I admit I was totally skeptical about the ads I saw online for this Foundation product range called IL MAKIAGE. But with over 860,000 4.5 star reviews and a close friend I respect saying she loves it so much, I decided to give it a try.
To my amazement - A TOTAL BONUS WAS - that the challenge of choosing a foundation that was 'the right color match' was so easy with their online selector quiz! It totally worked, selecting the 1 out of 50 shades best suited to me which was perfect! I ordered and it was reasonably priced and in AUD for me, then it arrived within days! No department store crowds, waiting for someone to serve me and try many different products on in store, the process was streamlined and just sorted in a few minutes!
Background: I am 55 now and had found that powders no longer worked for me and that I needed a little extra assistance to feel my best when I was wearing makeup. I have very red skin naturally, I have always been super sensitive to nasties in skin care products, my skin is extra susceptible to the elements, I don't like sticky, thick, smelly or messy makeup. Additionally, I am seek products that are kind to the animals, my health and are anti-aging! I honestly tried so many products when I moved past 50, and this one, is the clear winner for me!

I also love the IL MAKIAGE No Filter Primer
The No Filter Primer is silky, weightless and truly does blur pores, fine lines & wrinkles, instantly smooths skin & maximizes foundation wear time. The lightweight texture & silky formula creates a soft, long-lasting photoshopped effect. I very much love it. I kicked my old one, that I had used for over a decade, to the curb after trying this!
