Love this foundation
This is one of my favourites, it looks so natural yet gives very good coverage. The shades are so varied and so long as you get colour matched first you'll be amazed at how close they are to your own colour. I have very oily skin but this is very good, probably the best at keeping the shine away for the longest period, though I guess quite expensive.
Based on good web reviews, I took a chance with this foundation and bought it without being able to try it in the London stores. I was delighted as soon as I recieved it and tried it on. Cute packaging and easy to squeeze as little or as much as required. Only needed a centimetre line to give a decent coverage, so this tube will last me a while. Glides on easy with a nice moisturiser and/or primer underneath. Provides a second skin like coverage and really helps hide nasty red of any pimples. Doesn't dry out the skin or collect in any lines which is my issue with so many other foundations I've tried especially as I'm in my 40s when heavy foundations just makes the skin look worse. Skin looked the most flawless its been in ages!
I bought this foundation knowing what colour i needed as i did a test out in store but when i got it home it was slightly dark. Beside that, the foundation is wonderful. I do think you need a good stippling brush to apply it on with as that then results in a flawless finish.
I love it
I used this foundation last summer when I had a tan and gave up on it when the colour - number 9 - became so dark it gave me a tide line. It also used to make me slightly sheeny (not shiny) by the end of the day. Since then I have used Mac (which made my skin horrendous) and No.7. I went back to Illamasqua and had my colour matched again, I'm now using 6.5. I love it. It makes my skin look so healthy and I've learned to use loose translucent powder to set it, which not only stops me from going sheeny but also makes blusher go on more smoothly. I bought the concealer too, which I use where I need more coverage to prevent me from plastering Skin Base all over. Illamasqua is such a good brand, I really trust all the products.
could be a bit better coverage
on YouTube, this is a hype. everyone loves it and so do i! i would use this when my skin was good but it doesn't have VERY good coverage. over all it is a great product and to me it was very light and dewy, i like it. unfortunately, i think that there are cheaper alternatives that do the same thing. -aimed at debenhams- i love debenhams and i come here whenever i have a beauty crisis. I LOVE IT!!! but, i thing it would be appreciated largely if they were to sell more brands that are hard to come by here in the uk, such as; INGLOT ( if you have not heard of inglot then you should search them because they are amazing and the quality is as good as some of the bigger named brands and unfortunately there is only ONE in the uk ( westfield stratford, london), makeup forever, shisaedo, jemma kidd. please would debenhams get back to me on the address provided!! thankyou x
I love this foundation! I have very pale skin and have always had trouble finding the perfect foundation max. I bought this in #2 and it is perfect
I use it with the Illamasqua primer which is also fantastic and well worth buying. The combo leave my skin with a luminous dewy finish. That kind of healthy glow without being oily or shiny.
I have tried all of the high end foundations and have not found one with as good a colour match or as high performing as this one. The packaging is a little lame and i can see it being frustrating when the time comes to squeeze the last drop out. Aside of that I am in love.
My HG foundation!!!
I absolutely love this foundation! After spending an absolute fortune on countless high end and drugstore foundations over the years, finding something that perfectly matches my medium dark skin tone (MAC NC41), makes my skin look flawless, dewy and smooth without looking oily, really feels like a miracle to me! Other great things about this foundation are that it doesn't cause breakouts and it doesn't oxidize or make my skin look ashy. I have gotten so many compliments on my "beautiful skin" whenever I wear it. If you have extremely oily skin, just make sure to use an oil blocking base or moisturizer on very hot days. Honestly, it's the best foundation ever! :D
Not for oily skin
I think where Illamasqua have gone wrong with this foundation is to describe it as 'suitable for all skin types.' I'm sure it would be beautiful on a normal to dry skin, but it really doesn't last on my oily/combination skin.
I apply with a BeautyBlender which gives a flawless finish, then set with powder, but no matter how much powder I use within an hour or so my face looks greasy.
I may get this foundation back out in the winter when my skin gets drier, but its most definitely not appropriate for my skin at this time of year.
