I’m always cautious about trying out new foundations having suffered from a breakout almost every time I have decided to change face products. When I say I all have attempted them, I really have. From MAC to Chanel to Giorgio Armani I’ve yet to find a foundation that I could really call my holy grail. For the better part of a year, I was using Makeup Forever HD Foundation and I must say if there is a basis that has come close to being a holy grail it needs to be this one.
It photographs properly and the coverage is excellent because you can use it light when you wish and build it up for full coverage. However, after a few months of wearing a similar thing I needed to venture out hence my new obtain Illamasqua. Illamasqua explain their Skin Base Foundation as ‘inspired by the cult Asian market.
Asian market Beauty Balm lotions. A far more natural makeup look when I was out on dinner. I love how undetectable it looks. As well as for the negatives now. This foundation as amazing as it looks initially, does not last at all long. Without powdering this foundation lasts about 2 hours and with powdering lasts at max 4 but even then it starts to oxidise and appearance uneven.

I found this a huge disappointment, because I fell in love with how it appeared on my pores and skin after application. I also feel for the £32 I spent, I did not get all that much more than others I’ve tried really. Illamasqua declare that this foundation is HD ready, however I did so struggle slightly with photography.
Initially using the product I did suffer from some white flashback on my face, but I performed around with MAC studio room fix plus and bronzers to repair this. However the biggest con of the foundation is that it broke me out. Bare in mind my skin is extremely sensitive to foundations so i’m not completely surprised, I was disappointed though. After about three weeks of by using this foundation I started to get small bumps throughout the centre of my face.
I have to say, had I not broken out from this product I would be a lot more optimistic and inviting about it. There are plenty of positives for this foundation, it can look amazing on your skin and I really do like the idea of how it incorporate vitamins and minerals into its formula.
