Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation Review

Tuesday, February 16th 2016 0

Absolutely full coverage

For every day of February, I'll be reviewing a different complexion product.

Day 16: Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation

Level of coverage

This can cover tattoos. Enough said.

Finish 

The finish is very matte and velvety.

Longevity 

You’ll get a really long wear out of this but it can start to look slightly dry as the day goes on. The best way to revive it is with a spray of hydrating water like the Caudal Beauty Elixir.

Techniques that you might need to know

Whether your skin is dry or oily, you’ll need to really prep with this. Work quickly with it because it sets quickly, and do not use a flat foundation brush. The coverage is very, very full so use a buffing brush to smooth it out.

Rich Liquid Illamasqua

You’ll like this if…  

– You need maximum coverage

– You wish to cover severe acne/blemishes

– You have very oily skin

Avoid if…

I wouldn’t hugely recommend this for someone with dry skin because it may gather to dry areas even with extensive prepping.

Products that work well with this 

Use Hydra Veil to prep the skin for this, it will help to ensure an even application. I’d really recommend using a rich moisturiser – something like Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base would be ideal because it is part moisturiser part primer.

Everything else I need to tell you

If for whatever reason you need a very full coverage then this is for you. Two days ago, I had a reaction to something (I’m not too sure what) and I woke up with a face like a beetroot. Ask my horrified sister and colleagues, all of whom have seen the photos, and they will tell you that I was unbelievably red all over. But I buffed a pea sized amount of this onto my face, and hilariously had a load of comments about how great my skin was looking.

If I had to describe this foundation in one sentence…

Absolutely full coverage that does not move – not for the faint hearted.

Rich Liquid Foundation costs £31.00 and is available nationwide.
