Very drying, made my skin feel super thirsty! Emphasised wrinkles and pores. Poor returning policy. In comparison to other retailers where I could simply return this product for refund.

Perfect for any skin type. I have quite dry skin and this foundation is perfect. It's not too thin or too thick, it's the best consistency of foundation I've found out of any brand I've tried. Gorgeous colour aswell (I use shade 7.5 which has olive undertones). Favourite foundation yet. Would highly reccomend.

lovely product. easy to spread, sits on face nicely. a little bit goes a long way. medium to full coverage. not great for people with oily skin, as it can wear off. but on the whole, brilliant and the colour match is the best.

Fantastic product
Love the way this glides onto my skin and evens out the tone. Very good wearing foundation as it lasts all day with limited touch up needed. Would love a fragrance free version for sensitive skin.

Little goes a long way, looks very natural
This foundation is great on my skin, defo would not recommend it for people that have dry skin. excellent for combination skin like myself. I had problems with the bottle at first but then found the trick to use it. shake bottle (lid facing downwards) & gently press in the middle of the bottle, it comes out naturally. Defo my permanent foundation :)

Worst bottle design but best foundation
Why would someone design such an awful bottle for a remarkable foundation. I would like to request the illamasqua team to change the shape of this bottle. I only used it 3 times and the rest is not coming out. I had to cut it with the sharpest knife from my kitchen and transfer it into a jar. What a shame and yet we pay so much money for this.

Do not buy this awful foundation, awful bottle, just awful
Where to start with this awful product? I have very pale skin with very red cheeks and an oily t-zone, so finding foundations that will match my skin tone and won't make me look like I've been in the gym for two hours is a killer for me. I went to the Trafford centre a few months back and came across selfridges, and then the illamasqua counter. After hearing a lot of good reviews about their products I decided to get a foundation and I was matched to number 02 . I loved the look it gave me and it matched my skin perfectly, I told the lady how I suffered with an oily t-zone and a red blotchy face and she said how perfect it would be for me then. After an hour of wearing it I looked like an oily clown and it was see through. I figured oh well I've been out shopping getting hot and bothered so maybe that's why and thought nothing of it. I then tried it the next day, simple went on fine and made me look porcelain, a few hours later I had to apply more powder and still it was see through. I've tried this foundation with tones of primers, setting powders etc and nothing seems to make it last longer than an hour. I am so disappointed with this product and after spending £27 I am completely pissed off. Not to mention the shape of the bottle, takes a good 5 minutes to try and get enough product out. I have gone back to using Rimmel London match perfection in 010 light porcelain and that's the only foundation I will now use, however I still have to reapply powder because of my t-zone. Worst and dearest mistake I've made when it comes to makeup.

Excellent
Amazing product!!!! I'm in love with Illamasqua products...products worth every penny!! Unfortunatelly I have a skin type that requires THE BEST products(skincare/ make up)..I've spend loads of time and money looking for something Perfect for my skin...and finally I got it...thank you ILLAMASQUA!!!!

Terrible bottle
Why put this foundation in a stupid shaped bottle that you cant squeeze to get it out...very badly designed

14 February 2014

Love it
I have been using Chanel Lumiere for years and it is safe to say that this is now going to be my new staple foundation instead. It has excellent coverage with out being heavy and really does make my complexion look flawless. I would recommend is a heartbeat!!

product
I bought this very recently after shopping in Selfridges Birmingham when the counter caught my eye. I had heard a few good things about this foundation so I thought "why not" and asked to be matched to a colour. First of all, the shade range isn't the best for pale skin whatsoever! The shade I was matched to was 02 which is too pink in my opinion. I then asked to try shade 03 and this was too yellow. In the end, I plumped for the 02 as it was the one that was closest to my skin but I can't say I was entirely happy. I bought it anyway - and I wish I hadn't.

