Amazing foundation for sensitive skin, great coverage and feels nice on the skin
Most Helpful Criticism
I wanted to love this foundation but it's quite runny and applies very sheer.
GreatAhhhh i love this so much!! I have tried 3 different 100% pure foundations and theyve all let me down (broke me out in small pimples, enhanced try patches etc) but the inika foundation is just beautiful. I love the smell of it, the color is perfect with my ecotan (shade cream for when i dont use tan). And the coverage is buildable which i love!
AmazingAmazing foundation for sensitive skin, great coverage and feels nice on the skin
winner!!!!!Such a good foundation, perfect coverage and such a light weight feel
holy grailI really like this foundation and the colour, but as others have said, it is very pricey. It does last me a while which is good otherwise I couldn't buy it often.
Really pretty and natural lookingReally lovely natural looking foundation. Definitely not a fill coverage as it is quite sheer. Colour is nicely pigmented and the consistency is nice and blends well. Perfect if you want a natural light foundation
Nice dewy foundationThis is a lovely foundation with Hyaluronic acid so it keeps your skin looking plump. It's great for anyone who loves natural beauty. I used this when I wanted heavier coverage but also used the BB cream for daily use
Great productI am in my 40s with dry skin. I was after a foundation for everyday wear to work. The Inika Foundation has great coverage foundation without looking to heavy. The package dispenses a bit too much - just under one pump is the right amount. I will be buying it again.
Natural glowy foundationI purchased a trial size of this foundation in beige. For reference I am Chinese with medium skin tone which tans easily. The beige is a really neutral shade and blends in quite nicely with my skin tone, a great match.
I found the product a bit hard to work into the skin - it dries quite quickly and the beauty blender wasn't able to blend it very well due to it drying. I couldn't rub it in with fingers only either due to how quick it dried and leaving marks. I ended up using a combo of these methods and the end result is a really natural, sheer to medium coverage, flowy finish which is quite beautiful. It has a mild tacky feeling which I dont mind, it's likely due to the hyaluronic acid in the product.
I was hoping for an easy foundation I could just apply with fingers and without a mirror but that definitely isn't that case for this one, it needs more work. I might try a foundation brush next time. Overall though, I love the end result.
Foundation I have been using for 2+ yearsThis is such a staple for myself. It gives a nice light coverage and covers any redness and evens out my skin tone. In the past I was not able to use Inika products due to my acne and to be honest it make it appear worse but for fairly clear skin I highly recommend.
Great everyday foundationI have sensitive, oily combination skin that is prone to breakouts and reacts to a lot of foundations I’ve tried in the past, therefore ending up with very sore and large red bumps. I’ve been searching for a foundation that doesn’t cause this, and I’ve finally found it! Inika foundation is lightweight, I’d say it has sheer to medium coverage, but if you’d like more coverage, you can always put some of their baked foundation over the top. It also smells great. It leaves my skin with an even glow and it’s great to know I can use this everyday and not cause my skin harm with any nasties. I love the Inika range and it is now my go to brand for makeup.
Good but coverage could be betterHaving used other organic foundation in the past, I was pleasantly surprised by Inika. The shade was good for me, and it doesn’t look bad by the end of the day (a bit greasy, but not terrible). I apply it with my fingers, working quickly. If you have blemishes to cover, it’s probably not the best choice, as coverage is on the lighter side.
Smells nice, but not the right colour for meEven though Inika says beige suits average white skin tones, I feel like it is on the darker side. However, it is perfect for my sister. She like me has incredibly sensitive skin too.
Amazing to Have an Organic Optionskin type: Fair/yellow base with freckles Dry sometimes sensitive
I really enjoy this product, I first of all bought a trial pack which was great value and I didn't even finish the samples before purchasing full size products!
The liquid foundation works well with a primer or really hydrated skin prior to application. It can at first feel a bit waxy or sticky but this subsides and leaves a lovely fresh coverage and a slight glow to the skin. I would recommend a fixing powder or spray as I have notice my nose needing a touch up later in the day. I love the fact that I can get a good coverage and feel in an organic foundation, the organic factor is becoming more and more important to me and the products I purchase. I would recommend this product.
