Just to help you all out, I have combination skin which is acne prone. I do have a few minor spots/zits, mild hyper pigmentation, enlarged pores and minor scarring.
I have to say, I am distraught with this. I have been looking for an airbrush finish for a long time and had built my hopes up that this could be what i was looking for.
Application: messy but I can get over this by spraying it in the middle of my face and blending out the edges with a brush/sponge.
Coverage: not great. With two sprays, I could still see some redness. I'd describe it as light coverage but build-able.
Finish: powdery but natural. This is the only redeeming thing about this. It is light on the skin.
Longevity: long lasting but it did make me a little shiny(less than an average foundation)
Additional: it didn't break me out which is remarkable.
WARNING: I tested this on my hand with flash photography and I did get flashback due to the Titanium Dioxide(used in sunscreen). Flashback is the white cast you see on people's faces when a flash is used during photography, the ghost face.
This is ok if you want to try a novelty product and pay a premium for the privilege or need light coverage. I wouldn't use this for weddings due to the flashback and I wouldn't use it during the day as Dior aren't confident enough to state it contains adequate SPF on the can, despite containing Titanium Dioxide.

This is really a beautiful foundation. Goes on smooth and silky and dries to a somewhat powdery finish so no setting powder is needed. Very natural and light weight. The color was also a great match for my skin. Why not a higher rating?
1) While it's a great foundation, it wasn't any better than my Lancome Teint Miracle which is
$42.50 vs Dior's crazy price of $62. For days I kept trying to like this foundation more,
especially w/all the rave reviews but just didn't love it.
2) I don't like the spray can since the best way to apply this foundation is with a flat head
brush so what is the point of the the messy can?
3) Couldn't tell if I was running out
The foundation looked fabulous on my sister's normal skin but on my combo skin it was just "pretty nice". For $62 I'm looking for the wow factor.

if you can find a shade that matches you, this is worth it for special occasions. really gives fantastic coverage and keeps you matte (for us oily skinned girls) longer than any other product i have tried. at $62.00 a canister it aint cheap but its totally worth it for special nights. i wore it to my brothers wedding and it was wonderful. at first spray, you are like WTH?! but as it dries to a matte powdery finish you breathe a sigh of relief. i spray directly onto my airbrush brush, stipple on and then circular motions to blend. there is a fragrance but i dont mind it at all. i am NC42 and i have tried 300 medium beige (way too light/gave me ghostface in pictures) and 400 honey (too dark/red undertones). wish they would come out with more shades! all the shades in between are either too light or too red, so weird. who has a red undertone?! 3 stars because i just cant find a good shade and its expensiveeee for such a little can. i want to get the sephora spray in medium but it has been sold out for over a month now!

The product in and of itself is fantastic. The coverage and feel is amazing, and by far is the best foundation I've ever used. I wish they hadn't reformulated it, because I am allergic to something in the new formula, and broke out in eczema on my chin from which I am still recovering. :/ The scent is stronger, too. I had to return it, and I'm extremely disappointed.
If you can get this product to work for you, it's worth the price. If you apply it to a flat head brush and then stipple it over your face you will get much more than one months use out of it. I bought one bottle (of the old formula/blue lid) back in April, and only now in November am I out of foundation, and I was wearing it every day.

This is my perfect foundation. I am able to wear the colours 300 and 301 but 300 suits me for the larger portion of the year. It is long-wearing, yet seems almost sheer. It's like it invisibly perfects your entire face.
While as someone with an oily complexion, I preferred the older edition's (blue lid) more matte/satin finish, this "glowing" satin finish seems even more radiant and natural.
I'll continue to buy this product, even with the hefty price tag. With everyday use, I can only manage to make it last for just-under 1 month, but I always have a bottle on-hand for use for special events or nights where I wanna look hottest!
