Illamasqua Cream Foundation Review

Hey Dolls,
Sorry for my lack of posting, there has been a death in my family (RIP Grandma) and I have been unwell. However I am now back to regular posting (YAY!).

Today I am reviewing Illamasqua’s Cream foundation in two shades, shade CF110 and shade CF120. I got these from the Illamasqua counter in Birmingham last winter as I needed something full coverage that I could touch up on the go. I paid £23 each for these foundations and I have to say, money well spend. This is how Illamasqua describes them.

Create a base that brings out the bold in you. Illamasqua Cream Foundation provides medium-full coverage and works with your skin to cover and enhance. It blends easily, allowing you to vary coverage as much or as little as you need, effortlessly balancing uneven skin tone and giving you the control to create a flawless finish. Comes in a mirror compact for touch-ups on the go.”

The packaging is standard Illamasqua, sleek and gothic.
It certainly delivers on coverage, it’s a high medium to full coverage. You get a sponge to apply it with which is nice, but i do prefer a brush. Either my MAC stippling brush or a liquid foundation brush. One of my favorite things about this product is that it has powder in it so no need to powder it. It also has a great mirror in the top as well.

Both of these match me perfectly in different seasons, scarily CF110 is my PERFECT match in the winter and CF120 is amazing for me in the other seasons. Both are for pale skin (CF110 may be better suited for vampires. It’s pure pinky white!) and both have pink undertones. They are very true to the Illamasqua swatches but if you can get colour matched do! If not the Illamasqua swatches are pretty damn good.

CF110 swatched on my hand. Blended and unblended 

It lasts quite well but does sweat off easily in the summer, I’d defiantly say it’s an autumn and winter foundation! It has a gorgeous vanilla sent to it and what’s even better is it hasn’t agitated even the ridiculously sensitive skin of my mother. It is not an artificial sent.

The gorgeous sponge supplied with each.

I really do like this foundation. It’s not in the same league as their Rich Liquid foundation but I still love it. It also makes an amazing concealer too!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this review and I am pleased to be back posting regularly.  I’d love to thank my readers/followers for their lovely words in this hard time. Many thanks! 

Until next time! xoxo
