It is also relatively easy to colour match online as they have a fantastic shade comparison chart which includes various other foundation brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, YSL and NARS although if you have a Illamasqua stocklist near you it’s best to go and get matched but if, like me there isn’t this is a great alternative that is pretty accurate. I think shade 6 is a little dark for me at the moment but I didn’t want to buy it too light with Summer just around the corner but I will probably be buying a lighter shade so I can mix a perfect shade for my skin throughout the different seasons.
The only negative thing I can say about it is that the shape of the tube makes it quite hard to squeeze the foundation out of, especially with false nails on but nothing major that will stop me from using or re purchasing.
If you want to see some photographs where I’m actually wearing this foundation to get a better idea of what it looks like on I’m wearing it in posts here, here (in this photograph I mixed it with Chanel Matt Lumiere) and here.
I adore this foundation and at £25, it’s a lot cheaper than the Chanel one I was previously using so that’s a bonus for me. I absolutely love this foundation and have been wearing it everyday since I got it. If you haven’t tried this yet I urge you to! My skin has never agreed with a foundation so well before let alone be improved by one!
Have you tried Illamasqua Skin Base? What did you think of it?
