I just love this powder foundation.
I use 010 ivory. Very good coverage but natural look.
See attached photo. I have a lot of acne scars and it seems to cover it pretty well.
I am very picky when it comes to foundations.

If you have acne prone skin and tend to break out easily, this is the best foundation on the market! I have tried TONS of foundations and they either did not give me enough coverage or made me break out. This foundation gives you great, buildable coverage and does NOT clog your pores. I have not had 1 single pimple since using it! And I usually get pimples from EVERYTHING!! Also, it makes your skin very smooth and the extra SPF is a plus. To me, it's worth every penny and I won't ever switch back to the cheaper brands. You get what you pay for.

This is truly one of the best powder foundations out there ........ I have a tendancy to break out here and there and for nice medium coverage, this works fabulous, however, I absolutely hate the color selections (which I am taking away one point) ....... I purchased the lightest, Ivory 010, and it is too dark ....... I just finished a review on BB's new Illuminating Powder Foundation as while Dior is far more superior and excellent, unfortunately, BB's Alabaster works better for my NW skintone ..... it is a shame that a powder compact cannont be produced with the excellent coverage of Dior's Diorskin powder with the coloring of BB's Alabaster.

I LOVE this powder. It just melts into my skin and looks totally natural. It's not great with oil control but i swipe on a loose powder over it that controls oil and my skin looks airbrushed. The packaging is very sturdy and pretty, the pan of makeup never cracks or breaks. It usually lasts me about five months. This has no talc with is great, and no comedogeneic ingredients, though the sunscreen in it could break you out. But i always breakout from sunscreen and this hasn't given me any problems.
Ok here's a little tip from a makeup pro: Wet the sponge, squeeze out all excess water and blot with a towel, then apply makeup by stippling NOT swiping. When you're finished, clean the sponge with soap and water, again get out as much moisture as possible, then spritz with rubbing alcohol. This will ensure a fabulous makeup application and keep your sponge clean and free from bacteria.
If you're prone to breakouts from makeup try this: Pat on Mario Badescu's Special Healing powder on FIRST, then dab you're powder foundation over that. It's done wonders for my clients, the powder helps heal current breakouts, plus it gives you a soft, smooth canvas to work with.

This product is with very tender texture and the color covers well;only the package is with poor quality: the powder box soon detached from the base box after several weeks of my purchase.I could not believe Dior pressed powder has such low quality package.maybe I should have gone to their counter for an exchange?

This powder foundation is by far the best one out there. I know it's a bit pricey, but it's worth every penny. The powder is super fine and goes on smoothly. It doesn't look cakey and covers imperfections. It just makes me look like I have perfect skin. Before I found out about this product, I used Mac's studiofix. And I made a mistake of buying mac again after I finished Dior. Well, I ended up stashing the Mac powder away.

I liked this powder foundation better when it was more simply packaged in a little oblong oval-shaped thing, very nice to slip into your purse. This newer, more complicated compact takes an hour to open, although I suppose the separate compartment for the sponge is more hygenic, which might be a plus for some people. I've been happy for a while using only Clinique's mineral anti-redness powder over sunblock on my pale, yellow-toned skin. However, I'm due to give birth in 7 weeks and I want a compact to take to the hospital and to use for traveling this summer (it's impossible to travel with loose powder or mineral foundations imo). The main reason I chose this is because of the color choices. Most powder foundations are too pink or peach for me. "Cameo" is a perfect match for my skin. Also, this stuff is very fine-milled and glides on smoothly. It never looks powder-y and the coverage is suitably light. It just does what I want it to do -- evens out my skintone a bit and provides spf protection during the day. However, I wish it were less pricey.
Edit: I ended up returning this as I felt it really did feel a tad heavier on my skin at the end of a day than I would prefer, and I felt for the money I could do better. I really did prefer the old formulation.

This powder is nice initially but I'm not convinced it's worth the price. I l do notice that it seems a little cakey around the eye area. I see little sparkles in the powder in the pan. This doesn't keep my T-Zone matte for too long it seems to oxidize quickly so I've been carrying some Revlon Colorstay powder in my purse to touch up the oil throughout the day.

Small in size, and wonderfully portable, this powder foundation glides on beautifully, and blends like a dream. The coverage is perfect, and makes me look like I have perfect skin! The only con is it does cake a bit after a long day.

Just what i need when im in rush.Provides good coverage and it absorbs oil and doesnt make my face look oily for a long period. And it's long lasting too. However, it does magnify my pores a little when i apply it a little too much. Usually i apply it with a sponge for coverage and i use a powder brush to brush off the excess and all i have is natural looking face.

