Dior recently released their new Diorskin Star Foundation ($50). I was browsing in Bloomingdale’s when I spotted it. I immediately knew it had to be mine. Dior claims this foundation is brightening, diffuses light, and reduces the appearance of dark spots and redness. I have been testing it out for a week and have some thoughts.
I like the consistency of this foundation. It doesn’t feel heavy or cakey on your skin. It sits nicely. I do wear a primer underneath (my Chanel Le Blanc de Chanel). The coverage is nice. I would say it’s a medium coverage and you can build it up a bit. I like all these factors. But, what I don’t like is the fact that it wears off in a few hours. The first time I wore this, within 4 or 5 hours my foundation was breaking down, especially in the chin area. So, the next day I tried it with a good primer and powder and it lasted longer about 7 to 8 hours, which is more to my liking. But, I still want a 10 to 12 hour wear. My average work day is 10 hours plus the hour before I get to work. So, this will have to be a weekend foundation because I really like the dewy look it gives me and the coverage.
Have you tried this foundation yet ?? What do you think ??
