Illamasqua LF115 and LF120 swatches
I wanted to compare Illamasqua's Light Liquid foundation shades LF115 and LF120 for you. The swatches comparing LF120 and Cream CF120 can be found here.
Please note that my "no flash" pictures show my true skin, whereas with the flash it's off. I haven't figured out why!
I smeared the blobs with a non-latex sponge, and snapped the pictures. You can see both on my skin, but the LF115 is a much better match right from the start.
I usually allow 15 minutes or so for the foundation to settle in - you know, the dreaded oxidation! The LF115 is a good match for me. In person it is slightly off, a faint yellow tinge to it, but I use that to counteract redness.
I drew black eyeliner boxes around the foundation because by this time it was getting harder to see the LF115.
The 120 would actually be doable, worn very sheerly. It's not what I'd call a perfect match, but honestly, this is far better than most drugstore brands, and considerably better than many other foundations I've tried. If I didn't have the RF105 / CF110 and the 115 shades to use, I'd settle for the 120. But luckily I don't have to settle!
I hope you've found these pictures helpful. Thanks for looking.
