I love this. Only 2 issues: I am constantly spraying this on my clothes and hair (my bad aim, I suppose), and I need to mix two shades to get the right one for me. But really, I love it. Such a light but flawless finish.

I have used a couple of Dior foundation, the Dior star, nude air. I love them both.
the colour matches me so much.
Few months ago i had bought this foundation. I tried a couple of times. didn't write a review about it. Then I had used this again today, I just forgot how good it is looking on the skin.

First how I apply it. I spray on a brush, then put it on, applying with a small part on my face. Pores are so much small. The face look airbrushed.

And it last all day, without getting really really oily. i am oily on the T-zone. i had been wearing this for at least 6-7 hours then i just started to get a little shinny on my nose. very impressive.

The price tag is not the best for sure. But then it is Dior. and it has a lot of product in there.
I guess I just need to use it more often. before it expired.

I believe this foundation is good for oily to combo oily skin types. just from my opinion.

I would buy this again. Just hopefully they won't discontinued this product

Just bought this foundation last week and I have wore it all day for the last 3 days.

It is a good foundation with some cons, at least for me. First off all I feel like I get the nicest finish when I actually apply it as it's meant to be applied, which is by spraying onto the face. I hold the can away almost an arms length away from my face and then aim it directly at the middle of my face, then when I start spraying I move it just a tiny bit from side to side. I find that by focusing on the middle of my face I get the coverage where it's most needed and since I'm holding the can so far away from my face there is still a light mist that falls onto the sides of my face too. Best of all by not waving the can all over the place there is no mess at all. Not even in my hair. This application usually gives me perfect coverage, at least for my taste, but if I want some extra I then just mist my face brush and put the additional product where needed. The finish is natural and yet beautiful.

The color I chose was 301 which was a very close match to my natural color, I just wish it was little more golden rather than peachy, however once I got it on it didn't look unnatural so a pretty color match overall.

It lasted all day and night so bonus points for that. The first day I wore it, I applied it later in the morning, stayed out all day and evening and when I got home I was so tired that I sinfully went to bed without washing it off. Then next morning I still had some pretty good coverage going on so I have to say the product gives good long lasting coverage.

Now for my complaints. It's so drying. It feels somewhat drying as soon as I put it on and then that feeling just seems to get worse as the day wears on. I wore it all day yesterday and when I got home and looked in the mirror the skin around my eyes was so dehydrated that the fine lines and bags that are usually only somewhat noticeable were very noticeable. The skin under my eyes was even a little bit puckered, which kind of defeats the long lasting ability of this foundation because who wants to look like they are aging by years in a single day..LOL. However it is winter and the air is very cold and dry where I live right now, so this might be turn out to be my favourite foundation in the summer when I'm fighting humidity and perspiration.

My second complaint and this isn't really a complaint for myself but just something I want to let others know in case full coverage is important to them. I would say this foundation is a light to medium coverage which is great for me because I'm at an age where less is more. I don't like the look of full coverage on myself because it looks unnatural and harsh on me. I like when my natural skin shows through so for me the coverage of this foundation is fine but if someone wants total and complete coverage I don't think this foundation is right for that. If you tried to build it up to full coverage I don't think it would look natural or flattering so something to keep in mind.

So overall I like it, but it's not holy grail quality for me. I won't be wearing it everyday as it's just too drying at this time of the year and I'm not 100% sure I will repurchase. I'll have to keep trying it before I make up my mind.

UPDATE: okay I've been using this foundation for almost 3 weeks now and I'm sad to say that it has become my favorite foundation. I say sad because it's so expensive that I didn't want to like it. I had put off buying it forever and when I finally broke down and got it my plan was to buy it, hate it, and then be done with it..LOL, but there is just no denying the beautiful natural finish this creates. Most amazing is how it evens out my skin tone, covers my dark spots and still looks like natural skin. AMAZING. I have learned that I have to use lots of moisturizer before applying to counter the dryness problems I was having and that if I want to add a little more after I'm done spraying this on it is best to use a beauty blender and not a brush. I also try not to get too much under my eyes and use a creamy concealer there instead. I will definitely repurchase this foundation.

