Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation Review

Hi beauties,

Happy Friday!

Now as you might already know, foundations have become a little obsession of mine. I'm always reading about them - adding them into my kit is quite a considered process!

I want to talk with passion about the products I use, and know that I can trust they will do the job. So when I was chatting foundations with the lovely Zoe Newlove - I knew I had to give this one a whirl! Illamasqua Skin Base retails at £27. Inspired by the cult Asian market Beauty Balm creams it creates a beautiful soft focus effect, blurring out imperfections without feeling heavy on the skin.

Exactly as it's described, it's an 'easily blendable formula effortlessly creates a perfect complexion'. I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to buff this one into the skin. I also love it when brands include a pure white within the range of colours, as that way you can custom mix to your hearts content!

Not completely compatible with my dry skin, but to be honest that's more of a skin care issue that I'm working out as we transition into Autumn. 

Here's a snap of me with this foundation on -

Has any one tried this foundation? What are your thoughts?

Lots of love,

    1. Thanks for the follow Amelia! Your blog is fab! xx

  2. You look amazing!
    How do you think is it good for oily skin?

    1. Awww thanks Christine! With it being more of a balm it does have a more dewy look so for oily skin I'd definitely recommend to powder afterwards and use an oil free primer to ensure staying power!xx

  3. You have a gorgeous, lush blog- and in such a few posts. keep up the good work!
