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.
I have high standards when it comes to foundation, and this one is actually pretty good. It is a medium coverage, and I set it with either a mac powder or napoleon camera finish. It has pretty good staying power, although will stay on alot longer with concealer and powder. I suppose it is more of a thicker foundation, but if you apply it with a foundation brush I get a good flawless texture and doesn't look like its just sitting on top of my skin. It is very expensive. I believe I payed $80 for mine, but i use it pretty often and has lasted a long time.
-From far away it looks flawless
-Doesn't crease in lines
-Covered acne well
-My combo skin doesn't get too oily with this
-Extremely (!) pricey
-Somewhat limited color selection
-Feels extremely thick on the face
-Up close, can tell there is foundation. As time goes by, becomes more and more obvious (and gross)
-Covered scabs (from acne) not so well
-Makes flakes/dry spots very obvious
Bottom line, this foundation was not right for me. It is so heavy and did not look like me with better skin. It looked (and felt) like me with a mask on.
This is a medium to full coverage creamy foundation. I would recommend it to those with dry to normal skin, as it may be too moisturizing for oily skin. I apply it with a 187 to give a sheer/medium level coverage and it works wonders covering hyperpigmentation. I have redness and dry skin and this is the only foundation that covers without looking cakey. It can feel heavy, similar to revlons colorstay, but for the flawless finish i can overlook this con. Definately a staple foundation for my very pale skin.
