Oriflame The ONE Colour Impact Eyeshadow Olive Green comes in a simple, fuss free plastic jar with a bold colored screw lid which remains common for all the shades. But, it is simple to identify the color as the jar is see through, in case you own a few of these colors. The lid shuts tightly and the compact packaging makes it travel friendly.
True to its name, Oriflame Olive Green is actually a muted olive green color with greyish undertones. I like the fact the color has a metallic sheen and is not bland in taste. I think olive greens suit Indian skintones to perfection and are great for those who shy away from trying dark and bold colors on the eyes. This color is understated and not OTT.
I am in love with the texture of the Oriflame Cream Eyeshadows! It is oh-so-creamy and just melts on the finger tips as you pick the color. I cannot resist comparing Oriflame The ONE Colour Impact Eyeshadows to the much hyped Maybelline Color Tattoo’s and surprise- surprise, I find texture of this one creamier and smooth. It is easy to blend when applied with fingers as compared to using an eyeshadow brush. One thing to keep in mind while applying this product is that it quickly sets to powder finish within seconds, so you need to work fast with this.
Everything you read until now, makes Oriflame The ONE Cream Eyeshadow in Olive Green a perfect cream eyeshadow except there is a glitch when it comes to pigmentation. This particular shade isn’t as pigmented as it looks in the jar – Ugggh!! It requires multiple swipes to get opaque coverage on the eyes. Surprisingly, when swatched on hand, it just took me two swipes to build the intensity. On the eyes, I have layered it multiple times and yet as it can be seen in the eyemakeup, the coverage is still a bit uneven. Nonetheless, it acts as a great base for powder eyeshadows. I have layered a green eyeshadow on top of the cream eyeshadow in the picture on the right and as you can see it made the color pop.
Oriflame Cream Eyeshadow Olive Green lasts easily for 6-7 hours when applied on its own without creasing. If topped with a powdered eyeshadow it will remain smudge proof for the entire day or until it is removed, making it the perfect base or primer for the eyeshadows.
