Current HG foundation status :) I researched for awhile in finding a foundation that will meet my current skin condition. This has surpassed my expectations so far. It's winter and my skin is on the dry side and in need of a more hydrating foundation. I have a love/hate relationship with the idea of foundation. I hate wearing it and the feel of most of them. I however, do like to look pretty and polished and I find TM's don't provide me with that. I generally gravitate toward mineral mu or mu geared for sensitive skin. I want a foundation to provide healthy benefits to my skin and not just sit there and clog pores. I also want a airbrushed look and a light texture to the foundation providing a light/medium coverage. With that said, I found Diorskin nude fresh glow hydratiing foundation. I have a tan going on now so I purchased the 030 (medium beige) shade and it works well with my current skin color-maybe a tad bit too yellow but not noticable to the non-discriminating eye-lol. When my tan fades, I may have to switch to 022 (cameo). This feels like nothing on my skin, it is very refreshing!
Wow this is a great foundation.. been mineral makeup user for couple of years but now i love this foundation..definitely high quality. It feels very light and natural on your face, but gives good coverage but doesnt' look heavy. If you are looking for a natural looking, yet good coverage foundation that feels good on your face, this is worth a try.. you will love it..I dont' think i've ever raved about a foundation cuz i never liked any of them until now.
I think I may have found my new favorite foundation! I have an oily t-zone, but overall pretty good skin with a few blemishes here and there. I tried this in a duty-free giftshop in the airport, of all places. I got a sample from Sephora and wore it today- and I liked what I'm seeing! The lightest color, Ivory 010, is a perfect match for my pale, cool-toned skin. The coverage is great, more than my usual Korres Ginger & Vitamins foundation, which had a tinted-moisturizer consistency. It looks polished, is buildable, and has a beautiful not-too-matte but still matte enough finish (not sure if that makes sense- I just mean it looks natural and not chalky). I probably would not buy this if I didn't have a Macy's giftcard, because the price is ridiculous, especially for a college student. But the packaging is good, love having a hygienic pump. Overall, I am very excited about this wonderful foundation find!
ETA: I still love this. need to get a color one shade down for summer, but I can't wait to repurchase!
On me this looks and feels like skin, I apply this with my Sephora #55 Air Brush and I get a flawless, flawless finish. I compare this to MUFE HD foundation and the finish is just not the same. The price is riDONkulous, but my skin looks perfect so for me it's worth it.
I am dying to find a nice liquid mineral foundation and really wanted to like this stuff, but sadly, I don't. I have medium-toned Asian skin but everything was too pink or too yellow on me. The SA gave me a sample anyway and I took it home, thinking that I could probably live with the pinker one. I started noticing small zits on my face (which I rarely get) and thought one of the moisturizers I had just started using was causing it, but I cut those 2 out and still kept breaking out and realized it was this! I have NEVER broken out this bad with any product. I stopped using this and my skin calmed down.
Very disappointed because the finish and coverage are good despite the lack of a good shade match.
I have finally bought this after reading reviews on MUA. I am an avid fan of Everyday Minerals but for going out, i think my semi-matte isnt really enough so have decided to give Diorskin Nude a try. The sales assistant recommended 022 Cameo for my skin (on EM, i am Light medium / Fairly Light). I think the liquid foundation gives a really good coverage but at the same time gives a nude look and makes you look as if you have a good skin naturally! It comes in a pump bottle and i've also bought the CD foundation brush and when applying to the skin, it feels like watery-gel texture and dries pretty quick so you need to blend it well and not wait too long to do so. I wore it for about 10 hours and by the time i come home, it still hasnt really cracked or anything. The SA also advised that it has so much mineral and vitamin in it that you can sleep with it and also improves the texture of your skin as you continue to use it (i don't know how true that is yet but would defo not sleep with it!) Am planning to use it on night out or special occasion or whenever my skin feels as if it needed more than just powder foundation. Overall, happy with the purchase!
Tried this as a sample first, and I'm glad I found this stuff! I have oily skin that seems to get worse when I apply foundation. With this one however, my skin stays nice even though it's a hydrating formula. I'm starting to think that oily skin gets worse with mattifying foundations because it dries up your skin and then your skin overcompensates by producing more oils. But I digress. This foundation makes me look like I have perfect skin. I apply it with my MAC skunk brush and it looks great. Love that it has a pump too. I pump it into my palm, swirl my brush in it, and then apply. I will be wearing this all the time now, because powder foundation just doesn't do it for me anymore. I like looking more polished and I also find I need to use less make-up elsewhere to get the same effect.
UPDATE: I have tried applying this with my fingers, a foundation brush, a skunk brush and a sponge, and I have found that the sponge application gives me the best results by far.
EDIT 030 is a perfect match to my skin tone!
I have this in both the original and the reformulated/repackaged version in 021 Linen. Sephora told me that Dior recently exchanged all the old DiorSkin Nude foundations for an improved version. It's definitely better now! Personally, I think that they changed the actual formula to be thinner and more uniform in texture. Before the foundation was still good but there were globs of mineral makeup that stuck together to clog the pump. I don't notice an actual difference in packaging. Now it is more like the Forever foundation in texture.
This foundation is optimal for normal, combination and oily skins. I consider this medium coverage. I have tried all the new low to highest end matte foundations (literally....), and this is one of the best at keeping the skin matte because the formula isn't overflowing with silicones. There is a hint of sparkle in the formula, but don't let that deter you because it won't contribute to oil production. I know this is marketed as a hydrating foundation, but please try this or get a sample made for you at Sephora if you are oily skinned.
If you are combination-oily and want a Dior foundation, you have to try this and Forever. If you want to really go over the top for combination skin, you can always wear Hydraction tinted moisturizer or Capture totale foundation around the eyes if you have dryness there.
The formula of DiorSkin Nude is really neutral in that it doesn't absorb or create oil, making it versatile for a lot of skin types.
By the way, the color 021 Linen is a superior color for light to barely medium skins with a neutral yellow golden undertone that is spectacular for counteracting redness.
I sampled this and Teint Idole for about a month, and this won hands down. I am in my late 20's and have dehydrated skin. This gives a very natural look and evens out my skin tone. I have pink undertones and a little bit of redness that bugs me, and I actually went with 023 (peach) instead of 022. The peach covered up the redness, but was subtle enough that it doesn't look out of place on me.
My skin type: Oily on cheeks, less oily on t-zone but still oily
Foundation - very liquid, very lightweight, very nude - great for people with dull skin without blemishes as it doesnt cover blemishes at all.
ok ive tried this foundation on 3 times and everytime I get very different results. My desired result is the totally no makeup look.
1st time - using a foundation brush - it becomes very thick looking and layered even though its only one layer and I got oily only after an hour or so.
2nd time - using a dior pore refining gel as a primer to help with the oil. applied with fingers. Well its ok it definately feels comfortable but it looks make-upy.
3rd time - apply on clean skin with fingers - PERFECT! it didnt get oily, it made my pores look smaller, my face looks luminous. I love it. However we have to note that if youre gonna apply on clean skin, you have to make sure you have no dry bits at all otherwise this foundation is gonna make the flaking look more obvious. Also when you use your fingers to blend you gotta be fast as it drys very easily. Overall it got 4 lippies because the price is a little steep. its $65 SGD.
