I have red hair, pale eyebrows and incredibly fair skin, shade 115 was the closest thing I have ever found to my natural skin tone. What shall I do now?!?!?!?!?!

good stuff

5

I purchased this product as it was on sale for £10. It was dry at the start when i dident knw how to apply it (i used to appy it with the provided sponge) then I got used to applying it and learnt that its better to apply it with a foundation brush. Ever since it has been my best foundation! # I have dry skin # ex was foundation MAC.

Works as concealer but highlighted everything that ever went wrong with my skin. I have dry skin but do put effort into it and would expect a skin product designed to make your face look perfect out to be more forgiving. This made my dry skin look absolutely hideous and I took it off to leave the house rather than go out looking terrible in face.

Very pleased

4

I bought this on Boxing Day as a bit of a change from my mac face and body and I couldn't be more impressed! It makes my skin look so smooth and it is so smooth! The only problem I have is that it's a little bit pale so I have to use a fair amount of bronzer! However, I've just ordered two more because I love it so much! A must have for my make up bag!!!

Definitely not for me

1

Despite the very poor reviews, I decided to try this product as it was on sale for £10 rather than the usual £23. This purchase was a terrible mistake. I tried applying it with fingers, brushes, damp brushes, sponges, damp sponges -- you name it, I tried it. As other reviewers have said, if you want the product to look remotely fine you need an incredible amount of prep to the skin. The product not only shows any pores you may have (large or small), but even shows any TINY hairs (I'm talking perhaps a millimeter long) you might have on your skin! I think you need to have a near perfect smooth skin for this product to work for you. I plan to use this under my eyes as a brightener as I am still young enough not to have any creasing -- just so that my £10 doesn't go to waste. I would NOT recommend this to any of my friends, or even my enemies. It is evident why they are discontinuing it.

Really Disappointing

1

I am very, very disappointed with the product - a total waste of money. I bought it for my pro kit, but should have listened to other beauty professionals who told me to stay away. Firstly, your base needs so much prep to make this foundation stay in place - I'm talking a VERY rich moisturiser, then an oil-free primer, and then a gel mattifier, and even then this is extremely difficult to blend. It takes me about 20 - 30 minutes to adequately work it into this skin, using a combination of brushes (foundation and stipple), a beauty blender (damp and dry) and my fingers. It sits on top of the skin, which means it transfers onto clothes (so useless for bridal make-up) and completely comes away if you touch it (if you have an itch, for example) which leaves you patchy. It also sits and creases into every line and pore, magnifying all problem areas. A couple of my clients with more sensitive skin have also reported breakouts. Do not waste your money on this product, it's too expensive a mistake.

How to use

3

Having used this product for a while i have found that the best and easiest way to apply it is by ALWAYS using a primer first. The one that works the best with it is Benefits Porefessional and when you add the foundation on top it goes on easily with great coverage.

Use a DAMP SPONGE to apply

5

Remember girls, you need to apply this with a brush if dry, but the preferred method is to use a damp sponge to put it on. I think you will find the experience *much* more effective and appealing.

Unblendable and Drying

2

This foundation appears to have a moist texture when you swipe a brush or sponge over it, but it does not apply very well (at least not on my skin). I found that it was very difficult to blend, even with a wet sponge, and that it made my face extremely dry. It might be a good choice for someone with very smooth and oily skin, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with dry skin. Works well on body, though, so it wasn't a complete waste.

Not a fan

1

As an avid loved of Illamasqua products, I was super excited when I found the colour range of these foundations, I usually use MAC, but even the lightest was too dark. So I went out on a whim and purchased the cream foundation, and I have never been so disappointed, I exfoliated, prepped and primed, and this foundation just came out horribly, almost unblendable, I tried 4 different ways, with 3 different brushes and it just enlarged my pores, and made my skin look horrible. It had staying power, but that's about it. I am so upset, I love everything else but this just needs to be reformulated or something, for the price I paid, and all the fancy packaging, it didn't make me feel any better, and at 21, foundation should not make me look 40! Even my own mother, a make up artist for 25+ years was shocked! So sad :( I was really looking forward to this :( (Posted on 23/10/2012)
