Most Helpful Positive Review Like a second skin
I have probably spent thousands of dollars in the last decade searching for a foundation that A) matches me and B) looks natural.
I've tried super expensive products to cheap products, but nothing has looked as amazing on my skin as Pacifica Alight foundation. I did order 3 to color match, and my sister-in-law ended up taking one for herself because it matched her and she loved it too. In the bottle and on the sponge the product looked super dark and I was disappointed at first, thinking I had purchased 3 wrong shades. However, once I began to blend it onto my skin, they lightened up. One matched me perfectly, with one being too pale for my summer complexion, and the other being slightly too dark. Even my mother complimented my "skin" when I wore it the 2nd time and she NEVER thinks makeup looks nice. So, I suppose this is my holy grail- I've found perfection at last. It has a pump, which I LOVE, and beautiful packaging(though very breakable, so I don't recommend traveling with it unless you use bubble wrap or something else around it) and it does have an amazing price, in my opinion. I even received my package in just 2 days.
It is definitely a more satin/natural finish, and I was able to add more where I had problem areas to build coverage without it caking up. Has a slight rose scent, which I hate, but it fades within half an hour and doesn't bother me in the least.
I wear it to the gym as well and it holds up remarkably well considering it is a natural foundation and not something mainly plastic. It truly sits and wears like your own skin.
Most Helpful Critical Review It was ok.
I wanted to love this so much. The coverage is great. It made my skin super soft after using it. It feels weightless on. However, it sticks to every little dry spot. Even with heavy moisturizing I couldn't stop it. I have combination skin with no major acne but this made my skin look worse on any little dry spot I had. It might be more suitable for normal or oily skin types. Another thing is that it practically melts off of the skin if you sweat in the slightest. No amount of setting spray or powder would hold it on. The smell is great and the color range is pretty great. It takes a very small amount to build to full coverage so that's nice. Overall, I probably wouldn't buy it again for everyday use.

This is an amazing foundation! I'm on my second bottle! But it can be a little tricky. I have found that less is better with this foundation. I personally use half a pump for my full face, which gives me medium coverage. This foundation also needs to be set with powder if not it will slip and slide around and transfer everywhere. But it lasts 10 plus hours for me! For reference I have combination skin.

It gets a little glossy on me after a few hours but overall not too bad! Love the component. Only complaint is needs tons of powder. I see why on sale though lol

I love this foundation. Good coverage easy to apply with a sponge. I set it immediately after blending with the Pacifica cherry matte setting powder so it will not crease. This is by far one of the best and least expensive natural/ clean foundations, and I've tried many.

I am surprised by this foundation. I use very little typically because I find foundation aging. This foundation is very creamy and covers well a bit like concealer but without looking caked (I put it over a moisterizer). The color was perfect. The container arrived in a mess with foundation spilling out a bit all over the cap. The bottle was not sealed in plastic, which I think is necessary to ensure it is fresh.

This is my favorite foundation! It's clean, works well with other Pacifica products. My skin is combination skin and has been a lot more consistent since using Pacifica products.

I just purchased this foundation and it is amazing! I love that the color is perfect, and it doesn't feel heavy in my skin. Definitely my favorite foundation ever! And when trying to figure out what color was right for me customer service was there and helped me find the perfect shade.
Not Good At All On Sale for a Reason
Tia from North Carolina
Smudges continuously even with setting spray. Looked and felt oily even though it claims to be oil free and I have dry skin. Buyer beware
Wouldn't buy again
Kc from North carolina
I blended this just like any other foundation, it blended well. But with in a few hours it was separating on my nose and forehead.

Love this foundation. Gives a subtle glow and brightening and last well with a primer.
WisconsinGal21 from Wisconsin
Very lightweight and blends into the skin well. It didn't make my face feel heavy or greasy. I will be purchasing again!
healthy from New York
this foundation covers pretty well, but it needs so much blending to stick to your skin. used a primer, setting powder and spray and still fades, smudges and oil breaks through.
Liz from RI
Really wanted to like this but it made me super oily and this basically melted off my face. I could feel how gross it was through out the day. It cracked and settled into my skin. Did not like this at all.
emgwenn from Portland, OR
This was a perfect shade match for me which made the awful formula even more disappointing. Very greasy, patchy/streaky regardless of what primer/brush/sponge I used. It also made my face itch like crazy which is really weird because I never have reactions to products. Save your money.
This product is greasy and doesn't cover face evenly.
Nettie1970 from Wyoming
I tried this foundation using an oil free moisturizer first, then I put on the foundation and set it with a loose powder. When I looked at my face I could see bare spots on my cheeks, chin and tip of my nose where the foundation didn't adhere. This foundation is supposed to be oil-free but it feels very oily and it never dries. The next day I skipped my face lotion and just applied the foundation and powder. I had the same problem, bare spots on my face. The 3rd day I mixed it with a different brand of foundation that is very dry and oil-free. It still left bare spots on my face. I will be returning this.

I am so glad to have finally found my perfect shade. I am more than satisfied with this foundation. It really could not have been a better match. Also, it is smooth and light, just like my other Pacifica products. I do think it needs a setting powder to hold it in place (it can easily be wiped off). And, I must say, I love the packaging. I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
So far love it
Kat from Denham springs , la
I've only used it once so far but I absolutely love the natural finish it gives. It does not feel or look cakey & I don't feel like I have any foundation on which I really enjoy.
Not very good
Hello from Montana
I used it as foundation and it just wasn't what I thought it was.
Love it that its vegan,and the colors,just pop.

Use This for Radiant Skin!
Crystal Gonzales from Bakersfield, CA
Love this foundation! I have oily, acne-prone skin. This foundation covers pretty well and it creates a "natural" radiant-skin look as opposed to looking matte. As a matter of fact, when I first started using it a stranger told me, "You look radiant!" I use this with translucent powder for oil control.
Jess from Richmond, KY
Was not as good as the hype. Wouldn't blend correctly and made me look cakey. Would not recommend to anyone especially with oily skin. Big thumbs down for me👎🏻
Great finish, but not long lasting.
Izzy from Seattle
This foundation was my first foundation and I LOVE it! The finish is super glow-y and satin and it really looks like real skin! My biggest pet peeve is when foundation is so matte or shiny it no longer looks like skin. This foundation separated a little after a day, but I didn't use primer or setting powder so it might work better for you. ALSO!! After you wash this stuff off, your skin feels SO SOFT!!! At first I didn't understand why, but it has hyaluronic acid in it and it really works! Love this foundation!
Did NOT work for me
Linds from Indiana
I bought this foundation because I saw tons of people online giving it great reviews. But when I tried it, it settled into any fine lines on my face, even though it's a dewy finish, and wiped right off my face even with primer. I also noticed hyper pigmentation around my eyes with this. Do not recommend.
Linds from Indiana
Bought this on a recommendation and was not impressed. This settled into creases on my forehead and began to pill on the edges of my face.
My favorite foundation