Oh wear do I begin, at $42.00 I was at least hoping for something a little better. I have tried tons of powders and I am still doing the reviews. But this one I would have to say tops the list of horrid powders for oily or combo skin. It looks awesome and perfect, slightly flawless. I was horrified when I looked in the mirror at work about an hour later and it just looked like vasoline had been caked on over my makeup. I could understand a little better if I had an issue with oils but they only show up slightly in the summer. So the whole NATURAL finish that was promised I was very ticked about. I was not even able to blot it off. It came right back FULL SHINE AND GREASE!!!! Beware you can get better results with Cover Girl I am sure and save the checkbook for ANYTHING ELSE!

I have this in Linen, 201 I think. It is too yellow for me and I don't like the compact, but it seems most of Dior's compacts have this stacked appearance. The powder is fine, and gives decent coverage and wears well so I gave it a 3. The product probably won't whiten your skin if you don't use the full whitening regimen and I don't like the fragrance so I won't repurchase.

Dreadful product for many reasons.For start contains oxybenzone and broke me out.If you want low coverage goes on quite well but if you add a second layer to achieve more coverage turns into a dusty talc like powder.Too pricey,the matte finish wont last long after an hour I was dusty and the same time shiny all over,settles into pores and lines too,smells bad and has thick(in the bad way)texture I end up like I had mud on my face.The only good thing that I can think of is the shades,the silky texture on your finger bc on you face.....doesn t go on silky and the fact that over a liquid foundation provides ful coverage

I'm actually kind of on-the-fence as to whether I would buy this product after I run out. I received it as a gift and I'm not so sure if I would be happy with it if I had bought it myself since it is very pricey. According to another reviewer, this product was made for the asian market which I actually really appreciated since it's so hard to find the perfect color for my asian skintone. This is probably the only product that I've ever tried that matches me perfectly so it definitely gets a big plus for that. Unfortunately, coverage isn't so great which kind of defeats the purpose of wearing foundation. I have pretty oily skin but usually when I wear powder foundation, I can go for a few hours without looking shiny. With this powder, I end up looking shiny in less than an hour. I know that they're trying to avoid making you look dry and overly powdery but still, I'd like a foundation that gives more oil control. I've tried applying this powder using both a wet and dry sponge and usually the wet gives me better coverage with other powders but that is not the case for this one. No matter how much I try to put on, you can still see all of the flaws of my skin loud and clear and it actually accentuates the flakes of my dry areas. Hopefully I can find a better product that matches my skintone and then I won't have to buy this one again.

I bought this powder together with Diorsnow Sublissime Ultra Protective Base SPF 50+++. Together they look very flattering on me, But after about 3 hours, the pores on my t-zone are accentuated.
I tried the Diorsnow Ultra Protective Base SPF 50+++ alone with another powder and it was perfect for my skin as a protective base.
But when I tried Diorsnow compact powder alone, it tends to be too glowy on me that it accentuates my pores. I live in a high humid country and I am oily after 2 hours of using this.
However, the Diorsnow Ultra Protective Base SPF 50+++ is my HG.
EDIT: I have tried this powder again and was proven wrong in my initial assessment. This is radiant on the skin, silky and blends with complexion making skin look bare and youthful. The color is also a perfect match for me. My only comment is that it does not control oil so you need another product for that.

This is such a soft and beautiful feeling powder; it does nto cake or accentuate any dry spots on my combo skin BUT the color selection is so limited that you may have to err a bit. It also tends to oxidize but if you can get a color match then it is a lovely powder

I have this in 100 and despite being a PPP this is a smidge too pale on me. I'm not happy with this - it would suit a more normal skintype... it doesn't control oil very well and highlights flakes. It also doesn't address enlarged pores well at all. The packaging is great though - nice white compact with secure closure and hygienic separate compartment for the sponge. I wear this occasionally in the winter time but I will not repurchase. Disappointing.

This review is for Diorsnow Sublissime Whitening Makeup, SPF30 - PA+++, which is the full name of this compact powder foundation. It comes in a white refillable compact, more rectangular and thicker than the regular Diorskin compact foundation. Inside is a separate compartment for the sponge, and a mirror in the powder side.
Colour 021 is ok, a wee bit lighter than my HG colour match (Diorskin 201, Diorskin Extreme Fit 020) and does not oxidize. Coverage is a little more sheer than the regular Diorskin and Diorskin Extreme Fit, which provides the most coverage.
Overall, it's okay. I bought 2 of these and will use them up, but honestly it isn't my favourite. It doesn't meld and look like glowy naked skin like the other Diorskin compacts do.

Great product and last long. Will definitely repurchase it.

It is so cakey on my face after a few minutes. It gives coverage though. I don't like this product.
