Oriflame The One Illuskin Face Primer Review

To apply foundation properly can often be a challenge, specially if you are staying in  hot and humid climatic conditions. I too face these problems of excessive sweating where my makeup often wears off. However, for people like us, there is a solution in the form of primers. And today I will be talking about Oriflame The One Illuskin Face Primer.


About Oriflame The One Illuskin Face Primer:
Create the perfect canvas for makeup with this tone-enhancing face primer. Evens out skin tone, extends the wear of your foundation and minimises the appearance of pores*. With HaloLight Technology™ for a subtle healthy glow.


Price: Rs.549 for 30ml Available here at 30% discount


Packaging: Oriflame The One Illuskin Face Primer comes in a navy blue paper outer packaging. The tube is white with a blue twist open cap.


Product: The primer is white in colour with a thin texture and a nice smell


My Experience: I have used 2-3 primers before and most of them are in gel texture. However Oriflame The One Illuskin Face Primer is white in colour. The primer has a lotion and light texture and when applied it can give a whitish cast on the skin. Specially if you have dry skin I would suggest either using a moisturizer prior to it, or mix some hydrating agent with it. It takes some time for the primer to get absorbed into the skin. But when it does it provides a nice veil on the skin.


The Oriflame The One Illuskin Face Primer is good to be used under foundation that has luminous finish for making it stay for a long time and for a more flawless coverage. It provides a moderately smooth canvas for your foundation. I could see that generally foundations that last for a good 4-5 hours, lasting even longer for about a good 6-8 hours.  The primer does a good job in making the makeup last longer and provide a smoother canvas. However, it does not do the same job of making the skin velvety flawless as the gel primers, and can be difficult to work on Dry skin.


Pros:
1.Makes the makeup last much longer
2.Gives a smooth finish to skin
3.Good packaging
4.Good for oily combination skin
5.Gives a good base for makeup

Cons:
1.Can take time to work on dry skin
2.Can be a bit whitish on skin

Rating:4/5


Oriflame The One Illuskin Face Primer is a decently working primer that provides a flawless base for your makeup. The makeup lasts longer without melting or wear-off.
