I originally purchased this foundation because I tried so many different types of foundation that would not match my skin tone. I finally found a shade that did, which is 031 of this foundation. I have extremely sensitive skin because I use retina for acne. In the beginning of using this foundation, I did not notice any break outs, but then I gradually saw that this foundation was causing many more breakouts but I thought it was just my skin. Before I new it, I had to go to the dermatologist to fix what this foundation did to my face. I got huge welts on my skin. It was also very dewy, meaning by the end of the day it looked really blotchy and cakey. Also, I never put too much on. Although when first putting it on in the morning, it looks great put here in Texas the humidity it high so I think that's why its looked that way. I will never wear liquid foundation again. I have been through way too many brands, colors that never match, and they are a waste of money. Even though the coverage is not the best, I will just stick with bare minerals and I know that my face will not break out.
Also, I thought that I should point out that this makeup has a LOT of oil in it even though it dries like a matte finish when first putting it on in the morning. I got some of the makeup on my finger and I dried to wash it off with just water and soap but the makeup just smeared on my finger. The process of trying to take the makeup off my face could have also caused my skin to suffer.
This is the best foundation ever. Smooth, coverage is great, feels lightweight, and can't get enough of its' fragrance. Applies best, in my experience, with the beauty blender. Love the packaging, so elegant.
This is a fantastic foundation! It looks natural, is buildable to the coverage you want and really really does stay on all day-even in the tropics. I have just come back from South East Asia and despite having sweat running down my face this makeup just hung in there!
Some people may find it a little drying. If you use a good moisutiser and/or a primer this should not be a problem. I have very fair skin with red undertones and the shae 021 Linen is just perfect. Sadly this shade is incredibly hard to find. I just bought the last one at a department store in Kuala Lumpur and have been unable to get it in Australia.
Lovely foundation even on aging skin.
If you don't need the staying power or it is cold/dry or you are in airconditioning all day I would recommend Dior Capture Totale liquid foundation. It makes my skin look lovely.
The cream to powder versions of both foundations are OK, and quite convenient sometimes but I find the liquid gives amore natural look.
This is my new HG foundation.Easy to apply, covers all the blemishes but most importantly: covers my bags under my eyes WITHOUT using a corrector.
It doesn't make my skin oily unlike Lancome Teint Visionnaire, it's a really wonderful foundation.
Not cakey at all,really smooth and nice.
This foundation was the first liquid one I tried, and I really liked it. It really smooths out the skin, applies very nicely and feels very light. It also smells really nice!
However, I have skin that gets oily very fast during mid-day and so I don't like that this foundation has a dewy finish. The coverage is also medium which works for mild blemishes and discolouring, but I usually prefer a stronger coverage for more severe acne.
That being said, combine this foundation with a good concealer and pressed powder and it becomes a HG!
I've tried a lot of other liquid foundations (MUFE Matt Velvet, MUFE HD) and keep coming back to this one. It is incredibly pricey so I'm always on the lookout for a dupe, but I haven't been able to find any other products to match it.
I don't mind spending the money if the product is right.
This is worth the money and deserves more hype. Packaging is frosted glass. Has the look and feel of 'you've spent some money'. Nothing cheap-looking here.
Background: I am super super oily - (I don't mind being super oily, that's why I don't have wrinkles:)
I've worn this foundation for the last two summers running and enjoying the heck out of it. The texture is thin which is nice in the desert, for my skin type. I don't want to pile on a heavy creamy foundation, that I can't wait to get home and scrape off my face. Especially in the summer.
Use a moist sponge for lighter coverage or dry flat top brush for heavier coverage.
Yes, this dried fast. I don't get why others complain when a product dries quickly - I don't have time for this to settle and that to dry and all the rest. I expect my foundation to go on and DRY. LOL. I have things to do.
As the day goes on, this does not slip away from my oily T and the oil control midday powder dab down is optional, which for me, that's freaking amazing. Seriously.
This does not disappoint. Can be used fuller coverage for glam or lighter application for everyday errands. Love. Love.
For every foundation I use: For primer I use milk of mag for oil control, then on top, monistat powder-gel for a smooth finish.
I am really, really fond of this foundation. Firstly, lovely quality packaging as always with Dior, nice glass bottle with blue lid. Obviously, what really matters is the product and it doesn't disappoint. A little goes a long way and it glides on nicely. Id describe it as medium coverage. And it stays on. And on, and on. Probably the best lasting power of any foundation I have ever tried, it is still there and feeling comfortable 10 hours after application, no mean feat on my oily skin. The finish is lovely, blurring imperfections and making the skin look divine. I will be repurchasing.
Tentative first review, i've only used this stuff for a couple days, I will update this after a month!
-this stuff wears REALLY WELL. And you would think that if its long wearing it would go on masky, but NOPE it manages to keep you to a light matte/satin finish and wear well! It also makes any blush/bronzer I put on last way longer. I must add however that it does not keep the oiliness at bay, i get oily as usual. However it does not break down with the oil. Not transfer resistant on my face either
-Beautiful bottle, excellent pump
-scent isnt bothersome
-bottle may be a pain to travel with
So far I really like this! Gorgeous foundation definitely grab a sample and give it a try!
I've been using this product all winter, I was a little afraid it would be too much for summer. But it seems like it keeps the moisture in without making me too oily and I haven't broken out much more then usual (which isn't much, like 1 or 2 when I'm stressed or pms'ing) I use less of course. I went from Alaska (very dry) to South Carolina (very humid) and I'm still using it without problems. So far. I like this foundation and the packaging is very nice and clean. I'll keep buying it. I wish Dior would bring back the summer fluid though.
This Dior Forever Extreme wear foundation is fantastic. It has a beautiful matte and natural looking finish and lasts a long time. It doesn't feel heavy like you're wearing a mask but manages to completely even out skin tone and give my face a beautiful, polished look. This one is a keeper. Highly recommended.
