Hey guys,

I am very excited to share with you  a new discovery. Recently, I have been on the hunt for my holy grail foundation. So in the process I have picked up and tried quite a few foundations. I have definitely discovered some gems but the one I am really excited about is Illamasqua’s Rich Liquid Foundation. I picked this up at Sephora, which only carries a limited line of products from Illamasqua.

This foundation is very thick and creamy for a liquid foundation. Although it’s very thick it blends beautifully and does not appear heavy or cakey on the skin. I recommend applying this foundation with a very dense foundation brush, because this foundation is so thick you need a dense brush to distribute the foundation evenly. I use the Philosophy Supernatural Airbrush to apply this foundation, which is the most dense brush I own. I feel as though something like a MAC 109 or 187 is too loosely packed and will be difficult to work with to apply this foundation.

This foundation is very pigmented, it gives you maximum coverage. It offers such great coverage that it can also be used as a concealer. Due to this product being highly pigmented you only need to use a tiny amount. I use about half of a pea size amount for my entire face. This small amount gives me a full coverage flawless finish. Be careful not to use too much of this product because you only need a minimal amount to get full coverage.

Also I was initially scared of this product because I have oily skin and with a name like rich liquid. I thought this was just not going to work for me. I was completely wrong. It gives me a semi-matte finish and it takes longer for my oils to break though this foundation in comparison to other foundations.

I would summarize this foundation by saying its full coverage, long-lasting & surprising light-weight. Overall, a great addition
