Good morning!! Today’s post is Iba Halal Pure Skin Liquid Foundation Review
Though I have already shared my review on same in my recent youtube video. But all this time , I was contemplating to get the shade of this foundation right for me. I have got it in shade Ivory Fair which is pale for my medium skin complexion. I have tried mixing it with Maybelline Poreless+ Matte Foundation which is slight darker for my skin tone but was not able to nail down right shade for my skin tone.

Iba Halal Pure Skin Liquid Foundation Review
Iba Pure Skin Liquid Foundation is a unique ultra-blendable satin-smooth formula boosted with aloe vera, Vitamin E and rich minerals that provides –
- Full coverage to flawlessly cover spots, blemishes, dark circles and patch skin tone
- Dazzling glow that’s long lasting
- Breathable, oil-free, matte finish
- Sun protection with SPF 15
As name indicates,Iba Halal Pure Skin Liquid Foundation is creamy liquid makeup base housed in thick glass bottle ( 30 ml) which comes with pump dispenser. Pump on the top is secured tight by a slitted plastic lid that makes the packaging travel safe. I always prefer my foundations with a pump dispenser which effectively regulates the flow of the liquid makeup. Beside this after some uses, you can easily measure the pumps of the product required for single use. This not only reduce the product wastage but also saves time.
Iba Halal Pure Skin Foundation is avaialable in three shades– Ivory fair , Natural Beige and Golden Beige. Ivory fair is meant for very fair to fair skin tones, natural beige for fair to medium skin tones and golden Beige for medium to dusky skin tones. Unfortunately , I have got shade Ivory fair which is paler for my medium NC 42 skin tone. Natural beige should have been a better shade for my medium skin complexion.
Iba Halal Pure Skin Foundation has creamy texture which spreads smoothly on skin like a dream. Formula blends seamlessly imparting bright matte finish with light to medium coverage. Since the formula is light weight and breathable,it can be easily layered for higher coverage without looking cakey. Once set into radiant matte finish, foundation does not transfer and lasts for about 7-8 hours with minimal fading. It fades uniformly afterwards and does not look patchy.
On my dry skin, it spreads evenly on my moisturized skin without getting sticky, do not high light dry patches and wears comfortable without drying out my skin.However I think this is great foundation for oily skin as it exerts good oil control and gives long lasting matte finish. Iba’s foundation being an Halal makeup is devoid of harmful ingredients like parabens,sulphates and comes with SPF 15 which is another score point for this foundation makeup.
I prefer applying it with my damp YBP makeup perfector. It visibly cancels redness and imparts uniformity to my complexion.Somehow I get slightly streaky finish with foundation brush. But the texture of the foundation is creamy enough to be applied using your own fingers.On single layer , I get very natural matte coverage with blemishes and acne spots still visible. Since the shade has gone completely wrong for me, I can not comment on the white cast issue common with many foundations. However,it does not oxidise on me.
VANILLA RATINGS 8/10
Iba Halal Pure Skin Liquid Foundation is smooth creamy foundation makeup which comes in convenient pump bottle. Texture is blendable and is enriched with good ness of Vit E ,Aloe Vera & rich minerals.It is super affordable and comes with SPF 15 which protects skin from sun damage. I quite liked the bright matte finish of foundation which looks quite natural and does not transer. I find it it as great foundation for oily to normal skin considering the oil free formula and matte finish.Being Halal makeup, it is devoid of pork/animal fats , parabens,sulphates and alcohol. This is an amazing skin food cosmetic – couple of more shades in the line will make it more usable for Indian consumers.
