I am writing this review a bit late but I have tried this foundation and it's actually amazing. Though it is targeted towards a more mature skin, I found that it worked well with my young skin (age 25). Perfect coverage..just slightly heavy but I was okay with that. MAde my skin illuminated and look flawless. I would buy this again for sure...didn't bother my oily skin only made it more smoother :)
I have recommended this to people and they have purchased it...
Dior foundations are pretty great.
Acne ALERT. not for oily skin, slides of a few hours after u put it on. Coverage good, no need for concealer with this. lightest shade was to dark.
Wow - I'm surprised this doesn't have much better reviews! Really surprised. I decided to sample this after determining that Dior Forever had a bit more coverage than I need (after having gone through 5 bottles of it!). Anywho, Sculpt is a truly luxurious-feeling foundation with medium to full coverage, depending on your mode of application. Use fingers for full coverage, but a brush or BeautyBlender for lighter coverage.
My shade is 021 - Linen, which is what it is in every Dior foundation. I'm NC20ish & my other matches are Chant. Future Skin in Camomile; CdP Cream in BF20; Chanel Teint Innocence in Cameo/Claire.
I love this Sculpt foundation just as much as I love the 3 that I just mentioned. Sculpt feels nicely moisturizing, but not overly so (I have very normal skin) and it leaves a slight dewiness which can be enjoyed or cancelled with finishing powder. It lasts all day & does not oxidize at all. Pure, true, lasting coverage that is believable & not too heavy. Gives a lovely, professional look to your skin, if you know what I mean by that. This definitely rates as one of my all-time-favorite foundations. continued >>
1 of my all-time fave foundations - Dior Forever being my other fave. I've never, ever bought a foundation twice in my life, but I'll definitely be purchasing Sculpt & Forever again. I come from the Aussie Sub-Tropics where it's really hot in summer & really mild in winter. So Sculpt is unsuitable in Summer - even at night; however, it's perfect for Autumn/Winter. It gives a wonderful full, powdery coverage & is luxuriously moisutrising at the same time. I love that it gives a blank canvas - no imperfections show through (no redness, no dark circles - I also use the sculpt concealer though, hardly see the pimples/blemishes). I rave about this foundation to my friends & pretty much anyone who'll listen to me blather on about foundations. At $80AU it's really steep in price, but it's definitely worth it!!!!! continued >>
I thought this product was amazing at first, but it made my face look really shiny. I dont usually have oily skin... It does provide quite good coverage and you can build it up. I've bought some YSL bronzer to use to try and mattify over the top but after a while it wears off and my face yet again looks way too shiny. Its also a really weird pinky colour.
I only use it now because I dropped my MAC studio fix (it shattered everywhere!). Once I've bought new studio fix foundation, I will not be using this foundation!
This foundation is not for the oily skinned. I only tried it once and will return.
This being said, I truly think it is a good foundation. I have some very old acne pigmentation and uneven skin tone that I want to cover, and I think the coverage I got with this was light-medium (I prefer medium-full for that airbrushed look). I used it on top of my HG primer from GOSH, and I topped it with MUFE HD silica powder, and 2 hours later, my face was too shiny for my liking, even though it didn't feel oily.
I liked the concept of a "lifting" foundation and indeed this product makes your face look/feel smooth, but I'd rather stick with my same old HG - EL DoubleWear.
Also, the SA convinced me to buy the second lightest shade, even though I thought I needed the lightest - and yep, I should have gotten the lightest, as the one I got was slightly darker than it should have, and you could see a demarcation line. The fragrance is not that noticeable and didn't bother me at all.
I am sure this foundation would suit normal to dry skin the best.
Even though I'm in my early 20s I'm used to buying foundations marketed towards older women. I need a foundation that is moisturizing on top of my regular moisturizer to prevent flaking around my nose, forehead and cheeks. Because of this I can't attest to the lifting properties of this particular foundation, but I can say that it has lasted all day (no absorption) without flaking. Additionally, it makes my skin feel incredibly soft and smooth. Its coverage is medium to full and decent at covering blemishes. Some people might be deterred by its high price (currently $53US) but as other have said...you need very little to fully cover your face. I would suggest applying this with a foundation brush and not fingers because if not spread properly it gets thick.
My only gripe with this foundation (and all Dior foundation lines) is the lack of colors. I bought this in 020 (Light Beige) which is a little dark for my in between NW15-20 skin. For additional reference, MUFE mat+ 020 Ivory is a very good color match for me. Unfortunately if you are extremely pale there probably isn't a shade that will work for you. I'm content with my slightly too dark color because summer is approaching and I will probably be moving to Texas in the near future for law school and sun coloring will be unavoidable :( but if you're lucky enough to match one of the shades Dior makes I would highly recommend this foundation for people with dry skin.
Excellent. I just replaced my previous foundation which is also Dior ( Icon ) with this as the Sculpt creams are excellent effective products themselves so I thought I would get this. Medium coverage , firming and smoothing - what more could a gal want ?
This foundation is a medium coverage foundation which is easily adjustable as the texture is quite thick and almost gel like. it really does fill in the lines very well. It comes with a pump and just a little bit is enough for the face.
It is quite moisturising so I would not recommend it for oily skin types. It also has spf20 PA+++ which is a bonus.
I use colour 020, which actually is a little light for my skin and 030 is too dark for my skin so I mix the two together to get a nice colour.
This is holy, holy, holiest grail. I have the shade "linen" and it is the prefect match for NW20. This has a pump bottle, and please use less than you think you need. This product is quite dense and it is easy to overdo. Should that happen, blot some color away, or the coverage might become quite cakey. The makeup itself is liquid bordering on cream, and it blends and spreads beautifully. My only reservation is that it is hard to clean up, and not easy to wash off your hands. Then, you need to get all the smudgy handprints off your soap dispenser. Cleanse carefully at night. It sets to a velvety, natural, but somewhat moist finish. No shimmer, but a bit dewy. If you are even remotely prone to breakouts and oiliness, RUN. This is not for you.
