Question
Palest shade natural looking?
Hi does anyone know if the lightest shade is naturally light looking or if it is white? I am very pale and the reviews have said it is a great foundation for pale skin however I am unsure of which shade to choose? Thanks!

I too am always the palest shade in the foundations. I tried the palest white and it was NOT natural; I looked deathly. I recommend the 115 which you can get from the Illamasqua website; shipping from the UK doesn't really take long. I can wear the 120 shade and that works fine for me.

The palest shade that I believe is natural looking is 120. Its basically white with a pink tint. The pink was the only thing that didn't match my very pale skin. I am a cool blue/pink base skin tone (basically translucent). I am currently looking to try their next shade up 133 which is a neutral undertone. I am hoping that no yellow is within it, for that won't work with my skin. But yeah, I'd say 120 is the lightest natural looking. Anything lower will likely be to paper white and un-skin like.

Shade 110 is too light for me, and I am albino (literally). Unless you are into a Gothic type look, I would not recommend this for daily wear, except maybe as a highlighter. I suppose if you buff it a LOT with a good brush you will spread it thin enough to not be so white, at which point you will have made it very sheer coverage... but it certainly is not a natural skin tone; I mean I have no melanin in my skin and it was too white for me. If you use it very very lightly, with blusher, bronzer, neutral lipstick and dust a powder over the top, it would be wearable on extremely pale people, but do not expect this to match your skin without you adding a lot of color with other products.

Shade 110 is the Palest Skin Tone Color and has slight Pink Undertones, it almost looks totally White in the pan but buffs-out to such a soft airbrushed Porcelain look, however the Brush you use makes a huge difference in the results you get. The consistancy of this Cream Foundation is very buildable and it depends on how much coverage you desire. Illamasqua does actually make Shade100 which is totally Pure White, but it's really not a Skin Tone Color for daily street wear... Try the 110 Shade and a good brush, you'll love it!

The lightest shade is really pale, but with a pink undertone to it so that it doesn't look completely white. When I first put it on, I actually thought it was too pale (which is rare for me!) but after blending it out it really looked natural. What's great is that my face finally matches my neck...no more orange face or visible foundation lines.

Hope this helps!

Mine both came with sponges, but they were separate in the package and I almost discarded it by mistake. It's a nice quality.

Mine came with the sponge. There should be two slots in the box this product comes in- one with the compact, one with the sponge. I use a brush instead, though, I find it goes on better with a brush.

Does come with the sponge shown, but it is in the box. The sponge does not go in the compact. I prefer to apply with a brush for a lighter and more even cover.

I suggest choosing a shade darker if your applying with a brush. If you are applying with the included sponge maybe your true shade or even a shade lighter to layer til desired coverage is acheived.

You should defiantely go to the store. They have a lot of colors and their shade system is a little weird but they should have a color match for you.

Is this foundation oil-free?
I figured since it is a cream that it is not oil-free, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

The Cream Foundation does have Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil) and Ricinus Communis (Castor Oil), while some people may be sensitive to these ingredients, it really doesn't seem to bother others at all...

Question
Is this good on acne-prone skin?
I'm looking into getting the lightest one (love my pale skin) since most of the reviews suggest it won't make me look yellowy, which is a big issue for me and foundation. Anyway, I also happen to be very acne prone, which messes up the coloration and texture of my skin enough to begin with. I was wondering if anyone else who is acne-prone has used this, and if so, how did that work out for you?
