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.

    I ran out and had a Chanel Vitamiere Aqua I had bought because it provides such great coverage, but my skin started breaking out and I'm 49! I forgot how much other bases mess with my skin, I am a devotee to Perricone MD!

        Comments about Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation:

        I'm amazed at how well this product works. I'm 46 years old & I do not have great skin, but I also do not like to use heavy makeup. This product allows my skin to look "natural", only better. It's pricey & I do not typically spend a lot on make-up. However, I will be saving up to be able to continue to purchase this.

          Comments about Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation:

          I have rosacea, but no acne, a scruff I have to shave off every day, and super cool undertones and super fair skin. It is SO HARD to find foundation that works for me. I don't want heavy coverage, but I do want something that will help tone down the redness. This is the best foundation I've ever tried for me, and I hate that it's so expensive, so I don't get it very often. (My alternative of Maybelline Fit Me, but it's not nearly so good). But this, this is amazing. It's a perfect match for my skin, it doesn't break me out, and it's just the right amount of pigment, with a very light fluid consistency. The only thing I don't like is that the pump doesn't lock and the little collar it comes with isn't very helpful, and that you absolutely have to powder it because it will stay just a touch tacky.

                          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).
