Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation

Illamasqua rich liquid foundation review
I have never been one to buy expensive foundation but a few months back I got a discount code for my birthday so I decided to treat myself and buy myself a premium foundation and eventually chose Illamasqua rich liquid foundation after trying it at my local Illamasqua counter in Debenhams. 

I have always been tempted by the Illamasqua foundations as every time I see Illamasqua post anything on social media everyone looks so flawless almost photo shopped I really wondered could a foundation give me these results so they was only one way to find out and that was to spend £30 on this foundation and find out the results for myself.

Illamasqua rich liquid foundation swatch
  • 12 shades in the rich liquid foundation ( I use 140)
  • Loved my Makeup Artists 
  • Long lasting coverage without feeling heavy
  • It blends easily and hides problem areas easily 
  • Cruelty Free
  • Premium product

 Finish and Lasting power 

Applying this foundation was very to other foundations I have in my collection as this is so much thicker so I used my beauty blender to get an even coverage on my skin and with that it worked wonderfully. I have tried using a makeup brush with applying this foundation but the ones I have don't apply this foundation as well as my beauty blender does. The look of this foundation is quite beautiful to be honest and makes such a difference to my skin and gives my skin a natural looking glow and without being heavy so it was easy to wear all day and most of all it lasts all day with the help of a primer. I have had this foundation for a few months now and I use it most days and I still have loads left of this product.

Overall I am very pleased with this product and I am very happy that I have it in my makeup collection, the only 2 slight problems I have with this foundation is 1; the price, its a bit steep for a foundation but saying that it is a premium product and really does look beautiful and 2; its not the easiest to blend so I suggest using something like a beauty blender. After that its a worth while product and will continue to use to make me feel beautiful.

Have you tried Illamasqua foundation before?

Till next time
