Some time ago, I signup for The One by Oriflame campaign. Well today, I'll share my first opinion about the face products : foundation, concealer and powder. I read all kinds of stories, that they are great or not so great, what I can say is that I found myself pleasantly surprised by these products. At least the foundation is the best from the Oriflame catalog so far. But let's go over each product one at a time and I'll share my thoughts along the way.
The One Illuskin Foundation
It's a light foundation, with SPF 20 and 30 ml. It is a liquid foundation with medium coverage. It is buildable and can be worn in layers without the cakey or mask look. It comes in a glass bottle so you can see the product through the container. It comes equipped with a pump so you can easily dispense the desired quantity. The shade I got was Natural Beige and it matched perfectly with my skin tone. It holds fairly well when set with powder; if you don't set with a powder, it doesn't hold that well. But as the rule goes, whatever is applied on the face/eye, cream or liquid texture it must be set with powder to ensure that it doesn't fade throughout the day. I applied it every time with the Real Techniques sponge and each time I got that healthy looking skin effect.
The One Illuskin Concealer
The Nude Beige shade goes perfectly and compliments the foundation shade, quite well. It has 10 ml of product. It illuminates the area and hides dark circles under the eyes pretty well. For more coverage, you can apply it before and after foundation. If you are a person with deep dark circles, then I don't recommend buying it because you wont be satisfied. It covers small imperfections like red dots and little blackheads. You can find it in 3 shades.
The One Illuskin Powder
For the powder, I'm in the Medium shade . It contains 8 gr. of product. It is a compact powder which does it's job very well. It sets the foundation and reduces sebum and oil excess. It spreads very well on the face and does not gather in fine lines. It can be found in 3 shades and comes with a mirror and a sponge. It lasts very well on the skin without leaving spots during the day.
All the Illuskin products are formulated with HaloLight technology which offers skin luminosity for a healthy and more natural look. To ensure the quality of these products, I used them on both myself and on various models, including photo sessions and I got exemplary results each time. I'll show you a before/after photo of me, so you can see the degree of coverage and results for yourself!
