I have a new foundation love! Meet Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Makeup.
Once I started to appreciate how amazing all the Dior cosmetics I tried were, then it was only a matter of time before I gave into the buzz about their base products. I popped to my local counter at Debenhams and let the lady do her sales pitch. I was going to either go for the BB or this one, but I’ve got a couple of BB’s on the go at the moment so I went for the more traditional foundation. Shade 20 is absolutely spot on for me, it’s what I thought I was going to be before I went in, but both the sales assistant and myself agreed this was pretty perfect colour wise.
This foundation promises a subtle velvet finish with just the right amount of correction, adding shine free radiance. And I’d agree with that. It is velvety, and it isn’t shiny and it does correct. It also does a pretty good job of looking like skin rather than foundation. What I truly love about this is that when I remove my make up at the end of the day, it’s looks pretty much the same as it did a moment after application. This stuff does not budge. The other thing that I love about it is that it just works perfectly on my tricky skin. With many products, they either slide off my (not very oily) nose, or sit in the pores, or make my not very flaky skin look incredibly flaky and I have to mess around with primers and different application techniques to make them work. This however works with whatever brush I use and without the need for any primer. It works every time and makes me flawless. It states that it gives just the right amount of correction, I’d go further than that and say that certainly for me, unless I have a blemish of epic proportions (which sadly happens too often), I can skip concealer all together.
It’s just a total winner of a foundation. The only reason I don’t reach for this every single day is that when my skin is clear, or it’s extremely hot (like it is now) then I like a sheerer finish. I am also still very much in love with the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, as I love the finish on that one too, it’s a little more shiny than this one, but you know how it is, you want a different finish on any given day. In terms of performance though this is a far and away winner.
I purchased mine from Debenhams but I’d recommend purchasing yours from Escentual where it’s currently £25.60 instead of £32!