Thumbs up from meInika is my preferred cosmetic brand. The liquid foundation is easy to blend and lasts a long time (I like to use their setting powder over it to extend it's wear). It also doesn't break me out like standard 'supermarket' make up does which is a plus. Would definitely recommend this foundation.
As good as organic comesMy favourite foundation when it comes to organic beauty. Of course it wears off and is much more sheer than foundation with chemicals, but of all the natural and organic brands I've tried, this is definitely the best. I continue ordering this time and time again.
My favourite foundationI love this foundation because it creates a beautiful and flawless look and natural looking coverage. This is a great everyday makeup because I feel the organic ingredients are healthier for the skin and also is non comegenic which means the makeup does not block the pores and cause acne.
I use a mix of shades to contour with and mix together to create my desired shade :)
Sets too quicklyI was excited to try this foundation after trying the loose mineral powder and being very happy with the powder.
When I first applied I noticed how cool it was on the skin and how lovely it felt on application.
This then quickly changed...... The foundation sets really quickly. Which can cause caking on the skin and a very uneven coverage. It literally will not budge once set.
I hate wastage so I am reluctantly using the remainder but have just placed an order for an alternate product because I just find it so difficult to work with.
If your super quick with application and don't like building up your coverage then it may work for you but it's a no from me ;o(
The best foundationI have oily/combination skin and struggle with congestion. This foundation not only is hydrating and organic but the coverage is amazing and it doesn't clog pores! Would absolutely recommend this product and I wouldn't use anything else on my face
Great foundationI’ve used this foundation for years and I love it!
I love that is organic, vegan and leaves my skin looking flawless. I’m hispanic and the shade I use is honey.
One thing though it leaves my skin quite shiny, so I try other products to make my skin Matt. It looks even shinier in summer so now that I have J Iredale’s compact I’ll see how I go for this summer coming.
Good to add some colour to faceI bought this foundation as a night colour/tan. It works very good on oily skin, and I totally recommend.
Love it!I love this moisturiser-Hybrid, as someone who has sensitive and easily dehydrated skin, this is a great product! Its brilliant for day to day and can easily be combined with a bit of powder and a dust of colour in the form of bronzer, blush, highlighter or contour for events.
Very sheerI wanted to love this foundation but it's quite runny and applies very sheer.
Great ingrediants not great coverageI do like this foundation but I still feel its more of a BB cream . Nice when you want a very natural look but doesn't stay on all day and what give you that done up look. Very light coverage. I feel this foundation would be good for women with skin sensitivities or really blessed with natural flawless skin.
Good Formula but Light CoverageI find this mineral foundation to be comfortable and light weight, but coverage is quite sheer. It is buildable but it's not the best mineral foundation I've tried. I'm not a huge fan of the shade range either.
light weight yet good coverageThis lightweight foundation provides a good coverage and feels natural on the skin. Paired with the hydrating make up primer it lasts all day and gives you a dewy natural glow ..This is the best mineral foundation I have found
Nice finish but very hard to blend.Its stickyThis foundation is not blendable and very sticky..Need to spend 15min trying to make it look perfect but once I’m done it looks very nice and natural and I like that..I use Giorgio Armani Luminious Silk And I absolutely love that foundation.The best one I have ever had but my beauty therapist told me to buy organic/mineral makeup and I decided to get Inika Primer and Inika foundation. Maybe I shouldn’t apply it with the beauty blender?Dont know why it’s so sticky.....?
WearabilityEasy to apply, good coverage and holds pretty well in the tropics.
I have fewer skin breakouts since using this.
Love that it's vegan and cruelty freeI was recommended this product by the Adore Beauty girls because it was a cruelty free product that was great for glowy skin. I love the texture of this product and agree it gives a lovely "glowing" effect to the skin.
