Yes, I am faking it

Yes, I am faking healthy skin and you ask why
  • cause I am functioning on little sleep
  • cause my skincare routine is all over the place
  • cause my skin has developed a mind and mood of its own
And, my partner in crime is Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation

What Company Website Says

Inspired by the cult Asian market Beauty Balm creams, Skin Base Foundation is a brand new, refined formula unlike anything on the UK market. Easily blendable, it effortlessly creates a perfect complexion, and like the entire Illamasqua foundation range, is undetectable in a professional HD environment. Suitable for all skin types, it smoothes, softens and conditions your skin whilst providing natural, buildable coverage.


The foundation comes in a squeeze bottle packaging which releases just enough product to cover the entire face. Being a squeeze bottle means its hygienic and easy for carrying/using without fear of any germs or spillage. The packaging is also sleek enough to be tucked in handbag, to do touch ups if required


It comes in over 12 shades and I was matched to No 12 , for reference I am NC42 in MAC Studio Fix


The first reaction which I got when I used SBF was "Your skin is looking healthy". This was real big since I had pregnancy pigmentation and dry skin.
I put it to test when I was moving house and wore it with my daily moisturizer. It gave me good coverage resulting in healthy looking skin and yet very natural. The foundation lasted me good 6 hours with no touch ups.

I applied it with my fingers and it has become my go to foundation with its stellar performance
What I Like About It :

  • The fact that I fake healthy skin with it
  • The coverage it had to offer.
  • The staying power of SBF
What I Don't Like About It :
  •   I can't think of anything which I don't like about this product
 Would I Recommend It : Of course yes
Availability : Illamasqua counter in Myer
Price : $66 AUD ( Approx)
