Silk Creme 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!

the best coverage foundation!
Have used the foundation only once, but can say for sure that it is a good quality product, smooth, easy to use and blend. It covered imperfections that no foundation has before! The only con, of which I am not 100% sure yet is that it tends to go in the lines of your face and show them worse than when not wearing any make up! However that is my first impression, hope that's not true!
