Product Details

What It Is

No Makeup 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 Makeup Foundation Serum:

              This was my first Perricone MD purchase and I am so thrilled I tried it! This product is great if you're looking to even out your skin, minimize imperfections, and achieve a natural polished look. I was worried about the universal shade being too dark on my fair/light cool/neutral skintone after watching some YouTube reviews and seeing the product once it arrived. However, after trying to apply it several different ways, I've found that applying per the directions gives the best finish. As for the color, you have to give it time to adjust to your skin in my opinion and make sure you blend well (and skin is properly moisturized before applying). I was afraid it was still a tiny bit dark and tried another foundation....hated the look and went right back to this. I also recently discovered the lightening foundation drops from the body shop. Adding a drop or two helped lighten the color without changing the perfect finish of this product. I think it works on my skin tone with or without adding these though now that I have figured out the product. You just have to play with it and try different things as another reviewer accurately stated. It would be nice to have just a few other shade options but I'm very happy with the look this gives and will continue to purchase. Very nice natural look for maturing skin that can tend to look older with fuller coverage foundations. It truly delivers on giving your skin a no foundation look.

This product gives the skin a beautiful glow, does not crease into fine lines or wrinkles, and feels so lovely on the skin. Thank you Dr. Perricone for your wonderful products!

                    I don't use it every day because it is pricey, but I would if I could afford to.
                    I wish more colors were available, although it fades after application, I still find it a little dark
