Additional Information

Product Details

What It Is

No Foundation Foundation Serum instantly softens imperfections and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and pores with Neuropeptides without settling into fine lines. A luxurious fluid texture leaves a semi-matte suede finish with a breathable second skin effect. This lightweight and elegant formula contains a non-irritating, natural sun screen that protects skin from the age-accelerating rays of the sun. It comes in one universal shade or you can customize to match your skin tone with No Bronzer Bronzer.

What It Does
  • Universal shade delivers a radiant, semi-matte finish that allows for buildable coverage to camouflage visible imperfections.
  • Improves the appearance of firmness and minimizes visible wrinkles and pores.
  • Non-chemical, mineral based broad spectrum SPF 30.

      A:

      Great Question! The No Foundation Foundation Serum is indeed a Matte Finish, I do not see the need for a finishing powder, however you may be accustom to using powder and may feel differently. Give it a try without the powder first :) We do offer a 30day return policy!

      Answered on 2/16/2016 by Customer Care
    • A:

      The finish is semi matte......looks glowing. Does not require any finishing powder if you just want a flawless look that does not creep into lines.Perfect everyday!

I am a makeup artist who has tried every foundation under the sun and can tell you that this foundation is amazing. I have been using it on myself for about 2 years now. Every time I stray away from it and try something new I always end up back with the no foundation foundation serum. It looks just like your skin, except much better! And it wears like a dream, which is hugely important to me. Here's what I have found with this foundation and hope it helps someone either looking to purchase this foundation or have already purchased it and think that they don't like it...
-I have to apply it with my hands. If I apply it with a brush it does not apply nicely for some reason and ends up looking blotchy and uneven. Also, the color matches my skin better when I work it in with my hands. It is a universal shade and can look orangey sometimes, but I've found this helps with that. You waste less product when you use your hands anyway.
-it is very buildable. I apply it once all over my face and then if I feel there are any areas that need more coverage (usually my cheeks) I just put a little more on my fingertips and press it into the area.
-I apply it right after putting on my moisturizer otherwise it can look a little too dry. It has a matte finish, which I love, but I feel naked if I don't apply a finishing powder so this could be why it looks dry on me if I wait too long to apply it.
-the color of your finishing powder makes a big difference in the final color of this foundation. I have found that a translucent powder is the best way to go. I am very pale and this foundation works for me year round. In the winter when I am my pastiest, it gives me healthy color without looking like I'm wearing the wrong color foundation.

Love love love this product. Try it, play with it, figure out how to make it work for your skin and you will love it!

I started with the No Foundation Foundation, but found that as I went through the bottle, the color because darker and more orangey. Although I liked the texture and the way it blended, the color differential made it look obvious after about half a bottle. Then the No Foundation Foundation cam out with a lighter shade, which was much better at retaining its color and not darkening. However, both of the No Foundation Foundations are a little shiny, and I live in a hot climate where shine is intensified. Then I tried the No Foundation Serum. It was little less coverage than the No Foundation Foundation, but dried more matte, so the finish was perfect. Unfortunately, like the No Foundation Foundation, over time the color in the bottle darkens and becomes sadly obvious. I stopped buying it. If Perricone made a lighter shade of the serum, like it does for the Foundation, I'd be back immediately, but for now, I have a hard time recommending it due to the obvious color shift over time. If you wanted to try it, I would recommend the tiny bottles, as there's less time for it to turn dark before it's all used.

        Comments about No Foundation Foundation Serum:

        I have a combinaison skin, oily on the T-zone by lunch and dislike the feeling of makeup (heavy and pore obstruction feeling). With the no makeup line, I have found my compromise :)

        First, I prime my skin with the "No Makeup Instant Blur", which gives you the perfect smooth canvas to apply makeup;
        Second, I apply some drops of the "No foundation foundation serum" and either spread it around with my fingers or a Morphee brush (blend easily and buildable);
        Third, I set it with the instant blur or a light setting powder (I use Kevin Aucoin).

        In the past, I was only interested in BB cream, as they are light and more about the skincare then cake on makeup making your skin worst than it already is. However, since I tried the "No foundation foundation Serum", I would not keep on looking for anything else! It is light weight, natural looking, non greasy and doesn't give me break-outs which I usually get after a day wearing makeup.

        The difference I found between the "No foundation foundation" and the "No Foundation Foundation Serum", is that the "no foundation foundation" is slightly heavier, and oily/dewy, which might suit better dry skins.

              I have extremely sensitive skin and until I found this product I was forced to chase the shade.
              This is the only sun block that does not cause uncomfortable rashes, enlarged pores or whiteheads when applied to my hyper reactive skin.
              I absolutely love the no foundation foundation and the blush and highlighting no makeup makeup.
              For the first time ever I am able to acheive a polished flawless look. The best part is that when I remove my makeup my skin is still smooth, soft and hydrated. This product feels more like a beauty treatment than it does makeup.
              LOVE IT!!
