Hello all! I know this is a day late and a dollar short but here I am! I am going to quickly review the ‘custom’ foundation IL MAKIAGE - WOKE UP LIKE THIS I am rating this 5 stars because in all honesty I have no complaints. I am very fair with cool/neutral undertones. My main struggle with foundation is that I have dry skin that can flake if the foundation is too thick and too matte. Not to mention that I don’t like to look cakey, I prefer the dewey natural look. Secondly, most fair foundations (and concealers) are too warm. They are typically very peachy, varying on the too orange or too pink, which doesn’t blend with the rest of my skin. On the quiz you will be asked about your skin type and what kind of finish you prefer your foundation to have. Next, you will see a series of pictures with different skin tones and you will choose which one you best resemble. You will go through this multiple times, slowly narrowing down what fits you best. Then, it will ask you about what your undertones are, what jewelry suits your skin best, and how you tan/burn. Next, it asks what you do before applying foundation (if anything), what tools you use (ex. brush, beauty blender etc.) and how often you wear foundation. Additionally, you will be asked what foundation you are currently using and what your skin concerns are. A few quick questions later and you will be asked to enter your email and your shade and foundation will be chosen. The foundation itself applies beautifully. I love it, I have never had such an amazing experience with a foundation or anything like it. My only complaint is the price. You do get to try it for free, only pay shipping, but after 14 days (if you haven’t sent it back) you will be charged the price. Completely normal and expected. The price point is more in the “luxury” range, hitting $44. It is a decent sized bottle and I only needed two pumps (pea sized drop) to completely cover my face. Overall, if you have ever struggled finding your shade and don’t mind spending $44, I 100% recommended this product.
IL MAKIAGE-WOKE UP LIKE THIS
Just wanted to share with you what I received from Il makiage and share my thoughts. It's a Italian makeup brand. Woke Up like this foundation- Lightweight texture, natural matte finish. Brow Factor long wear eyebrow gel - I can't get enough of it. Love it so much. It's so easy to apply and it stays on all day long. Brushes- handmade and of high quality. Easy to use. Applies very smooth. I highly recommend you add this brand to your makeup collection. It's so worth it.

Love Them Both!
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation and I go way back but I’ve recently tried IL Makiage Woke Up Like This and honestly I love them both. They are similar down to the packaging! Both mattifying, both long lasting, and both full coverage. They are about the same price so the only reason I would purchase Lancôme over IL Makiage is because I can purchase it in Sephora or Ulta the day I run out. IL Makiage is only sold online.
