Illamasqua Skin Base Review

Amazing finish from skin base alone!!!
Todays post is going to be a mini review on the 'Illamasqua Skin Base' in the colour 2.

I was sent this after contacting Illamasqua as I want to eventually make a post about different foundations/bb creams suitable for porcelain skin tones like mine.

A couple of days ago I went to do my make-up and I decided to try out the product, and I must say I am very impressed.

The Colour

Lets just begin by praising Illamasqua, they have made a product paler- yes paler than my current skin tone! It blended in perfectly with no fear of having a nice line below my chin!

The Finish

Blending the product was a little tricky, but with practice I would definitely get used to it. It looked and felt very chalky on the skin, but felt so light as if I wasn't wearing much on my skin at all- leaving me with a light-medium (and I am presuming buildable) coverage.

The Hold
Left: Skin Base and Concealer---Right: Au Naturel.
(selfies make me cry)

My spots are all over place at the minute, so much so that I did need to put concealer over the more visible spots, however, I usually have to put concealer over scars and blemishes, yet I found the product covered the majority of them wonderfully! I also powdered to set the look.

A few hours later I looked in the mirror to see the outcome and I only needed to touch up the spots from my concealer slightly, my skin still looked amazing and didn't look dry nor oily.

Overall I am MAJORLY impressed with this product, I would recommend this to people of all skin tones, but especially people like moi. I am definitely looking into buying it the next (and first) time I properly get to visit an Illamasqua counter, as no doubt there will be many more goodies I will want to purchase!!
