I've been wearing the extra coverage foundation/concealer for nearly 2 years now. This is the only concealer I will use. I've tried others and never found one that was comfortable to wear and looked natural. I hate to look like I'm wearing makeup. For that reason I rarely used to even wear concealer. Now, wearing Illuminare, my skin actually feels less dry and looks great. Plus it's my sunscreen! I've had people give me a twisted look when I tell them I'm wearing foundation. It's absolutely amazing!!! Sunscreen and moisturizer that makes my skin look great and completely natural.
I came across this makeup 4 years ago before my sister's wedding and I've been wearing it ever since. I love this makeup and will never use any other kind of foundation. The color matches my skin perfectly, it feels great on my face and it lasts a really long time.
I just got the full coverage makeup in amalfi alabaster, and I love it! I have very pale skin, and also need a full coverage makeup to hide blemishes and acne scarring. Before Prescriptives went out of business, I was able to use their products in order to get a foundation that was light enough to match my skin tone. But, after trying several different makeup lines, I couldn't find anything light enough for my skin tone that also had the full coverage I was looking for. After doing some Internet searches on pale skin, I stumbled across a reference in a blog that recommended Illuminare's foundation. I'm so glad I discovered this product, and I highly recommend it to others.
I have used it for years and will never stray! Worth every penny! For the reviewer that needs more colors..do like I do in the summer. I buy Florentine Fair and a darker color and mix them on my own for the perfect color.
I agree with the previous reviews, this is great! I have extremely reactive skin and this does not cause ANY problems with irritation or acne. It only takes a small amount to give you glowing coverage that really lasts. I live in an extremely humid climate and this stays on all day with a couple of touch ups.
Best product for covering dark circles without hard look. Doesn't get into undereye small lines but looks smooth and clean. If makeup gets into my eye it never burns or smarts.
For those of us that don't have flawless skin, extra coverage foundation makes you look like you do! The coverage is excellent with just a small amount. I don't feel like I'm wearing a mask and it lasts all day. I apply it with a brush and set it with bronzing powder. I will never use another foundation.
