Review: Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation

In line with the Chinese New Year that just passed, I did my due duties by spring cleaning – my beauty stash that it. Here’s one of the items that I have, but couldn’t actually use it cos it was the wrong shade.

Since I couldn’t apply it to head outdoors to test, I am in no position to comment on the lasting power and whether it oxidizes. All I can say is that I’m pretty tempted to buy one in my shade to see how it works out 😀  It seems to come in a huge collection of colors, almost 30 or more. Check out their colors on their website here. Illamasqua is available at Robinsons Orchard now.
