    • Daily Use

    Best foundation I've found. Looks like skin (even in daylight). Easy to apply. Lightweight but buildable. Feels comfortable on. I have normal skin with an oily forehead. This foundation limits the shine!
    I'm not sure why others are having issues with this foundation. Might be the way thet apply it? Don't use an ordinary foundation brush; use a buffing or stippling brush. Works wonders (I use the Clinique buffing foundation brush; it blends incredibly well).

    Finally a foundation that matches my skin tone!

      I have spent the last ten years trying to find a foundation that is pale enough, and I finally found it. Level zero is a perfect match. If you are super pale, you should try this foundation.

      As to the formulation- it is lightweight foundation that I plan to wear daily. It's fab. My only criticism is that it is quite drying. But then again I have very dry skin. If you have normal or oily skin, this foundation should be perfect for you. It would be a five star product if Paula could release a dewier version of this foundation.

      Looks like perfect skin

        Best Uses

          Despite some negative reviews, I decided to purchase this product (I'm a long-time PC customer and I haven't been let down yet) - and I'm so happy I did. I love this foundation – it looks like perfect skin, as opposed to perfect foundation. I dot it on the back of my hand and use a foundation brush – it applies beautifully, blends effortlessly and the finish is natural and flawless. The best part is it still looks as good at the end of the day as it does at the start. My opinion of this foundation was validated when a colleague grabbed me and said 'Your skin looks magnificent' and demanded to know what I was using!

          Pros

          • Good colour match
          • Very matte

          Cons

          • Dry overall feel
          • Heavy
          • Streaky

          Best Uses

            Like many of the other reviewers I was disappointed with the fast drying, streaky finish I got when applying this product. I would wash it off and use something else as it looks so unnatural. And the overall texture and feel of the foundation on my face is heavy and unpleasant. Perhaps it's suited to those with less dry skin than I have. I will try the suggestions of some of the reviews to mix it with moisturiser and apply in smaller amounts and see how I go. This is my first big disappointment with Paula's products. :( I think a more in-depth description of how best to apply the product would be handy - it seems there's a knack to getting it right (which wasn't the case with the previous foundations).

            Very yellow tone despite the description.

            Verified Reviewer

            I love all the other products but can't recommend this one, I brought the level 3 based on the description of light beige with peaches and cream undertone that I thought would match my skin tone, but it is very yellow and I can't use it. Unfortunately I didn't try it out until after the 60 days or it would have been sent back. PC should offer a sample of these so that you can check the tone, or maybe foundation needs to be a try before you buy purchase.

            Disappointed long-time customer

            By Mel

            from Australia

            Verified Reviewer

            I find this foundation very difficult to apply and I don't think I've mastered it yet. It doesn't look smooth and after a few hours it looks even more patchy. It lies around the eye's and accentuates the eye wrinkles making me look older.

            The Level 2 colour match that was recommended is actually lighter than the Best Linen from my Best Face Forward Foundation. I still prefer this foundation even though I was looking for a foundation with more coverage.

            There must be some ingredient that irritates my eyes and makes them water. This also happened in the previous RESIST Foundation product. Other than the eye irritation, it then leaves white chalky marks around my eyes where they've watered.

            This is not the foundation for me. I've always been an advocate for Paula's Choice products but I can't recommend this one.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt and efficient as always.

              Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Level 0:

              This is the best foundation base I have ever used, I've been a PC customer for 5+years. Some reviews people have mentioned the application is difficult as it is very matte. I assume the formulation is designed to cover spf (which can be sometimes leave some shine). Simply blend one pump of this with super light daily wrinkle defense and you will have plenty of time to blend. I'm an international flight attendant with normal/oily skin and I can go a 14 hour flight with no touch ups or shine. Simply natural flawless finish, perfect! Give it a go! 5 star thank you Paula :)

              Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Level 0:

              I actually really like this foundation and use it daily.

              I have found that the best way to apply it for me is to pop a few dots of it around my face (after applying Hourglass oil-free mineral primer and leaving a minute or two) and then work in with a foundation brush - this way it blends in really well and has good lasting power. I don't think I would be as happy if I was just using fingers. I put some translucent powder along my T-zone and then I am done as far as my foundation goes.

              I live in subtropical Australia and my skin is really quite sun damaged and very sensitive so I am thrilled to find a foundation that suits me and copes with my combination skin without emphasising my lines or causing breakouts. So, for my skin and in my climate, I have found this foundation to be great.

              Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Serum Foundation - Level 0:

              If you can apply it successfully, it gives a smooth matte finish and looks great. However, it is so difficult to apply that you will look streaky and patchy unless you take great pains to even it out. It dries almost instantly so I finally worked out that I have the best success if I apply it in very small amounts. If I put too much on my skin at once, there will be a large patch or streak where the initial makeup was. This leads to excessive rubbing and pulling on the skin or just washing it off to start over again - which is never an option for me. Also, if it comes in contact with a place on my face that either has too much product underneath (moisturizer, primer) or product that hasn't completely dried, it will create a globby spot that looks awful and rubbing it creates a waxy crayon effect. I had to go out last night without advance warning and noticed that my skin was looking dry and flakey and imperfections I don't normally see were very noticeable. I was planning to persevere with this because the anti-ageing benefits sounded so great but, reading my own review, I think I may just send it back.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was very quick (as always) and the product was well packaged.

                When the "All Bases Covered" foundation was discontinued a great new line was promised. I waited to order this one but I'm am unimpressed. I tried it on three occasions, applied as directed over PC sunscreen. It sits on top of the skin and the finish is so matte it accentuates fine lines, settles into any creases around the eyes and is quite aging. This foundation transferred easily, leaving residue on my phone and a patchy coverage after a few hours. I didn't like the texture to apply and it's not a natural looking coverage.
