Shelf Life: 3 years
Packaging: This foundation comes in a very small, matte black, soft-plastic, tube-like bottle with a purple screw cap. The foundation comes out effortlessly through a gentle press on the tube through a spout-like opening. The packaging is classy and sturdy making the tube light weight and travel friendly.
Smell: Identical to that of cherries
Texture and Consistency: This foundation has a smoothie like texture which it claims and has a consistency more on a runny side.
My Experience: I tested this foundation when I had a night out and was getting ready. I took out the required amount of product at the back of my hand, dotted it on my face and started blending it up with a damp beauty blender. My high hopes didn’t last for even ten seconds which really hurts me. Even though this foundation really blends well into the skin, it has literally no coverage. After one application, I thought of giving it another try and applied one more layer to see if it can be build up or not. The coverage went on to light from being very light but I wasn’t happy at all. I removed the makeup, used another foundation and went out.
I gave this foundation another try next day while going to my grandmother’s place where I don’t need a high coverage and full glam. This time I applied it with my hands and the same thing happened. It blends in really well but has very light coverage. Also, this foundation has a smell which I am not a fan of. I wouldn’t really like my base makeup to smell like fruits and yogurt at all but thankfully the smell disappeared once I finished off my entire makeup.
|Blends well but leaves a whitecast|
Having a low-medium, matte-finish coverage base makeup on my face with almost no scars or blemishes covered, what even disappointed me more was the fact that this foundation leaves a whitecast on the skin, has only two shades available, is not sweat or water resistant and stays on for hardly two hours. After around two and a half hours, I could see that my makeup was all gone.
This has been second worst experience for me in my Oriflame haul after the Oriflame HairX Leave-In Conditioner. I am neither satisfied by the coverage, nor by the price point.

Will I repurchase it?
No. I am never going to waste my money on this foundation even if I get it for as low as Rs. 100.
Will I recommend it?
Never. This is one of those products which I guess everyone would regret buying.
Is it worth the money?
Not at all. It is very costly as per the quantity and quality they offer and is not at all worth the money spent.
My Ratings: 1/5 (I don’t find a reason to give it one star as well)
Final Verdict: Oriflame is definitely a good brand and offers a lot of products ranging from hair to feet care but I am sorry to say that this is one of their creepiest products. This is one of the worst foundations I could ever have and doesn’t cover up even the tiniest spots. Also I wish there was a better shade range available.
