My Experience With Oriflame the One Primer

The primer comes in a tube which is very convenient to carry around as it is quite compact. This primer is from their – “The one illusion” range. The color of the primer, as you can see in the swatch is opaque white and the consistency is quite thick. I would almost compare it to a lotion. My personal opinion is that primers should be lightweight. Since we will already be putting makeup on top, primers should not feel thick but rather light and smooth. But this primer does none of those things. I was very disappointed when I used this primer because it sits on top of the skin like a white layer and does not get absorbed. It will be an absolute nightmare for girls with oily skin because the primer is so greasy and so oily! It will literally make your makeup slip and slide. However, there is one interesting way in which you can use it! You can mix a small amount of this with your foundation and when I did that I found that it does not make the foundation oily. In fact, it makes the foundation look rather natural. So you can mix it up with a thick foundation to sheer it out.

I absolutely dislike white residues.
But that trick with the foundation is a nice one!
Anyway, won’t be going for this one!
Thanks for the honest review, Varnika!

Always love your reviews.. :love
I thought this primer would be good but it isn’t. Looks like you can’t say anything about oriflame products. Some of them are quite good while others are just not worth it!
