Love at first sight: illamasqua’s new skin base foundation – REVIEW

So as u all know i was in Dubai a few days ago- just a quick getaway.. And also to re-stock on some of my makeup products!

I have been dying to try this foundation from this well known brand (in the west) “illamasqua”- British brand ofcorse  ( I luv the Brits by the way)..

Famous makeup artists worldwide rave about this foundation constantly- among them are pixiwoo & hudabeauty !

So i went to Bloomingdales in dubai mall & got my illamasqua SKIN BASE FOUNDATION. It’s not as big as other liquid foundations- but the results were WORTH IT!

The shades come in a range of 18 shades. Picking out the correct shade is quite tricky i suggest u check the shades for yourself if u travel to the UK/states/Dubai since for example ( shade #10 is for a yellow undertone but #11 which is for a pinkish undertone but 12 is yellow/beigi. So it’s quite tricky.

I had to mix 2 shades to get my matching color i took shades “#10 & #12” and mixed them!

The result:

I’m telling u girls- this foundation is a must have- you will luv it!! I promise u!

What i love about it is that it’s not heavy at all- it feels so light but the coverage is unbelievably good!! It covers everything but doesn’t feel like it’s there! I sweat it is super soft & is not yellow (unlike MAC foundations)!

It’s the perfect skin tone color! Ohhh soooo flawless.

I dab it with a beauty blender to even it all out after applying it with a brush.

Removes any dull complexion underneath & becomes even more amazing when finishing powder is applied on top. I use chanel’s universalle loose powder just to make it set.

In addition to makeup4ever HD & chanel’s foundations.. The illamasqua skin base foundation goes on top of the list.

It’s one of those foundations that stay long enough for a full day(if it had the perfect base of creams underneath)!

Where to get it from?

You can get it on bloomingdales dubai or worldwide(not in bahrain ofcorse – it’s the land of NO new brands).

You can also order online through illamasqua’s website www.illamasqua.comor even check out my friend’s blog
