Hello lovelies!!!!!!!! How many of you use foundation to become fair???? Can makeup make you look fair and change your skin colour? Not at all, love your skin and its colour, makeup only enhances your features and foundation does not make you fair. Foundations are used to create a base for makeup, it only evens out your skin tone and makes it look fresh and flawless. Hence to look flawless, choose a foundation that is very near your skin tone, if a foundation blends well, it will look like you are wearing your own skin colour, then it’s the right shade. If a foundation makes you fairer or gives you a grey finish, it’s not the right shade for you. I am saying all this as I have a first- hand experience of choosing the wrong foundation shade for oneself. Today i am going to review the Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Foundation in shade Porcelain, which is the lightest of all shades, just like the Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin concealer I picked the wrong shade for the foundation too. Well!!! so in today’s post I am going to review this foundation.
Tonal basis The ONE IlluSkin made on the basis of technology HaloLight TM, which reflects light from the surface of the skin and fine visually smoothes skin tone, while providing a natural look, with any number of applications of the basics. The formula does not contain tonal framework oil and prevents the formation of oily sheen.

My take On the Product
The foundation comes in a glass bottle, with a pump dispenser and a plastic cap to cover the dispenser. The bottle is a heavy to carry although i have never used it while travelling so i don’t know whether it spills or breaks. The foundation shade I picked is Porcelain, and it has turned out to be a wrong shade for me as it leaves a grey finish on my skin. So I have decided to combine this shade with a bb cream and match it with skin tone. The foundation is thick liquid in consistency, it’s not runny nor creamy. The foundation gives a sheer and medium coverage. It does not cover pimples, blemishes or acne marks, it gives an even finish and a healthy dewy glow. The foundation blends really well into skin and has sun protection SPF 20.
The foundation is meant for beauties normal to dry skin. It does not give enough coverage to hide acne. So if you’re some who want a heavy coverage, give this foundation a skip. The foundation does not lead to breakouts or any kind of skin allergies. It meant more for office wear, just to get the healthy even glow.
- Gives a healthy glow
evens out skin tone
Does not lead to breakout or allergies
- Fails to hide blemishes and pigmentation
It would worth a buy if you have dry skin and want a sheer to medium coverage foundation that does not lead to skin problem, the you must give this foundation a try.
