This is my all time favorite foundation! It looks good, smells divine, medium-full coverage, dewy finish, moisturizing and it is makes you look so well rested. I have oily, acne prone skin but this foundation only helps me to cover all the imperfections and it feels so good on my skin. My lines disappeared and my skin felt so silky soft and hydrated. I look like I am glowing when i wear this and i always get compliments how beautiful my face looks. But for people who have normal skin it may seem a little heavy. So i recommend you to wear this in the winter/autumn. It was expensive but it's worth it! Foundation will stay on your face all day so i recommend investing in a good foundation instead of buying tons of drugstore foundations.
The best make up ever!!Yes it costs a lot but it covers wrinkles and dark circles fully!!And just a small amount is enough so it lasts and it is worth the money!!The result is magic!!Natural and NO wrinkles!!BUT i think it is appropriate only for normal-dry skins NOT fot oily or acne-prone!!Secondly choose the wright shade,i have fair-medium skin tone and i use 020 beige,it is perfect!!Prefer a tone a little bit lighter than your tone if you cannot find your absolute match!!Try it immediatelly on your face not on hand for better shade selection :)))
Excellent full coverage for my uneven skin tone. The first time I wore this foundation, I described it to a friend as a face-lift in a bottle.The reviews that complain that it goes on cakey/streaky are probably due to not lightly moisterizing immediately before applying this foundation. It glides on smoothly and evenly if you don't let your moisturizer or sunscreen dry out compltely before applying. Absolutely flawless!
Love the coverage for this. I use this in Linen #21 and two pumps covers my face. I have to blot my face once a day though, even with Neutrogena's shine-control primer, but then my skin is a combo type in the winter. I've only used this for a few days now so I'll edit this review if it breaks me out.
This foundation is very almost perfect!
First of all this foundation (I have the lightest shade 010 Ivory) is superb for those fair skinned women who just a bit too fair for NC-15 and most of the lightest shades in popular brands but still slightly warm toned. It's such a relief when you pump this stuff out and it comes out in a true ivory beige colour rather than orange/yellowy like most of them! 10/10 for colour match for my fair skin.
The foundation itself is beautiful. I used to swear by a matte finish but , the dewy luminous finish to Dior Sculpt is so much more flattering! Makes me look healthy. The coverage is medium but can be built up. My skin type is Normal/Dry and since I have been using this foundation I don't get dry patches anymore, it really moisturizes my face and my skin looks better when I take it off. Don't put finishing powder on top of this because it will get rid of the glow! I tried it. The only problem with this is that it is not rub resistant.
The reason why I give this foundation 4/5 not 5/5 is because I have a little problem with it. I am 22 years old and so wasn't looking for a foundation that particularly hid lines, I just want a flawless finish, but it just so happens that the selling point for this foundation is that it's meant to hide lines, 'sculpt' your face and is aimed at more mature skin. Unfortunately I find it actually sits in the lines on my forehead. It also sits in the pores of my face in the cheek area either side of my nose. I have never had an issue with pores, ever. In a dark room like when I go out for the night, it's not an issue and my skin looks gorgeous but in bright light / daytime light the pore issue is not good, makes me look older (ironically). I have tried Benefit Pore Professional underneath (which gets great reviews) and it doesn't stop this problem.
I know the above sounds a bit scathing for a 4/5 review but trust me this foundation is beautiful, and once I have found the perfect product to go underneath and act as barrier so it does not sink into my pores/lines I believe this will be my HG foundation. No foundation I have tried (I have tried many) compares to this one in terms of making the skin look amazing (apart from the little pore/line issue!)
Oh and a little goes a long way. Great stuff.
Most amazing foundation ever. I am done looking for drugstore products and buying 3 drugstore products is the same as this. Done wasting my time and money, because this covers AMAZINGLY and it makes your skin look so natural.
For a long time i believed foundation was only for special occasions because everything made my face look cakey but good in pictures
I can wear this concentrated on places that i need. Covers redness well, and any imperfections you may have. You can even use this under the eyes and it helps under eye circles
I recommend to EVERYONE. Just get a sample and you'll see
Can't believe how much better my skin looks (:
I absolutely love this foundation. I have been using Dior nude and forever before trying this one out and i was positevly surprised. It had a very good coverage and made my skin look defy and healthy. After switching into this foundation i even got comments from my boyfriend saying how good my skin looks like.
This is a nice foundation with a medium to full coverage. It has a slight dewy finish to it, which is nice but with my more combination/oily skin, it made it look oilier, so a powder is a must for me over top of this foundation. Otherwise it looks patchy and not so great, but with a setting powder this is a great foundation! It is thick but nice. I think using a primer underneath makes it better too.
This is my HG foundation and let me tell you I have tried them all!
Firstly, I have acne prone skin that has areas of dry patches (where I often get acne breakouts and where I have to attack with 5 % benzoyl peroxide) and areas tending to be oily (not too much thank goodness!). I also have dark acne scars which show up prominently on my NC 20-25 skin and redness from pimples/acne that have gone away but have left their “mark” behind!! Anyway, one pump of this foundation is enough to cover my whole face and provide full coverage which covers my acne scars and redness perfectly. I have just run out of this after 7 months, so depending on how much your willing to spend, the cost is justifiable and reasonable.
I have also used Diorskin nude and forever liquid foundations, and although both are very good (what do you expect, we are talking about Dior here!), I found that Diorskin sculpt has by far the best coverage (definitely full coverage), followed by nude (but with nude you have to layer to get full coverage…it’s a little cheaper, but in the long run, more expensive as you have to use more to get the result of full coverage!), forever is also amazing, but again, not high coverage enough for people with scars/blemishes wanting to camouflage them. I set this with Diorskin nude sculpting powder foundation in beige praline and I am good to go. It lasts all day, with one touch up with powder at lunch time. I don’t even need a concealer with this, either for under eyes or for blemishes….This is an all-in-one product! Using my skin as a reference, with areas of dry and oiliness, I believe that this can work for both groups as long as you use a finishing powder.
For reference I am NC20-25 and use 020. Great colour match!
NC25, dry and sensitive Asian skin. Using this in 021 Linen.
Pros: Great coverage, moisturizing, nice glow, stays well
Cons: thick, however not a problem if applied with a beautyblender
Note: using a damp beautyblender makes all the difference! It's now my HG foundation, and I've tried a LOT. I've uploaded 2 pics of forever, nude, this and the capture totale, all in 021 linen. This has the best coverage and yet isn't drying for me. I also like the color of this one best, it's illuminating.