Unfortunately, I don't think it's the best product for my winter skin right now as it clings to dry patches quite badly. I've also noticed a bit of oxidisation at the end of the day.
I'm looking forward to using this product in summer and seeing how it fairs!
Amazing! I've re-purchaded 8 times!So good for your skin, doesnt break me out. Gives a duey glow without making you look oily. I love it and would 100% recommend. Plus it's cruelty free!
Not very goodI didn't like this foundation at all. It was very oily on my skin and did not sit well. Definitely wouldn't buy again.
Great Foundation that's good for your skinI swapped from using the Body Shop's foundation to this after reading about chemical nasties in foundations, I was a bit worried it wouldn't work well or wouldn't feel nice but have been pleasantly surprised! I would recommend this foundation, good buildable coverage but doesn't feel like you are wearing makeup. I used the online foundation matcher and it worked well, matches my skin. Good product.
Can't go past this!Perfect coverage, silky smooth.
My Skin Loves This Foundation!I've been using this foundation for over a year for day use. I get so many compliments about how glowing and healthy my skin looks. It is very lightweight and allows freckles to come through while covering up any redness. Unlike many other foundations that I find clog my pores and cause breakouts, this one somehow leaves it looking and feeling clearer after it's washed off at the end of the day. I'd highly recommend for anyone wanting a natural looking foundation.
GREAT FOR SENSITIVE SKINI have been using this product since i got introduced to it by a friend who owns her own beauty salon. I have sensitive skin where i am allergic to aloe vera but this product does not react with my skin at all. I wont use anything else
Beautiful consistency and coverageI have been looking for a foundation with medium coverage that doesn't look cakey or dry on my skin and I finally found it! I am obsessed! I always get compliments when I wear this foundation.
This foundation is quite thick, moisturiser and primer is a must. I wear it with just the slightest dusting of powder over the top because I don't like too much coverage.
FoundationI purchased 'Face in A Box' to try the variety of products that were in the box. I was wanting to by products that would not irritate my skin as I have Psoriasis. These products have certainly delivered. The foundation was part of the package. To be honest it has not irritated my skin, but I have found it to be cakey. I no longer use the foundation, but use the other Inika products.
Best foundation I've ever hadThis foundation feels really light but gives good coverage. I use the primer underneath and it blends really nicely. I think without the primer it might be a bit 'sticky'/ go on too thick. Overall this is the best foundation I've ever had though. My skin looks and feels so much healthier. It makes me realise how bad the chemicals in the other foundations I had been wearing probably were for my skin.
Great foundationI have been loving and wearing this foundation for maybe 3 or 4 years. It's long wearing but not cakey at all. I apply it with a brush for nights out and with my hands rubbed in during the day. Sometime I mix it with oil or spf to make it like a tinted moisturiser. I changed to a NARS one for night time use within this time but came back to this as I prefer it. Great product
Great Coverage - Strong SmellI really love the packaging, it feels and looks luxurious. The foundation is thick and I thought it would be hard to blend, but I used a damp stipple brush and it blended really easily. It gives a really good full coverage. I used my asap moisturizer with it and it gave me a dewy look. However, the smell is off putting. It smells similar to Benefit's boo boo balm, and (but not as strong as) Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour balm - it smells like medicine, or really strong essential oils. I have a sensitive nose and I don't like putting things on my face that smell too strong. I thought the smell would go away after a while, but it hasn't. While I have gotten a little more used to the smell, I don't think I will be purchasing this product again. I would recommend it to people who don't get bothered about the smell, because the foundation itself is really good. I think it is one of the best foundations I have used (minus the smell). I hope in the future they can reformulate this product to not smell as strong.
Best!I've been without a foundation for 18 months, using NARS tinted moisturiser instead. My skin has changed in the last couple of years and is dry and sensitive and prone to blackheads. Most foundations I tried broke me out even worse or my forehead ended up in a shiny mess when my skin is actually dry.
The Inika Certified Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation is PERFECT for my fair, sensitive late 30s skin.
