I have always used Lotus Herbals Foundation since its launch, but have tried this new one to see if it works for my skin. New foundation has been launched by the brand Oriflame named “The One Collection”. This has beautiful actress Huma Qureshi as its Face. Among them I have recently reviewed mascara, eyeliner and today I have review of its foundation named “The One Illuskin Foundation SPF 20”.

 My view about Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation SPF 20:
This product comes in a glass bottle packaging that has pump cap. This pump is used to lock rotating, while the top cover is transparent top. 

The texture of the foundation is just perfect that not too thick or runny. Just 2 pumps are required to apply on the full face and neck. This is also suitable for my normal skin and doesn’t get greasy with time. I have used this in winter, is idea about how this will stay in summers. This gives medium coverage and adds a little dewy effect. It isn’t too matte to look dull on the skin. The smell is too light that can hardly be noticed. It gives a lovely fresh look to the skin.

I have used Natural Beige in the FOTD which suit my wheatish skin tone really well. I haven’t applied any powder over it, but will prefer while leaving out. 

 The stay power of the foundation is about 8-10 hours and the best part is, it has SPF 20 to protect my skin during day time. Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation SPF 20 is very easy to blend on the skin abd doesn’t give grey cast. This gives a natural looking skin and is ideal for even daily use. It doesn’t melt, cake or cause any breakouts. This is not too hyper foundation to give full coverage, but does cover few flaws like pores and scars to some extent like in the pic below.

Do I recommend Oriflame The One Illuskin Foundation SPF 20?
Yes, this is a good buy foundation if you want to look natural at any given time. This has good consistency and stay power, but shade options are low and the flaws coverage could have been better. But, a good buy if you want something for a natural looking skin.
