Grimas Cream Foundation

Grimas is a Dutch make-up company that creates cosmetics for professional use and is favoured by face painters, theatres and professional make-up artists around the world. The brand seems to be rather uncommercial and difficult to come across. I discovered Grimas about two years ago, quite by accident actually during one of my many Internet make-up researches:) 

My first ever Grimas purchase was an eyeshadow palette - absolutely brilliant - and I'll do a separate post on Grimas eyeshadows pretty soon...

I love cream foundation and it just so happens that Grimas makes a handy palette of 12 flesh tone shades that have been specifically chosen for photographic and beauty make-up. You can also purchase individual pots of the foundation. 

This is what the palette looks like: 
 ...and you can also unclasp the little pots from your palette if you wish...
 Here are some swatches:
 Top row: 1004, W5, B6, B4, B2, B1

Bottom row: J7, J5, J3, J1, G4, G0
So as you can see - no fancy packaging - it's all about the product.
Anyway onto my verdict regarding this cream foundation - I love it!!!
The foundation is unperfumed and an absolute dream to work with due to the ease of application. In fact, I'd say that the application process of this foundation is absolutely foolproof as it is incredibly creamy and thus very easy to blend. 
You only need a little to cover the whole face and the results are fantastic. This foundation literally melts into the skin and is virtually undetectable on the skin. 

I will most definitely be repurchasing this palette in the future and will probably get a bigger sized pot of my shade for personal use. 

If you'd like to learn more about the brand you can check out their product range on
I purchase my products from 1st Night either by phone or through
I'm absolutely ecstatic with their great customer service and super fast delivery time - in fact I ordered an eyeshadow palette yesterday and received it this morning! 

Have you tried any products from Grimas?
