        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!

    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 love this foundation! I actually think its better than any other I've tried so far. Super lightweight and covers like a dream. I guess it wouldn't be great for someone with a lot of acne though since its a very lightweight formula. I have pretty decent skin with rare breakouts and I think it's the perfect amount of coverage. I usually like a "natural" looking foundation, and don't typically go for super full coverage. I would say this is between a light and medium coverage. But just the fluidity of this stuff is awesome! You only need a few drops to do an entire face. Awesome stuff, seriously.

    OK now my ONLY con for this product is the bottle. I am about halfway through the bottle (I'd say the bottle is maybe 4 months old) and am now noticing that the black rubber dropper is starting to deteriorate! I was putting on my makeup and looked down and my hands were all black! I first thought that my eyeliner had leaked, but it hadn't. I then picked up the bottle of this and noticed the soft black rubber dropper was rubbing off on my hands. My hands weren't wet, and I keep my bottles in a dry medicine cabinet. No idea why its happening but super frustrating when your hands are covered in black soot. It also transfers really easy... Like onto your face. So maybe be careful not to touch your face right after dispensing product with the dropper... Or check your hands first!

        Comments about No Foundation Foundation Serum:

        This product was my absolute favorite! Then for a long time it was out of stock and just recently was available for order. I was so happy it was back, but I feel like they changed the color a bit. It used to blend seamlessly with my skin tone and now I think it's darker and a bit orange-y. I notice that when I wear it there is a big difference between my face and neck color and when I ask people they say I do look a little orange-y. I'm SO sad. I don't even think I will finish the bottle, but will need to find something else.

          I love this product I've been using this for a few years now I am a male and uses the serum as my male grooming routine for a undetectable natural finish. As a make up artist on working with clients I would love to see the serum one day be in a range of shades . But I have to say that this last all day and gives you a nice natural finish and coverage and I love the sun protection that it gives me.

            Comments about No Foundation Foundation Serum:

            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.

                    I have been using PerriconeMD products for years now, I love the lightweight and effectiveness of the Perricone Makeup and couldn't live without my No Foundation Foundation Serum. I had already gone through several bottles and recently ran out, I bought a new bottle this week and put it on as usual, before my no makeup blush, and highlighter. After about 4 hours, my eyes started to become extremely itchy and my eyelids started to swell up. It's been three days and irritation is still very visible underneath my eye area.
