I've been playing around with this foundation recently, so I've only used it a couple times. Great coverage, it evens out my skin tone nicely BUT it loves to cling to and enhance the dry patches on my face *the cold dry winter weather where I am is causing some crazy havoc on my skin*. As well towards the end of the day I also noticed that it enhances lines I never knew I had! Not good! It doesn't appear to irritate my skin other wise, it doesn't take much to irritate and cause breakouts on me, and so far no issues with that, but I've only used it a couple times. I may have better luck in the summer time, as my face tends to get more oilier compared to dry. If you have more dry skin, especially in the winter, I'd say keep looking or at least use a REALLY good moisturizer before hand, but alas the hunt continues for me!
I was soo excited when I got this foundation! I ordered it online so when I got it in the mail I was super excited! :D the packaging is soo cute and just feels durable. I love that it has a pump. It is pretty full coverage. I have acne scarring so I definitely need a full coverage foundation. this foundations a little too thick and drying for my skin so I add moisturizer to it before I put it on my face (I also moisturize and prime before I put on foundation). adding moisturizer changes the color a little but it also seems to take away some of the coverage. as I already said, this foundation is thick and isn't always the best on dry skin or dry areas on the face. like if I start to get a pimple, I apply salicylic acid to it, and it dries the area out a bit. the foundation doesn't look good over that dry skin/area. i apply the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation with my hands and occasionally with a brush. but Kat Von D recommends applying it with a brush. this foundation oxidizes on my skin and turns into a darker more orange color. I find if I touch my face throughout the day it completely removes the product. and it is not very matte. well it doesn't stay matte all day. I would by this product again because of the coverage and packaging. but I'm going to look for a better foundation. -another thing I bought this foundation in August and it's now December and I have plenty of foundation left. I wear it pretty much everyday. I use a pump or half a pump a day. so it is worth the money for how much product you get!
Love this foundation, I have acne issues and this foundation covered then perfectly.
I really love this foundation. After reading all the reviews and watching reviews on youtube i decided to purchase this foundation in Medium 54. I tan regularly and for reference my shade in Dior is 30 or 31. I was pretty nervous that this colour wouldn't suit me because I couldn't try it on anywhere in Australia so I had to base my choice off the reviews, which is also why I am writing this review. For reference you can buy this in Aus off a website called tarazz which is somehow linked with Sephora and sends items from US (takes about 14-20 days to arrive). It was about $58 AUD which I thought wasn't too bad. You get a lot of use out of this foundation as you only need one tiny pump and it basically covers the entire face. I do use a powder over the top but only because I don't like any oil whatsoever showing. Despite what some people say it doesn't feel that heavy once it is on. It has a little bit of a weird smell to it but it goes away once its on. I also have pretty large pores but this foundation gives my skin a bit of an airbrushed look (I don't have any pimples or anything though). I have some pigmentation from freckles and uneven skin tone that already gets covered by spray tanning but this foundation hides all of that which is pretty cool.
Overall this is an awesome foundation, I definitely recommend it. As for other colour options, I can't really say but the Med 54 suits me really well. I would say once I'm tanned I have a similar skin colour to a tanned paris hilton/ Lauren conrad tanned etc. Hope this helps!
I bought this awhile ago to wear on my birthday. All my pics from that night show me with a ghost face. Really white and glowing! Still wanted to make it work so I wear it in the day time. No biggie to me. I have to use a light hand with this. If I don't literally BUFF it INTO my skin it will look cakey and make my pores look huge. Once I use it like that, it doesnt look like I'm wearing too much makeup but then it doesn't have the full coverage that I wanted. So wanted to love this. I think someone who has smooth skin with little to no imperfections would love this.
I love this foundation. FULL coverage. It really stays on all day. You really dont even need to use a primer with it. On the downside, it is a little thick, but once it is blended in, it looks 100% airbrushed.
I liked the full coverage but after an hour or so it's starts coming off around eyes and small creases show ... Used stippling brush and fingers just wasn't for me. Wouldn't recommend.
I did a lot of research on this product, read a lot of reviews, watched a lot of youtube tutorials for this product, like literally months of research. I wanted to make sure I really really wanted this. I got the shade M57, it looked ok when I put it on when I was indoors, but when I looked at myself in the mirror in the car, I was ORANGE. I even bought different brushes to apply this foundation with. My problem area is my chin/jawline & I felt like this brought out those imperfections :( it got rid of the discoloration, but felt it brought out the uneven texture of my skin.. if that makes sense.
I also think I'm using it incorrectly! I see a lot of girls using only one pump (a little does go a long way) but found myself using more :(
I really REALLY wanted to like this ;(
I love this foundation...im a mac nc42-43...so..in this im medium 62...so its perfect for me..also i use MAC matchmaster foundation in 6.0..which is also my perfect color....I got this foundation because its matte finish and it really will be good when i want full coverage and when the weather is very hot...it stays on me all day...i see lots of other reviews saying its heavy...its full coverage and a very little is needed for each section on face using a t -zone dot method...if u apply too much over dry skin , yes..u will have a messy look...my trick i use is : a good face moist. in morning...(ANOTHER..THING..: I ONLY wash my face at night and IN the morning DONT wash your face with a cleanser because you strip the natural oils from your skin...)..I JUST use a warm washcloth to wipe eyes..etc. when waking up..so with keeping oils and adding your primer..(I USE UD PRIMER /brightning)...THEN put this foundation on lightly with the proper brush : UD OPTICAL BLURRING or Sigma flat face brush for WET foundaton..or any other flat blending brush going in circle motions......then judge this foundation....this is great for me, no caking, no off color, ...because i also apply it correctly. love this! hope my tips help:)
