Oriflame Says :- Morning-fresh make-up-all day long! Light diffusing properties and emollients give your skin silky softness and an even complexion, whilst mattifying properties mean easier, more comfortable make-up application. The result is the perfect base for your make-up and
a wonderfully radiant finish.
Ingredients :- Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isonony Isononanoate, Cyclohexasiloxane, Talc, Carylyl Methicone, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Polyethylene, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, BIS-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Methyparaben, Propylparaben, Silica, Titanium Dioxide, Ethylene Brassylate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium EDTA, Dimethicone, Alumina, Triethoxycaprylysilane
My Opinion :- Oriflame Face Primer the old version of this Perfecting Face Primer had the honor of being Truly Your's first ever primer. I used the old one twice and have been using the new one every winter or whenever my skin feels a little dehydrated. When Oriflame relaunched this primer, they declared that it was better than Mac Prep+ Prime, I haven't used the Mac Primer therefore I would not be able to compare the two. Anyways today I am going to put forward my views on this Oriflame Beauty Perfecting Face Primer. We use primers to create a base for foundations etc and to make the makeup last long. I have an entire post dedicated to primers here.
Oriflame Beauty Perfecting Face Primer tube comes boxed in a black cardboard box which carries all the necessary information like the ingredient list, product details, manufacturing and expiry dates respectively. The actual primer comes in a white translucent plastic tube with black fonts and a black screw-on cap. This tube packaging is classy, hygienic as well as travel-friendly. The neck of the tube (nozzle) is blunt like medicated ointments and gets messy, so once in a while I need to clean off the nozzle and the cap with a tissue.
This primer is white and a little runny, smells of some shampoo I can't remember right now :P But the scent is not overpowering, its mild and fades off after some time of application. As the primer is thin and creamy, it spreads on the skin without any effort. Oily skin beauties will not require an additional moisturiser as this primer comes with enough moisturising abilities. It adds a dewy glow to the skin upon application but does not make the skin slippery like a silicon based primer ought to do.
Oriflame Beauty Perfecting Face Primer gives minimal longevity to the makeup. I have oily skin and in the summers, the primer makes my T-zone shiny even in an air-conditioned environment. This primer does nothing for the fine lines but it minimizes pores to some extent. The Perfecting Primer contains a ton of silicon, it didn't irritate my skin or break me out. Also it's not mattifying, it lends a dewy finish to the skin and since I have very oily skin I tend to use it in the cold weather or whenever my skin feels a little dehydrated. Dry and normal skin girls will love this primer at all times. If you are on a budget or starting on primers, go ahead and grab this during one of those lucrative Oriflame sales. Its an affordable (Rs 429) desi primer and the first I ever came across and used from the Indian market.
* Affordable (compared to Colorbar, Loreal, Revlon etc)
* Hygienic & travel-friendly packaging
* Doubles up as an eye makeup base
* Minimizes pores slightly
* Spreads easily on the skin
* Very light-weight formula
* Adds dewiness to the skin (Oily skin beauties might not like this feature)
* A little goes a long way
* Doesn't break me out and irritate my skin
* No significant increase in makeup wear time
* Makes the T-zone shiny after an hour or so
* Available only through Oriflame consultants
* Makes my skin sweat in the summers
* No blurring of imperfections
I rate Oriflame Beauty Perfecting Face Primer 4 out of 5, I have given a high ranking because except the first and 2nd cons the other three are negligible. This is one of the first primers I came across in the Indian market and that too with an affordable price tag. Recommended for beginners and girls with dry & normal skin, also oily & combination skin girls can give a try during winters.
