I have loved many of Dior's foundation so I had high hopes for this one too, but I was very disappointed. It didn't feel like foundation at all. I felt as if I was trying to cover my face with chewing gum. It was impossible to get even, and I ended up with a far heavier layer than I like. It did'nt look natural at all. It clumped, made the pores look bigger and didn't cover well. Perhaps one of the worst foundations I've ever tried.
Now here's a lovely foundation. I'm pale as a sheet (around NC10) so the lightest shade is a tad too dark for me, but I apply it sparingly in the T-zone and on my cheeks and then set it with a really fair, semi-matte mineral foundation. This creates the most flawless base I've ever worn, like porcelain! It stays put all night too, without touch ups.
I can imagine people with oilier skin having a problem with the staying power because of the dewiness, but it's perfect for me who feel like a desert. Haha. My skin often looks a bit dull, but it looks a lot healthier when I'm wearing this. The scent is gorgeous too, a perfume-y luxurious smell that disappears right after application. Feels fancy!
Then of course - it's quite expensive. But I guess you get what you pay for.
This foundation is really nice and feels so soft and smooth on my skin, it blends really well and gives medium-full coverage (it's build-able). It makes my skin look great, and it looks really natural if I only use a little. This is far too expensive for me so I probably won't be repurchasing, but I'd be more than happy to have someone gift this to me. It also matches well with the dior sculpt concealer with the nice wand applicator I like.
Great foundation esp for dry skin but not enough colour selection.
This is my new favorite foundation. I love the consistency and it does not take much foundation to cover major problem areas on your face. I have areas that tend to get red and inevitably by the end of the day my old foundation would wear off and my redness would show through. Not the case here. It is thick and creamy but goes on so smooth and does not feel like you are wearing a heavy amount of makeup. I would recommend any of the dior foundations as I have tried three of them and they have all been worth every penny.
I have to admit the first day I wore this I thought I didn't like it, mainly because the color- linen has a tiny amount of grayish tone in it which doesn't suit me. But I have been wearing this for about a week and when I catch my skin in a mirror, I glow in an unexplainable way. I like the way it moisturizes and I think this will be good for winter months. It isn't a makeup for oily skin, it was really meant for dry skin. this covers even better the shu's face architect cream !
This is a terrible, terrible, terrible foundation!!! The only thing I liked was the pump...
It goes away
Show patches of dry skin
Go into fine lines
Bad color selection
I don't know why, but this thing showed all my pores more visible! :S
Definitly DON'T BUY IT!!!!!
definitely not to be used if you got oily skin,otherwise its a good foundation.
Ive tried roughly 5 dior foundations in the past, hoping that paying for a big brand name pays off, but so far ive found there foundations ridiculous, the sales reps not listening, just wanting to muscle you into a sale and the formulas are terrible. And this trend continues into this foundation, i honestly dont know why i keep going back, all the packing for diors foundations are beautiful, the pump is a good addition that some brands ignore, like clinique, but the foundation itself was a nightmare, it sunk into everypore, defined dry skin patches and started to slide off within a few hours, not to mention, the colour choice picked for me was way too dark.
I hated this so much.
After telling the sale rep. I had combination skin she chose Sculpt. I had a very difficult time blending the foundation. It filled my pores, and looked like I had pits in my face. I've never had this happen before. I finally had to use a makeup sponge which took some of it off my face. I think it made my face look oily, and didn't last very long that day. I paid $65 and it's going back.
