Fabulous foundation. Great coverage with a little going a long way.
I get a lot of compliments about my foundation. I recommend getting the Illamasqua team to colour match as they provide a large variety of shades.

I've used skin base for nearly 3 years now. The foundation lasts well during the day which is something of a must. This foundation is perfect for my skin as I suffer from eczema mainly around my face. Working as a beauty therapist and recommend this to everyone, I've changed people from double wear by estee launder to skin base.

This is the ONLY foundation that matches my skin tone. I have a very pale skin but with yellow undertones and this is the best colour match. Coverage can be light or heavy depending on what my hormones are deciding to do to my face on any given day. It stays on well too. Price is reasonable for a good quality product and for me, a bottle lasts about 6 months. And cruelty free too! Can't fault it!

Gorgeous, my favorite foundation by far. Finally have the right colour for my skin, as last shopped in the Cardiff store before I came to New Zealand and even though I had a skin match, the lady on counter gave me shade 9 when I'm actually shade 4.5!
Now I don't have to mix 3 different foundations so my product didn't go to waste!
Horrah!

Best foundation I've ever used
For the past few months I've been trialing loads of different foundations from different brands, trying to find the perfect foundation to use as my staple in my professional kit but none seemed to have that HD, real looking, long lasting, good coverage quality to them. I've always been a fan of illamasqua, so when I was in your liverpool store this month, I got a sample of this foundation and my god...this is the holy grail foundation. Its everything Ive been looking for, so I didnt hesitate and bought six for my kit and to anyone reading this, you shouldnt hesitate either, this product is brilliant.

Photoshop in a Bottle
This was my first 'high end' foundation and I've honestly never looked back. I had a colour-match instore (amazing staff btw!) and this is the first shade that hasn't left me orange. The formula is very light and smells great, I can't even tell I'm wearing foundation. I have pretty bad skin and despite being only medium coverage, skin base blends really well and gives me a more even, very natural skin tone whilst covering my blemishes without looking cakey, when I really take my time applying it and use Hydra-Veil I feel photoshopped (in a good way!). I find that it lasts well through the day, my only hang up being that towards the end of the day my skin can look a little shiny/oily, this effect is reduced when used with Hydra-Veil I've noticed and I imagine would be just perfect with Matte Veil. I do also think the bottle design leaves a lot of remnant product which isn't ideal but it's definitely worth the money and one bottle has lasted me 3 months so far, with a little left to go.

foundation
I've been using this for a year or so but finding it too watery,an hour after its on its all worn away,its ok for work,but on nights out it's not enough,I look super shiney n oily.most of it ends up all over my phone by 11am most days,ok if you want a very light,almost tinted moisturiser

20 March 2014

Love, love, love it!
I am a total skin base convert.
Love the excellent coverage, but the 'real skin' effect it gives you.
No need to powder over top. Long lasting coverage.
What more could you want?!
My only qualm is that too much product gets wasted at the bottom of the tube

2 August 2013

Amazing foundation!
This has to be the best foundation I have ever tried. I have normal to dry skin and it gives AMAZING coverage but looks so natural and totally flawless. It also lasts all day. I've had lots of complements on my skin since I've used this foundation. Would highly recommend!

25 March 2013

Lovely but...
The colour of this foundation (4.5) is just lovely! I have a terrible time trying to get a foundation to match my skin tone. They are usually too orange, or too dark. This is perfect! I also think it smells pretty!
It's incredibly light, and I can't feel like I'm wearing foundation. I also have very sensitive dry skin, and it doesn't antagonise this. - all really great points.
However my issues are these;
- It doesn't last very well throughout the day because it rubs off and 'streaks' when I touch it. It pulls off when I try and apply it with my brush. And It 'flakes'.
- The bottle is too hard to squeeze. I'm loosing so much foundation in each bottle because I find it impossible to squeeze.
Maybe I'm not using it to the best of it's ability, so I'm going to keep trying with this foundation for now, but sadly I think I'm going to have to eventually use another one.
