Silk Creme Foundation
Not for my skin but ...
I simply find this gives too matte a finish for my older skin. It may well suit someone with a younger, or greasier, skin. It is quite thick and would need a good primer in any case. I much prefer Moisture Supreme Foundation.

Great Foundation, medium-full coverage
This is a great foundation. It is quite pigmented so a tiny bit goes a long way, and it seems to 'fuse' with the skin really nicely so stays on all day. It works much better if you use a small amount and buff into skin. The finish is relaltively matte, so I like to apply a highlighter or something over it. I had been using Benefit 'Brightening Make up' and YSL Touche Eclat Foundation before this, and I think because they were quite light-reflective their coverage wasn't great, whereas this gives great coverage and allows for a solid base for applying blusher/highlighter etc.

Super high coverage foundation
I bought this after trying a sample pot from spacenk. I have the colour rose ivory which is a great match for my pale slightly pink toned skin. It is a very thick creamy texture which is why I gave it 4 stars, at first it was difficult for me to apply as i found it looked a bit too heavy. Eventually I have now found that if I apply a lot less and really buff it in with a buffing brush I do get a amazing finish. I know it is very expensive but as I use so little I know it will last me ages! It covers all my redness and small blemishes. For bigger spots and under eye circles I use a little bit of concealer.
Sometimes I mix it with a bb cream to create a lighter finish when I don't need the full coverage but I want a bit more than just a tinted moisturiser effect.
It can look a little shiny when first applied but with my combination skin with a bit of powder on top it looks more satin finished with no clingy dry patches.
If your interested I would definitely recommend trying it on in store or maybe getting a sample as I found that really helpful!
