I really wanted to like this makeup! I decided to trial the Liquid Silk Foundation (matte) by purchasing a trio pack with the colours Vanilla, Vienna and Mocha. I am very fair, blonde, green eyes, combination skin with some redness and according to the website Vanilla should be the ideal colour. I usually wear Clinique Alabaster as my perfect match. Vanilla... Egads! It was surprisingly dark. Orangey/yellow in tone, looked like I had an accident with a fake tan bottle. Hard to explain. I did take photos. It looked terrible. I looked like one of the girls from Snog Marry Avoid before the makeunder. One side of my face I used Vanilla, the other Vienna, so I could see the difference. Vienna, although meant to be for medium skin tone, was lighter and was closer to my natural skin tone compared to the Vanilla, but it was still quite a warm beige, so unfortunately this colour also didn't quite suit me. I also trialed the Mirenesse CC Hydro Mouse in Vanilla, this is completely different to the Liquid Silk Vanilla - much lighter in colour, too light for me. Made me look a bit ghosty. I liked the powder finish feel though. Surprised me that the same 'colour' in the different foundations could be soooo different. I still gave this product 3 stars because the texture and way the product felt on the skin was really nice. It covered well, medium coverage, buildable. If you can colour match the limited range then it may work for you - I would suggest doing what I did though and get a sample before investing in this makeup!
