with No Bronzer Bronzer to achieve your perfect hue.

                      A:

                      No Foundation Foundation is not oil-free; however, it will not clog pores and is actually great for acne prone skin as it contains Alpha Lipoic Acid to clean out pores and tighten pore size. If you would like an oil-free option, we suggest No Foundation Foundation Serum instead (Item #: 2299290).
