Perricone MD are famous for their amazing skincare. So when I got a package from them containing their No Makeup makeup line. It is safe to say that I was more than surprised. I actually did note even know that they carried makeup products. A very simple makeup collection made to look like you aren’t wearing makeup when you are. We have everything from foundation to eyeshadows in the collection. And majority of the products are liquid products. But with a starting price of $30 for products, are the products worth the money?

The foundation only comes in 5 shades. With that being said I think it is time to develop some more shades. The packaging makes the foundation look a lot lighter than it actually is. And while I’m usually a light to medium or medium in my regular foundations. For some reason fair to light was my perfect shade with the no makeup foundation. Perricone MD states the following about the product on their website.
The only foundation that combines the proven results of Perricone MD science with a natural-looking, buildable no-makeup texture and finish. Scientifically formulated with ALPHA LIPOIC ACID, No Makeup Foundation minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores over time.
The formula of the foundation is extremely light and a true liquid foundation. I experienced that I used a lot of product when applying with a beauty blender. I did not try any other application methods but would assume a silicone base might minimize product usage. The foundation did however look absolutely stunning. It evened out my skin tone but at the same time it did look like my skin. It minimized the pores somewhat but they were still visible. I would rate this product 4/5. The missing rate for the lack of shades and the fact that so much product had to be used. Overall I absolutely love the foundation and how it looks on my skin.
Perricone MD No Makeup Concealer $35 – I didn’t really get a chance to try the concealer. It had a very foul smell. Not sure if this is normal but the expiration dates on the concealers were towards the end of 2019. I could simply not take the smell of the product so I opted out from using it at all. I really love the blush and the bronzer. It gives you a natural finish without being too much and the liquid formula blends out effortlessly with everything else.
