Experience with Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation:
The product has a nice packaging. It is enclosed in a glass bottle which has a pump dispenser at the top. The pump helps to squeeze out the product nicely. Like, if I need a tiny blob, it squirts the same amount. This is also easy to carry in your bag but do not put the bag abruptly as the glass bottle can break. Overall, the packaging is good and I liked it. It is easy to use and travel friendly.
Natural Beige is a warm beige color that looks good and goes well with the color of the complexion.
How to use this:
While using this for the first time, I took a pea sized amount which is enough for the face and neck. I used a flat top brush for the application of foundation nicely and evenly on the face. I can also use this with my fingers as this is not too thick or has formula which can be hard to blend over the skin. It’s just that when you use a flat top brush the foundation gets filled in the skin pores and the pores get vanished quickly.
The texture is thick and creamy so, it can be applied even with the finger pads. I find the application to be extremely easy and hassle free. It won’t leave the skin greasy and the formula of the foundation is non oily. By this, I mean it is not 100% non oily but there is slight greasiness but when applied on the face, it appears matte and even the minor flaws are also concealed. I will use a compact over that and my skin looks perfect with this foundation. I so love it honestly.
In summers, the foundation gives a nice matte finish for 2-3 hours but if you are under the sun the foundation melts and along with the sweat, the oils will also come. Therefore for the scorching heat and humid atmosphere, this may not be the perfect choice but if you stay inside the home and office in Air Conditioners, then this can be used perfectly fine even by the oily skinned ones.
In ACs, my skin stays quite good and just the T zone gets oilier after few hours as my skin is combination and oily in summers. During the winter season, when the season gets cold. This foundation acts beautifully. This has become my go to foundation. In winters, this works well for 5 hours. Therefore, when my skin gets oilier, I will use a compact to get rid of the oiliness and greasiness.
For dry skin, the foundation can stay for at least 8 hours and it will also moisturize the skin. It does not oxidize on the skin. The foundation gives a full coverage when layered.
