So there have been a lot of posts about the brand spanking new Skin Base Foundation from Illamasqua so I’m not going to go into great detail about it, but for the benefit of those who’ve not heard anything about it it here’s the low down.
So Skin Base is Illamasqua’s take on the cult Beauty Balm Creams so popular in Asia. It professes to be easily blendable and to create a perfect complexion… as well as providing your base it smoothes, softens and conditions your skin while proving natural, buildable coverage. It can be used as a primer, concealer or foundation and is available in 18 shades, and retails at £25 for 30mls as of now.
Now I was sent three shades to try. 05, 06 and 07.
And this was a little problem for me. 07 was far to dark for my skin. 05 was a good match for my skin, but when applied all over my face I looked pale as a ghost… which left me with 06… which was a good match and at first looked perfect….more on that shortly.
