The Illamasqua Skin Base foundation was something I had wanted to try out for a long time. Some years ago it received quite a bit of hype as did the brand's blushes. I think the main reason due to it not receiving as much hype as earlier, is that Illamasqua isn't available in the US stores anymore, which is a shame. Based on this product I am eager to try out more from the …Read more

I'm writing about Illamasqua's white skin base mixer.

This is a lovely product, it's creamy and relatively densely pigmented and a nice ivory colour. As it's so pigmented, a couple drops is all you need to seamlessly lighten any foundation you mix with this, helping lessen any impact this might have on the finish. I've never used it by itself so I can't …

I like how full coverage this foundation is; I have a bit of redness on my cheeks and forehead and it covered up everything seamlessly and smoothly. I also found it not to be drying, which is a big plus in my book because I have extremely dry skin. Also, for me it wore really well through 12 hours +, so it's definitely long-wearing.

One warning I have to give about this foundation …

Actual rating is 3.5 stars, but I am rounding up because I love the color. I don't really love this foundation much on its own on my combo skin because it can break up quickly on oilier areas, but it is an excellent mix-in for foundations that are too dry or too dark. It takes bad foundations and makes them softer, more natural looking, and more flattering on my skin. When I tried it alone I …Read more

Only used this a few times but really like it. Very easy to apply and blend, no cakeyness at all. Also, I am 61 so my skin is probably a bit dry. I applied moisturiser some hours before applying this foundation and still found it went on very easily. Seems to be almost matte at first but later appears to be a very attractive and natural dewy look, but dewy is the wrong word as its not quite …Read more

I love this foundation but just wish it had slightly more coverage and staying power. The different shades are amazing, and I do think I have a great match for my skin tone (6.5) but I find myself putting concealer on or applying more foundation by late afternoon.
I love the Illamasqua values so this is always my go-to brand for any kind of make-up, and will happily pay a bit more knowing …

Do not get if you have sensitive skin. Low quality. Bought it as a present and looked like a fool. Cheers

Wanted to love this product for my sensitive skin. I was looking for foundation to replace YSL which was discontinued and which left mu dry sometimes patchy skin with a radiant glow. I liked it when I applied it but when I went out in daylight noticed it was already settling in fine lines and pores. By lunchtine I could see it caking around dry patches on chin and nose and I started to look pasty …Read more

This is the one foundation I continue to buy. I love the way it feels on my skin, it's easy to apply and the colour range is great. It gives me a beautiful finish and is buildable. It doesn't easily transfer.

Not my HG but my first foundation purchase after switching to cruelty free (from MAC) and I like it. Needs to be paired with a different primer though, their one is crap. The coverage is great and it feels comfortable. Only negative would be it could last longer but it agreed with my skin!
