Quick Illamasqua Powder Foundation Comparison…

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 30 - 2010

…for pale, pasty types.

So, another thing I often reach for in the summer is a bit of powder foundation.  I don’t use it all over, just on the t-zone as an alternative to pressed powder.  It gives me that extra bit of coverage for areas where I suffer from a bit of redness.

I thought this quick photo comparison between a couple of the Illamasqua Powder Foundations that I own might be useful to some.

PF120 and PF145 are both fair shades.  Of the two, PF120 is paler and pinker.  PF145 is a fair, slightly more neutral shade.  I can wear both quite easily without fear of going too dark or too orange.

I love the packaging, although some may find it a touch cumbersome.  Whilst I am enjoying using these, I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing… there’s nothing about them that particularly stands out to me over other great coverage powders.  Infact, I prefer my MAC MSF Natural to both of these.

Illamasqua Powder Foundation is a sheer/medium coverage powder.  If pressed (no pun intended) my favourite thing about this product would be it’s ‘softness’.  It feels forgiving to any drier patches I have on my skin and never seems to go cakey, no matter how heavy-handed I get.  But for me, the coverage and longevity doesn’t live up to my MSF Natural.

Anyway, that was short but (hopefully) sweet.  Illamasqua Powder Foundation is priced at £21 each and available from counters nationwide or online at ASOS and Debenhams.

    I agree, I love my MAC MSF Natural. I use them as powder and for contouring so I consider them a multi-use product and worth their price for sure. I might go check out an Illamasqua counter and see what I think of these, thanks for the comparison! xx

    I prefer MSF to this, too, though the powder does smell lovely – kind of candy-sweet.

    I only bought it because the MAC counter was rammed and I couldn’t get near enough to actually buy the MSF.

  3. i have 120 and i LOVE IT! i use it as a finishing powder over one of my fav bb creams i wear. Nothing unfortunately stays matt on me for more than say 4 hours..but this at least doesn’t cake when the oil does get through.
