One of the worst foundations I have ever bought. It's over priced, terrible on your skin and doesn't even last that long. My skin is quite dry, but I use a lot of moisturizing products and is usually not noticeable until I used this foundation. It caked around all the dry patches on my face, making it look far worse than it was and then after about an hour or two of wear, my skin looked terrible worse than it would have been without makeup.
The only good thing was the colour matched well to my pale, pinky complection, but otherwise it's a horrible product.

This is the worst foundation I have ever used! It's so difficult to apply as it's so thick I tried with a brush, blender it wouldn't move! ( and I did apply a moisturiser and primer before applying.) due to having dry skin it made my dry patches stand out making my skin look awful. And not just that I reacted to this foundation as it gave me eczema on my cheek! And iv never had eczema before ever anywhere lol If you dry skin I would not purchase.

I found the formula too thick and mask-like. I am not the Phantom of the Opera. I couldn't get it to blend or look natural. I was like, "Gurl, you ain't foolin' nobody." I had to wash it off, and ain't nobody got time for that.

I ordered this foundation as wanted to try out for ages. Recommendation of equivalent to nc37 was number 233. When u received the colour isn't as yellow as the mac and can look a bit orange on my skin so I'll need to tan up again. The coverage is amazing tho and my skin looked flawless. It did oxidise slightly on my skin and went patchy on my forehead but I think that's because I applied too much skin oil and moisturiser. I would def buy again but try a slightly lighter shade next time :) I apply over primer with a sigma f60 brush and stipple on then I use my sponge to press into the skin. No go for girls who like light coverage although mix with a tinted moisturiser for less cover x

im shocked by so many negative reviews yes its very dry and matte but dont you use moisturiser? i love this i done a lot or research and on a trip away decided to approach the counter its very full coverage... like iv said in other reviews im not a MUA im just a normal girl who wants a good damn covering foundation, and this ticks all the boxes it stays doesnt go anywhere i found it hard matching the colours i have estee lauder and this is cheaper than that by at least 10 pounds... and this is better i nearly bought the skin base foundation but after reading reviews im glad i didnt... illamasqua deserves more than a score of 3.6 just stop whinging and put a bit more moisturiser on

:::NOTE::: If you have BLEMISHED skin or DRY skin patches, I would NOT recommend this foundation. This foundation is very dry in texture and it clings to blemishes and patches of dry skin, accentuating the imperfections. This foundation is GREAT for those who have a lot of discoloration on their skin,but no other major skin issues.
I have Combination skin(that is acne prone), with occasional dry patches on my cheeks or around my mouth and a few pimples once in a while.
I used to use this foundation every day for about 2 years straight.
I would basically make my own tinted moisturizer with it. I would put a couple of pumps of moisturizer and add a bit of this foundation according to how much coverage I wanted that day.
Needless to say, this foundation is super full coverage on its own----like theatrical makeup full coverage. Sometimes I would use it as a concealer because it's that full coverage.
The packaging is OKAY....not the best, not the worst. Once the product, starts running low on foundation, it becomes hard to take the foundation out. However, in the past I have cut the tube in half and have gotten many more uses out of this product.
This is an expensive foundation,but it does last a while considering you don't need to use a lot of it. Plus it has a pretty good color selection and it does NOT break me out. And I have repurchased this foundation numerous times.
The reason I no longer reach for this foundation is because on its own(without moisturizer) it can look cakey or mask like and you need to really work on buffing this foundation into your skin to make it look good. Also, I have some peach fuzz and this accentuates those baby hairs on my face.
Overall, this is the first foundation that I fell in love with. And if you can make it work, this does look gorgeous on the skin.

I was so disappointed with this foundation. I couldn't get it to work for me. When I put it on it just looked like a mask and clinged to any dry patches. I'll admit this may be my fault as I may be applying it wrong. I tried with my beauty blender and with fingers, no joy.

I really love his foundation because coverage is amazing and gives you an air brushed look. However it is a really think cream an texture and is quite annoying and difficult to apply to the face. That's only thing I really have to complain about. I got it at a great deal because it was on sale!

I love this foundations full coverage and pale white shades but its VERY drying. It looks extremely cakey on its own, i have to mix it with Macs studio sculpt foundation & a moisturizing BB cream to make it wearable.

I have been using Estée L Double Wear fresco mixed with shell for the past fifteen years. They have changed the colours and formulation so I am in the market for a new foundation. I like medium to full coverage in paler colours with pink undertones. The lady at Illamasqua gave me 120. Colour seemed fine. I can't express how disappointed I am with this foundation! Yes, it's very highly pigmented and extremely full coverage but it has no staying power. My skin is fair, freckly, pinkish and combination. I've never loved the tone of my skin but its in very good condition. I applied it after moisturiser and primer as I would with any foundation. I didn't find it difficult to blend and liked the effect initially. However, after one hour, yes one hour! the product was breaking down on my skin, becoming patchy and oxidising. It fell into all of the fine lines around my eyes and mouth and looked horrendous on my nose. As disappointed as I am with EL for messing with double wear it still out performs this by a million percent. Just remember that full coverage doesn't necessarily mean it is durable. This certainly is not.
