Illamasqua Foundation Face-Off: Skin Base vs. Rich Liquid
There are two liquid foundation formulas in the range — The Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation and the Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation. We’ve put them up against one another, subjecting them to a few telltale tests. Keep on reading to find out how each foundation stacks up, and which one is right for your skin type and ideal finish.
Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation
The Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation is a lightweight, breathable foundation that gives the wearer a natural finish that mimics the skin itself. Despite being quite sheer, it can be built up in areas of concern to a medium finish, and packs a punch when it comes to staying power.
Application: Illamasqua recommend you apply this foundation with a brush, using circular motions to buff into the skin.
Skin type: Dry and mature skinned-wearers have raved about this product, as it won’t settle into fine lines or crowd around dehydrated patches. However, it should work for any skin type, as it’s been designed to last well and withstand the elements.
It’s also vitamin-rich, meaning it shouldn’t irritate breakouts or sensitive areas. However, acne-prone skins or those with pigmentation may require something a little more high coverage.
Shades: We’ve got 17 unique shades of this beautiful foundation ready to go.
