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.
This product is waaaay to thick. I wore this for quite a while and do not rate it atall. it is hard to put on with a brush because of the texture and when I put it on with my fingers I feel as though i'm just moving the product around. I'd say this product is better for people that would like very full coverage but I personally wouldnt purchase again.
Love the Dior Sculpt foundation! I have tried other types of foundation from Dior and Chanel (my fav makeup lines) and I keep coming back to sculpt. The pump bottle makes it easy to get out what you need...one pump for me is good for my whole face. So one bottle lasts about 5 months. The coverage is good..it's not sheer but if you put it on sparingly, it doesn't look heavy. But you can build it up a lot if you are going out and it still doesn't look heavy. I have hyperpigmentation on my cheeks and it covers it really well. Makes my skin look really smooth and flawless and it stays well all day. I have normal/drier skin so this may not be the best option for those who have oily skin or who break out easily.
