While reviewing Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige , I wanna share some of my previous makeup mishaps and mistakes. Getting a flawless, spotless, even tone base for makeup is every girl’s dream and I’m no exception. But whenever I tried to get that look earlier, I ended up a chalky, cakey skin that looked oh-so-made-up! Whether it was an important meeting during day, and evening out or a party night, I was always disappointed while applying the foundation and the mistake was obviously mine c’oz I opted for a wrong shade of my foundation. My Mom always suggested me to go for a shade even darker than my actual skin tone but I always ignored that advice and rather picked a shade even lighter than the real one, resulting in the makeup-blunder— chalky complexion. :p
1. For which complexion is Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige :
While choosing the shade for The One range of Oriflame foundations, mommy again advised with her fav pick-up line ‘less is more’ and I ordered for the shade, nude beige. That’s a bit understated for my skin tone, i.e. in between wheatish to fair.
Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige is a lightweight soft feel formula that blends very well on my skin especially when its well-moisturized. As I’m blessed with a spotless normal skin with a slightly ‘T’-zone, it has not at all a blending issue with me. But I guess, it would feel a bit greasy over oily skin. So my advice for the girls with oily skin would be a light, oil-free moisturizer beneath it for that non-sticky fresh look. Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige has a fresh floral fragrance that lasts for about a couple of hours after wearing it. It provides a good coverage spreads and settles well and henceforth creates a flawless canvas out of your skin to showcase your artistic talents with colors and brushes.
Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige is a long lasting foundation and has staying powers for up to 6 hours after application. Well, I’m not sure about summers, c’oz I started using it about a month back and it’s the fall winter season where there are no sweating issues. So, a whole day wear would lead you towards a tension-free look for hours while your skin looks perfectly done and your makeup doesn’t wear off easily. The SPF 20 makes Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige suitable for day wear and I’m perfectly sun-protected for hours in my hectic day schedule.
4. Perfect packaging for Oriflame The One Illuskin Nude Beige Foundation
Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige comes in a pressed pumped bottle that’s quite easy to accept. The pump ensures no wastage at all, as with a single press I extract only a Pea-size portion that’s sufficient for a single application. Also, the air-tight pump bottle is functional yet hygienic as the content never comes in skin as well as air contact that leads Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige towards a longer shelf life. The prescribed shelf life is 3 years from the date of manufacture, that’s quite longer when it comes to comparison with other brands that usually offer about 2 years of shelf life.
5. Affordable pricing for Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige
Priced at Rs. 799/- for 30 ml, Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Nude Beige is quite economic and good value for money. You have to pay almost double for the same quality and quantity if you opt for other International brand biggies.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
In a nutshell, I can state that I’ve got my kinda makeup after donning years of blunders. Because mom is always right, ‘less IS more’! 🙂
