Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation Review and Swatches

Hey beauties, today I have a non nail art related post. Last month, I shared that I received samples from the newly launched The One range of Oriflame. As the festive season is going on, I got plenty of time to test the new samples. 
Today, I am sharing my views on the Illuskin foundation.




The illuskin foundation doesn't feel heavy on the skin. It spreads evenly and get absorbed quickly. It evens out my skin and do not make it look caked up. A small amount is enough to cover the whole face. I used this in combination with my concealer as this gives a medium coverage. My shade is Olive Beige.

(Natural Light)

(Artificial Light)

Being a girl with sensitive oily skin my main concern is breakouts and this didn't break out my skin and didn't make it oily. It lasted a good six hours on my oily skin.

According to the company
The ONE IlluSkin Foundation 30 ml HaloLight Technology to perfect and illuminate skin Buildable coverage for a fresh, natural finish Oil-free formula means no shine.

The company has launched four shades in India. 
These are: 

Porcelain - Neutral Undertone
Nude Pink - Pink Undertone
Natural Beige - Yellow Undertone
Olive Beige - Yellow Undertone

The pump has a lock mechanism to avoid spillage.

It stays a good 5-6 hours on my oily skin.

Pros
