Oriflame THE ONE ILLUSKIN Foundation

Friday, October 31, 2014 ,



Just like one cannot build a good building on a weak foundation, one needs to have  good skin inorder for one`s makeup to look pretty. So the easiest way to fake poreless and even toned skin is by using a foundation before applying any other face products. Foundation is base makeup which supports all the other stuff you apply to your face.

A Light Perfection Foundation which is part of the very recently launched The One Color Cosmetics Range by Oriflame is the  Illuskin Foundation.

Oriflame THE ONE ILLUSKIN  Foundation
Oriflame describes the product as :  Oriflame`s  The One Illuskin Foundation is a  Light Perfection Foundation based on the HaloLightTM  Technology to perfect and illuminate skin.  The foundation`s lightweight satin texture lets the natural beauty shine through. It has a buildable coverage for a fresh, natural finish. The formula is oil-free which means no shine on face. With the added benefit of SPF 20.

Packaging : The foundation is packaged in a transparent glass bottle with a navy blue plastic pump top which has a transparent plastic lid. The pump is lockable to prevent product spillage while travelling. It is also hygienic to use the product by dispensing it with a pump rather than dipping one`s brush or fingers in a jar.  Also the fact that he bottle is transparent makes one know in adavance when it is time to repurchase the product. The pump dispenser releases pea-sized product in every press. Atleast 2-3 pumps are required to cover the whole face and neck.

Quantity and Price : Each 30 ml foundation bottle is priced at INR 799/- which makes the product very affordable considering that a 3o ml bottle should last for atleast 2-3 months even if worn regularly.

Shades Available: The are 4 shades of the foundations available for various skintones. They are 30596 – Porcelain, 30598 – Nude Pink, 30600 – Natural Beige and 30601 – Olive Beige.  The 4 basic shades are suitable with complexions having different colored undertones… pinkish, brownish, olive undertones and fair complexions. Usually a blend of any two suitable shades helps in achieving the perfect foundation shade for one`s skin.

Consistency and Texture : This foundation has a fluid-cream consistency and when taken on the fingertips feels very smooth and absolutely non-sticky and non-oily which I really like. Despite being non-oily , the velvety feel of the foundation is very prominent. Can`t wait to get it on my face J

Ease of Application :  The foundation was very easy to blend on the face. I usually use a foundation brush or a stippling brush to apply my foundation and then blend out the foundation with a dense buffing brush to get an even finish. I noticed that this foundation gave me a good amount of time to work it into my skin and didn’t settle only where it was applied initially.  

Finish on Face, Product Feel  and Coverage :  On blending well, the Illuskin foundation left my skin velvety smooth. The initialmost application gave me medium coverage which is usually enough for me in real life but when I`m filming a youtube video or when I know I will be photographed like on occasions, etc I prefer a little heavier coverage.  So I applied another layer to test out the product and Wallaaah…Magic ! … this foundation made my skin so clear and cleanlooking. It almost seemed like  second skin to me. The coverage was fantastic after the second layer applied on the face.

Staying Power : After the great looking results, it was time to test out how tough the product was. And I was so glad to notice that it performed quite well for atleast 6-7 hours and only after this timeperiod I felt the need to smoothen out the slight caking of the product occurring around my nose and that too because I have terribly oily skin. Otherwise I was quite pleased with the product`s staying power.

Special Recommendations : I would recommend this product especially for people having oily skintypes since this is an oil-free product and has great staying power. This does not mean that people with other skintypes should not give this affordable and very performance-oriented product a chance. It is quite a steal.

Availability : This product can be purchased with Oriflame dealers and from Oriflame offices all across India. It is also available online at www.oriflame.co.in

Value for Money Rating : 9/10

I would have like a slightly prettier packaging although the pump bottle is very convenient, hygienic and handy.

Overall Rating :  8.5/10