I have dry/normal skin and I exfoliate at least twice a week, wear an incredibly rich moisturiser, I wear a primer and I unfortunately have some large pores on my nose and cheeks. This foundation was a big, cakey mess when I applied it and believe me, I've tried to make it work! I've used sponges, fingers, all kinds of foundation brushes - nothing has helped. It accentuated the appearance of my pores and fine lines and it never seemed to dry down properly - it stayed sticky and cakey.

It was incredibly difficult to blend - not fluid at all. When I had the foundation on, it looked and felt like a heavy mask of makeup. £27 down the drain...I also bought the concealer to go with it - again, another waste of time. Looked cakey and didn't set properly on my skin.

Would not re-purchase or recommend to friends - its just a shame I don't live locally to the store I purchased it from as I would have definitely returned it!!

Terrible for my skin!
I recently bought Skin Base for the first time due to reading so many good reviews. I am so disappointed that is looks so bad on my skin.

My skin is normal/dry with large pores and a few small red patches on my chin. I've found that my skin is fine with most foundations.

I regularly exfoliate my skin, always use a rich moisturiser and use a good primer which reduces the visibility of my pores with other foundations.

I tried to apply Skin Base with my fingers, a sponge and several brushes but it always looks horrible.

The foundation sits in my pores and makes them more visible. The foundation doesn't cover my imperfections (which other foundations do easily), the foundation went very patchy with a couple of hours and looked flakey. The foundation also made my skin look very dry in patches which has never happened with other foundations.

It also has no staying power at all (I've tried it with several different primers and moisturisers). It rubs off very quickly and makes me look shiney even though my skin isn't oily.

I also found it really difficult to apply despite it being described as 'easily blendable'. It just applies badly and you really need to work at it to make it look nice.

All in all I'm very disappointed. I look better without wearing foundation than when I wear this.

Bad Quality Bottle exterior, impossible to squeeze out all of the product, only squeezes up to 3-7 uses :(
The foundation is good but this bottle is Terrible. It is very hard thick plastic exterior and super hard to squeeze. The tip is also annoying because if it was an open headed bottle, the foundation can be taken out easily with a foundation brush like most prestige foundations. But this tip is as tiny as a syringe on an injection! It took all my power to squeeze two pumps before my wrist started hurting with pain. I returned this foundation :( Will not repurchase unless they start making a better shaped bottle in which the foundation wont be such a pain to take out. Also I warn you this bottle will barely do 4-6 uses before it cant squeeze anymore. Many other customers also complained that they can only take out 25% of product, the rest is still in the bottle but not able to be squeezed out due to a needle tiny opening and 75% of product is wasted (unless you figure out a way to literally cut this bottle open in half with a scissor to reach the remaining product on top half of the bottle lol). What a shame.

Amazing
This has light coverage, when you are in college, uni or going to work this is the one you need, amazing, good for dry skin.

This changed how I feel about foundation
Firstly, I feel the need to correct Selina's review. This formulation has never gone to sale and she has mixed it up with the liquid light foundation. I LOVE this so much. It dose not oxygenate, a little goes a long way and I even use it in place of concealer. You can build it up without it looking caked on. The best foundation I have every used so far. If you can test it out, you will see for yourself.

High street brands just as good
I bought this in the sale for £7.50 but i never use it much as I don't really get a full coverage with this foundation and I don't want to apply too much and end up cakey. I have tried and tested high street brands which cost same/similar to the sale price which I purchased it and honestly they are better quality. However, I'm going to use this foundation more and see how it turns out, I may be wrong. I would recommend it but I wouldn't buy it at the full price - not worth it.

8 November 2013

Hmmm
I first came in contact with this foundation when I had a photoshoot and they used shade 06 on me, I loved the look of it so asked what it was and bought some of my own. The first week of using this I loved it and I got a lot of people saying I looked beautiful but then i took it with me on holiday and it seemed to melt and it didn't go back to normal and no longer has a nice effect on my skin, it was such a shame because I loved it :(
