Look cute and fresh while traveling with Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation

When you're traveling, the last thing you want to have to take along heavy paint foundations that you paint on with a brush. Certainly, you don't want to sleep with all of that on during a long haul flight. But, you might be protesting about going all of that time without a stitch of coverage. After all, you never know who might be sitting in Business or First Class! You're not the only one who feels that way . . . many, many celebrities asked Dr. Nicholas Perricone to create something for them that brought life, not a plaster-like mask to their face. I was very glad to be hosted to experience No Foundation Foundation!

It's the first advanced anti-aging, multi-tasking translucent foundation with non-chemical SPF 30 protection. With Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE, and Vitamin C Ester.

It comes in a little bottle that's sized to fit in a 3-1-1 bag, with a pump packed in the box separately. So, you know it's not going to splurt all over your things while on the go.

I tried the regular color. I have what cosmeticians call "fairly light" skin. While the foundation looked a little dark being pumped out of the bottle, I was surprised how well it blended into my coloring, very forgiving. Granted, if you're paper white, you might prefer the "fair" blend.

Especially after you've moisturized your face -- and you have moisturized your face, haven't you? -- you'll notice the foundation has a glossy texture. It's got the glow you want, but without sparkly particles. Because it's sheer, you could apply it just with your fingers . . . you won't notice lines of demarcation. Plus, it's nourishing at the same time. You can build coverage a bit if you want to.

Even not on an airplane, this product has a lot to recommend it. When you're jet-lagged, have to be down in the lobby of your hotel within minutes for a tour or meeting, you want a no-brainer to look presentable. You want it to take seconds to look presentable and charming!
