Oriflame The One Illuskin Blush in Shimmer Rose Review & Swatches

Hi everyone,
I hope you liked my last post where I talked about an eye liner brush for 45 bucks ;) Talk about affordability ;) You may check it out here. In the last few months I have talking about Oriflame's - The One Collection which was exclusively launched in India and made available to the general masses in October 2014. You may read more about it here. I have already done an in depth review of the Illuskin Blush in Pink Glow. You may check it out here. Today I shall review Oriflame's The One Illuskin Blush in Shimmer Rose. Read on to know my detailed review of the same....



Ingredients List:
TALC, MICA, DIMETHICONE, OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STEARATE, ZEA MAYS STARCH, ZINC STEARATE, SILICA, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, SORBIC ACID, HDI/TRIMETHYLOL HEXYLLACTONE CROSSPOLYMER, NYLON-12, TIN OXIDE, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, LAUROYL LYSINE, GLYCERIN, DIISOSTEARYL MALATE, DISODIUM EDTA, AQUA, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, CARBOMER, SODIUM LACTATE, POLYSORBATE 20, PALMITOYL OLIGOPEPTIDE, PALMITOYL TETRAPEPTIDE-7, CI 77891, CI 45380, CI 77491, CI 15850, CI 77007, CI 77499, CI 77492





Price: Rs.599/- for 4g. Available across all Oriflame representatives across India.



What does the brand say about the product:
  • Instantly create contoured cheeks - Sculpt & define with the darker shade or highlight with the lighter, shimmering shade.
  • Transfer Resistant -  Doesn't transfer off easily through rubbing or exposure to moisture.
  • Moisturizing ingredients for added comfort to help prevent a dry experience.
  • Buildable coverage with great pay off.
  • With Halo Light technology for reflective finish & subtle lustre




The blush comes in a cute compact purple packaging. This blush is a part of the Everyday Beauty collection which comes under The One Range.The packaging resembles - The One Illuskin Powders which I have reviewed before on my blog. You may check it out here. It comes with a clean film type plastic which saves the mirror from getting dirty. It does not have any brush but comes with a inbuilt mirror which is perfect. It is so tiny that it can fit in the smallest of purses, cluthes and handbags. Hence it is travel friendly but it is quite fragile and if messed around with the product could get shattered.


I have used no make up beneath the blush only Loreal Paris cream for 30+ (excuse my dark circles) 

The shade is  best described as coralish pink. There is no shimmer to the blush part. The  highlighter is a rosy shimmery shade unlike the Pink glow one I had reviewed this has more sheen. In fact the glitter shows more on this one which is not to my liking  but it still makes a decent highlighter.The blush is perfect for contouring in my opinion. I usually apply blushes in the hollows of my cheeks as I have a round and chubby face. The lasting power is amazing. It lasts all day until you take it off. It is waterproof and not chalky at all. It blends smoothly and evenly. There is nothing much I can complain about honestly :D


The Good:
Easily available through an Oriflame representative
Inexpensive
Pigmentation is nice and buildable.
Color is perfect for day & night look also
Lasts all day
Shade is perfect for contouring
Comes with a highlighter which adds a nice glow to the cheeks.
Comes in a compact form with a mirror
Travel friendly

The not so Good:
Does not come with a brush.
Highlighter is a bit too shimmery for my liking.

Rating: 4.5/5

Oriflame's The One Illuskin Blush in Shimmer Rose is a perfect blush to contour the cheeks . Along with a highlighter it  makes a perfect duo for any make up vanity. I recommend everyone to try this blush.

  2. These are so hott! And what makes them best for me is that they come in a duo form along with a highlighter. .One can use the colors on their own or make your own combination if you’re feeling creative.
