Great for highlighting by MicheMoffatt
(Posted on 10/02/2015)
I bought this to use for highlighting - I use skin base 7 (my match) and use this under eyes down nose etc/ it's amazing........ Although I feel it's a lot dryer than the number 7 skin base shade- slightly dryer formula. It is gorgeous though, and stays put all day! Flawless looking skin with this, and hides fine lines under eyes amazingly! Totally worth the money, and a little goes a long way! Totally recommend this!
Far superior to MAC and Estée lauder products I've used in the past.
Feels so light, doesn't cake- worth a buy!
Pale enough for my skin and not too pink or yellow leaning! by Megan
(Posted on 15/12/2014)
I am very pale with neutral undertones and so trying to get foundation is a nightmare but this is great. It goes with my skin very well. Primer everytime is a must for this to go on flawlessly. Seems okay on it's on but after a few hours you'll see the mess it becomes without a primer. With primer it stays on for hours and hours and never separates or cakes up. I use RF115 as well. I use MUA £3 primer and it does the job!
Lovely colour...shame about it's lasting power by Chelsea
(Posted on 08/08/2014)
Don't get me wrong, I love this foundation. The colour is perfect for me and I like how buildable it is, but it just doesn't seem to stay on my skin. The lightest touch with my fingers removes huge patches of it even with a good load of powder and it's completely gone after a couple of hours out. For the price, I think it should last on skin a lot longer.
It also seems to oxidize a lot faster than any other foundations I've used.
New Holy Grail by Teagsss

Finally after about 8 years of searching for the right shade for my extremely pale, pink undertone and freckly skin, I have found my saving grace. I went to Myer in Sydney, Australia and was matched a 2, but mixed a little Rich Liquid Foundation in 'white' with this shade and it was PERFECT. I didn't even have to blend it down my neck. I also purchased Hollow to use as a contour, also because I felt it matched my paleness perfectly. I'm so pleased with the longevity and coverage I get out of it and I'm sold! I only wish I found Illamasqua sooner.
Finally!! by Emily
(Posted on 14/05/2014)
This foundation is amazing! I've been searching for the right shade for 6 years now and this is it! I'm so pale it's practically impossible to match my skin but this is perfect. I mix it with the sculpting powder duo to add definition. Stays on my face all day and the tube is endless! I also have an aggressive skin condition and it covers my pigmentation in my skin but still allows it to breathe! Amazing stuff :)