I use a Perfect Potion moisturiser and NARS primer underneath. It's fine without the primer too but a little more matte than I like. I set with Youngblood Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Powder.
The only thing that remains untested is super hot, humid days, but nothing has survived that unscathed.
Great productVery light weighted , my skin can breathe. Great for everyday use and the colour perfectly matches my skin tone.
Thanks AdoreBeauty for fast & safe delivery
Great every day foundationI'd been looking for a foundation to replace the discontinued Becca Luminous Skin Colour. I found getting a light coverage with Becca's own replacement, Radiant Skin, too fiddly. Enter Inika - easy to get light coverage or medium coverage and feels great on my skin. I'm on my second bottle and still love it.
Great foundation!Inika Liquid Mineral Foundation is a great foundation! Consistency is smooth and it glides on effortlessly! Plus the colour (Cream) matched my fair skin so well! However, it does dry a little quick for my liking so you really have to blend well, but that doesn't take away from what a quality organic foundation this is.
I love that it is free of all things toxic for your skin - no parabens, sulphates, paraffins and is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals for your skin. Will definitely repurchase!
very happy with the coverage and feel of the foundationI wanted a natural product because i am breastfeeding and my little daughter touches my face and kisses/slobbers on me all day long. I felt funny about her eating my old chemical makeup off my face so Inika seemed perfect to try.
I purchased the beige colour and am so happy with it, the colour is neutral, not too orange and i feel good about wearing something that isn't made up of random chemicals. It does have a fragrance but its not too overpowering at all, it's fine.
I have already recommended it to my friends and I'm spreading the word about switching to natural and organic, it just seems to sit on the skin better than my old makeup.
ImpressedSo hear it is! The liquid foundation I have been searching for! The non heavy, naturally flawless dewy look with staying power that nourishes my skin with moisture and also has a non intrusive scent. It's great to have found a foundation that doesn't irritate and is chemical free.
Great light coverage liquid foundationI have (usually ) blemish free skin with some red splotchiness around the cheeks and jaw line. My skin is generally normal-dry but drier in winter.
I have used many liquid foundations over the years and have found that those with
heavy scents usually irritate my skin. Although Inika's liquid foundation does have
quite a strong scent, it surprisingly didn't cause any problems for me.
I especially love the fact that this foundation feels light on my face, don't clog up
my pores and stays on all day. As the others reviewers have mentioned, it has a light to medium coverage. It won't cover acne and blemishes, but works well to cover redness and to even out skin tone.
The texture of the foundation is thick and creamy, so I found that it worked best for me when applying with fingers.
Simply FabulousI'm not a heavy makeup wearer but I do prefer a little something most days and the Inika liquid foundation is great. The new formula has a lighter scent which I prefer and I like the light coverage. The biggest factor for me is the organic formula and that I feel at ease using a product everyday that is free from harsh chemicals. I have purchased from Adore several times now and my orders always arrive quickly.
Fantastic natural look and ethical to boot!I love the ethics behind this brand. It's 100% animal friendly and vegan and the quality is beautiful. It offers a medium and natural coverage and I do like it a lot!
Like a turbo boosted tinted moisturiserI almost always wear a full coverage foundation, so when I dabbed a little on my hand I thought it just wouldn't cut it for me. I was wrong! It glided across my 40 year old, dry, fair skin, leaving it smooth and dewy. Despite being a lightweight foundation, I found that I only needed a touch of concealer as the coverage was better than I had expected.
I've used it nine times now and it wears well on my skin.
As for the fragrance, I love essential oils, so it really appeals to me. The scent is relaxing and not overpowering.
Overall, I really like this foundation.
Inika Mineral FoundationI found the coverage excellent and it smelt wonderful (although I would imagine the scent would be overpowering for some). It is quite oily needs to be shaken well before use. My skin felt soft and dewy after using it. Probably more suited to someone with dry skin. Although I liked it and will finish the sample I received, I wouldn't buy it again as it is quite pricey.
