Most Helpful Positive Review Clean beauty bargain
I stumbled across this in Ulta, and since I had been researching silicone free products, I decided to give it a try. I have oily, acne prone skin but I usually prefer liquid foundations to powder ones. This is an amazing foundation! I will agree with another reviewer who said that it can feel sticky or tacky, but after experimenting a little with it I was able to alleviate the things that I initially was put off by. I found that applying with a brush makes the finish look streaky but after using a damp beauty blender to apply it, the look was flawless. I also think that using a primer underneath (especially for oily skin) helps a ton with this foundation, it seems to grip and hold throughout the day remarkably better when using one. A dusting with a translucent finishing powder sets and helps with oil or any dewy-ness that some people have remarked that they did not like about this. Even with using a finishing powder this stuff still looks like skin and is not overly matte, very natural and healthy looking. Considering the quality of ingredients and the performance, this stuff is a serious bargain. Since switching to silicone free products for my face, I have noticed a big difference in the overall look and appearance of my skin. Good job Pacifica! So pleased to have tried this❤️
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.

I'm 51 yo with sensitive skin. This foundation is fantastic - it's not too heavy and I really like the neutral fair color match. I apply this foundation using two drops on a flat foundation brush to spread it out. I follow up with Pacifica's cherry matte powder on the T-zone. Please don't stop making this!
Best foundation ever!!
Marce from San Francisco ca
This is the best foundation I have tried. Very light, smells great and it doesn't dry my skin. The color matches my skin perfectly!!
Great clean coverage
Julia from undisclosed
Lightweight and not cakey, but provides near full coverage. Good enough shade match. Nice glow effect without shine. Only issue is that the scent is a little off, but it dissipates fairly quickly. I'm quite satisfied!
Good for skin health, but…
Cassidy from California
It's scented, which is a bit strange for a foundation. It looks very shiny and oily unless I cover my face in loose powder. It's a thin runny consistency. Color is nice though, and it gives light coverage. I like the clean ingredients.
RoRo from NY
This foundation is light and has just the right coverage.
Streaky, watery & does not blend well
Kca from Seattle
Had high hopes because this foundation seemed to check all the boxes in theory and a lot of reviewers love it, but it is super watery, streaky and just does not blend. It seems to sit on top of the skin and any fine lines (I'm almost 40 so this is a problem) are accentuated making me look older. Nope!
Love this foundation!
Amanda S. from Midwest
Love this foundation! Great coverage and matches my skin tone perfectly. I usually add a drop of plant-based squalane to add extra moisture and an all day glow for my dry skin.
Natural miracle unbelievable foundation
Norma jean from California
I love love my beautiful natural miracle unbelievable foundation. I have such a beautiful glow before I put my translucent powder on. I did get 3 colors that I blend. I actually could just use the one; but I bring out my yellow golden tones with the other 2 colors. Its such a perfect match. A little bit goes a long way. I was using to much the first few times I used it. It's amazing how natural this foundation is that's medium to full coverage.
My favorite foundation
Pacificalover from San Diego , CA
This is the BEST. For a light weight , dewy foundation that smells clean and actually covers my imperfections. This is my favorite every-day foundation. It is moisturizing and doesn't settle into pores or lines.
Alight is lit !
Jodi from undisclosed
I was very impressed with this foundation. I was looking for a more affordable option to Jane Iredale for my sensitive skin. This did not disappoint, from the glass bottle to the coverage. No breakouts either. The foundation feels more like a tinted moisturizer and the coverage is perfect for me. It does have a nice " glow" so Ican see why it's called alight. Great product.

I'll never find a perfect foundation, but I like this one. I always exfoliate and moisturize well before applying color corrector and then this foundation. It's not heavy and looks natural while evening skin tone. I finish with a setting spray dew mist and it lasts.
My new holy grail

I absolutely love it. Easy to blend, wears beautifully. Stays on my face all day. I've been recommending it to everyone. Delivery time was late but worth it.

Great coverage and texture
Kiri from Ca.
This is the best foundation that covers age spots! Great for when you lose your tan from summer.
T.E.K. from Tyler, TX
Great foundation. Lightweight, helps with my redness, light/medium to full coverage buildable, you don't have to use a lot so it lasts a long time. Definitely purchasing again and recommending to friends.
lyndic1 from undisclosed
I really like this foundation. I've been using it for over a year, it's not too heavy and doesn't feel cakey on my face. Sometimes I will mix it with my moisturizer for an even lighter application and use a brush to apply it.
Pacifica Alight Foundation
yelia2 from undisclosed
I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation! It wears incredibly well, looks skin like, it's a thinner formula but it still covers a lot. I would say the only con for me is the scent, something about the scent of this is just not it for me. Fortunately, that scent doesn't linger on the face, so I really only need to hold my breath when applying.
Pretty but not long lasting
KylieFM from Huntington Beach, CA
This foundation looks beautiful and radiant. A little goes a long way. My only problem with it is that it does not wear well… after a few hours it looks powdery and settles into creases and pores. Would recommend for short use but not if you're wearing it all day to a job etc.
Laura L from Cleveland, OH
Product is a bit more watery than I expected. But the shade matches well, and I like it overall.
Wish it would blend better
Anya from Santa Clarita, CA
At my age I use a few serums under my moisturizer so when I applied the foundation it kind of smeared and sat there without blending as much as I'd like. It was a good color match for me, it just needs to not pearl up and blend better
Curlyhair from Clarksville TN
Lightweight but great, buildable, coverage. Not greasy at all!
Great dewy foundation
cmslightolive from TX
This is a great full-medium coverage dewy foundation. It's super-moisturizing. If you want a matte finish, try it on top of a mattifying primer. I also love the shade range. The lightest shades are very light. Also, it's hard to find good olive undertone foundations if you're very light, but this foundation has amazing undertones.

I bought two to create my skin tone, which works great. I'd say after after about a month it got dry and cakey
