Review of Christian Dior Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup (new - 2011 version) by ArizonaAngel
I love long wearing products - I am a divorced mom on the go and touching up my make up constantly is a distraction I don't want. So I try and go for foundations (and more) that deliver. This one definitely does! I ordered this in my Sephora F&F order in the color Medium Beige 030. I have neutral to cool undertones and am a MAC NW30 for reference. I have the older version of the powder in the same color, and while it leans JUST SLIGHTLY warm it matches so well. Same goes for the liquid. I find that a lot of "cool toned" foundations show up very orangey on my skin, so I know I lean towards neutral.
The foundation is more watery than I am used to. I usually use Clarins Everlasting and Estee Lauder Double Wear. Those two have nearly full coverage while this is just shy of it. It blends better than both of those, leaving me ample time to blend it correctly before it sets. It isn't heavy at all or masky (DW can feel heavy when applying). The fluid itself reminds me of MAC Face and Body, but not the coverage obviously. This has a perfumed scent that is hard to pinpoint ~ kind of fruity. Not obnoxious to me at all but if you are sensitive to that sort of thing just be aware.
The finish is medium plus - not full, as I still need a bit of concealer for my few melasma spots (unlike the other two mentioned above), but not a lot. I don't like to set it with powder as it has such a stunning dewy, natural finish. It feels so lightweight on - like I am literally wearing no foundation whatsoever. And his is hydrating! Most long wearing foundations start feeling tight within 4-6 hours, this one does not. It still felt I wasn't wearing any make up. I had to blot at the the 6 hour mark but that is the norm.
All in all I will buy this one again. I love my full-coverage long wearing ones...but this one is different. It hydrates, it covers, it stays. Well done!
