If you have as much as thought about purchasing Illamasqua's now cult base product - Illamasqua Skin Base do it now! Why? Well should you purchase a bottle (at an Illamasqua counter only) you will receive a complimentary Illamasqua Skin Base Mixer with every purchase.
Illamasqua Skin Base Mixers are tiny, sample sized tubes of pure pigment and when I say pure pigment I am not kidding. Normally I bemoan dinky sample sized products as you are often lucky to get one full application out of one, well the Illamasqua Skin Base Mixers are different. They are so crazily pigmented that you will never need more than a pea sized amount - meaning one little 5ml tube could well last you at least three months with daily use. I kid you not.
After months of research Illamsqua noted that many of us can not find the perfect foundation match off the shelf and have resorted to mixing up to three shades together, which of course is both costly and time consuming. Enter Illamasqua Skin Base Mixers four pure pigment liquid base add ons that can add depth, luminosity and warmth to any liquid foundation not to mention the shades can double up as a blush, contour and highlight. The four shades are: White - this will add brightness to the skin but can also help lighten a too deep base product as well as working well if blended out as an extreme highlighter. Amber has been created to reduce redness and help to balance an uneven skin tone. I found this can double up as creme blush too. Next we have Terracotta which has been intended to blur unwanted dark pigmentation and again could be used as blush or even matte lip colour? Lastly we have Chestnut which can add depth to any liquid product or can double up as contour shade. Eat your heart out Kim Kardashian!
I should mention that when added to Illamasqua's skin base or any other liquid base product the new Illamasqua Skin Base Mixers do not change the consistency or coverage levels all they do is alter the tone. If you need an excuse to treat yourself to a bottle of Illamasqua's Skin Base let this be the reason as the Illamasqua Skin Base Mixers are too good to miss out on. Here's hoping that they become permanent additions to the brand's already extensive line up!
As mentioned the Illamasqua Skin Base Mixers are a gift with purchase (free with Illamasqua Skin Base) and are only available at Illamasqua counters while stock lasts.
