I know foundations aren’t really big or massive but I just thought that for £32.50 it would be bigger than the size of my palms. Loads of people have informed me that even though it looks tiny it lasts for ages and for the fact I’ve been using this since Christmas and have barely made a dent in it I can agree with them.
In a MAC foundation I’m the shade NW15 and got the Illamasqua Skin Base foundation in SB 03 which is a perfect match for me! This foundation is actually really thick when you squeeze it out meaning you only need a little bit and it goes a long way with it being spreadable. I feel like I’m writing about a cheese spread or something.
Apart from the fact I’m really sad about the actual size of this I love this foundation so so SO much! I have dry skin and don’t feel like this foundation makes my skin even drier or oily like I get from some other foundations. I think this is the first foundation that I’ve ever had that actually matches my skin tone perfectly and I think that has to do with the fact the shade SB 03 has a yellow tone.
It gives you a nice dewy finish which you can easily make matte with a powder if you’d like to, I’m not sure if all of the shades has this same finish and is good fro dry skin or if they’re best for combination. Hopefully it’s also good for people with oily skin types!
Overall I’m so glad that I got the Skin Base Foundation and will definitely be repurchasing when I run out, although that does seem like it will be years away!
