This is a very gimmicky product. The color selection is laughable, it doesn't spray on evenly, takes forever to dry, and the price is ridiculous ($60?!). I tried the color closest to my skintone (300 -- I am a MAC NC30 for reference). It was an okay match at first, but then turned orange later.
I actually have a lot to say about the tone and texture of this foundation, but everyone else pretty much seemed to elaborate in it in their own way. I will say that I am very pale (discoloration due to abrasion done by cleansers and skin care products over years) with just about the worst acne scars and continuing acne. I've literally used hundreds of different foundations, and this is the best. The most notable element is that it looks great in just about every stage of lighting. I tried it on at a store with nearly white lighting, and it looked natural. It looks the best in orange-tinted lighting. It can look rather pale, but still natural, while outdoors and in darker areas. I use Cameo #202. I don't know if I'd recommend it to those who are planning to order it before testing it. Sephora is the only store I know of that carries it.
This is perfect for special occasions or interviews. The color match was not exact but it seems not to matter because of the texture of it-- like a powder doesn't match skin color exactly, either. Coverage is excellent, natural looking, and long lasting;it makes my skin look quite beautiful and even, actually. I am in my early 30s with very very pale skin, a few large pores, some fine lines, and very sensitive skin. I use a very good moisturizer first, a fairly greasy one that I use at night, actually, to prevent any cracking (which has never happened). Then I use the foundation over concealer, either as a regular foundation (spray on my hand, then dab on with my fingers) or using the spray for better coverage. I have used it a few times for stressful special events and been really happy with it holding up despite time, perspiration, etc; it's also wonderful for daily use but I don't use it often because of the price. I got a good deal on my purchase, and if I get the same price, I'd buy it again.
This foundation is really great. It evens out my skintone and is really light and fresh looking. My sister was the one who actually bought it, I on the other hand think its way too expensive for such a tiny can. If it was 40 dollars instead of 60 dollars I would definitely buy my own bottle. But i dont think its worth 60 dollars, because it seems like it would run out really quickly. I did however buy the MAC studio mist foundation which is generally the same thing, but I'm sure the Dior one is better...as most of their products are of best quality. But the MAC one was only 34 dollars, so I bought it instead. Too bad. Edit: The MAC Studio Mist Foundation is of no comparison! The light-medium shade is way too orange. Edit: Not sure..but after awhile I found that it makes my skin look a bit grey...weird...
i was so excited about getting this foundation when i was at the diorshow makeup range launch. it seemed like a brilliant product and the best part is, i could spray it nearer to my face on a particular spot and it doubles up as a concealer. (no more having to scout for a concealer that matches my foundation when this can do the job of both!)
however, it is pretty slippery and it makes my oily/combination skin appear too oily, even in the dry winter weather. it's pretty hard to really get to grips with the whole spray application - try getting a balanced spray all over your face with your eyes closed. i ended up spraying it onto a sponge before transferring the foundation onto my face to save time (and avoid the problem of having foundation coated lashes on days when i'm too lazy to apply mascara).
it runs out pretty quickly too. i really wanted to love this product as i really do adore dior, but this really just doesn't cut it and seems pretty gimmicky now. the range of shades is also a severely limited.
If you need serious coverage I don't recommend this. But if you would love to mist on your foundation a little bit at a time for a smooth finish, try it. My first gripe is it's sooo expensive, at $60 for an aerosol can with nothing special about the packaging. It also requires careful application, and doesn't really save any time compared to smoothing on liquid or powder foundation. If you can find a color match it does look lovely, smooth, and flawless. I don't think I would use it everyday, and it's not something you can keep with you in a car or take on a plane, since it's a pressurized can. continued >>
I love this foundation.I love the coverage!The application method is a breeze!I just spray it on and let it dry.I don't pat,press or rub it into the skin.I'm using 200#.This could be classed as a HG along with Prescriptives Flawless Finish foundation.
I bought this for my wedding, and I think it is going to work beautifully, I tried it out a Sephora and wore it all afternoon and it was flawless all day. I don't think i'd wear this everyday, as I don't wear alot of heavy make up but for what I need it for its perfect. I will update this after my wedding.
It is so amazing ,flawless and perfect for a event where photos are taken.I see manypeople are not using it correctly .You should wear a headband and remove jewelery spray and do not rub in. Let it dry and just like any foundation you need to add dimension with concealer and or bronzer .You also should use a rich moisturizer underneath .I think any one who loves to look flawless should use this product.
Some of the reviews here really surprise me. I'm 35 and have tried quite a few foundations in my time. This one is just heavenly as far as I'm concerned. The color is perfect. I use the 200. And its so light I didn't think it would cover anything. But it does! And beautifully. I haven't tried ERA yet, I actually thought this was the stuff Carmindy uses on What Not To Wear. Also to note, I don't spray this all over my face I use it in the lines beside my nose where it gets a little red, on my cheeks and chin and a bit on my forehead. I spray a little in each spot then run it in. I'm not sure I'd even try misting it all over. It seems like I'd waste a lot of product, espeicially considering I only need a little bit in each area. I may have just gotten lucky enough to find a perfect color match for my skin. But in general, I think its a superior product.
