Great but bad packaging
This product is amazing for my skin, great coverage and isn't heavy. I love the matte look on my oily skin. The products packaging looks amazing however it becomes really hard to squeeze towards coming to the end of the product, this lead me to believe I had none left when in fact there was quite a bit left. I only noticed this one time when I actually cut open the packaging to reveal more product than I thought

Really good coverage, lasted all day amazing and it is cruelty free. Could maybe have gone a shade darker, might be a good idea if samples were supplied so you could get the correct shade. Next product I am going to but is their mascara. So pleased to have found a good quality CRUELTY FREE product x

I would recommend skin base foundation, because it covers skin very good, it stays on very long and doesen't injure your skin . It is the best base I have ever had.

Best foundation that I have used in a long time. It stays on all day and feels weightless.

Favourite foundation ever. Great to build up so can wear as medium or heavy coverage. I also find that it doesn't clog up my skin like other brands do.

I've been interested in this foundation for a long time but with so many shades I was afraid to even try it. I also worried about adding yet another foundation to my drawer of fails...mostly products that made my pores look like hundreds of small (or not so small) death traps that foundations filled up only enough to make them look worse no matter what primer I used. After adding retinol to my skincare regime, I thought I might have to spend the next 18 months not wearing foundation due to the retin-A "uglies". My Illamasqua order was my last ditch effort to find something that at least didn't make me look WORSE. The staff at Illamasqua gave me a PERFECT shade match (all I had to do was provide any two currently good color matches from other lines). I put the base on expecting the worst and instead, the Retin-A uglies were GONE! My dry skin looked hydrated & smooth. The coverage is great but never thick or cakey. I think this skin base will soon be given holy grail status!

love this!
I have olive skin and always found it hard to find a foundation thay matched my skin. I use 5.5 skin base and i don't need to worry if the foundation is covering around my neck to match my face because it's literally perfect! Also, it feels amazing on - light and the coverage is fantastic! 5stars!!!

Highly reactive
I bought this foundation and found it to give great coverage and long wear however, the first time I used it I came out with a horrible red, itchy rash which took over a week to settle (with cortisone cream.) I thought it may be the new scrub I had used before hand (I have fairly sensitive skin) combined with a new product and that maybe the combination of the two was just too much for my skin so I went back to my normal skin routine and just tried the foundation alone (no scrub) etc. Once again, big, red, itchy rash all over my face. I'm not sure whats in this product but whatever it is, my skin does not like it. Such a shame because I really wanted to stick with this product.

the perfect illusion
I hate foundation, mostly because i can't find one that matche my skin color or look good more than 30 minutes !
thanks you so much ! I find the one, i have the number 6.5 and it's perfect ! easy to blend and give me the no makeup look !
I only use a tiny amount, the lasting power is fantastic if i could send a picture of me you'll grab one for sure !
and of course this couldn't be possible without the team at the store, nice, lovely, patient personn that help me with my request !
