Nothing to disclose, I purchased the products shown.
This isn't a review of these products, simply some photos and thoughts on the color. The Missha 13 is also called "bright beige" and is the lightest shade they offer. You can find Missha through eBay or Amazon, prices are around $10 for a 20g container, around $20 for 50g.
Illamasqua's Skin Base 2 is similar to their 115 shade, described as "pink undertone with yellow." Skin Base 3.5 is the next darker pink undertone with yellow shade. There's a shade 3 between them, but that's described as olive yellow undertone. Frankly, I'm surprised there's so much difference between the 2 and the 3.5, I thought it would be less. Sephora offers Skin Base for $42 for a 30ml / 1 oz container, or direct from Illamasqua for £27.00.
To compare prices, Missha is quite a bit cheaper than Illamasqua. There's approx 28.35 grams in an ounce (28.3495), so dividing $42.00 by 38.35 makes Illamasqua is about $1.48 per gram. Missha is about 50 cents per gram for the smaller package, 40 cents per gram for the larger. Ok, got that?
Foundations swatched on bare skin. Photos taken inside, no flash.
First, dotted each on my arm
Swiped the dots down my arm
after a minute or two
Then I blended a bit more, and allowed a few more minutes
You can see the Missha looks a bit yellow here, but did turn a bit more peachy after a few more minutes while I was taking close up photos. It looked closer to the Skin Base 3.5. All the Asian bb creams I've tried have ended up oxidizing on me, but this one turned more peachy than orange.
I put some red arrows here to point out the Skin Base 2 - in person it's more noticeable, but harder to see in the pics.
Now back to the Missha. The additional blending made it appear more yellow than orange on me; I had done some quick swatches outside using just the Missha 13 and Skin Base 2 the day before and you can see the Missha looks a bit more peachy after oxidizing.
The Missha 13 could be a good option for those of you who are closer to the Illamasqua 3.5 shade, or if you wear the lighter shades in drugstore brand foundations. In years past, I would've worn this, but with Skin Base 2 being an almost perfect match, it makes it tough to beat. The price on the Missha is also a great thing to consider. All in all, it's worth checking out.
Hope you've found the pics and my thoughts on the shade helpful, and thanks for looking!
