Excellent Foundation

5

This foundation is awesome . Goes on smooth, isn't heavy and leaves my skin looking even toned and natural . The sunscreen is an added bonus . Non irritating and feels great on my skin.

Fave foundation

5

I love the smoothness of the application and it's long lasting. It's prefect and doesn't get crusty.

Nice luminous coverage

5

I ordered this on a whim after I promised myself I would never buy a foundation that I couldn't try-on before I purchased again. Luckily, I was not disappointed. This gem covers my redness without being heavy and still looks fresh and natural. Admittedly it is a smidge too light but nothing a little bronzer can't adjust. I initially was going to take a star off because the tube is pretty small, but it's really a great product, so packaging aside, I would say go for it.

My new fave!

5

This is the best foundation I've ever used. I have extremely acne prone/ combo skin and this doesn't break me out, dry me out, or make me oily. It sits gorgeously on the skin, leaves a subtle dewiness, and has great coverage. I just wish it came in a bigger bottle!

Best Foundation

5

I have tried many different brands and this is far and away the best one for me. The coverage is great but it doesnt look cakey. It gives your skin a bit of a dewy finish so I usually apply a good translucent power to bring that down a bit.

Favorite for 15+ years

This is the only foundation that my skin has consistently *loved* over the years. I occasionally try something new for fun or to branch out, but I always run back to Illuminare quickly! It contains no irritating ingredients, no natural oils or extracts that sensitize the skin, and no unnecessary marketing ingredients. It's the only foundation or sunscreen I've ever been able to slather on my skin every single day (since somewhere around 2002) without clogging my pores, dehydrating my skin, or causing flaking or irritation. I use a mix of Porcelain and Fair, about a pea of each (a relatively generous amount to get as much sun protection as possible), and then sometimes use some Concealing formula in Fair around my eyes (and eyelids!) if I need extra coverage. I use my fingers to apply because it's easiest and to avoid wasting product. I have naturally larger pores around my nose area, and this smooths them over and never dries down to settle in them later in the day (unlike almost every other foundation I've tried.) And despite containing silicones, it accomplishes the smoothing without that unpleasantly greasy "gasoline" texture that I associate with silicone formulas popular in the market today (especially those with cyclopentasiloxane). The texture is slightly thick, and I believe it applies best over well-moisturized skin and does especially well over emollient creams or facial oils. I'm guessing that reviewers who say they've had trouble spreading it on their skin either use minimal moisturizer, or those with a matte, velvet, or grippy texture. The finish is naturally satin with a hint of dew that just looks like fresh healthy skin. I powder with plain silica finishing powder just down the center of my face. On the occasion it settles into eyelid creases, I just pat it out and it's fine. It doesn't oxidize on the skin. The shades are relatively neutral, which is great because I find so many foundation and tinted moisturizer shades to be very orangey, peachy, or too purely yellow even though I have a warmer skin tone. I think it's a shame that it's not more talked about on YouTube and Instagram, because it really should be more popular and I think many people with sensitive and acne-prone skin would love it! For reference, I'm 45 and my skin is clog-prone and tends toward oily in the t-zone and normal elsewhere, but it's very prone to dehydration and is reactive to lots of ingredients and most skincare and products I try.

A Great Concealer

4

I would not call it a foundation, it is more of a concealer. I would not use this for coverage all over my face, but it perfect to cover the red areas around my nose and under eyes. It is light and blends well. I have fair skin and Portofino Porcelain is perfect.

Great weightless coverage

5

I am really excited to have found this product! It provides the light-medium coverage I want without feeling heavy on my skin. It's lasts all day as well. It's hydrating and creates a blurred, radiant finish without looking oily or matte. I think it's comparable to IT Cosmetics CC cream, but slightly lighter in weight and with better ingredients.

Don't like it

2

Don't like it at all, unfortunately. Definitely not moisturizing and when applying it was tugging at my aging skin. I've never written a negative review but this needed to be said.
