The skin base foundation is in a clever tube- as long as you store lid down, product can be squeezed out easily. It comes out quite thick and goes on better with a brush to give flawless all day coverage. However I prefer E.L doublebwear in terms of how it goes on. Bit tricky to get even coverage ( but am improving my technique with a brush). Overall it is a lovely foundation for all day wear and a little goes a long way so price wise it is not too expensive. Bronzer etc glides on over base to achieve a made up but not heavy look. No mask effect. V pleased with product range, and their under eye concealer is amazing for covering any blue.

Rubbish
This foundation is awful for the money ! I bought as MAC alternative as this foundation has great reviews!! I don't know why because I found it awful feels horrible, looks bad, wish I had never bothered ! Waste of money

20 August 2015

Amazing!
The best foundation I have ever used. Amazing flawless coverage! LOVE!

15 March 2015

Amazing Foundation
Used so many foundations over the years, bought this to use for nights out but it has now become my everyday foundation. Covers really well, can use it to contour as well as wearing to work. Very Versatile! I use the white powder on top as well to take away any shine (I have very oily skin) and it looks ace. No longer need to use lots of products, purely use the skin base foundation and a pressed powder and I don't need to worry at all. Definitely recommended. Works well on oily skin as well as dry skin, and cover imperfections! What else do you need?

1 December 2014

Love it!
Best foundation I'v ever used! Ask the shop asistants in illamasqua to help pick the right shade for you, as I was really unsure.
Covers the skin in an even tone. Makes your skin look flawless and lasts all day for my self, I don't use a lot of foundation but it's more natural looking. However still managers to cover over blemishes on a bad day ect. It lasts for night time use also, and from illamasqua you can get a darker tube, pigment that darkens the shade for night time use! Which is brilliant! I got it in store free from the met quater liverpool, but really is a God sent! Highly recommend this fabulous foundation.

21 September 2014

Best foundation so far
I have used many foundations over the years, Max factor, Mac studio fix, Benefit oxygen wow and Dior star etc... But this is by far the best foundation I have ever used. I don't know why people are saying it is not for oily skin as I have oily skin and it is perfect as it balances it all out and gives me an even tone and perfect coverage. I use a primer underneath and a sheer powder to set it and it is perfect. Everyone is commenting on how clear and flawless my skin looks. I also find my bronzer looks better with this foundation too. Definitely reccomend.

10 July 2014

Amazing! Best foundation ever
Before using this I was admanant that Mac Studio Fix was the best foundation out there, I was absolutely wrong and I will never use Mac again. This makes you look flawless and evens out your skin tone, also since I've stopped using Mac my spots have all gone and also on pictures it creates a good effect would definitely recommend this to anybody.

12 September 2013

Skin Base for my brides
I use to use alot of Mac foundations in my kit then tried the SB & was converted. I do alot of bridal makeup & love how this foundation gives great cover yet without a Cakey thick appearance. Brides always comment how they feel covered yet look natural. Skin Base teamed with a setting powder gives amazing results on camera-exactly whats needed for wedding makeup! Good work illamasqua!

3 August 2013

lurv!
Amaaaazzzziiinngg :D

21 July 2013

best foundation yet!
after trying this in the store I decided to buy it and since then iv always used illamasqua. iv tried so many different brands in the past but it wasn't doing it for me. iv got slightly dry skin and most of the foundations I have been given kept drying up. this stays on all day and gives such a glow to my face. I absolutely love

4 July 2013

Purrfect!
Love, love, love this foundation! lasts all day on my skin (with powder), feels super light weight, colour range is fab! even though I was put off by how small the bottle is, it has actually lasted me about 7 months!

4 July 2013

No one can beat this!
Simply the best foundation ever invented!! Nothing can compare and I think it's great value for money as the smallest amount gives you amazing coverage.

30 June 2013

hmm
After using mac for so long i thought i would give this a go. The colour is spot on but the coverage lasts me 2-3 hours and its a patchy mess? Thats including me using a primer and powder. Im finding that im having to top up my foundation every few hours. Not great for a night out!

29 June 2013

Best foundation
This is the best foundation out there believe me I have tried. I have oily skin and with matt primer these 2 are life savers. It lasts all day. A little goes a long way so lasts for months.

19 June 2013

I Adore Skin Base!
I use the SB3 and it is perfect for my skin colour, doesn't make me look orange or pink, just perfect! I love the feel of it on my skin and even though the tube is relatively small I only need to use a small amount and considering I use it on average 6 days a week that little tube lasts me approximately 6-7 months which makes it very good value for money!

I never use a primer with it and it lasts pretty well all day on my skin and I wouldn't be without it. Just adore this foundation, would like to try it with the Hydra Veil though just to see what the difference would be, but I seriously love this already!

Would definitely recommend it.

5 June 2013

Natural skin....by sandy
Omg love the Skin Base Foundations, everyone has commented that my skin looks as though I not wearing any foundation at all.... My skin has never looked this good. I've recommended it to all my family and friends who now too love this product with the satin primer....

24 May 2013

my Favorite Foundation
i love this foundation i have been wearing it for over a year i have very dry sensitive skin,skin base is the only foundation that gives me the results i want and trust me i have tryed many foundations i wear 8 sometimes 8.5 for going out if you want a foundation you can build up to the coverage you want this is the only for you <3

14 April 2013

Flawless!
I have, up until now, been unable to find a foundation to match my extremely fair, pink undertone skin. Previously the brands I have used, have created either a yellow or vampire-esque finish to my skin.