Inika's a WinnerI've just trialed the Inika Liquid Mineral Foundation in Beige so here's my review.
Overall I found this to be a really good product. It's a light to medium coverage, similar to a tinted moisturiser so if you want a heavy coverage this is definitely NOT the product for you. It's great for wearing during the day and for heavier coverage in the evening I just went over it with powder.
The colour was perfect for my skin tone and covered redness and blemishes really well. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised at how well it covers. It felt really light and my skin felt hydrated all day and not suffocated at all.
My skin felt great and really soft after removing the foundation and I wasn't left with any itching or soreness.
The only thing I didn't like about this product is the smell. It's very heavily perfumed and at first it was quite overpowering but a light dust of powder helped.
Overall I would recommend this as a great light coverage day foundation.
Great foundation for dry skin!I was provided a sample in the shade Tan. I used a foundation brush to apply and the product was easy to blend. It is creamy and felt hydrating on my dry skin. The foundation gave my skin a natural glow, without any added shimmer and the coverage is buildable. It has a strong, potpurri-type scent which I did not like at all. If the product was fragrance-free, I would have rated it a 5.
Inika Liquid Mineral Foundation Passes Girls Day Out Testwon a trial sample of Inika's Liquid Mineral Foundation (Honey) and was asked to review the product. I decided a great trial would be on a 12 hour girls day out.
The first thing that struck me was the slight perfumed scent. Just lovely.
When it comes to foundations I"m extremely fussy!!! So I wondered how this would fare on such a busy day. It fared brilliantly.
I was on a bus for 7 hours, laughing, singing, and having a great time. Several hours were spent sampling wine in temperature controlled rooms, whilst several hours were spent in the sun and heat. Therefore, my face, and therefore foundation, was given a work out and a half.
I purposely did not apply a dusting powder. I was complimented on how nice my skin looked. Even when I was sweating this foundation didn't run or wipe off. In fact it stayed on all day without that plastered on feeling. I found it felt light on my skin and felt like my skin could breathe. Usually after wearing foundation for some time my skin breaks out. More than 36 hours later my skin still hasnt got a blemish. The foundation did not come off easily with a tissue or just water, but a make up wipe and it wiped off with ease. To me, that signals a long wearing, light foundation that I can trust.
Somewhere between a foundation & tinted moisturiserThe best way I could describe this product is somewhere between a foundation and a tinted moisturiser. The consistency is quite thick but the coverage is light to medium.
Given the consistency, I think it would be easier to apply with a brush, as when I did it with my fingers, it started drying and I ended up with uneven coverage. For anyone who has used the KORA tinted daywear- this is a very similar product.
Overall, the pros are:
* mineral foundation
* nice dewy finish
* good product to mix with moisturiser for more even coverage
* dries quickly and can appear 'patchy' if not blended well
* slightly expensive when compared with tinted moisturisers which are half the price
* really need to apply with a brush
Great foundationI really like this foundation. When I wear it with a light dusting of powder on top, I ALWAYS get compliments on my skin. It's got quite a thick consistency so for me and my combination skin, it is great in the cooler months but might be a bit heavy in the height of summer. It feels nourishing on my skin and has good coverage. I'm very happy with it!
- Well, I've been a long time user of mineral makeup 8+ years now. But recently my skin has changed to being drier (most likely winter) however the oiliness of my skin has calmed down. Hopefully my skin is maturing! So I thought I'd try a liquid foundation instead of powder to up the moisture in my skin. I've tried the Eles mineral foundation and that is brilliant but a bit dark for my skin tone. So after all the great reviews I thought I'd give this foundation a go. Well, I'm bitterly disappointed. Not only does it make my skin drier (even though I have 2 layers of moisturiser and serum and the LM hydrating primer underneath) it doesn't give any coverage at all! I have no acne/blemishes etc to cover but this was basically just like a tinted moisturiser. If I only I could ask for my money back, yet another thing to sit in my drawer I guess!
