Review of Christian Dior DiorSkin Compact Makeup by sherina614
I think I may have found my HG powder foundation!!! This powder practically liquifies on your skin because it is so finely milled. The coverage is buildable and never looks chalky and never collects in my pores (which mineral makeup powders do). I need heavy coverage due to broken capilaries on my cheeks, nose and chin and general redness due to sun damage (I'm in my 40's) ... So I use a liquid foundation (still searching for my HG there) underneath, but with a layer of DiorSkin on top I feel and look like I have no foundation on and the lasting power is super! I have combo skin with slightly oily t-zone and sometimes need to touch up that area mid-day, but DiorSkin does the job there too. I have a light/medium complextion and use shade 201 (Linen) which I am very happy with. I bought the refill version on eBay for $23 including shipping but now that I know I love it, I want the whole compact for the benefit of the mirror (and for how good it feels to open a Dior compact in public - LOL)! Highly recommended powder foundation and a must try for every makeup diva! P.S. I use Pure Luxe Eraser/Corrector in "What Red" underneath my initial layer of liquid foundation, which does seem to help tone down the redness and improve the application and lasting power of both my liquid foundation and DiorSkin powder. On top of all, I use Pure Luxe "You Glow Girl", which is okay but not my HG loose powder. 10/29/06 UPDATE: Still my HG powder foundation, but found that #302 (rosey beige) is an even better color for me! Want to try #300 too (medium beige), so I guess I'll have to go to the Dior counter at Nordies to make my final determination.