This foundation is beautiful. Perfect colour, finish and amazing longevity. It is also easy to apply with both a brush and sponge, coverage is buildable but remains light weight on the skin.

I highly recommend this foundation for a flawless and pore minimising effect, that lasts all day - and all night.

Thank you to Alex Box for your advise on which shade I should be wearing also. Excellent product and creator, truly inspiring.

13 April 2013

LOVE IT
This foundation is amazing, hardly have to use any and is so easy to apply. It also stays on my skin well which is good considering my oily complexion. I can't get enough of Illamasqua!

29 March 2013

Small but Outstanding
When I 1st opened my package I was like Eww , how Dare they charge me $40 for a sample size !! I actually was so turned off I didn't touch it for about a month ... How foolish of ME !!!! This product is Amazing . I love the way it blends , color match was RIGHT on . Didn't feel heavy , it is just heavenly . The only reason I give it a 4 is becuz the packaging just throws me off . I feel like I have to use as little so I don't run out ... &! I have to squeeze it vs. pump

SB2 on pale combination skin
I was expecting the shade to be slightly too light for me, but it was spot on. Applied with a stippling brush it sits on my skin nicely, evens it out well and gives it that lovely dewy glow. However, my foundation previous to this was Estée Lauder Double Wear, so i do have to admit i'm disappointed with the staying power of this foundation. Wearing Double Wear, i could go to work for the day, come home, go out on the town all night and only ever have to powder here and there, it really stayed well, but the colour was not pale enough. I found With Skin Base that it goes on perfectly, i'll come home after 6 hours of work and it'll still be on my face well (except my nose, nothing but double wear stays on there), but my face will be very shiny. But after powdering the foundation just seems to break down and smudge - and look pretty horrific! I haven't tried wearing it out yet but i'm not sure i want to risk yet. I am going to invest in the matte primer and see if that help me any. If that doesn't help then this will strictly be a day foundation, or a foundation that i wear for short period of time as it doesn't have the staying power i need for a full night or a long period of time. Bit of a shame considering the colour is perfect and it feels so light and comfortable on the face. I'm next going to try Rich Liquid foundation as they may be more appropriate for longer wearing times.

Worth every penny!
Spent forever trying to find the perfect match to my light /medium yellow undertoned Asian skin!! I was using MAC NC35 but it was a bit too light, NC37 was a bit too dark. Finally, I've found my match -- illamasqua skin based 7.5!! (i was matched in store and the comparison chart was off...) It looks so natural when applied and lasts all day! You MUST moisturize before application! medium to full coverage, it's definitely buildable and blends perfectly. It does NOT oxidize which I loveeeeeee! Whatever color you put on, is the color it remains! This will be my forever foundation as long as the formula stays the same! Ordered the light & rich formulas to try! Hope they turn out just a wonderful!

24 February 2013

skin base
Let me start by saying I really want to give this another go. I was colour matched at a counter, and wore this foundation a few times. I found it really difficult to blend onto my skin - I tried with and without a primer, and with different brushes, fingers etc- but it just wasn't as easy or seamless as I had been led to believe. Then the big thing was every time I wore this, someone told me I looked sick, or hungover, or unwell. People never make these comments and they stopped when I stopped wearing this foundation. I believe I was colour matched incorrectly and the shade I had was too light, but I'm hesitant to buy another tube because of the application issues and having an Illamasqua artist get my colour wrong previously.

17 February 2013

THE BEST FOUNDATION
Skin Base has fast replaced all of the go to and favourite foundations in my kit! Without a doubt Skin Base is the best foundation on the market!

5 February 2013

Brilliant
I love low to medium coverage and previously used a mac foundation however this is my new staple everyday foundation. I do not need to highlight or contour with this foundation it is glorious and by far the best foundation I've owned. Will be a long time coming before I ever consider changing this foundation.

31 January 2013

Love it
This foundation is amazing it looks like skin - but better! Very natural yet buildable without looking like you caked up. The trick is to have good moisturized skin as a base. I set it with illamasqua's loose powder & it lasts all day <3 only gripe was that I followed the chart & bought a shade lighter but that's ok. I could work with that ; )

GET IT!

31 January 2013

Great color.
The color of this foundation is the only one ever to have come close to my skin tone. However, having primarily been used to Estee Lauder's Double Wear the fact this only lasts a few hours on my skin is ridiculous. I could understand if I had oily skin, but I don't in any way and it just doesn't last. Which is SUCH a shame because I love everything else about it. Estee Lauder don't do one in the right shade for me really so I'm going to have to stick with this (for the color is incredible), but no primer or anything seems to make it stick :(

4 January 2013

Amazing !
I have been looking for a suitable foundation for asian skin for ages.. this is definitely the best match!

25 October 2012

Love it
Fabulous product, it blends and layers up really well. I found that I needed to use a primer under it, but it gives a great final finish and stays fresh looking all day. Brilliant.

23 October 2012

Brilliant!!!
Absolutely love this skin base foundation, works perfectly with my skin giving me a flawless matte finish!! will definitely be buying from here again!!
