Most Helpful Positive Review It's Still Foundation, but Better
I am a light foundation wearer so I love this product. I didn't always like how foundation made my skin feel. As I said, I still think of this as a foundation, it's just much lighter and you get all the other good Perricone stuff. Also, it does well in the heat and humidity of summer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not my favorite
I have been using a series of Perricone products for a couple of months so am fairly new to the serious skin care group. I've been using the SPF 15 tinted moisturizer since last fall and was happy to see this new product since I needed a higher SPF for summer. I've had this for a couple of weeks and would love it if only I were 20 years younger and 3 skin shades darker! I guess Dr. Perricone has never done any home renovations, but as most know who are refurbishing an older home, you never use a high or even low sheen paint on imperfect walls. The sheen makes every nick and bump very obvious. The same can be said for foundation I've decided. This product is SOOO shiny when you've put it on, it draws attention to every flaw in the skin. Like a glowing billboard! Plus, you just look greasy, not "dewey" as the sales person stated. The tint is also way too dark for my skin tone, I am of Scottish/Irish/English descent and when I put on this foundation, I look like I've used the fake tan stuff. I'm disappointed that Perricone is discontinuing the other tinted sunscreen so am going to go buy 2 or 3 tubes of the "Light" to have on hand.

I purchased this product with extremely high hopes due to the amount of positive reviews and the price point. Upon immediate application it's a little thicker and messier than I expected, but overall good. It can get a bit streaky with a brush but it blends beautifully with a blending sponge. It wears well under other makeup and after I finished the application I felt sure that I was going to love this foundation. If you're only going to wear this foundation for about 3 hours, this is the one for you, if not, don't waste your money. Around the 3-4 hour mark it starts to break down, and it gets these weird white spots, almost as if some sort of spf is breaking through. Setting spray doesn't fix this, powder doesn't fix this, leaving it alone doesn't fix this. It ALWAYS breaks down. It's incredibly unfortunate considering the immediate finish is amazing and it's a very expensive product. With no other use I'm going to have to try and dump the foundation and recycle the packaging.
Please back the original serum that I have used for years!
Lisa from Yorba Linda, CA
New product doesn't have a color close to the original serum. I've bought three different colors and none of them work. Product goes on just like every other foundation on the market. It's buildable but even a small amount is thick. There is nothing special about it anymore.
Anna from Denver
I wasn't going to leave a review because I thought it was an isolated event but then I saw another reader also had the same thing happen to her.
I loved this product and used the old formula for about 1 month - smooth, light coverage, not Camry. But then I used it and my skin felt like it was burning so I washed it off. I broke out in hives and it was super itchy for about 2-3 days and the red bumps remained for a full week And longer on my cheeks... they were small red bumps. I have been too scared to try it again after that.
Will not buy the new formula again
Dee from Boston ma
Very disappointed in Perricone. This new formula has an spf of 20 . The original formula had an spf of 30. There was NO mention of this reduction in the literature. I feel this is deceiving, and a reduction of spf goes against most Recommendations for sun protection.
Really natural, feels good on skin
Riley from CA
This has a really natural finish, not too matte, not too shiny. It is also buildable and does a descent job blending (but not totally concealing) some mild acne, which is how I prefer it. Fingertips is honestly the best way to blend. It doesn't dry my skin out and a little goes a long way. I only bought it because it was on super sale, and unfortunately, now I'm hooked and I'll have to shell out when I have to buy a new bottle but I think it's worth it.
Prefer old formula
April from Kentucky
I used the old formula of this for a couple of years and loved it. In my 40's, I don't like most foundation on my face because it settles into lines and looks "cakey." I loved the old formula. It would glide on, give me light coverage and glow, and look smooth. I just started using my first bottle now that it comes in multiple skin colors and I hate it. It looks like every other foundation on my skin. It cakes and settles into all of my fine lines. I bought two bottles while it was on sale and I'm so sad because I doubt I'll finish one. Wishing for the old formula...
Love it however got a broken bottle
Sara from Michigan
I love this product so much that I bought one for my mom as well. However when I received it in the mail, bottle was broken and product was leaked.
Luckily I had one more I just purchased few days ago for myself, so I gave it to her and kept the broken one for me..
I will definitely purchase again.
Katharine from Undisclosed
Love the coverage and the color!
