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.
Wow, I am amazed. I've been looking for a foundation for over a year now and tried many many brands. I've been an avid MAC user (NC42) and love the look and feel of this foundation. I was matched to 040 , I'm used to mixing foundations and this one is perfect. Has a bit of pink in it which I like because on yellow undertones you don't want to look even more yellow! YUK!
This foundation is brightening and long lasting, I am going to buy it again-yipes it's a little pricey.
this. is. love.
i never payed much attention to all the hype surrounding this product because frankly it was too expensive for me. I could never envision myself spending almost fifty dollars for a foundation because in the end is any foundation ever worth that amount of money? The answer, I have found, is YES! What makes this foundation so unique?
-The texture. It looks like skin, plain and simple.
-The finish. Satin perfection, not overly dewy and certainly not chalkily matte.
-The packaging. The pump and glass bottle are convenient to use and magnificent to behold.
-The consistency. So easy to blend! A watery-gel like texture that ensures you can use any method of foundation application you prefer.
-In photography. It photographs wonderfully, no ghostly white "glow" surrounding your face.
-The coverage. Not full, not light, a truly medium coverage foundation, great for my skin that needs evening out and a bit of trouble spots covered.
The ONLY con I believe there is to this product is the price. In my mind it is still ridiculous. Honestly though you only need one pump to cover your face so it is ensured that this will quite a while.
Diorskin Nude. GET IT.
For reference I am NC 25-30 and I use shade 31, Sand.
This is the best foundation I have ever used. It is very light-weight and it feels like I am not wearing foundation at all. At the same time, the coverage is excellent and there are plenty of shades to choose from. The beautiful bottle is of course an advantage as well. Only drawback is the price, but I think it's worth it!
I wanted to love this stuff. The powder is fantastic but this foundation is not. It pools in pores and makes them very pronounced. I can see pores I didn't even know I had before. The colour was good for me. I wanted to purchase a bottle but could not because they had to send all of their bottles back due to faulty pumps. I am glad I am not out of pocket for this. Really disappointed.
Another hit out of the ballpark for Dior. I'm a Forever foundation devotee, and after reading these reviews, I purchased Nude. I'm blown away that this lightweight, comfortable formula manages to provide such good coverage. Unlike Forever, this formula is a bit moisturizing and also provides a subtle glow. I have a lot of skin issues but I love the way my skin looks with this foundation. I'll be using Nude during the colder months, and will switch to Forever in the summer when I need less moisture and more staying power. Will definitely repurchase.