I'm really impressed by this foundation! I have the shade 201 which is a good match for my Nc20ish skin. It is long lasting and stays put. The finish is flawless. It feels really lightweight in the skin but you get a lot of coverage. I have hyper pigmentation on my cheeks and an extra layer of this foundation was able to cover it without any concealer. I have combination skin and I was able to wear this foundation without primer underneath which is almost unheard of for me. It didn't slide off my oily t zone but I would recommend a little powder in the areas you get oily. The one and the one and only hang up I had was that this foundation didn't sit well over the dry parts of my face. It clung and looked powdery. So if you have really dry skin maybe this isn't the best foundation for you.

Skin like finish! Sheer looking but covers. I spray a tiny bit on a flat Kabuki and buff. I use Mac concealer on bad spots and some NARs bronzer. It's beautiful. I wish it was cheaper But I love!

This is the only foundation that I've been using since years. I don't feel the need to switch to any other foundation. The texture is very light. Very minimal amount of this foundation is needed. For me I don't really think it has anything negative that i could write about. I will definitely repurchase it.

I have the shade 100 which is supposed to be the palest neutral shade on offer. It has a beautiful coverage and finish. However, the colour is an unattractive pinkish orange shade that is similar to the colour of oxidising drugstore foundations on teenage girls. I was really disappointed given the price and the hype.

I would not buy again.

I am on still on fence about this product. It's been around for years and I finally decided to try it after seeing a review on Profuct guru Wayne Goss YouTube https://m.



channel. While it can provide flawless looking coverage for some, it is not for people with dry skin. If your skin in not properly hydrated it will give you dry patches where it doesn't look so smooth. I've also found that you have to really experiment with what concealers, blushes, and highlighters you use with this product. Some products do not blend well and again, leave dry patches on the skin. I don't necessarily agree with many of the other reviews that you must apply with a brush. I found that spraying a little on the face then immediately blending works well too. That being said, if you decide to spray directly on the face I would cover your hair and do your eye makeup afterward. The application isn't easily controlled. Also, be prepared to waste a lot of product trying to get this one right. It's one of those products where when it's applied perfectly it's GREAT but good luck getting it down to the exact science. By the time I figured it out I probably wasted half a can. Is $60+ worth a can of trial and error. Like I said, I'm still on the fence.

I am a huge fan of makeup and have tried so many foundations I can't even count. I have tried tons of different things and I have liked some, but haven't found one that I want to buy again so I will keep trying new ones...until now. This foundation is amazing! It covers so beautifully but in a very subtle way. It doesn't look cakey ever. I spray this foundation a little bit on different spots on my face and use my beauty blender to spread it out and push it in. This is amazing! Gives great coverage but a flawless look. I will buy this all the time.

Overall I think that this is a very over rated product. I actually like the dior primer, but the foundation is just blah. I picked up shade 200, matched prettt good. I preferred applying it directly onto my flat top brush and stippling it just as beauty guru Tati on youtube does. For more coverage you can spray it directly onto your face, but it will go up your nose and make you sneeze like crazy. I have a lot to cover, acne scars and discoloration so I really had to use quite a lot of product for a medium coverage only. This foundation doesn't dry too fast which makes building up the coverage a little tricky. I'm not a fan of its consistency either. It is just to "slippery" and using a flap top brush distributes the foundation un evenly, but using a beauty blender soaks up most of the product giving an almost non existent application. The struggle was real haha. I always had to use another foundation or a good concealer with this foundation because 5he coverage wasn't cutting it for me. I have oily skin and the staying power is decent if you set it well. I usually liked to use my mac nc 20 studio fix with this for added longevity and coverage. In its own the foundation will rub off so setting it is a must. The girls at sephora were baffled when I returned it. They loved it so much, and I like the girls at seohora, but I was like no. I think as consumers we want to like things because of their popularity and fame amongst the beauty community and trust me that's how I felt when I she'd the $62 plus tax on this bad boy. I wanted to live it and believe that I was going to look flawless. I think this might be good for skin that doesn't have dark spots or redness. Didn't work for me, I might try the sephora one just for the heck of it, bease it's supposed to be a dupe according to the ladies at sephora.