Yes I would buy again love it very much
Glenda from Undisclosed
Love the no makeup liquid. Sunscreen & covers uneven skin tone . Doesn't look like liquid foundation, natural looking protection. 😃
Cristina from Undisclosed
I like it, but I don't know if i need i darker color. also, it will be great if some instructions come with the product since I have never used these brand.
I absolutely love it.
rexsgirl from West Virginia
It works exactly as it should. I'm 52 with combo skin. I have rosacea. This surprisingly covers darn well for a no makeup makeup look. I can't feel it on and it goes on fairly smoothly. I can get away with tan for my medium/Olive/neutral skintone but could use a shade a tad lighter. So glad O purchased this. The only downside is the high price. Even $30 is too high for a foundation in my opinion. Although you don't need much.
Cecilia from Undisclosed
Best product I have used
I would buy this product over and over again.
Vivienne from Undisclosed
I love love this serum. It has best texture, goes on smoothly, is thin, yet it evens out the skin tone, which is all I want. Could not be happier with it.
HOW is this rated good?! Did I get two duds?
Aplaw723 from Rockwell, NC
How on earth is this stuff even still on shelves? Did I get two duds? The shade range is lacking- so I bought two shades when it was on sale for 50% off. I bought the two lightest shades. The lightest one was geisha girl white with no coverage. The next shade was orange. Oompa Loompa orange. I did everything right. Cleansed, moisturized & even primed using their $55 Pericone MD primer balm. I was so excited to apply, I just knew it was going to be fantastic. It's terrible. Don't waste your money or your time with this stuff. I would compare it to applying thin mud to my face. Streaky, orangey, blotchy & doesn't blend well. I hate returning cosmetics because I know they just get trashed but this stuff is going back TODAY. I wouldn't take it for free, much less the retail price.
Perfect for a natural look
Claire from AZ
I don't not wear a lot of makeup, so this foundation is great for me. I feel like my skin looks really good! The bronzer and blush are great too! I wish Ulta sold the highlighter!
Severe allergic reaction
Tina from IL
I tried this twice. The 1st time my face swelled up, red, itchy rash turned brown and scaled. It last about 5 days total. I just tried it again and the same thing happened. This time I needed steroids and prescription strength allergy medication. I'm still not sure what I'm allergic to that is in this product.
I'm absolutely AMAZED by this product.
Kerry Q. from Paradise, CA
I'm 38 with oily acne prone skin& always thought that I needed a full coverage makeup. Unfortunately I have a bad medical condition that makes me super tired so when I do wanna go out, I want something quick and easy. I totally agree with another review from TattooedSue that this stuff with the primer has changed my mind about makeup. I love how smooth it is and how it blends to my light skin tone. I use Ivory.... It made my face look younger and not that cakey. I'm not trying to brag but when I went out yesterday I got hit on by more men than ever before & I truly believe it's because how beautiful my face looked.... & it only took me 5 mins to do my makeup. Definitely give it a try. 😊
Love, love, love!
TattooedSue from Indiana
I absolutely love this product. I have fair-light sensitive skin. I've always used thicker foundations to be the coverage I thought I needed. Tried this on a whim and boy and I glad I did. Covers beautifully and feels so light - like wearing no makeup at all.
This foundation feels amazing on my skin!
Jerrie from Tampa, Fl
This foundation is extremely lightweight with great coverage. I do have to state that I have very clear and even skin. The coverage is buildable but if you want something with extreme coverage, this won't be the best option for you. My skin feels like I'm just wearing moisturizer. I bought 3 when they were on sale.
I would buy this product again.
Sonotech9097 from Herndon, VA
It looks clear and natural. Improves my skins appearance. Does not cake.
Need more shades
BlessedBeyondMeasure from Crowley, TX
This foundation's darkest shade was way to too light for me. I love their skin care line and desperately wanted to try their foundation. Oh, well.
Zee from New york
I bought it this week and it was amazing not going back to my other products
1st time buyer, love it
Carey from Undisclosed
Love this product. So lightweight, exactly the level of coverage I needed to cover some hyperpigmentation. It makes your skin feel so soft.
Not for me
Dee in Montana from Northwest Montana
This is to heavy of a coverage for me. If you like a tinted moisturizer this is not the one. Highlighted pores and was very dark in color even though I purchased by recommendation from other reviews. Returning.
Would not buy again. Would try others but not without sample
Joann from Undisclosed
Did not work for me. To dry and cakes and color to light
