I discovered something wonderful at Sephora – you can ask a sales associate to give you foundation samples to take home!!!!! This may be old news to a bunch of people, but I’m pretty excited about this. After another bad skin month, I was looking for a medium to full cover foundation and I was debating between Too Faced Born this way and Dior Forever Foundations. Too Faced was out of the running immediately when I swatched it because it was too orange. Dior was brilliant but I was humming and hawing about parting with $64 CAD for yet another liquid foundation. Well after getting the sample and playing with it for two days I have to say I totally SPLURGED and ordered this amazing product.
Can you see the bright red pimple on my chin and the burst blood vessels under my right eye? Me either 😀
010 Ivory is a good match for my extremely fair complexion. I am also extra pale due to hibernating inside since November!
For anyone with problem skin, I highly recommend this product. When I layer it over a high-end primer it lasts my entire workday before I get any shine (I like Stila, Hourglass, or Benefit primers). I love that it is so easy to apply. I created the looks above with a finger dabbing application and liberal use of mini beauty blenders around the pimples, scarring, and crow’s feet. I also like how this product applies a thick even layer but doesn’t feel thick on.
If I had to fault this product on anything it is probably that it can give a ‘mask-like’ effect if you do not add contrasting blush/bronzer/highlighter. So this is your warning: don’t skip on using your contouring kit with this product otherwise you will look like you have a mask on!
Now I’m curious about Dior’s other make-up products. Let me know if you have any opinions!
