This is a wonderful foundation, a little on the pricey side but it blends beautifully and sets in a powder-like finish (I use a Real Techniques stippling brush). It has SPF 25 so it's a great foundation for protecting your skin from the sun. I checked the foundation with the flash on my iPhone, and the high SPF does cause flashback, so this is probably not a foundation you'll want to use on a night out.
I'd say that this is light to medium coverage foundation, probably good for normal to combination skin.
If you have dry skin, you may want to moisturise really thoroughly before using this foundation.
It wont cover deep pores or scars or cover moderate/severe acne, so anyone looking for a foundation to do that, please look elsewhere or use a decent primer (I use Bourjois flower perfecting primer to disguise my large pores). It covers mild/moderate reness (like my rosy cheeks) and the occasional spot. You may still require a concealer for any blemishes/marks and it's not great at oil control, but it lasts well when set with a decent powder. I still find I need to blot my T-Zone after a few hours (my T-Zone is REALLY oily but the rest of my face is normal) but the foundation holds up well despite this.
The foundation is a light, liquid formula, and one pump is enough to cover my face. It has a light scent to it, but it wears off fast.
Just so you know it may not be a good idea to use your hand as a palette as it absorbs into the skin really fast, so try to use a lid or something that won't absorb the liquid. I use the top of a pot of moisturising cream, just dip the bristles of my stippling brush in and blend onto my face.
I have it in shade 022 Cameo, which suits my fakely-tanned skin.
This foundation makes my skin really soft and smooth and makes me feel fabulous.
This is definitely an everyday use foundation, but I'll be turning to a lower SPF foundation for any nights out! Tanned neck and ghostly face is not a good look for me, hahaha!
I've uploaded a picture of myself (the one on its side) so you can see how it looks on my face (set with Origins Brighter by Nature in shade 6 and with blusher & bronzer applied for contouring)
I love this foundation! I'm NC20 & wear shade 002. It goes on easiest with just my fingers & I just need 1 pump. I use LM translucent powder on top & it is a great combo. This is medium coverage & doesn't break me out. It makes my skin look flawless ;) I will buy again for sure. I'm dry skin/acne prone for reference....
I Love this foundation , I really really love it , too bad I got a shade that is way to dark and , the only bad thing about this product is that it oxidizes and turns orange after wearing it for a while =) definitely repurchasing this bad boy again
I was in search of a new foundation and I went to our beauty counter here in MalmÃ¶, Sweden and I asked the sales girl to find me something preferably high end and medium coverage. I She tried the Dior forever foundation on my face and it looked absolutely flawless on me, it evened out my complexion and covered my redness and pores and a few scars but not all of them, some I still need to use a concealer for.
Now after having this for over a year I think it's too heavy coverage for day to day on my face, so I rather use something very light coverage. I use this foundation and mix it with a moisturizer and it's just as good for me on a day to day basis. This is a perfect foundation if you're going out or attending a special occasion because you look perfect. This foundation is buildable. It is matte looking and I have the shade 030 Medium beige, and I'm a nc35.
Hope this was helpful ladies!
I must say that this foundation is the best ever! I've tried heaps of different foundations and when I came across to this one I don't want any other. I have oily skin and still this foundation doesn't let me down, I only need a couple of drops and I'm done for the day. X
Can not say enough about this foundation! It is by far my FAVORITE out there! Nothing compares to the coverage, texture, and over all wear of this foundation! I have very oily skin and this is foundation (with a primer of course) wears all day!
Got this at sephora and it is going back. I do not feel that this is a good foundation for dry and aging skin. Face feels dry and tight once it dries down no matter how much moisturizer and hydrating makeup spray I use with it.
I love this foundation! It gives me a beautiful nice matte look.
One bottle lasts my 12 months. Because i need 1 pump to cover my whole face.
And the packaging is so lovely. (L)
I only got this foundation a little while ago but in all honesty it is very good. It's a semi-matte finish which isn't something I usually go for (quite dewy) but it doesn't matter as I have normal skin so I can wear either. It is definitely very lightweight I feel like I'm wearing no foundation an covers any blemishes and redness well. It dries a little quicker than my other foundations which itself has it's own pros and cons but still blends beautifully. Also its pale enough for me which is unusual and i am very happy! I am (nc15 in mac although a tad yellow for me) Not sure if I'd buy it again but glad I got it :D
Went to Sephora to try several foundations. Got samples of Urban Decay Naked &NARS Sheer Glow. The sales girl suggested this one, so I gave it a try. LOVE it! Went back and bought the full size bottle. I'm MAC NC30-35, asian light-med skin tone and shade 21 is a perfect match. Glides on and blends like a dream. Lasting power and really gives a flawless look with great coverage without looking made up.
Has a nice scent to it and the bottle is gorgeous.
