WHAT ILLAMASQUA SAYS ABOUT IT

“Inspired by the cult Asian market Beauty Balm creams, Skin Base Foundation is a brand new, refined formula unlike anything on the UK market. Easily blendable, it effortlessly creates a perfect complexion, and like the entire Illamasqua foundation range, is undetectable in a professional HD environment. Suitable for all skin types, it smoothes, softens and conditions your skin whilst providing natural, buildable coverage.”

ABOUT PRODUCT

Very thick formula. The finish of this foundation I would say is semi-matte, and it doesn’t dry too quickly so you have time to blend it well. It suits all skin types, but I would advise people with severely dry skin to moisturize really well beforehand and with very oily skin to powder afterwards and use a mattifying moisturiser and primer.The first time I used this foundation I could not get my head around the way it feels so light yet gives effortlessly full coverage. It looks so natural on the skin unlike many other full coverage foundations I’ve tried and just feels like you’re wearing no foundation at all. It blends like a dream, melts right into the skin and gives an airbrushed flawless finish and doesn’t flashback as it has no SPF. I find applying it using a buffing brush or a stippling brush gives best results, also your fingers will do amazing job.

PACKAGING

Maybe the only thing I don’t like about this foundation is packaging. Beautiful, minimalistic, nude & black – visually for me it’s perfect, but the hard plastic does not leave enough space to squeeze the thick product out completely, so I am afraid that this excellent product eventually will not be fully used.

It contains 30 ml and it is best to use within 24 months from opening.

SHADES

A whole range of different shades, I believe that everyone can find their own match. Neutral, yellow based and pink undertones, just beautiful!

Neutral undertone – 01, 06

Pink undertone – 02, 05, 07, 08

Yellow undertone – 03, 04, 09, 10, 11, 13, 14

Dark olive undertones – 15, 16, 17, 18

*also they release few more shades like 6.5, 7.5,… Really amazing shade range with this foundation!!!

PROS & CONS:

+

  • very natural full coverage foundation
  • works on most people
  • amazing shade range
  • great for photography
  • buildable
  • longlasting

-

  • packaging will not let you to use all the product
  • could be to pricey for some people (about 270 HRK, Muller)

RANGE: 9.5/10

I’m very impress with this foundation, and I would definitely give a huge recommendation to everybody who wants flawless skin. You will be able to sheer this foundation with you moisturizer or do a full coverage to your skin very easily. This product is highly pigmented and although the formula is very thick you need really small amount to do your face. Also, this product works like a concealer too so you can definitely say that with this one you can go a long way.

Already tried this foundation? What is your opinion? Was the review helpful to decide is this foundation for you?

  1. Boja mi izgleda odlično i idem ju definitivno uživo isprobati! Moje sestre imaju 7,5 i još neku boju ,ali uvijek su mi tako žuto izgledali u bočici da nisam htjela ni probati (bar radi teksture i osjećaja na licu). Hvala za recenziju

  2. Zvuči super. Baš sam u potrazi za jednim takvim puderom pa ću ga obavezno isprobati kod sljedećeg odlaska u Muller :)

  3. Zelim isprobati, no svaki put me odbije sastav. Odbijam kupiti (a kamoli platiti puno) proizvod kojeg cu staviti na lice a sadrzava izmedu ostalog i paraffinum liquidum. Kada godinama vodis borbu s licem postanes svjestan nekih stvari…i ne zelis se vratit na staro koliko god je moguce :D .

    • Znam, vljela bih da napises nesto o svom iskustvu, pudere koje volis… Nikad nisam imala problema s tenom pa mi je tesko napisati nesto iz iskustva, ali svaki komentar je dobrodosao, vjerujem da ce nekome pomoci.

      • Budem se sutra raspisala o tome :D
        Moram samo reci da sam isprobala piling od kave za celulit (na kraju sam se sva ispilingirala hehe) i efekt je bio vrhunski. Do sada sam radila piling sa palentom, jogurtom i medom ali kava mi je ucinila puno bolji rezultat ^^

    • Da, definitvno, bez probe nemoj ni jedan puder kupiti. Illamasqua je brend koji definitivno to podrzava pa rijetko kad kod njih ne dobis kompletno sminkanje prilikom posjeta ducana ili Mullera…

      • Osim u Splitu :) Ne znam da li se situacija poboljšala od mog zadnjeg posjeta Jokeru, ali kad sam bila tamo, više sam ja znala o Illamasqua proizvodima nego one jadne curice/tete tamo… Ma, u biti, toliko mi se taj Muller zgadio da mislim da neću kupovati ništa tamo, a Illamasqua stash ću obnoviti/popuniti kad odem do Zagreba.

        • Hahahahah, joj to je tako iritantno! Ne znam sto reci osim da osoblje u parfumerija, izuzev vrlo maloj manjini nema pojma o kozmetici, kako preparativnoj tako i dekorativnoj… Nadolazecim novitetima jos manje :D
