Product Review: Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation, B+

Monday came way to fast, didn't it?! Oh well - it's time for a product review!

If you're like me, you get positively giddy over the samples from an online Sephora order. I love me some samples. A while back I choose a sample of Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation.

At the time I didn't know too much about Perricone or their products - but, damn Gina, the full size foundation is pricey. $50 per ounce, son. I will say, though, you don't need much at all!
N.V. Perricone at ShopStyle

Details from Sephora:

What it is:
An age-fighting makeup that provides natural coverage and nonchemical SPF 30 protection.

What it is formulated to do:
Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation offers translucent coverage allowing the natural health and glow of skin to shine through while protecting the complexion against damaging UV rays. It works to correct skin undertones and offers all-day moisture, providing an even, dewy finish. A dose of specially treated pigments, blended with light diffusing mica, instantly soften the look of lines, wrinkles, and pores, creating a flawlessly radiant look.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

What else you need to know:
This formula includes antiaging actives, DMAE and Alpha Lipoic Acid, which help to firm skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time.

My review:

The Good: The coverage is akin to a light, tinted moisturizer. And it really does cover nicely without sitting on the skin. Plus, there are so many good-for-your-skin nutrients packed into this moisturizer, it's hard to hate.

The Bad: $50 for 1 oz. *whistles*

The Verdict: B+ I really like the product, the intentions and the overall result. The price, however, holds me back from buying it up in a snap, though!
