Oriflame The One Illuskin Powder Review

In the month of October Oriflame has launched The One collection and few bloggers were chosen to test and try the products. This month I have received a few products for review and one of those is the Oriflame The One Illuskin Powder.

Product: The texture of the Oriflame The One Illuskin Powder is quite silky and smooth.


Ingredients: TALC, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, ZEA MAYS STARCH, DIMETHICONE, ZINC STEARATE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, SILICA, OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, SORBIC ACID, NYLON-12, HDI/TRIMETHYLOL HEXYLLACTONE CROSSPOLYMER, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, DISODIUM EDTA, PARFU


My Experience: My skin is oily-combination but tends to get dry during winters. Generally I need a long-lasting powder to set my makeup. Oriflame The One Illuskin Powder is a very smooth textured powder. The lightweight formula helps the powder to blend into the skin very easily, without leaving any chalky or cakey residues.  The skin becomes flawless and imperfections such as light marks or enlarged pores get covered quite efficiently. However, since it is a regular wear medium coverage powder, very dark spots will not be camouflaged totally. The powder is very fine and soft and has a tendency to get splattered around the pan. I would suggest using a brush rather than the applicator to get the maximum out of it. However this fineness enables the powder to give a naturally glowing skin. It stays beautifully glowing for a very long time.  If you are out in the sun, you may need to reapply after 4-5 hours. But the matte complexion it gives is just perfect for daily wear. The shades of the Oriflame The One Illuskin Powder looks very light in the pan. However, once you apply on the skin, the real colour can be seen.


There are 3 shades available in Oriflame The One Illuskin Powder:

Light



Medium


Dark


First when I saw the Dark shade in the pan I thought it would be perfect for my wheatish skin tone. However, after applying it, I could understand that it was quite dark than my natural complexion. So, I applied the Medium, and found that it is the perfect one for me, although it appears quite lighter in the pan.


Pros:

1. Gives a naturally enhanced complexion
2. Evens out skin tone
3. Can cover imperfections to some extent
4. Very long staying
5. Matte finish
6. Travel friendly packaging
7. Lightweight
8. Fine texture
9. Blends very easily
10. Provides medium coverage
11. Suitable for daily wear

Cons:
1. Tendency to fall out around the pan
2. The shades look lighter in the pan so it is best to try out before selecting
3. Can be a bit drying for dry skin

Rating: 4.5/5


Oriflame The One Illuskin Powder is a very nice powder for regular wear. It gives an even and flawless coverage for hours together and has a nice matte finish. I highly recommend this powder for all as it is currently available at a discounted rate of Rs.489.