Amazing! by Pale and Interesting
(Posted on 29/04/2014)
I've been searching for sooo long to get a foundation which matches my skintone as I'm very pale, and finally I have one! I mix it with the 3.5 to make it a little warmer when the sun comes out!
If only there was a yellow based one! by Witchy
(Posted on 26/03/2014)
I've been looking honestly EVERYWHERE for a foundation that has good coverage and is pale enough for my skin. Every foundation I have tried has been way too pink for my skin and it's very frustrating!
I have been recommended this foundation so many times and it looks amazing on my friends! But unfortunately it's pink based :-(
Looks like I'll have to stick with wearing pure white foundation.
The tube last forever by Gretel
(Posted on 11/02/2014)
Well, I received my foundation in shade 2 on november 2012 and I still use the same tube now ^^' It's like there's a blackhole at the bottom of the tube, it's endless, I can't finish it...
Perfection in a bottle by Haley
(Posted on 07/02/2014)
I'd looked around forever for a foundation that perfectly matched my skintone, until I found this one. Sure, it's a bit costly, but it works wonders. The formula is pretty much perfect. It feels amazing on my skin and has a nice matte finish, depending on the base you use with it. It perfectly balances my skintone and is quite long lasting with wear.
Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.
Fabulous by Lyn McKenzie MUA
(Posted on 30/01/2014)
Love skin base, have 7 shades in my kit which cover all clients either on their own or by mixing them. The coverage is great, very long wearing, natural and buildable. My clients love how light and natural it feels on and how flawless their skin looks. Love it!!
Love it! by Erica
(Posted on 28/12/2013)
After trying a million foundations from a million different brands I finally found one pale enough to match my skin! Great coverage and it lasts for ages as well
Great product but would love even more if there was a neutral shade by Hannah
(Posted on 24/10/2013)
I bought this product because of course Illamasqua is my favourite brand and this shade initially looked like it would be the perfect colour. Like everyone else I have tried most brands and found the lightest shades being either too pink or too yellow. Although I do think this is a little on the pink side, and have to mix it with another foundation to cancel out the redness, I would still re-buy as it makes my skin look so healthy and glowy and i always get complimemted. Coverage is great and long lasting, with a little bit going a long way. Perhaps a jar would be better so you don't miss out on the last bit of product due to it being a squeeze bottle (or you could just cut off the end like my grandma does!) I would also say this would suit any age as my mum and I both use it (ages 44 and 22) and looks the same on both skin textures.
Would highly recommend
Too light for my skin by Imogen
(Posted on 22/10/2013)
I got colour matched to number 2 and when it's on, it's still too light for my skin but I have to say that it has great coverage over the face and it covers all areas and stays in place all day....really happy with the coverage, just need it to be a darker shade
Wow! Just what I've been looking for! by Holly
(Posted on 24/08/2013)
I have looked everywhere for a foundation that matches my natural skin tone. I'm very pale, and have been told by plenty of other makeup counters and stores that my skin colour is far too light for any of their shades - until I went to Illamasqua! The girl at the counter was so professional and was more than happy to help me pick the right shade for me; I picked up SB02 and the Hydra Veil straight away and I'm so glad I did. Expensive, but so very worth it as a little dab gives you a lot of coverage. I went to the only store they have in Scotland, and will not regret purchasing this at all.
Awesome! by Emilia
(Posted on 02/06/2013)
Finally a foundation that is pink enough to match my skintone. The 02 is the perfect match!
Shade 2 by Gabby
(Posted on 20/05/2013)
I find Shade 2 good for my skin its perfectly light but its too pink. I have to mix it with the porcelain colour foundation from the natural colection to get it my colour also the set of foundation and primer you have is not to good either Please make a natural pale foundation. I'm very pale so its hard to find a good foundation. Btw i posted this by accident earlier on shade 4.
Best foundation ever by Em
(Posted on 02/05/2013)
I have looked everywhere for a foundation which compliments my skin tone. I used to use MAC but their lightest foundation still wasn't light enough. I then found Illamasqua and fell in love. The woman at the counter in Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield was really helpful and helped me with choosing the perfect shade. I'd recommend Illamasqua to anyone. Expensive but totally worth it.
Perfect by Rachel

This really is a necessity to my life. Lightweight with great coverage and perfect for pale gals! Honestly makes my skin look airbrushed!
Amazing by Lauren
(Posted on 05/04/2013)
This foundation is the perfect colour! I always find it so hard to get something that's pale enough for me. It feels lightweight , smooth and you can also build it up. Great value!
love it but does need a more neutral shade by miniholly
(Posted on 24/02/2013)
I love this foundation looks really nice on my combination skin and get so many compliments on how lovely my skin looks definitely the best foundation I have ever used, however I do agree there should be a neutral shade, I wear shade 2 as it is the best match as 3 is far too yellow but I think something with a neutral undertone would be a perfect match for me. Would love to see a 2.5 :)
perfect. by Amy
(Posted on 06/01/2013)
This is the perfect shade for me! I love my paleness but it hard finding a foundation that will match. The only thing is I don't think that it is worth £27 considering the size of the bottle.
Brilliant! by Rach
(Posted on 15/11/2012)
After months of foundation hunting, I finally found this: the perfect pale shade that doesn't look chalky, dirty or washed out. The pink-neutral base gives it a gorgeous fresh look. I have combination-oily skin and find this pretty good for my whole face. However, it is very pigmented, so the colour does tend to settle into dry/flaky areas, so make sure you moisturise/prime properly first. I use the Matt Primer on my t-zone and a generic moisturising primer on my cheeks and it balances out pretty well. Lasting power is also good-- all day wear is easily achieved with a light dusting of powder over oilier areas. I grabbed mine just after the price drop here in Australia, and it's definitely worth the price (for reference, it now sells for $41 AUD, comparably to L'Oreal or more expensive Revlon foundations).

This is a fairly good foundation for fair skinned people like myself, but it is not worth the price it asks for
We need pale neutral shade by Mimiko
(Posted on 03/08/2012)
This foundation misses pale neutral shade. Shade 02 is pale enough but it is pink based so I can't use it. :/
