After a disaster experience with The Body Shop Pencil Concealer reviewed Here, I’ve planned to never experiment with pencil concealers or anything other than creamy concealers. Creamy concealers gives a dewy finish and does not look rough or patchy on my dry skin so today my review is on Oriflame Studio Artist Concealer Illuma Fair which is a creamy concealer.
I Know this is not how it is supposed to be (without the cap), I lost the cap somewhere, I’m too careless when it comes to storing my makeup, need to be a little organized now. Planning to get drawers which can store all my makeup in one place!
Illuma-Flair light-reflecting complex diffuses light to minimize fine lines and imperfections – dark circles, blemishes and veins seemingly disappear under a perfectly natural finish. Buildable coverage and moisturizing formula ensures weightless, comfortable wear and a stunning result.

My Take on Oriflame Studio Artist Concealer Illuma Fair:
Oriflame Studio Artist Concealer comes in a squeezable tube with a thin nozzle top and a screw cap which I lost somewhere. The packaging is sturdy and convenient. The texture of the concealer is smooth and moisturizing which is great for dry skin like mine. I mostly prefer creamy concealers as they don’t make my under eye area look patchy and rough because they tend to glide smoothly and easily. I got the shade Medium as I knew it would be perfect for my dark circles coz they are dark than the rest of my skin, I knew the shade dark would be too dark for me and light would be extremely light for my problem areas so I decided to get shade medium for me which proved somewhat to be a right decision. I have 3-4 concealers with me right now but I mostly like to use this one as it besides hiding my problem areas do not make them rough, patchy or dry so I can layer on without fearing of the product making me look rough.
The concealer is beige in color with pink undertones. The coverage it gives is pretty much sheer but can give a little more than that by building up. It won’t be able to hide heavy dark circles or major redness and acne marks. I use it mostly on my under eye area, on my acne marks which are not much and around my nose to hide the redness and it does the job well though I need to build up the coverage to get good effect. It gives a slight illuminating effect too. It settles as a dewy finish which is great for dry skin or for those who like dewy finish from their products but the finish can be made matte by topping your base with compact or loose powder. The part where this concealer lacks is that it settles into fine lines after a few hours because of which I always keep wiping the product under my eye area with my ring finger, be it public place which becomes quite a weird situation for me, but that must be because I layer too much product just to get good coverage which results in it getting clumped and settled into my fine lines.Swatches:
- Sturdy and convenient packaging.
- Sheer to buildable coverage.
- Smooth creamy texture.
- Doesn’t dry out the skin, it’s moisturizing and gives dewy finish.
- Comes in 3 shades so you probably can find your match.
- Blends easily.
- Doesn’t look ashy or patchy.
- Has very light weight texture.
Cons of Oriflame Studio Artist Concealer Illuma Fair:
- Won’t be able to cover heavy dark circles and major problem areas.
- Not easily available.
- Sets into my fine lines after few hours because I go overboard with applying it.
- Shade selection could be a little more.
