First Impressions: Illamasqua Foundation/Concealer Purchases!

Hey lovelies. As some of you may have seen on twitter, my computer broke! Taking with it a few blog posts worth of photos, hence my lack of posting this week. Boo! It’s gone in for repair today so I really hope the images can be salvaged! In the mean time, I have a few Illamasqua goodies which I got in their 60% sale to share with you. This is going to be more of a first impressions post, with more detailed comparisons of all my Illamasqua foundations upcoming.

One of the main things I love about Illamasqua foundations is that they cater for us pale folks. Their skin base is freaking fantastic! I’ve been wanting to try some of the other face products for a while, so really couldn't resist a sale.

Under-Eye Concealer in 105 (White with pink undertones)
I know i know! This is white! It blends amazingly with my skin base foundation in 02 though, making it perfect for my ghost like skin. I expected this to cake up easily for some reason, but it really doesn't! It’s creamy but kind of merges with the skin. Contains 2.5ml of product. RRP £13. On sale for £5.

Powder Foundation in 105 (White with pink undertones)
Now I wouldn’t call this product a foundation by any means. I just use it to powder and set my face makeup. What it does do though, is pale down a darker foundation a little. I’ve been using this since I got it and and pretty happy so far. Contains 10g of product. RRP £21.50. On sale for £10.

Cream Foundation in 110 (White with pink undertones)
Firstly I don't have a clue why this number is different to the two above, as I guess they are the same shade really (the powder looks the darkest in the pan out of the three). This is the only one I haven't really tried yet though. Swatched it feels and looks lovely, so when I test it out on my face I will update you! Contains 8g of product. RRP £21.50. On sale for £10.

I doubt many of you will get the same shades as I do. I am a pale ginger kid and embrace it to the max! Illamasqua does have a large range of foundation types and colours though, so I totally recommend checking them out! Especially you guys in the UK, as their sale is still on going!
Have you ever tried an Illamasqua foundation?

  1. Is Illamasqua from the UK? I've never heard of them before until now. I'm very intrigue by their packaging, it's so elegant!
